LECRAE - Chase That Lyrics

Starting with hanging posters on my bedroom walls
To battle rappinÂ’ 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 donÂ’t blow up then maybe, IÂ’ll try the school thing
I went to college to do my family a favor
But I couldnÂ’t pick a major cause I wanted to be major
I tried sellin work, but it didnÂ’t work
So I worked, shopping center clerk, finna go berzerk
Lunch Break , see my writing 16Â’s over Micky DÂ’s
Skippin class, makin beats over 60 keys
And I love that, that even though IÂ’m just chasing
Selfish Ambition couldnÂ’t tell your boy NATHAN
Watch out all you rappers’ cause they finna let ‘Crae in
But I was sleepinÂ’ 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
IÂ’m livin for the Name
See life is just a picture
I see outside the frame
Im livin for a kingdom that I ainÂ’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 IÂ’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 heÂ’s feelinÂ’ consumed
By this never ending quest for glory he couldnÂ’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 shouldnÂ’t own
Instead of livin to make His name known
IÂ’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
IÂ’ll never be who I used to desperately want to be
IÂ’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 youÂ’re only focused on yourself thatÂ’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 moÂ’
I never even thought about whether the Lord approved
Call it selfish ambition
I call it, I'm makin moves

But history repeats itself
EvilÂ’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 FatherÂ’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?”
IÂ’ll tell you whats better, or better yet worse
Chasin your own glory by doin the LordÂ’s work
So holla if it hurts
But we were made for greater
Our greatest satisfaction is making His Name famous
So if weÂ’re never named among the greatest, (or) they donÂ’t critically acclaim us
AinÂ’t nothing to be ashamed of
We gave it up for the Savior

Chorus
