Identity of One

Location

Always told to laugh

Never told to cry

Had to hold it in and raise hope on the inside

 

Always told to run

Never told to hide

Left along among the hopefulls that crawl by

 

The time we wait to be told we're less than great

Found a spot within the cave we call our mistakes

We are praised and understood until the beating hearts turn good

A glimpse of what we've always wanted

 

This is who we are and we will be forever

A soft melodic rhythm that can stand on it's own

This is who we are and we will be forever

While you lose your breath, promise me an Identity of One

 

Always told to love

Never told to hate

Only took a moment to realize I'm awake

Not with spirit or with change shall we ever rearrange

Until we realize what tomorrow brings

 

After all, this is who we are and we will be forever

A soft melodic rhythm that can stand on it's own

This is who we are and I promise we will be this way forever

While you lose your breath, please promise me an Identify of One
