A Capella

by Chase Goehring

I'm out to be the best me that I can be
working on my craft day in and out
you know that's what I'm about
no, I'm not aiming to become famous
I just wanna play and sing this

the only competition I see is myself
I got a tunnel vision kinda like a telescope
and I'm looking at
and I'm picking at
everything that I can do to become better

I see a lot of people I hear a lot of things they're talking about diamond rings, money things
I guess that happens when you hit the top become unsatisfied with everything
that you already got

you say it's all about the music but mess around with girls who do it yeah
you lied to your fans
I'm singing from my shadow you can call that shade

my verse is straight and my flow is hard
I paint my songs like a work of art
I never grew up listening to other stuff
you could say I'm kind of different
maybe just a bluff

but let me tell you I am 100 percent reality
I ain't dancing around in a fantasy, no
only sea that I'll be dancing in is a sea of fans in a sold out MSG

maybe a year or two, maybe a year or three
it doesn't phase me, honestly
even if I don't make it by then
I'll still be doing shows so I'll make it in the end yeah

and if you think I'm irrelevant well then I must be relevant
cause you took the time to listen to my song
that I wrote on my bed in my bedroom

I don't sing for a backtrack
I write songs in my snapback
I don't care what they say
I'm keeping it real kinda like in A Capella

I don't hook up with strangers
I've got class and respect
I don't care what they say keeping it real kinda like in A Capella

A Capella A-A Capella A Capella A-A Capella
A Capella A-A Capella
keeping it real kinda like in A Capella

sometime I need to focus on myself and what I need sometime I feel like my mind is on it's own kind of speed but I guess that the way it goes when you try to write like a beast
this is my feast

don't ever classify me as a rapper
I spit a little bit and
I can talk fast but that's it

I ain't about the gold chains
ain't about the fake girls
ain't about the high life
ain't about the money

see my lyrics are different
they come alive the minute I start to sing them
I would say that I put my soul all up in them
but I am a ginger you know how that goes

my world comes together the moment my pen hits the paper like I'm a jail breaker but
I have committed no crime
to be charged for, you see me in bars
but don't know what I stand for

I don't sing for a backtrack
I write songs in my snapback
I don't care what they say I'm keeping it real kinda like in A Capella

I don't hook up with strangers
I've got class and respect
I don't care what they say keeping it real kinda like in A Capella

A Capella A-A Capella A Capella A-A Capella
A Capella A-A Capella
keeping it real kinda like in A Capella

Wait
my finger bleed when I pluck strings
I was never raised to play this guitar with a pick thing at times people say I sound British when I say things
when I say things
say things

now they coming to me
asking if I wanna be the next big thing
I'm the next best thing buddy
you better get your facts straight
I don't need a record label to label my true talent great

cause if the people like it then the people buy it
why would I wanna hire another writer to take it higher
foolish like the gold that you place in my hands
cause that's fool's gold
and I'm not fooled by this fame game
it's so lame
cause I'm verified on the inside
don't need a blue check to be satisfied
ah

pluck strings when I play this take names when I play this take notes when I play this
break strings when I play this take names when I play this take notes when I play this
break strings when I play this take names when I play this take notes when I play this
break strings when I play this take names when I play this take notes when I play this
you already know

I don't sing for a backtrack
I write songs in my snapback
and I don't care what they say I'm keeping it real kinda like in A Capella

I don't hook up with strangers
I've got class and respect
and I don't care what they say
and I don't care what they say
cause I'm keeping it real
keeping it real kinda like in A Capella
