Pat Green — Barricades lyrics

Close my eyes
Close my eyes
And ask myself a question
And ask myself a question
Why is I do what I do
Why is I do what I do
Am I looking for some happy definition?
Am I looking for some happy definition?
Of Life, and love and the corners of the truth
Life, and love and the corners of the truth
Or am I just some curious bystander
Or am I just some curious bystander
Looking at the world through a child's eyes
Looking at the world through a child's eyes
Sunlight, always shining on my shoulders
Sunlight, always shining on my shoulder
While the storm rages on deep inside, deep inside
While the storm rages on deep inside

And it seems so hard
And it seems so hard
To keep it all together
To keep it all together
When the walls are fallin' down
When the walls are fallin' down
On every side
On every side
I'll be damned
I'll be damned
If I give up on it easy
If I give up on you easy
I've worked too hard
I've worked too hard
To get the barricades this high
To put the barricades aside

Now This world is a stage
This world is a stage
We're meant to play on
We're meant to play on
Direction from inside
Direction from inside
On what to do
On what to do
I know I should have all the answers
I don't know how I could have all the answers
Deep inside I haven't got a clue, not a clue
When inside I don't have a clue

And it seems so hard
And it seems so hard
To keep it all together
To keep it all together
When the walls are fallin' down
When the walls are fallin' down
On every side
On every side
I'll be damned
I'll be damned
If I give up on it easy
If I give up on you easy
I've worked too hard
I've worked too hard
To get the barricades this high
To put the barricades aside

Told myself that I would be ok
Tell me something
Told myself I'd be alright
And I'll be okay
No doubt
Told myself I'd be alright
Somewhere low I know
No doubt
That I've been lyin
So when do I know
I can't believe it took 30 years
When I've been lyin'?
To figure that shit out
I can't believe it took 30 years

To figure that shit out
And it seems so hard

To keep it all together
And it seems so hard
When the walls are fallin' down
To keep it all together
On every side
When the walls are fallin' down
I'll be damned
On every side
If I give up on it easy
I'll be damned
I've worked too hard
If I give up on you easy
To get the barricades this high
I've worked too hard
To put the barricades aside
