R KELLY - Heaven I Need A Hug

rate me

Dear mama, you wouldn't believe what I'm goin' through

But still I got my head up just like I promised you

Ever since you left your baby boy's been dealin with

problem after problem, tell me what am I supposed to do

See, I get lost sometimes, don't understand this place

Look in the mirror sometimes and see a troubled face

And then my tears roll down and hit the sink

Then I hold my head up high, I hope the Man upstairs can hear my cry

All these questions deep inside my mind

Like, if Jesus loved me, why'd he leave my side, mama

I'm still tryin to get the answer why

You were young, 45, and you had to die

I'm always tryin' to help people out

And it's them same people tryin' to take food out my mouth

(Fo' real though) It seems like the more money I make

(Fo' real though) The more drama y'all try to create

(Fo' real though) The more I try to move into the positive

(Fo' real though) The more y'all don't wanna let me live

When will you realize that I don't owe you nothin'

Need to get up off your butt and go get your own somethin'

I'm pullin on my hair to keep from snappin' off

Who's right up in my camp and be yappin' off

Somebody out there please pray what I'm talkin' 'bout

Still young tryin' to figure it out

Heaven, I need a hug

Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug

Feelin' like a change of heart

And all I really need is a sign or a word from God

So shower down on me, wet me with your love

I need you to take me and lift me up, oh yeah

I gave thirteen years of my life to this industry

Hit song or not, I've given all of me

You smile in my face and tell me that you love

But then before you know the truth, you're so quick to judge me

That's alright, go ahead, keep talkin'

Cause, cause I'mma hold my head up high and keep walkin

And reach for the sky, focus on the plan

Rescue the ghetto with this paper and pen

And this is for the homies that we lost

Yo', we cannot forget y'all, so the hats come off

We pour a little liquor out for the memory

I know y'all up there sittin' on chrome in them pearly streets

The street survivors, be careful, stay alive

I'm prayin' for your families, I hope you pray for mine

(Fo' real though) Used to be a time you wished me well

(Fo' real though) It hurts to know you wanna see me fail

(Fo' real though) And don't forget I kept you out of jail

(Fo' real though) Where was my arms when you needed to be held

They turn they backs on you, who was they're believin'

Who said your troubles were only for a season

In church together tryin' to pick up all the pieces

And now you betray me, I bind you in the name of Jesus

somebody please pray on what I'm talkin' 'bout

Still young tryin' to figure it all out

Heaven, I need a hug

Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug

Feelin' like a change of heart

And all I really need is a sign or a word from God

(Please shower down)

So shower down on me, wet me with your love (Yeah)

I need you to take me and lift me up, (Oh...oh...yeah,yeah,yeah)

Man I tell you it's enough to make you wanna give it up

Thank God for my fans 'cause through it all they showed me love

To my sister and two brothers

Tell me why can't we just try to get along with one another

Instead of hurtin' one another, fightin' one another

Man, I pray to God He get my family back together

Let me see what I wanna see, just to blind me

All of these luxuries, wine and dine me

And then you push me out in front to get behind me

Then you set me up by blessin' me to bind me

I'm a grown man with kids now, stakes are higher

Gotta go to church now to avoid the fire

Frankly, y'all to keep it real I'm just tired

Have dreams of bein' dead, but the devil is alive

(Fo' real though) Church folks, you need to stop judgin'

(Fo' real though) Or you will be the first to be judged

(Fo' real though) And women stop dependin' on us men

(Fo' real though) And start dependin' on the Man above, feel me

And as for Robert, here's what I need to do

Get rid of dem' clowns and get myself a whole 'nother crew

Media, do your job

But please just don't make my job so hard

Somebody please pray on what I'm talkin' 'bout

I'm still young tryin' to figure it all out

Heaven, I need a hug

Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug

Feelin' like a change of heart

And all I really need is a sign or a word from God

So shower down on me (Shower down on me now), wet me with your love

I need you to take me (please) and lift me up, yeah, yeah,

(Said I'm callin' on heaven)

Heaven, I need a hug

Is there anybody out there willin' to embrace a thug

(Embrace me)

Feelin' like a change of heart

And all I really need is a sign or a word from God

So shower down on me, wet me with your love

I need you to take me and lift me up (Lift me up), yeah,yeah,(Heaven I need)
