or
City High

It's a ghetto fairytale, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
It was two weeks before my son's birthday
The DT's ringing my bell
(Mam' we need to ask a few questions)

The told me the raid would go down anyday
And if I was smart I wouldn't tell
It was all over him yaw, my boyfriend the criminal
He was caught up in the game

And the FBI warned if I didn't go along
They'd make sure I never saw
My son or my boyfriend again
(Remember this, you are a convicted felon on probation)

But how could I just turn him in
(Mam' if you don't help us you'll never see your son again, trust me)
He would always tell me...

[Chorus]
I know you're afraid, but you can't leave me now
Lean on my shoulder, soon it'll be over
I'm trying to build our future
I'm doin' this for us
You're the only one I love, the only one I trust

I've been with him for about 4 years, and I swear
He gave me anything I could dream (anything)
But the life that he lived was a nightmare, I swear
It wasn't clean, he was blinded by the cream

All the murderous capaz, the trips to Las Vegas
Makin' millions from paper, blood-stained
Stuck in my head like a song, I saw every sin knew every wrong
And if I didn't go along, I'd never see my family again

(So what's it gonna be?)
(I know my life)
(One phone call from me and you're son's going to a foster home, answer the question)
(I don't have to answer shit)
He would always tell me...

[Chorus]
I know you're afraid, but you can't leave me now
Lean on my shoulder, soon it'll be over
I'm trying to build our future
I'm doin' this for us
You're the only one I love, the only one I trust

It was Saturday evening, we were home watchin' TV
He looked in my eyes, I wanted to cry
My son ran to hug him and kissed him goodnight
How could I do this? Plain do this when I knew he would die?

The Fed's rushed the door, yelled â??everyone on the floorâ??
My man pulled his arm, and started to fire
He was a soldier of cause in a war he couldn't win
But with out him I'm lost

So I stood by his side and went down with him
Oh, no no no no, no no no no, ya ya ya ya, oh
Whoo he would always tell me...

[Chorus: x2]
I know you're afraid, but you can't leave me now
Lean on my shoulder, soon it'll be over
I'm trying to build our future
I'm doin' this for us
You're the only one I love, the only one I trust
