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

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
Top notch from fried chicken to sushi

Tried to be good, 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
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from

Well, tried to be good
Wanted nothin' 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 to 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
(Sometimes I get a little scared)
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
