Before You Were Born Lyrics

by Toad The Wet Sprocket

How can it happen that every time
You ask us this question the answer seems like a lie
You know what we're saying and you know what it mean
And it's always sincere God knows
But it never gets through the you need

Before you were born someone kicked in the door
There's no place for you here, stay back where you belong
Before you were born someone kicked in the door
You are not wanted here anymore

God damn the people who left you in pain
God damn the father without face, without name
And god damn the lovers who never showed up
And god damn the wounds that show how deep a word can cut

Before you were born someone kicked in the door
There's no place for you here, stay back where you belong
Before you were born someone kicked in the door
You are not wanted here, stay back where you belong

Hey! How can it happen now that you know cause
Nothing is changing and everything's wrong
Pain is the healing and the tears sting like alcohol
Just keep on there breathing
We'll help you down long, long road back home

Before you were born someone kicked in the door
There's no place for you here, stay back where you belong
Before you were born someone kicked in the door
You are not wanted here anymore

Before you were born someone kicked in the door
There's no place for you here, stay back where you belong
Before you were born someone kicked in the door
You are not wanted here, just stay back where you belong

Before you were born someone kicked in the door
There's no place for you here, stay back where you belong
Before you were born someone kicked in the door
We'll help you down the long road
