Written by Eric Eckhart and Finn Eckhart Okamura (age 2)

lyrics

When I was a girl
When I was a babe inside the womb
I only knew what love was
I only knew the truth

When I was a girl
When I was a baby just like you
I always knew what love was
I always knew the truth
Sing

The pain is gone
The pain
Like a shotgun barring down all around

When I was a boy
When I hid away inside my room
I never knew what love was
I never knew the truth

When I was a boy
When the shyness kept me from my youth
Along the closet wall I carved my love for you
Sing

The hate is gone
The hate
Had me crushed and kept me bound to this town
The hate is gone
The hate
Like a shotgun barring down all around
We were born to find true love
Heaven knows I would have died for you

When I was a man
When the loving arms of death took me
That's when I knew who I was
That's when my heart broke free

The pain is gone
The pain
Had me crushed and kept me bound to this town
The hate is gone
The hate
Like a shotgun barring down all around
We were born to find true love
Heaven knows I would have died for you
We were born to find true love
Heaven knows I would have died for you
