R. Kelly – U Saved Me (Kenny Dope Dub) Lyrics

Artist: R. Kelly
Album: Happy People
Genre: R&B

I was riding in my car one day
In the expresslane rolling on the freeway
And suddenly the phone rings
So I reached down beside me I lookedon the floor felt on the back seat
See I was drinking while I was driving
Never thinking what I was doing
I turned around and before I knew it here comes this truck now

Doctor said I don’t think he’s ganna make it
Family said make the funeral arrangements
Unplug the machine he’s gone now
Then told my wife to be strong now
Then a small voice said to me if you promise to stop drinking
I surrenedered on that day and for ten years I’ve been straight

You saved meGave me a second chance
you saved meNow I’ve been sitting in this chair waiting on the phone to ring
Praying up to God that someone would call me with a job opening
Cause it’s been so hard for me month to month
Struggleing to eat, but still there was no answer
I stopped believing in his word
And got so mad at him
And when somebody said Gods good I’d just laugh at ’em
But in the nick of time his blessings rained on me
By his grace the phone rings and a lady said were hiring and Thats when I knew you saved me

You Saved MeNow I was 18 out therre on the block selling drugs
With a gun on my waist
And for people I had no love
See the streets was mt home Family and friends were all gone
Had no one to trusted And deep inside I was all alone And a deal went bad one day
And it was enough to pause me
I was shot 4 times and before I knew it I was on my knees
Blood pushin out my body
My heart is beating fast
I don’t know what I’m ganna do
I don’t think I’m gonna last
Then I began to flash back on the things I’ve done in my past
Then I heard a small voice that said I’ll give you peace if you believe
I accepted Christ that day HALILUJAH now I’m free

You Saved MeNow iI was in the aisle of the grocery store with a pain in my chest and I’m wondering where did it come from
(I got tested) And the results came back
And the doctor said I’m sorry but you’ve got cancer
I couldn’t believe it so I called up my mama to calm my nerves
(mama) she got down on her knees
(mama) she said a prayer for me
(mama)just keep on thankin Jesus
(mama) he’ll give you what you need
(thank you Jesus)
Now that was 5 years ago
I son’t have that pain no mo
Doc said you can go home
Cuz all your cancers gone

You saved meGave me a second chance
Halilujuah you saved me
Saved me Saved me
Wooooooh you saved me
You gave me it was by grace you saved me
I’m so thankful that you looked down on me
Saw me standing there
I was at the end of my rope no where to go
Sou saved me
I was down and out 2
