Lecrae - Background (feat. C-Lite)
From the album Rehab
(Chorus)I could play the backgroundI could play the background‘Cause I know sometimes I get in the waySo won't You take the lead, lead, leadSo won't You take the lead, lead, leadAnd I can play the background, the backgroundAnd You can take the leadIt's evident You run the show, so let me back downYou take the leading role, and I'll play the backgroundI know I miss my cues, know I forget my linesI'm sticking to Your script, and I'm reading all Your signsI don't need my name in lights, I don't need a starring roleAnd why gain the whole wide world, if I'm just gonna lose my soul?And my ways ain't purified, I'll don't live according to Your WordI can't endure this life without Your wisdom being heardSo word to every dancer for a pop star‘Cause we all play the background, but mine's a rockstarYeah, so if you need me I'll be stage rightPrayin' the whole world will start embracing stage frightSo let me fall back and stop giving my suggestions‘Cause when I follow my obsessions I end up confessin'That I'm not that impressive, matter of fact I'm who I are.A trail of stardust leading to the superstar(Chorus)I had a dream that I was captain of my soulI was master of my fate, lost control, and then I sankSo I don't want to take the lead‘Cause I'm prone to make mistakesAll these folks that follow me goin' end up in the wrong placeSo, just let me shadow You, and just let me trace Your lines.Matter of fact just take my pen, here, You create my rhymes‘Cause if I do this by myself, I'm scared that I'll succeedAnd no longer trust in You, ‘cause I only trust in me.And see, that's how you end up headed to destructionPaving a road to nowhere, pour your life out for nothingYou pulled my card, I'm bluffin', You know what's in my handMe, I just roll and trust You, You cause the dice to landI'm in control of nothin', follow You at any costSome call it sovereign will, all I know is You the bossAnd man I'm so at ease. I'm so contentI play the background like it's an instrument(Chorus)I know I'm safest when I'm in Your will and trust Your wordAnd I know I'm dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurredAnd I ain't got no time to play life's foolish gamesGot plenty aims, but do they really glorify Your name?And it's a shame the way I wanna do these things for You, yet,Don't even cling to You take time to sit and glean from YouIt seems that You were patient in my ignoranceIf ignorance is bliss, it's cause she never heard of this(Chorus X2)
