Lyric "All We Are"

[Verse 1]
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
Your 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

[Chorus 1]
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

[Chorus 2]
All we are, all we are
Is everything that’s right
All we need, all we need
A lover’s alibi

[Verse 2]
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 & my ship
Has run aground


[Chorus 1]

[Chorus 2]

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

[Chorus 1][x2]

[Chorus 2]

[Chorus 1]




OneRepublic is an American pop rock band. Formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2002 by lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act. In late 2003, after OneRepublic played shows throughout the Los Angeles area, a number of record labels approached the band with interest, but OneRepublic ultimately signed with Velvet Hammer, an imprint of Columbia Records.
