Background- Lecrae Ft C-Lite
Tuning: Standard


[Chorus:]
C
   I could play the background
G
   I could play the background
Am                       F
  Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
                     C
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                     G
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                    Am
And I could play the background, background
                      F
And you could take the lead


[Verse 1:]
C
It's evident you run the show, so let me back down
G
You take the leading role, and I'll play the background
Am
I know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
F
I'm sticking to your script, and I'm reading all your signs
C
I don't need my name in lights, I don't need a starring role
G
Why gain the whole wide world, If I'm just going lose my soul
Am
And my ways ain't purified, don't live according to Your Word
F
I can't endure this life without Your wisdom being heard
C
So word to every dancer, for a pop star
G
'Cause we all play the background, but mine's a rockstar
Am
Yeah, so if you need me I'll be staged right
F
Praying the whole world will start embracing stage fright
C
So let me fall back, stop giving my suggestions
G
'Cause when I follow my obsessions, I end up confessing
Am
That I'm not that impressive, matter of fact
F
I'm who I are, a trail of stardust leading to the superstar


[Chorus:]
C
I could play the background
G
I could play the background
Am                       F
  Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
                     C
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                     G
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                    Am
And I could play the background, background
                      F
And you could take the lead

[Verse 2:]
C
I had a dream that I was captain of my soul
G
I was master of my fate, lost control. and then I sank
Am
So I don't want to take the lead, 'cause I'm prone to make mistakes
F
All the folks who follow me, going end up in the wrong place
C
So let me just shadow you, let me trace your lines
G
Matter of fact, just take my pen, here, you create my rhymes
Am
'Cause if I do this by myself, I'm scared that I'll succeed
F
And no longer trust in you, 'cause I only trust in me
C
And see, that's how you end up headed to destruction
G
Paving a road to nowhere, pour your life out for nothing
Am
You pulled my card, I'm bluffing, You know what's in my hand
F
Me, I'm just going to trust you, You cause the dice to land
C
I'm in control of nothing, follow you at any cost
G
Some call it sovereign will, all I know is you the boss
Am
Man, I'm so at ease, I'm so content
F
I'll play the background, like it's an instrument


[Chorus:]
C
I could play the background
G
I could play the background
Am                       F
  Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
                     C
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                     G
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                    Am
And I could play the background, background
                      F
And you could take the lead

[Bridge:]
C
I know I'm safest when I'm in Your will, and trust Your Word
G
I know I'm dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurred
Am
And I ain't got no time to play life's foolish games
F
Got plenty aims, but do they really Glorify Your name
C
And it's a shame, the way I want to do these things for You
G
Don't even cling to you, take time to sit and gleam from You
Am
Seems You were patient in my ignorance
F
If ignorance is bliss, it's 'cause she never heard of this


[Chorus:](2x)
C
I could play the background
G
I could play the background
Am                       F
  Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
                     C
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                     G
So won't You take the lead, lead, lead
                    Am
And I could play the background, background
                      F
And you could take the lead
