    Everything seems so very bleak and dim
    not that the lights are down low
    I just feel all alone
    who's got my back

    Life is throwing some real vicious curves
    rent has to be paid
    lights must stay on
    food needs to be on the table
    and you've already robbed Peter and Paul
    who's got my back

    Family hummmm.....
    sometimes they aint sh$t
    act like you don't exist
    yeah yeah we understand
    you just caught me at a bad time
    everytime and anytime
    who's got my back

    Friends say....
    I'll always be there
    they move away
    fall in love, lust, or I gotta make this right...this time
    he/she don't like you ... you know what I mean
    oops sorry I forgot
    who's got my back

    I casted my burdens upon his altar

    I shed my fears, sorrows, sobs and tears at his feet

    I let it all go

    I opened my arms and said....
    here I am please do your will

    Not fighting him this time

    I am asking

    No!!!!! No!!!!!
    I am begging him to
    please.... please.....
    have my back

    He said.....
    "Thy will be done, I'll always have your back"
