Lyrics

It's You

Written By: Tresey

When I was down you picked me up
You never left me down in the dumps
And even when I wanted to run
You sustained me with your love
And when I wanted to let go
You anwered me back with a no
And when I felt like breaking down youturned my whole life around

It's you You brighten up my life
You make everything alright
And I wanna say thank you for the day you came my way

It's you you brighten up my day
You make everything okay
And Lord I want to say
Oh Thank You

When I was lonely you were my friend
You had my back even way back when
I was trying to figure out
What this life is all about
You taught me how to just be strong
Knowing you won't lead me wrong
And sometimes when I get tired
You carry me through the fire

Its You, You brighten up my life
You make everything alright
And I wanna say thank you for the day you came my way

It's you you brighten up my day
You make everything okay
And Lord I want to say
Oh Thank You

It's not about me no
It's all about you yes
It's not about me no
It's all about you, all about you

It's not about me no
It's all about you yes
It's not about me no
It's all about you, all about you

It's you, It's you
I'm so into you
It's all about you
It's you
It's You

Its You, You brighten up my life
You make everything alright
And I wanna say thank you for the day you came my way

It's you you brighten up my day
You make everything okay
And Lord I want to say
Oh Thank You

I'm not gon conform to the things of this world, Imma be a God's girl
In my home, in my school, on my job, in the streets
I'll let the world know that

I'm not gon conform to the things of this world, Imma be a God's girl
In my home, in my school, on my job, in the streets
I'll let the world know that

They say you can't make no money singing gospel
And to sell a million records you have to sell your soul
They say you're not beautiful unless you show
Everything from your head down to your toes shaking in the videos

I'm not gon conform to the things of this world, Imma be a God's girl
In my home, in my school, on my job, in the streets
I'll let the world know that

They say it's okay to giveup your virtue
But when you become a young mother their not there to help you
They say you can't have the fortune and the fame
Because you're lifting up my Jesus name now ain't that a real shame

I'm not gon conform to the things of this world, Imma be a God's girl
In my home, in my school, on my job, in the streets
I'll let the world know that

I'm not gon conform to the things of this world, Imma be a God's girl
In my home, in my school, on my job, in the streets
I'll let the world know that

When you hear me on the radio
I'm praising my Jesus know
That when you see me on the tv screen
I'm representing my king
And when you see me up on the stage please know that I am really saved
And when you see me up in the church I'm doing my father's work

I'm not gon conform to the things of this world, Imma be a God's girl
In my home, in my school, on my job, in the streets
I'll let the world know that

I'm not gon conform to the things of this world, Imma be a God's girl
In my home, in my school, on my job, in the streets
I'll let the world know that
