Never get tired of this song. It's important that we're close -- to the Most High. Regardless of what happen, on Him let's rely.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by your lover on the nearest Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Now that you are reading this don't stop. Post this on 5 songs in 143 minutes. Then press F6 and your lovers name will appear in big letters. This is so scary it actually works.
