Ryan Leslie – Glory lyrics

Listen, they tried to put me in a box, the urban dude,
I miss the festivals,...
They never really understood what I was trying to do,
And had me feeling... Kinda blue!
I flipped the switches and put the rock star in my show,
Went overseas and had 'em...
They're looking funny I was bad with a bad with a black band
Eating everybody in the game... !
The only issue is not a game,
I've got these kids looking at me, saying what a shame!
He's so underrated, he should have solved more
Should have had a number one record with his own...
Look at his life show, look how we touch 'em keys,
Look at 'em girls scream when he fall to his knees!
Look how we boys... When he tell a story,
I guess I had to spill my guts so I could get my glory!

Have you ever seen such determination?
Despite all, I'm still a theme for the adulation.
Everything I ever wrote I did it form the heart
Never had a top ten but you still respect my art.
I'm in the club and they still send me free bottles,
They still push that chief out far with a super model.
It's my reality, this ain't no show, brother
Go check my girl on the February Vogue cover!
Catch me ripping through the city in that silver...
Screaming oh, that's fine, Leslie here, they know it's me!
I'm not ashamed at all, in fact I love my story,
No matter what it takes I wanna keep my glory!

The glory, give it to me!
Oh, oh! (x2)

You asked me why I'm rapping,
Well I give you the reason,
The same reason you're hating when you should be believing!
It's in your heart to hate; it's in my heart to win,
So yeah, I'm rapping now, let the hating begin!
I'll write my own records, write my own checks,
Wonder which will... Which city I'm calling home next!
One thing I know for sure, one thing is mandatory,
I owe it all to God, I give it all to glory!

The glory, give it to me!
Oh, oh! (x2)
I'mma get my glory,
Give it to me! (x2)
