The Fight of My Life
by Kirk Franklin



 

[Verse 1:]
Oh, superstar
Never drove around in a fancy car
Kids looked at me funny
Momma she had no money but she always told me, "Baby, know who you are"
I say ooh, don't you know
It was hard always wearing my cousin's clothes
Can you hand me down a dream with those hand-me-down jeans?
Thought I'd never make, but I made it y'all, 'cause I had...

[Chorus:]
Jesus
When I had nothing, had to struggle, and was up to no good
Jesus
The reason I'm still breathing is 'cause
Jesus [x3]
It's crazy how you love me even when I don't love you like I should
Jesus [x3]

[Verse 2:]
Oh, look at me
I know I'm now all I'm supposed to be, I'm gonna get it right, didn't get here overnight, so while you're waiting please wait patiently
I say ooh, it's so sweet to know that you were always in love
Thought my game was clever, but no one can play me better than you
You know you always win cause you're

[Chorus:]
Jesus
When I had nothing, had to struggle, and was up to no good
Jesus
The reason I'm still breathing is 'cause
Jesus [x3]
It's crazy how you love me even when I don't love you like I should
Jesus [x3]

[Bridge:]
Oh
When I think about your name I go
Oh
How you took away my pain I go Ooh
Every night at the club
Ain't no wife at the club
That Jesus he be showing me love
They said I wasn't gon' make it Kirk
I know how that sound
It's only by His grace I can say 'look at me now' If you love this joint right here
I want you to call your radio station in the morning
And I want you to tell 'em Hey Mr. DJ
Can you play my favorite song? [Will you play my favorite?]
I heard it say it's gonna get better We gon make it out the hood someday
Hey Mr. DJ
I wanna hear that song about Jesus
I heard my mama crying, I gotta let her know He's gonna wipe her tears away
You are listening to the sound of a brotha who should be dead right now
But I'm so glad God didn't give up on me!
Ain't you glad he didn't give up on you?
What's His name?

[Chorus:]
Jesus
When I had nothing, had to struggle, and was up to no good
Jesus
The reason I'm still breathing is 'cause
Jesus[x3]
It's crazy how you love me even when I don't love you like I should
Jesus[x3]
