It was once upon a time not long ago
Lived a little black boy in the middle of the ghetto
Pretty good kid but he always found trouble
Inner city life it ain't hard to find trouble
No income in the home you find struggle
2 years struggling it's no puzzle
He hit the block hard and found him a hustle
Burned the wrong bridge and now he needs muscle
He tried to let it go but the streets don't forgive
I guess they ain't heard of live and let live
But after going round and round he broke it down finally found out
That only god can save him now

[Chorus:]
Save me now, please save me now, save me now, please save me now
I'm on my knees, down at the floor
You're the one I need oh lord
Save me now

I heard the story many times before
Still I'm wondering
How in the world did I get here
And what am I doing
Took the ring and acted like I do
Without the ceremony
Now I got three little ones and I'm
Hurting and I'm lonely
Threw away my dreams when I left school
Now I'm 22 never should've choose him over you

[Chorus]

Take me away
I don't wanna stay here
I wanna go
Back to the beginning
To that place
Where love is forever
You and me together
Lord will you please
