Everyman

 

Don’t make me call you out.
I’ll bring you down to spring me back to life.
There’s truth in sacrifice.

I’ll give you one more chance.
A fleeting glance.
So, hold your head up high.
Fight this urge to fly!

I’ll be your wing.
I’ll be your prayer.
I’ll be the hardest of hardened stares.
I’ll be the ring that’s on your hand.
They’ll know I love you more than I can stand.
If it’s the case, I’ll keep the pace.
I’ll keep you running when you have to race.
You’ll understand.
I’m Everyman.
Fixin’ to help you if we can.

Don’t make me scream and shout.
You wear me out and take it too far.
Watch you pick this apart!

I like it short and sweet.
I aim to keep you in the dark right from the start!

I’ll make the day and bring you to say, “I’ve come to always want to live this way.”
I’ll make you still.
I know you will never feel as if you get your fill.
Don’t be afraid.
The longer you wait, there’ll be a habit left you’ll have to break.
And then you’ll see, because of me, this is the best place you could be.

I’ll be your wing.
I’ll be your prayer.
I’ll be the hardest of hardened stares.
I’ll be the ring that’s on your hand.
They’ll know I love you more than I can stand.
If it’s the case, I’ll keep the pace.
I’ll keep you running when you have to race.
You’ll understand.
I’m Everyman.
Fixin’ to help you if we can.

I’ll make the day and bring you to say, “I’ve come to always want to live this way.”
I’ll make you still.
I know you will never feel as if you get your fill.
Don’t be afraid.
The longer you wait, there’ll be a habit left you’ll have to break.
And then you’ll see, because of me, this is the best place you could be.
