I Never Left Them Behind


This was last year
Thanksgiving came...
Hard times
Those circumstances didn't change
No cash no gas
Speeding...
Switching lanes!
Making sure my friends had food
Even in the rain
Backstabbed me...
So it hasn't been the same
Telling other people I'm the reason for the different ways
That's a lie...
People see what they want to
I never crossed a soul!
Hate and jealousy poked through
Listened to the lies
But avoid what they know is true
Widely criticized...
By I don't even know who!
I'm finished
I tried to lend a hand but they resented it
Making me into an evil person when I'm innocent!
Looking for a problem...
No respect because they ended this!
Blaming it on me and I could see envy was imminent
Please!
Now please could you give me a break?
Knowing anytime you called me
I'd fix you a plate...
How insensitive could yall be?
Remember this face?
Same person you would call things
Winning his race and chasing dreams...
Close friends are considered my family
So I can't stay true to a person who's stabbed me
If I don't trust you...
I won't keep you around me
And you can lie to them
But I can see what you're 'bout G!
So you can do your thing
Pursue your mission without me
I don't need the fake love and help
I never crossed a soul and I never ever left...
I wish I would've known how those people really felt
Then I would've gone long ago and watched my steps
And if you keep those lies up and claim you follow God
Eventually...
He'll rise up and start to getting tired
And brother I rebuke you and curse your evil mind
Any wicked minded scheme that you plot on me will die
I promise

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
