Shackles on my Feet
 

The burning in your eyes before you cry

The guilt you feel after so many tries. 

The hole in your heart after they’re gone 

The scars on your skin; this battle is on 

 

But I walk down the street

Even with these shackles on my feet

I still got this heartbeat.

Just gotta tell myself to breathe

Yeah, I walk down the street 

Even with these shackles on my feet

I still got this heartbeat

Just gotta tell myself to breathe

 

The cracks in your soul when you’re awake 

The fear that’s real and a future opaque 

 

The light in the dark to guide you home

A warm embrace; no, you’re not alone 

 

So I walk down the street

Even with these shackles on my feet

I still got this heartbeat

Just gotta tell myself to breathe

Yeah, I walk down the street

Even with these shackles on my feet

I still got this heartbeat

Just gotta tell myself to breathe

 

So I walk down the street

Even with these shackles on my feet

I still got this heartbeat

Just gotta tell myself to breathe

Yeah i walk down the street

Even with these shackles on my feet

I still got this heartbeat

Just gotta tell myself to breathe
