Some People Will Tell You

from Endless Summers by Peter Arvidson



Some people will tell you
That you'll never amount to anything
What do they know?

Some people will build you
Up to break you down again
What do they know?

Keep painting white walls
Everything you ever saw
Keep painting purple hues
Eventually we'll get to you

Run around this town
With your best friend
All that's ever said
Is, be different

And when you call
Make sure they hear
You roar
Not before

Some people say you'll never be
Much of anything
Keep pounding the walls
Until they feel all your faults

Taking cheap shots
Taking wheelbarrows
And we say run down the mountain side
With the hurt, and hurt lives

Soothe, it's time to heal
Take it all outside

You're shoulder to shoulder
Cheap shots in the side

It's alright
Because after this play
We'll be souls on the other side
