Hey friend, why are we always hiding
It's no wonder that we're sinking down
Why should we stand in lonely shadows
With so much light around

Hey friend, why are we always crying
So many tears are gonna dry us out
Whatever they're selling we gotta stop buying
'Cause our pockets are empty now

I've thought about it
And I've prayed about it, out loud
Out loud
And we can talk about it
We can pray about it, out loud
Out loud

Hey friend, why are we always fighting
Who's left to hit when everybody's down
I know we're afraid
But love is trying to save us anyhow


Ain't it time we need to change
Need to change
A few things
A few things
I think it's time we need to change
A few things
A few things

Repeat chorus
