Текст на песента

started with hanging posters on my bedroom walls

to battle rapping for status up in the school halls

just call me double sushi thought I was too raw

and hip hop was my home, I had my shoes off

6'3 in high school I skipped the hoop dream

if I don't blowup then maybe I'll try the school thing

I went to college to do my family a favor

but I couldn't pick a major cause I wanted to be ma-jor

I tried selling work, but it didn't work.

so I worked - shoppers seen a clerk, fi'n go berserk

lunch break seen me writing 16's over micky dee's

skipping class making beats over 60 keys

and I love it even though I'm just chasing

selfish ambition couldn't tell your boy naything

watch out all you rappers cause they filling Lecrae in

but I was sleeping on the sun like the 'days inn'

and you could have the money, and you could have the fame.

but me I want the glory, I'm living for the name

see life is just a picture, I see outside the frame

I'm living for the kingdom, and I ain't of the same

yeah, and I'ma chase that. I'ma I'ma chase that

found the key to life and best believe that I'ma plate that

glory I'ma chase that, I'ma I'ma chase that

glory I'ma chase that, I'ma I'ma chase that

ugh, I remember chasing the green feeling blue

only check I'm counting is the mic check (1, 2)

all I wanted was the money and the fame and the new

somebody on my arm when I walk inside the room

all I wanted was doomed, the same kind Alexander the great felt

when the earth ran out of room

he conquered all he could but yet he still was consumed

by this never-ending quest for glory he couldn't fuel

like a typical fool I would go hard - shooting for the moon

but there's only one Son, no co-star.

chasing glory I shouldn't own,

stead of living to make His name known I'm running after His throne.

I thought being on TV where everybody could see me

was nothing short of the easiest way I could see to please me

I'll never be who I used to desperately want to be,

I'm too worried bout the Lord getting credit instead of me

and you could have the money, and you could have the fame.

but me I want the glory, I'm living for the name

see life is just a picture, I see outside the frame

I'm living for the kingdom, and I ain't of the same

yeah, and I'ma chase that. glory chase that

found the key to life and best believe that I'ma plate that

glory I'ma chase that, I'ma I'ma chase that

glory I'ma chase that, I'ma I'ma chase that

I used to wanna do it big.

when you're only focused on yourself - that's small

and they, they used to tell me as a kid

that I could do anything that I wanted cept fall

and now that I recall, I was chasing my goals

and every time I caught em they multiplied into more

I never even thought about whether the Lord approved

call it selfish ambition I call it "I'm making moves"

but history repeats itself, evil's what it is

cause lucifer was cast away for doing what I did

created by the God that spoke the earth into existence

instead of chasing the Father's glory he was chasing his

he lies to us all, told Adam he could ball

"why you following God when you can go get it all?"

I tell you what's better, or better yet worse.

chasing your own glory while doing the Lord's work,

so holla if it hurts, but we were made for greater

our greatest satisfaction is making His name famous

so if we're never named among the greatest,

they don't critically acclaim us,

ain't nothing to be ashamed of we gave it up for the savior!

I'ma chase that, I'ma I'ma chase that

and the Lord's goodness you should you should taste that

and you ain't living till you're living for His name

glory I'ma chase that, I'ma I'ma chase that.
