Last updated: 10/28/2012 07:33:45 AM

ACTUAL PROPER LYRICS:

Ayy
Let me kick it to you right quick partner
Now that some gangstas a grown man
What matters more then the mistakes youve made, is what you able to learn from it
Big Phil ..
This is for you pimpin'

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T.I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just trying to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just trying to find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone

Verse 1 - T.I.
Ever had one of dem days wish woulda stayed home
Run into a group of niggas who gettin' they hate on
You walk by
They get wrong
You reply then shit get blown
Way outta proportion
Way past discussion
Just you against them, pick one then rush 'em
Figure you get your hair that's next
They don't wanna stop there now they bussin'
Now you gushin', ambulance rushin'
You to the hospital with a bad concussion
Plus ya hit 4 times
Plus it hit ya spine
Paralyzed waist down now ya wheel chair bound
Nevermind that now you lucky to be alive
Just think it all started you fussin' with 3 guys
Now ya pride in the way, but ya pride is the way
You could fuck around, get shot, die anyday
Niggas die everyday
All over bull shit, dope money, dice game, ordinary hood shit
Could this be 'cos of hip hop music?
Or did the ones with the good sense not use it?
Usually niggas don't know what to do when their back against the wall so they just start shootin'
For red or for blue or for blo I guess
From Bankhead or from your projects
No more stress, now I'm straight, now I get it, now I take
Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead and gone away

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T.I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone, dead and gone

Verse 2 - T.I.
I aint never been scared, I lived through tragedy
Situation coulda been dead lookin' back at it
Most of that shit didn't even have to happen
But you don't think about it when you out there trappin'
In apartments, hangin', smokin', and rappin'
Niggas start shit, next thing ya know we cappin'
Get locked up then didn't even get mad
Now think about damn what a life I had
Most of that shit, look back, just laugh
Some shit still look back get sad
Maybe my homboy still be around
Had I not hit the nigga in the mouth that time
I won that fight
I lost that war
I can still see my nigga walkin' out that door
Who'da thought I'd never see Philant no more?
Got enough dead homies I don't want no more
Cost a nigga his job
Cost me more
I'da took that ass-whoopin now for sure
Now think before I risk my life
Take them chances to get my stripe
A nigga put his hands on me alright
Otherwise stand there talk shit all night
'Cos I hit you, you sue me,
I shoot you, get locked up, who me?
No more stress, now I'm straight, now I get it, now I take
Time to think, before I make mistakes just for my family's sake
That part of me left yesterday
The heart of me is strong today
No regrets I'm blessed to say
The old me dead and gone away

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T.I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home (back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone

Hook - Justin Timberlake
I turn my head to the East
I don't see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the West
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the North
Swallow that pill that they call pride
That old me is dead and gone
But that new me will be alright

I turn my head to the East
I don't see nobody by my side
I turn my head to the West
Still nobody in sight
So I turn my head to the North
Swallow that pill that they call pride
That old me is dead and gone
But that new me will be alright

Chorus - Justin Timberlake T.I.
Ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone
And ohhhh (eyyy)
I've been travellin' on this road too long (too long)
Just tryna find my way back home
(back home)
The old me is dead and gone, dead and gone, dead...

Prison gates closing sound ..

This isn't about black or wht. Its about loss. Im wht and I lost one of my best friends commin up. Much love and respect to TI... but don't tell me wht ppl should learn from this. thats racist... WE ALL should learn from this. Streets can be rough no matter what color you are and WE ALL need to clean this shit up.



wow | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/31/09

me and my best friend were riding to a party friday night and we had cds on mix this song came on and he said listen and think how much it sounds like me in ways i started crying because he grew up in the streets and i was best friends with his lil sis(shes my age) when she moved and and his grandpa got sick... me and him got really close he has been like my brother all my life and he always will be i ran with his boys and they all knew me by name and protected me like i was their own lil sis. but i always knew that the things that went on were dangerous and i worried about him i still jump in the middle of the night when the phone rings casue we have lost friends to the streets and my worst fear is that one night it wont be his voice on the other end telling me that something bad had happened that it will be jimmy or one of the others telling me to come quick he wasnt ok but he has grew away from that life with the birth of his son but once your part of the streets you never really completely leave it behind but this song makes me think about what life is really like and how much i love him



its hard | Reviewer: Suzannah | 6/4/09

i lost my brother to gang violence, i got left with his 'homies' it isn't all about guns and violence and who has the strongest gang. there is a hell of a lot more to it than that. they really is like family man, i had boys come to the funeral that were on "the other side" they have a hell of a lot of respect for each other, they don't want their boys, their brothers, to die, and all you white people can learn from this brotherhood, sisterhood, family shit. one goes down we all do, win together lose together we there for each other, now this song really shows how most of it is out here on the streets, sure we don't got much money or fancy shit but we get by, we look after each other, and i cry when i hear this song all the time because if there is one thing i regret is that maybe some how Jerome didn't have to die. and this song proves that. i dedicate this song to my brother every time i hear it and his 'family' agree with me. ya'll don't get it til you live it, and i live it and it sure as hell is hard. don't go thinking its just about racial discrimination, hell its all of us in this song. i'm sure all the 'real' gangsters out there feel this song too, i love this song and i love Jerome, i miss him everyday.maybe if he did give up he would have died anyway, but i know one thing for sure, and thats people all over the world have to realize we aint all that bad, i mean, we got feelings, we got emotions, we got pride, so what if we aint middle class men, we is all the same. Black, white, brown, yellow, pink.
Peace, out.

Touches the heart. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/23/09

This song is simply astonishing. It really touches the heart. This was the first song that I danced to, with a beautiful girl that I really liked. I just cant get listen to it enough.

This song truly describes our society. People are constantly putting their pride into situations and are willing to start a fight just to defend it. They dont learn from their mistakes because their pride is in the way. Watch the video and read the passage at the very beginning. People are constantly growing. And as we grow we should learn. As we learn, we should begin to think like adults, and put our childish ideals behind us.



one word. Wow. | Reviewer: Daniel. S | 4/23/09

this song is intense. I dunno bout the rest of you, but I'm Native, not quite white, and not black. and I believe this song Transcends race. Every young adult who has lived in the hood knows the true depths of this song. the intensity. the pain. and not to mention the feeling of being lost in one's own setting. both mind and body.

this song reaches through the speakers and causes a huge lump in your throat and an ache in the chest. for everyone who has lost someone in this way. or lost a loved one to the streets. whether Prostitution, Drugs, or homelessness... it crosses the gaps.

it's time for other rappers to follow T.I. and Grow up. the Thug life takes more away then it gives.



a song made of real feelings | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/21/09

Awesome song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/3/09

First of this is a great song. I can relate to it and I'm not black, i'm Mexican. I don't think T.I is trying to get through only black people, he's trying to get through everyone, black, white, Mexican, Asian, Hispanic, etc.

But ya this song is great. I guess I like T.I so much because he reminds me of my brother who is currently in prison. I recently wrote him and told him about this song and he says that this song has helped motivate him to change for the better.

Thanks for making this song T.I and even if your in prison, I support you and wish you well.

After really reading the words of this song i cried like a baby. Being a white middle-class man, i could only imagine what the real world of a young black man must be like. Please really read and listen to this song and think before you act. There is so much more to life than fighting and a life of crime. God Bless.........
