Posted: October 13, 2010 in Uncategorized

This track is called, “Background”. It’s from Lecrae’s 4th album, Rehab. You can pick it up at Reach Records. Just follow the link on the left. Grace and Peace.


I can play the background (2x)
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So won’t you take lead
And I can play the background

Verse 1

It’s evident you run the show/ so let me back down/ you take the leading role and I’ll just play the background/ I know I miss my cues/ know I forget my lines/ I’m stickin to your script/ I’m reading all your signs/ I don’t need my name in lights/ I don’t need a staring role/ why gain the whole wide world/ If I’m just gone lose my soul/ My ways ain’t pure if I don’t live according to your word/ I cant endure this life without your wisdom being heard/ so word/ to every dancer for a pop star/ Cause we all play the background/but mine’s a rock star/ yeah / so if you need I’ll be stage right/ praying the world would start embracing stage fright / So let me fall back/ stop given my suggestions/ cuz when I follow my obsessions/ I end up confessin/ that I am not impressive/ matter fact I’m who I are/ a trail of stardust leading to the superstar/

Verse 2

I had dream that I was captain of my soul I was master of my fate/ I lost control and then I sank/ so I don’t wanna take the lead cause I prone ta make mistakes/ and all the folks who follow me gone end up in the wrong place/ So just let me shadow you/ just let me trace your lines/ matter fact just take my pen here you create my rhymes/ Cause if I do it by myself I’m scared that I’ll succeed/ & no longer trust in you/ cause I only trust in me/ and see/ that’s how you end up headed to destruction/ paving a road nowhere/ pour your life out for nothing/ you pulled my card I’m bluffin/ you know what’s in my hand/ me i just roll and trust you/ you cause the dice to land/ I’m in control of nothing/ follow you at any cost/ some call it sovereign will/ But all I know is you the boss/ man I’m so at ease/ I’m so content/ I play the background like it’s an instrument/

Verse 3

I know I’m safest when I’m in your will and trust your word/ I know I’m dangerous when I trust myself my vision blurred/ and I ain’t got no time to play life’s foolish games/ got plenty aims but do they really glorify your name/ and it’s a shame the way I wanna do these things for you/ yet don’t even cling to you/ take time to sit and glean from you/ and it seems that you/ are patient in my ignorance/ if ignorance is bliss it’s cause she never heard of this/
