Hawk Nelson Letters to the President Lyrics

sponsored links
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

Take a good look at all of our high schools
This is the first reason that I wanna write you
And when we thought when society is messed up
Gotta save money cause they’ll 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
About God and the laws that we’ve always been told
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 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
A role model has 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 were 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 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
As for now I’ll start with something Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
