lyrics

I'm in a church but the only god I see is marble.
The words fade away into my daydreams. Yeah, that's normal.
My father holds a songbook up to me signaling to read.
You know I'd love to share but it's never felt just right to me.

Maybe I'd feel just different if the music we sang had a beat.
I've never wanted to clap my hands most people don't even want to sing,
or maybe it's just that everyone in the room looks the same as me.
A lot of hairspray and expensive gowns, suit and tie, and I won't open my mouth about it.
My ex told me her church had real people, real stories.
Wasn't a fashion show but healing people and showing glory,
and if I went there would my faith be strong and would my thoughts be holy?
All I know is that I want this mass to be over 'cause he doesn't know me.

Why can't I see?
Is there something wrong with me?
Let my faith be stronger.
My faith ain't strong now.
Hard for me to believe
when I'm without your company.
Let my faith be stronger
My faith ain't strong now.

It seems that everyone around me can just see it clearly.
All my teachers, even Chance, Ben, and all my family.
And all my enemies, they can't recite a word from the gospels.
They worship Jordans, Apple, followers, but not a Bible
I worship my music, but I've never felt like it's enough.
I see my idols doing what they love in the name of God.
I'll never forget my cousins telling me that they like to go to church.
My old self didn't understand the building had its worth,
but now my body will enter but my soul feels just locked outside.
It spends the mass wondering what went wrong with arms open wide.
I'm looking the priest eye to eye.
I want him to just to me why
that I can stare at him, but my creator's hiding in the sky.


Why can't I see?
Is there something wrong with me?
Let my faith be stronger.
My faith ain't strong now.
It's hard for me to believe
when I'm without your company.
Let my faith be stronger
My faith ain't strong now.

I just want to by happy
when I'm in your house with family.
Let my faith be stronger.
My faith ain't strong now.
Something that they hide?
that makes me feel so left behind?
Let my faith be stronger.
My faith ain't strong now.

Why can't I see?
Something wrong with me.
Let my faith be stronger.
My faith ain't strong now
for me to believe
when I'm without your company.
Let my faith be stronger.
My faith ain't strong now.
