To live without a savior, answer to his name,

Like a kid behind the counter remembering your name,
Shouldn't be afraid, shouldn't be ashamed
Shouldn't be afraid, shouldn't be ashamed
You should live how you want, stay with me, we should stay apart
If it's not like I told you, then it's still your call

Just shouldn't ever have to be this hard
Like a man on the sidewalk remembering your face,
You should live how you want, stay with me, we should stay apart
Shouldn't look away, shouldn't be afraid
He remembers when they still wore gaiters, World War One
Just shouldn't ever have to be this hardShouldn't be afraid, shouldn't be ashamed

If it's not like I told you, then it's still your call
