We take the highs with the lows
We walk backwards through our fiery homes
And we pray for rain and it never came

We trade the cough for the sores
We walk face-first through our fathers wars
And we prayed the pain would go away or be erased

We're just not ready for it
We're just not ready for it now

So i speak through my mouth
Like a rebel soldier I'll shout it out
What my love declares, "it's been twice unfair since you left me here"

And you've changed through my eyes
It took twenty years just to realize who I am today
I was once okay in a southern state,

But I was not ready for it
I was not ready for it now

And sometimes things just have to change
And they'll stay that way, so just get ready for it
You'll over compensate and you'll make mistakes

So just get ready for it

I've spent years of my life in a desperate fight
Just to make things right with myself again
But it takes quite the man just to make amends
With the veins in my heart
They pump harder now just to fall apart when I need them most
It's been quite a year so lets make a toast
To all that we never had
All that we never said

And they come back to haunt us now
And we try to block them out
But we over compensate and we make mistakes, oh no
