Verse

Hey, we’re those celebrators

We’re those stimulators

We’re those promise keepers

Banging in your speakers

When we roll up in your spot, Trying to lift the spirit, Trying to share what we’ve got.

Let your soul greet us, as the Lord leads us

Pre-chorus

Open your arms like this (yeah)

And put ‘em back together like that (Yeah)

Move your body like this

Show your people you can do it like that

Since you survived let’s show the world that you’re alive

Oh Lord, help us Jesus

Touch the heart of your Believers

Verse

We’re those water walkers

We’re those faith talkers

We are the truth seekers

Banging in your speakers

We’re the first to show up

Ain’t looking at the clock ‘cause we gon’ close the place up

From the start to finish

We gon’ do what it takes

Pre-chorus

Chorus

Ima gon’ cut a step

‘Cause I ain’t through celebrating yet

(Go ‘head x4… God is good!)

Let me show you what I’m doin’

Put your hands together let the soul start moving

(Go ladies x5)

Bridge

Clap your hands for freedom

Clap your hands for love

Clap your hands for justice

Clap your hands for God

Say yeah (yeah)x3

We gotta make the difference

We gotta do it now

Chorus

Bridge

Clap your hands for freedom

Clap for unity

Clap for your contentment

Clap and pray for peace

And say yeah (yeah)x3

We can make the difference

We can make it just you and me

Verse

Looked at the picture, didn’t know my face

I wonder how I got into this place

I can’t explain it ‘cause it makes no sense

So disappointed in my bad choices

Now I’m investing my mentality

By cherishing new opportunities

I take account for every day since then

‘Cause it won’t happen again

And after awhile

Pre-chorus

Sometimes you wake up and

You just stare not moving

You wonder where you are

You can’t explain what happened

You don’t know where the time went

But you know it has moved on

Chorus

Last year

I made

The move

Forward

This year

I lived

I smiled and learned to laugh

So I looked at my hands and they looked new

Looked at my feet and they did too

Verse

Every blue moon I run into a face

That reminds me of a past time and space

And thought I don’t live in that galaxy

(I can’t) Shake the dust that’s settled permanently

A light year seems so very far away (Yet)

A light years distance won’t erase mistakes

And thankfully the force of grace pulled on me

(Now I must) Launch away from Gravity, Uncomfortably

After awhile

Pre-chorus

Chorus

Bridge

Last year I made mistakes

Last year I felt the pain

Last year I made a choice

The choice to follow You

Yeah man I lick my wounds

This year is looking better

This year is looking brighter

I think I’m gonna live

I’m gonna live what’s true

This year I follow You

This year I laugh again

Chorus

Verse

The truth be told, I still am hurt

And my heart’s a little cold, I still got some work

Tell me where it went wrong, How it got personal

So I’m writing this song, Trying to let some hurt go

Chorus

I love you man and

I love you girl so

Please forgive me

So people can see

Love still works

And love is still alive

(Still alive, still alive)

Verse

Got a mama still tryin’ to figure out whose side to choose

And a mama’s still tryin’ to figure out why we had to lose

Something spirit filled that got dry bones to move

Hearts being healed and their minds renewed

But oh well I guess it’s over now

(And I) Can’t let hell start to triumph now

(We disagree but you need to know that I’m still here)

Call me if you need me there’s no grudge

No grudge here

Chorus

Verse

Look at how we walk around each other like

We don’t know each other and

(We don’t know each other and)

Listen to us talk about another like

We don’t love each other man

It’s a shame how a relationship has

Come to this

Who’s to blame is not the question we should be

Asking if

I hold no grudge!

Chorus

Verse

Don’t knock the hustle (Don’t)

I mean a man’s gotta live

A man’s gotta eat to survive (Don’t knock)

And though you may disagree

You must admit a brother has to try

To make the best (Make the best)

Of what I gotta do

To make it through

Don’t knock the hustle (Don’t)

‘Cause I’m struggling, pushing

Tryna make it to the front of the line (uh huh) (Don’t knock)

And while I’m pushing through with yours

I’m tryna get to what’s rightfully mine

Don’t knock it (don’t knock, don’t knock)

All I want is mine (don’t knock, don’t knock)

(They told me)

Don’t be scared in what you do

(Uh huh)

Respect a man, he’ll respect you too

(Uh huh, yeah)

