Fell for you first day that I met you Never dreamed that I ever could forget you But black and white make a mess When it turn to grey Sunlight came sweepin’ cross the window Rewind to the time when we were so close Got me longin’ for yesterday But Lord You, know me, so well I can be a little punk sometimes But don’t leave me, leave me alone Bust down the door to my heart like it’s Your home Don’t need no keys I’m on my knees Begging You please I’ve gotta settle this thing once and for all You got my heart my soul You can have it all I’m on my knees Beggin’ You please Beggin’ You please, Lord Don’t leave me alone Through the tears, through the pain comes a new day Blown away still amazed You pursue me Ain’t no limit to the way You love Don’t stop Lord I need You like a heartbeat Concrete Rock solid under my feet And You’re callin’ me You’re callin’ me up [Rap Lyric] I said You had me in your arms but I fell through the grasp But yep I had You in my heart but I guess I relapsed Like I’m livin’ for the wrong reasons, through the seasons Tryna fall for you but then they put me on blast It’s like I try to speak my mind because I know that I’m His And yep I try to speak my mind but it don’t fly with them kids Man if I’m not talkin’ bout the newest Nikes or releases They put the mute on me I can’t speak about my Jesus?Here we might be reminded of Carole Kings "Will You Still Love Me, Tomorrow?

Some like to write lists of the qualities before they enter a relationship so as to maintain high standards and to keep it God-centered.
I personally think it’s really important to, because of said reasons, but also so one doesn’t just date or wed for the physical side of it or such.
That’s a big problem, because the message of wooing your boyfriend/girlfriend does NOT mirror our relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. That even when we’ve been regenerated by Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ, our flesh is still corrupt and we still sin.
Our flesh is week, but through faith in Christ Jesus we hold onto the Promise of the forgiveness of sin and being resurrected into eternal life as heirs and joint heirs with Christ by His Blood. Instead, this song presents the notion that we need to woo God not to leave us, like the boy/girlfriend who has finally “had it” with us and is threatening to leave.
