lyrics

Thoughts broken down, Out of the unknown
Memories found, And you are my bloodstone
Healing now, I can’t believe the time

The train rode through
We ran through the cars, the sky an amber hue
We hardly stopped to look at the view
Now I can't believe the time

And I don't need no money to buy new shoes
Cause "Babe," you said, "These shoes look good on you."
Though these boots are thin and old and worn
These old shoes will get me through the storm

So lay it down, Don't want no more mystery
Take off your crown, But please keep your dignity
We're not bound by the baggage that we own

So would you let me in?
I know we're all equally made of sin
And none of us really feel right in our skin
So trust me when I say

That I don't need no money to buy new shoes
Cause "Babe," you said, "These shoes look good on you."
Though these boots are thin and old and worn
These old shoes will get me through the storm

Though I don't know where these shoes will take me
I'll pick up my feet, running on the cold hard concrete
Though these boots are thin and old and worn
These old shoes will get me through the storm
