Common Say Courageous Lyrics

[Chorus: Paris Jones]
I’m all here in the flesh, you can take it or not
I’m not claiming, pretending to be what I’m not
I ain’t nobody’s angel, we in this world [?]
Who you are, just embrace it
Stay courageous

[Verse 1: Common]
Unapologetic, unashamed with it
Times in life I came with it
When the unseen became vivid
Of different flesh, same spirit
It’s like a lyric by Stevie Wonder
Through the inner visions, you can see the wonder
Spent time in life being in the run up
Couldn’t run from what I’ve seen this summer
Trying to understand where we are in time
Looking at the world, keeping God in mind
I know [?] peace it’s hard to find
I went out there found mine [?]
I’m alive on arrival, my life is more than survival
You can live and be live too
That’s how heaven will describe you

[Chorus: Paris Jones]
If you want something real
I’m all here in the flesh, you can take it or not
I’m not claiming, pretending to be what I’m not
I ain’t nobody’s angel [?]
Who you are, just embrace it
Stay courageous and be real

Yeah, I’m all here in the flesh, you can take it or not
I’m not claiming, pretending to be what I’m not
I ain’t nobody’s angel [?]
Who you are, just embrace it
Stay courageous

[Verse 2: Common]
Look life in the eye, I can see clearer
A kingdom’s coming, you can hear it near us
Stay close to the sincerest
Those, the ones that become mirrors
Speak no hate, let love hear us
Times [?] is when I was fearless
There’s a self I gotta take care of
So with the world, I can truly shell off
And be a bearer of fruit on the planet
God [?] I don’t take for granted
Time is manic we internalize
Honor that little boy, a little girl inside
Pray these words arise to the ears of angels
We let go of fears that we came through
Change is beautiful as it is painful
The world is yours, don’t let it change you
Don’t let it change you

[Chorus: Paris Jones]
I’m all here in the flesh, you can take it or not
I’m not claiming, pretending to be what I’m not
I ain’t nobody’s angel [?]
Who you are, just embrace it
Stay courageous and be real

Yeah, I’m all here in the flesh, you can take it or not
I’m not claiming, pretending to be what I’m not
I ain’t nobody’s angel [?]
Who you are, just embrace it
Stay courageous
