For What It’s Worth LYRICS
In my defence all my
intentions were good         
And heaven knows a place
somewhere for the misunderstood
You know I'd give you blood
If it'd be enough         

Devil's on my doorstep since
The day I was born         
It's hard to find a sunset in
the eye of a storm
But I'm a dreamer by design
and I know in time we'll put this behind         

* For what it's worth I'm sorry
For the hurt I'll be the first to say
"I made my own mistakes"            
For what it's worth I know
It's just a word and words betray
Sometimes we lose our way          
For what it's worth                        

Behind the lens is a poison
picture you paint         
And let's not pretend you were ever
searching for saints
Cause I've been crucified
for just being alive         

Somewhere in the crossfire of
this whispering war         
Seems that I've forgot
just what I was fighting for
But underneath my skin
there's a fire within Still burning
( REPEAT * )
The first bird to fly
gets all the arrows         
Let's leave the past behind
with all our sorrows         
I'll build a bridge between
us and I'll swallow my pride         
( REPEAT * )
