      About "Testify"

      Lyrics for Common - "Testify"

      She walk into the court her knees buckle
      Saying for a man to survive he need hustle
      Seen and been through struggle her whole life
      Made a transition from being his ho to his wife
      Stifling, the night upend the ATF bust in
      Her daddy was a hustler so she love them
      Looked at the jury how can they judge him, she screamed

      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Please let me testify

      Fear in her chest her face in tears, had her mans back he was facing years
      In her name though the place was his
      They trying to take everything except the kids
      But years she been through scuffles and fights
      While he trying to hustle that white
      Up all night wondering if he's alive
      Seeing him tried she bubbled inside and screamed

      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Please let me testify

      The judge yelled for order court reporter makin' her words shorter
      His lawyer sat next to him, she could see how the trial was affecting him
      It hurt for her eyes to connect with him, using her lies for protecting him
      They arrested him for murder, and gun possession
      As they read back her confession she screamed

      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Please let me testify

      The court awaited as the foreman got the verdict from the bailiff
      Emotional outbursts tears and smeared makeup
      He stated, he was guilty on all charges
      She's shaking looking like she took it the hardest
      A spin artist, she brought her face up laughing
      That's when the prosecutor realized what happened
      All that speaking her mind testifying and crying
      When this bitch did the crime
      The queenpin

      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Before you lock my love away, before you lock my love away
      Please let me testify

      You accuse me of a, you accuse me of a, you accuse
      Please let me testify, you accuse me of a
