Just a crack (2)

crack

I didn’t know if I was ever coming back to that shabby, ignorant neighborhood but I knew one thing, I had to get away to find myself.

Many would look me in the eye and say I was a cold little girl simply overcome with her thirst for the finer things in life and some might be right but I was sure like I had never been sure, I needed to get away, from Jacqueline, from her boyfriend Djimon and that demonic cat that always watched me as I slept.

I would come back for my siblings I figured, after some time, but I needed to be able to take good care of them when that time came, after all “ the loneliest of lions always found comfort in the warmth of her cubs” I would very much love to dwell on them but for their sake I had to leave.

Who You Rollin’ Wit -Trip lee, (feat. Flame & Json)

Who you rollin’ with (Who you rollin’ with, who you rollin’ with)

Are they livin’ unashamed of His name?
Or are they trippin’ fakin’ this thang?
Are they livin’ fo da kang a da kangs?
Yeah, Yeah

[Flame:]
My cats don’t chase fame
My cats don’t smoke weed
My cats don’t chase chain
No, we got what we need
My cats don’t chase chicks
My cats don’t sip on
My cats don’t stack bricks
Man, we focused on the Lord
My cats got each other
We call it brotherly love
And yeah we draped out and covered in Jesus’ blood
My homies they straight pray
My homies they straight fast
My homies are so serious
An’ they ain’t chasin’ cash
My sisters are so serious
And they ain’t chasin’ men
My sisters guardin their hearts
And strayin away from sin
My sisters they dress modest
Ain’t showin off all their skin
My sisters they run a race in preparation to win
My squad stay in this faith
Cause man we know we can slip
That’s why we stay dependent and remain off in His grip
My squadron never forget that we were scum of da earth (earth)
Livin dead in our sin He came in and gave us birth
That’s serious

[Chorus]

[Json:]
When I’m with my squad it might be hard to spot me
Cause we all look like a Jesus
Carbon copy
We church boys (yeah)
This is the charge I’m hoping you see the desperate need
Believers run together like the legs on a centipede (oh)
Oh yes indeed we fall but we get up Lifted up
By the body that’s called to pick us up
So we must be surrounded by accountability partners. Without none,
Christian livings intentionally harder
Hope you’re listening partner
Cause the fact of the matter is what happens here just hurts your walk
Like feet calluses look hard and there’s something you should peep
You will see that we are the very company we keep, even me
(Who you rollin with)
Is it cat’s that’s complacent or
Dudes that continue to grow in wisdom and patience
(Who you rollin with)
Because this part here is crucial
Show our heart and hopes maybe the feeling is mutual

[Chorus]

[Trip Lee:]
Look man we gotta roll with cats that’s out shootin fo da same thang
Like target practice
God know as you look around it’s hard in fact it’s
Real discouraging instead of saints they all look backwards
But we gotta find some dudes (dudes)
Be up in the pews
Pray away from booze
Like to spread good news
That ain’t chasin after chicks
That ain’t livin fo dem selvs
Ain’t blazin up the spliffs
That ain’t out der tryin to sell (yeah)
So take a look at the dudes in your squad
How they tryna be like Christ or Diddy, Ludacris, and Nas, yeah
And to my sisters, are the girls up in ya crew (crew)
Dancin like Beyoncé or followin His rules
Where we need accountability fo times when we gon fall (fall)
So when we start slippin we got folks that we can call (call)
They can help us get back (back)
Back to servin Christ (Christ)
We gotta roll with cats (cats)
That’s after eternal life
Who you rollin with?

