Story Of John

PART 1: 

On a one night's stand it happened 
A new life started 
It wasn't meant to be 
It was a child that was not meant to be 

An unwanted child's innocent soul 
Became the centre for people's rage and hate 

LITTLE JOHN WHY ARE YOU BORN 
THERE SEEMS TO BE NO REASON TO LIVE AT ALL 
HATED AND REJECTED BY THE WORLD 
A LIFE THAT HAD BETTER BEEN LEFT UNHEARD 

PART 2: 

He struggled through the first grades of school 
Tried to get friends and get accepted there 
But no one wanted to know an unwanted child 
He became the centre of people's rage and hate 

Approaching the age fifteen 
His life has turned its wheel 
He tried to find truth but failed 
Like every other dream he had made 

LITTLE JOHN WHY ARE YOU BORN 
THERE SEEMS TO BE NO REASON TO LIVE AT ALL 
HATED AND REJECTED BY THE WORLD 
A LIFE THAT HAD BETTER BEEN LEFT UNHEARD 
LITTLE JOHN WHY ARE YOU BORN 
THERE SEEMS TO BE NO REASON TO LIVE AT ALL 
HATED AND REJECTED BY THE WORLD 
A LIFE THAT HAD BETTER BEEN LEFT UNHEARD 

He began to commit crimes to get rid of the life's pollution 
It gave him kicks and he thought this might the solution 
Everything seemed to turn alright 
He felt strength and great might 
Suddenly he became king in his hood 
And for the first time he felt in good mood 

Could this be the turning point? 
After seventeen years of living hell 
Could this be the answer of his wishing well? 

But one day all the hell broke loose 
He was doing one of his raids 
When all of a sudden he was discovered by a young maid 
Frightened to death he screamed to her "don't move"! 
But she answered with a horrifying yell 
John pulled the trigger and took an innocent life away 

Just nineteen years old 
His life was to the prison sold 
15 years was the time they said 
That was the price of that young maid 
But he felt that his life was already dead 
Since the beginning they had said 
You're not wanted here 
There's nobody who for you want to care 

LITTLE JOHN WHY ARE YOU BORN 
THERE SEEMS TO BE NO REASON TO LIVE AT ALL 
HATED AND REJECTED BY THE WORLD 
A LIFE THAT HAD BETTER BEEN LEFT UNHEARD 

PART 3: 

A couple of years came and went 
It was a living hell for John to see 
So when he got a rope he thought it was heaven sent 
Now he could end a life that was not meant to be 

As he attached the rope around his head 
He heard a heavenly voice who said 
"You are loved by me my boy 
Come to my open arms and I'll give you joy"

Without knowing what that meant 
John took off his rope and knelt to the ground 
He felt for the very first time that he has found 
A love so great and real 

A never ending journey started 
All that was in the past faded away 

JOHN YOU WERE BORN FOR A REASON 
BECAUSE I LOVED YOU FROM THE START 
I WANT TO WASH YOUR PAIN AWAY 
BECAUSE WITH ME YOU'RE ALWAYS ACCEPTED 

John had never felt this loved before 
And even if some troubles on his way still occurred 
He was now a different man 
And lived his life to spread the love to his fellow man 

After five years he was from prison released 
Became a preacher and from the bible he preached 

"YOU WERE BORN FOR A REASON 
BECAUSE GOD LOVED YOU FROM THE START 
HE WANTS TO WASH YOUR PAIN AWAY 
BECAUSE WITH HIM YOU'RE ALWAYS ACCEPTED"
