  • This goes out to you and you and you
    You know who you are

    When glory days turn to stormy nights
    You must have been so petrified
    Didn't you, didn't you feel so cold
    You against the world in a losing fight (a losing fight)
    Captive of your demons inside

    So you sought an enemy
    (I'm not your enemy)
    Like times before to mock ignorantly (he lives in you, you know it's true)
    (But the Lord said love, love your enemy so just)
    Take heed to the word it's time
    Check Proverbs 19:29
    Don't cry

    I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well

    I truly wanted solidarity
    Still wearing my blinders back then
    (So much I didn't see)
    I weep for what I dreamed we all could be
    I'll keep you in prayer 'till the end

    Still bruised, still walk on eggshells
    Same frightened child, hide to protect myself
    (Can't believe I still need to protect myself from you)
    But you can't manipulate me like before
    Examine first John chapter four verse four

    And I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well

    Be strong in the Lord and power of His might

    If my shows of gratitude are minuscule
    Inside your mind, sorry
    (I'm so sorry, please forgive me)
    (There's only so much I can do) I love you and did all that I could

    Maybe when you're cursing me
    You don't feel so incomplete
    But we've all made mistakes
    Felt the guilt and self-hate

    I know you've been there for me plenty
    Maybe still got love for me
    But let him without sin cast the first stone brethren
    But who remains standing then
    Not you not I see Philippians 4:9
    (Put it into practice)

    So I wish you well
    I wish you well
    I wish you well

    (He who the Son sets free is free indeed)
    No weapon formed against me shall prosper
    Surely God is my salvation
    I will trust and not be afraid
    The Lord, the Lord is my salvation
    I will trust in Him
    Yes, I know that I know that I know that I know

    But I have had God's help to this very day
    And so I stand here and testify
    To small and great alike
    So the more you curse me
    The more you're blessing me
    The Word said it
    Love your enemies

    Do good to those who curse you
    Pray for those who mistreat you
    Psalms 129:2
    They have greatly oppressed me from my youth
    But they have not gained victory over me

    I wish you well

    (He that keeps his mind state on the Lord
    He will keep them in perfect peace) Writer/s: JAMES JASON POYSER, MARIAH CAREY, MARY ANN TATUM
