Need a Favor by Jelly Roll is a poignant and introspective track that delves into themes of personal struggle, redemption, and the yearning for forgiveness. The lyrics reflect a deep sense of remorse and self-awareness as the artist grapples with his own shortcomings and the consequences of his actions.


 


[Verse 1]
I know amazin' grace, but I ain't been livin' them words
Swear I spend most Sundays
Drunk off my ass than I have at church
Hard cover King James
Only been savin' dust on the nightstand
And I don't know what to say
By the time I fold my hands


 


In the opening verse, Jelly Roll acknowledges his familiarity with the concept of "amazing grace" but admits to not fully embodying those principles in his own life. He contrasts the traditional Sunday routine of attending church with his own struggles, often finding solace in alcohol instead of religious practices. The reference to the "hard cover King James" and the dust on the nightstand suggests neglect and a disconnect from spiritual teachings.


 


[Verse 2]
Yeah, I owe you more than one
And beggars can't be choosers
But I'll pay for all I've done
Just pleasе don't let me lose hеr


 


The second verse highlights a sense of indebtedness and a recognition of past mistakes. The artist acknowledges that he owes more than one apology and expresses a willingness to make amends. The line "beggars can't be choosers" implies a humbled acceptance of his position, acknowledging that he may not have much leverage in seeking forgiveness.

I only talk to God when I need a favor
And I only pray when I ain't got a prayer

But, God, I need a favor

And I don't know what to say
By the time I fold my hands

[Chorus]
I only talk to God when I need a favor
And I only pray when I ain't got a prayer
So who the hell am I, who the hell am I to expect a savior, oh
If I only talk to God when I need a favor?
But, God, I need a favor

[Post-Chorus]
Amen, amen

{Bridge}
Hangin' in there just barely
Throwin' up prayers like Hail Marys
If You're still there, Lord, spare me
Oh, my God, oh, my God, Hail Mary
Hangin' in there just barely
Throwin' up prayers like Hail Marys
If You're still there, Lord, spare me
Oh, my God, oh, my God, Hail Mary

I only talk to God when I need a favor
And I only pray when I ain't got a prayer
So tell me, who the hell am I to expect a savior

Amen
God, I need a favor
Woah
