by Clare Adella



Recorded on July 2013


I get blisters when I'm in the sun too long,
And I cry too hard when things go wrong.
And if I feel like I'm not listened to
I wonder why I'm always taken for a fool

'Cause somethings in life can't be undone
In the end it's a fight for everyone
To know the truth and then to persevere
Makes the road ahead seem much more clear

The world's messed up and you ask God why
See a beggar beg and you just walk on by
Before you blame the world look at your life
And see the brokenness you try so hard to hide

All the suffering in the world far back in time
Seems as if creation were a crime
But looking closer to reality
You'll see the problem began with humanity.
