lyrics

I see life on the other side
Even though politics just confuse me
Am I just so naïve?

I think it might be over-drive
Out of my depression so now
I’m preaching hope
On to the sailors on a sinking boat

And I hope this does not offend you
I hope this does not offend you…

I think that for once there’s not a
Firestorm oh am I missing the point?
Should I become more aware?

I am feeling bad because I’m
So so happy at this time
But I wish I was one of those ‘worldly girls’
I know that he loves

And I hope this does not offend you
I hope this does not offend you…

Could it be always, that I’m just overcome?
Could it be always that I’m just overcome?

Or could it…could it be gold that he wants, gold that he wants?
Could it …could it be gold that he wants, gold that he wants?

I see life on the other side
Even though politics just confuse me
Am I just so naïve?

But why compare myself to those
Who aren’t me. True self-esteem
Is appreciating who we are
And not who we could be

And I hope this does not offend you
I hope this does not offend you…
