"Why Me" as written by Gyung Yun and Hyun Jeong Lee....
Why me Lord, what have I ever done
To deserve even one
Of the pleasures I've known
Tell me Lord, what did I ever do
That was worth loving you
Or the kindness you've shown.

Lord help me Jesus, I've wasted it so
Help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I've need you so
Help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.

Tell me Lord, if you think there's a way
I can try to repay
All I've taken from you
Maybe Lord, I can show someone else
What I've been through myself
On my way back to you.

Lord help me Jesus, I've wasted it so
Help me Jesus I know what I am
Now that I know that I've need you so
Help me Jesus, my soul's in your hand.

    General CommentI heard that after a playing a show, Kris was asked to stick around and play a Gospel show later that night. He realized that he didn't have a Gospel song and wrote this in his dressing room. Not really a "Gospel" song by definition, but certainly inspired and spiritual. And, yes, powerful.

    General CommentThe gospel show is wrong.

    KK mentioned in an interview before playing this song that he wasn't a church goer, but was at church one sunday and the preacher started talking. Everyone was kneeling and the preacher asked people to raise their hand that wanted to be saved by god or wanted to repent (or something like that). KK, not realizing he raised his hand was pointed out. The preacher came to him, put his hand on KK's head and KK had a religious experience. Something he never felt before. That's where this song comes from. This is right from an interview with KK.

    Great song.
