NF - I've Been There Lyrics



'Cause I've been there
And I know how it feels to lose your way
And lose the real you once knew existed
And I know
I know how it feels to go astray and feel the pain
You feel like something's missing

I've been there
The enemy is wearing me thin
I called your name, God
Guess you didn't hear me again
I keep praying to you
Seems like you don't want me to win
Want me to lose, 'cause
I feel like you're offerin' sin
To me on a silver platter
So my mind it get lost
Not just a little bit, I'm seein' all that I want
So I take it, thinkin' that my pain will dissolve
Back to square one, now I ain't got nothin' at all
What should I do?
How should I react when
Everything I thought that wouldn't happen happened?
All my dreams out by the road where the trash is
Something's missing but I don't know how to grab it
I know that you see me, but I don't feel your presence
And somethin' in my heart is startin' to get infected
I'm startin' to fall apart
Headin' in a direction
Opposite of the stars
Oh yeah
And did I mention I've been there?

'Cause I've been there
And I know how it feels to lose your way
And lose the real you once knew existed
And I know
I know how it feels to go astray and feel the pain
You feel like something's missing

Satan's a liar
I hate the way he lures me in
Forget the Bible, I'd rather take a sip of this sin
And once I take a sip of it, I realize that I went
Over the edge, so I repent and then I do it again
Look at me go like the true buckram in my funeral
Black tie, black suit, now isn't it beautiful?
Uh huh
In other words, I'm tryna say that I'm dead
Don't know what's missin' but I'm pullin' hairs outta my head
Tryin' to grasp it
God what am I lackin'?
Whatever it is, I know I gotta have it
I'm fallin' harder than I ever imagine
I say I'm givin' my best, but I know that I haven't
It's tragic
You're knockin' at my door but it's locked
What's wrong with me, Doc?
I don't think this pain's gonna stop
Ain't you ever thought, Nathan, maybe it's not what's in your heart already
It's what you ain't got

'Cause I've been there
And I know how it feels to lose your way
And lose the real you once knew existed
And I know
I know how it feels to go astray and feel the pain
You feel like something's missing

Lord, forgive me
Please fill this hole in my heart
I got a life full of cracks, and I'm fallin' apart
Lord, forgive me
I need you to make me clean
So when they look, they see you and not just me
Lord, forgive me
Please fill this hole in my heart
I got a life full of cracks, and I'm fallin' apart
Lord, forgive me
I need you to make me clean
So when they look, they see you and not just me
Fill me up
I'm amped and I'm ready to go
Fill me up
I don't care if it's outta control
Fill me up
To the point that I'm so full that I'll be livin' and breathin' to get more
Fill me up
I'm amped and I'm ready to go
Fill me up
I don't care if it's outta control
Fill me up
To the point that I'm so full that I'll be livin' and breathin' to get more

'Cause I've been there
And I know how it feels to lose your way
And lose the real you once knew existed
And I know
I know how it feels to go astray and feel the pain
You feel like something's missing
'Cause I've been there
And I know how it feels to lose your way
And lose the real you once knew existed
And I know
I know how it feels to go astray and feel the pain
You feel like something's missing

Yeah, what I'm tryna say is:
You know, all of us been to that point where
We lookin' around for things in this world
Wondering what can fill that gap that's in our heart
You know what I'm sayin'?
And all I'm tryna say is:
I've been there, I know how you feel
And I also know how to feel like that, ya know
Jesus
And nothin' else gon' do it for you
And that's for real

    Stop calling me a liar

  11. triplejudy

    Sin= a bullshit marketing scam designed to threaten you with a delusion based on a mythical, superstitious cure.

    A Watson

    triplejudy If you're intrested, you should read The Case for Christ, written by Lee Strobel when he was an atheist. He set out to disprove Christianity. It explores the evidence for Jesus. I would really recommend it! Happy New Year!!

  13. Immortal Gaming

    Quick question, how did you find all of these songs? They aren’t anywhere else tbh

  14. Justin Long

    Basically the lesson of this song is take what you need, not what you want.

  15. Jason Lee

    👍🏿

  16. Jeff Courtney

    So many songs NF has. Is exactly how I feel or things I'm going through myself. My all time favorite rapper!!! Thx NF!!!

  17. Rachel Reep

    Umm...how can you dislike this song

  18. Fox X

    This is incredible!! I have been there as well and it's a scary place to be. It's a lonely dark place... I'm actually just coming out of being there. I still have a long way to go. My entire life fell apart. Everyone turned their back on when I needed someone, anyone in my corner. I had to look up to the sky and I started praying more. God hears us when we talk to him and he's always with us. He will bring you out of the darkness and lift you up like you can't even imagine. Just keep praying and give your worries over to God. Let him take the wheel and believe with all of you that he is real. Ask for forgiveness for your sins and just try to keep your head up. I did that and I have had some incredible moments where I know God was speaking to me through music or in what I'd read. It may sound crazy but it's real. I've been there and I know the struggle. I also know that I believe in you. Don't feel alone. I got you! ** NF your music has gotten me through a lot. You have a gift and it's truly beautiful. Thank you! God bless. 🌹

  19. Ryan B

  32. shilko Rose

    Believe it or not the experience . The things that we go through. In life we all have something to relate to so. It is a voice and it is going forward , people do here! They just need to learn to see without their blenders on. rms

  33. btbutterflywings6

    Can I be honest? I don’t want to offend anyone when I say this. I have not ever been into this style of music, but I love yours. I love your messages you are sharing and I will listen to your music. I never really cared for the language in most rap, but from the first one I listened to today I have been listening ever since. So so glad that someone has taken up the cross and reaching for any that listens to this style only. My son does and I don’t think he listens to any other style. Thanks for sharing and God bless!❤️

  87. K The Heyoka

    Im not christian but i love this music, and i know God

  88. Leanora McCarthy

    I'm there always it seems. the man I love n need has choked me out amongst other things that could've killed me. A lot of times, I don't feel like I'm gonna make it. maybe I'm the problem but I don't think someone who loves me should ever physically hurt me but he says it's my fault. how did this happened? what did I do to deserve to fear the man I love n depend on. I have nobody but him who will hurt me if I act wrong or disagreeable to his standards. I just wanna be alone n free. I'm tired of being an object that most men I know just want to control n use for their pleasure. but nobody cares. everyone's got their own issues to deal with, I understand. I just wish I could find somebody WHO understands me.

  89. Nikkmike

    It’s truly a way of saying what you feel...you feel so alone and that people don’t know...but they DO

  95. Princess Niloo

    Wow , this song is soooo deep .... NF it's like you're reading my mind because I feel like sin is offered to me on a silver platter as well , and there's times when I feel like God's testing me but, how many tests are there going to be ? And how many times does the devil try to win ? It's hard to stay strong, and walk with your head up high; I swear that's when the devil tries to take control .....But, no matter how many times the devil tries to take control , he never wins !
