In 2019, things gon’ be different Had to fight me, self was the villain Had to lose life so that I’d find it Only through strife I know what life is 2019, things gon' be different Had to fight me, I forgot why I’m living Yeah, I forgot but now I remember The thing that made me captivated—thass God Thass God, thass God, thass God Ain’t no question thass God Thass God, thass God, thass God Ain’t no question thass God I used to hate people who were fake as can be Then I realized nobody’s faker than me Busy trying to fight the evil in society But I never took the time to fight the evil that’s inside of me Focused on my goals I forgot about my soul When I had to take it slow I just tried to keep on going Oh yeah, that’ll kill you or kill the ones you love God’ll take away the very thing you won’t give up Where you think I was? I ain’t silent just because Had to face my demons, I ain’t even done, I ain’t done I got all these things that been keeping me down I gotta believe if I’m gon’ make it out I don’t really under stand it I just know he’s planned it Got to trust his plan instead of trusting in this planet Man it’s been a lot to balance still I’m barely standing But on my way to land so in 2019 Things gon’ be different Had to fight me, self was the villain Had to lose life so that I’d find it Only through strife I know what life is 2019, things gon' be different Had to fight me, I forgot why I’m living Yeah, I forgot but now I remember The thing that made me captivated—thass God Thass God, thass God, thass God Ain’t no question thass God Thass God, thass God, thass God Ain’t no question thass God It’s a new year, I’m going through it but who isn’t? I’m just trying to learn to see what God is doing in ruin The same man who taught me to respect women Cheated on his wife and she left, no respect in a man All talk, all talk, homie, you were all talk Thought you brought me here but truth is that was all God So shocked at what you fell into Then I saw as long as I’m faking, everybody else will too Yeah, I see it now, you won’t be around But God’ll keep his child, God’ll keep his child Yeah I put my trust in my plans, that’s where I went wrong I started listening to self, that’s where I got lost I told myself I’d drop a song about a year ago He had different plans—I ain’t get the m-e-m-o Yeah, the Lord was revealing my soul needed healing And no, I ain’t listen, but listen—in 2019 Things gon’ be different Had to fight me, self was the villain Had to lose life so that I’d find it Only through strife I know what life is 2019, things gon' be different Had to fight me, I forgot why I’m living Yeah, I forgot but now I remember The thing that made me captivated—thass God Thass God, thass God, thass God Ain’t no question thass God Thass God, thass God, thass God Ain’t no question thass God

Yeah it’s been a while but I been around And I don’t know his plan but I know his hand’s been All over my life, let’s see the highlights Dated three years and she left Got in a wreck that wrecked my passenger and that got me wrecked I could never count my blessings Never could get perspective I could never see the lessons he was telling me till I bent my knees Yeah I, I made it through God’s on my side, that’s the truth Live the valley to live the peak To get the victory, you have to lose I never would’ve made it on my own ‘Swhy I go together, not alone I face the challenges, showcase the talented Embrace the fam, trying to change Atlanta, oh no Never been the type to speak my mind, no Started rapping and it changed my life like whoa None of this would happen if it weren’t for my God So I’m telling y’all, he’s never failed and never will When life gets harder and harder And the lights get darker and darker I can feel your gravity all over me And I can see yes you’re undeniably All over my life, all over my life Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life All over my life, all over my life Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life Yeah yeah, yeah yeah Never thought I could ever leave that tunnel Never could I be nobody I thought I really had to get out to feel the relief I’d never feel the relief in my spot We try to get away from pain But life just doesn’t operate that way I spent so many seasons treating it like it’s evil but it ain’t that way We hate the pain so we build walls Then we hate the way that we feel not It’s vain to face the pain and aim to make a great escape when you will not Tell me, can you skip autumn when it’s coming? no no Then why you think you’re safe from suffering if you running? I've been there before trying to escape, learning to be thrown ‘gainst the Rock of Ages Is teaching me not to leave the grief, got to be on these knees and pause Something’s gotta give, spring summer autumn winter Never rush the process ever, let it run its course Stay in the season you in ‘cause you meant to be in it, for when Life gets harder and harder And the lights get darker and darker I can feel your gravity all over me And I can see yes you’re undeniably All over my life, all over my life Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life All over my life, all over my life Yeah, I can see the blessings all over my life Yeah yeah, yeah yeah

about

These two songs are the result of a suuuuuper difficult couple of years. I went through a ton of stuff—transition, loss, bitterness, illness—and still, God's has been faithful through it all.
