14. Background Ft. C-Lite

Rehab
by Lecrae



 

Chorus
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

Verse 1
Itís evident you run the show, so let me back down
You take the leading role, and Iíll play the background
I know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
Iím sticking to your script, and Iím reading all your signs
I donít need my name in lights, I donít need a starring role
Why gain the whole wide world, If Iím just going lose my soul
And my ways ainít purified, donít live according to Your Word
I canít endure this life without Your wisdom being heard
So word to every dance, a foe, a pop star
ĎCause we all play the background, but mineís a rockstar
Yeah, so if you need me Iíll be stage right
Praying the whole world will start embracing stage fright
So let me fall back, stop giving my suggestions
ĎCause when I follow my obsessions, I end up confessing
That Iím not that impressive, matter of fact
Iím who I are, a trail of stardust leading to the superstar

Chorus
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

Verse 2
I had a dream that I was captain of my soul
I was master of my fate, lost control. and then I sank
So I donít want to take the lead, ícause Iím prone to make mistakes
All the folks who follow me, going end up in the wrong place
So let me just shadow you, let me trace your lines
Matter of fact, just take my pen, here, you create my rhymes
ĎCause if I do this by myself, Iím scared that Iíll succeed
And no longer trust in you, ícause I only trust in me
And see, thatís how you end up headed to destruction
Paving a road to nowhere, pour your life out for nothing
You pulled my card, Iím bluffing, You know whatís in my hand
Me, Iím just going to trust you, You cause the dice to land
Iím in control of nothing, follow you at any cost
Some call it sovereign will, all I know is you the boss
Man, Iím so at ease, Iím so content
Iíll play the background, like itís an instrument

Chorus
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

Bridge
I know Iím safest when Iím in Your will, and trust Your Word
I know Iím dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurred
And I ainít got no time to play lifeís foolish games
Got plenty aims, but do they really Glorify Your name
And itís a shame, the way I want to do these things for You
Donít even cling to you, take time to sit and gleam from You
Seems You were patient in my ignorance
If ignorance is bliss, itís ícause she never heard of this

Chorus
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead

Chorus
I could play the background
I could play the background
Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
So wonít You take the lead, lead, lead?
And I could play the background, background
And you could take the lead.
