lyrics

I was taken in by a family that needed me
Just as much as I needed them in the end
I can honestly say that they truly treated me
Like I was a friend, not a friend of a friend

And they told me
To live guilt-free
And they told me
That all the wind
You're gonna get
Is determined
When you take your last breath

They live on a street that's surrounded by greenery
They live in a house that's surrounded with friends
They live by a lake that's surrounded by scenery
Then they took me in, and surrounded me with them

And they told me
To live guilt-free
And they told me
That all the wind
You're gonna get
Is determined
When you take your last -

It came time
To draw lines, and I
Never had a steady hand

The Sun is like a magnet that pulls up the plants and trees
They all get a turn, 'cause the world knows to spin
My old family told me that fun's like that Sun to me...
Once you've had your turn, then you give it a rest

But my new family
Told me to live guilt-free
And they told me
That all the wind
You're gonna get
All the wind
You're gonna get

All the wind
You're gonna get
Is determined
When you take your last breath
