I believe in abstinence,
but I don't believe in lies.
We shouldn't tell our kids
that if you wait till marriage, you're fine.
We should tell them the horror stories -
how a pregnancy can change your life
We should tell them about STDs
and how sex can become a vice
Leaving the education to parents
seems like it would do
But sometimes the parents
can't even get their child in the room
I may be for abstinence,
but I'm not for ignorance.
The most important moment of your days
could be the day you give it up.
Why let us think
that sex isn't corrupt?
Sex was made to be of love
and now it's changed
Sex is just fun
and we've only got us to blame
Hollywood glorifies the idea
that sex is a beautiful thing -
it is, don't get me wrong,
but it can be something that stings.
For many, the physical attachment isn't enough
For many, emotions come into play
and when your heart and your mind are in with your body
you think it's meant to be that way
but if it's all one-sided
you're bound to get hurt
Sex isn't just physical,
it isn't just getting up a girl's skirt
I am for abstinence,
I think you should wait.
but I'm not for ignorance;
and it surely isn't too late.
