I Know The Key



I Know The Key


Jonathan Pitts


Some wonder why their dreams will not fly

Some wonder why they stop and they cry


Some wonder why they just cannot win

Some wonder why they just can't stop sin


The patterns unhealthy, they just cannot stop

The patterns so stealthy, they can't see the top


I lose and I lose, why Lord oh why

I refuse I refuse, to just look and stand by


Give me an answer, my Father and King

Tell me right now, what's causing this thing


This thing that just seems, to trip me on up

This thing that continues, to shake my heart up


Why can't I win, Why Lord oh why

Hear me my Father, please answer my cry



The Lord's answer:


I'll tell you my child, of why you don't win

I'll tell you my child, of your secret sin


Never you thought that there was this thing

That kept you from living, your voice cannot sing


Oh, you can go forth, and seem like you're good

Dancing and prancing as all think you should


You speak with such boldness, with confidence true

Yet I still have an issue, an issue with you


You go off to work, to earn all your pay

You still swim in debt, that you cannot repay


Even though you're rich, with money abound

I see you as poor, you can't hear my sound


Even though you sing, you preach and you pray

I cannot receive a single word you say


I have this one issue, this issue that keeps

Keeps you from growing, in the areas deep


Deep in my presence, my glory divine

If you'll receive it, I show you a sign



The response:


My Lord, yes my Lord, I'll truly receive

I just cannot do this, I just can't believe


That everything fails, even though that it seems

To everyone else, that I should be esteemed


You say there's an issue, what kind would you say

Would keep me from flying, and going my way


What sin is so deep, that I cannot see

That's holding me back, from being free


I'm open my Father, to hear what you say

I'm open I'm open, please tell me I pray



God's Answer:


So you say that you're ready, to hear what I know

You say that ready, for me to show


To show you your issue, that keeps you so bound

To show you your issue, that lingers around


Like a horrible stench, that I cannot remove

It stinks, oh it stinks, Child it must move


Open your eyes and look at your heart

Do you realize, that's where everything starts


Every issue every problem, it's not from outside

But inside your heart, that's where it resides


This issue that's there, it stems from your pride

I can't even stare, It's on every side


Black, oh so black, where red use to be

Dark, oh so dark, I hope that you'll see


The sins in your life, have everything to do

With the mountainous cavern from this one issue


See some people wonder, they wonder why

They cannot stop evil, how hard they do try


But I'll tell you this thing and it is the key

FORGIVENESS my child, is the issue, now see



The response:



Could it not be my money or some other guy


Some other person, who I could just blame

For causing some problem, its me just the same


My heart it is black, black with the stain

The stain of my hatred for my past and my pain


I tell you of this, this that you know

That people, yes people, they hurt me so


Some lied and some cheated, some left me alone

Some when I cried, they would not condone


Some when I won, they hated me so

Some when I lost, cheered for what they know


Some that I loved, rejected my heart

I loved them and loved them, but they left me to start


All by myself, with pain in my side

They left me they left me, in you I'll confide


Some did me wrong, they should have known better

I thought that they knew, we're better together


So why Lord oh why, should I FORGIVE

When I think they should die, don't let them live


They hurt me they hurt me, and do not deserve

To hear me or see me, throw them a curve


I hope that you hurt them and hate all them too

Did you see what they did, I even see what they do


The snicker and smile at my hurt and my pain

I hope its a while before they laugh ever again


Cause their life pain, leave them alone

Never regain, the love you have shown


I hate them I hate them, send forth your wrath

Once you have done this, I'll stand and I'll laugh


Saying, that's what you get, you snake in the grass

And when you pass on, I'll be glad that you passed


Don't take them to Heaven, oh no, that's too good

Send them to dwell where demons like them should


FORGIVE? You say FORGIVE? I will when you kill

The life that you gave them, that's when I will



God Says:


See this my child? Do you see what I see?

The black in your heart, this can never please me


But before you send judgment about what they did

Perhaps I can remind you of the sin that you did


I love and I live to give you my all

I love you and give, my name you can call


All I've ever done, is love you you'll see

Yet you did the worst . . . You left me


Whenever you sin, you take all my love

And throw it away, forgetting me above


I sent my Son Jesus, to take all the pain

That you should have taken, you should feel shame


I FORGAVE YOU! So what makes you think

That I won't require that you remove the stink


The stink of your PRIDE, your SIN, and your LUST

I refuse to chide and I won't make a fuss


If you won't FORGIVE, then this is my word

You'll never win, you be stuck by your words


You say that you won't let go, then leave it at that

You'll live life in circles, until you face facts


Your feet will not move, no matter how high

Others esteem you, you'll never fly


You'll fall and you'll fail, never to see

Your heart just like mine, this I can't receive


The black of your heart, has only one key

You must FORGIVE, or you'll never see


Release child release, your pain unto me

And I will not cease, to see that you're free


Free from your past, free from your hurt

Free from the stain, the stain of the dirt


I'll clean you up, if you will receive

I'll change your heart, if you will believe



The Repenter's Response:


In tears I reply, the truth it does sting

But I won't descry, unless your song I will sing



My pain, yes my pain, I now cut the leash


That tied me to hurt, the hurt from my past

And people that left, I will not crash


My path is unsteady, unless I FORGIVE

If I give you my heart, then truly I'll live


You FORGAVE me for the sin that I did

So I'll FORGIVE them, your words I will bid


By your sweet blood, my black heart is red

Ready to love, and see what you said


The release is so sweet, I feel oh so free

I can now fly . . .
