all the same lyrics – tenth avenue north

all the same

a thousand voices
a thousand lives
a thousand prayers rise in the night
what is it we seek?
so many stories
lord, i hear
and all these questions in my ear
can we come out clean?

different faces
different fears
different failures lead us here
show us how
we’re all the same
desperate for a change
we’re all the same
we need your love
we need your love

we take our secrets
to the grave
spend our lives out in the shame
afraid to show our needs
but as we run our hands
along these scars
may they tell us who we are
we are the redeemed

different faces
different fears
different failures lead us here
show us how
we’re all the same
all desperate for a change
we’re all the same
we need your love
we’re all the same
with hands held out for grace
we’re all the same
we need your love
we need your love
we need your love

so if we’re casting stones
if we’ve forgotten what we know
that we don’t walk alone in this life
let your love
get inside our bones
lay it deep within us, grow
may we bring in the ones left outside

’cause we’re all the same
all desperate for a change
we’re all the same
we need your love
we’re all the same
with hands held out for grace
we’re all the same
we need your love
we need your love

i need your love
