Take Me Back

You never thought that you'd ever get caught With your hand up in the cookie jar Playing spades with the devil Now, boy, why'd you have to go and do that for? See, you better stop your bluffing now You know they make up the rules You think you playing the game Now, brother, you played the fool They gon' play you for a fool Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep And if I die before I wake Must be a mistake, Lord take me back Know it ain't right sometimes But we running all through my mind I know it ain't right Don't believe it when they say justice is blind Oh, there's something awful in the way You've been working all on my nerves And I've been thinking every day I'm gonna give them what they deserve They gon' get what they deserve Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep And if I die before I wake Said, if I die before I wake Well if I die before I wake It's got to, got to, got to be a mistake, Lord take me back Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep And if I die before I wake I know it got to be a mistake, Lord take me back Ooh, take me back Whoa, Lord take me back Ooh, you got to take me back I don't need this, I don't deserve it It ain't my fault, ain't nobody perfect This ain't justice, and I didn't do it They just talking, but they can't prove it Gimme a chance, start over again All I want is a different end Start it over, over again Do it over again, do it over again, start it over again
