"You and I" as written by Mariah Carey and Walter N. Afanasieff....
This goes out to you and you and you
You know who you are

When glory days turn to stormy nights
You must have been so petrified
Didn't you, didn't you feel so cold
You against the world in a losing fight (a losing fight)
Captive of your demons inside

So you sought an enemy
(I'm not your enemy)
Like times before to mock ignorantly (he lives in you, you know it's true)
(But the Lord said love, love your enemy so just)
Take heed to the word it's time
Check Proverbs 19:29
Don't cry

I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

I truly wanted solidarity
Still wearing my blinders back then
(So much I didn't see)
I weep for what I dreamed we all could be
I'll keep you in prayer 'till the end

Still bruised, still walk on eggshells
Same frightened child, hide to protect myself
(Can't believe I still need to protect myself from you)
But you can't manipulate me like before
Examine first John chapter four verse four

And I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

Be strong in the Lord and power of His might

If my shows of gratitude are minuscule
Inside your mind, sorry
(I'm so sorry, please forgive me)
(There's only so much I can do) I love you and did all that I could

Maybe when you're cursing me
You don't feel so incomplete
But we've all made mistakes
Felt the guilt and self-hate

I know you've been there for me plenty
Maybe still got love for me
But let him without sin cast the first stone brethren
But who remains standing then
Not you not I see Philippians 4:9
(Put it into practice)

So I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well

(He who the Son sets free is free indeed)
No weapon formed against me shall prosper
Surely God is my salvation
I will trust and not be afraid
The Lord, the Lord is my salvation
I will trust in Him
Yes, I know that I know that I know that I know

But I have had God's help to this very day
And so I stand here and testify
To small and great alike
So the more you curse me
The more you're blessing me
The Word said it
Love your enemies

Do good to those who curse you
Pray for those who mistreat you
Psalms 129:2
They have greatly oppressed me from my youth
But they have not gained victory over me

I wish you well

(He that keeps his mind state on the Lord
He will keep them in perfect peace)
