Under it all you're not so tough


I walked along the road today
and saw myself in the tired face
and a thousand more look back at me
I could almost feel the unity

And the sun rose high above the trees
and the birds were singing over me
but beneath my feet I felt the sting
that was the earth remembering

Lay down, lay down your weapons boy
Right now, right now you should've changed the world
Under it all, you're not so tough
Everyone, everyone just wants to fall in love

And I used to think we're just the same
from a different town and with different names
Do you remember what we said?
"We'll never change," oh did we forget?

Lay down, lay down your weapons boy
Right now, right now you should've changed the world
Under it all, you're not so tough
Everyone, everyone just wants to fall in love

And I walked along to the edge of town
and there I threw my burdens down
Looking up, at last I found
You're never loved if you protect yourself

Lay down, lay down your weapons boy
Right now, right now
Under it all, you're not so tough
Everyone, everyone just wants to fall, to fall in love

Lay down, lay down your weapons boy
Right now, right now you should've changed the world
Under it all, you're not so tough
Everyone, every one of us, just wants to fall

Lay down, lay down your weapons boy
Lay down, lay down your weapons boy
