      Kirk Franklin - Let it go Música y Letra

      My mama gave me up when I was four years old
      She didn't destroy my body but she killed my soul
      Now it's cold 'cause I'm sleeping in my back seat
      Understand the spirit's willing but my flesh is weak
      (let him speak) let me speak, I never had a chance to dream
      Ten years old finding love in dirty magazines
      Ms. December you remember I bought you twice
      Now I'm thirty plus and still paying the price
      Had a sister that I barely knew
      Kind of got separated by the age of two
      Same mama different daddy so we couldn't fake it
      I saw my sister's daddy beat her in the tub naked
      Take it serious the demons in the man's mind
      The same daddy with rape charges now he's doing time
      Crack followed and like daddy prison thirteen years
      Haven't her but she's traded tears for fears
      
      [Chorus]
      Shout. Shout
      Let it all out
      These are the things I can do without
      So come on
      I'm talking to you
      So come on
      
      Sex was how I made it through
      Without someone to teach you love what else is there to do?
      So where I'm from they call you gay and say you ain't a man
      Show them you ain't no punk
      Get all the girls you can
      A simple plan that still haunts me even now today
      Back to seventeen and got a baby on the way
      NO G.E.D. all I see is failure in my eyes
      If you listening then remember I apologize
      I was raised falling in the church
      Made mistakes heard the Lord's calling in the church
      After service on the parking lot getting high
      Wanted to be accepted so bad I was willing to die
      Even tried to tell the pastor but he couldn't see
      Years of low self esteem and insecurities
      Church taught me how to shout and how to speak in tongues
      But preacher teach me how to live now when the tongue is done, help me
      
      [Chorus]
      
      See I'm. See I'm
      Soul survivor. Soul survivor
      World survivor
      I just wanna let it go
      World survivor, soul survivor
      Just wanna let it go
      
      Jesus please on my knees can't you hear my crying
      You said to put it in your hands and lord I'm really trying
      You wasn't lying when you said you'd reap what you sow
      Like that night mama died
      Hard to let it go
      You adopted me
      Cared for me
      And changed my name
      But I cursed at you
      Lied to you
      Left your pain
      It's not strange I can still see it in my head
      To know for hours you were laying in that bed
      If you listening to this record,
      If it's day our night
      If my mama still living treat your mama right
      Don't be like me and let that moment slip away
      And be careful cause you can't take back what you say
      To my real mama if you listening I'm letting it go
      To my father I forgive you 'cause you didn't know
      The pain was preparation for my destiny
      And one more thing lord let my son be a better man than me
      
      [Chorus 2x]
