All He Could Pay  (Words by Nkechi, Music by Nkechi & R. Easson)

With his head in his arms, he'd traveled way too far
To make it back home in just one day
With nothing left, he had to hold his ground
Staying away was all he could pay

All he could pay
A quiet night, Nothing left

With his knees to the ground, he'd been there times before
Taking not asking was how he'd always prayed
This time was different, he was tired inside
"Help me, Lord please", was all he could say

All he could say
A lonely night, Nothing left

With his heart melting he'd never cried like this
Living on ice had finally taken its toll
With tears for years, he was bared to the core
Naked and hopeful, with a warming soul

A warming soul,
All he could say
Now he could pray
And he could stay away

A quiet night left with nothing more to prove
He had done all that he could do
Now this world was nothing new

His warming heart gets another chance at life
‘Cuz he had finally paid the price
Now his old soul was made whole

With his head in his arms, he’d travelled way too far
To make it back home in just one day
With tears for years, he was bared to the core
Staying away was all he could pay
