I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' but you ain't gon' win
I hear you knockin', I hear you knockin'
I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knockin'

Workin' day and night
Gotta get up and pay my bills
People want what they want
They don't care about how you feel

You ain't gon' get me today
You better move out of my way
I got a whole lot to live for
Don't wanna hear the blues today

Economy down, said news
'Cause we bought the war
Change comes like the wind
Now I know what hope is for

I see the sun on my face and you won't hear me complain
Hey, 'cause I can't let the dark days
Bring me down, got a lot of things to say
Don't be knockin' at my door

I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' but you ain't gon' win
I hear you knockin', I hear you knockin'
I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knockin'

I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' but you ain't gon' win
I hear you knockin', I hear you knockin'
I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knockin'

People always usin' other people
Tryin' to get ahead
Runnin' after the light
Never thinkin' about they said

Hey, what's the matter with you?
You need to watch what you do
Hey, you got to get your head straight
Live your life and do what He told you to do

Early Sunday mornin'
Preacher talkin' 'bout savin' souls
He said, "I don't have all the answers
I'm just here to try to let you know"

Every time that you pray a blessin' comes right away
Don't let the hard times take your spirit
Move the devil away
Don't be knockin' at my door

I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' but you ain't gon' win
I hear you knockin', I hear you knockin'
I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knockin'

I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' but you ain't gon' win
I hear you knockin', I hear you knockin'
I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knockin'

Don't be knockin' at my door

I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' but you ain't gon' win
I hear you knockin', I hear you knockin'
I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knockin'

I hear you knockin' but you can't come in
I hear you knockin' but you ain't gon' win
I hear you knockin', I hear you knockin'
I hear you knock, knock, knock, knock, knockin'
