All We Are - Album Version

Lyricist: OneRepublic    Composer: 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 and I can see

Lord knows I failed you time and again
But you and me are alright

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
All we are is everything that's right
All we need
All we need
A lover's alibi
Yeah oh

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 is running ground

Lord knows I fail you time and again
But you and me are alright

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
All we are is everything that's right
All we need
All we need
A lover's alibi
Oh

Every single day that I can breathe you change my philosophy
I'm never gonna let you pass me by

So don't say your goodbyes
You know its better that way
We won't break
We won't die
It's just a moment of change
Ooh

So don't say your 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
All we are is everything that's right
All we need
All we need
A lover's alibi
Yeah
Ooh

So don't say our goodbyes
I know it's better
We won't break
We won't die
Ooh
