Comin' from Where I'm from (Radio Mix) (Radio Mix)

Anthony Hamilton

Sitting here, guess I didn' make bail
Got time and a story to tell
Started when I was nine years old
Woke up and daddy was gone
I started hustling and the couldn't tell me nothing
Fronting in the hood, trying to be somebody
My soul was on empty
I was searching for something
Tried to be good
Tried to keep from trouble
Living too fast
Trying to make a good 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
Sometimes you gotta walk to work
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' really looking guess I found it
Five foot three light brown skinned
Coming from the university
Lifestyle looking kind of lovely
Didn't know she had much game
Down to ride out, even take the train
Even take her to a poker game
Top notch fried chicken and sushi
Tried to be good
Tried to treat you like a lady
Tried to be your friend
Turned out that you were shady

Sometimes it gets lonely
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Some times ain't what they seem to be
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Some times would get the best of me
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from

Well, tried to be good (I tried, I tried)
Wanted nothing but to love somebody
Didn't want to die young
Steady hustling trying to feed my family
Too scared to have kids and like daddy did
'Cause I'm so scared of failing
Sometimes it gets hard
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from

Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you gotta moan
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you gotta cry a little 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 get a little worried
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes you get lost out of touch
Comin' from where I'm from, I'm from
Sometimes I think I pray a little to 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
