People Like Me (像我這樣的人) - K'naan

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

 

And open doors to hurting people like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

Is it fair to say that I am stressing out

I'm stationed in Iraq and they won't let me out

My homeys said I was stupid for even joining

 

My counselor said that my decision was disappointing

 

How she had good for good state colleges

And with my good grades it wouldn't have been a problem

But they don't understand the power of significance

 

More than brilliance and certainly more than difference

 

And if you ask me now would I repeat it

 

Would I fight in a war I don't believe in

Well the answer is if not me where the cancer is

They been doing this before Jesus of Nazareth

And after all this time it is still deadly hazardous

And bush isn't really being all that inaccurate

 

When he says we're winning the war cos it's staggering

But that's cause we're killing everybody that we see

And most of us soldiers we can barely fall asleep

 

And time and time again I'm feeling incompetent

 

Cos my women back home we're constantly arguing

And I must be crazy cos all I'm obsessing with is

Her Myspace and Facebook and who's commenting

I swear to god if she's cheatin' I'm doing her a** in

I can tell with one look and it came to me

Sounding like something from a song hook

 

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

 

And open doors to hurting people like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

Meet Sarah the proud mother of young Sebastian

Suburban professional went to college in shton

 

In self pity she suddenly cried

 

Would my life be important if I suddenly died

 

Neighbors saying what a nice women she was

 

Keeping mostly to herself ever since the divorce

 

And with the company downsizing and the fall and all

She really shouldn't take it that personal at all

 

It wasn't her boss who had his eyes on her thighs

And got a rise from her rising off the desk though

 

And despite remembering saying no plenty of times

It was still a damn surprise being let go

 

And now stuck with a mortgage she can't afford

And too educated to blame the corporate world

She got on welfare and hated it case work a power tripping

And generally being degraded if

 

Nothing else she was treated sick

And ineffective which is the worst thing

 

That she'd been left with

 

Damn no magic from David Blane

No painter to pain this pain

No Morgan Freeman to narrate the shame

 

So she took refuge and prayer

 

Kinda like finding god in the phone book

And it came to her sounding something like a song hook

 

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

 

And open doors to hurting people like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

I guess I told you about myself to a degree

 

Just by telling you about people like me

 

But people like me they speak politely

 

They don't start no beef or peace why me

 

Everybody gotta eat but everybody doesn't

Which is why I want to tell you about my favorite cousin

He and I grew up where the sun shines

 

And we both partook with the gun crimes

And we both liked American rap rhymes

 

Even though we didn't understand one line

 

If you remember my line of notes in my last album

I talked about a close call with a grenade

I think we both must have been about 7th grade

But don't panic we both survived without damage

But we developed a bond like we survived the titanic

 

But when the country became frantic

 

My mother tried to get us out planned it

To the last detail except the plan got derailed

 

Cos there wasn't enough money for the plain tickets

How bitter when my mother had to chose who to take with her

 

So my cousin got left in the war and that's just hard to recall

 

But now I take refuge and prayer

 

Kinda like finding god in the phone book

It came to me sounding kinda like something from a song hook

 

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

 

And open doors to hurting people like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

Heaven is there a chance that you could come down

 

And open doors to hurting people like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me

 

People like me
