VERSE 1

FROM MY WINDOW ABOVE
TO THA STREETS BELOW
THA CONCRETE
WHO KNEW THAT A
SEED WOULD GROW
SURVIVED 16 YEARS OLD
SINGLE MAMA UP IN HARLEM
SEEN THIS BEFO
N EVEN THO HER JOB WAS MENIAL
SHE PROCEEDED THO TA FEED US BOTH
EVEN CLEAN THA FLOORS
TA KEEP FROM BEING BROKE
I LOVE U EVEN MORE

UR UNBELIEVABLE

UR UNBELIEVABLE

HOOK:
I WANT U TO REMEMBER
HOLD ON TO THA NIGHT
I HOPE YOU STILL REMEMBER
I’LL BE BY YOUR SIDE

VERSE 2

THA CITY ROBBED ME OF MY INNOCENCE
BUT IN A SENSE MY INNER SENSE
WAS AN ATTEMPT
TO PREVENT WHAT MY TRUE FEELINGS IS
U HAVE A WAY OF MAKING ME ADMIT TA IT
BUT WHEN U TURNED ME OUT
I LEARNED ABOUT WHAT LIVING IS
A KID WITH A VISION AS VIVID AS THA IMAGE
OF THA SISTINE CHAPEL
ON THA CEILING IS
GOT ME FEELING RICH
OH… FOR REAL

I WAS 10 YEARS OLD
STILL REMEMBERED IT... STILL REMINISCE
ON WHAT IT IS TA BE BLACK IN A CITY
WITTA DREAM SO BIG
IM IGNORANT TO THA FACT I BELIEVE I CAN LIVE IN IT

NOW IM LIVIN IT... I PICTURED IT... U WITNESSED IT

IM FEARLESS… YOU FEELIN THIS?

HOOK:
I WANT U TO REMEMBER
HOLD ON TO THA NIGHT
I HOPE YOU STILL REMEMBER
I’LL BE BY YOUR SIDE

VERSE 3

NOW TROUBLE COMES EASY
ON DA STREETS U WOULD TEASE ME
I KNOW U WOULDN'T BELIEVE ME
BUT SEEINGS BELIEVING
INNER CITY THAT BREED TEENS
TO BE ANYTHING THAT UR MIND BE CONCEIVING
MAKE A BLIND MAN SEE THINGS
INSTEADA CRIME SCENE AND BLEEDING
LEAVE U STUNG LIKE A BEE STINGS
OH…
DEN I STARTED BELIEVING I CAN BE ANYTHING
THAT MY MIND DREAMS
PICASSO, VAN GOGH, LEONARDO DA VINCI
THAT COULD BE ME
IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING ON THESE MEAN STREETS
I DONT EVEN KNOW THA MEANING

KNOW WHAT I MEAN G?

I KNOW YOU SEE ME

HOOK:
I WANT U TO REMEMBER
HOLD ON TO THA NIGHT
I HOPE YOU STILL REMEMBER
I’LL BE BY YOUR SIDE

VERSE 4

I WONT EVER FORGET WHERE I CAME FROM
EMPIRE STATE WHERE I CAME UP
REVOLVING DOORS AND TRAIN CARS
REVOLVERS BLOW FROM HANDGUNS
ITS MY TIME AND DA SKY SHINES
WIT STARS UP IN THA NIGHT TIME
GRAFFITI WALLS N OUTLINES
OUTSHINE ANYTHING U MIGHT FIND
IN MY TIME I SEEN THA LIME LIGHT
SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND
AND IM IN NY
CITY UH DA SKYLINE
YOU’LL FORVER BE ON MY MIND
ALWAYS BE IN MY EYES
THA BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE
TIL THA DAY THAT I DIE

NYC
NYC
NYC
