Don't you listen to the never
Keep praying for rain
Dancing for rain little girl by the drain
Motherless child, rescue rescue
Don't you listen to the never
Keep praying for rain
Dancing for rain with your doll by the drain
Motherless child, rescue rescue

Keep your ear to the shell, keep your ear to the shell
Stay on the path that leads to the well
There are many take the one that leads to the well, rescue rescue
Keep your ear to the shell, ear to the shell

Motherless child does thou believe
That thine afflictions have caused us to grieve?
Motherless child angels have closed
Their eyes, thou wast thrown away and exposed

Don't you listen to the never
Keep praying for rain
Dancing for rain, no sweet for the pain of a motherless child
Rescue rescue

Keep your ear to the shell, keep your ear to the shell
Stay on the path that leads to the well
There are many, take the one that leads to the well

Motherless child, follow my voice
And I shall give thee great cause to rejoice
Motherless child, be of good cheer
My arm is reached out, I am here
I'll crush every doubt and every fear
Clothesline the shame and you will answer to the rain

Wonderful wonderful, wonderful wonderful
Motherless child I am with thee, thou wast never alone
Maybe I'm dirty, maybe I'm unworthy
Motherless child, can you hear me? I will give you a home
Wonderful wonderful, wonderful wonderful
Motherless child I am with thee, thou wast never alone
Maybe I'm dirty, maybe I'm unworthy
Motherless child, can you hear me? I will give you a home
You were never alone

I know the score like the back of my hand
Them other boys, I don't give a damn
They kiss on the ring, I carry the crown
Nothing can break, nothing can break me down
Don't need no advice, I got a plan
I know the direction, the lay of the land
I know the score like the back of my hand
Them other boys, I don't give a damn

I'm the man, come round
Nothing can break, nothing can break me down
I'm the man, come round and
Nothing can break, you can't break me down

I got gas in the tank
I got money in the bank
I got news for you baby, you're looking at the man
I got skin in the game
I got a household name
I got news for you baby, you're looking at the man

When it comes to Friday, I always earn
But don't try to teach me, I got nothing to learn
'Cause baby I'm gifted
You see what I mean?
USDA certified lean

I'm the man, come round
Nothing can break, you can't break me down

I got gas in the tank
I got money in the bank
I got news for you baby, you're looking at the man
I got skin in the game
I don't feel no pain
I got news for you baby, you're looking at the man

Who's the man? Who's the man?
I'm the man, I'm the man
Who's the man with the plan?
I'm the man

Who's the man? Who's the man?
I'm the man, I'm the man
Who's the man with the plan?
I'm the man

I'm the man
I'm the man

I got gas in the tank
I got money in the bank
I got news for you baby, you're looking at the man
I got skin in the game
Headed to the hall of fame
I got news for you baby, you're looking at the man

Right hand to God
First in command
My testimony, but I take the stand

Who's the man? Who's the man?
I'm the man, I'm the man
Who's the man with the plan?
I'm the man

Who's the man? Who's the man?
I'm the man, I'm the man
Who's the man with the plan?
I'm the man

I don't give a damn
I'm the man

Don't give up on me
'Cause I'm just in a rut
I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

Can't keep my mind off of every little wrong
I see the mouths are open but I can't hear the song
I've done my best to fill 'em
But the cracks are starting to spread
Hey, I won't blame you baby
Go on, turn your head

But don't give up on me
'Cause I'm just in a rut
I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

I can't keep pretending this next stop isn't mine
The truth is on the table, and someone's gotta sign
I've done my best defending
But the punches are starting to land
I'm sliding into something
You won't understand

Don't give up on me
'Cause I'm just in a rut
I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

But don't give up on me
'Cause I'm just in a rut
I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up

So I'm handing you a memory
I hope you understand
That steadily reminds you
Of who I really am

This city's always breathing
I wish that it would die
The king rags and the bachelors
The fever for the velvet rope
The money from my mother's men
I'm not like her, you're not like them

