"Tell Me A Story" as written by Phillip La Don Jr. Phillips and David Ryan Harris....
Tell you a story and it starts with time
Moves to how you live and learn how to die
Another phase in this world that brings deaths to life
So don't believe in everything you see
Because what you want might not be what you need
Hold your breath jump with me and we'll survive
'Cause you are the sun, that leads me to the light

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

Tell me a story long and true
We aren't what we say we are what we do
Just pieces of a puzzle to find, where we stand
Just confused so you are the moon, that pulls me through the night

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

Hope is just a ray of what everyone should see
Alone is the street where you found me
Scared of what's behind and scared of what's in front
Live with what you have now and make the best of what's to come

So you are the sun that leads me
You are the moon that pulls me
You are the light that leads me
You are the moon that pulls me

    General CommentInteresting to compare the "scared of what's behind" lyric with the similar phrase from Mumford and Sons' "After the Storm" ("Well I'm scared of what's behind, and what's before"). I'm curious if it's just a coincidence or an intentional homage.
