  • There are times when I don't wanna speak
    Grab a pen, scratch your chin, make a beat
    Maybe not, smokin' pot on the beach
    Paranoid with my boys, where my keys?
    And my head in the clouds, is that him?
    And my boys trippin' hard like, "Nigga, chill"
    Someone new with the mouthful of boot
    Now my boys, they come in with the deal

    Yeah, I'm not mad at you
    Things I'm going through make me act the fool
    Please don't think I'm cruel
    Really normally I'm cool
    There is nothing you can do
    Hey
    When my words are few
    Things ain't what they seem
    Feeling like I'm fooling me
    I know God is calling me
    I'm not where I'm s'pposed to be
    Sitting here smoking trees
    When I should be on my knees
    When my words are few

    Why you hounding me (why you hounding me) in the house of the Lord?
    Conscience, guilty
    Ain't in no mood for no parking lot prophecies
    That's why act an addiction, you can't find me
    Oh ain't no smiles, ain't no joke
    No bitches, please
    Ain't no rest for my soul til' I come clean (come clean)
    Gon' hear from the Lord if I speak
    So back off and let me eat, let me feast (let me feast)

    I'm not mad at you
    Things I'm going through make me act the fool
    Please don't think I'm cruel
    Really normally I'm cool
    There is nothing you can do
    Hey
    When my words are few
    Things ain't what they seem
    Feeling like I'm fooling me
    I know God is calling me
    I'm not where I'm supposed to be
    Sitting here smoking trees
    When I should be on my knees
    When my words are few

    I know that I (I know that I)
    chose to backslide, but now I know the way
    I was born and raised in this thing
    And that's something I chose to do
    Church all my life (church all my life)
    I ain't yet stepped outside but now I feel the light calling me
    Back to the fall (back to the fall)

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
    Love, love, love, love
    Yessir
    Sing that song nephew
    Lord knows
    Praise his name, yes
    (Yes) Clap your hands now
    Oh man, you took me to church on that one nephew
    Hey, when my words (when my words are few)
    Oh if I couldn't say a word, I would just wave my hands (you gotta sing!)
    When my words are few
    Let my work, let my work speak for me
    When my words are few
    I'm speechless
    When my words are few (yessir)
    When my words are few
    Slade (yessir)
    Take 'em to the altar (yeah)
    When my words are few (preach, church)
    When my words are few
    Oh if I couldn't sing a word, I would just raise my hand (yes Lord)
    When my words are few, oh (there's nothing left to say)
    stay strong and let your work (speak to me)
    speak, speak to me lord, speak to me
    speak to me, yeah (speak to me)
    speak to me (speak to me, Lord)
    speak to me, Lord
    Ooh, come with me
    When my words are few
    When my words are few, oh
    When my words are few, ow (my words, my words, my words)
    When my words are few (yeah, yeah)
    When my words are few
    Feels good in my soul, chil'ren
    When my words are few
    When my my my my my my my my words are few
    When my words are few
    When my words are few
    Op' heart, fam heart, K-Mart
    When my words are few
    When my words are few
    When my words are few
    When my words are few
    When my words are few
