Said and Done

Mama I get the feeling

That I just can’t get it right

Nothing's all I’d have to show

If I left this world tonight

 

It’s empty cupboards and empty pockets

In spite of all the work I’ve done

Couldn’t help but thinking

That my time never gonna come

 

She said, boy let me tell you a secret

Once a father told a son

When he was staring in the face of doubt

Down the wrong end of the gun

 

It’s not things that make you matter

You see the matters make the man

We got to give unto this world

With the talents that we have

In the end there’s nothing to have won

 

When it’s all said and done

Where you true to number one?

Did you play your cards out on the table?

Make your stand, or did you run?

 

When it’s all said and done

Where you good to anyone?

Did you give your heart out for the taken?

Did you love, or did you run?

 

When it’s all said and done

Hard times will have gone and will have come

But when the darkness called your number

Did you do what must be done?

 

When it’s all said and done

Where you true to number one?

Did you play your cards out on the table?

Make your stand, or did you run?

 

Some folks spend a lifetime

In tall buildings reaching towards the sky

But they can come crashing down 

In the flickering of an eye

 

But that gold won’t make your memory

We’re only passing by

And it’s the simple words and acts of kindness

That truly are in short supply

 

No matter where you’re coming from 

 

When it’s all said and done

Where you true to number one?

Did you play your cards out on the table?

Make your stand, or did you run?

 

When it’s all said and done

Where you good to anyone?

Did you give your heart out for the taken?

Did you love, or did you run?

 

When it’s all said and done

Hard times will have gone and will have come

But when the darkness called your number

Did you do what must be done?

 

When it’s all said and done

Where you good to anyone?

Did you give your heart out for the taken?

Did you love, or did you run?
