Never perfect, never great

I can't hide it, no

I can't conceal this hate

 

I try and try, but it never works

no matter how hard

it only hurts

 

I am ashamed when i look

look into the mirror

to see what I took 

 

Oh the life I wish I had

it would be better

it couldn't be this bad

 

I am blonde, and have green eyes

a muffin top

I can't disguise 

 

It is not the outter

but the inner

that counts

 

So I'll embrace for good

this pain I feel

just like he would

 

He felt the pain

he felt the loss

what was for Him alone to gain

 

He was a Jew 

scoffed at and mocked

and he knew

 

That one day he'd have to die

for the ones that mocked

that He knew why

 

To save the world he said

for those I love

they are being missled 

 

So he lived and glorified

the name of His great father

still he died

 

To live that into eternity

He was not afraid 

to be what He was meant to be

 

And though it ended

twas only begun

for my heart is mended

-because of His son.
