One of Us

Album: Lost in Translation (2017)
  • Everybody needs a place to call their home
    Everybody needs someone to call their own
    Even when you're lonely, know you're not alone
    You're one of us, one of us, one of us
    One of us

    (Oh)
    Is this your starring role
    Or just a cameo?
    (Who are you living for, living for, living, oh)
    When you can't take no more
    'Cause when it rains, it pours
    (What are you living for, living for, living)
    I don't got much, but I got heart and soul
    I found myself through all the highs and lows
    (Oh)
    Will you drown in the pain
    Or go dance in the rain?
    (What are you living for, living for, living)

    Everybody needs a place to call their home
    Everybody's skin is different, not their bones
    Even when you're lonely, know you're not alone
    You're one of us, one of us, one of us
    One of us
    Bring the sunshine in
    The happy days
    The hardship, too
    We'll find a way
    So raise your flag
    One last time
    Before the day is through, I promise you
    That we will laugh about it all
    And we'll celebrate the things we've done for years to come
    'Cause that's what friends, that's what friends are for

    (Oh)
    What have you done so far?
    Are you satisfied?
    (Who are you living for, living for, living, oh)
    It takes a mighty fall
    Before you learn to walk
    (What are you living for, living for, living)
    'Cause life's too short to take it as it goes
    So stand up tall, and let the whole world know
    (Oh)
    So will you lose the game
    Or go and claim your fame?
    (What are you living for, living for, living)

    Everybody needs a place to call their home
    Everybody needs someone to call their own
    Even when you're lonely, know you're not alone
    You're one of us, one of us, one of us
    One of us
    Bring the sunshine in
    The happy days
    The hardship, too
    We'll find a way
    So raise your flag
    One last time
    Before the day is through, I promise you
    That we will laugh about it all
    And we'll celebrate the things we've done for years to come
    'Cause that's what friends, that's what friends are for

    (That's what friends, that's what friends are for)
    (That's what friends, that's what friends are for)

    We will laugh about it all
    And we'll celebrate the things we've done, the years to come
    The good, the bad, the sweet, the sad
    We will laugh about it all
    And we'll celebrate, 'cause that's what friends
    That's what friends are for

    You're not alone
    You're one of us, one of us, one of us
