The Lyrics

This is based on the long version, not the radio version. This is not supposed to be funny. This is an enthusiastic, recently-saved guy trying to get his ex-girlfriend saved. (Can we say "real love"?)
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo
I'm back and I'm praying, I'm smiling
I'm living, I'm growin', I live for God
Since He died for me
Ovation, I've got motivation
God came down and shed his blood for me
And it makes me smile
I've new love for you
Do everything you wanna do
Satan wants ya to
Keep on sinning and he'll get you
Must stop, cover ground or you will fall through
Cuz I speak to you with a Bible and a verse
Jesus wasn't lyin' when He told ya you were cursed
Sleeping with the enemy, time to wake
Get rid of those drugs you take, I said

I've got something else
To get you through this
Temporary mortal life, baby, baby
I've got something else
I'm not listening when you say
Good-bye
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo

I'm back, behold, my love grows
As I'm walking down the path that I chose
And I wish you would go with me
It's no myth, see
Salvation's a free gift you can take
Doing crystal meth
Will mess you up until you break
You must stop, you must get saved, join the flock
Get redemption while there's still time left on the clock
Because you're messed up
You're full of sin the way you're livin'
Must be born again
You must be born again, I said
What am I supposed to do
I don't know how else to convince you
Don't you recall what I went through
The time when I said

I've got something else to get me through this
Temporary mortal life, baby, baby
I've got something else
I'm not listening when you say
Good-bye

I believe that our blessed Saviour rose
From the dead, He's healing and Satan's stealing
I believe and my faith just grows
Now there's hope when I look towards the sky
Now that I'm saved I'm not afraid to die
Cuz I will be all right, all right

But you're in pain again
Your psyche is crashing
You're crying, you're sad, it's a pity cuz I
For the first time feel alive but you're still struggling to survive
These days you're despairing, you're life's a mess
You're a sinner, you must confess
You better start praying cuz life's a test
You can get salvation now
Cuz it's not a process -
And God's holy, and you're broken
Still He took time to die for you, give Him credit now
I was lost, but now I am found
Not scared, I'm not going down, no no
Cuz I've got eternal life
Born twice and die once, born once and die twice
So I will be all right, all right

There is nothing else
That gives eternal life, baby
Please don't go to hell
Not leaving till you say
I'll try
I'll try
I'll try
I'll try
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

I'm back, behold, my love grows
As I'm walking down the path that I chose
And I hope you will go with me someday
Up there to the place where God resides
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo
There is nothing else
