You raised me straight and raised me true,
spent my days becoming you.
Sunday morning, evening too
sittin’ in your second pew.

Torn apart, my spirit spent,
I fell in love on accident.
Wondered just what Jesus meant
when he said our love was heaven sent.

(Refrain:)
Papa, I don’t need a preacher
I ain’t some kind of creature
from some old double-feature.
I just wanna make you proud
of the kind of love I’ve found.
Well you say it ain’t allowed,
you say that it’s a sin,
but it’s how I’ve always been.
Did you love me when
he was just my friend?

Been trying my hardest not to be,
locked my door and I broke the key.
Jesus died upon that tree,
Daddy do you think it covered me?
Red and yellow, black and white,
we are precious in His sight.
So why can’t I sleep through the night?
Daddy, do you think I’ve turned out right?

(Refrain)

Papa, you’re the one that taught me
by His stripes He sought me
and with His blood He bought me
Daddy, you’re the one that claimed
that He’d love me through the flame
now, can’t you do the same?
I’ve been born again
but I first was born in sin.
Did you love me then? Did you love me then?
