Why do you hit me?
You know I ain't your punchin' bag
Since when do thorns try to hurt the roses?
And why are you always mad?

Said I, I'm so innocent, and you're, you're so ignorant
Raise your fist, hit or miss
Try to take my happiness
Well, that ain't happenin' to me no more

'Cause I, I, I found a loving father and I, I, I'm fly away
To a place where I can smile and cry
'Cause I know I'm gonna make it today, yeah
Said I know I'm gonna make it today

I woke up this mornin'
As I wiped the sleep from my eyes
Got a real good feelin', yeah
For the first time I had no reason to cry

So I said, "My Father
Lord, thanks for the changin' my life
Lord, thanks for holdin' me, showin' me
What real love is like"

'Cause you're so true to me
So I try, try to be true to you
You love me when no one, no one even cared for me
So I can face the rain and smile again

'Cause I, I, I found a loving father and I, I, I'm fly away
To a place where I can smile and cry
'Cause I know I'm gonna make it today, yeah
Said I know I'm gonna make it today

What's the bottle for, and why are you so mad?
I thought that mama said you're supposed to be our loving dad
But alcohol done took control of your life
Now you do the same and try to take control of your wife and kids
So I'ma speak for all the quiet and scared
Too afraid to stand 'cause they can't face their fears

Take a look in the mirror, MJ says, "Change your ways to see clearer"
God says, "There's always a way out
Ain't no temptation that ain't played out"
Since the beginnin' of time, Satan's been roamin' the earth
Trying to tempt the weak willed to hate and hurt

And since sins birth, I know your lives been hard
Need to stop beatin' us and start beatin' your problems
So today is when we stop the hurt
Get up, it's 10 o'clock, yo, we're goin' to church

'Cause I, I, I found a loving father and I, I, I'm fly away
To a place where I can smile and cry
'Cause I know I'm gonna make it today, yeah
Said I know I'm gonna make

'Cause I, I, I found a loving father and I, I, I'm fly away
To a place where I can smile and cry
'Cause I know I'm gonna make it today
I know I'm gonna make it today
I know I'm gonna make it today
