"PERFECT DAY"

Intro: Ready? Bring it on!

Verse 1 [Rap]
Here we go! Life is made up of so many little choices,
The thoughts in our heads of a million different voices,
Telling you to do this, telling you to say that.
All along, Upstairs, Someone's waitin' for a chat,
Tryin' to keep you on the track, getting' you to do some good,
And hangin' out with the guys from the right kind of hood.
In the still, in the silence God's voice can be heard,
But if you don't get quiet, you'll never hear a word.

Learn to give Him your love,
Learn to give Him respect,
Wisdom from Above, 'cause without it you're wrecked.
Learn how to make contact, how to connect;
The way to stay on track is at your beck and call!
Speed dial to the Heavenly Hall!

Chorus 1
That little voice is reaching out for you,
Over and over.
Oh, yes, it's calling. Can't you hear?
You gonna listen or run away?
Those arms are waiting just to hold you,
And they'll keep you through anything.
Draw close, He'll draw ever more near,
Closer and closer to that Perfect Day,
Yeah, to that Perfect Day,
To that Perfect Day!

Verse 2 [Rap]
Then learn how to obey, 'cause you believe.
Don't go the hard way of Adam and Eve,
Or you're cruisin' to be losin', you're doing it all wrong.
Don't forget, it's a duet. Are you singing the same song?
He's given us power, He's given us tons,
The pass is airborne. You gonna catch it and run
And score Him a touchdown, a slam dunk, a goal [soul]?
Enough of the sleepy stuff, it's time to rock and roll!

Bridge
This is a gift, catch the drift
Of the things He's sayin' to you.
Soon will come the final run prophets were all dreaming of.
'Round the bend, there's no end
To the things He can do through you.
Only please claim the keys, you'll keep rising above.

Chorus 2
That little voice is reaching out for you,
Over and over.
Oh, yes, it's calling. Can't you hear?
You gonna listen or run away?
Those arms are waiting just to hold you,
And they'll keep you through anything.
Draw close, He'll draw ever more near,
Closer and closer.

Chorus 3
---- --You gonna listen or run away?
Those arms are waiting just to hold you,
They will keep you through anything.
Draw close, He'll draw ever more near,
Closer and closer and closer to that Perfect Day,
To that Perfect Day, to that Perfect Day.
