She was daddys lil girl, the apple of his eye,
she went to private school and had silver spoons her whole life
i was a problem and i hit blunts; moving every 6 months
a bad public school kid that lived rough
when momma cried about our first day and curse the day
and said the thought of us together put her in the grave
i've been in love, i could feel it in the worst of ways
her father went five years without a word to say
the whole time we was struggling with no cheese
hustlin hard to make the ends meet with no cheese
believe me, i literally gave every ounce i had
and made her smile everyday while dad was acting mad
i promised her forever so i was there no matter what
she means the whole world to me i could never give her up
i asked her dad to understand the things i'm speakin of.
he looked me in my face and said "I don't believe in love"
what am i supposed to think about that?
and what the hell am i supposed to say back?
it threw me for a loop but then i understood it clearly
if youve never been in love, its impossible to feel me
Forbidden love, Forbidden Love, Forbidden love
(because she's bringing out the best of me)
Forbidden love, Forbidden love, forbidden love
because it aint nobodys ?history?
forbidden love is what they call when they look at us
no matter what i do its never gonna be good enough
youd understand if you could only see what i can see
just let it go and let us be who we supposed to be
you cant help who you fall in love with, thats so true
i been searching for years and i finally found you
now that i have these people say it aint right
maybe cuz youre too young, maybe cuz im too white
im just being honest i love this girl so much,
but i know her family hates me when im gone on tour for four months
and her friends are like "hes probably out cheating on you"
and my friends are like "she might not be the one dude"
but ive got to be myself and do what feels right
why does anybody even care when this is my life?
so im gonna do it, when will they learn?
this is my heart that loves and this is my heart that burns
so fuck people telling me, looking at it sideways.
ive made my decision, and im gonna do it my way
got feelings for this girl, feelin higher than any drug
still to the rest of the world its looking like forbidden love
