09 - So Many Purposes feat Nicole Rushton (SOCAN 2007)

Lyrics: Brockway Biggs (Ottawa, ON)
Beat by: Hotbox (Moncton, NB)

Story Behind It:
My friends David & Lacey invited me into their home for an alpha course. Their patience & understanding opened my heart to God.

Nicole Singing Intro 2x
If you're feeling the love, throw them L's on up

Verse 1:
I surrender. I am at your will
So many purposes in me you did instill
And still, all of them I work really hard to fulfill
While still being pleasant kinda like Camomile
Grant me patience for when egos collide
Grant me cadence for when I choose to rhyme
I go out of my way just to go for a walk
So that I can relax, and we can just have a talk

Chorus with Nicole 2x:
Nicole: If you're feelin the love.
Troy: In God I choose to Trust
Nicole: Throw them L's up
Troy: And in God I choose to trust
Nicole: Throw them L's up
Troy: yeah, in God I choose to trust

Verse 2:
He put me on this earth for a purpose
That aint something you can ever see from the surface
Avoid temptation to make the treat much sweeter
Cause in redemption, you won't feel the feeling of inferior
If you're sleeping around, but yet you're wearing his cross
It's clear that his words just didn't get across
True, Jesus died to redeem us from sin
But mean it when you ask for forgiveness from him
In hip-hop I see a lot of people that are struggling
But they'd rather blaze up than face what's troubling
I don't know what to do, but I feel like it's a rebellion
Yeah, I could start too, but I don't know what I'd just tell him

Chorus 2x

Verse 3:
It's time to take notice and time to listen
That ice on your wrist don't mean nothing when it glisten
For me, what's important is family,
faith and money enough to act supportively
See I can't lessen the lesson you'll learn from confession
I don't mean just saying the words, I mean truly stressin
To God, that it's not, an action you intend again.
but still we all sin, yeah even the reverend.

And it's like that. Come on now, Come on.

Nicole Outro 4x:
If you're feeling the love, then throw them L's on up
