  • Please help me God, I feel so alone
    I'm just a kid, I can't take it on my own
    I've cried so many tears, yeah, writing this song
    Trying to fit in. Where do I belong?
    I wake up every day, don't wanna leave my home
    My mamma's askin' me why I'm always alone
    Too scared to say, too scared to holler
    I'm walking to school with sweat around my collar
    I'm just a kid, I don't want no stress
    My nerves are bad, my life's a mess
    The names you call me, they hurt real bad
    I want to tell my Mom
    She's havin' trouble with my Dad
    I feel so trapped, there's nowhere to turn
    Come to school
    Don't wanna fight I wanna learn
    So please mister Bully
    Tell me what I've done
    You know I have no Dad
    I'm livin' with my Mom

    'Cause I'm hopeful, yes, I am
    Hopeful for today
    Take this music and use it
    Let it take you away
    And be hopeful, hopeful
    And He'll make a way
    I know it ain't easy but that's okay
    Just be hopeful

    Why do you trip at the colour of my skin
    And whether I'm fat or whether I'm thin
    You call me loser, you call me a fool
    I ain't got a choice, I gotta go to school
    I wish I had an angel to stick by my side
    I'm shaking with fear, I'm so scared inside
    Doesn't really matter if I ain't got the looks
    Why do you always hurt me and destroy my books?

    'Cause I'm hopeful, yes, I am
    Hopeful for today
    Take this music and use it
    Let it take you away
    And be hopeful, hopeful
    And He'll make a way
    I know it ain't easy but that's okay
    Just be hopeful

    I give you all my money every single day
    I didn't ask to be born but now I have to pay
    I ain't got no food, you take all I have
    When I give it to you, you search through my bags
    I wrote this song for you to see
    We could've been friends, yeah you and me
    Mister bully, take a moment please
    Every single day you bring me to my knees

    'Cause I'm hopeful, yes, I am
    Hopeful for today
    Take this music and use it
    Let it take you away
    And be hopeful, hopeful
    And He'll make a way
    I know it ain't easy but that's okay

    'Cause I'm hopeful, yes I am,
    Hopeful for today (Hopeful for today)
    Take this music and use it (Bars and Melody!)
    Let it take you away (Take you away)
    And be hopeful, hopeful (Yeah)
    And he'll make a way
    I know it ain't easy but that's okay
    Just be hopeful

    What I wear is all I have
    We lost our home, I'm livin' from a bag
    Yo mister bully, help me please
    I'm flesh and blood, accept me please Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
