Stories (Down to the Bottom)

We’ve been down to the bottom Stories we got ‘em, when we hit rock bottom If you been there put your hands in the air To let the lost know that someone cares Cause we’ve been down to the bottom Stories we’ve got ‘em, when we hit rock bottom If you been there put your hands in the air And let somebody know that the Most High cares I never knew that it would feel like this When the two that raised you up and call it quits Nobody told me ‘bout the emptiness When the place you call home is closed for business I push the pain down, I gotta “get by” Always knowin’ in my heart that it ain’t gonna fly Rock bottom’s never felt so near before And if pain is God’s megaphone it’s loud and clear So hold me now father, human love ain’t enough I’ve failed and been failed by the people I love But your faithful arms they surround me And any other soul who has to sail those seas Of a broken family Been so many times that I’ve been close to rock bottom Tryin’ to look for answers but nobody’s got’em Like the time my mother looked me in the eye Tryin’ not to cry, tellin’ me the cancer might cause her to die How can this be, I thought that God loved me? So why would he try to take my mother from me? And as I cry myself to sleep at night, holding on my pillow tight He spoke to me and said that everything gonna be alright So I tried to fight all the pain that it caused Try to move on and I try to stay strong So put your hands up, hey, if y’all are feelin’ me And put your hands up for everyone to see So put your hands up, we all a family So put your hands up, in unity, in unity I’ve been there too When everything falls apart and the best you can do is Get through each day wonderin’ will this never end? Is it always going to be this way? And the greatest lie you’ve ever been told is that You’re the only one to ever walk on this road And that you’ll never see the light of dawn, so we came together to say Hold on Cause we’ve been there and found our way home I promise you that you’re not on your own One day this will pass, God will see us all through God will see us all through, God will see us all pass through
