03. You Then Me

God
by Rebecca St. James



 

It's my turn, it's not your turn
It's my turn, get outta my way
It's my turn, go on complain
I'm comin' through anyway
Don't ask me why I'm like this
But lately I'm wonderin' if
It'll come to pass
That the last shall be first and the first shall be last
Then the voice says…

Chorus:

Here's the way it oughta be
You then me then you then me
Well, I pray one day we'll all agree
And take it you then me then you then me
Life could go you then methen you then me

It's easy, you wait then go
It's easy, you make your move
It's easy, don't clown around
Could've gone six times by now
But no sir, you gotta be a pain
Or this is your own way of sayin'
We should all cool down
And be more like the man who was born back in Bethlehem town?
I betcha He'd say…

Chorus

If we could only put You first
Maybe this ugly trend could one day be reversed

It's your turn, it's not my turn
It's your turn- well let's just say
We'll trade off- first you then me
Then after that, we might agree

Let's try it, it could be good
And what if one day it should
Really come to pass
That the last shall be first and the first shall be last
Betcha we'd say…

Chorus

Behind the Song:
'I believe that one of the biggest challenges in life is overcoming selfishness. I think that's why Jesus stressed over and over to us the importance of serving others. He said, 'So you want first place? Then take last place. Be the servant of all.' (Mark 9:35-- The Message)' - Rebecca St. James
