    through the years
    and through the tears
    through the crying out for attention
    you finally saw me

    and with one hand you gave
    and with the other hand you took
    and with one hand i gave
    and with the other hand i took

    finally on a level playing field
    given a second chance by god
    who must want to see us together
    he must want black families to thrive

    but best of all
    it's good to know
    we're no longer living a lie
    being together

    loving one another
    smiling and laughing
    that time together is pure
    are you my husband? sure

    but what makes a marriage is so much more
    from time to time there will be closed doors
    and from time to time some will be open
    but weathering these times
    that's what makes a marriage

    when you can write up years
    and you can wipe away fears
    and you can know that in the end
    you stand together

    that's what it's all about
    know this
    that we are one
    that before god we are together
    and before god we will never part
