Lecrae - Outsiders Lyrics




I won't stay here another night
If I gotta sacrifice
Who I am on the inside
I'd rather be an outsider
And you can stay if you like
I'll see you on the other side
I wanna live the free life
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider

Outsiders
I really can't tell if I'm over-dressed or I'm under-dressed
If I'm under-paid, or just over-stressed
If I'm cynical, or just over this
'Cause I'm tired of tryna get over there
Man, it's over there

Party's over party's over
You probably couldn't tell we over here
'Cause you hardly sober
Double shots in that ego
They laughing at us, yeah, we know
May be at the bottom
But we not forgotten
The director's plotting that sequel

'Til then we live on the outside
And it might storm and we might die
But I'd rather go with my fist high
Standing outside of your inside

I tried my best to fit in
Looking for a suit to fit in
Standing outside of your prison
I tried
Tryna find ways I can get in
No more

Now I realize that I'm free
And I realize that I'm me
And I found out that I'm not alone
'Cause there's plenty people like me
Say what

That's right there's plenty people like me
OK
All love me despite me
And all unashamed
And all unafraid
To speak out for what we might see outside
One more time

I said there's plenty people like me
All outsiders like me
And all unashamed
And all unafraid
To live out what they supposed to be outside

I won't stay here another night
If I gotta sacrifice
Who I am on the inside
I'd rather be an outsider
And you can stay if you like
I'll see you on the other side
I wanna live the free life
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider
I'd rather be an outsider

I know what they asking for
I know what they asking for
But how you gone cover charge me, my life is sold
And then turn around and ask for more

Time to go, plus the line is long
I'ma color the outside, but lines are drawn
If you wanna exclude me for being the true me
It's Gucci, I already found my home

Homesick, homeless
If I'm honest
'Cause my home is somewhere I ain't never been before
I'ma own this here gift, even if it don't fit in the box that'll bleed these folks

Some of ya'll don't need these quotes
I ain't tryna' eat, I'm tryna' feed these folks
Martin, Mandela, yeah, we need these folks
We believe these folks
We could be these folks

But they want me to take an L
Tired of taking losses, so they can call me a failure
I failed at being you, but I'm winning at being me
I'm winning at being free, ain't no competition but me

See I realize that I'm free
And I realize that I'm me
And I found out that I'm not alone
And there's plenty people like me
I said there's plenty people like me
All outsiders like me
All unashamed
And all unafraid
To live out what they supposed to be
Outsiders!

It's been too dark, so many lies
Turn on the lights, open your eyes

We'll be runnin' through the night
It's brighter on the other side

Something's bigger than you and I
Brighter on the other side
Brighter on the other side
Brighter on the other side
Brighter on the other side
Brighter on the other side

  32. abriana favors

    How do you love Jesus but you want to be an outsider...how do you love Jesus if you want to be like everyone else....how do we love Jesus if we want to be like Lecrae....You rap about Jesus then you boast about wanting to be an outsider....which way Lecrae? Its either Jesus way or your way

    Star Davenport

    abriana favors. being an outsider is being of God. you be an outsider of this world. so you can be an insider of Heaven. say if your friends aren't doing Godly and disobeying God like with drugs... you should be an outsider and leave that group. and find some friends that are of God!!

    Star Davenport

    And bruh what you got against Lecrae

  33. OfficialPlug #PlugStyle

    I wish there was just a singing version of this :/ the rapping parts could’ve been out this song tbh it through me off, but the singing is the best ! 🔥

    לק אקסנריטר

    Reach Records offers deluxe digital versions for most of the albums they publish, including Lecrae's Anamoloy. The deluxe versions include the mastered tracks, the acapellas, and the instrumentals. If you purchased the deluxe version, you could layer the acapella and instrumental achieve the song you're looking for.

  34. King Kaid

    As Christians, we are familiar with hate, death, persecution.
    But that doesn't mean we have to succumb to the world. This place is only temporary; God is forever. We just gotta wait on him, no matter what people say. That's what this song has taught me.....

    Never fear, never give in, never compromise.... Because of who we stand for. And one day, it will be "brighter on the other side".

  35. Ryan Sinclair

    This song is my anthem in 2019!
