Girl, Me and the Lods been friends for a mighty long time 
(such a mighty long time, such a mighty long time) 
And girl, the thought of leavin' you has never crossed my mind 
(Well oh oh..) 

Up in the street and misguided never payed attention 
So I got my soul devine, player's soul decided 
to let my soul confide with the lights of him 
Who the father, my bread and my water 
I never bought a cue and into this (?) 
Down in my world are you going let you hypocrites 
It'll take your life to be a Christian man 
I hope you learn, everything else 
Is in vein so you're bound to burn 
Gonna break your bone 
I'm in a war don't let this life game over-rule 
Trying take control of you 
That's all the devil do 
God was in Jesus, God is in us 
But God ain't in the barrel of that pistol that you bust 
You can play this game wrong, you gotta take it how it goes, 
Is there ever a feeling for living if the body's gone 
I never understood why what can make a man cry, 
It can make a man strong when nobody's on his side 

Girl, (girl) Me and the Lords been friends for a mighty long time 
(such a mighty long time, such a mighty long time) 
And girl, the thought of leavin' you has never crossed my mind 
(Never crossed my mind, never crossed my mind, oooh) 
(Well oh oh..) 

Back and forth, night and day, you repeat the same scene 
Standing at the pool a bit, time to repent again 
Mostly men have a gun just put that down on circle purpose 
When the poo of the world, got me standin by the circle 
Agitate you, yes it does, this is what you though was love 
Only name, same to be lust, mixed emotions make you want to bust 
Mamma tryin, children cryin, dad outta work, welfare lying 
Prejudice, always see, the bottom of the barrel 
Falling down on my knees, heavenly father, here we go on knowing 
That we get to heaven, there's gonna be some open arms, 
Judgment was man-made, not a [..], and this I recorded, 
But I didn't live the party, but I thank that my heart beat, 
Gotta make me, oh sure Jesus I don't know if there's a hell, 
But I know I've whitnessed hell here, all I do is dwell here 
Trying not to trail here, saying too much will get you knocked off or locked up in jail here 
Tell me do you smell fear, knowing that we so near, 
Trying to take the voices of the truth, out the youth ear, 
And if you late a time frame, you play all kind of mind games, 
I ain't put my life on the line for a damn thing 

Girl, Me and the Lords been friends for a mighty long time 
(such a mighty long time, such a mighty long time) 
And Girl, (I don't really want to be without you) the thought of leavin' you has never crossed my mind 
(Never crossed my mind) 
(Well oh oh..) 

I can never make it, I can never ever make it 
Without you baby 
Cause you've been my best friend 
Girl, 
When everybody turned their back on me, 
You were there when I fell down on my knees 
And I give you all, all of me, 
And every part of me, oooowoooo, 

Girl, me and the Lords been friends for a mighty long time 
(For long time, such a mighty long time) 
And girl, (I don't really want to be without you) the thought of leavin you has never crossed my mind 
(Never crossed my mind) 
(Well oh oh..) 

I'm a live, I will never leave o no no 
When the people say, c'mon and go with me 
'Cause I will never leave you, and you've been my best friend 
nobody understand, but they can't look inside of me, 
o yeah.. 
[fade out]
