This goes out to you and you and you
You know who you are

When glory days turn to stormy nights
You must have been so petrified 
Didn't you, didn't you feel so cold
You against the world in a losing fight (a losing fight)
 Captive of your demons inside

So you sought an enemy 
(I'm not your enemy)
Like times before to mock ignorantly (he lives in you, you know it's true)
(But the Lord said love, love your enemy so just)
Take heed to the word it's time
 Check Proverbs 19:29
Don't cry

I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

I truly wanted solidarity  Still wearing my blinders back then
(So much I didn't see)
I weep for what I dreamed we all could be
I'll keep you in prayer 'till the end

 Still bruised, still walk on eggshells 
Same frightened child, hide to protect myself
(Can't believe I still need to protect myself from you)
But you can't manipulate me like before  Examine first John chapter four verse four

And I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

Be strong in the Lord and power of His might 

If my shows of gratitude are minuscule  Inside your mind, sorry 
(I'm so sorry, please forgive me)
(There's only so much I can do) I love you and did all that I could 

 Maybe when you're cursing me
You don't feel so incomplete 
But we've all made mistakes 
Felt the guilt and self-hate

I know you've been there for me plenty  Maybe still got love for me
But let him without sin cast the first stone brethren 
But who remains standing then
Not you not I see Philippians 4:9
(Put it into practice)

So I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

(He who the Son sets free is free indeed)
No weapon formed against me shall prosper
 Surely God is my salvation 
I will trust and not be afraid 
The Lord, the Lord is my salvation 
I will trust in Him
Yes, I know that I know that I know that I know

But I have had God's help to this very day
And so I stand here and testify 
To small and great alike
So the more you curse me
The more you're blessing me
The Word said it
Love your enemies 

Do good to those who curse you
Pray for those who mistreat you
 Psalms 129:2
They have greatly oppressed me from my youth 
But they have not gained victory over me

I wish you well

(He that keeps his mind state on the Lord
He will keep them in perfect peace)
