Feat. Jason Isbell

lyrics

People who are sad, sometimes they wear a frown
And people who are kings, sometimes they wear a crown

But all the people who don't fit
They get the only fun they get
From people puttin' people down
People puttin' people down

People without love, sometimes build a fence around
The garden up above, that makes the whole world go 'round

But all the people who don't fit
They get the only fun they get
From people puttin' people down
People puttin' people down

So cold, sometimes it gets so cold

You may love your wife, you may lose your family
And you may lose your mind, just to keep your sanity

But the people who don't fit
They get the only fun they get
From people puttin' people down
People puttin' people down

People that are glad, sometimes they wear a smile
And people without dreams, they walk the extra mile

But all the people who don't fit
They get the only fun they get
From people puttin' people down
People puttin' people down
People puttin' people down
People puttin' people down

So cold, sometimes it gets so cold
