I could speak all day on how I have faith Yet Truth is, I don’t have faith I would like to believe I trust myself Yet I barely put an ounce of love on that shelf I don’t have faith that the right person will come and take my love Because I am scared I am scared that if I gave into anyone That if I even trusted my love with you That it’s just going to hurt that much worse when I let you go I’ll have that much less faith in myself the next time I even try to love I’m scared that you’ll say all these nice words to me And possibly mean them But I won’t trust myself And blow the only chance I had at loving you I’m scared that if you saw who I really am you’d leave And want nothing to do with me And in all honesty I really couldn’t blame you Yet I could blame myself. I could have faith that all my friends right now are loyal That they would never talk about me behind my back I could trust them with anything I wouldn’t even be ashamed Yet I have been played And most of yall just sit there and smile in my face It’s like getting on a plane ride And trusting in the pilot to fly me safely But then the rumors come like birds flying into the engine Then down goes the plane Because there is the same flock of birds flying back my way Why won’t they just stay in their cage? Don’t any of you realize You’ve made me this way Do it again lie to my face you’ll be another bird ruining my plane The true friends are the pilots Trying to guide me out of the bird’s way Yet instead they get brought down with me My real ones don’t deserve this I’m the one who need to take the blame I have a couple of parachutes Hopefully they’ll escape while they can I’ll stay though because the day this plane finally crashes I hope those little birds will finally realize their damage So much for flying this plane to heaven I could have faith in myself But I am not going to lie to you because I need you to have faith in me I have been hurt The kind where you stay up at night Wondering what you did to deserve this What is your purpose Do I even belong here Does anyone see my tears I loved and I trusted And that just got me here Questioning everything Everyone I know I am hard of hearing But it seems like I’m not the only one who can’t hear Or do you choose not to listen? These are the same people I’m supposed to have trust in? Have love for Tell them everything every little sore If you could see my heart You’d ask What’s that little clump on the floor? Where’s yalls heart at I don’t see them anymore All I hear is she’s this or he’s that All this makes me mad Why can’t we just love each other Is that so bad? Is it so bad to accept each other No matter gay, straight, bi, or trans No matter the color of skin Not matter what music they listen to Or if they fit in with a trend Can’t we all realize Everyone needs a friend Everyone needs to spend Just a little more time seeing who I am Who you are Who he is Who she is Who we all are Because that is what we need To be able to have faith in each other.
