[Intro]
Baby you misunderstand me now
Sometimes you see that I'm mad
No one can always be an angel
When everything goes wrong
You see some bad but I'm just a soul
Whose intentions are good
Ol' lord please don't let me be misunderstood

Yeah
Misunderstood
We do this for the people that walk that path
Trying to get to their dream

[Verse One]
He stood on the corner with the rest of them
Though we knew that this corner was not the best of him
Harsh streets and a life that caressed him
Dirt police domestic beef that festering
He knew the president was not addressing him
Though dead presidents was addressing him
Two kids from hot sex no protection
People don't see how age is affecting them
It gets hard so you get to God questioning
Can't find a job so you robbin and hustlin
You killed ma and sold dope for cuz and them
Can't believe they would be the ones buckin him
He on the ground he can feel god touchin him
He heard the sound of his mom sayin trust in him
At heaven gate sayin Lord please let me in or
Send me back to tell my people to be better me
Cuz we are...

Misunderstood
Cuz we are
Misunderstood

[Verse Two]
She danced and she danced for them
Her body moved but her mind was manicin
Thinking I don't know where they hands had teen
Relationship they had been so damaging
She thought back when she was at Howard
And dreams of doing scenes with Terence Howard and
Broadway Plays and dancing with Alfie 'n them.
The ones that make it ain't always the talented
So dreams get lost never to be found again
At first strippers seemed so empowering
Every girl want to do it now and then
But being me everyday is devouring
Cats with paper is what she put power in
Life would break her now she's powder in
She was high when she fell down and crowds surrounding
Heart was pounding in she fell into a deep sleep
The sirens sounding seen bright lights in the mist of clouds in
Talked to God feeling like his child again
Said Lord let me live So I can make you proud again
Cuz we are

I'm just human

The life that we lead will always lead us
And we pray that life will never leave us
It's the price we pay
I guess that's the reason why
My grandma say we all need Jesus
The life that we lead will always lead us
And we pray that life will never leave us
It's the price we pay
I guess that's the reason why
My grandma say we all need Jesus
