Verse

Feel like I might relax tonight

Chill at the pad, catch the fight

Invite some friends ‘cause I want some company

(Just don’t wanna be lonely)

Nobody’s home, what should I do?

Sit on my chair, turn on the tube

Nothings on but sex and violence, In all this silence

Got me thinking, what would it be like?

One more night, back to my old life?

What did it bring? Nothing but trial

So I sit back, and read my bible

 

Chorus

 

Growing up in the Word, Growing up in the Word

Hush the devil ‘cause we’re moving to another level

4x

 

Verse

Now who could be calling so late at night?

Trying to sleep, that ain’t right

Who could it be, disturbing my resting?

I don’t know, so Ima stop guessing

Pick up the phone sweet sound it sings

So I wonder, is this a dream?

I hear a voice, call my name

“When can I see you again? Been so long since last we met, Ooo yeah”

Back of my mind still trying to forget about the things in my past

Only what you do for Christ will last

Need to have a special meeting, Sit on down

Do some thinking at the church, you can join me

Sunday morning so we can feast, all in the Word

 

Chorus

 

 

 

Verse

I can remember when I was back in the days

All my ways

Having fun but still from the lord I strayed, leaving faith

And hope behind me

Nobody could find me

That’s ‘cause I lost my mind, see

I was roamin’ lost in a strange land

Fellas say can I hang? Hmm…I think I can

Hanging at the parties, staying out all night

I reached the pad and now it’s time to fight

I’m staying up late, fussing with my girl

Thought that I was under covers but she found all the numbers

I know I messed this up, to how I’ve been living

I tried the world, now my life to the Lord I’m givin’

I want no more of this worldly pain, I wanna live right

Because to live for Christ is gain, I’m growing up

Yeah…

 

Chorus

 

Chorus

Lonely

With all these heavy burdens down on me

Even when I’m hangin’ with my homies

The feeling still tries to overcome me

Oh my

Fruit I’m feeling lonely

With all these heavy burdens down on me

Even when I’m hangin’ with my homies

The feeling still tries to overcome me

Oh my

 

Verse

Another day’s here, you feel the same

You look around, ain’t nothing changed

You ask the Lord if He’s with you

But Satan tries to deceive you

My friend keep your head up

I know this world… it keeps you fed up

But that’s alright, stay in the fight

Even though

 

Chorus

You know I’m feeling kinda…

With all these heavy burdens down…

Even when I’m hanging with my…

Still tries to overcome…

Fruit Im feeling lonely

With all these heavy laden burdens on me

Even when I’m hangin’ with my homies

The feeling still tries to overcome me

Oh my

 

Verse

Look around your shoulder

Another day’s coming soon

Things are still here

Wait ‘til noon

The morning’s still here

The early light

Tomorrow it will be alright

Just chill and you’ll see

Everything’s gonna be kosher

And I’ll bet ya folks, you’re…

It’s gonna be alright, in the morning time

 

Chorus

Lonely

Even when I’m hanging with my homies

The feeling still tries to overcome me

All these heavy laden burdens on me

Oh my

Yo Fruit I’m lonely

Even when I’m hanging with my homies

The feeling still tries to overcome me

Overcome me

Yo Fruit I’m feeling lonely

With all these heavy burdens down on me

Even when I’m hanging with my homies

The feeling still tries to overcome me

Fruit I’m feeling lonely

With all these heavy laden on me

Even when I’m hanging with my homies

The feeling still tries to overcome me

 

Traveled the long road, which way to go?

But now you know that you’re never alone!

Verse

Everybody wants some more

Everybody wants a big score

Everybody’s looking for an easy fix, yeah

Everybody knocks on that door

But I don’t wanna play the game

(I don’t wanna play the game)

So tell me am I going insane

‘Cause nobody likes to die

Nobody likes to cry

Why don’t they give You a try?

