I met him at the state store he was tryna holla
I aint care If he was old enough to be my father
I knew his wife and went to school wit his daughter
He was a boss that I knew went harder
Gave me my first taste bud I had to take it farther
I mean I had to go harder
I started callin up his crib just to get him
And I aint even care I asked his wife if she was wit him
Came home late and he got into a fight and he called me that night
He said he never want to see me on the block
I said I don't need you but I need that rock

I couldn't take it so I had to go see him
Stole my momma car and drove around all evening
And when I found him I thought that he would lace me
I aint got no money but you know I'll let you taste me
He pulled his gun out and told me I was stupid
I started crying, prayed to god he wouldn't do it

Help please, lord I plead, just save me
(If you're really there)
Hear a sinners prayer... Hey
(This is my redemption song) redemption... Song

I met this chick in philly who said she like to sang
I aint mean it but I said it's good to have a dream
My daddy used to beat my momma I saw it everyday
So when I got with her I did the same thing
He always used to say you gotta keep a bitch tamed
So I never let her sing
And every chance I got I told her if she ever left me
I'll kill her, that's how I made her respect me
Forget me, never
Made her believe it don't get no better

I told her it was crazy out there

She said she don't care but she can't stay here
The last time I hit her she went into the kitchen
I aint pay her no mind, aint even kno that she was missing
She came out bleeding wit her eyes all black
I looked and saw she had something behind her back
She pulled a gun out and told me I was stupid
Dropped to my knees and prayed to god she wouldn't do it

Help please, Lord I plead, just save me
(If you're really there)
Hear a sinners prayer... Hey
(This is my redemption song) Redemption... Song

I really need... To know if you are there
If you could just, just hear a sinners prayer
You could remake me (remake me)
Ohhh just save me (just save me)
I promise if you get me through this I'll change
I need to be set free

Help please, Lord I plead, just save me
(If you're really there)
Hear a sinners prayer... Hey
(This is my redemption song) Redemption... Song

Forgive me father (forgive me father)
I know I've done wrong (I know I've done wrong)
But I have nowhere else to turn (but I have no where else to turn)
So hear me (so hear me)
And save me (and save me)

Oh oh oh oh oh...
If you're really there
