LECRAE

LECRAE - Chase That

rate me

Starting with hanging posters on my bedroom walls

To battle rappin’ for status up in the school halls

Just call me double sushi, thought I was to raw

And hip hop was my home I had my shoes off

6’3” in high school, well skip a hoop dream

If I don’t blow up then maybe, I’ll try the school thing

I went to college to do my family a favor

But I couldn’t pick a major cause I wanted to be major

I tried sellin work, but it didn’t work

So I worked, shopping center clerk, finna go berzerk

Lunch Break , see my writing 16’s over Micky D’s

Skippin class, makin beats over 60 keys

And I love that, that even though I’m just chasing

Selfish Ambition couldn’t tell your boy NATHAN

Watch out all you rappers’ cause they finna let ‘Crae in

But I was sleepin’ on the Son like Days Inn

Bridge

And you can have the money

And you can have the fame

But me I want the Glory

I’m livin for the Name

See life is just a picture

I see outside the frame

Im livin for a kingdom that I ain’t never seen

Chorus

And imma imma chase that

Glory imma chase that

Found the key to life and best believe that imma play that (Glory)

Glory imma chase that

Imma imma chase that

Glory imma chase that

Imma imma chase that

I remember chasin the green feelin blue

Only check I’m countin is the mic check, one two

All I wanted was the money and the fame and the new

Somebody on my arm when I walk inside the room

All I wanted was doom

The same kind Alexander the Great felt, when the Earth ran out of room

He conquered all he could, but yet he’s feelin’ consumed

By this never ending quest for glory he couldn’t fuel

Like a typical fool, I would go hard

Shootin for the moon

But there only one Son , no Co-star

Chasin glory I shouldn’t own

Instead of livin to make His name known

I’m runnin after his throne

I thought bein on TV, where everybody could see me

Was nothing short of the easiest way I could see to please me

I’ll never be who I used to desperately want to be

I’m too worried bout the Lord getting credit instead of me

And you can have the money

and you can have the fame

But me i want the glory

I'm livin for His name

see life is just picture

i see outside the frame

I'm livin for a kingdom

that i ain't eva seen

Yeah and imma chase that

glory imma chase that

found the key to life

and best believe that imma chase that

glory imma chase that

Imma imma chase that

glory imma chase that

imma imma chase that

I use to wanna do it big

When you’re only focused on yourself that’s small

And they, they use to tell me as a kid

That I could do anything that I want except fall

And now that I recall

I was chasing my goals

And every time I caught them they multiplied into mo’

I never even thought about whether the Lord approved

Call it selfish ambition

I call it, I'm makin moves

But history repeats itself

Evil’s what it is

Cause Lucifer was cast away for doing what I did

Created by the God who spoke the Earth into existence

Instead of chasing the Father’s glory he was chasin his

He lies to us all

Told Adam he could ball

“Why you followin’ God when you could go get it all?”

I’ll tell you whats better, or better yet worse

Chasin your own glory by doin the Lord’s work

So holla if it hurts

But we were made for greater

Our greatest satisfaction is making His Name famous

So if we’re never named among the greatest, (or) they don’t critically acclaim us

Ain’t nothing to be ashamed of

We gave it up for the Savior

Chorus
