It's funny how
We've wasted our time
On so-called friends
Who are really not on our side
We've always got something to say
About us and how we are
Spending our days
They're trying to confuse us
With their lies and deceit
And they don't care if we
Live or die on these streets
But you and I
We both know the truth
That we will prevail
As long as God sees us through

No matter what they do
You need to love me
I ain't out there cheatin'
All on you, you need to trust me
Wanna see you happy, never blue
You need to love me
And just love me
And just love me
No matter what your friends
Are telling you, you need to love me
'Cause from me
You'll always hear the truth
You need to trust me
I ain't mad at you for being you
You need to love me
'Cause I love you
So just love me

I wish they would
Leave us alone
And let us be together
Boy, you can't fall victim
To those fools
Telling you whatever
You hear about me on the streets
And it'll only make you weak
And put a damper on our situation
They're trying to tear down our
Foundation sick and tired of
Hateration but we gone make it
As long as we stay patient

No matter what they do
You need to love me
I ain't out there cheatin'
On you, you need to trust me
Wanna see you happy, never blue
You need to love me
And just love me
And just love me
No matter what your friends
Are telling you, you need to love me
'Cause from me
You'll always hear the truth
You need to trust me
I ain't mad at you for being you
You need to love me
'Cause I love you
So just love me

Why do we waste away our lives
Playing simple games
Telling silly lies
How far will they go
Till they realize
What goes around comes around
We got a love you can't
Break down

No matter what they do
You need to love me
I ain't out there cheatin'
On you, you need to trust me
Wanna see you happy, never blue
You need to love me
And just love me
And just love me
No matter what your friends
Are telling you, you need to love me
'Cause from me
You'll always hear the truth
You need to trust me
I ain't mad at you for being you
You need to love me
'Cause I love you
So just love me (Repeat)
