10. Can I Be Honest?

The Yearbook
by KJ-52


What if I spoke w/ complete honest-ness
What if told you that Iíve broken some promises
I dealt with pride ever since a little kid
Iíve comprised and Iíve doubted like Thomas did
I canít hide though he sees the way I live
Every single time I told every little fib
I canít deny cause heís already knowing this
But to my wife I regret the time that Iíve missed
Iíve been on the road when I really shouldíve been home
Been on the phone and took calls I shouldíve left alone
I shouldnít have done that see I want you to know
I shouldíve been with you then out trying to get dough
I still got issues thatís hard to let go
Still got some bitter situations with a few folks
Still got a temper that I work hard to control
I gotta remember your standard thatís the goal

Can I be honest?
Can I be real?
Would they still just to how I feel?
But if I was honest ?
If I was real?
Would they even care about how I feel?

Iíve wanted to get back at those who tried to doubt me
Iíve wanted to hit back every time they tried to clown me
Iíve said some things about those that tried to down me
Iíve been too hard on some people thatís been around me
Iím a workaholic addicted to the game
Plus sometimes Iíve been addicted to the fame
I look deep inside things that Iím ashamed
Still the little kid conflicted still in pain
Iím so grateful when I think though how you found me
I used to be hateful of everything thatís around me
Iím so thankful of the way that you still surround me
So shameful yet you love me still confounds me
See Iíve put myself first
Iíve gone days sometimes without reading your word
Iíve acted like a huge jerk
Yet you still love me thatís the thing that Iíve learned

Sometimes I dumb down to sell a few records
Didnít do it though just to get a little cheddar
But looking back I couldíve made some of my songs better
Hindsight is 20/20 so Iím like whatever
But I regret some of my broken relationships
No matter how hard Iíve tried to just make em fit
And I donít blame myself and Iím not blaming them
But too many up in my life have just came and went
Iím not perfect I serve a God who is
I serve a God who lives who says that Iím his kid
When I shoot for the mark but I shoot and miss
I serve a God who gives a new start and he forgives
And takes every thing I ever did
Then he throws it in the sea of forgetfulness
See Iím just being honest I hope your getting this
Cuz heís my promise the reason that I live
