"Lil' Lil'"

(Come closer my friends and everyone listen 
I brought news from my homeland 
I'll tell you how we live and what goes on 
From my beloved homeland)

Every place got a ghetto this is my version 
Check it out... 
Listen closely yo, I got a story to tell 
A version of my ghetto where life felt for real 
Some would call it hell but to me it was heaven 
God gave me the grace, amazin' ways of living 
How would you feel if you had to catch your meal? 
Build a hut to live and to eat and chill in. 
Having to pump the water outta the ground 
The way we put it down utilizing what is around 
Like land for farming, river for fishing 
Everyone helpin' each other whenever they can 
We makin' it happen, from nothin' to somethin' 
That's how we be survivin' back in my homeland

Yo, its been a while but... 
I been back home to my homeland, (check it out) to see what's going on 
Man it feels good to be back at home 
And it's been a decade, on the journey all alone 
I was fourteen when I first left Philippines 
I've been away half my life, but it felt like a day 
To be next to my mom with her home cooked meal 
Meant I felt complete, my emotions I feel! 
Now life has changed for me in the U.S 
But back at home man, life was a mess... 
I guess sometimes life's stresses gets you down 
On your knees, oh brother I wish I could have helped you out...
