"Chase That (Ambition)" Lyrics [edit]
by Lecrae | from the album Rehab: The Overdose

Uh, Started with hanginí posters on my bedroom walls
To battle rappiní for status up in the school halls
Just call me double sushi, thought I was to raw
And hip hop was my home I had my shoes off

6í3Ē in high school, well skip a hoop dream
If I donít blow up then maybe, Iíll try the school thing
I went to college to do my family a favor
But I couldnít pick a major cause I wanted to be major

I tried sellin work, but it didnít work
So I worked, shopping center clerk, finna go berzerk
Lunch Break , see my writing 16ís over Micky Dís
Skippin class, makin beats over 60 keys

And I love that,that even though Iím just chasing
Selfish Ambition couldnít tell your boy nothing
Watch out all you rappersí cause they finna let ĎCrae in
But I was sleepiní on the Son like Days Inn

(bridge)
Ay you can have the money
And you can have the fame
But me I want the Glory
Iím livin for the Name
See life is just a picture
I see outside the frame
Im livin for a kingdom that I ainít never seen

(chorus)
And imma chase that
Imma imma chase that
Found the key to life and best believe that imma play that (Glory)
Imma chase that
Imma imma chase that (glory)
Imma chase that
Imma imma chase that

Ugh
I remember chasin the green feelin blue
Only check Iím countin is the mic check, one two
All I wanted was the money and the fame and the new
Somebody on my arm when I walk inside the room

All I wanted was doom
The same kind Alexander the Great felt, when the Earth ran out of room
He conquered all he could, but yet heís feeliní consumed
By this never ending quest for glory he couldnít fuel
Like a typical fool, I would go hard
Shootin for the moon
But there only one Son , no Co-star
Chasin glory I shouldnít own
Instead of livin to make His name known
Iím runnin after his throne

I thought bein on TV, where every body could see me
Was nothing short of the easiest way I could see to please me
Iíll never be who I used to desperately want to be
Iím to worried bout the Lord getting credit instead of me

(bridge)
Ay you can have the money
And you can have the fame
But me I want the Glory
Iím livin for the Name
See life is just a picture
I see outside the frame
Im livin for a kingdom that I ainít never seen

(chorus)
And imma chase that (Glory)
Imma imma chase that
Found the key to life and best believe that imma play that (Glory)
Imma chase that
Imma imma chase that (glory)
Imma chase that
Imma imma chase that

I use to wanna do it big
When youíre only focused on yourself thatís small
And they, they use to tell me as a kid
That I could do anything that I want except fall
And now that I recall
I was chasing my goals
And everytime I caught em they multiplied into moí
I never even thought about whether the Lord approved
Call it selfish ambition
I call it, I'm makin moves

But history repeats itself
Evilís what it is
Cause Lucifer was cast away for doing what I did
Created by the God who spoke the Earth into existence
Instead of chasing the Fatherís glory he was chasin his
He lies to us all
Told Adam he could ball
ďWhy you followiní God when could go get it all?Ē
Iíll tell you whats better, or better yet worse
Chasin your own glory by doin the Lordís work
So holla if it hurts
But we were made for greater
Our greatest satisfaction is making His Name famous
So if weíre never named among the greatest, (or) they donít critically acclaim us
Aint nothing to be ashamed of
We gave it up for the Savior

Imma chase that
Imma imma chase that
And the Lordís goodness
You should-you should taste that
And you aint liviní till you liviní for his name, yeah (glory)
Imma chase that
Imma imma chase that
