One of Them

 

Verse One

They’re the people in my family I don’t see at Christmas

They’re the cool kids and hellions I left in my hometown

They never cross my mind till the days I think I miss them

They’re ex-best friends, ex-co-dependents, I don’t know them now

 

Pre-Chorus

We break and mend with age

But one thing stays the same

 

Chorus One

I’m never gonna call you one of them

Yours will always be the face I know I’ll see again

I’m never gonna call you one of them

 

Verse Two

It makes me laugh when they try to break me like I’m glass

I watched them coat my heart in steel with their own bare hands

Everything they tainted, you make innocent again

A shelter for the embers still glistening in the rain

 

Pre-Chorus

We break and mend with age

But one thing stays the same

 

Chorus Two

I’m never gonna call you one of them

Yours will always be the face I know I’ll see again

I’m never gonna call you one of them

I trust in a thousand things I didn’t way back then

 

Bridge

When the fire comes

All’s said and done

Years after they left me

When the sun burns out

I'll hold your hand

The sweetest kind of ending

 

Chorus Three

I’m never gonna call you one of them

Yours will always be the face I know I’ll see again

I’m never gonna call you one of them

When earth and the heavens fall, I’ll be there at the end
