We Were Gods (Foster Jen)

Light the stars in your eyes Quiet doubts in your mind Follow me to the place where our colors bled The young, invincible ones Rockets aimed at the sun We never once questioned where we were going They called us all wrong, and they trashed all our songs They dressed us for church, and they threw us in blind We gathered our hands, and we turned towards the wind It was our time We were gods, we were gods We were gods, at least, we thought I will never forget Days we skipped out of class The subtle crash of a kiss still forbidden When time was our time to waste And love was ours to forsake And all our biggest mistakes gave us all our best stories We threw out the map, and we tossed up our caps We swore that we'd break every brick in that wall But it took all our breath when we found that they'd set us up to fall We were gods, we were gods We were gods, at least, we thought….. Before we were lawyers And homeless self-employers Before we crash-landed Into the sky... We were gods, we were gods
