My Life Be Like Reason Behind My Blog

Please read through these lyrics, you can listen to the song here

[Hook]
My life be like
Ooh Aah (yeah), Ooh Ooh
My life be like (yeah)
Ooh Aah, Ooh Aah (yeah), Ooh Ooh
Ooh Aah (yeah), Ooh Ooh
My life be like (yeah)
Ooh Aah, Ooh Aah (yeah), Ooh Ooh
My life be like (yeah)

[Chorus: over hook]
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 paid
Feel me like a fingertip (fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip)
Sometimes I fall I slip
My heartfelt desire be more like you
Tryin’ not to quench your fire with the things I do

[Verse One: Coffee]
I’m on an island by my lonesome stranded
Low key and stayin’ candid
Reflect on all the things I try my hand at
Church 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 hign octane
Explosive how I came
Rollin’ down hills cause lifes a hastle
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

[Chorus: over hook]
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 paid
Feel me like a fingertip (fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip)
Sometimes I fall I slip
My heartfelt desire be more like you
Tryin’ not to quench your fire with the things I do

[Verse Two: Bonifide]
The fear of never fallin’ in love
And the tears after losin’ the feelings of what you thought love was
Like the dirt still up under the rug (My life be like)
Bad characteristics covered in Christs blood
The joy of new birth and the pain of growin’ up
The bliss between givin’ my all and givin’ up
The highs and lows
Paths and roads I chose
In the cold I froze
Tryin’ 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

[Chorus: over hook]
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 paid
Feel me like a fingertip (fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip)
Sometimes I fall I slip
My heartfelt desire be more like you
Tryin’ not to quench your fire with the things I do

(Don’t be bad)
[Verse Three: TobyMac]
My life be like
Ooh Aah Ooh
Dum dum ditty
Here come that boy from the Capital City
Last up on the Grits new ditty
But eight bars or the truth well do (uh)
I believe theres a private stunnin
And I believe in the Kindgom Comming
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 aah as commitment crumbles?
I can’t believe that I’m here again….

[Chorus: over hook]
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 paid
Feel me like a fingertip (fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip)
Sometimes I fall I slip
My heartfelt desire be more like you
Tryin’ 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
Leavin’ bread crumbs for when I stray
Rely on sacrifice and the price you paid
Feel me like a fingertip (fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip)
Sometimes I fall I slip
My heartfelt desire be more like you
Tryin’ not to quench your fire with the things I do

Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
My life be like
Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
Ma-ma-my life be like
Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
My life be like
Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
Fa-finger tip, fa-finger tip
My life be like

I have had this song stuck in my head for a while now and thought to make a blog out of it. Still not sure why, but my favorite part has to be.

“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 paid”

In a time when death and depression are everywhere, news, social media, even in our music. God leaves us these little bread crumbs similar to those of the story of Hansel and Gretel. Just hints, almost that he is there.

Several years ago my pastor had a great message about how God can’t be the mop in the closet. God can’t and will not be there when we just have a mess on the floor. But surely enough God is there no matter what. God is the floor and the chairs and the tables. God is everything and yet for some reason we have a horrible tendency to treat him like nothing in our life. Don’t let Christ be the mop, let him be the “everything” he already is.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that should walk in them.
