Take take a look at the sky
Sometimes your heaven seems so far away
Take take a look under here
Where deprivation turns into decay

I've stood under this rain, felt it seep into my brain
I've shut my eyes and crawled around this mud
I'm scared of growing old, I shiver when I'm cold
Don't you think I bleed the same blood

I, I could have been you, you could have been me
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof cut me an you'll see
I could have been you, you could have been me

Wait wait before you turn off
Maybe theres a chance we can relate
Wait everybody turns on
Why deny a fact thats so innate

Its not so easy anymore, they way you used to keep score
Not so black and white the color of your sin
Take a walk inside my shoes, a path I didn't choose
Spend the night inside of my skin

I, I could have been you, you could have been me
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof cut me an you'll see
I could have been you, you could have been me

Change is turning into fear
Fear is melting into hate
With hate you justify you crime
A crime compassion can erase, erase, erase

Touch, touch what I feel
And know I believe everything I say
So go, go if you must
Remember one thing as you walk away

I, I could have been you, you could have been me
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof cut me an you'll see
I could have been you, you could have been me
