Last updated: 04/06/2009 12:00:00 PM

Common (talking)
phone rang, screen said caller ID blocked,
but for some reason i decided to answer it.
on the other end was a french accent.
he told me we needed to rap quick,
cause he had did some bad shit,
and would be gone for years, spending these last two days,
with his momma and his kids
when he spoke I wasn't trying to hear it ,cause
I knew he was a real good person,
and this didn't seem like it was in his spirit.
he couldnt believe as much as i couldnt, what he done .
he said now its time for him to turn himself in.
no longer could he run, from life, from God.
I start thinkin, why is doing right is so hard.
I thought back to when we was in London discussin the new testament
and how our lives related to it, and how we could make the best of it.
my voice became desperate, so I asked him why you gotta go.
he said you know turn to Matthew 24
he said no one knows the hour, nor do they know the day,
but the kingdom is near, don't let anything lead you astray.
as long as God is with me, everything will be okay.
so right about then,we decided to pray.

just lyin back makin the smoke disperse away....
deep into clouds (deep into clouds)
it's makin things appear to me so clearly....
deep in the clouds (deep in the clouds)
just lyin back makin the smoke disperse away...
deep in the clouds (deep in the clouds)
it's makin things appear to me so clearly...
deep into clouds (yeah,)

your time
is a terrible to waste!!!
for theres
not one of these possesions that you can bring to space (yeah, it don't matter)
its a challenge,
but the chance of seeing, is quite a dream to chase (yes it is)
I hope
I remind God of him when he sees my face (yeah)
he gon see it!

(keeps on )
this feeling just keeps on lifting me higher (ever)
and its everflowing it's everflowing
(keeps on )
when every thing, puts a smile on my face(ever-flowing, ever-flowing)
and i recognize the strong goal
but i keep on going, i keep on going (he keeps on going)
i keep on going on!!
(he keeps on going echo)

Jill Scott

no strain
simply peace.... simply

Papa Lynn (talkin)
Heaven, heaven is being pops
heaven is spending the day with your grandchildren
listenin to they voices whenand they laughing and play
and then at the end of the day we hug we kiss and slowly they walk away
and then suddenly they turn and rush back to me and hug me round the knees
yeah, that's heaven to me
