hardened lyrics – vi finesse

[intro]
pardon my sins, i hardened my skin
the world is so cold, my patience is thin
the world is so lost, i’m finding within
the power to love, i’m down for my kin
pardon my sins, i hardened my skin
the world is so cold, my patience is thin
the world is so lost, i’m finding within
the power to love, i’m down for my kin

[verse 1]
i done felt a lot of pain, living in the news
i done seen a lot of things, now i’m singing blues
i done walked a lot of miles, i ain’t switching shoes
i done kept a lot of secrets, just to feed my muse
i just lost a lot of blood just to see the views
i hardened up my skin, soul is bleeding through
momma told me i was strong, i will see it through
hope i reach heaven, when i’m there, i’ll be seeing you

[verse 2]
(i’ll be seeing you, i’ll be seeing you
the world is kinda blue
people only hate, but that’s nothing new
love like yours is unique as its true, unique as its true
pain in the place i had reserved for you
reserved for you, i’ll be seeing you)

[hook]
pardon my sins, i hardened my skin
the world is so cold, my patience is thin
the world is so lost, i’m finding within
the power to love, i’m down for my kin
pardon my sins, i hardened my skin
the world is so cold, my patience is thin
the world is so lost, i’m finding within
the power to love, i’m down for my kin

[verse 3]
people looking like white and colored never mix
we had it all, swore i fell in love with all of it
i was wrong, neighbors hate me, hardened up my skin
i’m a criminal to them, pigment mattered once again
should have known better, things never change
riding back from suffolk, darkness in the lanes
should have listened to my gut, onto bigger things
tears swelling up, even when i p-ss that interchange
can’t change the color, but the skin is growing thicker
the noose will threaten you, swear i never pulled a trigger
dying daily in my soul, police will do it quicker
hope i keep my culture, love thy brother and thy sister
and if you see somebody fall, lift them in your scripture
and if you see somebody faint, grab that water pitcher
pour a gl-ss for the times where i said i missed her
pour another for the day that people never victims

[hook]
pardon my sins, i hardened my skin
the world is so cold, my patience is thin
the world is so lost, i’m finding within
the power to love, i’m down for my kin
pardon my sins, i hardened my skin
the world is so cold, my patience is thin
the world is so lost, i’m finding within
the power to love, i’m down for my kin

[outro]
(mind on the money, children staying safe
education free, three meals a day
blessings i could save, thanks for the grace
watching from the place, giving him the praise
ain’t no telling all the time that we were taking
ain’t no telling all your plans, so i’ll be patient)
