about

I was unhappy,
So I stepped onto a new road.
Unfamiliar with the way,
I stumbled along among the smiling humanity,
Some of whom, were truly happy,
Others, like me, were just smiling,
Although my smile was hopeful.

Fortunately, some on the road seemed to understand me,
They helped me up when I fell,
While others, still smiling,
Said I should watch where I was going,
After all,
God helps those that help themselves.

Track Name: DADDY
She stood by the door looking out of the window,
Making plans for a future that did not need me,
I felt my heart breaking as I told her I'd miss her,
I saw her expression as she turned to say,

Daddy, stop it,
You're gonna make me cry,
And I don't want to cry,
Daddy, stop it,
You're gonna make me cry...

As I watched, I remembered some scenes from her childhood,
The years she had trusted and depended on me,
My mind became weary, the dream was over,
I saw her expression as she stamped and said,

Daddy, stop it,
You're gonna make me cry,
And I don't want to cry just yet,
Daddy, stop it,
You're gonna make me cry,
Now take my arm and walk me down the aisle.

Step by step, proud and correct,
But the tears started flowing,
When I kissed my baby...
Goodbye.

Daddy, stop it,
You're gonna make me cry,
And I don't want to cry,
Daddy, stop it,
You're gonna make me cry,
So, there she stood cryin',
While I wore my biggest -
Smile!
Track Name: BE THANKFUL
Be thankful for what you have,
Don't sing the blues; don't keep a record of your loses,
'cause you got to learn to be thankful,
Don't wait 'till it's too late,
Learn to be thankful before,
You're beaten down, depressed and resentful.
Track Name: LORD'S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven. Make holy on this earth, your name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. On earth as it is in heaven. On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses. As we forgive. As we forgive. As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Track Name: NO MATTER WHAT
Lord, make into what You want me to be,
No matter what the cost is to me.
