TURNIN UP

Verse:

Speaks is dead, I guess the ball is back to me

He fades to black, I don’ retract, it’s how it has to be

Church stole his heart and broke his spirit casually

Out know where like the satellite on Christmas Eve

Man, that pain was greater than a blindside hit

Penetrated, armor stabbed me in the back quick

You said you loved me like a song I used to laugh at

That statement up and down like the dow on wall street’s NASDAQ

 

Chorus:

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

 

Verse 2:

I live in a world where the people so crazy

One day they love you, then rub you the wrong way

Intentionally try to come slay me

Out of my mind, I was so blind

Thought we was family, and ride till we die

Holiday season, share piece of the pie

Live in the house, where you chill and reside

It was a lie

All your plans for me was phony

Fed me this and that, bologna

Lost a few friends to you, the homies

Told me to leave you ‘lone,

Gon’ leave you ‘lone

Gon’ leave you ‘lone, and do me

I was dedicated to my duties

Knife goes deep while I was asleep

Told me to hit the road and don’t speak

But now I’m doin’ me, tom foolery

Mind on the world, and jewelry

Gotta find a job, I’m Ubering

No where to stay, don’t wanna pray

All that did was ruin me

I knock knock knock knock knock

Right on the door

You wasn’t answering

Day was callin, You ignored, I’m out!

 

Pre-Chorus:

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Chorus: 

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

 

Verse 3:

Thought my purpose was tied to you

I was workin to raise our troops

Goin hard in everything I did

With the Lord, I try to reach these kids

Couldn’t sleep, too many thoughts in lid

All the things I did off the grid

It would-a blew your mind if you underbid

But if it wasn’t for me, that’s why I kept it hid

Keepin’ it hidden

Because it is written

What you do in secret is seen by the risen

one in the heavens that chose me

That put in me in a pastor position

I’m writing a song, not to prove that I’m right

But to demonstrate how you hurt body of Christ

And I’m raising alert for the people that’s tight

Am I wrong am I’m right

Bringing this to the light

Time will tell, time will show

Did this for me diary musical

Releasing this burden, not for me to hold

Growing for certain, searching for my role

In this shell that we call life

Don’t get me wrong, I shall love you despite

This is me manning up, call if you like

 

Pre-Chorus:

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Chorus: 

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

 

Verse 4: 

Don’t be a head that manipulate

Care for the people in any state

If you wanna have a good ministry

Make converts, don’t you baby feed

Don’t do things just to be seen

Church aint a business or machine

Can’t want people just to get rich

Have a nice bank account

And church edifice

Don’t talk about leaders to leaders

Gossip division breeders

Can’t make church priority

What about your fam,

I think that’s adultery

Can’t have vision without prayer

That’s like sayin’ we a team without players

Many feel the same way

But I have the heart to say it

 

Pre-Chorus:

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

 

Chorus: 

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up

Turnin Up, I’m turnin up
