      Lecrae - Just Like You [Feat. J. Paul] Música y Letra

      I just wanna be like you,
      Walk like, talk like, even think like you
      The only one I could look to
      You're teaching me to be just like you
      Well I just gotta be like, like
      I just gotta be like you
      
      Dear, Uncle Chris, Uncle Keith, Uncle Ricky,
      Before the Lord get me, I gotta say something quickly, I
      Grew up empty since my daddy wasn't with me, shoot,
      I wasn't picky I'd take any male figure you
      Stepped in at the right time,
      It's 'cuz of you that I write rhymes
      You probably never knew that
      I loved the way you used to come through,
      Teach me to do the things that men do 
      True, You
      Showed me stuff I probably shouldn't have seen,
      But you had barely made it out your teens,
      Took me under your wings
      I wanted hats I wanted clothes just like you,
      Lean to the side when I roll just like you
      Ain't care if people didn't like you,
      You wanna bang, I wanna bang too
      Skyline, pyru
      You woulda died I woulda died too
      You went to prison got sick lost ya pops yeah I cried too
      You never know who's right behind you
      I got a little son now and he do whatever I do
      But it's something deep inside you,
      That tell you it's gotta be more than doing what other guys do,
      To have nobody there to guide you
      But I followed your footsteps and this shouldn't surprise you,
      You realize you, You realize you, you,
      Yeah,
      
      I just wanna be like you,
      Walk like, talk like, even think like you
      The only one I could look to,
      You're teaching me to be just like you
      Well I just gotta be like, like
      I just gotta be like you
      
      Now all I see is money, cars, jewels, Stars
      Womanizers, tough guys, guns, knives, and scars,
      Drug pushers, thugs, strippers, fast girls, fast life
      Everything I wanted and everything I could ask life
      If this ain't living and they lied well,
      Guess I married an old wives' tale
      Wow, fail
      I don't know another way to go,
      This is the only way they ever showed
      I got this emptiness inside that got me fighting for approval because I missed out on my daddy saying, way to go,
      Ain't get that verbal affirmation or know how to treat a woman,
      Know how to fix an engine,
      To keep the car running
      So now I'm looking at the media and I'm following what they feed me,
      Rap stars, trap stars,
      Whoever wants to lead me
      Even though they lie they still tell me that they love me,
      They say I'm good at bad things at least they proud of me
      
      I just wanna be like you,
      Walk like, talk like, even think like you
      The only one I could look to
      You're teaching me to be just like you
      Well I just gotta be like, like
      I just gotta be like you
      (Like you)
      
      I was created by God but I ain't wanna be like Him, 
      I wanna be Him
      The Jack Sparrow of my Caribbean 
      I remember the first created being,
      And how he shifted the blame on his dame
      For fruit he shouldn't have eaten,
      And now look at us all out of Eden,
      Wearing designer fig leaves by Louis Vuitton
      Make-believing
      But God sees through my foolish pride,
      And how I'm weak like Adam, another victim of Lucifer's lies
      But then in steps Jesus,
      All men were created to lead but we needed somebody to lead us
      More than a teacher,
      But somebody to buy us back from the darkness,
      You can say He redeemed us,
      Taught us that real leaders follow God,
      Finish the work 'cuz we on our job
      Taught us not to rob
      But give life, love a wife like He loved the Church,
      Without seeing how many hearts we can break first
      I wanna be like you in every way,
      So if I gotta die everyday
      Unworthy sacrifice
      But the least I can do is give the most of me
      Because being just like you is what I'm s'pose to be
      They said you came for the lame,
      I'm the lamest
      I made a mess, but you say you'll erase it,
      I'll take it...
      They say you came for the lame,
      I'm the lamest
      I broke my life, but you say you'll replace it,
      I'll take it.
      
      (I just gotta be like... be like... be like... I just gotta be like you...I just gotta be like you)