 

Be still- Anthony Evans

Always thought you wouldn’t love me
Just the way I am
So I tried to satisfy you
I didn’t understand
How misguided I was in my search to know you love
I was working hard in all the wrong ways
Living life chaotically never sitting at your feet
Until you taught me the true meaning of grace

[Chorus:]
Be still there is peace
In your arms I am free
My heart is all you want from me
So I will be still

It’s so crazy yet so amazing
Now I finally see
I tried to do my best for you when
All you wanted was me
You saw right through my foolishness
Never loved me any less
Waiting with your arms opened wide
Now I’m no longer afraid
I know your love for me won’t change
It took me so long but now I’ve realized

[Chorus]

Here I am distractions aside
Wanting you to change my life I’m
Resting in your relentless love
I’ve finally found that you are enough

[Chorus 2X]

Conqueror- Mali Music

The enemy comes only to
Steal, kill, and destroy
And because we don’t know who and who’s we are
We come and let them steal our joy

Yes, its true, we all fall short
But, still that gives us no excuse
Soon the enemy is fighting you
Just tell him to prepare to lose
Cuz’ I’m…
(more than a conqueror) [x4]

Because of God’s covenant with me
I’ll always have the victory
No matter what you take from me..
God still get’s glory from me

The kingdom’s sufferin’ violence
And the violence taketh by force
So, today we make a stand
Cuz’ we’re not takin’ it no more
(more than a conqueror) [x11]
(more than, more than, more than the conqueror) [x6]

Available- Mali Music

So many time in my life
(life)
Have I tried to do it all by myself
(self)
But after numerous failures I realized
(lized)
That the glory is due to God and no one else
(else)
I was runnin to and fro tryna make things happen
(slow down)
That’s what I’d hear Him say but it ain’t until something bad happens
(that turned my life upside down)
Or will I give up Jesus
(Jesus)
It’s all in your hands now Father
(Father)
Do what you will with me, have your way
(have your way)

Lord please keep me in your will
Lord help me to be still
I just wanna be avaylable to you
(yeah)
I will do whatever you
You instruct me to do
I just wanna be avaylable to you
(yeah)

Not once, not twice, not three times
(times)
Have I dropped the ball when it was on the line
(line)
But please believe the last time was the last time
(time)
Cuz I’m gonna let your will be done and not mine
(not mine)
Things have gotten better, the sun’s a little brighter
(brighter)
And since I cast my cares on you I’ll feel a little lighter
(lighter)
Now I can hold my head high, stick my chest out
(out)
Because your will will surely be carried out
(no doubt about it)

Lord please keep me in your will
Lord help me to be still
I just wanna be avaylable to you
(yeah)
I will do whatever you
You instruct me to do
I just wanna be avaylable to you
(yeah)

I won’t move, I’ll wait
(I’ll sit here and I’ll wait)
Until you show me the way
(lead me in the right direction)
The safest place
(it’s in the will of God)
Patiently I’ll wait
(Jesus)

Lord please keep me in your will
Lord help me to be still
I just wanna be avaylable to you
(yeah)
I will do whatever you
You instruct me to do
I just wanna be avaylable to you
(yeah)

Higher- Mali Music

[Verse 1]
Got saved, been saved
Too saved, been praisin and
Livin for me for a long long time
Workin hard stayin on that grind that’s right
Sayin u wanna be avaylable
Touchin lives and blessin souls
Never been ashamed of that ole gospel
Holdin on and ya show nuff wanna let go
But there’s a little something I’ve noticed
I held my tongue so you can stay focused but
It’s been a while since u called my name
Or even prayed like u used to in the good ole days
Yea I see u shining like a star
But I think you’ve gotten comfortable with where u are
So much I wanna show ya
So much I have for ya.

[Hook:]
So come up a little higher, higher, higher, higher, high… [repeat]

[Verse 2]
(higher) is where I wanna take ya
(further) is where I want u to go
(wider) every city every nation
(I) I really love u so
But u gotta go deeper
Gotta increase the word ya know
So I can show a little more
So u can preach the gospel
Eyes have not seen,
Don’t nobody know
What I have in store for u
But to fly a little higher
You gotta let your wing span grow
Just desire and want me
Keep your spirit man wanting
Don’t lose your zeal
Stay hungry

[Hook (repeat)]

[Bridge:]
Just put your trust in me
I’ve got everything that u need
Hope you’re not afraid of heights
If you are then you’ll be alright
Don’t close your eyes
Spread your wings and fly
Get comfortable cuz this is your life
High in the sky with me, Come on and fly with me
As we go high…as we go high…high..ohhh high…

[Hook (6 times)]

[Ending]
As we go high…as we go high…ohhh high…as we go high..as we go high..
