LyricsEdit

There ain't no man can save me
There ain't no man can enslave me
Ain't no man or men that can change the shape my soul is in
There ain't nobody here
Who can cause me pain or raise my fear cause I got only love to share
If you're looking for a truth I'm proof you'll find it there

Scott:
You got to serve something, ain't that right
I know it gets dark but there's always a light
You don't have to buy in to get into the club
Trade your worries
You gotta show up if you wanna be seen
If you matters to you, ma, it matters to me
I'm gonna fall hard, yeah I know I am
When the clowns crack up I laugh with them

There ain't no man can save me
There ain't no man can enslave me
Ain't no man or men that can change the shape my soul is in
There ain't nobody here
Who can cause me pain or raise my fear cause I got only love to share
If you're looking for a truth I'm proof you'll find it there

Scott:
You say you look funny, I say you're a star
I say you're whatever you think you are
Watch your naysayers fall right in line
If we believe it they'll say "She is so pretty
He is so fine"

There ain't no man can save me
There ain't no man can enslave me
There ain't no man or men that can change the shape my soul is in
There ain't nobody here
Who can cause me pain or raise my fear cause I got only love to share
If you're looking for a truth I'm proof you'll find it there

Seth:
You got to go somewhere, ain't that true
Not a whole lot of time for me or you
Got a whole lot of reasons to be mad, let's not pick one
I live in a room at the top of the stairs
Got my windows wide open and nobody cares
And I got no choice but to get right up when the sun comes through

Ain't no man can save me
There ain't no man can enslave me
There ain't no man or men that can change the shape my soul is in
There ain't nobody here
Who can cause me pain or raise my fear cause I got only love to share
If you're looking for a truth I'm proof you'll find it there
If you're looking for a truth I'm proof you'll find it there
If you're looking for a truth I'm proof you'll find it
