I was stupid.
Really stupid.
Something told me deep inside bet not do it.
What a dummy!
Such a dummy... to let some mess I shouldn't did take you from me.
Girl if I could take it back
It'd be so back.
I'd be such an angel, you'd think that me and jesus was cool... like that
Just like that, everything between us be good.
(Hook)
Girl I know I what I should have done.
Should have walked away the moment that I saw her comin
But I blew it
Really blew it and lost the only girl I love.
(Chorus)
Dear god if you listenin now
I need you do a thing for me.
You see my baby, she done up and walked out
I need you bring her back to me.
I know that I was wrong, I was guilty in sin
Probably not priorities
But dear god if you listening now
Down here
By you
Beggin
Crying
Somebody need to pray for me

(Mmhm ) 3x
Dear god if you listening
(Mmhm) 3x

Though I was something
Really something
In the end, who knew I'd end up with nothing?
I was frontin
Truly frontin
Girl I really can't be mad I had it comin
Guess if I was half the man
I know I am
I would be so good that even Oprah be jealous of you
It's like that
Yeah, like that
Everything between us be good
(Hook)
Girl I know I what I should have done.
Should have walked away the moment that I saw her comin
But I blew it
Really blew it and lost the only girl I love.
(Chorus)
Dear god if you listenin now
I need you do a thing for me.
You see my baby, she done up and walked out
I need you bring her back to me.
I know that I was wrong, I was guilty in sin
Probably not priorities
But dear god if you listening now
I'm down here
Dying
Beggin
Crying
Somebody oughta to pray for me

I'm makin you this promise right now
If you can do this one thing for me
I'll be the man that you want
I'll be the man that you need
Church every Sunday
Prayers every Monday
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Just bring my baby back to me.

(Chorus)
Dear god if you listenin now
I need you do a thing for me.
You see my baby, she done up and walked out
I need you bring her back to me.
I know that I was wrong, I was guilty in sin
Probably not priorities
But dear god if you listening now
I'm down here
Dying
Beggin
Crying
Somebody oughta to pray for me

    I think what anthony is trying to say here is the fact that we take love for granted most of the time. Jst by the little things we tend to take it for granted but yet towards the end he proves that if you were mearnt to be you will find a way back to each other

    This is not just any song, it's a prayer on it's own. This song is about a man who accepted his mistakes and he doesn't ask help from a friend, he's asking he creater (god) because no one who bring him back beside almighty god.

    Man realizes it wasn't worth his ego to be with another female for instant pleasure and lose the only woman he ever really loved. He's asking god to help him because he knows that the one god has sent for him has left and has no intentions of ever coming back. He knows he will have to live with the punishment of going threw life without the one who will truly fulfill his every need.

    This song is so powerful. This is a man that knows what he want and truly sorry for his misdoings. If giving the chance he would do better and not make that same mistake over again.
