INTRO (CONVERSATION)

 

CJ – HEY YO D

DEREK – YO WHAT’S UP C

CJ – NOTHING MUCH MAN, JUST WANNA KNOW WHEN YOU’RE GONNA MAKE ONE OF THEM SONGS MAN.

DEREK – WHAT TYPE OF SONG ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT

CJ – I’M TALKING ABOUT THE SONGS FOR US…THE YOUNG CATS, THE RUNNER UPS.  BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE WE SHOULDN’T BE JUSTIFYING OURSELVES FROM

TEMPTATIONS MAN.

DEREK – SO YOU MEAN LIKE A SONG ABOUT NOT COMPROMISING THEN RIGHT?

CJ - YEAH

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

EVERYDAY WE HAVE CHOICES TO MAKE THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR FATE

 

SIMPLY BY MAKING ONE MISTAKE

 

THESE THOUGHTS CAN GET THE BEST OF YOU BY VEXING YOU

 

TO MAKE THE WRONG CHOICES WHEN THE ENEMY’S STRESSING YOU

 

I ONCE HAD A SITUATION MYSELF WITH SOME PEOPLE WHO FELT

 

THEY KNEW THE SECRET TO BRING ME WEALTH

 

THEY TOLD ME IF I WANTED SUCCES AND FAME

 

TO WRITE SONGS THAT DIDN’T CLAIM JESUS’ NAME

 

AND I SAY TOO MUCH GOD THIS AND GOD THAT

IN FACT, KEEP IT LIKE SECULAR HIP HOP AND RAP

 

CHANGE IT SO THEY WON’T KNOW YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT JEHOVAH

 

THESE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU SHOULD DO FOR CROSSING OVER

 

I SAID TO THEM I DON’T SHARE THE SAME DREAM

 

OF TAKING GOD OUT JUST TO REACH THE MAINSTREAM

 

A DANGEROUS GAME SO YOU BEST APPROACH WITH CAUTION

 

FOR ME THOUGH, SELLING OUT FOR MONEY IS NOT AN OPTION

 

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

THERE’S A PROBLEM THAT I’M FACING

 

TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE IN THIS WORLD OF PAPER CHASING

 

TELL ME WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU WHAT WILL YOU DO

 

WILL YOU LOOK THROUGH GOD’S EYES OR WILL YOU COMPROMISE….NO COMPROMISE

 

I WANNA FIT IN WITH FRIENDS AND BLEND

 

BUT WHAT I FEED ON DECIDES WHAT SPIRIT WILL WIN

 

YOU’RE GONNA NEED TO KNOW WHICH WAY TO GO

 

WILL YOU LOOK THROUGH GOD’S EYES OR WILL YOU COMPROMISE….NO COMPROMISE

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

BROUGHT UP IN THE CHURCH AND WENT ALL HIS LIFE

 

AND AS A TEENAGER ALREADY PREACHING CHRIST

 

THROUGH TIME OBTAINED A GREAT AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE

 

WITNESSING TO PEERS UNTIL HE LEFT FOR COLLEGE

 

WHEN HE WAS HOME HIS PARENTS WERE VERY STRICT

 

HE LIVED FOR THEM AND NOT FOR HIMSELF HE WOULD ADMIT

 

SO HIS NEW FRIENDS SAID, GO TO CHURCH WHY BOTHER

 

HANG WITH US, WE’LL SHOW YOU THE FUN LIFE HAS TO OFFER

 

A LITTLE PLEASURE FROM SIN WENT TO A LOT

 

IT LEAD TO DRINKING, THEN HAVING SEX, AND SMOKING POT

 

IN A GREAT MEASURE, AND ADDICTED TO SIN’S PLEASURE

 

HE TRIED TO STOP BUT COULDN’T HANDLE THE PEER PRESSURE

 

A GOOD MAN WHO ONCE BROUGHT MANY TO CHRIST

 

UNABLE TO APPLY THESE SCRIPTURES IN HIS LIFE

 

HE LOOKS BACK WHEN HIS AND GOD’S SPIRIT DID HARMONIZE

 

NOW HE’S LOST IN SIN CAUSE HE CHOSE TO COMPROMISE

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

BRIDGE

 

BUT I WANNA FIT IN…..NO COMPROMISE

 

I CAN CONTROL MY SIN….NO COMPROMISE

 

EVERYBODY’S DONE IT…..NO COMPROMISE

 

BUT I REALLY WANT IT….NO COMPROMISE

 

BUT I NEED THE MONEY….NO COMPROMISE

 

BUT HE SAID HE LOVES ME…..NO COMPROMISE

 

BUT IT FEELS SO GOOD….NO COMPROMISE

 

BUT THEY TOLD ME I SHOULD….NO COMPROMISE

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

SHE WAS THAT GIRL WHO MADE HER MOTHER PROUD

 

VERY SMART WITH BEAUTY THAT STOOD OUT IN A CROWD

 

HER BODY SHE CHERISHED, NO KIDS NO BABY CARRIAGE

 

SHE PROMISED GOD THAT SHE WOULD SAVE HERSELF FOR MARRIAGE

 

ALWAYS ON FOCUS THOUGH HER BODY WAS NOTICED

 

BY ALL THE GUYS, BUT NOT WORRIED ABOUT THEIR MOTIVES

 

SHE KNEW WHAT THEY WANTED, TURNED THEM DOWN WITH THE QUICKNESS

 

BUT THERE WAS ONE GUY WHO ALWAYS SPARKED HER INTEREST

 

HER FIRST LOVE, SHE SAID “I’D MARRY THIS MAN”

 

BUT DIDN’T REALIZE ALL ALONG HE HAD A PLAN

 

HE PLAYED THE GAME TO PERFECTION

 

WOULD QUESTION WHY SHE DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE SEX, NO MORE REJECTION

 

HE SAID “I’LL FIND SOMEONE ELSE, I’M ABOUT TO MOVE”

 

“YOU WANT ME TO STAY THEN YOUR LOVE YOU’LL HAVE TO PROVE”

 

HE TOOK HER VIRGINITY AND THEN LEFT HER FOR SURE

 

A CHOICE SHE NOW REGRETS THAT LEFT HER NO LONGER PURE

 

 

CHORUS 2X’S
