Song Lyrics

Dear God.. how can I explain myself?

[J] Oh God bless me indeed

When I`m so confused

[J] Enlarge my territory

[J] Place your love and protection over me at all times

Help me!

[J] Keep me away from evil

Somebody answer me! [echoes]

[J] Allow me not to cause pain

[Jay-Z]

Police in the background, screamin put the thing down

That`s how hard I was trying to put my thing down

Si-rens ringin out, old ladies screamin out

All this attention for me and I`m barely sixteen now

.. it`s feelin like a dream now

Handcuffed, roughed up, I`m tossed in the bing now

I`m lyin next to fiends now, that`s the end of the story

Let me bring y`all n*ggaz back to the very first scene now

December 4th, a child is born

Before I knew it, had my pops trousers on

That`s how we do it when the man of the house is gone

You either, stand or fall, I chose to stand

The hawk outside, so I blow my hand

It`s a cold cold world but I overstand

Tryin to stay focused but I feel hopeless damn

Can`t cope with bein broke, I`m a man - c`mon

[Chorus: R. Kelly]

Son don`t let these streets, get the best of you

I will be right by your side, when you goin through

Son just don`t let it (just don`t let it)

Just don`t let it (just don`t let it)

Just don`t let it (just don`t let it)

.. get the best of you

[R. Kelly]

Late one night I was, rollin the streets

Just, thinkin about what`s goin on with me and

trapped in this thug life, tryin to break free but

this thug life just keeps callin me

I`m livin life way too dangerously

I`m drownin in my misery

Looked in the mirror, there`s my enemy

Cause poppa never was a part of me

Take one step at a time, mama said

Sweet memories still remain in my head

All of my life been lied to, misled

Voices be like, "Don`t you wish you was dead?"

No ground to place my feet

I feel the fire under me

A way out is all I need

Somebody, answer me!

[Chorus + ad libs]

[Jay-Z]

Now the only thing left is more spirit to roam free

.. cause ain`t no goin home for me

It`s a cold cold world but I blew my hand

A true first cause I knew that man

I knew what he would do if I didn`t draw first

And I couldn`t stand the thought of my momma steppin foot inside a church

All I try to do is try to get up out the dirt

Guess he`s tryin to do the same, told me get up out his turf

I wanted to talk to him, but that sh*t`d never work

We was cut from the same cloth and what was under his shirt was his

momma`s rent, his young brother`s clothes

My nephew`s food, and with that I suppose

.. and with that I froze

Now my life is frozen in time behind these iron folds

And this story is told, for young soldiers

who never choose the life we chose

[Chorus + (ad libs)]

[R. Kelly]

Tears in my eyes as I look up, I`m tryin to

hold back my pride but reality is screamin

Gotta get a job cause mo-mma also screamin

Streets are just like drugs, and it`s like I`m out here fiendin

Forget all the hits in the industry, cause

ain`t no exceptions in this game for me, look

Neither God or my enemies, I

choose God cause he understands, this

young man with a thuggish heart

Whole world in his hands but still torn apart

Like I`m so close, but it`s still so far

Nightmares of me in a swervin car, ohhh

No ground to place my feet (my feet)

I feel the fire under me (heyyy)

A way out is all I need (all I need)

Somebody, answer me!

[Chorus + ad libs]
