Take yourself back and see if you can track all the hurt and the pain that you've suffered Where did it lead? What did you learn? Was it meant to be? Did you get tougher? Take all your chains to the smith Melt them down Into a crown Pass it round Round and round and round... Round and round and round, the wheels they turn I say! On and on, content, without concern By and by arise the dawn of the morn I say! On and on and on the torches burn for the sake of our illumination Take all your faith To the fish Cast the net down For the lost and for the found Pass it round
I don't care who you voted for I'm overloaded I'm amazed how the picture's all double-exposed, yea But I don't need to be right Just walk beside me ...or were you Born Like This? Who cares if we're poor? The Lord is our portion. Who cares what we lose, the the work is the worship We're here! Let the people walk in through the doors, yea! We're here making music with soul and distortion But we don't need to be right Just take it all in stride We're gonna heal, gonna light up all night! ..or were you Born Like This? I heard something new that I never knew, yea And I seen something coming that we've never been through, yea A fork in the road Cracking the code Salvation of the soul Steady as she goes ...or were you Born Like This?
I want to have more fun My life has just begun I feel so wide awake I feel the give and take I want the green and the blue I want the sea and the dew I want the push and the pull I want to feel so full I want to be with you I want our dreams to come true I want to work through my pain No need to feel ashamed I want to be lifted up I want to fill my cup I want to be with you I want to be with you I want to hold your hand I want to be your man I want share my heart The light and the dark I want to understand I know that I can I want to be seen straight through I want to be with you I want to take the cake I want to want to raise the stakes I want to live life wild I want to have a child I want to see it all It’s all so beautiful I want to fight the good fight I want to join together our lives I want to be one, not two I want to be with you
“Everything is different now,” Sing the winds of change All the love I have in my heart Is enough to heal all the pain For love is true infinitely And through the truth is the way And love is tall, and love is wide And love is good and gay What you see That you are Let it be Who you are Without intermediaries, Liberty abides Beyond the broken boundaries Behold, the Human in the Heights Forgiving all apologies A name, renewed, is prepared Embracing all identities The godless, the queer What you see That you are Let it be Who you are
If there’s anything I’ve learned It’s how to play it cool If you play with the fire than burns The fire makes a play for you And you could be consumed And you could be consumed And if you look into the eye Of a stranger you can’t trust Beware of superstitious lies Lurking round that stranger’s luck He might try to pass the buck He might try to pass the buck Lessons from my life Less or more of the same Well, I fail sometimes when I try But there’s always a better way And I bet I will win today I say! I bet I will win today Wow, man! I’m a King of a Castle Made Of Sand -- A stand-in for a Kingdom without end...
