Lyrics: “Hey, Hey, Hey” – Michael Barrow and The Tourists

Let it out You’re the one that taught me Words are living things You feel it now Your heart’s a wild creature But time has clipped its wings Break the walls This prison is a place of your design Watch it fall Lift your voice and listen The wind will bring you mine A shout […]
