America Is Still Standing !!!!




Play this song and read the words for encouragement and healing in these tough times..
I lived it...

I been down/ I been knocked to the ground/ I been held to the ground/
where my friends at now?/ I gave and I gave/I was raised in the days/
You make it to the top you show your people the way/
so from the top of the chart man/I gave from the heart man/
to get you out the hood and get your own apartment/
it was all based on a Dream that I had/deep in the past/
the Dream that He had/ some time it feels like I'm trapped in hell/
like murder is the case and I got no bail/
I used to walk the water but I turned and I drowned/
they found me at the bottom with a pain in my frown/
with Angels all around me holding me down/
Praying this is what he needs in his life right now/
No need to fight it I'ma go with the plan/
then God Breathed on me and told me to stand and I'm Standing/

My life was good/it was better than good/
I was gettin' how I live and givin' back to my hood/
then came a storm it blew away my ends/it blew away my friends/
and I'm startin' all over again/
you couldn't see my tears cause the rain was fallin'/
you couldn't see the hurt but my heart was ballin'/
I was knocked down while I was on my feet/
them dark side riders feared the Hope in me/
to God be the Glory He the one that made me/
evils all around me but it can't shake me/
they thought I was done, finished , gone and dead/
then God Breathed on me and told me to stand/
and I'm Standing/


gas is to high/we can't afford to fly/
the block is off the hook we these homicides/
she had a little baby but the baby did die/
she was only fifteen the baby's daddy forty-five/
every single night she held that child with pride/
but that poor baby never saw day light/

for twenty-five years we been in this house/
in ninety more days they say we gotta get out/
what we gone do?/ tell us how to survive/
I got four kids and one coming is five/
You grab your family and hold'em by the hand/
My God Breathe on them and help'em to Stand and you Standing/
