LYRICS

Back 2 Cali- Written by: O. Hawk
I’m going to L.A., Never been to Cali
I’m going to L.A., I never been to Cali
Yo voy para L.A., regresada a Cali (I’m going to LA, Going back to Cali)
Yo voy para L.A., regresada a Cali (I’m going to LA, Going back to Cali)
-You’ll find me in (LA)
I’m going just to let y'all know
I’m going just to let God show
Angels lost in all the money and fame
So I'm going just to spread His name

Last night I had a dream, I was trying to get away
When I woke up in the morning, I was on my knees to pray
I saw Me, I saw Biggie, and I saw L.L. Cool J
Then it hit me; write a song called “Back 2 Cali”...I’m in (LA)
Lost Angels, lost in the city
I put my bags down; it’s time to get busy
My amour of God on, it’s time to get gritty
God is doing something, you better get with me..In (LA)
I’m not here to change Hollywood
Y’all I’m just here to save Hollywood
Drop some Christ bombs, to make Holly good
Save the suburbs, and preach to the hood
The money and the fame, plus the drugs and the gang
I’ll take it give to God, to Him it aint a thang
You living a lie, covered in sin, where’s the flavor?
Going to church, but you aint reaching for the savior
Jesus Christ He’s the 1 who’s gonna save ya
Born Again, well He’s the 1 who’s gonna name ya
Leave it all behind, walk away from the Limelight
God will give it all back, once he knows you got your mind right
Follow the Son and not the Hollywood stars
You’ve already won, that’s if you living by the stars
Matthew, Mark, Luke, you gotta read John
Obie, Marc, Lu, we gotta take Jon.

I’m going just to let y'all know
I’m going just to let God show
Angels lost in all the money and fame
So I'm going just to spread His name

From Long Beach, to Compton, the Watts, and Inglewood
I’m here to tell you, spread the word, God is good.
You can live without drugs, the guns, and the sex
We headed to Pasadena, we leaving L.A.X.... I’m in (LA)
Riding slow to Melrose Street
In the city of money makers, the sin rolls deep
Where the rappers, movie stars, and models get applauded
On Sunset Blvd, you gotta pray hard... In (LA)
Where people say lights, camera, action
When I leave I need a nuclear reaction
To Jesus Christ, like His child gone crazy
Grace and mercy, forgiveness, amazing
The love you feel when you worship and praising
City of LA you need to embrace Him
We leave peace and love on Rodeo Dr

We planted a seed; we know that Jesus is alive in (LA)

REAL LIFE, REAL MUSIC, IT'S MY TESTIMONY

THE INTRODUCTION- Written by: O. Hawk
I'm on the passenger seat, so God is the driver
Call me Destiny, because I'm a survivor
I've had many crashes, I failed that course
Like an automobile crashed, I felt that lose
The insurance totaled me out, said I was a goner
Like that car broke down that nobody wanna
Take time to fix up, don't invest no money, he's an ex-FreekieTwinn don't invest no honey
Adjusters came in, wrote that check
Then God came in the door, and demanded respect
Said this one is mine, I'll invest the time, raise Him from the bottom, lift him up till he shine
And when he does shine, you all hear the story
In his testimony He'll give me the glory
No depreciation, no window tint, you can see him now he doesn't have no dent
This models born again, forgiven of his sin
he let go of satan and came to his friend
The Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost
He might mention his name but my name He boast!
So Jesus Christ I love Him the most

JESUS WATCH OVER ME- Written by O. Hawk
Jesus, that’s who it be (that’s the name that saved me)
Jesus, He came for me (when I was down He raised me)
Jesus, Watch over me (protect the spirit inside of me)
Jesus, I’m gonna see (on the day He calls me)

I’m the biggest sinner that I think the world ever made
I ain't been right with my life since we had Super Dave
My prayers are worse than Ben Stiller’s and Kanye West’s
On my knees praying, thinking God won’t bless this
The rest is, worst if you look at my struggle
I was lost in the world; I had no help for my trouble
Lost in the rubble, ain't nobody saving me now
When they ask how I’m doing, I was faking a smiling
Because I was dying in my spirit, I was a FreekieTwinn
I was running through them girls living my life in sin
Y'all ain't no about the boy, because I was just that dirty
I would cover up the smudges, I was just that flirty
It just hurt me, every time I looked at my past
Every time the Lord saved me I would put Him last Him
Never again, because in my life His name comes first
So I’m always on my knees at the end of the verse

Jesus, that’s who it be (that’s the name that saved me)
Jesus, He came for me (when I was down He raised me)
Jesus, Watch over me (protect the spirit inside of me)
Jesus, I’m gonna see (on the day He calls me)

