JILL SCOTT lyrics : "My Petition"

You say you mean good for me
But you don't do it
You say you have a plan but you just don't go thru with it

You say you know the way to go
And I should follow
But all of your empty promises

Leave me hollow

And oh

How do I trust you
How do I love you
When you

Lie to me repeatedly
And oh
How do I have faith, in you

When you just don't come thru
Like you say you could


Oh, say can you see [2x]

You say that I'm wrong for

Stating my opinion to you
You say that I'm wrong and there'll be quiet consequences too
But I know my rights babe

There'll be no law abridging
The freedom of my speech
Or the right for me to petition for a remedy of grievances


And I want to trust you
I want to love yeah

But you lie to me repeatedly
And oh I want to have faith in you
But you just don't come thru

Like you said you could
Oh say can you see
Hmmm


I want fresh fruit, clean water,
Air that I don't see

I want the feeling of being safe on my streets
I want my children to be smarter than me
I want, I want to feel

I want to feel, I want to feel free
For real ya'll
I'm just telling you so you know

I want to, I want to have faith in you
I really do but you keep lying to me
It hurts

I believe, I believe you owe it me
Give it to me like you said you would
Hmmm

Oh say can you see
Hmmm
Oh say can you see

Oohh say can you see
Hmmm
By the dawn's early light
