Ben Torres – The Life We're Given lyrics

It crushes me to see
A loved one go through misery
By letting the thought of what could of been
Get so deep under their skin

They trap themselves in a made up cage
Then proceed to throw away the key

(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
The path we envision
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
Lies concealed and hidden
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
When our thoughts take away from
The life we're given

Oh, It's funny how it's in our nature
To worry about what can't be changed
To live and spend our whole lives in the footsteps
Of yesterday

Remember destiny awaits
For those who fill their souls with faith


If only we could be set free
From these chains that bind us

(chorus) 2X