Lord you died for me, Lord you cried for me
To make a better life, Oh Lord you tried for me
But I wasn’t listening, because I was christening
Down the road of Hollywood the lights they was glistening
Camera, action, it’s time for relaxing
The women looking at me, so it’s time for attraction
Yeah, I was rapping, but I really wasn’t wrapping
Truly I was lacking a better satisfaction
The devil had my mind gone, women had my mind blown
Music at a standstill, it really had my mind torn
The devil came after me, but Jesus came back to me
After I was praying on my knees for Obafemii
Jesus saved my life dog, the only living Christ dog
I gave up the sinning, gotta send me a wife dog
Never will I go back, never will I lose track
I call on one name, only one name can do that

Jesus, that’s who it be (that’s the name that saved me)
Jesus, He came for me (when I was down He raised me)
Jesus, Watch over me (protect the spirit inside of me)
Jesus, I’m gonna see (on the day He calls me)

1st He saved me, 2nd He raised me,
3rd gave His life on the cross, am I crazy
To keep one sinning, and keep on living
I keep on sinning, but He keep on forgiving
And man that crazy, because I ain't even worth it
Why I feel the pain when my mom had to birth it
Naw I ain't perfect, but he had to work wit me
In a circuit, when u come around you’ll see
That I changed, and only because His name
I was washed in the blood, so I’ll never be the same
Almost killed by a firearm, ducking from that fellow armed
Late night all alone, praying for the Lord to come
Bullets grazed by my head, thought I was already dead
Called on the name of Jesus, and this is what He said
You need to change your ways, you need to learn to pray
That’s why I’m on my knees, that why I always say

A SONG LIKE THIS -  Written by: O. Hawk
A song like this, makes you wanna cry
A song like this, makes you wonder why
A song like this, makes you wanna try
Give your problems to God, kiss them all goodbye

I ain’t live many years, but this life here rough
I died and got saved, but this life here tough
I go to church wit my bible for that spiritual guidance
God, deliver me from this spiritual violence
I can’t stay silent, Lord when they coming for me
Evil spirits through my girl, friends, and family
Trying to get to my soul just to hurt my spirit
Lord I know you voice, but I just can’t hear it
Demons banging on the door asking them for the key
Problems falling to the floor, but they surround me
Jesus, please come down and take this burden
Sometimes I still feel like I was a virgin
But I thank you everyday for the lessons you gave me
I was on the road to die but there’s a reason you saved me
I was sinking in the sand, but you picked me up
I’m sitting on that solid rock, because you lifted me up…why

A song like this, makes you wanna cry
A song like this, makes you wonder why
A song like this, makes you wanna try
Give your problems to God, kiss them all goodbye

God sent me a lady and said this is the one
Satan sent me a freak and said this one is for fun
Lord I stopped having sex but I’m tempted to screw
Nights I’m laying by my girl and I still want too
But thank you for bringing me up out that game
Many women, different nights because me life was a drain
I was empty inside, I couldn’t find no love
I was missing everything, but got a kiss and a hug
Got a couple pregnancy scares from short term lovers
Almost got a disease, I wasn’t using them rubbers
In the clinic crying Lord, saying what is this
He came down, touch me, said dismiss this
God cleaned up my act then He sent me a rib
So I gave Him my heart, now He’s the reason I live
Tell me Lord why my brings up my past
She don’t trust me at, but you said it would last…why

A song like this, makes you wanna cry
A song like this, makes you wonder why
A song like this, makes you wanna try
Give your problems to God, kiss them all goodbye

Chinua Hawk said it best “It’s a brand new day”
If you give you problems to God and walk away
So “Its time to let myself go, I’ve been down so low, low, low”
I placed my problems on the floor, floor, floor
And said God here you go, go, go
You died on the cross, just to bless my life
Worried bout my problems when you paid that price
Stressing about my issues, when you got bigger ones
Steady fighting with my weapons, when you got bigger guns
So, I’m on my knees thanking you for the change
I, thank you because I already change
I don’t gotta get the glory, its in Jesus name
Repeat what I did you’ll be feeling the same
If this song made you cry, realize why
That I had to give it to Him so my problems could die

WALK WIT ME-  Written by O. Hawk
Come and walk with me, I want you to come and go with me

Come and take this walk wit me, I'll show you how it really go
What I think u need to no, Why we praise and worship for
Come and take this walk wit me, I'll show you how He change my flow
How I got delivered yo, Why we crying on the floor

Come and talk this walk with me, I'll tell you why they call me “O”
When I was roaming the streets, the people kept on calling “O”
Y'all really don't know where I been, living life just full of sin
Satan almost drew me in, he thought he was going to win
Come and take this walk wit me, so you'll know where it began
Let go back to the year 2G, it was Freekie 1 and me
We was yelling S.O.N., we made our first demo CD
After the shows at Booker T, moved down to Atlanta G.
I was blind I couldn't see, what I was turning into be
Changed our name to FreekieTwinnz, now our name is on the streets
‘Where Dem Girls, to ‘On The Grind, then we made ‘Back On The Grind
Sex and money on our mind, but it was a waste of time
Jesus had a bigger plan, I'll become a bigger man
So he came and gave a hand, cuz I didn't understand
Now we Obie & Markiss, all the sin I do not miss
If you tired, get some water we walking some more for this