Chorus

I lose myself in what nots and the whats I need

And I find myself in You

The whats I have I want no more

‘Cause what I need is all found in You

It’s found in You

All found in you

Whoa

Found in You

 

Verse

I don’t wanna stand in the rain

(I don’t wanna stand in the rain)

I don’t wanna get drenched again

I need the sun in me to clear the clouds away

(Clear the clouds away)

I need some joy to ease my pain

I’m happy with the car I drive

I found a purpose to survive

I’m happy with my cons and pros

Content with how my hair grows

I just need Your love to stay alive

 

Chorus

 

I lose myself in what nots

Yeah, yeah, yeah x3

 

I lose myself in what nots

Then find myself in You!

Verse

See I keep jacking up

Not moving walking forward but

Backing up

Doing the same things again

Not things of God

But things of sin

I know I have the power to overcome this

Sometimes it seems I just can’t win

Need to slap my own face

For taking advantage of God’s grace

Defeated is how I feel

Time needed to take a moment and chill

Look at how I got myself in this place again

And how it leads to sin

Am I walking with the mind of Christ

Or connected with the mind of ends?

Do I plan to remain upright, or just blend with friends

The struggle never ends

 

Chorus

I’ve fallen and I can’t get up (gotta get up, gotta get up)

In a pothole, I am stuck (gotta get up, gotta get up)

On my knees and cannot pray (gotta get up, gotta get up)

Been set free still stuck in my ways (gotta get up, gotta get up)

Keep movin’

 

Verse

What shall we say then,

To continue in sin?

That Grace may abound

God forbid

Shall we that are dead to sin live (live)

Any longer therein?

Know ye not

That so many of us are baptized in Jesus Christ

Like Jesus Christ

Raised up by the father in the glory so we could walk in the newness of light

For the good that I would, I do not

Trying not to do wrong, but this I do see

Now if I do that, I would not, this no more I

But the sin in me

Another law with my members facing my mind

Bringing me in captivity

I thank God through Jesus Christ, who can set me free

 

Chorus

 

If any of y’all folks be in Christ

Old things are passed away

Let Him renew you

I fell, in love x2

 

Chorus

Now that I fell in love with Christ

It’s so much easier to live

I’ll do it x2

Verse

I’ve been saved for so long

But singing that same ol’ song

Claiming I can’t let go of the past

Carrying my burdens and

Always hurting

Never thought living for Jesus could be the same

But I opened my eyes

And I recognized

That style of my life

Was not in line with Christ

Oh but when I fell

 

Chorus

 

I fell, in love x2

 

Verse

Jesus asked me why

He can’t stop by, draw nigh

All I could say was that

I don’t have the time

But from the start

I didn’t give my whole heart

That’s why I fell away

That’s why I couldn’t stay

But I opened my eyes

Had to recognize

Where my problems lie

Christ was not first

Now that I fell

 

Chorus

 

I fell, in love x2

 

Me and my God’s got a good thing

We got a good thing going on!

Verse

She said…

“If I could be on the outside looking in, I wouldn’t be my own friend”

I hear her friends telling her she don’t have to cry no more, I said take it to the lord

If you only had the faith in God that you have in me, maybe you could believe

That God can make you happy

Only he can do it

If I could be the one, who could save your soul

(Surely I’d do it)

If I could be the man, who could make you whole

Oh yes I would but see we’ve tried to go this road again, and again and it lead to sin

I can’t go that way no more

Lord I give it over

 

Chorus

Turn it over

Giving him all of your hurt

Turn it over

To the Lord

Turn it over

Giving him all of your pain

Turn it over

To the Lord

 

Verse

I know we’ve got our son, and Ima be the best man I can be

And father can be

I’ll always be the best friend you need

I’ve been there for you, you’ve been there for me

But the pain of this consequence you see it hurts real bad

And it makes me sad

And it makes me mad

Hey dry your eyes

But Jesus’ yoke, it’s easy, and his burden is light

If I could be the one, who could save your soul

If I could be the man, who could make you whole

See my soul is weary

And my spirit is weak

Oh Lord it’s you I seek

Please direct my feet from trouble

 

Chorus

Verse

If you don’ told ‘em

That you ain’t going that way

If you don’ told them girls

That you aint getting’ freaky

If you don’ told your boys

That you ain’t looking for no cheap thrill

And you don told them hard heads

Your lips ain’t smoking on no kill

 

