lyrics

You’d like to think I walk only on red carpets or water
I’m the first to admit I’m not perfect, not your answer

‘cause we both know, we both know the paths we walk are parallel

It’s better when we’re side by side (we both know, we both know)
freed minds and hearts aligned (we can grow, we can grow)
like starlings soaring in the sky
you and I, you and I can take this world in stride
side by side

Came crashing in my life like a meteorite at high speed
Nothing I expected, yet you’re everything I now need

but we both know, we both know we’re better treading on our own

It’s better when we’re side by side (we both know, we both know)
freed minds and hearts aligned (we can grow, we can grow)
like starlings soaring in the sky
you and I, you and I can take this world in stride
side by side

the strings move alone but quiver with the same song
the headlights glow on the yellow lines down the road
shoulder to shoulder, we march forward

we both know we can’t grow in each other’s shadow

It’s better when we’re side by side (we both know, we both know)
freed minds and hearts aligned (we can grow, we can grow)
like starlings soaring in the sky
you and I, you and I can take this world in stride
side by side
