I met Craig at a church called Redeeming Grace It's like he understood my "I don't want to be here" face I felt out of place and I smelled like beer But he just shook my hand, said "I'm glad you're here" He says "we'll all be judged" But he was never judgemental And even though my songs don't belong in no hymna He'd quote me my lyrics, slap me on the back Said "Man you've got a gift! How you write like that?"
Yeah I know, he sounds cool right? Not your typical kid from Sunday School, right? I still ain't figured out church yet But Craig, I get Nah he can't walk on water, turn the Napa Valley red But he just might be tight with a man that did Now he's not the light of the world But I wish that mine was bright as his Yeah he just might be tight with a man that is
When you lose a record deal, yeah all the perks fade fast Dealership said, "We're going to need to get that mini-van back" So we were down to one car And broke as I felt My wife and six kids and only five seat belts I needed help but couldn't admit I was struggling Said, "Craig, it's all good" But he knew it all wasn't A "Hey man I'm praying for you" would've been sufficient but nah He took roadside assistance to a whole other level To sacrificial heights
Showed up at the ballpark after my son's game one night In two cars, with his wife Laura watching from the other I said "What in the world are y'all doing here, brother?" He just laughed inside that old Chrysler Town and Country van With the keys, and a title, and a pen in his hand Said "Man, all you got to do is sign and it's yours" I said "No, no way" But he wouldn't take "no" for an answer He said "Please do Somebody did this for me once, just let me do this for you" We argued about it for a little while Then I teared up, and Craig smiled
Yeah I know, he sounds cool right? Not your typical kid from Sunday school, right? Nah he can't walk on water, or turn the Napa Valley red But he just might be tight with a man that did Now he's not the light of the world But I wish that mine was bright as his Yeah he just might be tight with a man that is
My pride was way too ashamed to be adequately grateful at the moment But I signed the dotted line, and I drove the kids home And when the cop pulled up beside us At the light, they didn't have to duck Because thanks to Craig They were all buckled up

"The Night Chicago Died" was written and recorded by the British group Paper Lace. They talk about Al Capone in the song, but got a lot of details wrong - understandable since they wrote it based on gangster movies.
"I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me) " borrows four bars from Notorious B.I.G's "The World Is Filled." Jay-Z and Biggie Smalls attended Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School in Brooklyn, New York at the same time.
