7 Seconds – If I Abide lyrics

Encouraged to speak, shown every sign
Learned to never waste the time
Taught to have an open
(Mind)

Why give me a heart
When you won't let it beat?
And I'm not afraid, I've still got hope
But now you tell me I belong

Do I stay and sing this same old
(Song)
Why give me a key
When you won't set me free?

And you listen to our song
And you wonder what's going on
You say that growth's okay
But do it by the rules

But if I abide, how will I grow or learn?
Is this one big lie or have we been misled?
It's time to practice what we preach
It's time to move ahead

Now I've lived awhile
Not much I haven't tried
But tell me what to do and you'll see
How high I can fly

Why give me the space
When you won't let me breathe?
It's time to make things fresh
Bring in the new

Put our minds together
And see beyond this tunnel view
Why give me two eyes
When you won't let me see?

And you listen to our song
And you wonder what's going on
You say that growth's okay
But do it by the rules

But if I abide, how will I grow or learn?
Is this one big lie or have we been misled?
It's time to practice what we preach
It's time to move ahead
