      About "Be"

      Lyrics for Common - "Be"

      I wanna be as free as the spirits of those who left
      I'm talkin' Malcolm, Coltrane, my man Yusef
      Through death grew conception, new breath and resurrection
      For moms, new steps in her direction, in the right way
      Told inside is where the fight lay
      And everything a nigga do may not be what he might say
      Chicago nights stay, stay on the mind
      But I write many lives and lay on these lines
      Wave the signs of the times
      Many say the grind's on the mind
      Shorties blunted-eyed and everyone wonderin' where I'm
      Bush pushing lies, killers immortalized
      We got arms but won't reach for the skies
      Waiting for the Lord to rise
      I look into my daughter's eyes
      And realize I'ma learn through her
      The Messiah, might even return through her
      If I'ma do it, I gotta change the world through her
      Furs and a Benz, Gramps wantin 'em
      Demons and old friends, Pops they hauntin' him
      The chosen one from the land of the frozen sun
      When drunk nights get remembered more than sober ones
      Walk like warriors, we were never told to run
      Explored the world to return to where my soul begun
      Never looking back or too far in front of me
      The present is a gift, and I just wanna be
