Tell you a little story on this one baby
We going for a ride, uh
Yeah, yeah, haha, okay
I'm riding round town with my goons
And I don't know how I'm gonna tell 'em the news
That in a couple of months
I'll be moving far away
And when I come back things just won't be the same
It never is
And I don't know why
But once a chapter's written it can never be revised
My life is rich because it's so full of change
I'm sorry homie but I'm going my own way
Imma run this track cause I grew up in Kenya
Vivid memories glow inside of me like embers
That beautiful country influenced me more than anything
The people, the places, my friend I'm talking about everything
And every
Kenyan I've met has been nothing but kind
They raised me up and made me such a fiend for the grind
They taught me don't you copy Jackson just be yourself
Your inner riches outweigh anyone's material wealth
Mombasa to Naivasha to Nanyuki to Nakuru
Nairobi to Diani to Kisumu
I gotta be so grateful
In Kenya we were living for today never tripping bout tomorrow
But now I feel sorrow
That part of my life has long past
Since then I've grown weary and jaded
I need to go back
My feelings are painted all over the map
Why does growing up have to happen so fast
I'm riding round town with my goons
And I don't know how I'm gonna tell 'em the news
That in a couple of months
I'll be moving far away
And when I come back things just won't be the same
It never is
And I don't know why
But once a chapter's written it can never be revised
My life is rich because it's so full of change
I'm sorry homie but I'm going my own way
Imma take you back to 2012
The world didn't end but mine turned into hell
It was a sunny Saturday I was in seventh grade
I'd just gotten back from sleeping over at my mates
We were having a family lunch
When my parents told us
That in couple of months
We'd be
Moving away from Nairobi
I knew at that very moment the old me
Was dead and gone
It felt like someone hit me in the head
I ran up the stairs
Buried my face deep in my bed
I screamed and I cried
Until I had completely emptied everything inside
We boarded the flight
I looked out the window and waved my one true home goodbye
I thought to myself
If I were die right now
I'd be happy with way my life turned out
I was only fourteen years old but I had no doubt
I'm riding round town with my goons
And I don't know how I'm gonna tell 'em the news
That in a couple of months
I'll be moving far away
And when I come back things just won't be the same
It never is
And I don't know why
But once a chapter's written it can never be revised
My life is rich because it's so full of change
I'm sorry homie but I'm going my own way
Back then I didn't know I would benefit
All the changes in my life made me resilient
Kenya was the base of my pyramid
But I had to leave home to keep on building it
I had to let go so I could really get a grip
But I couldn't've held on if it wasn't for my friends
They showed me love
You know who you are
I thank god above
That I met you all
Damn
I don't think you really know how much you mean to me
I'd give you both my kidneys and my right arm if you need
We went through so much side by side you guys my ride or dies
Even if the memories fade over time
It's the feelings we had that will stay in my mind
I love you all
And Imma keep on loving you until the end of time
If you ever missing me my soul will forever reside in these lines
I'm riding round town with my goons
And I don't know how I'm gonna tell 'em the news
That in a couple of months
I'll be moving far away
And when I come back things just won't be the same
It never is
And I don't know why
But once a chapter's written it can never be revised
My life is rich because it's so full of change
I'm sorry homie but I'm going my own way
