Lyrics

And the words meant so much to Olivia
As she sat in her room on top of the bed
Music in her ears and headphones on her head
And she dreamed of the night, and the lights and the stage
She’d be standing on
With the war of the crowd singing outloud
Daddy’s in the front row looking so proud
It’s like she doesn’t need a reason
Shes free to close her eyes
Pretend it doesn’t matter
To live beyond the lies
She starts to feel the shiver
Her soul begins to rise
It transcends towards the heavens
Tears well in her eyes
and it’d feel so good when she’d sing the words
When she’d sing the words
When she’d sing the words outloud

Juanita gave birth to a boy with his Daddy’s sense of melody
I remember some nights before she’d turn out the lights
How she would sing to me
She said the man she know before they went and sent him to the war
He was a different guy
He used to spin me on the floor
Never leave me wanting more until it felt like I could fly
It’s like he didn’t need a reason
He was free to close his eyes
Pretend it didn’t matter
To live beyond the lies
He would start to feel the shiver
His soul begin to rise
Transcends towards the heavens
Tears well in his eyes
And it’d feel so good
When he’d sing the words

And we can sing about elation
Or focus on the falls
We can cry about the heartache
Or live beyond the walls
We will overcome our demons
At least that’s how it seems
When our voices lift our spirits
From a whisper to a scream
And we can sing about elation
Or focus on the falls
We can cry about the heartache
Or live beyond the walls
We will overcome our demons
At least that’s how it seems
When our voices lift our spirits
From a whisper to a scream

And it feels so good
When we sing the words
When we sing the words
When we sing the words outloud
So sing em out! Sing me the words outloud
Sing me the words outloud
Sing the words outloud
