Misunderstood - feat. Brijitte West

from by Cody Melville



Dirty Rock n’ Roll dreams
Above the clouds they ride
I get on my bike and go
The gravel is broken ground
I don’t see nothin’ kind for you in the sun
I get why you feel under attack and gotta’ run

I don’t feel lonely, but I feel misunderstood
It’s not you only I feel the weight of it too
I know, I know, I’m not trying to be some kind of victim
I don’t care what you believe, the truth is yet unwritten

Everybody was kind when we were all lost in the snow
I thought for awhile I had me a place to go
Hey get on your way, the day is almost here
Hey just listen to that New England tide disappear


In the trees the cottonwood
Ah they do the best they can
The great birds choke on the battle time and time again
I’d rather take it and soar gloriously
You’re a sinking boat without a paddle
It’s no place for me
