LECRAE - Gotta Know

rate me

(You just gotta know)

You ever feel like life just comin' at ya a million miles an hour?

(You just gotta know)

You just gotta know

Somebody's holdin' it all together

Life is like an elevator, a lot of ups and downs

People pushin' your buttons and gettin' jerked around

I used to lurk around town tryin' to work around

Workin' so that I could hit the ground with the perfect sound

Even perfect sound sounds like work

When you spend your time flirtin' with the crown in the perp

I was bound for Berzerk with a layover in Crazy,

Got lazy Jay-Z hopin' rocker fellas paid me

Or rockin' ladies were caught me a Mercedes

But that whole dream was in ‘80's baby

Missed that shot like the cop that's crooked

TV goes off, third eye still lookin'

Mom still cookin', I can always go home

Even though I'm five years past grown (five years past grown)

Here I go again, I'm still chasin' the wind, I can't win

When it gets hot, it boils down to sin

If Heaven ain't a gift, then I ain't getting' in (man)

I can't even find the words for the way I feel

So I paint a picture, I paint a picture

I've been goin' down this road, seen some crazy things

So I paint a picture, you gots to see it

You just gotta know

You just gotta know

You just gotta know

You just gotta know

(Yeah) I sit and hear the guitars play,

Wonder if they could, what would stars say or Venus and Mars say

Or say that we want it our way,

Stars so desperate to shine that they go on livin' the hard way

The intellect to travel to Mars but so blind,

We worship Venus but she don't even know who we are

And she never cared why cuz she wasn't there

When I was tryin' to drown my sorrows in a pool of despair

I ain't perfect, sometimes I feel worthless,

Worth less than that is the image that I'da purchased

Man, from the shades to the shirt to the shoes,

Just another fool tryin' to cover he's confused, that ain't cool

Sometimes I hate the man in the mirror

Cuz I know he's a liar and a cheater and a killer

People say they love him but they love what he can give 'em,

But deep inside he knows that there's a reason for him livin'

I can't even find the words for the way I feel

So I paint a picture, I paint a picture

I've been goin' down this road, seen some crazy things

So I paint a picture, you gots to see it

You just gotta know

You just gotta know

You just gotta know

You just gotta know

(Uh) You know I need you like aqua,

Day without ya got me so nauseous,

If I ain't cautious, I'm gonna self-inflict my sickness

You know it's true, you as my witness

At how you witness my inconsistence

Yes, the ovation when I need your assistance

And I just gotta know that even though I'm a misfit

I'm still worth more than calamity's French kiss

Yes I'm loved, and I'm pursued

And though I can't feel it, still I know that it's true

Somebody woke me up, and yeah, I know it was you

And yet I keep tryin' to steer clear of your view

Cuz if you get me, I know that you got me

But I'm so insecure I can't believe that you want me

But then I heard you went on your way to adopt me

Well you can have my all if you swear you won't drop me

Cuz I gotta know (yeah)

You just gotta know (gotta know, gotta know)

You just gotta know (gotta know, gotta know that it's real)

You just gotta know (gotta know, gotta know that it's real)

You just gotta know (hey, hey, gotta know that it's real)

You just gotta know (gotta know, gotta know)

You just gotta know (gotta know, gotta know that it's real)

You just gotta know (gotta know, gotta know that it's real)

You just gotta know (hey, hey, gotta know that it's real)<br />
