Echo Park: Music

None Of Us

(Echo Park)
None of Us
(link above is a sample only)

When I first saw you in your prison cell
Where the doctors took your spirit
You said you’d kill just for a drink, but can’t you tell
That I don’t really want to hear it
When you got outside I tipped my hat and said goodbye
Promises just a waste of time

So now you slide back into what you say is safe
It’s familiar so it’s easy
The dreams you held onto just weren’t worth the pain
But darling can’t you see it
What you do is up to you, every things been said
So if you’re going off the deep end baby, go right ahead
Cause none of us are what we aim to be
Whatever we do, we put our trust in who can help us see

In time I hope to climb out of this shell
I believe I’m getting near it
I’ve been lost and alone awhile and I can tell
That you don’t really want to hear it
And when I said goodbye, not comprehending why
Reasons, just a waste of time, and words are the same

Because none of us are what we claim to be
Wherever we go, we all know the one can set us free

Somehow I feel you’re too smart or to blessed
I believe you’re gonna make it
Your prison cell that’s kept you down and depressed
Now you know that you can break it
What you do is up you, every things been said
If you’re going to the top now baby, go right ahead

Cause we can all be what we hope to be
Wherever we are, we’re never really far from what we dream