Chorus

I think you better leave

If they’re bringin’ you down

Gotta bounce the messin’ around

You gotta hold up, back back

Slow down, relax and

Leave

If they’re bringin’ you down, gotta

Bounce

The messin’ around

You gotta hold up, back back

Slow down, relax and

 

Verse

If you don’ told ‘em

That you ain’t up for playing games

And you don’ told ‘em

Don’t call you by nothing less than your name

And you don’ told ‘em

(You don told ‘em)

You don’ told ‘em

Though they claim that they have not heard

You don’ told ‘em that the only thing that’s for you to be spread is God word

 

Chorus

 

 

Bridge

I don’ broke free from those crabs in a bucket

Don’t care what you say about me and I love it

(Hey, ho, hey, ho) x2

This nut ain’t fell too far from the tree

I can be anything mama said I can be

(Hey, ho, hey, ho) x2

 

Aaaah, break free!

(Break free from the crabs on me)

Break, free, break free!

 

Chorus

Verse

Ooo you’re really something special

These brothers better recognize

If loving God means that you’re wrong

Then you don’t want to be right

‘Cause when I see you with your friends girl

At your school or at your job

I can’t help but admire

‘Cause your shining like a star!

 

Chorus

‘Cause you ain’t looking for no man to come around and affirm you

And ain’t no Adam or Zeke gonna just come around and get to know you

Even when the lights go down, He’s on her mind (Oh yeah)

Early when the sun rises up, He’s on her mind (oh yeah)

And I can tell when I talk to her, He’s on her mind

Church girl

Church girl

 

Verse

Ooo, ‘cause you don’t have to be shake shakin’ it in a mini skirt

Tryna flirt, Yeah

And you don’t have to be fake faking it for no man

So you can feel your worth

You told me that God’s your man

And if He can’t do it no one else can and I’m digging that

 

Chorus

 

Got a fine sense of humor

Carries herself with class

Church girl don’t stop

‘Cause what you have’s gon’ last

 

Vamp

‘Cause you can have the diamonds and pearls

‘Cause I wouldn’t trade the world for my church girls!

Hide the word, in your heart

Hide the word in your heart!

Verse

I want some company

Just don’t wanna be lonely

In all this silence

Got me thinking, what would it be like?

One more night

Back to my old life?

What did it bring? Nothing but trial

So I sit back

And read my bible

 

Chorus

Fell on my face, once or twice

Too many times to fall

So I must hide the word

In my heart

Fell on my face, once or twice

Too many times to fall

So I must hide the word

In my heart

Chorus

 

Hide the word x4

 

 

Vamp

Fell on my face

Fell on my face

Fell on my face

Once or twice

Too many times too fall

Verse

Taught me how to love my wife

Not for a day but for my life

You taught me how to love those fools

Who despitefully use and abuse my cool

You taught me how to love the ones

That try to take advantage of the fact

That I’m saved

But they can’t and they’re mad

‘Cause they crave what I got

But guess what you can have it

All you gotta do is grab it

 

Chorus

You taught me how to walk, in love

You taught me how to speak in love

Taught me how to be in disagreement but love

You taught me how to be, in love

You taught me how to walk, in love

You taught me how to speak in love

Taught me how to be in disagreement but love

You taught me how to be, in love

 

Verse

You taught me how to be a man

One who understands what a man’s supposed to be

You taught me just how to play

All the moves that say I’m not down with OPP

Taught me how to close my eyes and to recognize

What’s best for my soul

When my flesh wants to roll

To her house and disrobe

And what’s next is some sex that connects, oh no

 

Chorus

Verse

She’s everything I knew she’d be

(Soon as I signed up, He lined up)

The perfect one for me

It’s so amazing when I see her, get near her

We go together like a song and melody

So many times late at night, we kneel and recite this special prayer

(That we might keep it tight)

Knowing that all along, we can’t go wrong

Long as our hands are in his hands, we know it’s right

 

Chorus

She’s my Christian queen

She’s all I need, my everything

Day or night, on my mind

Spend a lifetime

Making her smile

She’s my Christian queen

All that and more, girl I adore

Mi amor, I’m so sure I love you

 

