If you and I had been
Anything less than these tormented souls
We would have never have gone so far
To become what we are

If you and I had never seen the world
Through the eyes of a child
We would never have wanted to stop time
Sleepers passing by

If you and I had been even less
Than these disenfranchised minds
We would have looked the other way
As we passed each other by

And for the things I know
From the broken who I ask
Is to look beyond this place
Stop staring at the clouds
Thinking only what went wrong

I know there are days
Too dark and hard to take
I hope you know
This is just one day you'll have to face
This is not the whole of your life

This is one day
This is one day
This is one day
One day out of the whole of your life
One day out of the whole of your life
