[Chorus]
Dear President, on behalf of the poor
I am writin’ you a letter, hope it hits your front door
If you do happen to read it, I just hope you don’t ignore
You still got money for war but can’t feed the poor
Mr. President, if you open, can you come and sit with us?
At least try to explain why the police keep killin’ us
Or they locked us up in jail and throw the key away
On behalf of the ghetto, see if we okay

[Verse 1]
Dear Mr. President, I hope this missile finds you free
My intention’s not to criticize but be the sight for blind to see
Penitentiaries built up, schools steady tore down
Take the riches from the rich man, envision life poor now
Communities is filled with drugs, corners covered by the thugs
Homeless men live in the streets, no blankets, covers or rugs
Sister’s smokin’ on some dope, aggravated, bein’ broke
To ease the pain, needle came, now they shootin’ just to cope
God hear me if you can, hopefully I can reach this man
Take a couple seconds to read my letter to the President
Mr. President, I don’t wanna cause no trouble
But then again the ghetto is the reason why we hustle
Tell us now, be for real, what’s your beef with Mexico?
You think buildin’ up a wall really send a message though?
Drug prices finna soar, streets gon’ get so messy, bro
Murder rate gon’ rise like gas at Texaco

[Chorus]
Dear President, on behalf of the poor
I am writin’ you a letter, hope it hits your front door
If you do happen to read it, I just hope you don’t ignore
You still got money for war but can’t feed the poor
Mr. President, if you open, can you come and sit with us?
At least try to explain why the police keep killin’ us
Or they locked us up in jail and throw the key away
On behalf of the ghetto, see if we okay

[Verse 2]
Obama gave us hope, he became Martin’s dream
Malcolm gave us strength ’cause we fight by any means
Huey gave us heart, take no shit from all them pigs
Marcus Garvey gave us smarts, to return to where we live
Harriet freed slaves, could freed many more
But they knew not they was slaves, as we know not we are poor
Julie Lynch rolled some paper, gave the masters master plans
Former kings of the motherland, became master’s man
All I’m sayin’, Mr. President, understand we have a reason
Do not trust no more Americans in this country full of treason
Espionage and betrayal, triumph but we fail
Democratic or republican, still donkeys with no tail
Pen us up in jail
Espionage and betrayal, triumph but we fail
Democratic or republican, donkeys with no tail

[Chorus]
Dear President, on behalf of the poor

At least try to explain why the police keep killin’ us

No one has a heven or hell to put me through
But you do
No fate could fill me up or drug could keep me high
Like you do
No one else can understand it all I ever wanted
Was you too
If the world stops caring all that matters to me is
If you do

No one makes me wanna believe in anything
But you do
All I know is I can close my eyes and I can fall right
Into you

Oh I never wanna miss you baby
I hate we have to die one day
I’d hold my breath to die together
As long as forever is with you you

[Verse 1]
Remember that time we were just kickin’
But nothing had changed, nothing was really different
Then love showed its teeth like it’s something vicious
No, no, no, let me finish
Ain’t it something when it all goes tragic
How a spell can get casted onto something magic
What I wouldn’t give to get back to where we had it
Oh, it should’ve lasted

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Now it’s like I lied
When I said I didn’t need you
Alright, if you’d left, I’d never be
Tonight can we just get it right
Somehow, for now

[Chorus]
Freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the older familiar thoughts
Can we just freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the feelings we think we lost
For now

[Verse 2]
Oh, I’m so goddamn mean
‘Cause I, I, I say and I do things
That I shouldn’t sometimes
My mouth gets me in trouble all the time

[Pre-Chorus 2]
But now it’s like I lied
When I said I didn’t need you
I die if you’d left I’d never be
Alright, can we just get it right somehow
For now

[Chorus]
Freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the older familiar thoughts
Can we just freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the feelings we think we lost?
For now
For now
Can we just freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the feelings we think we lost?
For now

[Bridge]
Remember that time we were just kickin’
But nothing had changed, nothing was really different
Then love showed its teeth like it’s something vicious
No, no, no, let me finish
For now

[Chorus]
Freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the older familiar thoughts
Can we just freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the feelings we think we lost? (we lost)
For now
For now
Can we just freeze frame, pause, rewind, stop
And get back to the feelings we think we lost?
For now
For now
Can we just rewind, stop
Get back to the feelings we think we lost?
For now

[Verse 1]
While you were sleeping, I decided to lay it out
Every bad reason
All of my pointless doubts
Where I went wrong
I whispered the ways that I’m ashamed of myself
While you were dreaming, I handed you all my fears
My thoughtless decisions, turned into thoughtful tears
What have I done for the first time
I blame myself

[Chorus]
But you get my love, baby
You get my love
If there’s only one thing about me that you can trust
You get my love, baby
You get my love
Don’t let my mistakes take that away from us
You get my love

[Verse 2]
I’m no longer hiding
Though you’re not awake to leave
I can tell by your breathing
It’s no longer a fantasy
I’m still not prepared
For when you wake up and turn to me

[Chorus]
But you get my love, baby
You get my love
If there’s only one thing about me that you can trust
You get my love, baby
You get my love
Don’t let my mistakes take that away from us
You get my love

[Bridge]
The light comes in
The dawn is rising down
You opened up your eyes
Once again I have to risk it all
The time is now

[Chorus]
But you get my love, baby
You get my love
If there’s only one thing about me that you can trust
You get my love, baby
You get my love
Don’t let my mistakes take that away from us
You get my love, baby
You get my love
If there’s only one thing about me that you can trust
You get my love, baby
You get my love
Don’t let my mistakes take that away from us
You get my love

[Verse 1]
They say everything is temporary
Who the hell are they anyways
I wanna know where does love go to die
Is it some sad empty castle in the sky?
Did we just shoot too high and spoil like wine?

[Chorus 1]
You walked by and it’s like our bodies never touch
No love, you hold me close, but I don’t feel much
I cry, maybe time isn’t on our side
We have a thing but we lost it
One more go, I kinda thought if we took it slow
It might be easier for us, yeah for us to know
I know we never been quite here before
I wish I knew it when we lost it

[Verse 2]
You used to try to wake the beast in me
There’s still a very sleepy part of me inside
I’ve been waiting to come alive
You stared into my eyes and turned to stone
And now I’m living all alone
In these four walls

[Chorus 2]
There’s a stranger, he’s lying in my bed
Kinda blank like the thoughts living in my head
This is the one that I felt I knew so well
I think we had it but we lost it
Still the girl that you chased all around the world
I haven’t changed, just replaced all the chains with pearls
I want the same things we did back then
I know we had it but we lost it

[Bridge]
Oh, the bone breaks
It grows back stronger
Oh, the bone breaks
It grows back stronger
The bone breaks
It grows back stronger
Oh, the bone breaks

[Chorus 3]
You walked by, and it’s like our bodies never touch
No love, you hold me close, but I don’t feel much
I cry, maybe time isn’t on our side
We had a thing but we lost it
One more go, I kinda thought if we took it slow
It might be easier for us, yeah for us to know
I know we never been quite here before
I wish I knew it when we lost it
Yeah, I wish I knew it when we lost it
