Flame

Flame - Alive

rate me

[Intro:]

Yeah... Uh

I just want to talk to you for a minute man

See I want you to know what God has done in my life

And I want you to know that he can do the same thing for you

Talk to Him

The Lord has spared me from a lot of different things man

Listen

[Verse 1:]

Remember it like it was yesterday, had to get up out my school

Cause them dudes they ran up and they lookin' for me with them [?]

The principal didn't even trip, security didn't trip

So I had to secure my safety makin' me have to dip

So I hit that highway takin' 70 to 55

Heading off to South County now

From the hood that's a long drive

Now I'm at this new school ready to study and drink

Hopin' somebody would trip, ready to bloody a fist

But that's just orientation, so I'm gonna slow my roll

Plus I see this girl I like and hopin' I get to know

So we hit the whip again, now we head back to the hood

But I got this feeling we ain't chilling it, ain't nothing good

Then I see this truck on our side like it's 'bout to pass

But I look up and guess what? We about to crash

Next we collide, 'bout to die, I can't even yell,

Only thing I'm thinking is I'm about to go to heaven

[Hook:]

Jesus snatched me out death, see it was 1999

I ain't livin for myself I'm realizing I ain't mine

I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

[Repeat]

[Verse 2:]

Me and my white kicks hit the road,

Hop to the whip to get to Saint Lou

We didn't know what was 'bout to unfold

What up? Tell it, everything cool

So we ridin' down the highway, right

What's the time of the day? Night

Everything is ok, right

Plus we make time to pray, nice

Then we get to the STL

Drop my wife off to get some z's

Pop the kickin' with Json and Stefan and [?]

We decide to walk through the store

It's four of us so we know we cool

Then we seein' this car passin' us by stoppin' it made a U (ahhh)

Json like, man who's this trip?

Man you trippin' let's just proceed

All the way back from the store we smell the smoke of the potent weed

But ain't nobody out until we hear that voice tell us "stay there"

[?] 5's, 9's, get on the ground

Now we see them barrels wavin', life flash before our eyes

If his finger slip all 4 of us is moving on

All I'm thinking is Lord if this is how the story goes

I'll be fine 'cause in '99 Jesus saved my soul

[Hook:]

Jesus snatched me out death, see it was 1999

I ain't livin for myself I'm realizing I ain't mine

I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

[Repeat]

[Verse 3:]

Everything I did then I was tripping off of people

I was living for my friends but my heart was really evil

I was worshiping my money, I was worshiping my shoes,

Wasn't thinking about my soul, worshiping girls in the school

I was living for myself like I was stuck in a rut

And I couldn't get up like I was cut in the gut

I was bleeding from my side and I didn't wanna fix the wound

You see I thought I was alive, I was chilling with my crew

I was holding on to sin like it was my baby daughter

Baby boy, I was deceived, it was leading me to the slaughter

Wasn't thinking about Jesus, wasn't thinking about the curse,

Wasn't thinkin' bout the fall, wasn't thinking about this verse

I was thinkin' bout nothing but myself in those days

What it took Jesus Christ to get Himself out the grave

And 2000 years later He got me out the grave

Now I'm rapping on this mic to see you out the grave

[Hook:]

Jesus snatched me out death, see it was 1999

I ain't livin for myself I'm realizing I ain't mine

I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive

[Repeat]

[Outro:]

Tryin to set you free man. I wanna see you as a free man.

You feeling me?

If you on the run, stop running man.

Yeah... that's real talk
