NO. 51 (THE GLORY PT. II )

 

Intro

(Melody harmonizing)

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, 

Baby it's been a long road

It's been a long road

Baby, you know it's been a long road

 

Chorus

It's not over yet, we've only just begun

Not much time is left, gotta to get to 51

Let's go, I know we'll have some fun

Ohhh deep in my heart you'll always be

When I need to run, far away from everyone

No. 51, shade is cooler in the sun

Let's go…..

Deep in your heart I'll always be

 

Verse 1

Goodnight...

Goodnight folks, fell asleep reading the Bible

When I'm dreaming, I can hear my mother singin' them high notes

I see a bunch of people in life boats

They wanna keep me under, but I'm tryna stay afloat

I'm back to the day I wrote my first battle rhyme

Broke the soul of that weepin' brother, they formin' a line so I said, "Hey

Keep em' comin." Even though, all I play is Stevie Wonder

I don't really know no hip- hop, I grew up on CeCe Winans

Yo, I aint' fit in for a while

They'd be partying, I would sit Indian style 

Watchin' all my friends, that was back then and it's wild

In the audience, they be like "Chris!" and I smile

You be thinking I changed, but you don't know the half

And even if you did, man that's only half

But, God gave me something I can only have

My own shade, I'm cool with a lonely path

 

Chorus

It's not over yet, we've only just begun

Not much time is left, gotta to get to 51

Let's go, I know we'll have some fun

Ohhh deep in my heart you'll always be

When I need to run, far away from everyone

No. 51, shade is cooler in the sun

Let's go…..

Deep in your heart I'll always be

 

Verse 2

I didn't know the kid would grow to love his difference

Was living for appearance or what people say

A miracle to really go through the transition

From indigo to loving on the deepest shade of me 

When I dropped School of Roses that was one side of me

I was just tryna show you, what you didn't wanna see

Now I'm waking up every morning, to play the hand I been dealt

'Cause I felt like you knew me, when I didn't know myself 

 

Chorus

It's not over yet, we've only just begun

Not much time is left, gotta to get to 51

Let's go, I know we'll have some fun

Ohhh deep in my heart you'll always be

When I need to run, far away from everyone

No. 51, shade is cooler in the sun

Let's go…..

Deep in your heart I'll always be
