Tha Real U – Take Me Away lyrics


It's 2AM
I'm down on my knees
Praying for the lord
To come rescue me
Put me at ease
With my insecurity

These scriptures
Don't work
I feel they killing me

I wish I was like Drake
And not really Lecrae

Because once I rap
My raps always stay

They never travel the world
And rap about some girl
They only reach the Christians
The rest of folks be dissing

They like: "man I don't need it
I know enough about Jesus"

And though I’m a Christian
I'd feel
Like it's a messed up condition

Cause I know that I fail
I really ain't any better

I might know Jesus
But I don't really know the saviour

These sober nights
I savour

But they pay me no favour
Cause most of the time
I envy like a hater

And to every rapper out there
I swear I could do better


Take me away from here
Take me away

Take me away, away, away
From here

[Verse 2:]

This here I pray
I'm tryna be conscious
But it's a delay

Everything is wrong with them
It's never me

But when the Holy
Spirit speaks
I pray lord have mercy

Please don't condemn me
Don't make my life worse

I'm stuck with an English bible
In an Afrikaans church

No girlfriend, no job
No place even to study

And when I decide on something
I get a no from mommy

Should I take theology?
I really don't want to
I want to spread the good news
But should be enslaved to the gospel

You giving me freedom
So can I walk in it?
I know some choices wrong
But can you bless me in it?

I surrender my all
But please don't take my hope
Cause Lord,

I really wish
You just help me cope

But then again I realise
I'm as wrong as the world
I just want my own favour
Without doing you any labour

[Repeat hook]
