lyrics

Wear Your Shoes

Verse 1: Mama says I laugh too much
But sometimes it’s just not enough
I guess I’m like a child who runs and hides.
You will look me in the eye
And it’s as if you see inside
All the worn out places that I tried.
You still listen anyway

CHORUS: I am dressed in my own jeans
They’re blue and bland and in-between
I’m trying hard to change my ways
It’s not as easy as it seems
But you stand perfectly in brighter shades
What I would do to be like you
What I would do if I could wear your shoes.

Verse 2: True to form
I’m back to who I was before
Afraid of showing who I am
To the world.
You always tell me just enough
To help me out and build me up
I’ve been ignored but you’re not one to judge
Even if I’m so far gone…

CHORUS

Bridge: I would be invincible
Remarkable, meaningful
Nothing in the world would be impossible
I’d be unstoppable
Travel at the speed of light a million miles, I could fly

I am dressed in my own jeans
They’re blue and bland and in-between
I’m trying hard to change my ways
It’s not as easy as it seems

CHORUS
What I would do to be like you, what I would do if I could wear your shoes
What I would do to be like you, what I would do
if I could wear your shoes.
