Raphael Saadiq – Different Times lyrics

I been in some hard times, I seen a lot of good times
But everyday I count my blessings this way
'Cuz I know that everyday's a different day
My friends can change but his will never change

And I knew there would be some time
When I would second guess my mind

So I kept on walking, kept on striving
Kept on singing
And guess who showed up?

As I walked down the street one day
I thought I heard a brother say
“Living in bad conditions
Can make you feel like no one”

As long as I, that's why I always try
And do my best to search inside
But I knew there would be a day
When I had to look the other way

So I close my eyes and kept on pushin'
I just kept looking
And guess who showed up?

I told myself one day to fall on my knees and pray
And never listen to no one if they can't be true to you
No one should spend precious time living for material love
His money, no money, no money, can make me happy
Now it looks a lot clearer outside, 'cuz I'm using my eyes

I close my eyes and kept on pushing
I just stopped looking
And guess who showed up?

My friend won't let you down
He's always been around
That's one thing I know for sure
Even when I'm wrong, he's right at my door
He'll never ignore

Yes, I got a lotta things to say
I can't say them in all one day
I'll take no credit for the blessings that
He's given to me,

Without him I know that Saadiq could never, ever, ever be
When I thought it couldn't get no better
Just when I thought it was almost over

Oh no, I close my eyes and kept on pushin'
I just kept looking
And guess who showed up?

I close my eyes and kept on pushin'
I just kept looking
And guess who showed up?
I told myself all day
To fall on my knees and pray

I told myself all day
To fall on my knees and pray
I close my eyes and kept on pushin'
I just kept looking
And guess who showed up?

I close my eyes and kept on pushin'
I just kept looking
And guess who showed up?

I close my eyes and kept on pushin'
I just kept looking
And guess who showed up?

My friend won't let you down
He's always been around
That's one thing I know for sure
Even when I'm wrong, he's right at my door
