God's Love

V1

Another day alive and I’m feeling so empty

Clenching, death-squeeze onto these things that tempt me 

How much time have I given to the past? 

I originally had a bigger vision than a bag…ha

But don’t you just want to be happy?

Tracking, mapping, out a way to fill what’s lacking

Exactly, another shot might do it

Ya gotta eat and drink, another shot is fluid 

I’m losing, I’m not quite there 

I’m done what felt good, what’s up with the despair? 

Beware. No wait, I need more distractions

I’m adding applications to my apple like a madman

Strap in, I think I just see what happened

I look around and I created what I’m trapped in

Sky starts to clear up and I’m fascinated 

Look in the mirror image staring back is saying


Pre-Chrous 

I just want to be good. I just want to be good to ya. (Repeat 2x)

Chorus

And when you cry, you know that I cry too, but I’ll be good to you 

I just want to be good to ya.

And you smile, I’ll smile with you. I’ll be good to you, yea I’ll be good to you

V2

My feet are underneath me and I’m starting to move

Then future swooped into my mind: doomed.

Consumed, with everything, I have to do

A ride, on a way avenue that leaves me black and blue

A vacuum, because it sucks the life out me

And this anxiety? it paralyzes me 

Feeling like I can’t breathe even though 90% 

Of what I think about will not arrive to me

I let it go, I let in God 

Sensational, that burden’s gone

Look up and down, left-right, round the corner is something wrong?

No, there’s not – stop!! this is where you belong!

So what’s the catch? what’s the cost? 

Left hand full of cash, right hand a credit card 

It’s free to us yet there’s blood all over a cross

Dear God, would you please talk..


Pre-Chrous 

I just want to be good. I just want to be good to ya. (Repeat 2x)

Chorus

And when you cry, you know that I cry too, but I’ll be good to you

I just want to be good to you.

And you smile, I’ll smile with you. I’ll be good to you, yea I’ll be good to you

V3

We all want love, so we can call that the norm

The caveat? We want it in an alternate form 

The party lifestyle made me drop to the floor

And it had me all turned inside out and made my body contort  

With each step, I take a deep breathe then release it

Seems to be an immediate need for Jesus!

I want it on my watch; that’s not how it works 

I can’t take away the sun (Son) expect to hand you the earth! 

It’s obedience, without Him - meaningless

The good and bad wolf live inside of you which one are ya feeding man?!

It’s God’s love, it’s not only what he possesses

HE IS LOVE! Please come and get it!

Let Him be your north star, vessel, protection

Confession, the resurrection brings redemption!

He’s not the Easter Bunny he’s as real as it gets

Ask him for His love and He would say


Bridge 

I just wanna be good. I just wanna be good to ya. 

I’ll be good to you. I’ll be good to you (Repeat 2x) 

I just wanna be good. I just wanna be good to ya. (2x)


Chorus

And when you cry, you know that I cry too, but I’ll be good to you

I just want to be good to you.

And you smile, I’ll smile with you. I’ll be good to you, yea I’ll be good to you

Beauty

V1

To me, truly, beauty needs reviewing

Its half-amusing / half-confusing 

Now I have a duty to share this rap on beauty 

See something happened to me, so this rap’s ensuing

Beauty’s not a pageant, not just physical attraction

Beauty’s like a book, with a million different chapters

Beauty’s when you sit back and quit all that yappin 

Earn a smile from a child cuz you listened to him practice 

Beauty’s like my aunt, when she was 83 and dancing 

Talk about when I was younger baby stories got her laughing

Beautys not a fast benz, cash or some mansion

Beauty is the happiness that smashed the sadness

Beauty isn’t bragging about cheating death, that’s called being blessed

There’s a reason why that happens

You might not assent with the words I’m rapping 

I’m just taking a stab at purifying the madness!


Chorus 

Beauty is the happiness that smashed the sadness 

Beauty is the happiness that smashed the sadness

Beauty is the happiness that smashed the sadness

I’m just taking a stab at purifying the madness (repeat 2x) 

V2

Beauty’s like the strength and the patience of a father

That has to raise a daughter born with major health problems

Beauty’s when you’re down and out and ready to give up 

You get out of your slump prove everyone you’d overcome 

Beauty’s kinda like a talent, that you recognize 

But the only way that counts is that if you capitalize

Beauty is a heart that’s endured more than a few breaks 

Part ways, move on, fall in love with a new face

Beauty’s not being selfish, stop raving and ranting

Sacrifice a little bit to benefit your family 

When you’re standing in the storm just to take you to that place

Your body absorbs rain, that’s a form of escape 

That’s a beauty in itself let alone the change in weather

When the rain goes away, the son will come and make it better

I glance at my pregnant wife and it just moves me

Some days I think she’s beautiful yet now she’s full of beauty 


Chorus 

Beauty is the happiness that smashed the sadness 

Beauty is the happiness that smashed the sadness

Beauty is the happiness that smashed the sadness

I’m just taking a stab at purifying the madness (repeat 2x) 

V3

Beauty is a blind man with no dog or cane 

And he don’t know where he’ll go with the next step that he takes 

Could be standing on the edge of a never steady plank

One false move face first into the shark tank 

Whether he takes that step or not to ALL applies

Because you don’t know in life, if you don’t try

See he could be standing right in front his door of opportunity 

With one right step – it’ll open up so beautifully 

Beauty lies within, the eyes of the beholder 

It also lies within, those pair of eyes who showed ya 

That beauty gets deep like the center of the earth 

It’s the feathers to a bird, it’s the letters to these words

It’s the message from the Church, it’s the treasure from the search

It’s the several concerns from the sentimental burn

That you will receive from the lessons that you learn

I’ll always take the beauty, for better never worse. 


