DMX - Head Up Lyrics

[Intro: DMX]
I just wish we all understood, the beauty, of music...
Grrrrr, just listen

[Chorus 2X: singers (DMX)]
Keeeeeep (YEAH!) your heeeeead (WHAT!)
To the skyyyyyyyy (uhh, uhh, uhh, uhh, C'MON!)

When I think I don't deserve it - I think about Jesus
and the fact that he was perfect and he thinks that I'm worth it
I know I got a purpose
So when I don't like what I see in the mirror, I learn to look past the surface
Believe me God heard this, cause these words came from my heart
I was in pain, it was dark!
Then came the spark to light down the road
and let me know, He would lighten up my load
And it's gon' get greater, later
God only wants the BEST for me but the devil's a hater
I can see his eyes through the smiles of fake friends
Y'all think hate wins, just keep waitin!
At the end of the day who's will will you think will prevail?
Or will you live to tell?
Miracle after miracle'll come through
The spiritual individual is IN you!


Lord if you hear me, you know that I'm comin to you sincerely
I need you near me, please feel me
I'm sick and I need for you to heal me
I'm lost and lookin for the real me, I'm tired and weary
Haven't been able to see things clearly
Even though I know you love me DEARLY, I still get leery!
So where does that leave me? Lost and alone
Wanna call God but it's like I lost my phone
Every DAY is a struggle, cause I juggle my problems
Need to let go and let God cause only He can solve 'em
I'm tired of lyin to myself! Thinkin I can do it on my own
But when I get left alone
is when the devil sneaks in and creeps in
Knocks on the door lightly and creaks in
And it's usually around the weekend
Then I get reckless and jump off the deep end!

[Chorus - repeat 2X]

Keeeeeep your heeeeead, to the skyyyyyyyy [repeat to the end]

[Outro: DMX]
Man, man, man
This, is somethin special
Keep your head to the sky
He didn't bring me this far to let me go
And that's, just what it is

    "When the devil sneaks in and creeps in, knocks on the door lightly than peeks in, and it’s usually around the weekend then I get reckless and jump off the deep end" ....For anyone who's ever dealt with drug addiction this lyric hits hard.

    It's only "Real Music" when X spits about killing and screwing his soul up now that he is trying to get right ppl sleepin on him

    larry geronimo

    jnco corbett just people here in the states. He's respected outside the states cause people around the world seem to have more class and respect for artists and not just for the ones who are on top right now.

  55. Tyler Scott

    DMX got another album dropping this is just an album that dropped soon as he got out of prison some of these songs are two , three years old he even confessed it. For all the people saying negativity its better then any lil wayne , drake or another rapper. Least x is speaking from the heart we need to give him some positive feedback for another good album this is the start he's the only artist to drop 2 albums in the same year for real long live the legend DMX.

  56. WicKked WiazZard

  66. R Kelly

  67. D K9

  68. MTHDCL

    DMX is an inspiration lyrically. Even though some of his songs he's cursing people out. The ones like this are amazing you can feel his emotion in them.

  69. D K9

    Who cares?

  70. D K9

    Dunno I liked a lot of songs of this album, better than most crap I hear nowadays anyway.

  71. blackandgold51

    As a person from New Orleans, good album from DMX, but he may or may not sell enough albums like he did in the past cause' of fucked up lil wayne fans.

    Lil wayne, the worst rapper alive.

  72. VIsubby

    and you wonder why they've never given him awards das aright cause he does it for the Lord, the Devilish shall speak down upon him an hold him das aight cause God carries him up on his shoulders

  89. bayzlordz


  90. TheAforAnarchy

    holddat what do you know about crack? It doesn't care who it addict's. Just because he may have smoked or continued doesn't make him any less of a man if anything he is more of a man because look where he is and where you are. I bet after his biggest binge he had more loot then you!

  91. LilAndr3w

    DMX is much better than all this crap what's on the radio

  92. holddat14


  93. cphilipov

    Stop Blaming Wayne !!! DMX is one of the best I cant ignore that but Wayne has a way of making people accepting his music so that makes him not worse than him :}

  94. Yassir Foreman

    if u don't like dmx u better go and listen to ur birdniggas

  95. alelogger

    dmx is not hip hop, biggie is hip hop, your just one of the people who listens to the dog, so they can can sound cool., ugh

  96. danillobay

    DMX will always be one of the best to ever MC. One thing, his music style never changes. If you don't agree, you haven't heard music at all.

  97. Eric Magnetics

    X IS THE Grand Champ Baby ANyone THinks He Isn;'t one of the Best that ever did and i still doing it should be Shot Striaght up besides that one love - magnetics

  98. carrie lynn

    cause hey writes from the heart and hey is not perfect. All other rappers rhyme from the head and make party music to make money for clothes and bitches , that is why hey is real and the Illuminati try to fuck him up and hey doesn't even rap about them
