Chapters

Album: Ticket to L.A. (2018)
  • In chapter one, I was raised on the Dodgers
    Every boy wants to be like his father
    In Little League, when he was coachin' me
    I was hangin' on every word
    Sundays, he was the one who would lead us
    Taught me everything I know about Jesus
    Front row, he's on a roll, and I'm hangin' on every word
    It sounds nice, doesn't it?
    I wish that I knew back then

    There's no perfect life, you can't hold back time
    But you hold on tight, hopin' you might find
    Every page you turn is a lesson learned
    Ain't we all, ain't we all just tryna get it right?
    These are the chapters of my life, mmm

    Phase two, overwhelmed by attention
    Everybody expectin' perfection
    Throw a ball, then you'll have it all
    Best thing I ever heard
    Things change in the blink of an eyelid
    Guess my body knew way more than I did
    Doc said you'll never play again
    Worst thing I ever heard
    It's sounds rough, doesn't it?
    I wish I knew back then

    There's no perfect life, you can't hold back time
    But you hold on tight, hopin' you might find
    Every page you turn is a lesson learned
    Ain't we all, ain't we all just tryna get it right?
    These are the chapters of my life
    The chapters of my life

    Truth is that we all got stories
    Gotta fail on your way to glory
    Takes time tryna get it right
    But every future has a past
    And right now I can hear God laughin'
    Guess he must have heard my plans
    And my odes, thought it was a joke
    Gave me more than I could ask
    And I wish I knew back then, oh

    There's no perfect life
    You can't hold back time (Can't hold back time)
    But you hold on tight (And you hold on tight)
    Hopin' you might find
    Every page you turn (Page you turn)
    Is a lesson learned
    Ain't we all, ain't we all just tryna get it right?
    These are the chapters of my life

    Chapters of my, chapters of my life
    Chapters of my life
    Chapters of my, yeah
    The chapters of my life
    Ooh, my life
    The chapters of my life, oh
