Comin' From Where I'm From Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sittin here guess I didn't make bail
Got time and a story to tell
Started when I was nine years old
Woke up my daddy was gone
I started hustlin they couldn't tell me nothin
Frontin in the hood tryin to be somebody
My soul was on empty
I was searchin for something

[Pre-chorus]
Tried to be good; Tried to keep from trouble
Livin too fast; Tryin to make good on a hustle

[Chorus]
Sometimes it gets rough
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Times got hard
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Some times you gotta walk to work (yeah)
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you gotta do a little dirt

[Verse 2]
Wasn't really lookin guess I found it
Five foot three, light brown skin
Comin from the university
Nice style, lookin kinda lovely
Didn't know she had much game
Down to ride out, even take the train
Even took her to a poker game
She's top notch from fried chicken to sushi

[Pre Chorus]
Tried to be good, (I tried) tried to treat you like a lady
Tried to be a friend, turned out that you were shady

[Chorus]
Sometimes it gets lonely
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Thangs aint what they seem to be
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you get a little angry
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you get the best of me

[Bridge]
Well, tried to be good (I tried)
Wanted nothing but to love somebody
Didn't wanna die young
Steady hustlin tryin to feed my family
Too scared to have kids
And do like daddy did
Cuz I'm so scared of failin
Sometimes it gets hard
Comin from where I'm from

[Chorus]
Comin from where I'm, I'm from
Sometimes you gotta moan
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you gotta cry a little bit louder
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you gotta fight the pain
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you gotta walk alone
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you get a little worried
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you get lost outta touch
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes I think I pray a little bit too much
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from

Sometimes I get a little scared
Comin from where I'm from, I'm from
[2x]
