"selah( ya ya sisterhood)" as written by and Lauryn Hill....
Nothing can be done against the truth
No matter how we remain in denial
Wasting time replacing time with each decent excuse
But that will only work a lil` while
Copin` with despair knowing you’re not there
Ashamed to just admit I’ve been a fool
So I blame it on the sun ... Run away from everyone
Hoping to escape his ridicule
Trapped in misery
Wrapped so miserably in this deception, I wear it like a skin
Dying to maintain … oh I can’t try to explain to a heart that never loved me to begin
Oh I’m such a mess
I have no choice but to confess
That I been
Desperately trying to belong
Lying to myself and everybody else
Refusing to admit my right was wrong
And then he came
Selah
Oh and it means
Praise and meditation
And then he came
Selah
Oh and it means
“Did ya think about that”?
And then he came
Selah
Oh and it means
Praise and meditation
And then he came
Selah
Oh and it means
That it is seen,
How beautiful his fruits… still in denial of his roots
My guilty heart behaved so foolishly
This treason from within that reasoned with my sin
Won’t be happy till it sees the death of me
Selfishly addicted to a life that I depicted
Conflicted cause its not reality
Oh what’s left of me?
I beg you desperately
Cause me to agree with what I know is best for me
Please save me from myself
I need ya, save me from myself
Please save me from myself so I can heal
The choices that I’ve made
Oh have been nothing but mistakes
What a wasted use of space
Should I die before I wake?
In all of my religion
I fortified this prison
Obligated to obey
The demands of bad decision

Please save me from myself
I need ya to save me from myself
Please save me from myself so I can heal
And then he came
Selah
Oh and it means
Praise and meditation
And then he came
Selah
Oh and it means
Did ya think about that?
And he came
Selah
Oh And it means
Meditation
And then he came
Selah
Oh and it means
That it is seen


And then he came

And then he came, then he came, then he came

And then he

And he came

    this a song about facing yourself about everything you are running from and confessing to yourself and not to someone else because yourself is the one you fear the most