I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb
I'll climb and I'll climb

Oh but don't you give up on me (don't you give up, don't you give up)
Don't you give up on me (don't you give up, don't you give up)
Don't you give up on me (I'll climb and I'll climb)
Don't you give up on me (I'll climb and I'll climb)

I didn't see this coming, I admit it
But if you think I'll buckle forget it
I told you that I'd be the one
I'll be there in the life to come

You think I lost my vision but I didn't
It sounds like heaven but it isn't
Through fields of amber we will run
Somewhere in the life to come

This is not a shakedown
Let go of the blame
Have a little faith in me, girl
Just dropkick the shame
Uncover your face, girl
Let go of the blame
Have a little faith in me
Just dropkick the shame

Call my name
Call my name
If you call my name
I will run whether or not it's tonight
Or the life to come
Or the life to come

I know sometimes you think that I regret it
But I don't remember stumbling when I said it
I told you that I'd be the one
I was talking about the life to come

I know it ain't a cakewalk (I'm not gonna back down)
Let go of the blame (let go of the blame)
Have a little faith in me, girl
Just dropkick the shame

If you call my name
I will run whether or not it's tonight
Or the life to come
Or the life to come

If you call my name
I will run whether or not it's tonight
Or the life to come
Or the life to come

Or the life to come
If you call my name
If you call my name
I will run whether or not it's tonight
Or the life to come
Or the life to come

This is not a shakedown (this is not a shakedown)
Let go of the blame (let go of the blame)
Have a little faith in me, girl (have a little faith in me)
Just dropkick the shame (dropkick the shame)

What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Are your excuses any better than your senator's?
He held a conference and his wife was standing by his side
He did her dirty but no-one died

I saw Sonny Liston on the street last night
Black-fisted and strong singing Redemption Song
He motioned me to the sky
I heard heaven and thunder cry

Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
You know you're not the only one
And don't look back, just run for cover

What are you waiting for, a kiss or an apology?
You think by now you'd have an A in toxicology
It's hard to pack the car when all you do is shame us
It's even harder when the dirtbag's famous

I saw my mother on the street last night
All pretty and strong, singing 'The Road Is Long'
I said 'momma I know you've tried'
But she fell on her knees and cried

Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
I know you're not the only one
Don't look back, just run for cover

And there was nothing she wouldn't give
Just to trust him with her nightmares, with her dreams
She's running
She's running
Just to trust him
He got a big smile, he's fake news
Just run for cover, you've got nothing left to lose

Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don't look back
You gotta run for cover
Don't be afraid of the fear, that's a played out trap, man
You know you're not the only one
And don't look back, just run for cover
Run
Run
(You know you're not the only)
Run for cover

Looking out the window out on the street
I don't know what happened, I'm out on my feet
I hear my mother calling my name
I still come running but I ain't the same

You can change the channel
Take the phone off the hook
Avoid the headline but you'll never grow up baby if you don't look

When I saw him go down
Felt like somebody lied
I had to hold my breath till the coast was clear
When I saw him go down
Felt like somebody lied
I had to close my eyes just to stop the tears

You're used to winning, how did it feel?
Did you hear the screaming? It was unreal
What did they pay you? What did it cost?
How long did it take you to know that you lost?

You can hit the shower
Fill the place up with steam
And close the curtains
But when you woke up, man, it wasn't no dream

When I saw him go down
Felt like somebody lied
I had to hold my breath till the coast was clear
When I saw him go down
Felt like somebody lied
I had to close my eyes, close my eyes
Just to stop the tears

Looking out the window out on the street
My boy and his mother and I think of me
I'm feeling the slip again, I don't wanna fall
You said it was nothing
But maybe you're wrong

'Cause when I saw him go down
Felt like somebody lied
I had to hold my breath till the coast was clear
When I saw him go down
Felt like somebody lied
I had to close my eyes just to stop the tear
Just to stop the tears
Just to stop the tears