Come and walk with me, I want you to come and go with me

Come and take this walk wit me, I'll show you how it really go
What I think u need to no, Why we praise and worship for
Come and take this walk wit me, I'll show you how He change my flow
How I got delivered yo, Why we crying on the floor

Time and time again I felt that God was trying to change my flow
I was telling myself yes, but I was telling Jesus no
I ain't want to be holy hip hop, because those fellas don’t get no props
I was steadily doing my thang, them worldly sins I couldn’t stop
I was thinking of the fame, Icy watches and a chain
Money, cars, girls, jewels, I was caught up in the game
That life ain't what it seems, I was dreaming of a dream
I was on the road to die, but God showed me ‘Behind the Scenes
I was only 17, having sex at 17, on the move at 17, it started at 17
Put my car on 17s, Romans 7:17, I had to read it 17 times so I can get just what it means
It wasn’t me sinning dog, it was sin up in me y'all
Had to call up on the Lord, because my flesh was doing wrong
Jesus Christ the king of kings, the Lord of Lords He made me free
Come and take this walk with me, there’s more things that you need to see

Come and take this walk wit me, I'll show you how it really go
What I think u need to no, Why we praise and worship for
Come and take this walk wit me, I'll show you how He change my flow
How I got delivered yo, Why we crying on the floor

If you keep on walking then, I’ll show you how it really go
I showed you a little bit, but this is what you need to know
Put on your Armor of God, because the devils temping hard
Take a stand against the devil, you wont need no body guard
Jesus said stay in the word, Pastor said stay in the word
Markiss said stay in the word, you need to stay in the word
I know you still smoke, but stay in the word
I know you still drink, but stay in the word
I know you have sex, but stay in the word
You still in the club, just stay in the word
Doing drugs, stripping in the club, you totting guns, stay in the word
God will change your life, and turn it around if you stay in the word
If you smoke you can let it go, if you drink you can let it go
Having sex you can let it go, still in the club you can let it go
Doing drugs, stripping in the club, totting guns you can let it go
Jesus Christ gotta a better life for you if you can let it go
If you take this walk with me, we walking right through heavens door
But you have to first be saved, so your name the Lord will know.

THE REASON WHY- Written by O. Hawk, D. Woodard
Get em up, Get em up
Get your hands up to the sky
Raise them high if you know the reason why He had to die
On the cross, see the pain
Theirs the blood, see the stain
Its embedded in my brain, that why i was born again
Get low, Get low
Get low down on your knees
Ask the Lord to help you please
If you want to be set free
Get em up, Get em high
If you know He had to die
If you saved say you saved and you know the reason why

I got my hands up to the sky,
And they wonder and they ponder
and they asking, asking, why
Why I praise Him why I worship, why I'm down on my knees
Saying Father saying Jesus, saying Holy Spirit please
I'm a sinner, not a winner. But through You I could be free
You done died on the cross, and I know it was for me
I was ducking, I was fronting, I was leaning to the back
He bigger than Fat Joe, because He made me lean back
Now I snap, now I wop, I can lean with it rock
I can walk it out for Jesus with a Eastside stomp
Cuz He saved me, He raised me
I could never pay Him back
I just speak the Word of Jesus, while I'm rapping on a track
I ain't worthy, but I'm saved. I'll see heaven at my grave
You can call me Canton Jones, because i gotta stay saved
Get em up, Get em high, you know the reason why
I give Him all the glory, cuz my sins He had to die

Get em up, Get em up
Get your hands up to the sky
Raise them high if you know the reason why He had to die
On the cross, see the pain
Theirs the blood, see the stain
Its embedded in my brain, that why i was born again
Get low, Get low
Get low down on your knees
Ask the Lord to help you please
If you want to be set free
Get em up, Get em high
If you know He had to die
If you saved say you saved and you know the reason why

We on a mission representing gospel wit the flow, representing christian folk
This is how we living, this ain't just so we can do a show
Past days life grey, now Christ life's great
Eagerly anticipate His plan for the next day
He didn't have to choose us to be His speaking tool
He didn't have to choose us to be the one He used
To disrespect and not give credit man ill be a fool
And so i give Him all the glory for the good I do
We try to live our best, even though life's test
Even though pressure comes upon us like the rest
Watching what we say and do, don't want to kill our witness
Vizon hooked up with Obie One, lets get down to business
We gotta operate on more than our senses
Being content with merely living is simply senseless
Get this, simply existing this is not enough
Real living begins wit Jesus Christ. so baby get em up

Knock Down- Written by O. Hawk
I’m a knock down Ludacris

I’m climbing the charts, God placing me higher.

