Father Knows Best
by Kirk Franklin

Album: Long Live Love


Intro
See, it's important to understand
That just because God allows things that may not be good to us
Does not mean that's it's not good for us, yeah
See, a parent fails if a child never learns how to fly
I hope I'm talking to somebody today

Verse
I can feel that it won't be long
I see how my life could have gone wrong
Every time you delay my dreams, you were protecting me
All these are to make me strong (Hit me)
I can see that you have a plan
That I won't always understand
Even when I go my own way, you allow my mistakes
But still, hold on to my hand (Thank you)

Chorus
Oh, that's what real fathers do
I wouldn't expect nothing less from you (Hey)
See, it's alright to not always understand why
Let Him in, bring tears from your eyes (Feels good)
But God, your ways are better than mine (Take a look at my heart)
So whatever you see, keep working on me
(I just have one request)
Promise me you'll hold me close, don't ever let me go
Hold me close, don't let me go (Please)
Ooh, hold me close, don't let me go (Hey, one more time)

Verse
I can feel that it won't be long (Uh, yeah)
I see how my life could have gone wrong
(When I look over my shoulder, I remember)
Every time you delay my dreams (Ha)
You were protecting me (Yeah)
All these are to make me strong
(You even had a plan before time began, come on)
I can see that you have a plan (Woo)
That I won't always understand
(Ha, when I go too far, you pull me back)
Even when I go my own way, you allow my mistakes
But still, hold on to my hand (I like this part right here)

Chorus
Oh, that's what real fathers do (That's what real fathers do)
I wouldn't expect nothing less from you
(Somebody needs to know)
See, it's alright (It's alright) to not always understand why
(Life don't always feel good, come on)
Let Him in, bring tears from your eyes (You see what I can't see)
But God, your ways are better than mine (Take a look at my heart)
(So whatever) So whatever you see
(Please) Keep working on me
(I have one request, come on)
Promise me you'll hold me close (And don't ever)
Don't ever let me go
Hold me close, don't let me go (Hold me)
Ooh, hold me close, don't let me go (Please)
Don't ever let me go
Hold me close, don't let me go
(Keep me close to your heart, Jesus)
Ooh, hold me close, don't let me go (Please)

Bridge
(Father, King, yeah)
Take these things away from me
Make me the one that you died for (Yes)
Still, my heart believes in the brighter day
Help the world see we need you more (In another lifetime)

Chorus
That's what real fathers do (They always come through)
I wouldn't expect nothing less from you, from you (Hey)
See, it's alright (Come on) to not always understand why
(Your ways are not my ways)
Let Him in, bring tears from your eyes (Haha, sing)
But God, your ways are better than mine
(So whatever you see) So whatever you see
(Keep working on me) Keep working on me
(Promise me)
Promise me you'll hold me close (I say it again, promise me)
Promise me you'll hold me close (Jesus, promise me)
Promise me you'll hold me close
Don't ever let me go
Hold me close, don't let me go (Don't take your joy away)
Ooh, hold me close, don't let me go
Don't ever let me go
Hold me close, don't let me go (Please)
Oh, hold me close and don't let me go

Outro
Look at your neighbor, say "Neighbor" (Neighbor)
If God is our father (If God is our father)
That makes us family (That makes us family)
How can you love God (How can you love God)
And not love me? (And not love me?)
Get yourself together, come on
