Come on home let yourself heal
You could sleep for a thousand years
And I won’t let you disappear
Let your heart beat here

You’ve been running far and wide
Doing what you hope is right
Chasing what you feel inside
And I will take your path as mine

I feel it in my ribs
Feel it in my soul
The pulse just grows
So loud and so clear
Let your heart beat here
Let your heart beat here

Winters come to take me away
I wear my ring to know what’s at stake
And when the days work at their own pace
You’ll remain my time and place

I feel it in my ribs
Feel it in my soul
The pulse just grows
So loud and so clear
Let your heart beat here
So loud and so clear
Let your heart beat here
Yeah, let your heart beat here

We found our way past our youthful fears
And fought our way through the pain and tears
And we drove our stakes in the place most dear
And let our hearts beat

I feel it in my ribs
Feel it in my soul
The pulse just grows
So loud and so clear
Let your heart beat here
So loud and so clear
Let your heart beat here
Yeah, let your heart beat here
Let your heart beat here

[Hook: Aloe Blacc and Lin-Manuel Miranda]
I wrote my way out
When the world turned its back on me
I was up against the wall
I had no foundation
No friends and no family to catch my fall
Running on empty, with nothing left in me but doubt
I picked up a pen
And wrote my way out (I wrote my way out)

[Verse 1: Nas]
I picked up the pen like Hamilton
Street analyst, now I write words that try to channel ’em
No political power, just lyrical power
Sittin’ on a crate on a corner, sippin’ for hours
Schemin’ on a come up, from evening’to sun up
My man awaitin’ trial, misdemeanors we younger
Courtroom prejudice, insufficient evidence
Jailhouse lawyers, these images still relevant
Flickerin’ lights inside my project hall
Sickenin’, the mice crawl all night long
And ’87 Reaganism, many pages I’ve written on
Writin’ songs about rights and wrongs and bails bonds
Master bedroom, bigger than the crib that I was raised at
I’m the architect like I wrote the code to Waze app
I’m driven, black Elohim from the streets of Queens
The definition of what It Was Written means
Know what I mean?

[Hook: Aloe Blacc and Lin-Manuel Miranda]
I wrote my way out
When the world turned its back on me
I was up against the wall
I had no foundation
No friends and no family to catch my fall
Running on empty, there was nothing left in me but doubt
I picked up a pen
And I wrote my way out (I wrote my way out)

[Verse 2: Dave East]
I really wrote my way up out of 6E
Develop relationships with fiends, I know they miss me
Before the metrocards, it was tokens, I did the ten speed
Never had wrote a rhyme in my life, what was a sixteen?
At sixteen, arrested in housin’, trips to the mountains
Came right back, trappin’ off couches, watchin’ for mouses
Only tools we was posed with, had a spot, smoke lit
The hate is just confusion, pay attention how them jokes switch
Diadora was my favorite, the Mark Buchanans
Mama couldn’t afford them, I learned everythin’ on the border
That’s a big 8, Clicquot parties with private dancers with no mixtape
Bumble Bee Tuna, now we could get steak
I persevered, composition, I kept it close
Competition near, I’m a Spartan without the spear
Three hundred rhymes, it was written before I wrote it
Opportunity knockin’, might miss it, that window closin’
This poetry in motion, I’m a poet

[Hook: Aloe Blacc and Lin-Manuel Miranda]
I wrote my way out
When the world turned its back on me
I was up against the wall
I had no foundation
No friends and no family to catch my fall
Running on empty, there was nothing left in me but doubt
I picked up a pen
And wrote my way out (I wrote my way out)

[Verse 3: Lin-Manuel Miranda]
High speed, dubbin’ these rhymes in my dual cassette deck
Runnin’ out of time like I’m Jonathan Larson’s rent check
My mind is where the wild things are, Maurice Sendak
In withdrawal, I want it all, please give me that pen back
Y’all, I caught my first beatin’ from the other kids when I was caught readin’
"Oh, you think you smart? Blah! Start bleedin’"
My pops tried in vain to get me to fight back
Sister tapped my brains, said, pssh, you’ll get ’em right back
Oversensitive, defenseless, I made sense of it, I pencil in
The lengths to which I’d go to learn my strengths and knock ’em senseless
These sentences are endless, so what if they leave me friendless?
Damn, you got no chill, fuckin’ right I’m relentless
I know Abuela’s never really gonna win the lottery
So it’s up to me to draw blood with this pen, hit an artery
This Puerto Rican’s brains are leakin’ through the speakers
And if he can be the shinin’ beacon this side of the G.W.B and
Shine a light when it’s gray out

[Bridge: Aloe Blacc and Lin-Manuel Miranda]
I wrote my way out
Oh, I was born in the eye of a storm
No lovin’ arms to keep me warm
This hurricane in my brain is the burden I bear
I can do without, I’m here (I’m here)
Cause I wrote my way out