This ain't a diss record you can stop the chit chatter
Cuz Obie ain’t dissing (no) Obie ain’t hating (no)
Obie ain’t listen (no) and Obie ain’t waiting
I’ll just be debating, who to knock down first
It’s not about me, I’m repping God in the verse
This the B.A. Movement, we born again holmes
We coming like the government, invading your homes
On your TV, computer, and your radio box
Drop me acapella, man I still ain’t gonna stop
Reppin God on the block, in the church, or the spot
Jesus walking in the club, now we moving up the charts
I’m a Christian on a mission, Obie One is taking over
A warrior for God, so I’ll die like a soldier
On the battlefield, reaching should till I’m gone
This the #1 song reppin God on the throne

I’m a knock down Jezzy
Knock down Fiddy
Knock down Busta
and Knock down Diddy
I’m climbing the charts, God placing me higher.
I rap 4 Jesus so you know I’m on fire
I’m a knock down Snoop

and Knock down Nas
I’m climbing the charts, God placing me higher.
I rap 4 Jesus so you know I’m on fire

I’m a king homeboy, I know you see me with a crown
I ain’t talking about sex, but you know it’s going down
Some call it Mary J, but you say its Yung Joc
How a Christian rapper take the #1 spot
He ain’t trying to start a beef, because he rising to the top
You can rest on your label, because he standing on the Rock
I ain’t talking bout Jay, but I’m down with Jehovah
They sleeping on they backs, well it’s time to roll over
Holy music taking over, putting Jesus on the charts
God will open up the door, Obie One is just a start
And my name ain’t Game, but I got One Blood
I ain’t talking bout Game, but I was saved by the blood
From the Lord on the Cross, but you find bizarre
That He’s the biggest boss that I’ve seen thus far
If stunting is a habit then get like me
Because I’m down with the unit but its G.O.D

STEADY MOVIN- Written by O. Hawk, S. Clark
We cruising, Steady moving
Not losing, Do you see what God is doing?
So why you fronting, homie!

I’m from Virginia, but I speak that country grammar man
When I talk about Jesus, sometimes they don’t understand
I’m here to break it down, so you can get up with that plan
It’s my testimony, but it’s about a bigger man
J-E-S-U-S-C-H-R-I-S-T
I’m just here to let you know that it was He who saved me
I’m just trying to break the curse, so I’m giving you the facts
I’m not rapping on this beat, I’m preaching to you on the wax
I’m just a nobody trying to tell everybody something
About somebody who can save anybody fronting
If they not born again, you learned how to lose
I’ll teach you how to win, so you can stop having the blues
Through Jesus, don’t you feel the love of God through Jesus
If you’re a Christian you’ll be known as believers
Do you believe us, Satan deceived us
And Jesus coming back to earth to get receivers. Us…Us

We cruising, Steady moving
Not losing, Do you see what God is doing?
So why you fronting, homie!

You will never take my life, you will never take my joy
I was born God’s son, and I’m mommy little boy
We will fight till the end, because I ain’t living in sin
Man I play for Jesus Christ, so my team is gonna win
You don’t scare me with your tempting
Satan almost had me slipping
So I called on Jesus name, and He said Obie you tripping
So I said, Lord your right, because I ain’t losing this fight
Walking out of darkness, because Lord I’m following your light
Like it says in John 3, that God so loved the world
That He gave His only son, and I happen to be one
That will not perish but will have everlasting life
Have some kids, get some dogs, marry a beautiful wife
Maybe not in that order, was baptized by the water
The holy spirits taking over, please don’t stop the recorder
Because people gotta hear these words, the Lord is coming back
Not like Michael, not like Mase, and not like JayZ in black.
He’s back

We cruising, Steady moving
Not losing, Do you see what God is doing?
So why you fronting, homie!

Stop fronting homie, you know that me and Obie only
Want you to know that He’s the one and only that will keep you holy
Keep you from being lonely, oh no no He ain’t phony
Feed you the Word that you deserve, keep you from being boney
Full off His goodness, something you couldn’t resist
Matter of fact, it’s to the max. This as good as it gets
It don’t get no better, even if you getting cheddar
Get some scuba gear, dive down search for sunken treasure
You can get whatever, it don’t get no better
Yard, pound, ounce, etc, greatest love by any measure
And His loves forever, forever ever? Yea forever ever
Alpha and Omega

LET’S TAKE A RIDE- Written by O. Hawk
Let’s take a ride through the block
I’ll show you what’s hot
While we cruising, moving, I’ll show you what’s not
Let’s take a ride through the hood
I’ll show you what’s good
How my people are mistreated and misunderstood
Background:
Let’s take a ride through the spot, so you can see how it go
Let’s take a ride through the block, see why my people don’t grow
Let’s take a ride through the town, so you can see what I see
Let’s take a ride through the hood, I got Jesus with me