Keep walking tall, conversations short

(Uh huh)

Respect the game or don’t play the sport

(uh huh, yeah)

Chorus

If you’re a man

Don’t knock the hustle

Of a man

Trying to eat

If you’re a man

Don’t knock the hustle

Of a man

Trying to live

Verse

Don’t knock the hustle ya’ll (Don’t)

‘Cause everybody wasn’t born with a

Silver spoon in their mouth (Uh huh) (Don’t knock)

See some of ya’ll don’ jumped bougie

But you know what I’m talking about (Don’t knock, don’t knock)

It was the grace (Don’t knock don’t knock)

Of God

That got you out

And please don’t miss this (No)

‘Cause that don’t mean that God is rolling with the rich

The devil with the poor (No)

‘Cause every man’s got to work

Just some harder so that they can pull

Their own weight (Their own weight)

It’s a heavy load (It’s a heavy load)

And that’s for sure

(They told me)

A fool is lazy, a man is wise

(Uh huh)

While little boys sleep, grown folk while arise

(Uh huh, yeah)

You’re never too old to take advice

(Uh huh)

Humility watches the fall of pride

(Uh huh, yeah)

Chorus

Bridge

To the brothers working hard on that 9 to 5

You keep hustlin’ (Yeah)

And to the brothers on their grind rain sleet or shine

You keep hustlin’ (Yeah)

And to the ones who keep the neighborhoods trimmed and lined

You keep hustlin’ (Yeah)

And to the ones who keep facilities looking fine

You keep hustlin’ (Yeah)

Chorus

Verse

The way the wind blows

I think I will lean

Since I have a choice

There’s no need to lean, No

Eeny, meeny, my, eeny, miny, moe

That’s how my story goes

Any way I feel, I’ll go

(And I)

Know just what it takes

Know just what to do

Even how to be

I just wanna know

What this may be called clinically

Chorus

I just wanna love with a pure heart

(Don’t wanna be in love with the fantasy)

I just need a place with a new start

(Set me free from my insanity)

One foot in (my insanity) one foot out

One foot in (my insanity) one foot out

One foot in (my insanity) one foot out

Verse

People love to say

What they think is wrong with me

They try to medicate

Feels like I’m drowning in unneed

So eeny, meeny, my, eeny, miny, moe

Which way will I go

I thought I knew but now

I’m so confused

This is how my story goes

(And I)

Ooo yeah, I’m tired of the fake

I want something that’s tangible

I’m tired of this pain

In which it seems that

There’s no cure

Chorus

Vamp

And oh, I will choose to love (God)

And oh, I will choose to love (God)

And oh, I will choose to love today

Chorus

I met a man down in Oregon, he made some decent paper

He built a home with his two hands sittin’ on some acres

His wife cooked all their food from scratch

And even warmed their plates

I said boy you’ve really got it good

He said no I’ve got it great

When I asked him how he got up here

(These are some words from Dean)

He said trust your God and love your family

Son, live beneath your means

Live beneath your means

Verse

You know, you never know what to expect when

You run into strangers

But it’s always a pleasant surprise

When you meet someone who can change your life

This here’s a little story about two people who never

Expected to be affected by each others’ lives

‘Cause O one was young and black, the other gray and white

They talked past all formalities, now they’re revealing light

Past all stereotypes, I prayed this time would never end

Let me talk about my friend

Chorus

Bridge

(Live beneath your means)

Learn how to use your money

Don’t spend because you can

And don’t buy a big old fancy truck

If you’re looking for a mini van

And stop trying to live so flashy

Spend the money on your family, yeah

It don’t matter if you got 6 babies or none

You’re a daughter and son

You’ve gotta learn to plan!

Verse

Dean is a photographer and

We truly learned about exposure

And as he talked about his family it

Became very clear to me that we thought alike

And this here’s a little song about two people who never

Expected to be affected by each others’ lives

I asked if we could sing our song, he sat down by his wife

As we began to sing our song, tears formed in his eyes

No more stereotypes, I prayed that time would never end

Let me talk about my friend

Chorus

Bridge

(He said live beneath your means)

Lear how to use your money

Don’t spend because you can

And don’t buy a big ol’ Cadillac

When you’re looking for a mini van

And stop trying to be so flashy

Spend the money on your family, yeah

Doesn’t matter if you got 6 babies or none

You’re a daughter and son

You’ve gotta learn to plan

Verse

These good days won’t pass me by

Now I know we will fly again

These old wings will surf the sky

Oh lead me with Your wind

Pre-chorus

So much more than

More than a fairytale

More than a feeling felt

And it’s even more than

Accumulation of some wealth

The greatest story I could tell

Chorus

And we float

And we float

And we float

And we float

And we float!

