This could be for lazy
The way he filled my life with nothing
Skipping all my homework
Sleeping my days away

Or it could be for hungry
Feeding me a bunch of junk
That I obsessed over
And he took my life down with him

But it’s not lazy
Or hungry
That’s taken my life
And turned it upside down

It could be you
Who makes me feel alive
And keeps me working to try my hardest
And achieve my goals
Because it’s you who brings out the best in me
It’s you.
