"Drown" by Lecrae and John Legend

Lecrae partners with John Legend for this rap-hop/rap song, whose lyrics are almost Psalm-like. It's a honest cry to God for support and help in times of need. Lyrics below:


Tell me that you'll never let me down

'Cause you're my final breath before I drown


I'm drowning, I'm drowning

Lost in this world with these waves all around me

Deep in the darkness, where it's heartless

I don't know if I can make it

I'll be honest, and I'm fading, I'm fading

Trapped and I feel like it ain't no escaping

Down to the bottom

All these problems got me drinking

Might drown in this bottle

All this drama got me thinking


If I had one call would you answer it?

Or would you take back all of your promises?

'Cause I don't know who to turn to, or who to trust

I don't know who to turn to, or who to trust, so . . .


Tell me that you'll never let me down

'Cause you're my final breath before I drown


You're my last resort when it's too late

You're the only one who takes my pain away

So tell me that you'll never let me down


Come save me, come save me

Cause I've been in way over my head lately

Shame got me sinking

Gone off the deep end

Heart ache took my breath away

Now I'm barely breathing aye

I'm hoping, I'm hoping

'Cause this the only thing that keeps me sober

I feel like I'm losing it

Like "What am I doing here?"

I need you to bail me out

I need you to pull me in
