  • Hubcaps and ashtrays
    I was born but I wasn't raised
    The big wheel the black space
    Tried my best but wasn't praised

    Hell is so close to Heaven
    Hell is so close to Heaven

    Hold on don't look back
    You know we're better were better than that
    Lost and thrown away
    You know we're better were better than that

    We are the strays (whoah)
    We are the strays (whoah)

    Train tracks to the stage
    Play that role, the one you made
    Long nights and the worst days
    Lived it all, but I didn't break

    Hell is so close to Heaven
    Hell is so close to Heaven

    Hold on don't look back
    You know we're better were better than that
    Lost and thrown away
    You know we're better were better than that

    We are the strays (whoah)
    We are the strays (whoah)

    My whole life they said I'd be nothing
    Well I'm something
    And I would rather be the stray
    Than be nothing to no one at all

    Hubcaps and ashtrays
    I was born but wasn't raised

    Hold on don't look back
    You know were better were better than that
    Lost and thrown away
    You know we're better were better than that

    Cause we are the strays (whoah)
    We are the strays (whoah) Writer/s: JOHN FELDMANN, KELLIN QUINN, SIMON WILCOX
