Been Away

This song is by Jermaine Dupri.

Q "The Kid" ft. Jermaine Dupri
"Been Away"

its been a long time comin, im here now
nobody can stop that

verse 1 (JD)
i done traveled long distances
im the meaning of what persistence is
and music is the only thing ive really loved since i was a kid
and its the only thing im gonna love forever
ive been through the hard times and bad weathers
long days and long nights, tryin to get my career together
but school was my first goal, bump these brauds
i was blessed with a talent that could get me real far in time
and trust me im nice with mine
and im sick with an instrument listen to the drumline
and all i got is more fire to come
a lotta cats is nice, but im liver than them
and these ATL streets, is what im tryin to rise up from
by any means just to get that cream
it was hard but i did it graduated to the big screen
now im on tour and the kid got bigger dreams

you cant help me ive been away to long
im just tryin to chase my dreams
did i leave your mind when i was gone
i hope not, cuz im still here
you cant help me ive been away to long
im just tryin to chase my dreams
did i leave your mind when i was gone
i hope not

verse 2 (Q "the Kid")
now im in a new state new division
new sound new shit im on a new mission a good life livin
things done changed, new deal new aim
2 new four fifths, benz and a range
ive came a long way from sittin on a block
from bustin shots in broad days to number one slots
but look ima grind through it
and i can make anything happen as long as i put my mind to it
i love music kid im real nice with them sticks
no class no tutors i was born with this gift
and its only a few, one or two i can name
and cuz im hot, dudes wanna X me out the game
but ima keep strivin
and hustle all the way from the bottom to the top and surprise em
and show niggaz it dont hurt to try
stay focused and you bound to get by


Verse 3 (Q "the Kid" and JD)
ive came a long way and look i done made it
and nothin you do or say can stop me cuz this is what im here for
and hot beats is all i got an ear for you could never nop me
what im sheddin tears for
look, it was rough but i made it at last
top dog major the head of my class
now its JD who they wanna get along with
its Q who they wanna do a song with

chorus to fade
