Mason Jennings - East Of Eden lyrics

I'm just a student of this life, just like my father.
And I am a stranger to this heart, just like my mother.

Oh, and brother you should know,
That this heart's still filled with sadness and regret.
But I'm learning as I go
To forgive the things that I just can't forget.

Sometimes this heart is made of glass
And I often find myself
Living only in the past
Thinking mostly of myself.
But I'll believe you when you say,
That these are things that time can heal.
And this beating in my heart
Says this love we have is real.

And all of these wishes, I once lost, are now returning.
And all of the demons, I have fought, are slowly turning.

Oh, and brother you should know
That there is no one in this world who feels no pain.
But I'm learning as I go
To accept the things that I've no power to change.

All of these streets are heading out
And this old song's no longer blue,
And although nothing's figured out
It looks like we've both made it through.
If there were one thing I could ask,
I would ask you where you've been.
'Cause I still wonder where you were,
When this whole big ship sank in.
