  • I just wanna tell the truth mayne
    I just wanna tell the truth mayne
    I just wanna tell the truth mayne
    I just wanna tell the truth mayne
    I just wanna tell the truth mayne

    You're so fly, your so high
    Everybody around you trying to figure out why
    Your so cool, you win all the time
    Everywhere you go man you get a lot of shine
    You're draw like a magnet better yet I have it
    Everything you wear people say they got have it
    From the sweat suit to the white tee to the Gucci
    You can probably say people wanna get like me

    But what they don't know is when you go home
    And get behind closed doors, man you hit the floor
    And what they can't see is your on your knees
    So the next time you get a chance tell 'em

    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    You think I'm so fresh, you think I'm so clean
    You think I'm so sweet
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    What is it you think you see
    It's the God in me

    You see her style you think she nice
    You look at her whip you say the whip tight
    You look at her crib you thinkin' she's paid
    You look at her life, now you think she's got it made
    But everything she's got the girl's been given
    She calls it a blessing but you call it living
    When it comes to money she can be a hero
    She writes them checks with a whole lot of zeros

    But what you don't know is when she get home
    And get behind closed doors, man she hits the floor
    And what you can't see is she's on her knees
    If you ask her she'll tell you

    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    You think I'm so fresh, you think I'm so clean
    You think I'm so sweet
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    What is it you think you see
    It's the God in me

    What is it you think you see
    When you see me, you see me
    You don't know how much I pray
    Don't know how much I gave
    Don't know how much I changed
    I'm just tryna explain

    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    You think I'm so fresh, you think I'm so clean
    You think I'm so sweet
    It's the God in me
    It's the God in me
    What is it you think you see
    It's the God in me, yeah
    God in me, yeah yeah
    You think I'm so fresh, you think I'm so clean
    You think I'm so sweet
    It's the God in me, oh oh yeah yeah Writer/s: ERICA ATKINS-CAMPBELL, TRECINA ATKINS-CAMPBELL, WARRYN CAMPBELL
