Suddenly I begin to fall Down, alone, hard against my face And I feel so numb Everything is falling apart in my hands It seems everything is breaking down I had the greatest month of my life And it was December I had given up all of my life In that December Here it comes, a tidal wave of all I am for you, spilling across the shore And it takes me down Who am I to tell you how I feel? I like when I can feel as if I'm all alone I'm having the greatest month of my life I feel December I'm giving up every piece of my life It is December Oh my God, everything surrounding me is a mess Why does all this happen to me? I feel so lost All the time I try to work things out in my head But then I never can believe myself To make things better I've had the greatest month of my life And it was December I gave everything I had in my life In that December I hate everything about my life When I'm in December I'm having the greatest month of my life It is December

Justin know what this about Palm trees, oceans, fresh air, that can break your heart Stop tryna be God Stop tryna be God That's not who you are Stop tryna be God That's just not your job Stop tryna be God Ride for him every night Visions of the angel white Comin' down to shine the light In the manger, what a sight All three Wisemen rollin' tight Bringin' gifts to send their praise on high Jesus never worked a 9-to-5 Cursed a tree, it withered overnight Stop tryna be God Almighty Fuck you, Judas, never leave your people behind It's never love no matter what you try 'Cause they did not create commandments When you pray, don't have to make it fancy 'Cause God is far from what you can be And only He controls the ending Stop tryna be God Stop tryna be God That's not who you are Stop tryna be God That's just not your job Stop tryna be God Stop tryna be God Almighty Always say your prayers at night Turned Himself to bread and wine He died at 33 but lived a perfect life If I love Him, I'mma praise Him right First rule of God: there's only one on high You can't win a war without him on your side So never turn your back, all right 'Cause they did not create commandments When you pray, don't have to make it fancy 'Cause God is far from what you can be And only He controls the ending You won't succeed tryna burn Him Crosses or tombs don't concern Him Stay out His way 'cause you don't wanna hurt Him You say you love Him but always desert Him Stop tryna be God Stop tryna be God That's not who you are Stop tryna be God That's just not your job Stop tryna be God And it was in Jerusalem where Jesus was so killed For who was he to castigate the Lord or go against his will? And on that day in Golgotha he was hung upon the cross, oh, no But from the tomb where he was cast Upon the third day he came back Well, He will always be a step ahead of it for me Well, He will always be a step ahead of it for me
