To A Forgotten People - Jewel lyrics

I see it's gonna follow me
Everywhere I go.
Come quick, and I'll show you
I've been here before

I don't feel like I'm running away,
But I can't argue my way out of this mess.
A trail of lies,
Broken hearts and broken ties.

In my time here,
Learning lessons everyday.
Now I'm staring at the wall
Who hears what I have to say?
You're my inspiration.
You're my pain.
In time wounds will heal,
But the scar will always stay.

Give me a reason to stay.
Give me a chance, and I won't go away.
Hypocrite words and cries.
You never have the time.
