Mavado - The Truth (Lyrics)


Yuh see the ghetto weh mi come from, yuh see the place weh mi grow
The moment mi open mi eyes, the people mi know
A nuff a dem nuh really waan see yuh mek it inna life a that mi know
A nuff a dem try hard fi wul mi down and haffi let me go

Dem penalize me fi mi picture dem perpetuated
And tell mi from the ghetto mi fi separated
But music a mi joy a it mi celebrate wid
Mi never born wid gold spoon a it mi elevate wid
So why you waan fi keep the youths uneducated
Jah see yuh build yuh prison dem incarcerated
Every ghetto have a star weh fi overrated
Yuh mek it big dem seh yuh gang related

But Jah Jah knows my heart stays in the ghetto
Even though you know that am so far

A nuff a dem nuh really waan see yuh mek it inna life a that mi know
And fi all a who a try hard fi wul mi down better let me go

The streets is like quicksand, yuh keep on sinking
Yuh keep on going down and watch all yuh enemies linking

Dem a seh love and dem nuh show none
Dem rather see yuh slow down
Inna dem time yah it nuh matter weh yuh come from
Come let mi tell yuh mi nuh trust and mi nuh own none
I've seen so many things
I've seen pauper turn to king
I've seen bird try to fly away with broken wings

Inna the ghetto weh mi come from, inna the place weh mi grow
The Moment mi open mi eyes, people mi know
A nuff a dem nuh really waan see yuh mek it inna life a that mi know
A nuff a dem try hard fi wul mi down and haffi let me go
