Your best friends, your best friends, (Lord) can be your worst enemy.
For real. They are grudgeful. They carry enough baggage. You know the things that you hold inside, they distort your vision.
And no man can tell another man what the next man is thinking about.
Neither can you know the next man's intentions. You see man, him focus upon the outward appearance too much, but God deals with the heart.
Chorus: How do you judge me and not look inside my heart? How can you tell I have a bad intentions? How do you judge and not look inside my heart? Only Jah Jah knows my true motivations. (2x)
For six years we have been the best of friends, a partnership that would last to the end. And then you think that I am just playing pretend. It is all that I want is this friendship to mend. A chain is a strong as the weakest link. I can lead you to the water but I can't make you drink. To force you that is not my desire but I have to stop you from running into the fire! Lord.
Only Jah Jah, only Jah Jah, only Jah, only Jah.
A friend in need is a friend indeed. What has be it has got to be. A silent river it always run deep. All of them talk but talk is cheap. From (when) you see my face you know my description but you don't see my heart nor my intentions. Unto the Bible I have to stay true, a man has got to do what a man has got to do Woy!
Restoration, restoration, all that I am searching for is reconciliation. Restoration, restoration, Lord! Lord!
Lord Have Mercy woy! We shared the same burdens, frustration and rage. Yet you want to judge this book by the front page. Render your heart and not your garment, I thought that your trust it would be sufficient. I know in the past I have made some wrong moves with my track record, I guess I (will) have to prove that my hands and my heart were pure and clean in Jah sight. I only wanted what was biblically right. Woy! Oh Lord, In Jah sight.
How do you tell me that I am wrong inside my heart? How do you tell me that I have bad intentions? How do you judge me but not look inside my heart? Only Jah Jah only Jah. Jah Jah know. Only Jah Jah know my true motivations. Only Jah Jah know my true heart's intention. Only Jah Jah know my true motivations. Only Jah Jah know my true heart's intention. Lord unto you... My heart, my heart, my heart cries open for you. What else can I do? (It) cries open for you (2x)
Restoration, restoration, I praise the Lord for this reconciliation. Reconciliation, reconciliation, woy, ya, ya!
