  • My life be like ooh ah, yeah, ooh ooh
    My life be like ooh ah, ooh ah, yeah, ooh ooh
    Ooh ah, yeah, ooh ooh
    My life be like ooh ah, ooh ah, yeah, ooh ooh
    My life be like

    It's times like these that make me say
    Lord if you see me please come my way
    Leavin' bread crumbs for when I stray
    Rely on sacrifice and the price you pay

    Feel me like a fingertip
    (F-fingertip, f-fingertip)
    Sometimes I fall, I slip
    My heart felt desire be more like you
    Trying not to quench your fire with the things I do

    I'm on an island by my lonesome stranded
    Low key and stayin' candid, reflect on all the things I try my hand at
    Search for the equations to persuasions I'm used to
    Finding comfort in the zones of closet bones I get loose to

    A mountainous fontaine, spinnin' and monsoonin'
    Grinnin' it's high octane, explosive how I came
    Rollin' down hills 'cause life's a hassle
    Encircled by my folly like a moat surround a castle
    Stay afloat catch a second wind, thin is the air I breathe
    Teary eyed nose runnin', wipe the snot on my sleeve
    I'm callin' on the savior, to be all that I need
    Please forgive me, my behavior had me lost at light speed

    It's times like these that make me say
    Lord if you see me please come my way
    Leavin' bread crumbs for when I stray
    Rely on sacrifice and the price you pay

    Feel me like a fingertip
    (F-fingertip, f-fingertip)
    Sometimes I fall, I slip
    My heart felt desire be more like you
    Trying not to quench your fire with the things I do

    The fear of never falling in love
    And the tears after losing the feelings of what you thought love was
    Like the dirt still up under the rug
    My life be like bad characteristics covered in Christ's blood

    The joy of new birth and the pain of growing up
    The bliss between giving my all and giving up
    The highs and lows, paths and roads I chose
    In the cold I froze trying to ease my woes

    In this world of sin, clothes to thin to fend
    So to God I send words of help to win
    In grumblings so deep, letters could never express
    So the sound of, ooh aah, beneath my breath projects

    It's times like these that make me say
    Lord if you see me please come my way
    Leavin' bread crumbs for when I stray
    Rely on sacrifice and the price you pay

    Feel me like a fingertip
    (F-fingertip, f-fingertip)
    Sometimes I fall, I slip
    My heart felt desire be more like you
    Trying not to quench your fire with the things I do

    My life be like (don't be bad)
    My life be like, ooh ah ooh
    Dum dum diti, here comes that boy from the capital city
    Last up on the Grits new ditty
    But eight bars of the truth will do, eh

    I believe there's a bride that's stunning
    And, I believe in the kingdom coming
    I believe if you seek the truth
    You don't need to look far 'cause it's gonna find you

    So why oh why do I trip and stumble
    And ooh ah, as commitment crumbles
    I can't believe I'm here again

    My life be like
    It's times like these that make me say
    Lord if you see me please come my way
    Leavin' bread crumbs for when I stray
    Rely on sacrifice and the price you pay

    Feel me like a fingertip
    (F-fingertip, f-fingertip)
    Sometimes I fall, I slip
    My heart felt desire be more like you
    Trying not to quench your fire with the things I do

    It's times like these that make me say
    Lord if you see me please come my way
    Like leavin' bread crumbs for when I stray
    Rely on sacrifice and the price you pay

    Feel me like a fingertip
    (F-fingertip, f-fingertip)
    Sometimes I fall, I slip
    My heart felt desire be more like you
    Trying not to quench your fire with the things I do

    F-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip
    My life be like
    F-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip
    My life be like

    F-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip
    My life be like
    F-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip, f-fingertip
    My life be like Writer/s: Otto Montgomery Price Jr., Ric Robbins, Stacy Bernard Jones, Teron David Carter, Toby Mckeehan
