I need a Doctor
Dr. Dre Lyrics


I'm about to lose my mind
You've been gone for so long, I'm runnin' out of time
I need a doctor, call me a doctor
I need a doctor, doctor
To bring me back to life

I told the world, one day I would pay it back
Say it on tape, and lay it, record it so that one day I could play it back
But I don't even know if I believe it when I'm sayin' that
Doubts startin' to creep in, every day, it's just so grey and black
Hope, I just need a ray of that, 'cause no one sees my vision
When I play it for 'em, they just say it's wack, they don't know what dope is
And I don't know if I was awake or asleep when I wrote this
All I know is you came to me when I was at my lowest
You picked me up, breathed new life in me, I owe my life to you
But for the life of me, I don't see why you don't see like I do
But it just dawned on me you lost a son, demons fighting you, it's dark
Let me turn on the lights and brighten me and enlighten you
I don't think you realize what you mean to me, not the slightest clue
'Cause me and you were like a crew, I was like your sidekick
You gon' either wanna fight me when I get off this fuckin' mic
Or you gon' hug me, but I'm outta options, there's nothin' else I can do 'cause

I'm about to lose my mind
You've been gone for so long, I'm runnin' out of time
I need a doctor, call me a doctor
I need a doctor, doctor
To bring me back to life

It hurts when I see you struggle, you come to me with ideas
You say they're just pieces, so I'm puzzled, 'cause the shit I hear is crazy
But you're either gettin' lazy or you don't believe in you no more
Seems like your own opinions, not one you can form
Can't make a decision, you keep questionin' yourself
Second guessin' and it's almost like your beggin' for my help
Like I'm your leader, you're supposed to fuckin' be my mentor
I can endure no more I demand you remember who you are
It was you, who believed in me when everyone was tellin'
You don't sign me, everyone at the fuckin' label, let's tell the truth
You risked your career for me, I know it as well as you
Nobody wanted to fuck with the white boy, Dre, I'm cryin' in this booth
You saved my life, now maybe it's my turn to save yours
But I can never repay you, what you did for me is way more
But I ain't givin' up faith and you ain't givin' up on me
Get up, Dre, I'm dyin', I need you, come back for fuck's sake

I'm about to lose my mind
You've been gone for so long, I'm runnin' out of time
I need a doctor, call me a doctor
I need a doctor, doctor
To bring me back to life
Bring me back to life
Bring me back to life
I need a doctor, doctor
To bring me back to life

It literally feels like a lifetime ago
But I still remember the shit like it was just yesterday, though
You walked in, yellow jump suit, whole room, cracked jokes
Once you got inside the booth, told you, mic smoke
Went through friends, some of them I put on, but they just left
They said they was ridin' to the death, but where the fuck are they now?
Now that I need them, I don't see none of them
All I see is Slim, fuck all you fair-weather friends, all I need is him
Fuckin' backstabbers, when the chips were down you just laughed at us
Now you 'bout to feel the fuckin' wrath of Aftermath, faggots
You gon' see us in our lab jackets and ask us where the fuck we been?
You can kiss my indecisive ass crack, maggots
And the crackers' ass, little cracker jack beat
Makin' wack math, backwards producers, I'm back bastards
One more CD and then I'm packin' up my bags and as I'm leavin'
I guarantee they'll scream, "Dre, don't leave us like that man" 'cause

I'm about to lose my mind
You've been gone for so long, I'm runnin' out of time
I need a doctor, call me a doctor
I need a doctor, doctor
To bring me back to life

Jesus is God

Are you saved? If not, "REPENT YE, AND BELIEVE THE GOSPEL."

THE GOSPEL (which means the Good News) is the news that God Almighty, the Creator came in the flesh as Jesus Christ to take away the sin of the world. He gave up his own life to save ours. His sacrifice on the cross paid the price for our redemption with his own blood. On the third day he rose from dead and offers the gift of salvation and forgiveness to those that repent and trust in him.

John 1:1,14 KJV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD. [14] And THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us,

Isaiah 9:6 KJV
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty GOD, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

John 1:10 KJV
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and THE WORLD KNEW HIM NOT.

John 20:28-29 KJV
And Thomas answered and said unto him, MY LORD AND MY GOD. [29] Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Are you saved friend? If you died tonight will you go to heaven or hell?

Acts 16:30-31 KJV
...what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

1 John 1:8-10 KJV
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. [9] If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. [10] If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

Luke 24:47 KJV
And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Acts 4:12 KJV
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Jesus is God

@Tristan Rob
To say that God is not real is to say that he does not exist. Do you really need this explaining to you?

Isaiah 44:6 KJV
Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

There is no other God. Yet people will make idols for themselves and call them gods. That is what the Bible is describing. It is not affirming them to be gods.

1 Chronicles 16:26 KJV
For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.



Jesus is God

@Tristan Rob
The creation tells you that there is a Creator just as a building tells you that there is a builder. This why God calls atheists fools without excuse.

This is my challenge to anyone denying intelligent design. To go away and create an elephant from scratch. If that is to hard, create a smaller animal like a bear, horse, or a tiger. Again if that is too hard create something smaller like a fish, bird or spider. Again if that is too hard, create an apple seed from scratch. No one can take from preexisting trees anything. The tree seed must be created from scratch by the one who denies intelligent design. I want the atheists to create their very own seed without taking anything from any other existing trees since that would be cheating. No, the atheist must make their very own seed that will produce a tree.

No atheist can say they lack the intelligence to make any of these as an excuse because their religion of atheism says that THERE WAS NO INTELLIGENCE behind making them. So there is no excuse.

The truth of the matter is this. Whilst atheists deny creation was intelligently designed, they cannot create any of it themselves. So what conclusion do they reach? They conclude that because in their intelligence they cannot create any of these things, it must have happened with no intelligence behind them, instead of accepting the obvious that someone more intelligent created them.

Romans 1:18-22 KJV
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; [19] Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. [20] For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: [21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

I dont feel so good

Khelisie Salvatore

@The Adam Ra Thank you so much. I'm trying to go to California to see if my body bounces back. I have fibromyalgia which isn't contagious but it's a progressive pain disease. But I live in Florida now & the humidity kills me in 2012 i was out there on vaca and was 70% better. I used to be a musical theater performer Dance sing & act but dance makes me feel the most alive so that's what Cali is calling me for. Unfortunately I'm on disability but have the money to get out there if my body responds the way it did looking for a place to live😊if not back to Florida and try and come up with something that makes me feel alive. Thank you for the blessings I need every one of them.
