Got to be True

This is a rap song done by Steven Curtis Chapman with Toby Mac.  I love it because it has a great message about living out your faith.  Here it is!


Well normally at this point, you'd hear me sing
And I'd be doin' that acoustic guitar thing
So by now you're probably wondring what's going on
Cause this is really startin to sound like one of those rap songs
Well let me tell ya what the boy's up to
You see I like rap music and the beat box groove
And sometimes I gotta admit I close all the doors
And wave my arms around and I pace the floor
But then I crack up laughing, I gotta stop
And just face the facts the boy don't hip hop
You see I grew up in a state where the grass is blue
So if it's gonna be believeable its got to b tru
It's got to b tru I've gotta be living what I say I believe
It's got to b tru even when nobody but Jesus is watching me
It's got to b tru every single minute of every day
If anybody's ever gonna look at me and say hey it's got to b tru
You hear me saying that it's got to b tru
And now my homeboy Toby wants to talk to you
True check it out I got a next door neighbor
And I can tell he's been watchin my behavior
Yo he heard that I'm a Christian guy
He wants to know if that's the truth or a lie
He's got a list of reasons not to believe
Like doubt, dissolution, hypocricy
It's gonna take some living proof to break through those walls
Yea it's got to b tru if he'll believe it at all
It's got to b tru I've gotta be living what I say I believe
It's got to b tru even when nobody but Jesus is watching me
It's got to b tru every single minute of every day
If anybody's ever gonna look at me and say hey it's got to b tru
From the T to the R to the U to the E
G-O-T-T-O-B-T-R-U
From the T to the R to the U to the E
Ya got to be true to what you say you believe
G-O-T-T-O-B-T-R-U
It's got to b tru
I gotta let the light of Jesus' love come shinin thru oh, yeah
It's got to b tru I've gotta be living what I say I believe
It's got to b tru even when nobody but Jesus is watching me
It's got to b tru every single minute of every day
If anybody's ever gonna look at me and say hey
it's got to b, it's got to b
Got to b tru I've gotta be living what I say I believe
It's got to b tru even when nobody but Jesus is watching me
It's got to b tru every single minute of every day
If anybody's ever gonna look at me and say hey
Got to b
Got to b
Got to b tru
G-O-T-T-O-B-T-R-U [repeat til fade]


In His name, 
See ya!
