People say I've got my hands in too many things  Keeping time with paupers just as well as kings 
I toss my hat up to the silver sky

I close my eyes and still somehow I feel
You're here with me
And you are such a blessing in my life
Here I am, I'm just a fragment of my God

 Sometimes life gets so hard
With you as my desire 
Spirit's gonna build me higher 
I've got to keep my irons in the fire
Got to keep my irons in the fire
