That Real…

my life, real….

yeah….look
i mean this with love
when I say it
i wanna answer the phone
when you call me
the problem is
it’s 10 a.m.
and you’re already drinkin
you’re probably already wasted
what’s the point
in having conversation?
with somebody that
won’t remember
we had conversations
we always talk about the same things
we just say ’em differently
try to fix it
crazy, isn’t it?
you say
“dad was always proud”
and played the videos of us as kids
i get it
i think that both of us
live in the past
so we take for granted
the present
maybe next time I’m in maryland
I’ll come and visit
we ain’t got a lot
in common
but both of us miss him
we could sit inside
your livin room
AND TEAR UP TOGETHER
THAT’S REAL
THAT’S REAL

i might do some things
you don’t like
we all make mistakes
that’s just life
they might say I changed
that’s alright
THAT’S ALRIGHT
that’s just my life
MY LIFE
MY LIFE
you know my patience
is very thin
wish I was there again
im not embarrassed
to say that we’ve always had issues
im embarrassed to say
that we NEVER took care of em
pain will always
find its way to the surface
no matter how DEEP you bury it
growin’ up
i felt like no one ever
REALY GOT ME
eventually
i took that out on relationships
i put my arm around you
and I mean it
I LOVE YOU TO DEATH
these are the moments
i know ima always hold onto
and cherish em’
life’s about taking chances
making moves
not about what you did,
it’s what you DO
build on what you got
LEARN FROM WHAT YOU LOSE
and never let

PEOPLE DISTRACT YOU FROM BEING YOU!

THAT’S REAL. -NF
