When you're riding through my city
And the people that you're meeting
Are the strangers that you've thought of before
Two seats farther down I hear another couple fighting
And a baby screaming close to the door
The lady at the corner works a shift to pay her dealer
And the busker sings a song I don't know
And the overheard exposure of the devils are just screaming
"You have everything but you still need more"

I'm gonna stay where I am
Not trying to be somewhere else
This is who I am
This is what I love
I've got love for my people
'Cause they're running my town
This is who I am
This is what I love

This is who I am

The boys down at the liquor store
They're drunk and then act crazy
Start a rumble, it's about to be on
The waitress hides a book before she comes to take your order
Working hard to pay the loan for her school
The money guy is paranoid
He's driving down the streets at night
He's just about to pick something up
Imma tell you "Best say humble
It's a rumble in the jungle
You can make it but watch out you don't fall"

I'm gonna stay where I am
Not trying to be somewhere else
This is who I am
This is what I love
I've got love for my people
'Cause they're running my town
This is who I am
This is what I love

I'm gonna stay where I am
Not trying to be somewhere else
This is who I am
This is what I love
I've got love for my people
'Cause they're running my town
This is who I am
This is what I love

This is who I am
This is what I love
This is who I am
This is what I love

This is who I am
This is what I love

I'm gonna stay where I am
Not trying to be somewhere else
This is who I am
This is what I love
I've got love for my people
'Cause they're running my town
This is who I am
This is what I love

I'm gonna stay where I am
Not trying to be somewhere else
This is who I am
This is what I love
I've got love for my people
'Cause they're running my town
This is who I am
This is what I love

This is who I am
