it took his breath away holding the bank page
he got the letter they're gonna take their house away
i'm bout to have a daughter he yells it in the air
felling the weight of a world that just don't care
he lit a cigarette felt in on his lip
driving home on a long road with regret
he pull's the window down shout's it out loud
pushing the pedal and praying lord help us now
he's looking for a reason watching the sun coming down

can you hear when we call
there where we fall
standing our backs against the wall
Top of our lungs hallelujah
where pain and love bleed into one
baby when all you see is darkness
coming down now
we all need forgiveness
coming round now

it was monday night under the street lights
she's turing seventeen in seven nights
out on the fairgrounds walking in mono tone
she kicks a bottle as empty as her soul
on the road alone in a house that's half home
they give her pills just to kill when she feels alone
she's looking for a reason watching the sun coming down

can you hear when we call
there where we fall
standing our backs against the wall
Top of our lungs hallelujah
where pain and love bleed into one
baby when all you see is darkness
coming down now
we all need forgiveness
coming round now

take these broken streets
take these broken dreams
hold my hand like we we're walking free
tell me it will change i see it in your face
the hope the fear the love the faith

i'm working late again slaving to make the rent
i'm slanging coffee with dreams heavy as cement
they're coming one by one the face of falling love
i write a song with a prayer as i slide the cup

can you hear when we call
there where we fall
standing our backs against the wall
Top of our lungs hallelujah
where pain and love bleed into one
baby when all you see is darkness
coming down now
we all need forgiveness
can you hear when we call
there where we fall
standing our backs against the wall
at the Top of our lungs how far we've come
were pain and love bleed into one
all that we need its so bitter sweet
the pain that opens our eyes to see
baby when all you see is darkness
coming down now
we all need forgiveness
coming round now
