have you ever?

have you ever lived my life?
spent one minute in my shoes?
if you haven't then tell me why
you judge me as you do.

have you woken up in the morning
wondering if this was your last day on earth?
have you ever left your house unsure if you'd return

have you ever seen your friend get shot outside his favorite store?
have you ever seen a friend die from a drug he never used before?

have you ever seen your mom get beat up by your stepdad messed up on booze?
have you ever had an unwanted pregancy forcing you to choose?

have you ever sat beneath the stars
hoping god will hear?
have you ever seen your friend dive away after way too many beers?

hav you ever considered suicide as the only way out?
have you ever tried to hide yourself behind the things you say?

have you ever wanted to protecet
your friends and everyone insight?
have you ever felt such pain that you cried yourself sleep at night?

have you ever lived my life
spent one minute in my shoes?
if you have't then tell me why
you judge me as you do.
