Lecrae – Sunday Morning (feat. Kirk Franklin)


I been messed up (Yeah)
Stressed out with no luck (Yeah)
But every time I wake up (Yeah)
I get a chance to wake up (Yeah)
Thank God I got a chance to wake up
Wake up
Another day to get my cake up
Cake up (Yeah)
‘Cause everytime I wake up (Oh, yeah)
I get a chance to wake up (Oh, yeah)
Wake up, wake up

Wake up lil slick
Get up outta bed
You was like a couple steps away from being outta here
Thank you for my granny prayers
Thank you for my partna’ ‘dem
I thought I was finished here
Jesus told me, “Start again”
I would party sundown till days end
Making money that I can’t spend
I had a failing marriage and some fake friends
I had to doubt my doubts and let faith in
Was broken
God done brought me out like I was Moses
I’m chosen
Woke up Sunday morning feeling focused
Funny acting
Swipe left
Yeah, that’s on mommas
Always cappin’
Swipe left
Yeah, no more drama
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mm-mm-mm
Boy, you know you blessed
Last night was a mess
God just hit refresh

I been messed up (Yeah)
Stressed out with no luck (Yeah)
But every time I wake up (Yeah)
I get a chance to wake up (Yeah)
Thank God I got a chance to wake up
Wake up
Another day to get my cake up
Cake up (Yeah)
‘Cause everytime I wake up (Oh, yeah)
I get a chance to wake up (Oh, yeah)
Wake up, wake up

Woke up in the new diablo
Father stretch me like I’m Pablo (Preach)
Sunday Service on the front stoop
With a cup of tea in a condo
Tony Evans kickin’ convo
Walking me through my storm
And I ain’t grow up hearing gospel
But I got it playing this morn’
I done been through this a time or two
I keep going back, but now I’m finally through
I’m like “if I was God I’d be tired of you”
But He be open arms like He desire you
I’m like “wow”
Smokin’, sippin’, slippin’
Thought I lost my grip and wow
Pulled me back and told me I’m forgiven

I woke up sunday morning weight up on my chest (Yeah)
Had to remind myself that everyday I’m blessed (Yeah)
‘Cause everytime I wake up (Oh, yeah)
I get a chance to wake up (Oh, yeah)

Thank God I got a chance to wake up
Wake up
Another day to get my cake up
Cake up (Yeah)
‘Cause everytime I wake up (Oh, yeah)
I get a chance to wake up (Oh, yeah)
Wake up, wake up, wow

Yeah
Yeah
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah

Seasons change the colors so quickly
It’s hard to keep up with the leaves
‘Cause everybody leaves
On my birthday, Kobe, Gigi and seven souls remind me
That the tree of life is so uncertain
And tomorrow has unpredictabilities as colorful as the smiles that took off that day
May that sunday morning resonate past trophies and trinkets and the ongoing pursuit of more
To sober us but the humbling truth
My life and your life
Is just a vapor
And if what you see is all you see
Then you do not see all there is to be seen
Quickly
We leave
