Have You Ever
Have you ever lived my life?
Spent one minute in my shoe?
If you haven't then tell me why
You judge me as you do.
Have you ever woken up in the morning
Wondering if this is your last day on Earth?
Have you ever left your house
Unsure if you'd return?
Have you ever seen your friend get shot
Outside his favorite store?
Have you ever seen a friend die
From drugs he'd never used before?
Have you ever seen your mom get beat up
By your step dad messed up on booze?
Have you ever had an unwanted pregnancy
Forcing you up choose?
Have you ever sat beneath the stars
Hoping god will hear?
Have u ever seen ur friend drive away
After way too many beers?
Have u ever seen a friend
Experiment with weed?
Have u ever covered up guilt
By doing a good deed?
Have u ever considered suicide
As the only way?
Have u ever tried to hide yourself
Behind the things u say?
Have u ever wanted to protect
Your friend and everyone in sight?
Have u ever felt such pain
That u cried yourself to sleep?
Have u ever lived my life,
Spent one minute in my shoes?
If you haven't, them tell me why
U judge me as u do.
