Nice Diamonds

I guess you could say I was more than just devoted
I guess I could say I was your true friend till the end
Like every Soldier never left a fellow Soldier on the Battlefield
That's not how we do this
And when I seen you in a predictament I could'nt help it
I guess it was my own fault
I guess we had to really be selfish 
Never acting out of kindness
Always bashing on each other cause we're so angry
and frustrated at the way that life is 
And I know that he's not really like me
He could never replace me
That's okay - I left - I had to leave
It was'nt my fault, I guess you could say it was all part of my destiny
Cause if I did'nt feel the pain and I did'nt experience the hardships
How could I sit here and give you anything heartfelt
Of course every since I was knee high
I have suffered more than many, many, many times
And many lives and many sufferings 
And many pains from many mothers
That was born and the child was stillborn
But he was still formed and his heart throbbed
But we never seen it because the Life never breathe the air
And the oxygen just goes back it's like backdrafts
It's like I'm coming back and I'm bashing
I guess you could say in hell they tried to grab my soul so many times
That the devil - bad, real bad - like the Lord said He chosen me
Like I got more demons they just coming over here
Falling and coming off people that's surounding me
That's okay stack em up\\\\\\\  Baby I got an Army of Angels
That's - why - I be on the beat
Be looking like - The Golden Streets
Th Mansion the Lord has for us
Yes I believe - I will receive - Eternity
Yes I believe God, He is Loving me 
And I tell you I'm the worst sinner
I'm the least of men
But Jesus said he'd be the greatest in The Kingdom Of Heaven
And I'd be happy just to be the custodion
Just to be the one, just to be the Janitor
To clean up the mess I made
I guess it would - take - many Eternity's just to clean it all up
And the pain I caused and the mistakes I made
And every thing I think about
I geuss you could say everything thing happens for a reason
Why? Don't tell me that
Don't try to break it down
Just make it simple like
Like I needed to be a simple man 
But I'm so complex and complicated
Just like the layers is!
