Some People

Feeling lost can have you feeling puzzled.

Sometimes you might get caught up in the struggle

And everybody says that they love you

But who’s there to help you out of trouble?

It can be hard to separate the real from the fake 

When life is going full throttle with no breaks

And it’s something every single day 

It’s about the people who won’t shake

Life has never been easy breezy

People be slick and sleazy

Grimy and greasy

It’ll have your stomach feeling queasy.

You have to stay blind to the nonsense. 

Remember, you can’t see it 

You have to stay prayed up

When you’re fighting your demons

Remember, people come and people go

Some people come around for a season while

others stay around for life

Some people are only here for a short stint

You can’t let everybody get close

Because sometimes it’s hard to tell

Some people don’t mean you well,

they only want to see you fail.
