Ben rector - Peace

I used to want people to love me, so I learned how to sing
Then I thought I wanted money, so I could buy nice things
When I found it was as empty as could be
And now I'm staring at my face above a bathroom sink

Saying I want peace, it's where I am now
It's the only thing I haven't found, somehow
There are other places, there are a million pretty faces
But I want peace, it's where I am now

I used to worry about the future, but the future never came
Tried livin' in the past, but never did quite feel the same
I used to think that there was a place I would rather be
'Til I got there enough times to realize that you are only ever here


That's when I found peace with where I am now
It's the only place I'll ever be, I've found (yeah)
There are other places, filled with a million pretty faces
But I've found peace with where I am now

Through the ups and downs, I have figured out
You find peace where you make it
Scenery won't change it
And I wasted so much time, thinkin' I could ever find
Enough of anything
That would bring me peace

So I found peace with who I am now
It's the only me I'll ever be, I've found (yeah)
There are other places, there are a million other faces
But I found peace with who I am now
