If you talk everybody down, it’s less competition for the crown You know how to hurt a soul If you took all of your hate, and put it up, up, up on the stage Maybe you’d learn to let things go Everyone’s deserving of love But if you jump on other’s hurt, what are you deserving of? I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like you Opinion is not fact, and nobody deserves to be attacked Just because they don’t agree with you, with you Everyone has their own voice, and should be allowed their own choice And not to be abused Everyone’s deserving of love But if you preach so much hatred, what are you deserving of? I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like You only see through your eyes and ignore the rest You see yourself with more and us with less But you make it so hard With your sword in place of your heart I don’t know how to love somebody like you I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like I don’t know how to love somebody like you

A man walks down the grey street to the council house on the corner His wife is as beautiful as the first day that he saw her But the rent needs paying, no matter how much praying Even against his will He looks at the clouds, wishing somehow Love would pay the bills The pressure is building and rising and pulling us down, down And their answer is always the same Money can't buy happiness Well ain't that funny? Well ain't that funny? That money can't buy happiness Yet it's so hard to be happy when we don't have any A young girl tries to keep up with the latest trends at school Keeps chasing those that want for nothing and ends up the fool Says 'Mummy won't you buy me this, Daddy won't you buy me that? Why do I have to go without?' It's a hard lesson to learn so young, what life is about The pressure is building and rising and pulling us down, down And their answer is always the same Money can't buy happiness Well ain't that funny? Well ain't that funny? That money can't buy happiness Yet it's so hard to be happy when we don't have any Money can't buy happiness Well ain't that funny? Well ain't that funny? That money can't buy happiness Yet it's so hard to be happy when we don't have any Money can't buy happiness Well ain't that funny? Well ain't that funny? That money can't buy happiness Yet it's so hard to be happy when we don't have any At all

There's a blank space where understanding should be A lack of sincerity, in the words you say to me And a brutal mentality That if you don't see it then you don't believe it And if you don't feel it then you don't have to deal with it Got to keep your doors closed, if you've secrets that no one knows Just because it's invisible, you don't think that it's critical Or is it the colour of my skin, or where I fit in the margins Or just because I'm a girl? This body started a war, I can't ignore When your wings just won't fly When your tears just won't dry You can find hope in every corner of these oceans Rather than quick to judge You could be quick to love And your hand could make up a thousand That could move a mountain All these conversations, about these situations That you promise make a change You wanna make a difference but you never listen So things just stay the same So if you climb to the top or if you fall to the bottom You've got all of these problems but you don't want to solve them All your feelings and thoughts All these actions, they're not nature they are taught This body started a war, we can't ignore When your wings just won't fly When your tears just won't dry You can find hope in every corner of these oceans Rather than quick to judge You could be quick to love And your hand could make up a thousand That could move a mountain Find your freedom in writing, despite what the world is saying Find your freedom in writing And even if the mountain's too high, we'll just push it aside When your wings just won't fly When your tears just won't dry You can find hope in every corner of these oceans Rather than quick to judge You could be quick to love And your hand could make up a thousand That could move a mountain

We stand on opposite sides of the room Both with passionate points of view The taste of battlefield remains I wish that this was more than a game But I can't hold on to the sharpest end of the knife How do we remain so strong? When we've lost all the pieces that belonged? You never give me the answers that I need And I question whether you ever loved me How do we justify a war like this? How do we justify a war like this? How can we justify a war? We keep running in circles over and over And as we do, the bombs fall closer We both deserve to walk away We won't survive if we choose to stay And we can't believe in something that's failing How do we remain so strong? When we've lost all the pieces that belonged? You never give me the answers that I need And I question whether you ever loved me Put your gun down, I'll put mine down too And we'll give up on this love Before it gives up on us You turn around, I won't chase after you We'll find peace in our lives Just not here, tonight Tonight How do we remain so strong? When we've lost all the pieces that belonged? You never give me the answers that I need And I question whether you ever loved me How do we justify a war like this? How do we justify a war like this? We can't justify a war

Apologies, stuck in our throats We are guilty, of just being ourselves Our minds are walking; our legs are standing stuck down We are all fools of falling in and out We are all fools of falling in and out In the deepest seas As we long to breathe We’re just fighting for air Under the darkest skies As the clouds cry Our skin is washed bare As we fall off our feet We are held only, By the fragile gravity Insecurities, on the tip of our tongues We cannot run from who we are and all that we have done We are all fools for falling in and out We are all fools for falling in and out In the deepest seas As we long to breathe We’re just fighting for air Under the darkest skies As the clouds cry Our skin is washed bare As we fall off our feet We are held only, By the fragile gravity By the fragile gravity The only thing Holding me In the deepest seas As we long to breathe We’re just fighting for air Under the darkest skies As the clouds cry Our skin is washed bare As we fall off our feet We are held only, By the fragile gravity
