New Found Glory Lyrics
Originally by Arrested Development
Lord I've really been real stressed Down and out, losing ground Although I am black and proud Problems got me pessimistic Brothers and sisters keep messing up Why does it have to be so damn tuff? I don't know where I can go To let these ghosts out of my skull My grandmas past, my brothers gone I never at once felt so alone I know you're supposed to be my steering wheel Not just my spare tire (home) But lord I ask you (home) To be my guiding force and truth (home) For some strange reason it had to be (home) He guided me to Tennessee (home) Take me to another place Take me to another land Make me forget all that hurts me Let me understand your plan Lord it's obvious we got a relationship Talking to each other every night and day Although you're superior over me We talk to each other in a friendship way Then outta nowhere you tell me to break Outta the country and into more country Past Dyesburg into Ripley Where the ghost of childhood haunts me Walk the roads my forefathers walked Climbed the trees my forefathers hung from Ask those trees for all their wisdom They tell me my ears are so young (home) Go back to from whence you came (home) My family tree my family name (home) For some strange reason it had to be (home) He guided me to Tennessee (home) Now I see the importance of history Why people be in the mess that they be Many journeys to freedom made in vain By brothers on the corner playing ghetto games I ask you lord why you enlightened me Without the enlightenment of all my folks He said cuz I set myself on a quest for truth And he was there to quench my thirst But I am still thirsty... The lord allowed me to drink some more He said what I am searching for are The answers to all which are in front of me The ultimate truth started to get blurry For some strange reason it had to be It was all a dream about Tennessee
