    The Trouble With You

    The Trouble With You
    Is You Keep Telling Me How
    You Don't Want To Live Right
    You Don't Want To Be Saved
    And All That Junk
    But I Know I Saw You Reading Your Bible
    And Quoting Your Scriptures
    I Think I Even Saw You
    Macho Man, Shedding A Tear
    Because The Spirit Took Hold Of You

    The Trouble With You
    Is You So Worried About Your Boys
    And What They Gonna Think Of You
    That You Forgot We Got This Man Child Here
    To Look Out For
    He's Looking To You As His Example
    So How You Gonna Lead Him And Guide Him
    Without The Word

    The Trouble With You
    Is You Never Had No Guidance, Direction
    Or Protection
    So You Think You Gotta Do Everything For Yourself
    Oh Yes, But I Hear You Late At Night
    Whispering So You Don't Think I Can Hear
    You Asking God For Strength To Make It

    The Trouble With You
    Is You

    it's in me ...

    yes, reminds me of a song we used to sing in church ...

    ... the failure's not in God, it's in me.

    very nice
