Letters To The President Lyrics - Hawk Nelson

Review The Song (61)



When we were younger we used to sit on my porch
And talk smack about girls and professional sports
There's a lot of things I wanted to say
But never got a chance to find a way

(One) take a good look at all of your high schools
this is the first reason that I want to write you
it must be tough when society is messed up
Gotta save money, please don't take it out on us

Do they even know? Do they even know?

If I was brave I'd write a letter to the president
And have him pass it to the leaders of our parliament
But for now I won't say nothing
From all the kids who would stand in my residence
Who see this letter as a statement of our innocence
But for now I won't say nothing

Now that we're older a brand new story unfolds
sponsored links
About God and the laws that we've always been told
And there's a lot of things I wanted to say
But never got a chance to find a way

Same-sex marriage in a state where they don't care
Murder is wrong but the jail time's not fair
Not to mention date rape, felony and car theft
Break it down and tell me what we've got left

Do they even know? Do they even know?

If I was brave I'd write a letter to the president
And have him pass it to the leaders of our parliament
But for now I won't say nothing
From all the kids who would stand in my residence
Who see this letter as a statement of our innocence
As for now I'll start with something

Take a good look at Tommy, he's a track star
Good role model, had a chance to go real far
Then the school made a budget-cut
Cut out the track team
Now instead Tommy is a crack head

Same-sex marriage in a state where they don't care
Murder is wrong but the jail time's not fair
Not to mention date rape, felony, and car theft
Break it down and tell me what we've got left

If I was brave I'd write a letter to the president
And have him pass it to the leaders of our parliament
But for now I won't say nothing
From all the kids who would stand in my residence
Who see this letter as a statement of our innocence
As for now I'll start with something

Okay people... | Reviewer: Rachel | 8/7/11

I'm gonna bring a bit of science into this in just a moment, but first... Do you believe God made each one of us perfectly? That He doesn't make mistakes? And that He also made our brains (not talking about what we think or decide, just the physical brain itself)? If you said 'yes' to any of those, you can't argue anymore! Science has proved that the brains of those in the LGBT community ARE different in structure than the brains of straight people. Also, Jesus told us to love. Did Jesus tell us to hate others if they weren't straight? No? I didn't think so! So stop the hate, stop the bullying, stop the name-calling, stop the threats, stop the torments, stop the suicides. Start the love, start the comforting, start the healing, start the friendship, start the apologies, start to let them live. Please, that's all this world needs in order to be what it should be.

wow u r really popular aren't u! lol well as I acknowledge and respect your opinion & beliefs in the matter ((as should everybody else)) I also think ur passion is makin these people rowdy (which is really fun sumtimes buht could do alot o damage) so I ask u this: if ur Church decides to agree to the terms of same-sex marriage.... what will u do? leave that Church? go to a different one? I understand how & why people see it as wrong/disgusting/& a sin. buht you also hav to understand ((though u may not agree)) that everyone has their own choice whether it be "wrong" or "right". & as for condoning, I agree that silence usually means acceptance however you must also use that cliche over used saying WWJD cuz to be honest, dont u remember. He drinks & breaks bread, INVITES sinners to the table. whether it be wrong or right only He knows & only He can judge not us. we just live the life we are meant to live & help out when we are able to. we don't judge we trust in the Lord to right the wrong doings & protect us from the evil. I believe God is everywhere & in every1. so Ninja28 read the Bible. Pray to God. talk to the Angels. write draw sing dance. & don't worry about judging what u deem right & wrong. although many vigilantes may argue. it's not our fight. He knows what He's doing. I believe in him. I know He is here for us.



Stop the hating... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/11/11

This nonsense arguing on here is sickening. If you really want to change people's opinions I KNOW for certain that hate-filled arguing (both sides) isn't going to work. I also know that some spammy lyrics website is a pretty awful place to even have an intelligent debate. That being said, I realize the irony in this post. I only hope that someone checks out Andrew Marin's website because I post this



This song is great... | Reviewer: nikki | 2/17/11

so why are you people hating on it? I thought e lived in a free country where it is legal to voice your opinion. I find this song refreshing, knowing that some teens and twenties still have faith and common sense.

I am a devout Catholic, and I love all people. Jesus hung out with prostitutes! He loved them, so I find loving those people following God's example. I can have my faith AND love sinners like family, that's what's great about being a Christian. BUT, I know they are sinning and will probably not go to heaven immeadiately. All we can do is live the commandment Jesus taught, "To love your neighbor as yourself."



Please answer my question. | Reviewer: Mackenzie | 9/15/10

I'll be honest. I'm a 14 year old kid, and my social studies teacher lets kids bring in songs about American politics on Fridays for extra credit. To be honest, I can't tell if "same sex marriage in a state where they don't care means that these guys are in favor of gay marriage or against. Do these guys like gay marriage or hate it?



HIYA NINJA28! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/31/10

Hi, asshole. XD I'm gonna ask you to be attracted to the next man you see. You don't have to do anything or act on it at all! I just want you to CHOOSE to be attracted to him momentarily. Because sexuality is a CHOICE, right? Because if I wanted to, I could randomly decide to make out with another woman and like it because I can *choose* to be gay! Yeah! Thanks for that lovely insight. :p This is gonna make directing pornos so, so, SO much easier for me. Oh, and if I EVER have problems dating men, it's SO good to know that I can just switch to the same goddamn gender. Don't can it till you try it, because apparently, everyone can try it! XD

Have a nice day, you homophobic douchebag.

Ohright, the song. I normally don't mind Hawk Nelson's music, but I personally don't really like that song because of that gay marriage line. The rest of the lyrics are a very good message though. :D




Really? | Reviewer: Kody | 4/12/10

Why is everyone fighting here? Sin is sin guys, no need to debate about it. Just see it and turn and run before you are tempted by it, just like Joseph. You guys are going a little extreme on all this. Yes, I'm a hardcore believer and in college for that, but what is faith and knowledge without love? useless....read Corinthians....also you don't get forgiven only if you ask, your forgiven because He was forsaken. To think you are a key part in your forgiveness is pretty high on a pulpit don't you think? You ask forgiveness for only one reason, to show you regonize you messed up. God forgives you as long as you've accepted.....I'm done, peace.



I AGREE COMPLETLY:) | Reviewer: me:) | 12/7/09

i love this song! ever line is amazing and true. God nvr wanted us to have gay marriages AT ALL. its wrong and yah, evn tho its sez in the bible that all sins are the same in Gods eyes you only get forgivness IF (and only IF) you ask for his forgivness. u dont just automatically get it.



Ok guys grow up | Reviewer: Jenny | 11/25/09

This is only to all the people who thinks same-sex marrige is wrong. Doesn't anyone else think that God might have wanted you to look at a person that way? I mean, me personally have looked at someone "wrongly" but maybe God put that person in my life to show me that it's ok. That's what I believe. And I just ignore it, but even if I had chosen that route, my church wouldn't turn against me. And about the bible verse, is a same-sex marriage worse than adultry or lying? Come on, how do people know if God frowns upon it or not?