Verse

From the first time she caught my eye

It’s like an angel fell from the sky

She loves the Lord like I do (hey)

A perfect smile and personality too

She don’t have to worry ‘bout me leavin’, decievin’

I know with her is where I’m supposed to be

That kind of love she can believe in, believe in

I tell you that’s what she’s getting from me

 

Chorus x2

 

Bridge

Rubies and diamonds can’t compare

(My queen yeah, yeah, yeah)

I give her my all even when I’m not there

(My queen yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh there’s nothing she can’t do

(My queen yeah, yeah, yeah)

My Christian queen, I love you

She’s my Christian queen!

 

Chorus

Verse

I was left alone with a man

And He wrestled with me until the break of the day

And when he seen that he couldn’t prevail

He touched my leg and it hurt real bad and he said

“Let me go” before the day breaketh but I said

That I will not let go until you bless me

Change my name

 

Chorus

‘Cause I can’t stop

Won’t stop

Lord you know I won’t let go

Until you bless me

By You, for You

I wanna be blessed by You, for You

I wanna be blessed by You, for You

I wanna be blessed by You, for You

 

Verse

I waited patiently for the Lord and He inclined unto me and he heard my cry

He brought me out of the horrible pit

Out of the miry clay

And He set my feet upon a rock

Established my going

Put a new song in my mouth

Men shall see and fear

And trust in the Lord

Blessed is a man who maketh the Lord his trust

 

Chorus

 

Vamp

Create in me a clean heart

Renew in me a right spirit

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven

Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted

Create in me a clean heart

Renew in me a right spirit

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled

Create in me a clean heart

Renew in me a right spirit

Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy

Blessed are the pure at heart: for they shall see God

Create in me a clean heart

Renew in me a right spirit

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God

Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake:

For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven

Create in me a clean heart

Renew in me a right spirit

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you,

And shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My sake

Chorus

And we just dance, dance, dance

And you can too

Just keep your eyes on me

Enjoy the fruit of my feet

And we just dance, dance, dance

And you can too

Just keep your eyes on me and join the fruit of my feet

‘Cause we can, and you can, we all can dance x4

 

Verse

Y’all know

A party ain’t a party if everyone is scared to dance

Yo sister

What’s the purpose of the temple if you didn’t come to lift your hands?

Say brother, my opinion is

That you better get it while you have a chance

‘Cause you can sing a song

But it don’t compare to the meaning of dance

 

Pre-chorus

Watch us as we come to celebrate

Lifting up the Lord strong and mighty

Lift your heart, you’re not going crazy

Don’t stop

Get it, get it

Don’t stop

Get it, get it

Well are you gonna dance? (Yes I am)

Well are you gonna sing? (Ooo na na na na na)

Well are you gonna dance? (Yes I am)

Well then, do that thing

 

Chorus

 

 

Verse

Ooo, excitement’s getting hard for me to contain

I’m getting hyped off a song that keeps mentioning Your name

Good God

It’s funny how when you dance you forget all about your pain

So when you see me next time Ima be doing the same

‘Cause we can, and you can, we all can dance!

Verse

I still love Your style

A true definition of a friend

Verse

I still get butterflies

Sometimes I just close my eyes

Reminisce on what you said

Dying to get next to me

I know I didn’t notice at first

But thank You for my life’s new birth

Verse

On the outside, seems you’re doing well

On the inside, I see it hurts like hell

Looks to me like pride won’t let you tell

Each day ahead aches more as your mind swells

 

Sadness increases more each day

The buzz won’t even take it away

Now you pray Lord for Heaven’s sake

Writing a letter saying it’s your last day

 

Chorus

Let’s talk about it

Let’s talk about it

Let’s talk about it

Let’s talk about it

Let’s talk about it

Ooo, let’s talk about it

 

Verse

I know its wearing you out

Don’t be ashamed, ever, to open your mouth

Only God knows what you can bear

And together your burdens we can share

 

Don’t be fooled by the enemy

It’s not the man but just the God in me

I’m not here to hold you in my arms,

Just here to help you through the storm

 

 

Chorus x2

 

Can we talk about it?
