Jen Foster – We Were Gods lyrics

Words by Jen Foster
Music by Jen Foster & Danny Torroll

Light the stars in your eyes
Quiet doubts in your mind
Follow me to the place where our colors bled
The young, invincible ones
Rockets aimed at the sun
We never once questioned where we were going
They called us all wrong, and they trashed all our songs
They dressed us for church, and they threw us in blind
We gathered our hands, and we turned towards the wind
It was our time
We were gods, we were gods
We were gods, at least, we thought
I will never forget
Days we skipped out of class
The subtle crash of a kiss still forbidden
When time was our time to waste
And love was ours to forsake
And all our biggest mistakes gave us all our best stories
We threw out the map, and we tossed up our caps
We swore that we'd break every brick in that wall
But it took all our breath when we found that they'd set us up
To fall
We were gods, we were gods
We were gods, at least, we thought.....
Before we were lawyers
And homeless self-employers
Before we crash-landed
Into the sky...
We were gods, we were gods