 Beat until fade out

About to bear crawl through this whole marathon, gonna run, till in my lungs, all the air’s gone

Feeling’s very strong, and it won’t wear off, howling at the moon like a werewolf

Where are the ones who squared off? They’re gone! Neck’s bobbin like rocker 

with his hair long, won’t dare stop, I’m on a tear y’all, like a bear paw 

Woo!!

Picks at my heart, hits as a thought, swims through my body 

With acquatic arms til it drifts to the bottom, sifts to the top, then it rips me a part!

Right here right now, push recording, when the load gets too heavy God will push it for me

Loyal to the bone put my vows on it, my team gonna need me to put the crown on ‘em

Look I ain’t leavin I ain’t walkin out on ‘em / I’m walking down the aisle on ‘em put a gown on ‘em

Woo!  Wait…..What?

You have been waitin for this part now the games about to start 

More pumped up than the chambers in your heart, scoring more points than Wilt Chamberlain’s arms 

Making more noise like we play w/ a gong, scream with our voice like we sang at bar 

We cannot stop like no breaks on a car, I was made for this day like clay out the jar!





Pre-Chorus

Beat until fades out

 

Can You See

Chorus

Can you feel it? Can you hear? 

Can you see? (2x) 


V1

Check the bio of this guy from Ohio Shevin Michael

Got a hunger to wipe out the rival like I am a rhino 

Ride to my home inside I’m alive in my bible

Eye balls are obsessed with the truth; took off the blindfold

Whose the enemy? This rival per se? its Satan 

I’ve been waiting, like I took his order then baked it

Made him an album, how come it’s not just secular?

Didn’t get back into the rap just for the heck of it

Genius of Satan is spreading the direction it’s headin 

Is getting tremendous momentum; and I want Heaven

World promotes oafs, a bunch of bogus show offs

I’m like “No Gosh! These kids gotta get to know God!”

Most of em care about money, sex and power that’s it

That’s hypocritical of me to make a blanket statement 

I just wished I saw more people with this type of influence 

Speak of the fruits of the Christian movement right to the consumer 

Hell and Heaven are real, you think when you die you just vanish?

Like a poof of smoke, what are the chances?

Ignore, the glitz and the glamour, the clicks from the camera 

Reach your arm out to God, like you’re picking bananas, It’s time

Chorus

Can you feel it? Can you? Can you hear? Can you?

Can you see? Don’t miss the forest through the trees

Can you feel it? Cmon. Can you hear? Cmon!

Can you see? (2x) 


V2

Get to know God it’s necessary not secondary 

Eventually your buried and your eternity carries 

The hope that you get, once you know He exists 

Only get,s holier with, the more you give in!

But our God’s a loving God, you have to make a choice 

Look it’s not real love if a relationship’s forced

So how do you get to know Him? Where do you start? 

Close your eyes, fold your hands, and share from your heart

This is prayer, Satan hates it when you go spiritually there 

Satan hates love and life, and prayer is fresh air 

An encounter between you and the Author of Life

Is God listening? Yes - all of the time!

Father of Lies will distract you, he’ll crawl by your side

You start a diet, he’s handing you the chocolate pie

God is alive stronger than all of the fallen combined, 

Body of Christ conquered death, the Cross is your guide! It’s time

Chorus

Can you feel it? Can you? Can you hear? Can you?

Can you see? Don’t miss the forest through the trees

Can you feel it? Cmon. Can you hear? Cmon!

Can you see? (2x) yea that’s good, right there, perfect


V3

Don’t think God is real? Ask Him to reveal Himself to you.

Pray that prayer all the time, and then just watch what He’ll do.

Your relationship with God to be real will be tough 

You’ll have these crazy ups and downs at points you’ll wanna give up

That’ll happen, just remember when you write down your goals 

You’ll have a plan, yet God might have a plan of His own

See my mom used to tell me when I got cut and it hurt

She’d pour the medicine on it and say “if it burns that means it works”

(Woo!) Find joy in pain, look at your own life without it

I mean this is what your character is shaped out of

Only with the right perspective if not the pain will consume you 

See the culture takes pain and paints it like its voodoo

Unplanned pregnancy? “you don’t want that pain”; Kill him 

You’re old and you’re weak? “have you thought suicide”; Kill him!

Again Jesus wants life, the devil wants death

This is me “keeping it real” so lets not pretend, It’s time!


Chorus

Can you feel it? Can you? Can you hear? Cmon.

Can you see? Don’t miss the forest through the trees

Can you feel it? Cmon. Can you hear? Cmon!

Can you see? (2x)
