I was born by the river
That my momma cried when my daddy died
Maybe that was the reason
I didn't get the attention
that I was needing to touch
cause i reminded her of him too much.
Couldn't understand what she felt so I hated her, yea
'Till I was old enough to hate myself.
And I felt like a slave down in South Carolina
Cursin' the vagina that gave life to me, oh
I couldn't see what I had the potential to be
'Till i got down on my knees
And begged God to please
Take control of my life today

Chorus
'Cause there's no way,
there's no way, no way, no way
I can make it on my own, (hey)
And no matter how my friends try to console
They could never never know what I go through.
So I turn my heart over completely
To You , yes Lord, I do.

I was born in a hurry
Cause my momma had to be back to work at 8:30
Maybe that was the reason there was always this feeling
Like she was rushin' herself,
She didn't even have the time to spend
Loving her self
Let alone someone else,
So I hated her, yea
Cause I loved her, yea
And I cried, yea!
Like the Ku Klux Klan at the Million Man March
Partially broke my spirit
Partially broke my heart
I couldn't start to be what I had the potential to be
Till i got down on my knees
And begged God to please
Take control of my life today

Chorus
Cause there's no way,
There's no way, no way, no way
I can make it on my own
and no matter how my friends try to console
They could never know what I go through
So I turn my heart over Completely
To You,
Yes Lord, I Do.
