Umm pum-pum-pum
Pum-pum, pum-pum, pum-pum

Look behind myself
As I reflect on all the memories
The times they come and go
Lost everything from friends to Family
If I could turn back the hands
There would be some things I'd change about me
I know that my past is not what my future holds

Where I come from
Who could believe
All the pain and misery
Look in my eyes and you'll see
The diary of me

Rewind my life
Just go back and correct all the wrong
And ask God to direct my path
So that I can make it home
And if I could turn back the hands of time
There would be some things I would change about me
But I know that my past is not what my future holds
'Cause

Where I'm from
Who could believe
All the pain, misery
Look in my eyes and you will see
The diary of me

Years ago a child was born (a child was born) (ooh)
And raised without a man (without my father, and wonder why he's in these streets) (ooh)

My mother's gone (mothers gone, yet still found the strength to pray for me) (ooh)
But still reached out her hand
Just open the book (na-na-na-na-na-na)
Turn the pages of my life (na-na-na)
And you will read
A true story about one man's journey

Where I'm from (ah)
Who would believe, yeah
That all the hurt and pain and misery (ah)
Look in my eyes (ah)
You'll see the diary of me (pum-pum-pum-pum-pum)
Where I'm from (where I'm from, who could believe) (ah)
Who could believe (the hurt and pain and misery)
(Look in my eyes) in my eyes (and you will see) (ah)
(The makings of) the makings of
(My diary) my diary
(Where I'm from) look in my eyes (ah)
(Who could believe) you'll see
(The hurt and pain and misery)
(Look in my eyes) (ah)
(And you will see) yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
(The makings of my diary)
(Where I'm from) (ah)
