We've Come a Long Way - Lyrics

13 people in a one bedroom apartment scraping
spare change and put it in a empty milk carton
I was waiting on income tax so I could get that 2
grand, because hard times had my face buried in my two hands
I was, weak in the knees so tell me how could I
stand; no money in my pocket I'm feeling less of a man
Moma, I ain't forget some nights we had to sacrifice
with a fan in the window so they wouldnt turn out the lights
But that was the past, and look at you now;
over an acre a land and about to build that house on the ground
With a lack of transportation, I needed a ride;
and I never really had the best that money could buy
But thanks be to God for keeping my life in order;
ot times I struggled just to keep my head above the water

No money to pay the next bill and I didn't know what to do but I
thing I knew is that I didn't have a clue
and the bills were due we came a long way

This 2nd verse is to my brother, aye dude I love you;
and even if I had the option I wouldn't replace you with another.
I remember first fighting and us cussing one another
and not having respect because we did it in front of mother
Our personalities differ,
we like day and night and you were,
off to the army when you took your first flight.
And when you moved away to daddy's Ray that hurt my
heart But I tried to cover it up by saying I hated your guts
Yea its been a long road,
even bumpy at times I still look up
to you, even when you grumpy at times
Because you my big brother,
and you're one of a kind and you can't
quote me on this, whenever I shine you shine
And now you have a son and its pulled you to a new start,
people can say what they want but none has a bigger heart

Grady Hypolite Jr.
you'll forever be my brother and the day has
finally come that we can laugh with each other

Last but certainly not least,
this goes out to my God who,
gave me salvation when I couldn't save myself
The one that took me in when I hated myself
even when I fell in sin, and degraded myself
I ain't pay him no attention for like 19
years; But he never left my side during them 19 years
And I've shed many tears and I've had plenty fears and
I've let him down so much I've wondered how could he love me
The shape my sin put me in had me looking ugly when
I wanted to give up he took me by the hand and drug me
And you've had patients and so much longsuffering;
granted forgiveness even when I pushed the wrong buttons
Thank you for walking with me and being so gentle
and pouring out your love to me when I was a sinner

You planted me in yourself now I'm starting to grow we've
come a long way but still got so far to go I love you Jesus
