Lyric "Protection"

[Verse 1]
I've seen some things in life as God is my witness
A crowded bar where nobody could hear
Now I travel through the world with dedication
And what I do, I do it all by my own sweet self

[Chorus]
I need protection from the enemy of love
I need protection from the enemy of righteousness
I need protection from the enemy of good
I need protection from the enemy of kindness
Give me protection from the enemy of love

[Verse 2]
I came into the world all alone
Pushing and struggling to find a home
I'll tell you what child, go ahead and repeat it
It was my own trial made me stand on my two feet

I need protection from the enemy of love
I need protection from the enemy of rock and roll
I need protection from the enemy of good
I need protection from the enemy of kindness
Give me protection from the enemy of soul

[Chorus breakdown]

[Verse 3]
You know the people be grinnin' and talkin' about me
Make me throw up my hands and call out crying
But the worlds gonna spin with or without me
So I still get up and I keep on trying
Living in a world full of endless troubles
Living in a world with darkness doubles
But my burden is lifted when I stand up
And use the gift I was given for not giving up

[Chorus]

[Outro]
I need protection
Give me protection
I need protection
Give me protection
Yeah I need protection
Give me protection
I need protection
Give me protection
