imosi: Passin' Me By lyrics

ok yall here's the lyrics to "Passin' Me By"

lemme know whatcha think...



Verse 1

It's not fair, yeah, I gotta say it to ya, God
Why the wicked live nice and my life is hard
At night I lay on my back and stare at the stars
You said if we are meek the earth would be ours
But it don't seem that way, why am I missin' out?
On the real, Son, tell me what's all this about?
Cats rob and steal, lie and kill to get ahead
Will there be a payoff for me when I am dead?
Yes we thank You, Lord, for our daily bread
Drug dealers eatin' steak and I can barely keep my baby fed
What's goin' on? It's like a Marvin Gaye song
I'm down on my knees and I can pray as long
As I have to, is it in the Book of Matthew?
I thought prayer was a direct line to get at You
So now I ask You, don't Ya children come first?
So I sit here waitin' for one word
man!

but it just seems like

Hook
He keeps on passin' me by
He keeps on passin' me by
He keeps on passin' me by
He keeps on passin' me

Verse 2

By the way, I got something else to say
I really need to get my kids' gifts off layaway
So as I pray today could You do me this favor?
Yeah yeah I know You done a lot, You're my Savior
And my behavior leaves much to be desired
But I thought only the sinners would feed the fire
And we'd acquire blessings and reap the higher
Benefits cuz our nemesis is indeed the Liar
So why the man out drunk and cheatin' on his wife
Gettin' everything that he needin' in his life
While I'm workin' 2 jobs just to make ends meet
They in the suburbs, I'm on a dead end street
And that's not just my address, NO!
That's how my life looks with my mad stress, so
I hate to make demands but I don't understand Your plans
Do You really care for me, or is it just a scam?
Cuz the fall of man that happened in Eden
Got us comin' up short like a hair line receedin'
But You said to turn to You for things we are needin'
I feel so odd how can I come out even?
My water and electric are way past due
And if my rent ain't on time, I'm out with the trash too
So again I ask You, are my prayers unheard?
Cuz I'm still sittin' here waitin' for one word
MAN!!

And it STILL seems like

Hook
He keeps on passin' me by
He keeps on passin' me by
He keeps on passin' me by
He keeps on passin' me

Verse 3

By the way, this is how I used to be
But now I understand the Lord so beautifully
Truthfully, I know that He guides me
And keeps the Holy Spirit movin' inside me
He's better than I am, He never denied me
So I had to learn a lesson like Bruce Almighty
I gave up control and He gladly saved my soul
Prepared for me a place with roads paved in gold
So now when I struggle I can deal with the stress
Because God is the best and I know He keeps me blessed
So I'll pass the test with flyin' colors
And what he gives me, I won't deny my brothaz
He forgave me, so now I give forgiveness
He didn't pass me by so I'm a witness
You can catch me in church on more than just Xmas
And I'm usin' rap music to spread God's Business
The truth of salvation for all who listen
Look at me, a former skeptic-turned-Muslim now a Christian
And my mission is to show God comes first
So I sit here repeatin' one word
Amen!!
