Mary Mary is an American contemporary gospel duo, consisting of sisters Erica Atkins-Campbell (born (1972-04-29)April 29, 1972) and Trecina "Tina" Atkins-Campbell (born (1974-05-02)May 2, 1974). The duo are often credited along with Kirk Franklin for broadening the fan base of urban contemporary gospel in the 2000s by introducing elements of soul music, hip hop, funk and jazz. Mary Mary broke onto the music scene with their popular song "Shackles (Praise You)"—which is considered one of the pioneering songs of urban contemporary gospel music. The group's name, as stated in an interview is inspired by the two famous Mary's from the Bible; Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, and Mary Magdelene. more »

I know it now that I was such a fool
To turn my back on you
When you had given me everything
I let you down, I know that's true
Now I've come to realize that there
There are no happy days because
You're not here, I need to know if
There's a chance for me again, oh

All I need is one minute of your time
Five seconds of it may change your mind
Ten seconds to make you see
Fifteen to say lord I'm sorry
For all the things I've done
I'll take twenty more to say you're the one
Nine to think it through
I'll take the one to say I love you

Late at night when I was all alone
You held me in your arms
I strayed away only to find
There was no place to hide
Lord please hear me when I say
I'll give my life to you
Whatever I've gotta do
Show me lord and I will live for you


I'm not willing to, to give up on you
Knowing that you always stood right by me
Until you forgive me my world won't turn
So if you hear me lord
I'm saying that I'm sorry
Said I'm saying that I'm sorry, oh

[Chorus: x2]
