Lyrics

MISSION FROM GOD

(Ah ooh ah)
Met him on a highway late one night
He was movin' kinda fast
Head held low with a cautious eye
As he saw me drivin' past

He was limpin' along tryin' to get somewhere
Tryin' to hurry through the night
So I drove my car around feelin' somethin' strange
Somethin' really wasn't right.

He saw me stop
And he looked right through my soul
And I offered him a drink and he turned his head
He seemed to have a greater goal...

He ran away from me like a train on fire
And I could see that he'd been hurt
With a look in his eyes both brave and wise
As he ran off through the dirt.

I thought I had to be the one
to save him
From the blindness of the night
And a fear that greater trouble would find him soon
If I let him out of my sight

So I chased him hard as my bare feet ran his way
But I couldn't keep up and had to catch my breath
And then I thought I heard a voice say:

I'm on a Mission From God
And I don't expect that you will understand
I don't mean to be rude but He's needin' me right now

Though I plainly see that you are kind
Even though you think me odd
I've gotta go my way
On a Mission From God
(Ooh oh)

A few more joined me as I watched him run
Hoping he would turn around
So much faster than the feet of mortal men
As they flew upon the ground

Knew we were defeated, we were all outrun
I could see that he'd stopped too
Then we stood there tryin' to figure out
Somethin' more that we could do

But those words kept ringin' in my heart and through my head
And the silent sound that I could not ignore
As again I heard it said:

I'm on a Mission From God
and I don't expect that you will understand
I don't mean to be rude but He's needin' me right now

Though I plainly see that you are kind
Even though you think me odd
I've gotta go my way...

(Ooh hooh oh)

I had to respect his right to go
And I prayed that he'd be safe
The tears were fallin' faster than a raincloud burst
From a scared and scary place

He looked back only one more time
with a look that lingers on
And Lord, I swear he smiled at me
He wagged his tail
And he was gone

I wonder every day
just what became of him
As I've searched my mind since then
And I wandered down the streets
where we first met
Hoping we would meet again

I guess I'll never really know his truth
He just did what he had to do
And I know it in my heart no matter where you are
God is always with you.

On a Mission From God
And I don't expect that you will understand
I don't mean to be rude, but He's needin' me right now

Though I plainly see that you are kind
Even though you think me odd
I've gotta go my way...

I'm on a Mission From God
and I don't expect that you will understand
I don't mean to be rude but He's needin' me right now

Though I plainly see that you are kind
Even though you think me odd
I've gotta go His way
On a Mission From God
From God
On a Mission From God
Ooh...
