lyrics

WHERE WE COME FROM
Morgan Ward / Caleb Johnson / Mary Gauthier / Amy Speace

Where she comes from, you can still stand
In miles of green, tobacco land
Her people farmed this soil for years
Kept to themselves, cried secret tears

Where he comes from, there were no trees
Miles of sand, nothing green
Behind his eyes, out of his skin
Forgot who he was, forgot who he’d been

We belong together, we just fit
It don’t make sense but this is it
Hand tied the knot so we won’t run
That’s how it’s done where we come from

Where he comes from, the darkness swells
It’s an awful thing, it’s a living hell
Where she comes from, she knows the rain
The sun goes down, comes out again

We belong together, we just fit
It don’t make sense but this it
Hand tied the knot so we won’t run
That’s how it’s done where we come from

Where she comes from, she’s in control
She always thought she’d be alone
And he comes from a lullaby
Where children sleep and children cry

We belong together, we just fit
It don’t make sense but this it
Hand tied the knot so we won’t run
That’s how it’s done where we come from
