Used to Do It Too

by Lecrae

While there’s no sure route to carving out a significant presence in the music industry, there’s always something to be said for remaining true to one’s self. Since arriving on the scene with his 2004 debut Real Talk, Lecrae has been occupying two different yet not entirely opposing worlds: the sac…

Hey, KB, man, you know we don't brag on our past
We just relate
Some folks think they mistakes
Gonna keep them out the gates
It ain't about what you do, it's about what you did
Let's go!

I used to do it too, I used to do it too,
I used to do it, used to do it, used to do it too
I used to do it too, I used to do it too,
I used to do it, used to do it, used to do it too
But I'm changed, now I'm something different (Aye)
I'm changed, I love the way I'm living (Aye)
I'm changed, saved me from my own sin (Aye)
I'm changed, I learned how to live again (Aye)

Ah man you name it bra, I promise I done done it all
So busy doin me that I aint care at all (but I'm changed)
I know I aint the person that I used to be
I look the same but I promise this a newer me
See what I used to be was selfish and conceited
I was living for myself and telling Jesus he could beat it
At the time I couldn't see it, all I saw was havin fun
Went to church to look for ladies, not to look upon the Son
I was a hedonist, now Jesus is my pleasure
I was a narcissist but now I'm lookin betta.
But I ain't fix myself, aint turn myself around
I gave it up and told the Lord that he can have it now

I was tryin to figure what's a goone to a goblin
That's nonsense tell me this though what's a goone to the God-Head
Then I save some for the Regal
Got my divo, or my Evo, for my ego
I'm a divo, I'm a negro, though my friends say

Chapter 2 in the book of Colossians.

I'm changed
