Psalms 23 Lyrics

by India Arie

I've seen money come between my best friend and me
I've seen old friend become new enemies
I've been through a couple of litigations
I've been through character assassination

They try to put this stick in between my wheels
But they can't stop my motivation, nothing will
Though I walk through the valley
Where the shadow of death is
I fear no evil 'cause I'm protected

No weapon formed against me shall prosper
'Cause I'm walking with the Heavenly Father
And I do believe that I'm gonna prosper
'Cause I'm walking with the prayers of my mother

You won't get the best of me
Even though you broke my heart
I'm gon' pick up the pieces
You won't get the best of me
Even though you broke my heart
I'm gon' pick up the pieces

I was thinking, maybe this isn't the life for me
I was thinking, maybe I should leave the music industry
I've been betrayed by the people I've trusted
I've been, oh, seriously disgusted

They try to put this stick in between my wheels
But they can't stop my motivation, nothing will
Though I walk through the valley
Where the shadow of death is
I fear no evil 'cause I'm protected

No weapon formed against me shall prosper
'Cause I'm walking with the Heavenly Father
And I do believe that I'm gonna prosper
'Cause I'm walking with the prayers of my mother

You won't get the best of me
Even though you got my money
I'm gon' pick up the pieces
You won't get the best of me
Even though you got my money
I'm gon' pick up the pieces

You can't get the best of me 'cause of my destiny
Not to be less than me but to be more
So, don't question me, I came and I conquered
I soared to new heights and still I explored

In my fight to survive, Lyte is too right
Keep my eyes on new sights, I continue to plight
So, when you try to hurting me, even deserting me
Know that I am designed to overcome adversity

Want to bring out the worst in me, it won't happen
'Cause I take responsibility for my actions
My tenacity, well it has to be everlasting
'Cause even when it comes to backstabber's, I'm laughing

You won't get the best of me
Even though you broke my heart
I'm gon' pick up the pieces
You won't get the best of me
Even though you got my money
I'm gon' pick up the pieces

You won't get the best of me
Even though you broke my heart
I'm gon' pick up the pieces
You won't get the best of me
Even though you got my money
I'm gon' pick up the pieces

You won't get the best of me
Because by the grace of God
I'm gon' pick up the pieces
You won't get the best of me
Because by the grace of God
I'm gon' pick up the pieces

You won't get the best of me
Because by the grace of God
I'm gon' pick up the pieces
You won't get the best of me
Because by the grace of God
I'm gon' pick up the pieces
