Lyrics:

We Are the Ones
© Sky Nelson 2008

Its Presidents' Day, and I drive to the water, I find myself laughing at nothing
I stare at the seagulls smiling above me, crying at the top of their lungs.
They just do what they can, they don't worry about the men and women on the beach who throw stones.
They laugh 'cause they want to, and sing 'cause they have to, to feed their souls

Our love is bigger than the strongest of arguments
we are the ones we've been waiting for
we won't believe what were told to believe in
we are the ones we've been waiting for

I've drawn within boundaries, took just what was offered, and found myself grasping at nothing.
God, won't you give me the life I deserve, I have suffered enough. Doesn't it show?
But I get no reply, and I stare through the silence like an arrow can tear through a heart.
I'm going to love 'cause it's Here, and live 'cause it's Now, to feed my soul

Our love is bigger than the strongest of arguments
we are the ones we've been waiting for
we won't believe what were told to believe in
we are the ones we've been waiting for

We twist and we turn to avoid all the warnings,
but this is our chance to rise up and be more than
history's turn of the screw, it's different this time!

Philosophy's not good for much; it just points at the truth, and it mocks at what's real.
I can see there is something in me more than just what I think and I feel.
Sometimes a trip to the bottom is the richest of treasures, if that's what it takes
to get back on the bike, and on with your life, and finally know what your soul has to say

LOVE IS WHAT WE ARE

Our love is bigger than the strongest of arguments
we are the ones we've been waiting for
we won't believe what were told to believe in
we are the ones are the ones are the ones are the ones
we are the ones are the ones are the ones are the ones
we are the ones are the ones are the ones are the ones
we've been waiting for
