If You Don't Mind

Album: Let Love Rule (2017)
  • Hit me!

    (Hey) if you don't mind, can I be far from perfect?
    Just can I be me?
    Do you have time to see?
    What a work in progress reeled in me
    Spent many nights on my knees
    'Cause that's the key for me to be free
    A thousand tears, a million rose
    Just some ingredients that helped me to grow

    Got to pay, added some sun and rain
    Blended it together with craze
    I still I have to wait
    'Cause I want and need to be strong, yeah
    For the days I know I grow
    And all my superpowers, well they're gone
    You said I made something better, I'm putting it together
    Trust me
    If you don't mind
    See I know where I'm going
    If you don't mind, yeah, wow

    If you don't mind, can I be
    Honest, it was so hard to see
    Every hot day (every hot day), every closed door (every closed door)
    Every ingredients that helped me to grow

    Got to pay
    Add some sun and rain
    Bring it together with grace (grace)
    Still I had to wait (I had to wait)
    'Cause I want and need to be strong

    For the days I know I grow
    And all my superpowers, well they're gone
    You said I made something better, I'm putting it together
    Trust me

    If you don't mind

    Ooh, see I'm now where I'm going
    If you don't mind

    Hey, if you don't mind
    If you don't mind (I'll set you free)
    Don't mind (I'll give you fee)
    Don't mind (I'll be your source)
    Nobody can love you more

    If you don't mind (I'll have a fling)
    Don't mind (tomorrow isn't my end)
    Don't mind (taste and see)
    There'll never be another like me

    If you don't mind
    If you don't mind

    Come on, oh

    Got to pay
    Add some sun and rain
    Bring it together with grace (grace)
    Still I had to wait (oh yeah)
    'Cause I want and need to be strong

    For the days I know I grow
    And all my superpowers, well they're gone
    You said I made something better, I'm putting it together
    Trust me

    If you don't mind (if you don't mind)
    See I know where I'm going
    If you don't mind (oh, yeah, yeah)
    See I know what I'm doing
    If you don't mind (yeah, yeah)
    Get out of my way
    If you don't mind (yeah)

    Thank you, oh, ooh, thank you for everything you've done for me, oh, ooh Writer/s: Kirk Franklin
