Bloodlines

by JGivens

[Intro: J.R.]
You gave me a voice to share my love forever
Be true to what, what I believe

[Hook: J.R.]
I see the light shine over the horizon
Showing me where to find true revival
My life will show them and Your words will free them
To see what, what I believe

[Verse 1: Alex Faith]
Ain't dipped in gold, ain't no pharaoh
Ain't ballin' hard with no bankroll
Ain't sippin' lean, but I'm spittin' mean
Say it is what it is, but it ain't though
That [?] but it's [?]
Wanna see how far that I can't go
Surprise them all when I come through
Got them bettin' on what I won't do
Started from the bottom, that's real life
I made it here that's a real fight
Rise to the top and forget where I'm from
Never do that, don't feel right
Riverdale in my bloodline
That's Cabbagetown, that's Ormewood
That's East Atlanta , that's 85
That's Flint River, that's Homewood
That's where I'm from, what raised me
So this rapping stuff it don't faze me
I was built for this and I love the Lord
Won't compromise for the mainstream
Not a people pleaser, I'm far from that
‘Cause your Twitter follow don't pay me
Hard truth so I ain't mad that half of y'all never play me
Your blog sites, your message boards, your hashtags, delete that
Them weak songs predictable, forgive me I don't feel that
This right here that faith music
Been a while since y'all heard it though
But ride with me and eventually
I believe that y'all will get used to that

[Hook: J.R.]
I see the light shine over the horizon
Showing me where to find true revival
My life will show them and Your words will free them
To see what, what I believe

[Verse 2: Alex Faith]
They don't really tell me that, I don't get shine
Doing what I do, I swear I lost my mind, oh
Imma tell ‘em ‘bout you
It's the reason what I do
Why waste my time
And I'm never looking back
I'm loving this life so I take my time
The way that y'all act got me feeling like this
I don't wanna run away, but don't waste my time
Ain't skin deep, it's the heart of me
Under that like an artery
Pull it back just to show you
All the things that's a part of me
Elevate my DNA like 3 Stacks when he said
South got something to say
No disrespect, I mean that
Trap music, I seen that
I said it, then I mean that
They say Atlanta can't rap no more
Y'all don't really believe that
This right here that faith music
Been a while since y'all heard it though
But ride with me and eventually
I believe that you gon' fiend that

[Bridge: J.R.]
Stars are bright tonight
Let me show you all of me

[Hook: J.R.]
I see the light shine over the horizon
Showing me where to find true revival
My life will show them and Your words will free them
To see what, what I believe
