the milk carton kids – younger years lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
above the plains of omaha
i think of all the sufferin’ i saw
the soakin’ of the pavement
sprawled upon a land without a law
everythin’ i loved, everythin’ i found what i hoped for
frightened and surrounded
who else is there to turn to anymore?

[chorus]
oh i held out my arms
oh i held out my arms
held out my arms

[verse 2]
there was a time i spoke the truth
but my younger years were wasted on my youth
somewhere i awakened
with a crack to a poundin’ on the roof
sure i heard the sound
as evidence, or better yet as proof
i was naked as the day i was born
‘neath the fullness of the moon

[chorus]
oh i held out my arms
oh i held out my arms
held out my arms

[bridge]
far away i hear singin’
far away a song

[verse 3]
the blinding light of morning came
flooding through the window like a friend
like a wild revelation
like a shining invitation to attend
spoken as a prayer
unbroken by despair i make amends
the love inside our hearts
is the only kind of savior we’ve been sent

[chorus]
oh i held out my arms
oh i held out my arms
held out my arms
