My Whole Life Changed

Album: Church Clothes 2 (2013)
  • Let's just say I saw the light
    Let's just say I heard the truth
    Let's just say I ain't' the same no more
    I'm out here looking new
    Let's just say I left the game
    Take my jersey, I retired
    Let's just say I'm at the game
    Put me in I'm on fire
    Boy!

    My whole life changed (that's when)
    My whole life changed (that day)
    My whole life changed (right there)
    My whole life changed
    My whole life changed (that's when)
    My whole life changed (that day)
    My whole life changed (right there)
    My whole life changed

    Alright now, stop!
    Ya'll don't quite understand the story I got
    I once popped a whole thing of pills in hopes that I drop
    My cousin walked out a party, bow, got shot
    Pow, pow, pow
    Some girl lied and my partna is locked in that box
    So, I'm not concerned about what they think about me
    Think about it
    That truth is tatted up on my heart and can't nobody get that ink up out it
    I'm eatin out and they thinking now I'm gone' sell out
    Maybe I feed em' now
    And some folks looking like they ain't learned the foundation firm
    I ain't seeking out
    So, I don't need a co-sign to get this
    All the things you done
    I done did that
    I could rap about money and cars and getting high
    But, why? I let the rest of ya'll pen that
    Insecurity brags and I've been that
    V.I.P. with Lebron James, I'm in that
    So, I don't need a hug from Hip-Hop
    A right to go pop and hope that ya'll feel that
    Nah
    Imma talk about faith
    Imma talk about Christ
    Imma talk about life
    Cuz' I want to
    Change my life I ain't lost my sight
    I been on the same things since '02
    And that's real talk
    That's plumbline
    That's UNT
    My soul's rocked
    And my life changed
    I'm free indeed

    Let's just say I saw the light
    Let's just say I heard the truth
    Let's just say I ain't' the same no more
    I'm out here looking new
    Let's just say I left the game
    Take my jersey, I retired
    Let's just say I'm at the game
    Put me in I'm on fire
    Boy!

    My whole life changed (that's when)
    My whole life changed (that day)
    My whole life changed (right there)
    My whole life changed
    My whole life changed (that's when)
    My whole life changed (that day)
    My whole life changed (right there)
    My whole life changed

    Alright, Chill
    Apparently, you can't tell the fake from the real
    And these rappers getting all sensitive in my ears
    Insecure whining makes it harder to hear
    But uhh, that ain't here nor there
    I swear I respect the kind of reject that
    Wanna rebel and just reflect on real things like feelings
    But these feelings are kinda suspect
    Look, I came from a past so shameful
    Took advantage of the girls by the handful
    Had no remorse recourse was a boy until I ran into the source of the voice
    Telling me everything I was on was wrong
    Yessir, I was on my throne
    Now I hear the same thing, same thing
    But I hear it in a song and they wanting me to sing along
    Woah, that's trifling, for a grown man that's stifling
    I was on the same path for the wrath
    I just never got paid for the trash I was writing
    But like lightning, that light came and struck me
    My life changed, and then suddenly
    I met The Lord, and it wasn't even a Sunday
    Maybe, one day, someday, you'll give ya' life up to Jesus
    Instead of giving ya' life up to pieces
    That's gon' rust and fade when you cease
    Huh? Writer/s: Derrick Okoth Omondi, Jamal Wesley James, Le Crae Moore, Michael Jefferson, Torrance Anton Esmond
