Overdrive Orchestra – Parallel lyrics

Well I tried my hardest and I put on my best shoes
And walked right away from you
‘Cause I can’t stand to look in your eyes
And see myself staring right back at me
‘Cause no one knows the shit that I’ve gone through
To get to where I am right now
Yeah where I am right now

Yet I know that you feel the same
So call out my name
Call out my name

Well I drove a thousand miles just to make my way back here
And I’ve got nothing to show for it
I passed the bigots and the boys who claim they’re men
But they don’t even know the half of it
‘Cause they don’t know the shit that we’ve been through
Hell and back again, we lived to tell the tale
Of all our innocence left standing in the shadows
When we leave our skins

And I know that they feel the same
So call out our names
And they know we are both the same
So let’s make a name for ourselves

Lay down our guard
Bypass comfort
Bold and vulnerable
Like our own prophet

And we know we are all the same
So let’s make a name for ourselves
And you know you are just the same
So call out your name
