Benjah – Read Me lyrics

Wanna run from all my problems
But it won't solve anything
Because my idols work full time.
It's the same old song with a different tune
And the jukebox just ran out
But I'm so tired of chasing times.

[Chorus:]
I've been floatin' in this ocean like a bottle (like a bottle),
I'm just trying to find a home (home).
I wonder if what you would read would be just like a novel (like a novel),
When you open me up alone.

Cause I-I feel it like,
I-I can't wait to read you-you-you know I want to,
I-I feel it like I-I can't wait to read
You-you-you know I want to (know I want to).

[Andy Mineo]
Whoa! As far as I can see, there's a lot of fishes.
They all different, I'm watching them as they swimming by.
And everybody's tellin me to go and live your life,
Go and get it right but I did it like a fool.
Didn't even listen to my master,
Did it my way and it ended in a disaster.
Gotta live it lil patient, I wanna move faster.
Built the house on a foundation that wouldn't last,
But I see every moment that's slipping by.
War is being written in the pages of my life
And it's chillin in this hollow frame, was hollering at dames,
Now I hollowed be thy name, never to be the same.
Still my past make it hard to forget,
Took cues from the world makes it hard to commit.
I must change just thinkin about sharin all of my sins,
As you open me up, just know that I've been forgivin.
I need my mind renewed with the truth
And then redefined with the definition of beauty is,
No matter how the pages of the past look when I find you,
We coauthoring the rest of this book. I've been...

[Chorus:]
Floatin' in this ocean like a bottle (like a bottle),
I'm just trying to find a home (home).
I wonder if what you would read would be just like a novel (like a novel),
When you open me up alone.

Cause I-I feel it like,
I-I can't wait to read you-you-you know I want to,
I-I feel it like I-I can't wait to read you-you-you know I want to,
I-I feel it like you-you can't wait to read me-me,
You know you want to,
I-I feel it like you-you can't wait to
Read me-me you know you want to (want to).

[Benjah]
They say you got to hit rock bottom,
But it's hard down there where character starts from.
True colors show in the storms like flags
On ships tryin to find new homes,
And I hit a couple lows, dug my holes, sunset but rose.
Glory in the morning,
No need to morn cause he rose on the third, a dozen thorns.
Set my past, road to Damascus,
So far gone not even coke bottle glasses
Could help me see the depth of the gashes he took for me,
To grant me access.
Took the weight of my baggage,
Paid my debt, pass through taxes,
No degree burns except from matches.
Eternity is my biggest asset.

I'm weathered, kind of beaten down,
Hope I'll be everything you need.
I gave him ashes for beauty.
My story isn't finished, show me grace now while you read
Because it's mainly who you see.

[Chorus:]
I've been floatin' in this ocean like a bottle (like a bottle),
I'm just trying to find a home (home).
I wonder if what you would read would be just like a novel (like a novel),
When you open me up alone.

Cause I-I feel it like,
I-I can't wait to read you-you-you know I want to,
I-I feel it like I-I can't wait to read you-you-you know I want to,
I-I feel it like you-you can't wait to read me-me,
You know you want to,
I-I feel it like you-you can't wait to
Read me-me you know you want to.
