Lecrae - Lost My Way Lyrics

[Hook: Daniel Daley]
Running, running 'til the fear is gone, don't know where I'm going
Don't know if I'll make it home, tell Mama I'm sorry
I know that I've made mistakes, tell her it ain't easy
I'll see her on judgment day, I lost my way
I lost my way, yeah, I lost my way, yeah [x4]

[Verse 1: Lecrae]
And tell the pastor to pray for me, I'm gone
Ay look, tell my mom and my partners who knew me since I was younger
I'm 'bout to sell out for fame and a couple dollars
Probably seen me on TV, standing with girls in bikinis
Bragging on money and things that I had to borrow
They knew it, I blew it, fame and fortune got to me
Keeping it real will keep you broke, I'm out here looking for glue
You wanted real hip-hop, I'm sorry
'Cause this VIP is free and all these girls want to party
So, super producer, pop singer, plus the yola
Now they got my record spinning, trying to sell you cola
Ah man, what happened? Started moving too fast
Traded the craft for the cash so now you do the math
Subtract the heart and the art you make for the people
You end up with a whole lot of zeros feeling like a zero
I use to be a hip-hop hero, now I'm just a victim of my ego
I lost my way, yeah, I lost my way
Mama, tell 'em I lost my way
Lord, I lost my way, yeah

[Interlude: King Mez]
Crazy can't nobody relate to nothing real no more
They want something fake, they want something fabricated, it's crazy
Can't nobody relate when I say, when I say

[Verse 2: King Mez]
When I say riding in the Hyundai, happy it's the weekend
'Cause I know Verizon won't disconnect my cell on a Sunday
They killed my Uncle Heli for nothing, I hate this gunplay
I can only talk to you from my soul, it'll pay off one day
One thousand, I got to be like an open book, we're spitting
It ain't the car you drove, it's the road you took to get it that defines you
Forget all that faking, whipping and soda
Spending their life savings in front of a club promoter
Like they got it like that, man that's a kid on that car
Acting like he bought it like that, you only get me so far
You ain't no artist like that, art ain't loud, it's thought provoking
And often the biggest words come from those who are softer spoken
For the ice and the cream they be Baskin' and Robbin'
At gunpoint, they love it, I pray you ain't walking beside 'em
At one point, we fought together, made 'em stop all they lies
But now we lie to ourselves in that we don't realize
Lord, help us

  14. Gifty Reji

    is dvsn a christian does anybody recommend him, like on a christian view point

    Gifty Reji

    but hopefully his songs are similar to lecrae's songs because i love his songs


    No. He just lent his vocals on this song. You can notice Daniel Daley has appeared in a couple other songs. But dvsn is a mainstream R&B duo. They are not a Christian group.

    Gifty Reji

    oh ok thx

    Gifty Reji

    wait are you talking about lecrae or dvsn or Daniel Daley

    Julian Alexander

    Gifty Reji Daniel Daley is the singer and one half of dvsn. I’m sure he’s a Christian but he doesn’t make Christian music

  27. Anya Popov

    listen people, Christian artist should concentrate on worshiping Christ ! Not for youth to be mad in the head to sing this hook over and over again, I lost my??


    If Christian rappers only rapped about God then no one besides Christians would ever listen to them which defeats the purpose of evangelizing.  Lecrae's goal is to reach everybody and have a purposeful, positive impact on society.  Not just to create music fellow Christians can jam out to.  If you listen to Lecrae you will find that even though he doesn't always talk about Jesus in every one of his songs, he never once forgets his roots, which is God.  You can still advocate; love, peace, kindness, not using drugs, not abusing women, not killing people, not stealing, not selling out, not leaving your wife and kids; all of which are things that Christians stand for so I don't see how that is not "concentrating on worshiping Christ."  Just because Lecrae doesn't mention the name "Jesus" doesn't mean he isn't promoting Him.

    @Anya Popov The first step to Salvation is realizing that you are lost without Jesus Christ. This song to me represents everyone of us before we come to the Cross. This song is like a yellow brick road leading us to Jesus. If you listen to his entire album - not just this one song - it teaches us that Jesus is the one true King and after everything thing ends it'll be Him we meets so it must be Him we follow.

    NB Shabba

    +Jordan23DWade03 👏 thank you


    +Anya Popov "Real Christianity" that you mention is very blind. "Real Christianity" is about having Jesus as your lord and savior, and loving unconditionally above all else. Not just to other Christians, but to everyone. That was Jesus's message. This artist is helping do just that, spread God's love to everyone, not just devoted Christians. If that isn't "Real Christianity" I don't know what is. "I am not God, ma'am, it is not my place to judge."

    +Anya Popov Sounds like you lost your way lady
