lyrics

Respect life, put the guns down
Respect night, let the sun down
Respect now, put ya phone down
wherever you IS in the present is a present
And my presence is a BLESSING
so COME ON IN you on the guest list…let’s go
 
Fool we don’t pop champagne we drink lemonaaade, all day
Rules, we do not complain, we make lemonaaaaade, out our pain
that’s champagne, real pain
real pain, sham pain
from you and I, (wait, UofI???), naw, that’s Champaign
if You was I, would you be off on this campaign, is it suicide?
if you know that bringing hope here is how careers die?
or do the K stand for Kamizake
the J is silent, it’s everywhere you can feel Him probably
surely, lately, I been up late with
demons in my basement
trying to get me to hate this
life, thinking I should be further and then I choke up
soon as I got silent, then the truth spoke up
it said, how you know you ain’t perfect? let that soak up
and soak in, you know how you know that you blessed?
(I woke up!)
 
Feeling Oh My God
Feeling myself, know why, cause I woke up
(I woke up!)
that’s all it take to be great y’all
(I woke up!)
in a special way
knew I was in good hands, cause I woke up
I woke up, I woke up this morning with my mind…
 
Mind in a good place, starting in a good space
so when they ask if I’m good, say I’m great yall
a strong mind I can take into the lion’s den
that’s why I gotta wake up throwing weights off
I heard the story bout the man who missed 9/11
cause he decided that he finally need a day off
and wonder how stress kill, say the best will
look to tomorrow, I’m just trying to see today y’all
thinking out loud looking at myself need to lose 20 pounds
and gain 150 pounds in my bank account
like it’s too much going on…live strong
I feel like every hour is determined by the minute
so 5 minutes complaining is like a death sentence
I fell in love with my image cause I saw God in it
they be like “why you so arrogant, man nothing even happened”
I be like I WOKE UP!
 
Feeling Oh My God
Feeling myself, know why, cause I woke up
(I woke up!)
that’s all it take to be great y’all
(I woke up!)
in a special way
knew I was in good hands, cause I woke up
I woke up, I woke up this morning with my mind…
 
today’s groove…is brought to you…by the letter J, and the number 2
I woke up this morning (4x) with my mind!
stayed on, rocking with the…you are now rocking with the
most So Blessed, that’s another one
give the summer some
I don’t feel worried bout nothing cause…I WOKE UP!
with my mind on you…woke up with my mind on you
