R Kelly - Don't Let Me Die Lyrics




[R Kelly]
Dear God, bring our P-O-Ws home
And our brothers on lockdown, home
AMEN!!!

[Jay-Z]
JEAH !!! Back blocked on everybody laptop
(HOV) Hittin' niggas from da shower, hold a note like da guy who said da British is comin'
(KELL) Oh yeah da niggas is comin' get out ya good dishes or somethin' like it's Thanksgiving
(HOV) And non other than da "R" and without further a due like Freddy get ready it's .....

[R Kelly]
Whatever happen Lord, dont pass me by
Cause whenever I did wrong it was ya name I cried
I heard you forgave over and over again
But when I found out I love you, you became ammune to my sins
Laid wide awake in da middle of my sleep (I see dead people)
And sometimes it's me Lord
I never wanted to be a thug father
I only wanted to be a son of a father
That's how it sounds inside, worse than da war in Iraq, when it's me against I
I gave up da weed and somehow Im still high
Three years still seein' them three guys Lord (Whoo)
Sometimes I dont know what you want from me, but I do know you know what I want from you
(Give it to me)
(Come on) Take away this Hennessey, take away me runnin' da streets
Stop people from rapin' me, take away all this jealously and prejudicy
Lord you said it was better place, I grew up around pimps, hustlers, hoes and project gates
Its HARD TO BELIEVE in what I cant see
I got to get this money and feed my family

[Jay-Z]
Whatever in me guides my life, dear Lord Dont Let Me Die tonight
But if I shall before I wake, what shall I say
Its been a good run from hoodlum to outin' da states
How could one who made so much foul mistakes, still be allowed to have a smile on my face
How whatever da case Im glad it wasnt murder, in a town you never heard of
From a nickel plated burner
Now my life straight like a perm, tried to take da spot I earn
Muthafucka better learn

[Chorus]
(Its HOV) Back blocked on everybody laptop
(KELL) Hit niggas from da shower, hold a note like da guy who said da British is comin'
(HOV) Oh yeah da niggas is comin get out ya good dishes or somethin' like its Thanksgiving
(KELL) And non other than da "R" and without further a due like Freddy get ready

[R Kelly]
Lord hear me out, got a few more things to say
These demons be chasin' me like everyday (Come here)
Nah my life on crutches, never say I never walk again
But da devil is a lie cause I believe within'
You're da reason that Im still here, even though I dont act like it
Even though I hear my callin' and fight it
Fools do me so wrong, its hard to stay righteous
Pimpin was allowed to happen I'll hide it
Believe me Lord I want you, got money and fame but still it just wont do
Sometimes I dont like who I am, when I look in da mirror my reflection is Uncle Sam (Uncle Sam)
And every night I have these weird dreams, that a preacher trapped inside of me wake up and cant
breathe
I feel like its twenty of me, goin' twenty different directions on a one way street Lord
I got houses, money and cars, and met every single superstar
I got da whole music industry sold, but it still dont matter .......

[R Kelly & Jay-Z]
When Im gone and my casket closed!!!

[Jay-Z]
Whatever in me guides my life, dear Lord Dont Let Me Die tonight
But if I shall before I wake, I'd accept my fate
I did what I did my heart was in da right place (Ohhh)
I guess so I can live it put food on my plate
You must still love me not to let it in by three that day
Well whatever da case Im glad it wasnt murder, in a town you never heard of
From a nickel plated burner
I guess Im not finished wit my journey, please forgive me for my sins
Shit Im still tryna learn me

[Chorus]
(HOV) From da back block on everybody laptop
(KELL) Hit niggas from da shower, hold a note like da guy who said da British was comin'
(HOV) Oh yeah da niggas is comin get out ya good dishes or somethin' like its Thanksgiving
(KELL) And non other than da "R" and without further a due like Freddy get ready

[Bridge]
[(R Kelly) Jay-Z]
Many men (Whoo) have come and gone in these streets (Feel Me)
Walked alone in these streets (Ohhh) waitin' to hear from you (Come on Lord)
Oh Lord,(Whoo)wrap your arms (Wrap your arms around us God)around da hood
(Lift every peace from war, bring our soldiers home, Let us pray)

Dude is really talented both at singing & rapping, I don't care what yall say, his personal life doesn't concern me so I'm not getting into that but music wise he's untouchable & Chris brown & Tray songz n dem ain't got shit on Kells.

  31. TheBear

    think about this, Pinocchio said his nose is going to grow.
    Lie = growth
    truth = nothing
    if it doesnt grow he's lying but if it does then hes telling the truth.
    how does this work?

    ImmenZ__pkA

  52. 1qalo92ws

    dont care what nobody say Kells shitd on jay dis whole album,Jay phoned it in

  53. Gary Gray

    @OneTrillNigga07 ur an idiot obviously u havent heard about settling out of court

  54. Gary Gray

    @gopio9 Doesnt matter if he was acquitted of it or not he is still guilty of it he just got away with it thats not the first time he has been accused of this the victims refused to testify against him so there goes the trial and imma look up everything you talked about cause it sounds stupid to me

  55. Gary Gray

    @badgyrl310 thats not true jay z never kicked r kelly off the tour that doesnt make sense this collabo was his idea kelly was a diva on tour he didnt want people to be around him until he got on to the stage so the hallways had to be cleared and when he didnt get what he wanted he stopped this was a collabo between artist and record companies why would jayz do part of the tour alone and he was the only one at the press conference if r kelly was innocnent then y he sleepin with underage girls

  56. poetmm

    till this day i don't knonw why kells and jayz made and album together at least made it good but this song is hot though just the whole album wasn't good at all

  57. Parasuniversal.com

    @gopio9 def respect to Jay-Z but Kells used to be a real artist and real artists don't do things the normal way. average folks think it's just some b**** ass tantrums... but that what they thought about the greats till they opened their mind (usually after the artist dies)

  58. Gary Gray

    @countparas R.Kelly is a fucking diva dude got 1million dollars to go on tour with one of the biggest hip hop artist and didnt show up to some of the shows making Jayz fly solo.

  59. Parasuniversal.com

    @gopio9 if only jay-z's crew didn't funk it up... kells is legend nikka

  60. Gary Gray

    only if r kelly didnt have a huge ego they could of made more music together

  61. Panzer Crewman

    Nice joint. 3:51 is insane
