    I'VE TRIED TO BE UNDERSTANDING
    I'VE TRIED TO BE A FRIEND
    I'VE TRIED TO PUT MYSELF WHERE YOU ARE
    BUT I END UP BACK WHERE I BEGAN

    I'M TRYING TO PICTURE YOUR ANGUISH
    I'M TRYING NOT TO JOY IN YOUR PAIN
    I'M TRYING TO SPEAK TO YOUR BROKEN SPIRIT
    BUT I KEEP RUNNING TO THE REAL ME AGAIN

    I AM LIVING RIGHT NOW FOR THIS MOMENT
    I CAN NO LONGER LET IT PASS ME BY
    I KEEP WANTING TO HELP UPLIFT YOU
    WITHOUT HAVING TO REQUEST AN ALIBI

    YOU SAY MY WORDS ARE EMPTY
    AND WHAT I SAY DON'T MEAN A "HILL OF BEANS"
    YET YOU KEEP CALLING ME BACK TO YOUR LIFE
    THEN YOU PUSH ME OUT ONCE AGAIN

    I CAN'T BE TO YOU SOME MADE UP STORY BOOK FIGURE
    I'M NOT GOING TO BE YOUR MOM
    I'M NOT GOING TO BABY SIT YOUR FEELINGS AND
    I'M DEFINTELY NOT GOING TO WATCH YOU BATTLE MINE

    YOU ARE FILLED WITH SO MUCH POTENTIAL, YET YOU DONT BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
    MY FAITH IN YOU ALONE IS NOT ENOUGH TO KEEP YOU SAFE
    I'VE PRAYED FOR YOU TO RELEASE YOURSELF FROM THE ADDICTION THAT YOU'VE DECIDED TO CLAIM
    NOW IT'S UP TO YOU MY BROTHER TO "CALL UPON HIS NAME"
