  • See this in 3D, all lights out for me
    All lights out for me, lightning strikes the beach
    Eighty degrees, warm it up for me
    Finally free, found the God in me
    And I want you to see, I can walk on water
    Thousand miles from shore, I can float on the water
    Father, hold me close, don't let me drown
    I know you won't

    Yeah, walkin' on the bridge, I threw my sins over the deep end
    Sippin' 'til my stomach hurt, this month I done lost three friends
    Early mornin', brainstormin', normally I can't sleep in
    Sometimes I just wanna restart it, but it all depends
    If I'ma be that same young, hungry- from West End
    Wrote my hardest wrongs and the crazy part, I ain't have no pen
    Maybach interior came with sheepskin
    Still remember when I just had three bands
    Now I'm the one everyone calling on 'cause I got deep pants
    Bro told me to wait to beat the game, it's all in defense
    And never fazed by names, that they might call me, but they gon' respect it
    And I feel like you better off tryin' to call, I might not get the message
    And she just tried to run off with my heart, but I blocked off the exit, yeah

    Oh-oh, I know You won't (I know You won't)
    I know You won't (oh, yeah), oh, oh, oh (oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    I know You won't, I know that You look over us (I know)
    'Til we sound asleep
    Bring down the rain, yeah, oh

    Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm, I was out for self
    Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm, I was up for sale
    But I couldn't tell
    God made it rain, the devil made it hail
    Dropped out of school, but I'm that one at Yale
    Made the best tracks and still went off the rail
    Had to go down, down, down, this the new town, town, town
    This the new ten, ten, ten, I'm goin' in, in, in
    Here I go, on a new trip, here I go, actin' too lit
    Here I go, actin' too rich, here I go, with a new chick
    And I know what the truth is, still playin' after two kids
    It's a lot to digest when your life always movin'
    Architectural Digest, but I needed home improvement
    Sixty-million-dollar home, never went home to it
    Genius gone clueless, it's a whole lot to risk
    Alcohol anonym-est, who's the busiest loser?
    Heated by the rumors, read into it too much
    Fiendin' for some true love, ask Kim, "What did you love?"
    Hard to find what the truth is but the truth was that the truth suck
    Always seem to do stuff, but this time it was too much
    Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm, everybody so judgmental
    Everybody so judgmental
    Everybody hurts, but I don't judge rentals
    Mm-mm-mm, mm-mm, it was all so simple

    I see you in 3D, the dawn is bright for me
    No more dark for me, I know You're watching me
    Eighty degrees, burnin' up the leaves
    Finally, I'm free, finally, I'm free
    As I go out to sea, I can walk on water
    Won't you shine Your light? Demons stuck on my shoulder
    Father, hold me close, don't let me drown
    I know You won't
