[Chorus:]
C I could play the background
G I could play the background
Am F Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
CSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
GSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
AmAnd I could play the background, background
FAnd you could take the lead
[Verse 1:]
CIt's evident you run the show, so let me back down
GYou take the leading role, and I'll play the background
AmI know I miss my cues, know I forget my lines
FI'm sticking to your script, and I'm reading all your signs
CI don't need my name in lights, I don't need a starring role
GWhy gain the whole wide world, If I'm just going lose my soul
AmAnd my ways ain't purified, don't live according to Your Word
FI can't endure this life without Your wisdom being heard
CSo word to every dancer, for a pop star
G'Cause we all play the background, but mine's a rockstar
AmYeah, so if you need me I'll be staged right
FPraying the whole world will start embracing stage fright
CSo let me fall back, stop giving my suggestions
G'Cause when I follow my obsessions, I end up confessing
AmThat I'm not that impressive, matter of fact
FI'm who I are, a trail of stardust leading to the superstar
[Chorus:]
CI could play the background
GI could play the background
Am F Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
CSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
GSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
AmAnd I could play the background, background
FAnd you could take the lead
[Verse 2:]
CI had a dream that I was captain of my soul
GI was master of my fate, lost control. and then I sank
AmSo I don't want to take the lead, 'cause I'm prone to make mistakes
FAll the folks who follow me, going end up in the wrong place
CSo let me just shadow you, let me trace your lines
GMatter 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
FAnd no longer trust in you, 'cause I only trust in me
CAnd see, that's how you end up headed to destruction
GPaving a road to nowhere, pour your life out for nothing
AmYou pulled my card, I'm bluffing, You know what's in my hand
FMe, I'm just going to trust you, You cause the dice to land
CI'm in control of nothing, follow you at any cost
GSome call it sovereign will, all I know is you the boss
AmMan, I'm so at ease, I'm so content
FI'll play the background, like it's an instrument
[Chorus:]
CI could play the background
GI could play the background
Am F Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
CSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
GSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
AmAnd I could play the background, background
FAnd you could take the lead
[Bridge:]
CI know I'm safest when I'm in Your will, and trust Your Word
GI know I'm dangerous when I trust myself, my vision blurred
AmAnd I ain't got no time to play life's foolish games
FGot plenty aims, but do they really Glorify Your name
CAnd it's a shame, the way I want to do these things for You
GDon't even cling to you, take time to sit and gleam from You
AmSeems You were patient in my ignorance
FIf ignorance is bliss, it's 'cause she never heard of this
[Chorus:](2x)
CI could play the background
GI could play the background
Am F Cause I know sometimes I get in the way
CSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
GSo won't You take the lead, lead, lead
AmAnd I could play the background, background
FAnd you could take the lead
