Kirk Franklin How It Used To Be Lyrics

Last updated: 11/12/2009 10:00:00 AM

[Verse I]
I ain't gonna lie
I can't even count the days
Or the many nights I tried living here alone
A heart full of pride
And couldn't see the enemy was me
I was blind and thought my second chance was gone

[Verse II]
A ship without a sail
Battered by a ranging sea
Taking any love I can to try and stop the pain
while waiting to exhale
I finally got on my knees
I know it's been a long time; do You still remember my name?

[B Section]
Can I go back in time?
Can I have another try?
But I can't change yesterday

[Chorus]
Oh, I can't take another day without You
'Cause this heart don't beat the same without
I forgot who was, got caught up in this world
Jesus, I apologized
I should've lost my mind without You
Not another sleepless night without You, Jesus
I'm sorry and I'm asking please make us how we used to be

[Verse III]
I try and try too keep my mind on You trouble keep calling me
Every time a wound heals, something else take the healing away
And even when I've gone too far, You knew there would come a day
Momma said what you love let it go and if it comes back, then it's back to say
You already knew i belong to only You
I run to Your arms and say

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Never knew a life so cold
I thought that things could fulfill my soul
Tried to find love on my own
It was hard to admit I was wrong
No money, no cars, no fame, no lies, no games, my life please take it

[Breakdown]
Now it comes to the break (hey)
Tell what you gon' say, you go say (I know I know)
I'll get my life right but (you know) you ain't promised tonight
Baby girl (Without You) [2X]

[Chorus 2x]
