Can't Stop Me Now (Destination)

Album: All Things Work Together (2016)
  • Hey, all those feelings of depression and doubt
    You gotta tell 'em go away
    You've gotta say get out the way
    And let them know
    Ayy, you can't stop me now
    Ayy, then you throw up both hands way back
    And then you sail away
    Yeah, you've gotta ride the wave
    Let 'em know, ayy you can't stop me now

    Yeah, last year I was feeling hopeless
    I just wanted it to end
    People stealing money from me, man
    I swear I thought that we was friends
    And I was so depressed, I was such a mess
    I couldn't shake it off
    Another murder on the television
    Man, somebody go turn it off
    I spoke my mind, I got attacked for it
    Thought these people had my back, boy
    Now they tellin' me I asked for it
    I guess I'm just another black boy
    And then they killed Tamir Rice
    And they just go on with they life
    They tellin' me shut up talking 'bout it
    Like, I should just talk about Christ
    But the truth is I started to doubt God
    I started to question my purpose
    I started to act out
    I ain't wanna sign another autograph or give a fake smile
    Doctors told me that my man died
    I almost had a breakdown

    So tell depression it can fly away
    Tell my doubts that they can die today
    I'ma catch me a wave, sail away
    Can't stop me now
    Tell depression it can fly away
    Tell my doubts that they can die today
    I'ma catch me a wave, sail away
    Can't stop me now

    All those feelings of depression and doubt
    You gotta tell 'em go away
    You've gotta say get out the way
    And let 'em know
    Ayy, you can't stop me now
    Ayy, then you throw up both hands way back
    And then you sail away
    Yeah, you've gotta ride the wave
    Let 'em know, ayy, you can't stop me now

    And recently I found a peace to be
    Everything that I was meant to be
    This my identity, this what He give to me
    This what I'm made to be
    My daddy still on that crack
    And he might never come back
    But I still love the man, I don't judge the man
    I could be on that track
    I'm glad that Jesus ain't American
    And that's the reason why I care again
    People started praying for me
    And homies tellin' me I was being arrogant
    I quit poppin' them pills
    And even though we get killed
    I know that God got a greater plan
    For the death and blood that we spill

    So tell depression it can fly away
    Tell my doubts that they can die today
    I'ma catch me a wave, sail away
    Can't stop me now
    Tell depression it can fly away
    Tell my doubts that they can die today
    I'ma catch me a wave, sail away
    Can't stop me now

    All those feelings of depression and doubt
    You gotta tell 'em go away
    You've gotta say get out the way
    And let 'em know
    Ayy, you can't stop me now
    Ayy, and you throw up both hands way back
    And then you sail away
    Yeah, you've gotta ride the wave
    Let 'em know, ayy, you can't stop me nowWriter/s: MARKUS ALANDRUS RANDLE, LECRAE DEVAUGHAN MOORE, SUFJAN STEVENS
