Teach me the rhythm, that are moving your feet,
Sing me the blues, that are swaying your dreams
& Call me by your name, show me that love is okay

Show me, show me, show me why we're living
Show me what the street lights are missing
Show me there's something for everyone
I'll believe it, I let it deceive me
Show a little humility, show a little empathy
Oh!
Teach me the rhythm, that are moving your feet,
Sing me the blues, that are swaying your dreams
& Call me by your name, show me that love is okay 'n'
Take a cup of sugar, lend it to your local hooker & she will never come back again, she will have found a reason to stay off of the back of broken men. Now, they will never know love again, they never knew it within, they've had to find it at a foreign chin, lips touching the skin, bones pounding against, flesh taking the rest, while the soul is taking a break. So.
Give me, give me, trust in the season
Give me a reason to save you from treason
Give me an hour to tear up & devour, your dreams, I desire.
now, take your broken wings, glue them back together again, darling stay in the ring. ‘n’
Show a little humility, show a little empathy
Oh!
Teach me the rhythm, that are moving your feet,
Sing me the blues, that are swaying your dreams
& Call me by your name, show me that love is okay 'n'
Yeah...
I've seen pain greater than mine, but it's not a competition, and I didn't come here to win it. I long for the dreams of which I had, back when blood was running thick, scars healing quick, innocent by heart, yet born to take part in treating each other harsh, never stood a fighting chance. But I'll dream for both of us, till your courage reclaims, and there's a true north I know, & I'll keep walking through the cold, I'll keep a light on, keep the passion warm.

Just show me, why we're living
Show me what the street lights are missing
Show me there's something for everyone ‘n’
Teach me the rhythm, that are moving your feet,
Sing me the blues, that are swaying your dreams
& Call me by your name, show me that love is okay
I see people having fun, I see people falling in love,
there's no denying, my core is shaking and these rhymes keep on breaking
C'mon and break it to me, make it to me, or just fake it to me & I'll see
yeah. I've seen this love come & go, I can see that this is hard on you
I write to you in a foreign tune
I surrender my guard, now you're in charge.
I'll break! I'll break down again, I do not care when, cause I will raise to my feet, and you'll see, I stand stronger, you'll believe it.
