A Ecause when my life got dark, He was the only spark
DHe was the light at the end of the road
VERSE 2: When I was a young boy, growing up in August Town We ate from the same pot, we were ithrens all around From corner to colour and corner, from rockers to jungle turf tire Rising to dread-heights and river, all around, yeah And then the football ground became a battle field and my life seem so surreal People were falling all around, but Jah helped me to stand my ground Only Jah, Only Jah, could have helped me to stand my ground CHORUS Though I never lived like he wanted, I was mindful of what he taught me So now I beg and plead, and on my bending knees Cause father you rescued me, and I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road Cause when my life got dark, he was the only spark The light at the end of the road oh oh Never lived to please him, I never lived like I should ohhhhhhoooh, father you rescued me oh yeah oh yeah I've lived and I've learned, I have made mistakes along the way Now I beg for forgiveness, each day as I try to pray So take it from me son, you can change the world today And am living proof, living proof that crime doesn't pay CHORUS 4X For I never lived like he wanted, I was mindful of what he taught me So now I beg and plead, am on my bending knees Cause father you rescued me And I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road Cause when my life got dark, he was the only spark The light at the end of the road I never lived like he wanted, I was mindful of what he taught me So now I beg and plead, am on my bending knees Cause father you rescued me And I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road Cause when my life got dark, he was the only spark The light at the end of the road Though I never lived like he wanted, I was mindful of what he taught me Am on my bending knees I ask the father please Father, you rescued me And I've got the scars to show, barely made it along life's road As my life got dark, he was the only spark The light at the end of the road I never lived, never lived, I never lived the way he wanted me to I never lived, God I tell you, God is my relief