Verse

Bad forecasts won’t make me cry

‘Cause I know that I will fly again

My life shape I sacrifice

Just like Christ I will rise again

Pre-chorus

Chorus

Bridge

I need some more momentum

I glide You provide the wind

Father breathe in me again

‘Cause I can’t fly without You

Lord let me fly again

My hope, my future won’t end

In this minor

Turbulence

Verse

Bad forecasts won’t make me cry

‘Cause I know that

I will fly again

My life shape I sacrifice

Just like Christ

I will rise again

So much more than…

Verse

Has come in many packages you’ve seen

Sometimes red as roses, monster green

Sometimes it’s romantic or obscene

Talkin’ ‘bout that fire

FIRE!

Told me I’m standing on holy ground

Got me leading strangers all around

To places never seen that can be found

Talking ‘bout that fire

FIRE!

And we don’t have to worry ‘bout our sight

It leads us through the day, shines bright at night

Just move a little closer and ignite

That fire

FIRE!

Sometimes it burns so it can purify

The very best you have to give in life

So let me bring my best to sacrifice

In that fire

FIRE!

Your supervisor uses this as fear

Not realizing God’s already here

So when we’re in it one more does appear

Talkin’ about that fire

FIRE!

I looked up and now it is my turn

I did not think that it could even burn in me

I did not think that I could even learn

To love this fire

FIRE!

An element you have to understand

It’s hard to love someone without it man

So let me play my part and start to fan

On your fire

FIRE!

Got me thinking maybe I need to learn

Some history and plot on my return

To my community and show them what I’ve learned

Inspire fire

FIRE!

Took our house but not our dignity

Made me prioritize my family

Reminded me I have all that I need

If I got that fire

Vamp

You don’t know just what he’s done for me

You don’t know

You don’t know just what he’s done for me

x3

FIRE!

Verse

You may see me on top of the world

Maybe see me with diamonds and pearls

And all because I’m putting in work

Possibly

I’ve been tempted to say I’ve done well

Handled my biz now I deserve wealth

But when I walked through fire a thousand degrees

It wasn’t me

So lead me through all of my pride

And keep me seeing through Your eyes

Living true to multiply

You

Thank you for these times

I can’t even understand

I am considered the man

Even impressive to my friends

Pre-chorus

It’s amazing to me how it actually

Comes naturally

It’s so unconscious

(Yeah)

‘Cause I’m unconscious

(Yeah)

I’m unconscious

Chorus

Make Your will, my way

My will, Your way

And I will live unconscious

Let my life move by

Your breath inside

And I will live unconscious

Verse

I’m looking at this standing ovation

I hope that You are proud of Your creation

Knowing that the glory is Yours

How ‘bout an encore

To take the credit, You know I don’t dare

It’s Your credit You allow me to share

And when I walked on water I began to sink

You rescued me

So lead me through all of my pride

And keep me seeing through Your eyes

Living true to multiply

You

Thank you for these times

I can’t even understand

I am considered the man

Even impressive to my friends

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

Bridge

I can only live if

You choose

To breathe again

Inside me

Jesus please renew me

And use me again

Chorus

Verse

My orders are for me to live

My life in high def cinematic, That’s my mission

I’m glad that you believe that what you

See comes automatic ‘cause it took desperation

And I’d love to introduce you to the hope

(He can control your panic but it takes) Your intention

Of everything I’m ever gonna do or get or accomplish

(Ever gonna do or get or accomplish)

That’s my mission

Chorus

There’s no secret message

No hidden passage

No gadget getaway car

Just need you right where you are

To be an agent

To be an agent

To be an agent

No weapons, no charms

No tailored suit or

No makeup, no disguise

It’s time to go live

As an agent

As an agent

Of truth

Verse

And don’t be startled if you

Get an act of random kindness, See that’s my people

And you may not get a chance to see our

Facial gratitude it’s kind but we love people

And we’d love to introduce you to our Hope

(The one who shines above us ‘cause we are) a reflection

(Of Him)

Of everything I’m ever gonna do or get or accomplish

(Ever gonna do or get or accomplish) That’s my mission

Chorus x2

Will you dedicate your life for the love of Christ Worldwide?

