Melissa Etheridge

take take a look at the sky

sometimes your heaven seeems so far away

take take a look under here

where deprevation turns into decay

i've stood under this rain

felt it seep into my brain

i've shut my eyes and crawled around this mud

i'm scared of growing old

i shiver when i'm cold

dont you think i bleed the same blood


i, i could have been you

you could have been me

one small change that shapes your destiny

if you want the proof

cut me an you'll see

i could have been you

you could have been me

wait wait before you turn off

maybe theres a chance we can relate

wait everybody turns on

why deny a fact thats so innate

its not so easy anymore

they way you used to keep score

not so black and white the color of your sin

take a walk inside my shoes

a path i didnt choose

spend the night inside of my skin


change is turning into fear

fear is melting into hate

with hate you justify you crime

a crime compassion can erase

erase erase

touch touch what i feel

and know i believe evrything i say

so go go if you must

remember one thing as you walk away