You got the will of a wild
A wild bird
You got the faith of a child
Before the world gets in

You got some kind of love
You got some kind of love
(Some kind)

You got the soul of a truck
On a long distance haul
You got the grace of the storm
In the desert

You got some kind of love (some kind of love)
You got some kind of love

You got some kind
You got some kind
You got some kind
You got some kind of love

You got some kind
You got some kind
You got some kind
You got some kind of love

You got some kind
You got some kind
You got some kind
You got some kind of love

Can't do this alone
We need you at home
There's so much to see
We know that you're strong

Can't do this alone
We need you at home
There's so much to see
We know that you're strong
Can't do this alone

We're building up a kingdom
We pray it never falls
I can lose my temper
You can put up walls

And I hate when it gets serious
It's like we're going blind
Take the needle off the record
I can't stand another chorus
About Juliet's control over mystified mankind

But I can't get you out of my mind
To get you out of my bed
To get you out of my heart
And my head

Oh, we're falling
Oh, we're falling

Storm the gates of Graceland
To make you realize
Went back-to-back with Springsteen
You turned and rolled your eyes
So I told you about McCartney
That's a heavy name to drop
You say you don't need confirmation
But I don't know if I can stop

'Cause I can't get you out of my mind
To get you out of my bed
To get you out of my heart
And my head

Oh, we're falling
Oh, we're falling

Oh, we're falling
Oh, we're falling

Oh, we're falling
Oh, we're falling

And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meet in the house, behold
Many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples
And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples
Why eateth your Master with publicans and senators?
But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them
They that be whole need not a physician
But they that are sick

I walked into town with a message for my old man
I got the last two chapters of Matthew in my hand
Steve's painting houses while Bobby went and gone insane
They buried my sister but daddy, he stayed the same

Follow the sun out of the night
Brother just lean into the light
You wanna be sure, I'll give you sight
Brother just lean in to the light

His hands still shake when the ponies break out on the track
(Here comes the calling)
His feet still quick when they say they want their money back
(Here comes the calling)
But daddy did you think that you could outrun the Holy Ghost?
(Here comes the calling)
Lie, cheat, steal, hope they fix it all up in post

The book will be open
In front of the judge
Unquenchable fire
Keys to the kingdom

Follow the sun out of the night
Brother just lean into the light
(Just lean into the light)
You wanna be sure, I'll give you sight
Brother just lean into the light
(Just lean into the light)
The lord of the kingdom's burning bright
Brother just lean into the light
(Lean in)

You heard that the master was travelin' through
But what would you do if he walked in the room?
Pray to the left, pray to the right
Brother just lean in
Brother just lean into the light

Follow the sun out of the night
Brother just lean into the light
(Just lean into the light)
You wanna be sure, I'll give you sight
Brother just lean in to the light
(Just lean into the light)
The lord of the kingdom's burning bright
Brother just lean into the light
(Just lean into the light)
Follow the sun out of the night
Brother just lean into the light

(Here comes the calling)
(Here comes the calling)

Have all the songs been written?
Have all the truths been told?
Has all the gas been siphoned?
Do the plains still carry gold?
Has every ship gone sailing?
Has every heart gone blue?

Have all the songs been written?
Oh, I just need one
To get through to you, I
Just need one more

Have all the songs been written?
Have all your needs been met?
Have all these years been worth it?
Or am I the great regret?

Has every ship gone sailing?
Has every heart gone blue?
Have all the songs been written?

Oh, I just need one
To get through to you, I
Just need one more, to get through to you, I
Can't take back, what I've done wrong, I
Just need one more

When the train returns to the rails
When the ship is back in the harbor
I will make you happy again
I can see a life for you and I

Just need one more, to get through to you, I
Just need one more, to get through to you, I
Can't take back, what I've done wrong, I
Just need one more
