    Friends and family don’t cry.
    You’ll see the future in my eyes.
    Because the lovin’ is strong,
    And there’s no more power in lies.
    I’m no longer a slave to my past,
    Because when you’re more concerned with the future, you move on, and shame doesn’t last.
    Had to stop giving in to tendencies,
    Because the same old habits don’t let you see past the discrepancies.
    I look at where I used to be.
    A future like this that’s so heavenly, I couldn’t see.
    I knew that how I changed my ways would lead me to being happy.
    I just needed a little reality to slap me.
    With trivial matters my children don’t even bother.
    These things don’t hold them down, like they did their father.
    I’m lovin’ my wife until the death, forever.
    And makin’ it to heaven is my last endeavor.
    There is no trace of shame because I’ve long since learned my lesson.
    But in order for this to happen,
    Lord, I need a blessing.
