Dear Eve Feat. Jennifer Chung Lyrics

Dear Eve Feat. Jennifer Chung

Here lies, resting in peace, how can it be?
Matter fact she was nineteen, far from her peak
Eve, loved to cook every recipe would get her hooked
And she would cherish everything except the way she looked
She was fed lies, she said that big eyes, would change her whole life
And get the right guy
But still she would cry, proving that her heart was wounded
Consuming any confidence while she was still a student
And still she tried to smile the pain away and keep it hidden
Gripping on for dear life, Christ I’m just barely living
Until the pressure kept on building and it toppled over
She was on a building eyes closed stepping forward

darling i know, its hard to see
when they got you crying down on your knees
but i hear you, i feel you, you’re not alone
believe you’re more than that

She wrote, Dear journal I’m hurting and I feel the pressure
I got a lecture from aunt esther about looking better
And my mom she sort of sat there and just paid attention
Listening the whole time nodding without interjecting
I mean I kind of figured, I guess I’m not attractive
I mean my figure could be thinner so I try to practice
But I am so hungry, I just feel so ugly
And if they do judge me, I know that God loves me
I’m ready now, so put me under anesthesia
If I’m breathing I am hoping this will give me freedom
I’m only fifteen and hoping for a new me
I wish I was free, sincerely signed Eve

darling i know, its hard to see
when they got you crying down on your knees
but i hear you, i feel you, you’re not alone
believe you’re more than that

They try to break, to compensate for what they lack in their own faith
so when i say, it isn’t too late its not a lie there’s no debate
don’t need to stay in a broken place
you got what it takes look inside your heart, your happiness awaits

Dear Eve, Im bout to tell you something that will shape the future
You’re a queen you’re a princess but not a loser
Your eyes are beautiful your smile is contagious
And You’re really good at baking even now I can taste it
And there are real men, admittedly not much
And if they want lust I promise that is not love
If you could just live and strive for your full potential
Lives will be touched I can promise you’ll be something special
Beautys all around us, take a while to breathe it
Let it live inside you and throughout time you’ll see it
I’m telling you the secret only God can love you more
There is only one of you so its time to let it soar

darling i know, its hard to see
when they got you crying down on your knees
but i hear you, i feel you, you’re not alone
believe you’re more than that
