Mayday Parade - One Of Us Lyrics




I just gotta tell you one last thing
How the angels make their way home
I saw it carved into a headstone
That came to me so suddenly
Right there
And this temporary body we call home
You get the most if you don't look back
You get the most if you save it up

You want fire, I've got fire, girl
And things that seem impossible until you get to know me

You're one of us, here's exactly what you'll need to make it through
Good times and hard times
We're here to fight for you
March along
Don't forget to tell the ones you love they matter
When you break the bend
Fall off again
You'll find your love where it's always been

You've gotta fight the beast inside
And all the while enjoy the ride
You've gotta keep an open mind
And willingness to change
Well God knows I've changed
I talk like I'm wounded now
I walk like I don't know how
Maybe I could re-teach myself
One foot in front of the other one

You're one of us, here's exactly what you'll need to make it through
Good times and hard times
We're here to fight for you
March along
Don't forget to tell the ones you love they matter
When you break the bend
Fall off again
You'll find your love where it's always been

[x2]
I will carry my heart back home now
This place doesn't hold any secrets anymore
Feels like I didn't fight
Didn't give it all I could and now it's gone

You're one of us, here's exactly what you'll need to make it through
Good times and hard times
We're here to fight for you
March along
Don't forget to tell the ones you love they matter
When you break the bend
Fall off again
You'll find your love where it's always been

  36. Peyton Riley

    I've listened to this band since I was 11. I'm almost 17 now and I never thought I would be seeing them in concert in 3 days. I will cry, I know I will. This band means so much to me. And the bands they are touring with.. Real friends (my babies omfg) and this wild life (currently wearing their crewneck), and as it is. I'm so freaking excited. I'm so thankful for them for being in my life, it would've been tough without them.

  41. GwenLuvs D

    Honestly only like 2-3 songs in this album. Dont know if its got to do w/ Jason leaving and all but my most favorite songs were with him singing. These songs are just sorta... meh. Sorry to all you hardcore MP fans out there but hope these songs help you out with whatever youre dealing with. <3

    Aaron Wade

    its ok :) I love this band but theres only like 2 songs I dont like too much. look" up and see" and hollow. I like the instrumental but its hard to imagine derek asking someone to behead someone else cx

  42. Jade Emily Sperry

    they took way too long to release a new album

  43. Lauren Sargent

    Every. Single. Song. Every. single. Song. Every album. Every song. They never ever ever disappoint me.

  44. Jess Kowalski

    a bit like ghost and oh well oh well x

  45. Cyd Ramirez

    classic mayday parade sound

  46. punkchick07

    One of my favorite songs from the new album. The lyrics just hits home. Love the line "don't forget to tell the ones you love they matter" <3

  47. Emma Cowling

    "I just gotta tell you one last thing-how the angels make their way home- I saw it carves into a headstone."

    "When you break the bed, fall off again."

    The two most important lines to me. Idk why the first one, I just like it, but the second is just.... It has meaning that no normal human can fathom.

  48. Armor of God

    touched..

  49. Armor of God

    touched..
