LECRAE

LECRAE - Just Like You

rate me

(Hook- J. Paul)

I just wanna be like you,

Walk like, talk like, even think like you

The only one I could look to

You're teaching me to be just like you

Well I just gotta be like,

I just gotta be like you

(Verse 1- Lecrae)

Dear, Uncle Chris, Uncle Keith, Uncle Ricky,

Before the Lord get me, I gotta say something quickly

I grew up empty since my daddy wasn't with me, shoot,

I wasn't picky I'd take any male figure you

Stepped in at the right time,

It's 'cuz of you that I write rhymes

You probably never knew that

I loved the way you used to come through,

Teach me to do the things that men do

True,

You showed me stuff I probably shouldn't have seen,

But you had barely made it out your teens,

Took me under your wings

I wanted hats, I wanted clothes just like you,

Lean to the side when I rolled just like you

Didn't care if people didn't like you,

You wanna bang, I wanna bang too

Skyline, pyru

If you would've died, I would've died too,

You went to prison, got sick, lost your pops,

Yeah, I cried too

You never know who's right behind you,

I gotta a little son now and he do whatever I do

But it's something deep inside you,

That tell you it's gotta be more than doing what other guys do,

They had nobody there to guide you

But I followed your footsteps and this shouldn't surprise you,

You realize you, You realize you, you,

Yeah,

(Hook)

I just wanna be like you,

Walk like, talk like, even think like you

The only one I could look to,

You're teaching me to be just like you

Well I just gotta be like,

I just gotta be like you

(Verse 2)

Now all I see is money, cars, jewels,

Stars

Womanizers, tough guys, guns, knives, and scars,

Drug pushers, thugs, strippers, fast girls, fast life

Everything I wanted and everything I could ask life

If this ain't living and they lied well,

I guess I married an old wives' tale

Wow, fail

I don't know another way to go,

This is the only way they ever showed

I got this emptiness inside that got me fighting for approval because I missed out on my daddy saying, way to go,

Ain't get that verbal affirmation or know how to treat a woman,

Know how to fix an engine,

To keep the car running

So now I'm looking at the media and following what they feed me,

Rap stars, trap stars,

Whoever wants to lead me

Even though they lie they still tell me that they love me,

They say I'm good at bad things at least they proud of me

(Hook)

I just wanna be like you,

Walk like, talk like, even think like you

The only one I could look to

You're teaching me to be just like you

Well I just gotta be like,

I just gotta be like you

(Like you)

(Verse 3)

I was created by God but I ain't wanna be like Him,

I wanna be Him

The Jack Sparrow of my Caribbean

I remember the first created being,

And how he shifted the blame on his dame

For fruit he shouldn't have eaten,

And now look at us all out of Eden,

Wearing designer fig leaves by Louis Vuitton

Make-believing

But God sees through my foolish pride,

And how I'm weak like Adam, another victim of Lucifer's lies

But then in steps Jesus,

All men were created to lead but we needed somebody to lead us

More than a teacher,

But somebody to buy us back from the darkness,

You can say He redeemed us,

Taught us that real leaders follow God,

Finish the work 'cuz we on our job

Taught us not to rob

But give life, love a wife like He loved the Church,

Without seeing how many hearts we can break first

I wanna be like you in every way,

So if I gotta die everyday

Unworthy sacrifice

But the least I can do is give the most of me

Because being just like you is what I'm s'pose to be

They said you came for the lame,

I'm the lamest

I made a mess, but you say you'll erase it,

I'll take it

They say you came for the lame,

I'm the lamest

I broke my life, but you say you'll replace it,

I'll take it.

(I just gotta be like... be like... be like... I just gotta be like you...I just gotta be like you)<br />
