lyrics

all that he needs, is a world that believes
that he's not the kind of person i am
all i could see, was a coward raising me
that is not the kind of person i am
or i need to be

its not like, i was any better off
but apparently i was

Shaking all his demons around
doesnt make him appreciate you now
But when it comes to being a man
thats when he hesitates and lets you down

I broke bread with the best of them, best of you.
I guess the best thing wasn't true
I hoped i prayed for the better
but my mother waited for you
through the stamps, moves and life at the bottom
the new you's and all the other problems
we, can't choose if love has its way
but i hated all of you.

Shaking all his demons around
doesnt make him appreciate you now
But when it comes to being a man
thats when he hesitates and lets you down

all on the table now (all on the table now)
i broke bread with the best of you
no one came close to
and i didn't know any better
carried away by someone who always knew
it started with words
and ends with a curse
and if my papa could see me now

Shaking all his demons around
doesnt make him appreciate you now
But when it comes to being a man
thats when he hesitates and lets you down
