Who Listens

Come on guys were ready to go now
The old me is gone yes he is dead now
So come with me were going to give a eulogy
Its saying goodbye to the boy I used to be
Ya that’s right a real man don’t act like that
Makes you think you’re cool but that’s just a load of crack
A real man don’t brag a real man don’t cheat
A real man don’t live on his back but on his feet
I am doing this for me not for any of you
Because I don’t care if you judge me on the things I do
It don’t matter its not your call
In the end its god who judges us all
Yes I believe in god up above
He is floating around like a little dove
Some people don’t need a push but a shove
Shove In the right direction of how to make your life right
Got to work by day and on through the night
I live my own way with some guidance from above
The mormon way is to forget and to love
So lets forget about who I was and love who I will be
Yes I am mormon don’t say I’m not its not your call don’t judge me
Theres nothing wrong in the religion I believe
I know its right nothing you say could make me leave
I got to church weekly not monthly or annually
Christmas is not when you go even if you pray daily
So don’t say you’re better because I know you’re not
I have been through hell and back lessons are all I got
Growing up aint easy and I have done it alone
Father don’t love me or at least not shown
But that’s for another time this ones about me
This is saying bye to who I was
