Help me through this crazy life
Sympathy is hard to find
Beauty stops, invades the mind

Under the street light
Under the day light

Empathy is hard to miss
We proceed like all's at risk
Holding on to to news-spread lies

I'll leave the street light
Under the day tonight

Give me a reference to know what we're fighting for

We pretend that love's the war
Just to have a story to board
To add and take away, add and take away

Called to face another day

Block the story that tells us lies
That we're not destined to survive
To love again, to love again

To love, yeah

Give me a reference to know what we're fighting for

Won't you give your heart and soul
Heart and soul, what really matters

Give me a reference to know what we're fighting for

I need a reference to know what we’re fighting for
