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
Tried to be good, tried to keep from trouble
Livin' too fast, tryin' to make good on a hustle

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
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
(Yeah)

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
Tried to be good, I tried, tried to treat you like a lady
Tried to be a friend, turned out that you were shady

Sometimes it gets lonely
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Thangs ain't 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

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

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

Sometimes I get a little scared
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