Let’s take a ride to the hood, I’m a show you where we kick it at
When the cops come I’m a show you where they hitting at
Black on black crime, black males doing time
Because we killing, shooting, robbing, my people we are dying
By the drive by’s of money, sex, here comes the drugs
Hood rats, and gold diggers, here comes the thugs
They dropping out of school, getting single parent homes
They tearing down the hoods, so it ain’t nothing you own
We want the rims, and clothes, the jewels and the Rolls
Everything we see on TV and videos
Little girls having babies, ain’t no one raising the queens
The fathers not around, ain’t no one raising the kings
We just chasing the cream, were no longer a team
Everybody for themselves, we not living the dream
My ancestors fought just to get us some action
And now it’s our turn, let us show a reaction

Let’s take a ride through the block
I’ll show you what’s hot
While we cruising, moving, I’ll show you what’s not
Let’s take a ride through the hood
I’ll show you what’s good
How my people are mistreated and misunderstood

So I’m on my knees asking God why you make me black
I get my answer, then I wonder why it holds me back
Because racism’s alive, they ain’t concealing it
I know your hearing my struggle, but are you feeling it
There ain’t no man alive, only God is who I fear
So when I look at my society I see it clear
Not just the white man, my own kind is killing here
These are the last days, so I see the end is near
I pray to God that we all get up out the struggle
I know it’s hard, but we all got to flow a hustle
We trying to make it to heaven while living on the ground
We say “We Ballin, Flying High” but on the ground
We always looking for answers, but no one asking questions
We always looking for teachers, but no one teaching lessons
I see us taking the blessing, but we don’t share the wealth
We gotta keep spreading love, it’s not just for ourselves
So when you read the God book, you gotta give Him praise
You gonna need it on the block so go ahead and pray
When you rolling through the hood, look for a better days
Go ahead and say, we need a better way
Jesus Jesus He’s our better way
So while we cruising, God said it’ll be OK
Cuz when he comes back the hood will never be the same
So when you riding through the block, go and yell His name

THE INTERLUDE- Written by O. Hawk
He was crucified
For us He had to die
Just for Him to ride
His name is Jesus
Jesus is alive
The devil is a lie
My savior is alright
His name is Jesus

Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus the carpenter, Jesus the Son of God
The devils just a copier
Man it ain’t no blocking ya, if got Him on your side
Girl it ain’t no blocking ya, if you got Him in your ride
Don’t you know, He’s alright, His love is alright
His grace is alright, His spirit is alright
He died on the cross for people like you and me
The passion of Christ is something you gotta see. My God
Jesus is my Lord, the Savior who died for… all my sins
Amen

A SONG LIKE THIS REVISITED- Written by O. Hawk
A song like this, it made me wanna cry
A song like this, it made me wonder why
A song like this, it made me wanna try
To give your problems to God, and kiss them all goodbye

When I wrote this song, man I was going through a lot
I had pressure on my chest, building up a blood clot
I couldn’t breathe all the burden and problems holding me down
Every time I tried to smile, I was holding a frown
Couldn’t see through the rain, couldn’t see through the storm
I was leaving this world, I was getting it on
I had my bible in my left hand, and God was on my right
My problems took a left turn while God was going right
So that song made me cry, now I know why
I was trying to solve it myself before I said goodbye
But Jesus, my savior and hopeful redeemer
Came and took my problems and changed my demeanor
But it’s still tough, life is still rough
I died and got saved, now I’m giving it up
I worry about my problems that made me cry
After a song like this, man I kissed them all goodbye

A song like this, it made me wanna cry
A song like this, it made me wonder why
A song like this, it made me wanna try
To give your problems to God, and kiss them all goodbye

I still got the lady God said was the one
Satan still sending freaks who just want to have fun
And he makes it real temping, so I do think twice
But then I think about the lady God placed in my life
And we still ain't having sex, its driving me crazy
I'm just keeping it real y'all, its driving me crazy
But I know we ain't married, so I ain't complaining
Man I had to pray about it, so now I'm refraining
From slipping up, getting up, no more trying again
Got me understanding life, after living in sin
Real Life, Real Music, It's My Testimony
There's nothing I couldn't bare that God put on me
I know He cares for me, I know He's there for me
When I'm down on my knees, He answers my prayers for me
I don't worry about my problems that made me cry
After a song like this, girl I kissed them all goodbye

A song like this, it made me wanna cry
A song like this, it made me wonder why
A song like this, it made me wanna try
To give your problems to God, and kiss them all goodbye

My brother's song changed my life, its called Brand New Day
When you give your problems to God, then walk away
So "it's time to let myself go, because I've been down so low low low"
I placed my problems on the floor, floor, floor
So I don't worry know more, more, more
Because I'm soaring, one day I'll leave my job and I'll be touring
You don't blessed my life with this recording
I love you more than
I love you more than my life, you can take that from me
All my material things, my music, my money
I'm giving it all to you, because you paid that cost
You gave me priceless love, when you died on the cross
So I don't worry about the problems that made me cry
After a song like this, man I kissed them all goodbye
On a song like this 1, I kissed them all goodbye

