The Convo Lyrics

Artist: DMX
Album: It's Dark And Hell Is Hot

You tell me that there's love here
But to me it's blatant
Nothin' but all the blood here
I'm dealing wit' Satan
Plus wit' all the hatin'
It's hard to keep peace
Thou shalt not steal
But I will to eat
I tried doin' good
But good's not too good for me
Why you chose the hood for me?
Me I'm aight
I just had to work hard at it
Went to grandma for the answer
And she told me that God had it
So now here I am
Confused and full of questions
Am I born to lose?
Or is this just a lesson?
And who is gonna chose?
When it gets turned around
And will it be
Layin' in my own blood and on the ground
My child
I watched you grow up and I been there
Even at those times you least expected it
I was there
And look at what I've given you
A talent to rhyme
I may not come when you call
But I'm always on time
Somebody's knockin'
Should I let 'em in?
Lord we're just startin'
But where will it end?
But when the funds are low
The guns'll blow
Lookin' for that one that owe
Make 'im run that dough
Put down the guns and write a new rhyme
You'll get it all in due time
You'll do fine, just have faith
'Cuz you mine
When you shine
It's gon' be a sight to behold
So don't fight to be old
Or lose sight when it's cold
See that light down the road
It's gon' guied you there
2 sets of footprints
I was right beside you there
But what about them times I only saw 1?
Those were the times when I was under the gun
It was then I carried you my son
Led you to safety
It just wasn't yo' time to face me
A yo a few of them times
I thought you would erase me
And all you did was embrace me
Preprared me for the worst
Offered me eternal life
Scared me wit' the hearse
And the curse, turned to grace
When I hurt, show the faith
No more runnin', slidin'
In the dirt 'cuz I'm safe
Chorus X2
So if I'm yo' man
I'm in yo' hands
What's yo' plan?
Never had a friend
'Cuz you couldn't trust yo' man
Learned to stand before I crawled
Things were twisted
And if you showed me anything at all
Then I missed it
Looked the wrong way
I've done some wrong things
Kept the bad attitude
But that's what wrong brings
And now you mean to tell me
That after all this time
It was you that kept the dog
>From goin' out of his mind
It was you that breathed life
Into my lungs when I was born
And it was you that let me know
What was right from what was wrong
And it was you that let me do
What I knew could be done
And it was you that gave me a good wife
And a beautiful son
And it's been you speakin' to me
Inside my mind
And it's been you who has forgiven
Time after time
And it was you who opened my eyes
So I could see
It was you that shined yo' light on me
