Lyrics

Why does he love us?

Written By: Lyrical

1st verse = Drunk man approached me late night, eyes with fright / gasping, yelling, tryna preach wrong from right / he said Gods coming soon, don’t you get it? / I looked at him crazy, passed him off as schizophrenic / but as we continued to conversate he made more sense / spoke of his visions of how it was before Christ left / how he came to earth to save us, and many deceived him / he cured the blind and still, they didn’t believe him / and although, by many he had been loved and adored / some wanted him dead for stating he was the son of the lord / he arrived with his heart, they came with the thorns / beat him down to the ground, a punishment that just wasn’t deserved / the man mentioned, how Jews are blamed for his crucifixion / and how its all a lie, every single one of us did it / and till this day we still continue with evil sinning / warned if changes aren’t made, all on earth will diminish

Chorus = I once was told a drunk mind speaks sober words / let me try sober, listen close there lessons to be learned / & my prediction is extinction soon to come to us / unless we get up off this path were soon to self destruct / when our whole world falls apart, oh now in God we trust / or we chose the liquor and drugs to care for us / all the rapes, robberies & the gunnen / all the sins we commit, I wonder why does he love us?

2nd verse = Jesus had lived perfect, was murdered age 33 / we live to see 100 die peacefully in our sleep / shown mercy even though were not worthy of such a present / falling victim to doing dirty and never repenting / in hard times, were quick to ask the lord to bless us / but we still cant make time to read the book he left us / how many blame him for these catastrophes and get mad? / ask more for favors than giving thanks for the things that they have / truth be told, our whole state of mind is embarrassing / not all Christians is mystic, not all Muslims is terrorist / not all priest molest children, but you think that you know / & it’s the judging that we do that upsets him the most / stereotypes some live by, and they just wont let go / but my gods about love, those thoughts tarnish the soul / losing control of ourselves, and refusing his guidance / sometimes I fear the end is near because we chose to be blinded

CHORUS

3rd verse = The compassion that God has shown us we’ve been abusing / and every time we make a mistake we just give excuses / feeling useless plus with burdens, I’m to overwhelmed / so many wrongs to right but first I need to start with myself / thanks for my health and for a family that protects me and cares / foolish me for being blind, whole time my angels were there / darkest moments of despair you stood by me everyday / and I thank you so much for taking mommy cancer away / think of the days I cursed your name but still you followed above me / with all the troubles I’ve caused, how could you possibly love me? / with all the secrets only you know that ill take to the grave / to painful to ever say, much deeper than one can pray / often put my faith in others who would leave me betrayed / took me sometime to realize you’ll never leave me a stray / when life through me the wrong direction you would show me the way / during hard times many had left, amazed that you always stayed

CHORUS

Without explanations or reasons he just does / like parents should love there kids despite whatever they’ve done / & you’ll be forgiven for sinning if truly repented / his love is always there, but its on you to accept it / its not so much biblical, religion or miracles / its having a relationship with him, its spiritual / Id wonder why he cares so much, & now I know / My Testament is Gods love is unconditional

3rd verse: IM TALKING WAY BACK TO WHEN DAP WAS WORTH MORE THAN A CONTRACT/ AND PROBLEMS COULD GET RESOLVED WITHOUT NEEDING TO SCRAP/ AND IF YOU DID, YOUD JUST THROW UP YOUR FIST, NO NEED TO SHOOT/ IN A TIME WHEN A PREGNET TEENAGER WOULD MAKE THE NEWS/ WHEN NEVER SNITCHING, AND SHOWING RESPECT WERE PART OF THE RULES/ CHOOSING LOVE FOR THE CREW, DESPITE WHAT COPS THREATENED TO DO/ JUMPSUITE BEFORE YOU EVER BETRAY THOSE CLOSEST TO YOU/ BACK WHEN LOYALTY WAS WORTH A LOT MORE THAN JEWLERY/ MCS WITH SKILLS SOLD MORE THAN CATCHY MELODYS / MIC IN YOUR HAND WAS THE FAM, CORPERATE OFFICE ENEMY/ RADIO PLAYING THE SAME GARBAGE IS WHAT IVE OBSERVED/ & THAT’S WHY, SOME OF THE GREATEST RAPPERS WILL NEVER BE HEARD/ REVIVE THE HIP HOP I LOVED THAT’S BECOME SO DORMANT/ REMEMBER WHEN 5 MICS IN THE SOURCE WAS SOMETHING IMPORTANT? / THOUGHTS OF THINGS THAT ID CHANGE AS I WALK THROUGH THE BLOCKS/ JUST WANTING TO GRAB & TURN BACK THE HANDS ON THE CLOCK

Love Letter

Written By: Lyrical

Chorus = My love, I think about you daily, in case you didn’t know / cherish the moments we’ve shared & never let them go / so strong we grown together, need you forever more / I want this here forever, I put it on my soul

1st verse = Always be by your side, for worst or for better / & I know its been a while since I wrote you a letter / love I promise forever, faithful ima stay / I need you more than any words on a page could explain / your souls one of a kind, without a drop of fake / the way you smile no one compares, or could ever replace / stars shine brighter when we conversate / beautiful angel on earth is what your presence illustrates / cant wait, to make you my wife, a new journey I’ll be / your already my heart, your already my queen/ & it seems as time goes, we grow closer in spirit / learn from experiences, & remain committed / I know nothings perfect, some days gonna be bad / but I know we can make it thru cause of the love we have / never thought a relationship like this could exist / feel blessed I have you to spend eternity with