[Outro: Nas, Dave East, Lin-Manuel Miranda]
I picked up the pen like Hamilton
I wrote my way out of the projects
Wrote-wrote my way out of the projects
Picked up the pen like Hamilton
I wrote my way out of the
Wrote-wrote my way out of the projects
I wrote my way out
Picked up the pen like Hamilton
I wrote my way out of the

[Spoken: Nas & Lin-Manuel Miranda]
(I wrote my way out)
Really, I saw like a hole in the rap game, so if I wanted to put my little two cents in the game, then it would be from a different perspective
(I wrote my way out)
I thought that I would represent for my neighborhood and tell their story, be their voice, in a way that nobody has done it
Tell the real story

[Intro]
I come here today to talk about how I feel
And I feel like that we are treated differently than other people
And I don’t like how we’re treated
Just because of our color doesn’t mean anything to me

[Pre-Chorus]
This just the way I feel
Mind’s been racing so long, yeah
It’s just no way to deal
With these problems alone

[Chorus]
And I really can’t take it no more
I’ve been fighting temptations, my Lord
I’m young and I’m restless
(And I really can’t help it)
I never felt selfish before
I’ve been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
(I said Lord, can you help me?)

[Verse 1]
Now everybody got problems, yeah
But wouldn’t know what way to solve ’em
I really came up from the bottom
Strugglin’, my momma on her last dollar
Hustlin’ and I’ve been puttin’ in these hours
The government been tryna take away what’s ours
It’s really all about the money and the power
I just wanna see my people empowered
Uh, uh, tell me how we gon’ shape this vision
Complainin’ all day, but in the same condition
If you wanna make change, it’s gon’ take commitment
Some people enslaved by they religion
Can’t emancipate them from the mental prisons
What I seen through optics transform to wisdom
Watch me use my prophets, get ’em all to listen
I’ve been on a mission, ah

[Chorus]
And I really can’t take it no more
I’ve been fighting temptations, my Lord
I’m making them restless
(And I really can’t help it)
I never felt selfish before
I’ve been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
(I said Lord, can you help me?)

[Verse 2]
Now everybody got vices, yeah
But wouldn’t know what good advice is
Until they leave ’em lifeless
Another mama cryin’, it’s another crisis
Lord knows we just tryna live righteous
Are you willin’ just to make the sacrifices?
I know we can’t continue livin’ like this
And I’ll never sell my soul ’cause that’s priceless, uh, uh
Tell me how we gon’ make a livin’
Hustle on the block, who gon’ save the children?
Man it’s all a plot and I’m just revealin’
The media just tryna make a villain
I just take the pain and a paint a picture
Voices in my head, I hear the whispers
When I feel this way, inhale the swisher
Or I sip the liquor, ah

[Chorus]
And I really can’t take it no more
I’ve been fighting temptations, my Lord
I’m making them restless
(And I really can’t help it)
I never felt selfish before
I’ve been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
(I said Lord, can you help me?)

[Pre-Chorus]
This just the way I feel
Mind’s been racing so long, yeah
It’s just no way to deal
With these problems alone

[Chorus]
And I really can’t take it no more
I’ve been fighting temptations, my Lord
I’m making them restless
(I said, Lord can you help me?)
I never felt selfish before
I’ve been living so reckless, I know
Tell me Lord, can you help me?
(I said Lord, can you help me?)

[Outro]
Do not stop
We are black people and we shouldn’t have to feel like this
We shouldn’t have to protest because you are treating us wrong
We do this because we need to and we have rights

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold
Maybe you’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe I’m just too demanding (Maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father too bold (Ya know he’s too bold)
Maybe you’re just like my mother (Maybe you’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (She’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other (Why do we scream, why)
This is what it sounds like

When doves cry
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)
When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry)

Don’t cry (Don’t Cry)

When doves cry
When doves cry
When doves cry

When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry, doves cry)
Don’t cry
Darling don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t don’t cry

When he told you you’re not good enough
When he told you you’re not right
When he told you you’re not strong enough
To put up a good fight
When he told you you’re not worthy
When he told you you’re not loved
When he told you you’re not beautiful
That you’ll never be enough

Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
Cause fear he is a liar

When he told you were troubled
You’ll forever be alone
When he told you you should run away
You’ll never find a home
When he told you you were dirty
And you should be ashamed
When he told you you could be the one
That grace could never change

Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
Cause fear he is a liar

Let Your fire fall and cast out all my fears
Let Your fire fall Your love is all I feel

Fear he is a liar
He will take your breath
Stop you in your steps
Fear he is a liar
He will rob your rest
Steal your happiness
Cast your fear in the fire
Cause fear he is a liar
