I was flexible, I mean everybody

gotta have faith in something

For me? For me all I had left

was love

And I was getting pretty sure that,

I wasn't gonna love a man again

So I was gonna do it

And the only reason I did it

was a five dollar bill

I knew I probably given some

asshole a blowjob for it

So really tried to piss me off that

if I killed myself without spending it

Basically I sucked

him off for free

So I made a deal

I said God, I gotta spend

this 5 bucks

But when it's gone

so am I

If you've got something for me

in this life, you better bring it on

And there she was

Just some friends my parents

and I are staying with

You wanna take a shower

or anything?

Goodnight

- Goodnight

I can't believe you

are here

Me neither

Can I touch your face?

Sure

Honey!

God Donna!

Donna sorry, just a sec!

I'm sorry, I'm supposed

to be ready for church

Hey, where's my shirt?

Look at this, it's 5 o'clock in

the morning and she ain't dressed yet

I'm sorry about that

No, it's alright

Hey thanks for letting me crash

No, that was nice

So when are you leaving?

Tuesday

But you know, I'm gonna be hanging out

at the Moon Night, around 5

About 2 blocks up

- Yeah yeah yeah

Maybe I'll swing by

Alright

You have fun at church,

alright

Who was that person?

She's just a friend I made

Honey, I think she was a

straight person

Did you check your stuff,

because she might have stole something

No... I checked it, she didn't

take anything

Listen, honey, you cannot bring people

like that here, what if Charles had seen her?

I'm sorry

A person like that... no Ma'am

We have no business with

people like that

I'm just getting some stuff

You'll give it to me when you get it

Want some sandwich?

Ham don't do it for me

- Thanks, man

I'll buy it if you want
