I had a place to live in
I had a job worth quitting
I had some things I had to chase
Mistakes, but we all made them
We celebrate being young
I had the chance to run away
And I wish upon a satellite
That wrong can turn to right
Believe me

That we are our only chance in the world
If faith should fail us
Then hope will see us through
And we are our only chance in the world
So stand for something
Cause something's overdue
I don't ask for much
But this could define a lifetime
A dead man's hand
We are the only friends we ever had

They called it education
I saw a means to an end
I saw my life another way
To live and die a king
I thought there could be worse fates to land upon
And I'd go back home
When it all blew up in my face
And I wish upon a satellite
That wrong can turn to right
Believe me

That we are our only chance in the world
If faith should fail us
Then hope will see us through
And we are our only chance in the world
So stand for something
Cause something's overdue
I don't ask for much
But this could define a lifetime
A dead man's hand
We are the only friends we ever had

You need a map to see how far
I was sticking out my neck
We all have things that we all second guess
And fears of being ordinary
And I wish upon a satellite
That wrong can turn to right
Believe me

That we are our only chance in the world
If faith should fail us
Then hope will see us through
And we are our only chance in the world
So stand for something
Cause something's overdue
I don't ask for much
But this could define a lifetime
A dead man's hand
We are the only friends we ever had
A dead man's hand
We are the only friends we ever had

    General CommentFirst one to comment on this awesome song! Okay but I think this song is about like finding yourself and realizing that in the end, even if things go wrong, "We are the only friends we ever had".It's not super well thought out but I love the song so I thought I'd comment.
