O.A.R. – The Architect lyrics

Young man come to me
And asked me for a smoke
Straight off of Bourbon Street
Alley cat with a dirty coat

He said it's hard out here just being me
And the people ain't the way that I want them to be
When I get the chance to build this world I see
Make me believe, this life's for me, and I will be free

That night the architect can't sleep
He laying out his plan
For the building of a new foundation
Put together by a million hands

Beyond the wires just meant to fly
Getting out there beyond the fences, into the sky
You know I'll find a place for my design
A new space for me and my piece of mind, yeah

I'm gonna build a home by the ocean
Underneath the sky
Gonna leave the door wide open
So I can see everything

Gonna build a home by the ocean
Burried in the sand
Gonna leave the door wide open
So I can sing

I'm gonna build a home by the ocean
Underneath the sky
Gonna leave the door wide open
So I can see everything

Gonna build a home by the ocean
Burried in the sand
I'm gonna leave the door wide open
So I can sing

Woah Woah Woah

So I can see everything