SHE LOVE'S ME- Written by O. Hawk
She love's me God, but I don't believe that
I'm hearing what she is saying, but I'm seeing how she acts
She love's me God, but I don't love her back
She keep on telling me, but I cant say it back

She love's me God, but she calls me out my name
She be fussing, she be cussing, man she driving me insane
She be hitting, she be screaming, always causing me some drama
I don't have no kids, so she not my baby momma
She love's me God, but who can love that
She don't cook, she don't clean, she don't even rub my back
She don't even read the Word so she love to make me fall
She don't even pray for me, Lord I'm waiting for your call

She love's me God, but I don't believe that
I'm hearing what she is saying, but I'm seeing how she acts
She love's me God, but I don't love her back
She keep on telling me, but I cant say it back

I need a virtuous woman to come and sing and a chord
I gotta find a good thing that has some fear for the Lord
When she speaks it's some wisdom, out her mouth is the kindness
I'm like her king Jaffe Joffee, because she calls me Your Highness
She got strength, wear honor, the children calling her bless
She read the Word of God to me, and she pray for the best
She speaking life, not death, she taking care of the home
She don't compare to the rest, she's in a league of her own

Bridge: Now I can see that she love's me
Led by the spirit is where I want to be
I pray to God that He leads me to my soul mate
Help me make my soul wait, I don't want to hesitate
I don't want to have to say

LOVE HURTS, LOVE WORKS- Written by O. Hawk
I love you
You know I love you, you know I (I really love you)
You know I love you, you know I (I really love you)
You know I love you, you know I (I really love you)
I Love You, I Love You, I Love You, I Love You

What is love, what is love Jesus tell me what it is
Because I'm stuck, I'm in a maze, I'm confused on what it is
Gave my heart, gave my soul, gave my soul, gave my mind, I gave it all
If this love is standing tall, what's the reason why I fall
With the rain, comes the storms, hail, lightning, and the thunder
On my knees, talking to you, praying nights because I wonder
Was it me, was it you, was it him, or was it I
I'm a loving type of guy, and I ain't understanding why
Why I gotta feel the pain, mix with sorrow and the hurt
But you said that she is for me so Lord why it didn't work
Want to go back up in them streets, want to go back up in them girls
Want to go back up in the club, want to go back up in the world
I ain't feeling this, and dear Lord I'm trying to keep it real
I'm speaking from the hurt, I'm saying exactly how I feel
Because I made some wrong decision, in my life they call it Karma
So I'm reaping what I sowed, so I'm picking up my armor
Lord I'm sorry for the hurt, girl I'm sorry for the lies
And I'm sorry for being a jerk, all the things hid in disguised
Lord I'm sorry for my past, because I know I said I cheated
Look I'm sorry for the girls that I hurt and got defeated
Because I'm feeling what their feeling, and this feeling isn't great
If this love is just a feeling for that feeling I will wait
So Lord I give her back to you, and I'm coming for your love
I'm sorry for neglecting you, I'm yearning for your love

I Love You, I Love You, I Love You, I Love You

Lord you always have a bigger plan, because you are a bigger man
You can see it when I cant, but I'm thinking that I aint
I want it when I want it, I can see it but it's faint
When I try to get it closer, it keeps backing up away
Like the stars in the sky, they can come and go away
So when I think about this love, I can wait another day
wait another day, wait another day, wait another day, I can wait another day
No I cant! But with your help I can see the bigger picture
I'm in the upper room, I see the man who had the pitcher
If this is the last supper, Lord I got to eat it all
I got a lot up on my plate, but I'm still waiting for your call
waiting for your call, waiting for your call, waiting for your call, Lord I'm waiting for your call
But in the meantime I'll be working on myself
Now I think about it Lord, I need some work up in myself
Because I got an attitude and my mood is always swinging
Plus I hold my feeling in, and let it out just when I'm singing
I got issues, I got problems, theirs some things I need to change
Took the focus off myself, so Lord I'm calling on your name
Love Hurts, Love Works, but you don't know it till it's gone
If you love something let it go, if it comes back then its on
So Lord, I give her back to you, and I'm coming for your love
I'm sorry for neglecting you, I'm yearning for your love

CLEANING OUT ME HEART- Written by O. Hawk
I’m cleaning out my heart
I’m cleaning my heart
Cleaning it all out my heart
I’m clean

I’m in the ER room please take me to the doctor
There’s pain in my heart, so I need to see the doctor
I’m sitting here waiting because I know He’s a healer
Hurt got me praying, so He knows I’m a kneeler
These heart pains hurt, please tell me what I need
My chest and my neck God, I can’t really breathe
It’s heartbreak, heartache, tell me what the heart take
You gotta clean it out, because I can’t let the heart wait
My arteries are clogged, now I’m understanding why
It’s a cardiac arrest, and Lord I don’t want to die
Got to get you to the heart, because I know you’re the blood
Put your hands on me God, all is I need is the Blood
Because I’m living with the stains from the dirt and the mud
God I’m giving you the pains of the hurt and the love
Check my x-rays doc, I need heart surgery
Gotta let you clean it out, so it can stop hurting me

