The Believer (信仰者) - Common/John Legend (約翰·傳奇)

Written by:Common/Derek Dudley/Mike Chavez/No I.D.

I believe in the light

That shines and will never die

 

Oh I believe the fire you burns

We stay alive

They will talk about us

 

Like they talked about

The kings before us

They

 

These are the words of a believer

Achiever leader of the globe

Feeding souls of those in need

I bleed the blood of the struggle

Walking over troubled puddles

Hustles in my chest

No hustle no progress

Extremities of life and it's process

Birth of a son death of another

With love I can rest both mothers

And told 'em who's in control

Is the one that's above us

I walk where money talks

And love stutters

Body language of a nation

Going through changes

The young become dangerous

Pain gets spent into anger

Anger gets sent through the chamber

It's tough when your own

Look like strangers

We are the sons of gangsters

And stone rangers

If he could how would

Ernie barnes paint us

Look at the picture

Hard not to blame us

But time forgives and the chi

Where the young die often

Do they end up in a coffin

Because we haven't taught them

Is it what we talking

We really ain't walking

Dudes hustlers pay

How much did it cost 'em

Find myself on the same

Corner that we lost 'em

Real talking

In they ear like a walkman

Thoughts spin around

The corner to the world

When I see them

I see my baby girl

Believe

I believe in the light

That shines and will never die

 

Oh I believe the fire you burns

We stay alive

They will talk about us

 

Like they talked about

The kings before us

They

 

The lord lives among us

The young uns hunger

Become a means to get it

By any means necessary

Under pressure

Children feeling lesser

With the steel up on the dresser

Killin' will aggressors

Destiny's children

Survivors soldiers

In front of buildings they eyes look older

Hard to see blessings

In the violent culture

Face against weapons sirens holsters

That ain't the way

That langston hughes wrote us

Soul controllers on the

Shoulders of moses and noah

We go from being

Oppressors to oprah

Cultivated to overcome

Ever since we came overseas

Today and the way

That you can see we determined

Solar keeps burning

Shawty's know to keep learning

Lesson's in our life

But life stripes

That we earning

Took raps advice

That christ is returning

Like a thief in the night

I write the beacons of light

For those of us

In dark alleys and parched valleys

Street kids spark rallies

Of the conscience conquerors of a contest

That seems beyond us

Even through the unseen

I know that god watches

From one king's dream

He was able to barack us

 

The prophets nothing can stop us

I believe in the light

That shines and will never die

 

Oh I believe the fire you burns

We stay alive

They will talk about us

 

Like they talked about

The kings before us

They will talk about us

I know I know I know

Our dreams won't turn to dust

 

They will talk about us

I know I know I know

Our dreams won't turn to dust

 

They will talk about us

I know I know I know

Our dreams won't turn to dust

 

They
