Lyrics

Why do bad things have to happen to good people
Why do bad things have to happen to good people

She said "hi my name's Amy"
Amy welcome to our group
Listen thanks for real
I really didn't want to come
It took that extra push from my mom to get me here
Anyways you know my reason is the same
Its hard to talk about and explain the day that I was, um
You know, raped
Go ahead Amy, we're listening we understand
You understand?

You can't unless you've ever had a man
Shove his hands down your pants with no consent snuff you in
the face and leave you there bleeding then he flees the scene
Nobody seen what took place and you're left there scared straight,
dazed, staring at the ceiling with these sinister faces pasted in
your memory can't even muster up the strength to somebody help me

This feeling of loss of control cause they stole the one thing they
know I hold close and defend and I
live as though my life hasn't changed
And I pretend but this never-ending
question is just spinning in my head

{Hook 2: 2x}
Why do bad things have to happen to good people?
I wish I could believe humanity wasn't so see through
Why do bad things have to happen to good people?
I wish I could believe humanity wasn't so see through

She said hi it's me Amy, remember me?
Listen I want to say I'm sorry for my outburst last week
But I think I'm ready now to share my story with the group
But please understand this wasn't due to anything i pulled

I was dealing with this instance
Haunted with this fear clear I wasn't believing this
And I wasn't allowing tears
Insecurities are they staring at me as I pass through school?

Can't stand the odor of a chlorinated pool cause that's when it all
flashes back & I retract to that night
after practice, pulling off my swimming cap

When that backpack just smashed me in my face and as I tried to catch
myself, but all I could see in the place were bright lights in my
eyes blinding me from the surprise
from five guys from my Algebra class
This all happened so fast
Why should I try to even cry, to even pray?
I wish that I could end my life cause I don't want to live today

{Hook 2: 2x}
Why do bad things have to happen to good people?
I wish I could believe humanity wasn't so see-through

Why do bad things have to happen to good people?
I wish I could believe humanity wasn't so see-through

She said listen, I want to let you know that I'm doing fine
Its just I've had things on my mind and I've been
waiting for the right timing that question dancing in my mind

I've found an answer and its freeing me
I'm breaking loose; no longer bound
You know the question about good people having bad things happen?
Didn't understand your reply the first time that I asked
it; but now I see the answer, it's as simple as the question

Its that God disperses blessings but man remains man
With a free will to fill their lives and
stand in God's plan or to take circumstances
Mold them in their own hands and deliberately hurt another person
For the purpose of perverted self-service
Making victims feel worthless;
but I'm not cause I'm responding to
the Son And once again I'm having fun
No more hesitation, now I'm praising Him
For His love with no conditions
And listening with patience He entered in my heart
Today I made that invitation

{Hook 3: 2x}
Why do bad things have to happen to good people?
I wish I could believe humanity wasn't so see-through
Why do bad things have to happen to good people?
I wish I could believe humanity wasn't so see-through
