Album: The Rebirth of Kirk Franklin
by Kirk Franklin


Daughter: Hello
Kirk: Hey, it's me, Kirk, I need to speak to Bishop
Daughter: Sure, hold on...

Jakes: Hello...
Kirk: Hey... I got some stuff I need to talk to you about
Lately, pastor I've been...having all these crazy kind of dreams
It's hard to sleep, I can't eat...scary, you know
Jakes: I know what you mean
Kirk: I mean, every since that Tuesday, seems like life's just getting real strange
Jakes: I hear ya
Anthrax, terrorist attacks and... I ain't even trying to get on no plane
Jakes: I feel ya
Kirk: ...and you know when I try to pray, there's a voice that telling that God's not real
Jakes: You know that's just the enemy
Kirk: Yea, but you ain't feelin' me
Jakes: No son, I know just know you feel...
See, just because I preach and teach don't mean I don't get scared sometimes
Kirk: yea, whatever, but you T.D. Jakes
Jakes: Well, then I don't make mistakes...
Kirk: Well...
Jakes: Now, let me tell you what's on my mind...
When your smile is gone (He cares)
Kirk: Yea, but I feel so alone (He's there and...)
Jakes: Although, your heart is heavy, God said: (every burden I will bear)
Kirk: See, but you don't know my (my pain)
And I'm getting so sick and tired of all (this rain)
I just got laid off, and to top it off the rent's due, so tell me what I got to gain
Jakes: Well, see, trials come to make (you strong)
Storms won't last (last long)
Kirk: But how can I trust God in all this mess
Jakes: Well, see that's the reason for the song
See, wherever you go there's one thing ya got to know
God, is right there by your side (weeping may endure for a night)
And he told me to tell you everything (everything's gon' be alright)

So thank you for calling...it's always good to hear from you
Kirk: yea, but...
Jakes: But I gotta go now
Kirk: wait a minute...
Jakes: I got another call on line 2
Kirk: But I ain't through

Kirk: See I'm sick and tired of all these church folk talking about stuff ain't as bad as it seems
See, y'all don't feel my pain...
Jakes: I don't have pain...
Kirk: I don't see how ...you on the cover on Time magazine
Jakes: See, but you're looking at now and you don't know how I struggled and what I've been through
Kirk: Yea, whatever...
Jakes: Now, you crossed the line...
Kirk: I'm just speakin' my mind


Jakes: O.K. so let me speak mine, too (Hmmmmmm)
I've made some mountains, I've seen some valleys, I've even had to cry sometimes
Like when I lost my mother
Kirk: Your mother
Jakes: My mother:
Kirk: I'm sorry...
Jakes: No son...that's fine: ...see life is full of ups and downs but God said
(the storm won't last long)
Kirk: But how'd you make it through
Jakes: Boy, I thought you knew...it was His (love that kept me strong)
When your smile is gone (He cares)
Kirk: But I feel so alone (He's there and...)
Jakes: Although, your heart is heavy, God said...(every burden I will bear)
Kirk: yea, but see...y'all don't feel (my pain)
And I'm getting very sick and tired of all this (this rain)
Just got laid off, and to top it off the rent's due, so tell me, Bishop, what I gotta gain
Jakes: Didn't I tell you trials come to make (you strong)
And those old storms won't (last long)
Kirk: How can I trust God in the midst of all this mess
Jakes: See that's the reason for this song
Wherever you go there's something ya got to know (God still cares)
(weeping may endure for a night)
And he told me to tell you (everything's gon' be alright)

Kirk: Thank you pastor
Jakes: Any time...
Kirk: I think I can make it now...just tell me what I need to do
Jakes: Just pray this prayer with me...
Say: Father (Father) forgive me (forgive me) I'm sorry (I'm sorry)
Please help me (help me) I love you (I love you) I need you (I need you)
Hold me (hold me) Jesus (Jesus)
My heart (my heart) my soul (my soul) please take (please take) control (control)
Right now (Now) now (now) now (now) (right now)

Jakes: When you ain't got no smile (he cares)
Kirk: and even when you feel so alone (he's there and...)
Jakes: Although your heart is heavy, God said (every burden I will bear)
Kirk: And even in the midst of all ya (pain)
And when you're sick and tired of all the rain (this rain)
Remember that the rain won't last always...and in Christ Jesus, you got so much to gain
Jakes: You see your trials come to make you (strong)
And the storms won't last (too long)
Kirk: Remember my brother, my sister...it's only temporary
Jakes: See that's the reason for this song
Wherever you go
Kirk: There's something you've got to know
Jakes: God is still there (weeping may endure for a night)
Kirk: And told me to tell you (everthing's gon' be alright)

ad lib to end
