My Friend

Original and similar lyrics
We are standing at the crossroads And now it's time For you to go your way And me to go mine I will pray the Lord Will keep you safe Until the day I see your face again [c h o r u s] My friend We have been through so much And you have been my Godsend With your sure and steady love My friend You know I will be there If you ever need 'Cause you've always Been a friend to me I may travel the world over But one thing I know for sure One day this road will lead me Back 'round to your door I will pray the Lord Will keep you safe Some bonds are just too strong To break in the end [c h o r u s] Nothing will change the way I feel about you Not the miles or the years Or the place this life takes me to [c h o r u s]

KILLER MIKE "R.A.P. Music"
[Verse 1:] You are witnessing elegance in the form of a black elephant Smoking white rhino on terraces Will I die slain like my king by a terrorist? Will my woman be Coretta, take my name and cherish it? Or will she Jackie O, drop the Kennedy, remarry it? My sister say it's necessary on some Cleopatra shit My grandmama said nope, never, that it's sacrilege Tend to agree because the thought is so disparaging The Lord give a load, you got to carry it like Mary did That's why I'm giving honor to all these baby mommas It takes a woman's womb to make a Christ or Dalai Lama The world might take that child, turn that child into a monster The Lord'll take a monster and fashion him a saint I present you Malcolm X for those who saying that He can't Saying that He won't, when I know He will You usually don't know it's you until you getting killed For real [Hook: Scar] Dear Lord, have mercy On your once forgotten life like it's a game We love I won't be forced to shut up when I don't feel the same Cause people gonna lie Some people gonna steal You gotta be careful not to shit where you live Them people might try to have you killed Lord have mercy, life is such a battlefield For real [Verse 2: Killer Mike] I ain't never gave a fuck I never did and never will Live my life on press appeal Keep it true, keep it real Better said, I keep it trill And no matter who don't like it, homie That's just how it is Naked truth like the stripper that's in front of me And I keep a blunt and a 5-11 gun on me Why? Cause I'm country-bred Actually, I'm south-er-ern Something like my brethren The legendary Andre 3K, Cee Lo, Goodie, and some other men You should pay some homage, it's an honor this This is not a fiction that is sold by conglomerates This is Soul of Black Folks mixed with Donald Goines shit Better said rob a bet, esoteric I could get This is John Gotti painting pictures like Dali This is Basquiat with a passion like Pac In a body like Biggie, telling stories like Ricky If a rapper was to spar, please tell him better kick it You with me? [Hook] [Outro: Killer Mike] I don't trust the church or the government Democrat, Republican Pope or a bishop or them other men And I believe God has sustained you with rap So I pick a burning bush, put it in a Swisher wrap And they can't kill a G, I seen how I die I'm only going once, a coward dies a thousand times I'm a spit this ghetto gospel over all these gutter songs I'm gone

Mary's Song

KELLY PRICE "One Family-Christmas Album"
Before time my life was chosen for this miracle performed, that through me would come a baby who would one day be my Lord. But right now he's just a baby and the world is not so sure, cause while some bow down to worship there are some who laugh and scorn. But there's a will and there's a purpose that I know He must fulfill and the reason why you chose me very soon will be revealed. But for now can I just hold Him and keep him in my arms and for now can I just hold Him and keep Him safe from Lord, I'll give Him back to you Little ordinary Mary little Baby Jesus boy He's divine in all your planning but for me he's pride and joy. but in Him there is a story that the prophets have foretold, there is honor, there is glory there's redemption for us all. Can't even think about Him crucified. Can't even think that He was born to die. Innocent baby my heart says why? Cause he's just a little child. ¡¡

Nothing New

Dogwood
Give me time to watch this go I will pack all of my dreams and I'll go home Once again I'm nothing new Quick to speak slow to listen and quick to lose I'm fine Just lies to keep you from the truth Fit in, belong, what's wrong? Is there something I can do? There is, my friend, please help me see this through I still don't how You forgive I guess there's hope, the reason I still live And when they hear this song, they'll write it off because of faith Not because of things I do or say I'm fine Just lies to keep you from the truth Fit in, belong, what's wrong? Is there something I can do? There is my friend, these words will stick like glue Lord, take my life, 'cause it's better off with you I slip, I fall, by now it's nothing new Lord help me see, 'cause you've got a better view Take what's left and make it something new Make it something new Just because we never learned to give up Challenge my beliefs I'll choose to stand up Overcoming fears, compromising never Till the very end we'll be together Repeat 3x

A Hustler's Prayer

ACE HOOD "Starvation"
I rebuke the devil away from me No weapon formed against me shall prosper Pray for me mama Live, Starvation If I should die before I wake I pray and ask the lord for my soul to take Niggas dyin’ everyday so I keep that Glock on me I’m just thankful I woke up to see another day hey ey [x2] Man I’m sick and tired of this bullshit And I lost my dog and I felt like this the worst that it could get Till I lost my daughter, felt like emptyin’ out that full clip And I put it on my mind feel for the hand, I’m just gonna slow sip Cuz I’m way to stressed and again I’m blessed because I’m still here Lookin’ in that mirror I can see a man with no fear Oh lord, oh lord this world is hell although we livin’ in it Gotta keep my vibe. Oh why? Oh why must I just keep on sinnin’? Tryin’ to keep it real in a world so fake, now can I get a witness? Got niggas killing over Jordan’s, getting life in prison I’m tryna tell you man Watch the ones who you hang around The enemy approaching any second now If I should die before I wake I pray and ask the lord for my soul to take Niggas dyin’ everyday so I keep that Glock on me I’m just thankful I woke up to see another day hey ey [x2] Woke up early in the morning, said I gotta get it Loadin’ up my pistol, I just pray that all my sins forgiven And I know I’m livin’ wrong but mama, you just pray for me Gotta make this money so my family forever eating That Jesus piece around my neck keep the devil away from me In an old school cut let’s keep that problem with me on the secret Just hopin’ right but the man above before I go to sleepin’ In nothing lesser than a G, that’s how they bury me Have mercy on ‘em If I should die before I wake Pull me out some liquor when you’re at the wake And I’ll be good as long as I know my daughter’s straight Realest shit I ever wrote, this has a hustler's prayer If I should die before I wait I pray and ask the lord for my soul to take Niggas dyin’ everyday so I keep that Glock on me I’m just thankful I woke up to see another day hey ey [x2]
