lyrics

Kicking my heels in the star light
Streetlights cast on curbs
Letting our hearts run roughshod around this world

I remember it felt like everything
All that I could know
But life has a way to humble you and make you grow

The want of a better tomorrow, is the want of a better past
With a spark in the dark that ignites us to make it last

If you were built in a small place
With portraits yet unseen
It’s hard to know where you’re going, or where you’ve been

The flash of light could have blinded
The notes could have gone unheard
When you find a pain that can’t be contained in a word

The want of a better tomorrow, is the want of a better past
With a spark in the dark that ignites us to make it last

So what do you do once you’ve seen it
That which can’t be unknown
Internalize the spotlight and see what’s shown

Let’s feed the frightened blind spot
Ignore the time of day
All the while knowing it will be OK

The want of a better tomorrow, is the want of a better past
With a spark in the dark that ignites us to make it last

The want of a better tomorrow, is the want of a better past
With a spark in the dark that ignites us to make it last

Kicking my heels in the star light
Streetlights cast on curbs
Letting our hearts run roughshod and rule this world
