04. Just Like You Ft. J. Paul

Rehab
by Lecrae



 

(J-Paul)
I just wanna be like you,
Walk like, talk like, even think like you
The only one I could look to
Youíre teaching me to be just like you
Well I just gotta be like,
I just gotta be like you

(Verse 1- Lecrae)
Yeah, Uncle Chris, Uncle Keith, Uncle Ricky,
Before the Lord get me I gotta say something quickly
I grew up empty since my daddy wasnít with me shoot,
I wasnít picky Iíd take any male figure
You
stepped in at the right time,
Itís Ďcuz of you that I write rhymes
You probably never knew that
I loved the way you used to come through come through,
Teach me to do the things that men do
True,
You showed me stuff I probably shouldnít have seen,
But you rebelled and made it out your teens,
and took me under your wings
I wanted hats, I wanted clothes just like you,
Lean to the side when I rolled just like you
And care people didnít like you,
You wanna bang, I wanna bang too
Skyline,pyru
You wouldíve died, I wouldíve died too,
You went to prison, got sick, lost your pops,
Yeah,I cried too
You never know whoís right behind you,
Gotta a little son now and he do whatever I do
But itís something deep inside you,
That tell itís gotta be more than doing what other guys do,
They had nobody there to guide you
But I followed your footsteps and this shouldnít surprise you,
You realize you, you, you
Yeah,

(Chorus)
I just wanna be like you,
Walk like, talk like, even think like you
The only one I could look to,
Youíre 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 ainít living and they lied well,
guess I married an old wivesí tale
Wow, fail
I donít 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,
And get that verbal affirmation on know how to treat a woman,
Know how to fix an engine,
That keep the car running
So now Iím 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 Iím good at bad things at least they proud of me

(Chorus)
I just wanna be like you,
Walk like, talk like, even think like you
The only one I could look to
Youíre 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 ainít 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
On fruit he shouldít have eaten
And now look at us all out of Eden,
And now look at us all that are eating,
Wearing designer fig leaves by Louis Vuitton
Make believe it
But God sees through my foolish pride,
And Iím weak life Adam another victim of Luciferís foolish lies
But then in steps Jesus,
All men were created to lead but we need somebody to lead us
More than a teacher,
But somebody who buy us back from the darkness,
Say He redeemed us,
Taught us that real leaders follow God,
Finish the work Ďcuz we on our job
Taught us not to rob
But give life love a wife like He loved the Church,
Not 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 to me
Because being just like you is what Iím Ďspose to be
You said you came for the lame,
Iím the lamest
I made a mess you say youíll erase it,
Iíll take it
You said you came for the lame,
Iím the lamest
I broke my life, but you say youíll replace it,
Iíll take it.

(I just gotta be like,Ö.)
