About “YOU”:

The song takes you on an old-school journey that’s reminiscent of Maxwell coupled with a Marvin Gaye-like musical backdrop. It is definitely a unique sound for the Gospel/Christian genre and is musically full; however, it lyrically serves as a simple and practical explanation of faith which seems to fit perfectly well with the artist’s carefree style.

Verse
People always ask me why am I always so happy and never down
and why I’m always laughing and how they never seem to catch me with a frown.
Some may think it’s not real and I know that a lot feel it’s a show,
so I wrote this song to tell you about someone I am familiar with and know.

Chorus
So I tell ‘em that it’s YOU.
You’re the reason why I smile.
You pick me up when I am low.
That’s what you get when you’re His child.

There’s so much that I can say
about the man I’m referring to.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
All the praise belong to you.

Verse
I wake up every morning thankful of a new day dawning just to see
of more blessings that the Lord has in store for me.
Now you may not understand about the man I’m talking ‘bout.
I’ma say His name again and when this song ends, try Him out.

Chorus
So I tell ‘em that it’s YOU.
You’re the reason why I smile.
You pick me up when I am low.
That’s what you get when you’re His child.

There’s so much that I can say
about the man I’m referring to.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
All the praise belong to you.

Now Lord, you are my best friend I’ve found.
And Lord, you are the reason that makes the world go round.
Now you may not get the credit ‘cause the world seems to forget that you are the reason why they’re here.
So I’ma be the voice to lift your name up and rejoice and make it clear.

Chorus
So I tell ‘em that it’s YOU.
You’re the reason why I smile.
You pick me up when I am low.
That’s what you get when you’re His child.

There’s so much that I can say
about the man I’m referring to.
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus! (Repeat)
All the praise belong to you.
