  • I'm coming home
    I'm coming home
    Tell the world I'm coming home
    Let the rain wash away all the pain of yesterday
    I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
    I'm coming home, I'm coming home
    Tell the world that I'm coming

    I'm back where I belong,
    Yeah I never felt so strong
    (I'm back baby)
    I feel like there's nothing that I can't try
    And if you with me put your hands high
    (Put your hands high)

    If you ever lost a light before,
    This ones for you
    And you, the dreams are for you

    I hear "The Tears of a Clown"
    I hate that song
    I always feel like they talking to me when it comes on
    Another day another Dawn
    Another Keisha, nice to meet ya, get the math I'm gone
    What am I 'posed to do when the club lights come on
    It's easy to be Puff, but its harder to be Sean
    What if the twins ask me why I ain't marry their mom (why, damn!)
    How do I respond?
    What if my son stares with a face like my own
    And says he wants to be like me when he's grown
    Shit! But I ain't finished growing
    Another night the inevitable prolongs
    Another day another dawn
    Just tell Keisha and Taneisha I'll be back in the morn'
    Another lie that I carry on
    I need to get back to the place I belong

    I'm coming home
    I'm coming home
    Tell the world that I'm coming home
    Let the rain wash away all the pain from yesterday
    I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
    I'm coming home, I'm coming home
    Tell the world that I'm coming, home

    "A House is Not A Home", I hate this song
    Is a house really a home when your loved ones are gone (no)
    And niggas got the nerve to blame you for it
    And you know you woulda took the bullet if you saw it
    But you felt it and still feel it
    And money can't make up for it or conceal it
    But you deal with it and you keep ballin'
    Pour out some liquor, play ball and we keep ballin'
    Baby we've been living in sin 'cause we've been really in love
    But we've been living as friends
    So you've been a guest in your own home
    It's time to make your house your own
    Pick up your phone, come on

    I'm coming home
    I'm coming home
    Tell the world that I'm coming home
    Let the rain wash away all the pain from yesterday
    I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
    I'm coming home, I'm coming home
    Tell the world that I'm coming, home

    "Ain't No Stopping Us Now", I love that song
    Whenever it comes on it makes me feel strong
    I thought I told y'all that we won't stop
    'Til we back cruising through Harlem, these old blocks
    Is what made me, saved me, drove me crazy
    Drove me away than embraced me
    Forgave me for all of my shortcomings
    Welcome to my homecoming
    Yeah it's been a long time coming
    Lot of fights, lot of scars, lot of bottles
    Lot of cars, lot of ups, lot of downs
    Made it back, lost my dog (I miss you big)
    And here I stand, a better man! (a better man)
    Thank you Lord (Thank you Lord)
    Thank you all!

    I'm coming home
    I'm coming home
    Tell the world that I'm coming home
    Let the rain wash away all the pain from yesterday
    I know my kingdom awaits and they've forgiven my mistakes
    I'm coming home, I'm coming home
    Tell the world that I'm coming, home
