lyrics

in this body
Pain whispers in my ear through sleepless nights
Still
I will
not
live in fear

I am strong
hear my song
I will rise to soar beyond
these brittle bars of blood and bone

I'm a human just like you
smiling through the blues

will you walk in my shoes

:::::::::::::::::::::::

in this body
my wheels are like my eyes
open wide and moving
seeing where the ocean meets the skies
seeing where the seagull flies

I am strong
hear my song
I will rise to soar beyond
these brittle bars of blood and bone

I'm a human just like you
smiling through the blues

will you walk in my shoes
will you walk in my shoes

:::::::::::::::::::::::

love is freedom
love is a rhyme
love is a bird in the skies
love is a voice unsilenced
love never dies

I am strong
hear my song
I will rise to soar beyond
these brittle bars of blood and bone

I'm a human just like you
smiling through the blues

will you walk in my shoes
will you walk in my shoes
will you walk in my shoes
will you walk in my shoes
