TobyMac - Hey Devil

Just a funky song about what who we have overcome.



She dialed him about 6:00 pm
She checked her hair in the mirror
And she stepped through the door like this
Three flights down
And shes out on the streets
Walking brick sidewalks lined in grey concrete

He saw her coming from a few blocks away
Red scarf in the wind as it started to rain a bit
Shuffled down the boulevard
Cut me like a deck of cards
I thought you had me
You thought that you had me

But hey, Devil, go on
Get your junk out of here
I dont need you
I dont need you
Hey, Devil, go on
Get your junk out of here
I dont need you
So move on

I stepped to it like I knew what I was doing

Im a moth
Youre the flame
Never knew you'd be my ruin
In the blink of an eye
Element of surprise
Got my feet on the earth
But my face to the sky

Shuffled down the boulevard
Cut me like a deck of cards
I thought you had me
You thought you had me
Now the plot is thickening
Pushing deep under my skin
I thought you had me
You that that you had me

You're a beauty and A beast
You're the pressure never cease
You're the straight other side
And they say you never sleep

Toby Mac (feat. Beckah Shae)- Funky Jesus Music




Lyrics
Give me that Rock,
That hip, that rock
Give me that funky

Yo stick it in red
We got the cred
No need to say what's already been said
Don't need to please
When we got the proof
We be on our knees
When we raise the roof
'Cause we got the
"One pot" mix of flavor
We got the funky Jesus blazer
No equal
Diverse people
Come get it now
Won't be a sequel

Bridge:
None of that mumbo jumbo
Give me that hip hop funk soul
Give me that funky Jesus music
Give me that soulful gumbo

Chorus:
Give me that funky
Funky Jesus Music
Give me that hip, that rock, that funky soul
Give me that juicy flow
Give me that funky
Funky Jesus Music
Give me that hip, that rock, that funk and soul
And watch this party grow
Let's go

Look at them freaks, they fashion loud
Makin' that hotness, movin' that crowd
Bumpin' that junk with a life injection
Sweet to the ears like the candy section
is to the eyes
Feels so fly
Passion that just won't subside
We got this winner's ball
So check it out
Gonna' watch 'em fall

Chorus

Bridge

Chorus

We're goin' back
We're goin' way back

From coast to coast
This is the most
We got beats and rhymes
And aftershows
We got funky people on the highs and lows
MC's like we they call us pros
So, sure shot rockers take stock
of this
I'll play the post in the b-boy bliss
See, we bum rush with no discussion
A red hot show that freak production

Press Play- NY2LA

For a while I've been thinking about what a song for our generation would be like. What would be in it? What would the Christians in the new millennium use to distinguish themselves musically from others? This song is one of those songs that expresses that: The calling that through the power of Jesus Christ we can make a change, we can make a difference:


Lyrics:

New York to LA

Everybody get together
Let's work it out
Got the answer for this world
Let's make it count

Uh oh, uh oh
It's time to live it out
This crazy world we're livin' in
Is lookin' to us now


CHORUS
Oh, we all need love
A different kind of love
One that only comes from above
(X2)

Everybody dance
Everybody move
We can make a change
From New York to LA
(X2)


It's made up to you and me
So what's it gonna be
We can make a stand today
For love and unity

Uh oh, uh oh
I think the time has come
For us to make a difference
And live as one

Chorus

BRIDGE

Don't know you are
Don't know what you think
But you're going nowhere
if you stood in the sink
And we right on the brink
of breaking in here
Livin' the life that is
That seems so obscure
and we changing the world
and healing the hurt
and taking you there
with every word

And the signs on the minds
so yes we go in
Finale up
We at the big end



We are here on planet earth
To make a change
To stand for those who cannot

To never back down
But stand proud for God
The one and only true love

A different kind of love
A love that gives and forgives
Doesn't judge but extends a helping hand
A love that finds a need and fills it

A different kind of love
A love that shares hope, vision and dreams
A love that's not relevant, but revolutionary

Everybody dance
Everybody move
We can make a change
From New York to LA
(X4)
