Got To B Tru

© 1992. Written by Stephen Curtis Chapman and Toby McKeehan


Well normall at this point you'd hear me sing
And I'd be doing that acoustic guitar thing
So by now you're probably wondering what's going on
Cause this is really starting to sound like one of those rap songs
Well let me tell you 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 hope
You see I grew up in a state where the grass is blue
So if it's gonna be believable it's got to b tru

It's got to b tru, I gotta be living what I say I believe
It's got to b tru, even when nobody but Jesus is watching you
It's got to be tru, every single minute of every day
If anybody's ever gonna look at me and say, hey, it's got to be tru

You hear me saying that it's got to b tru
And now my homebody Toby wants to talk to you
Check it out I got a next door neighbor
And I can tell he's been watching my behavior
Yo he's 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, hypocrisy
It's gonna take some living proof to break through those walls
Yeah it's got to be tru if he'll believe it at all
