Lyrics:

You gotta try a little tenderness. Sometimes you've gotta let go.

You can't measure life in weeks and days, but you can stick a glass out in the rain.

Sometimes you gotta hurt a little bit, so you can move on.

You can't just leave the lights on through the night,

You have to look around when it's light.

 

Ohh Mother, Ohh Sister. How do I become someone who loves like I should?

God, am I so hurt that I can't love like I could?

 

When nothings feeling like rock, and everything hurts the same.

You can't save lives if you're on your own, to defeat the dark you can't be alone.

 

Ohh Brother, Ohh Father. When I become someone who loves like I should

It's because I'm done fighting this world with stones and wood.

I'll hold on to us to save our lives like He would.

God, set me free to love like someone who should.