I’m cleaning out my heart
I’m cleaning my heart
Cleaning it all out my heart
I’m clean

God I’m looking for your help because I made a decision
Get the scalpel out because I need the incision
To break these ribs, and flush out my arteries
Open these vessels, take out the part of me
That’s holding up my blessing, and keeping me stressing
The blocked areas, I let the devil keep testing
Clean out my heart, only leave me with your love
I don’t need nothing else, all I need is your love
Clean off the girls, money, sex, and the lies
Deliver me from fear and the lust in my eyes
And Let me love again because the hurt I despise
I’m dealing with the present but I need a surprise
So when you sow me up, God I need a new beginning
Stand by my side, because I need to stop sinning
Take it all away, that’s why I’m asking from the start
I’m in recovery because you cleaned out my heart

Never Knew- Written by O. Hawk
Never knew, that I could love
Never Knew, that I could hug
Never knew, that I would
Fall in love with just you Lord

I never felt your love, I never felt your hug
Was always on my knees, crying to the Lord above
To save me from this sin, can I be born again
I’m losing in this fight, but I really want to win
So I tried and tried, at night I cried and cried
Until I realized, you was always by my side
It must have been my pride, to keep this pain inside
I fell in love with you, so my feeling I can’t hide
I love you, I love you, I love you – that’s right
I worship you and give you glory for saving my life
Now I praise your name, my life is not the same
I never knew and now I know your love took all my pain

Never knew, that I could love
Never Knew, that I could hug
Never knew, that I would
Fall in love with just you Lord

You was always there for me, you would always care for me
You would lend an ear for me
When I called your name, you was near for me
You was there, when joy turned to pain
You was there when sun turned into rain
Eyes heavy, because I was hurt by the stain
Me love again, naw never again
Not until you call my name, Not until you healed my pain
I lied, I stole, I cheated on you. So why you say you love me the same
After I done blocked your calls, I ignored your notes and all
How could you love me, and hug me, like you love me at all
And then I read first John, it said that God is love
So now I love you because showed me what true loving was
So now feel your love, now I feel your hug
Now I know that you’re the only one that I can love

Never knew, that I could love
Never Knew, that I could hug
Never knew, that I would
Fall in love with just you Lord

Bridge: You know I love you
You know I praise you,
You know I trust you
Worship and adore you

I LOVE YOU- Written by: O. Hawk
I love you Lord, your the one I adore
I give praises to you, and worship you more

God this is a letter that I'm writing to you
It's coming straight from my heart, I hope makes it to you
Because I've been down, I've been up, even fell to the side
But I've been blessed with this life, that gave me to ride
It's my body living here, because my spirits with you
Only you really understand, why I love you so
Without your hand or your touch nothing is gonna grow
You give me air to breathe, a mouth to feed, ears to hear, and to see
So why do I keep sinning, why is sin in me
Why cant I only see what you want me to see
I'm only trying to be what you want me to be
So everyday I keep trying, just to stay in the word
I keep my bible right beside me, but don't stay in the word
So Lord I'm coming for your hand, help me stay in the word, GOD

I love you Lord, your the one I adore
I give praises to you, and worship you more

All the time I was crying at the bed or the alter
I was praying for a change and hoping something would alter
Please Pastor can we talk because I'm feeling like Paul
It was sin committing sin, it wasn't just me at all
He said "obie you gone change, just stay in the Word
I done read all of Romans so your story I heard
You feel good after church, then you go home to hell
You gotta change your home life, and let your spirit prevail
You keep asking God for change, but you ain't doing nothing
Yeah you go to church, but really your are fronting"
I made up my mind, I'm starting over today
The Lord shined His light, and told me walk this way
I felt like I just walked out of rehab clinic
While the Lord's looking down on me saying "He did it"
But I cant take the Lord's credit, He's the one I adore
I ain't write this for myself, He's who's this songs for.

UNCONDITIONALLY- Written by O. Hawk, C. Hawk
I'm going to try, to explain why I'm feeling so high high high high
Ain’t no foreign substance that’s got me losing my mind mind mind mind
See I found a new friend and He's always right on time
Oh yes He is yeah
Someone that loves for myself, no matter what I did; and

It feels good to know that I am loved unconditionally
it feels good to know I have someone unconditionally
Jesus is the one for me

See the love of Jesus, came saved me
And made me, to a better man
He took all my sins, and forgot them all
But most of all

It feels good to know that I am loved unconditionally
it feels good to know I have someone unconditionally
Jesus is the one for me

See i was counted out, i was all washed up
Jesus came and cleaned me up
Depression lied and said, that I wasn't going to make it
Then Jesus said my son, you can take it
Because i got your back, give me all your burdens
Wont you let me carry that for you
See there's, there's no need to cry, see my footsteps in the sand
Know that means I'm carrying you

