I’ve grown from the past
So every time I look into the glass
I see myself, funny how when I need
Help I’ve got none but myself.
Love my girl to the point where I’d risk my health
But it’s ok – I never stood a chance
Dance with the devil and I never should’ve danced.
16 year old black boy with braces
Who won’t ever be defined by these racists
How could you hate me for being me?
14 years old I saw myself with no future
So I decided to stop acting and take my mask off.
Time passed on and I realised all the fake people
Around still had their masks on.
I struggled to speak my mind, but
I wanted us to start getting along.
I wanted God to break me from these chains
And crush all these devilish bonds
But I’m not James.
Imagine a beautiful girl who could take you to hell
Just for lusting after her.
I call that a Jezebel but you should know me well
I don’t plan on it but
I already know I’ve taken my L.