I Will!

Will you dedicate your life for the love of Christ Worldwide?

I Will!

Chorus

Verse

We’re not here to cause no problems

But we’re here to make you move

‘Cause we’re just here to start the party

For those who are thankful

Don’t sit there and act like you can’t move

Just let the music take over you

You can’t tell me that you are too shy

Gon’ get up grab some one and just try

Chorus

Tap, Side, Turn, Clap

Forward, Step, Spin, Snap

‘Cause we came here to set off the party

If you don’t know you better ask somebody

Verse

Expose your light, it ain’t hard

Show your brothers, how to jam

‘Cause their so hard, they’ve forgotten

Party people like to dance

You can snap your fingers, Swing your hair

Flash a smile real big to show you care

Go ‘head and rock your hips and flip your wrists

Show ‘em how ladies get down like this

Chorus

Bridge

Heaven must feel something just like this

Like that, like this

Like that, like this

Like that, like this

Like that, like this

Heaven must look something just

Like that, like this

Like that, like this

Like that, like this

Like that, like this

Hey, I can’t let this moment get away

Hey, join us when the chorus starts to say

Rock and clap…

Chorus

Verse

Lord please forgive me, I approached you all wrong

Let me stop and take a moment, get where I belong

Expectations got skewed so I stepped into my greed

Now I’m separating things that I want from things I need

The way that I’m breathing

The way that I’m seeing

The way that I’m talking

The way that I’m living Lord

You can

Chorus

(Shape it)

Supernatural

(Shape it)

Systematic

(Shape it)

Providential

(Lord you can shape me)

(Shape it)

(Shape it)

(Shape it )

Verse

Lord I wanna progress but I’m dragging my past

Built a fortress on my property in the flood lands

And so I gathered up the courage for my demolition

And I’m trying not to worry until my work is done

The way that I’m walking

The way that I’m seeing

The way that I’m talking

The way that I’m living

Lord you can

Chorus

Bridge

I see You working on the inside

When nothing else worked before

I see You tweaking on the inside

Got people believing Your word

Even though it kind of

Feels like

The life that I live is unheard

You keep moving on the inside

And You can master peace in my world

Chorus

Verse

Nobody loves You like I do

It sounds crazy but I love the Way

Won’t let nobody out do me

When it comes down to giving praise

I guess it’s just how I feel

‘Cause You actually turn night to day

Nothing can make it without You

I feel honored just to live today

There’s no fancy words to say but

Chorus

Whoa… For Your demonstrated love

Whoa… For everything that’s unmentioned

Whoa… For the guidance by Your grace on Your creation

Whoa… For the world to see the beauty is so clear

Whoa… I’m breathing in Your oxygen

Whoa… I’m taking ownership of my purpose again

Whoa… And every moment that I live is critical

Whoa… So I take it all in and say whoa

Whoa… Whoa

Verse

I can’t believe they miss it

So to me will You please speak again

And I’ll go tell the children

‘Cause I know that they are listening

You speak through the trees with the clouds

Fire, breeze and aloud

And I can hear

I’m amazed and so grateful that love is unconditional

Great power can be so humble

There’s no fancy words to say but

Chorus

Bridge

And I can hear Your voice, telling me that You are there

It’s echoing from every, every corner in the world

Everything’s moving

By Your doing

Through my science

Found reliance in You

WHOA…

Verse

I know You’re coming back one day

But I’m not ready

So I hope you will delay

It sounds kind of selfish

But I have so much to say

To your people

I just wanna help them find The Way

Pre-chorus

But I’ll

I’ll stand alone and wait

While I’m waiting I’ll just keep on singing

Singing to show The Way

To

Chorus

Love (ba da ba ba)

Unconditionally (unconditionally)

Pre Chorus

Bridge

Caught up

Caught up in the blink of an eye

Past the horizons

Past the clouds

Past the blue in the sky

Heaven

It’s finally over

I’m home with you

You keep hoping, living

Anticipating

Ba da ba ba ba ba, ba da ba ba ba ba da