It feels good to know that I am loved unconditionally
It feels good to know I have someone unconditionally
Jesus is the one for me

I've loved by many, loved by few
But when i felt no love, i was loved by you
I was down on my knees, crying Lord please
Where is the love, get the hate off of me
Because everybody loves, but it's under conditions
Before I felt love, I was under convictions
The devil and sin took the most out of me
I had to give it up, because they were closer to me
I called on Jesus, it's plain to see
That He loved me, unconditionally
Through the storms and the rain, through the joys and the pain
If you want the love, you better call that name, Jesus

A Happy Day- Written by:   O.Hawk, A. Moore
I use walk around with all my feelings on my shoulder
I had to let them go the weight was heavy like a boulder
They use to call me hot, but now Im a little colder
I let go of my problems and I tucked them in a folder
Im focused on my future, cuz my past is getting older
They used to have me timid but now Im feelin bolder
I gotta strong team, Steve,Me, Nikki, and Lola
If God was a girl, then you know I gotta hold her ---Down
He took my frown and turned it around ---Now
Problems can no longer surround
I gave my problems to God and left them in the ground
We born again homie, this the B.A. sound
If Christ is the King, Im just a vessel in the town
If Jesus is the pitcher then I'm standing on the mound
I'm bring yall a change like Obama's last speech
Then Im going on vacation, I’m headed to the beach
Esha sing this

I'm gonna sit down in my chair, let the wind blow through my hair
Im not gonna think about, the issues that stress me out
I gotta smile on my face, Ive finished this race
Just gonna lift up my wings, fly away and say
La, la, la,la, la     la la la la la   la la la la la

Chillin at the beach, Got sand all over my feet
Watching the sun fall, excepting no calls
cause this is my day, No drama says Mary J
Life is feeling great, no problems for me today

I'm gonna sit down in my chair, let the wind blow through my hair
Im not gonna think about, the issues that stress me out
I gotta smile on my face, Ive finished this race
Just gonna lift up my wings, fly away and say
La, la, la,la, la     la la la la la   la la la la la

Goodbye to the pain that tried to burn me with flames
Goodbye to the hurt, that tried to make me fall in the dirt
Goodbye to sorrow, like there was no tomorrow
Goodbye to my frown, thank you Jesus for turning them upside down
Goodbye to depression, for I am a new creation
Goodbye to emptiness, cuz my soul is filled with nothing less
Goodbye to greed, oh what a relief
Goodbye to my tears, cuz now I can handle my fears

Real Life, Real Music, It’s My Testimony- 
Written by: O. Hawk, C. Hawk, S. Clark, B. Broussard

Just like everything else, it’s about choices. You can either go Disney or you can be real.
Real with yourself. You can start where you start, you live you like live. It gets better, if you trust God
And do what God wants you to do. But you gotta make some changes, and you gonna make them now.

He’s changed me, Please change me, He’s changed me

It had me down on my knees, while I’m saying Lord please
Take the blood from your hands, wash the sin off of me
This is my testimony

He's changed me, Please change me, He's changed me

I never thought I’d make it past all the women and the !@#
I’m looking through the rearview, I’m moving forward from my past
On my face at the alter saying

He's changed me, Please change me, He's changed me

I was drowning in my sin, living like a FreekieTwinn
In my eyes I was saved, but I wasn’t born again
I got my hands to the Lord, crying

He's changed me, Please change me, He's changed me

I was saved as a boy and every Sunday went to church
I aint put my God first in front of me was a flirt
I was a freek-a-leek, they was loving Obie Cheeks
They was looking at my smile, but they was feeling Obie Cheeks
I aint want to rep the kingdom, I was rapping for the streets
As a young boy brought up in this game of society
Ego boosted up and had this fame rise inside of me
Fast money, fast cars, fast girls was robbing me
Never knew this fast living life would later root in me
I’m rotten like an apple, so these worms are coming out of me
Then God cleaned me out, that’s the reason why I shout

The man that I used to be is now gone
The things that I used to do are no more
Because God is the eraser of my past
Everything I do for Him is gonna last

The highest form of praise, deserved by only one
Divided into 3 Father, Holy Ghost, The Son
No praise is higher, get up out that fire
The fast lane will have your soul burning like a tire
I’m fire fighter, that’s why I fight the fire with Holy water
In order to be a testifier, although I battle fires
The war’s already won, the devil is a lier
It was done by the son, when He rose like the son
And shined on the earth, He provided salvation that you can’t get through works.

You be for real, honest with yourself and honest other people. But here’s how it starts
You have to give your heart to God. You have to open up and trust Him not to hurt you.
And He’s God He made you and loves you, wants to be with you. He gave His son Jesus Christ
The son of the living God. Who sees everything you do, listens to everything you say. 
And loves you even after all that.
