All We Are

“All We Are” by OneRepublic

I tried to paint you a picture
…the colors were all wrong.
Black and white didn’t fit you,
And all along you were shaded with patience.
You’re strokes of everything
That I need just to make it
But I can see that

Lord knows I’ve failed you time and again,
But you and me were all right.

We won’t say our goodbyes
You know it’s better that way
We won’t break, we won’t die
It’s just a moment of change
All we are
Is everything that’s right
All we need
A lover’s alibi

I walked a minute in your shoes
They never would’ve fit
I figured there’s nothing to lose
I need to get some perspective on these words
Before I write them down
You’re an island
And my ship has run aground

Every single day that I can breathe
You changed my philosophy
I’m never going to let you pass me by
