I Could've Been You Lyrics

Take, take a look at the sky
Sometimes your heaven seeems so far away
Take, take a look under here
Where deprivation turns into decay
I've stood under this rain
Felt it seep into my brain
I've shut my eyes and crawled around this mud
I'm scared of growing old
I shiver when I'm cold
Don't you think I bleed the same blood

I, I could have been you
You could have been me
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof
Cut me and you'll see
I could have been you
You could have been me

Wait, wait before you turn off
Maybe there's a chance we can relate
Wait everybody turns on
Why deny a fact that's so innate
It's not so easy anymore
They way you used to keep score
Not so black and white the colors of your skin
Take a walk inside my shoes
A path I didn't choose
Spend the night inside of my skin


Change is turning into fear
Fear is melting into hate
With hate you justify your crime
A crime compassion can erase
Erase erase

Touch, touch what I feel
And know I believe everything I say
So go, go if you must
Remember one thing as you walk away
