Patrick Stump - This City (feat. Lupe Fiasco) lyrics


Now, what if I told you my city was the best?
And my city was a threat to the rest?
And my city was a threat to the rest?

This city is my city
And I love it
Yeah, I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way I'm gonna stay

From every corner to every block, yeah
Whether it's warm or stormin' or down right stupid hot, hot
From the problems all the way to the solutions, yeah
Forget all the drugs and gang corruption and pollution, no

'Cause this city is my city (oh)
And I love it
Yeah, I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way I'm gonna stay here

For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh

Now what if I told you my city was the best?
That my city was a threat to the rest?
But you can't rest inside my city
My city so cold if you ain't dressed
And what they accept, better have the right address
Parts of my city, certain colors can't step
And sadly, I'm talkin' bout the color of your skin
Sorry, my brother, can't let you in
'Cause the property value might go down
To a level that's economically unacceptable
And socially taboo for us to live around you
Is this what it's down to?
Root for the same team, maybe have the same dream
Not the same reality
Actually, mine is a bad education and gentrification
Despite all the above I love

This city is my city
And I love it
Yeah, I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way, I'm gonna stay here

For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh
For life, uh huh

You can take my picture
You can take my name
But you're never gonna take my city away
'Cause you, you burn it to the ground
Oh, you let it flood
But it's in my blood

'Cause this city is my city
And I love it
Yeah, I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way, I'm gonna stay here for life
