Origins

Album: Young & Old (2012)
  • Sensitive heart, you're doomed from the start
    Meant to play the penitent part
    Inquisitive mind, you're destined to find
    Tempted fate and knowledge divine

    View in there a pitied pair
    Denoted by a scene unfair
    Will you make my children bear
    The consequences everywhere?

    Is it so hard to forgive
    The way that we have been made to live?
    How much is required to set things right?
    Have you confused your power with mine?
    Oh whoa oh

    View in there a pitied pair
    Denoted by a scene unfair
    Will you make my children bear
    The consequences everywhere?

    Imminent you seem to be
    A picture of fragility
    What is it that you think of me?
    Is it a woman that you see?

    Is it so hard to forgive
    The way that we have been made to live?
    How much is required to set things right?
    Have you confused your power with mine?
    Oh whoa oh

    Is it so hard to forgive
    The way that we have been made to live?
    How much is required to set things right?
    Have you confused your power with mine?

    Oh whoa oh
    Oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
    Oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
    Oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
    Oh oh ooh oh oh ooh oh oh Writer/s: Alaina Moore-Riley, Patrick Riley
