[Nas]
Uh, If I can teach somethin' so dear
And hope somebody learn somethin' from it
And give it back

[Nas]
They can't break me or shake me
They too fake to come kill me
 Think they faith this was satan 
They mistake me I'm filthy 
Rich off the ghetto madness, so now they want to dare me
It's gonna be a murder confront me, the burners are empty  Middle Passage I made it I'm from the land of David 
The Nazarene of Bethlehem they had me wrapped in blankets 
That bunch of backward gangsters
That sign of Alpha Davis
 Snitches with smile-like faces got you blowin' trial I hear this
Hopin' my child can see through this tryna be a good daddy 
I was there when she was born and she'll be there when I'm buried 
Kind o' waitin' is scary 
All my years have prepared me
What I fear is my temper, I subject to the center  Right through a man's soul
 Straight through his eyes, straight through his heart I'm still alive how did I make it this far
'Cause I been high I been low, searchin' for a way to go
 Every single night I pray
And Lord I'm on this battleground, lost just waitin' to be found 
I guess it's just a warrior's way 

[Chorus 1: Alicia Keys]
This is the song, for my warriors 
A warrior song Bravehearted and strong, definition of a warrior  Definition of a warrior  Gonna keep marchin' on, to the sound of her own beatin' drum 

[Nas]
Like King Nasir fightin' the
 British regime I can't cope my existence is hope for younger teens who lost in their world
 Earlier this year I buried my queen in a gold casket 
Your mother's the closest thing to
God that you ever have kid I'm askin, what would you do at your own mom's funeral 
Want to pick her up out of it, this can't be real
Tellin' my daughter grandma's gone, but
I can't keep still I can't go on, responsible for so many
Her last days at the hospital  Visits from family I'm tryin' not to bust shots at niggas 
Wishin' death on other nigga's mothers ain't right but why mommy 
She raised me in the projects alone
Her untimely exit from her, heavenly body
Got me ready to embody somethin' quickly 
Can't be happy, fuck a party she can't party with me
So your apologies are burnin' ya own souls 
To the kids with no parents at home, grab a whole 

[Chorus 2: Alicia Keys]
This is the song, for my warriors 
A warrior song
 Bravehearted and strong, definition of a warrior 
(Uh, warriors)
 Gonna keep marchin' on, to the sound of her own beatin' drum 

[Nas]
 Fight 'til the fight is over, for my peoples I die see
When you thought they were soldiers they turned out to be nobodies 
I think they out to get me, helpless was livin' sinful If you was me
All this pain I'm feelin would bend and killed you
(I'm a Warrior)
It only made me stronger 
But in my head it gets darker who wishin' evil on ya
 Sometimes I wish I was dead
But I took heed to the cause 
(I'm a Warrior, yeah)
'Cause I been high I been low, searchin' for a way to go
 Every single night I pray
And Lord I'm on this battleground, lost just waitin' to be found I guess it's just a warrior's way 

[Chorus 1: x3]

[Nas]
To my warriors 
To all these, baby Krucial 
Keys! Braveheart y'all
This to all my warriors, who breathe with the heart of a lion
To everybody that lost their mother, their father
Rest in peace moms!
My mother's last words:
 Never give up
A true warrior, who raised me in the hood, in a war
Love ya girl, why'kno keep marchin'
Yea yea yea, you never give up
To all my warriors, haha
Braveheart, Braveheart  Definition of a warrior
