Grace Potter Look What We’ve Become

They told you to keep your head down

They told you not to run

They told you “we’re sorry, you’re not the fortunate one”

They told me to keep it quiet

Said my day would never come

So I screamed my lungs out and I ran straight for the sun

And they always told us we would be nothing

Look what we’ve done (look what we’ve done), hey

And they always told us we would be nothing

But look what we’ve become (look what we’ve become)

And they told you you don’t understand

They told you, “let it go”

And then they took you by the hand

And led you out the door

Your words don’t make a sound

My dreams are on the floor

But you’re rising up from underground

And I’m nothing like I was before

And they always told us we would be nothing

But look what we’ve done (look what we’ve done), hey

And they always told us we would be nothing

Now look what we’ve become (look what we’ve become)

They say it’s over now

The world is over you

They told me “no regrets”

There’s nothing you can do

But I won’t fade to black

On the walk that will be damned

I’ll wear my heart like a flag and run

Straight for the sun

Always told us we would be nothing

And they always told us we would be nothing

Told us “keep your heads down”

They told us not to run

They told us “we’re sorry, you’re not the chosen ones”

They told us to keep it quiet

And said our day would never come

So we screamed our bloody lungs out and ran straight for the sun

And they always told us we would be nothing

And look what we’ve done (look what we’ve done), hey

And they always told us we would be nothing

But look what we’ve become (look what we’ve become)

Uh, uh

Look what we’ve become
