Kirk Franklin – Let It Go lyrics
My mama gave me up when I was four years old
She didn't destroy my body but she killed my soul
Now it's cold 'cause I'm sleeping in my back seat
Understand the Spirit's willing but my flesh is week
Let me speak, I never had a chance to dream
Ten years old finding love in dirty magazines
Miss December you remember I bought you twice
Now I'm thirty plus and still paying the price
Had a sister that I barely knew
Kind of got separated by the age of two
Same mama different daddy so we couldn't fake it
I saw my sister's daddy beat her in the tub naked
Take it serious the demons in the mans mind
The same man on rape charges now he's doing time
Crack followed and like daddy prison thirteen years
Haven't seen her, I guess she's traded tears for fears

Shout Shout
Let it all out
These are the things I can do without
So come on
I talking to you
So Come on

S** was how I made it through
Without someone to teach you love what else is there to do
See where I'm from they call you gay
Say you ain't a man, show them you ain't no punk
Get all the girls you can, a simple plan that still haunts me even now today
Back to seventeen and got a baby on the way
No ged all I see is failure in my eyes, if you're listening and remember I apologize

I was raised falling in the church
Made mistakes and heard the Lord's calling in the church
After service on the parking lot getting high
Wanted to be accepted so bad I was willing to die
Even tried to tell the Pastor, but he couldn't see years of low self-esteem and insecurities
Church taught me how to shout and how to speak in tongues
But preacher, teach me how to live now when the tongue is done, help me


See I'm See I'm
Soul surviver Soul surviver
World surviver
I just wanna let it go
World surviver soul surviver
Just wanna let it go

Jesus please on my knees can't you hear my cry
You said to put it in your hands and Lord I'm really trying
You wasn't lying when you said you reap what you sow
Like that night mama died
Hard to let it go
You adopted me
Cared for me
And changed my name
But I cursed at you
Lied to you
Left you pain
It's not strange I can still see it in my head
To know for hours you were laying there in that bed
If you listening to this record
If it's day or night
If your mama is still living treat your mama right
Don't be like me and let that moment slip away
And be careful cause you can't take back what you say
To my real mama if you listening I'm letting it go
To my father I forgive you 'cause you didn't know
That the pain it was preperation for my destiny
And one more thing Lord let my son be a better man than me
[[Chorus:] 2x]
