Transcription

Do you feel like crying won't wash it away?
Are you sick of trying to color your gray?
I know I don't know who you are
But we're all the same in one way
Brush the clouds off think of people you love
Don't lock away your sorrows don't bottle them up
And if I could I would be there
Just know that we all care

chorus
The whole world feels your pain
It'll (You'll) be ok
You'll see things change
You don't know how to move on
It seems so long
Now that yesterday is gone

Do you believe that love can make things right
That love can make the darkness a little more bright
I believe we all need a little more love
So don't cry I'll be here for you to lean on

chorus
I know you feel like hiding away (hiding in the shadows)
You feel like you need to get away from this place
I know you feel like hiding away (hiding in the shadows)
You don't need to get away from this place

chorus x2
