08. Could've Been

by Kirk Franklin


It couldíve been me with no clothes, no shoes and no food to eat
It couldíve been me, without Your love
Lord tell me where would I be
It couldíve been

Me in the cold with [everything gone]
No house, no job [outside all alone]
Sitting trying to figure out [where I went wrong]
Can somebody help me [tell me what do I do]

Canít feed my kids need [money for the rent]
Bills after bills but [everythingís spent]
The enemy telling me you [might as well quit and]
With tears in my eyes crying [Lord please get me through]

See itís easy to complain [Ďbout material things]
When you donít have to worry [Ďbout whatever life brings]
But somebody tonight [donít know what they gonna eat]
So I gotta be careful [Ďcause it couldíve been me]

See thatís the reason [I just canít thank You enough]
No matter how hard I try, Jesus I realize

Breakdown : OhÖOh

Vamp 1
Thank You [2x] [then I] couldíve been me
You didnít have to do it, no. Thank You

Vamp 2
Too good to stop now Father
I wanna give You thanks some more
All the things Iíve been through
Now I see Iím better than I was before
When I think about all Youíve done
How Youíve opened up every door
I canít help but say thank You
And if You wanna help me get up on the floor [help me now]
