Broadside – A Place To Lay Your Head lyrics

[Verse 1]
I must have been a burden the first hours of my life
The way dad pushed me and mom aside
Looking for a better life
Most of my family
Believes I’ll never be a star
Since I was old enough to make a change
I knew I’d make it far

'Cause not knowing who you are
Keeps you wanting more
Set fire to your heart
Be your own light in the dark

[Chorus]
I’m never looking back again
And I’m never settling again
I built these walls
To keep you out
I’ll chase the sun into the ground
But I’m never looking back again

[Verse 2]
Progressing smoothly now
Slowly defeating my self-doubt
Removed the dead weight of
Of the people who only
Look out for themselves
And now that I have grown
Enough to feel it in my bones
I think about the choices made
And all the winding roads

I’m sick of always being asked
“If this fails what comes next?”
Honestly, there’s nothing left
This is all I have

[Chorus]
I’m never looking back again
And I’m never settling again
I built these walls
To keep you out
I’ll chase the sun into the ground
But I’m never looking back again

[Bridge]
Undetermined, failure, burdened by the womb
Forced into this world by someone on the move
See the stars
Chase the moon
I can be anything
But nothing like you

The road is long
I’m too far gone
The burning sun is beating down
Still I’m never looking back again

[Chorus]
I’m never looking back again
And I’m never settling again
I built these walls
To keep you out
I’ll chase the sun till it burns out
And I’m never looking back again
