We can’t win for losin’
Fightin’ every step of the way
Battles we shouldn’t be choosin’
Prices too high for us to pay

Nobody told me it’s like this out here

Is that what it takes
It takes everything
It costs us all we have
This love

I can hear the voice of my mother
Echoing down through the years
Saying love your sisters and brothers
That’s why we’re all put here

Nobody told me it’s like this out here

Is that what it takes
It takes everything
It costs us all we have
This love

Is that what it takes
It takes everything
It costs us all we have
This love

This love
This love
