    Lyrics

    [Nas]
    Uh, If I can teach somethin' so be it
    And hope somebody learn somethin' from it (teacher!)
    And give it back

    They can't break me or shake me
    They too fake to come kill me
    Think they faith this was satan
    They mistake me I'm filthy
    Rich off the ghetto madness, so now they wanna dare me
    It's gonna be a murder confront me, the burners are empty
    Middle Passage I made it
    I'm from the land of David
    The Nazarene of Bethlehem they had me wrapped in blankets
    That bunch of backward gangsters
    That sign of Alpha Davis
    Snitches with smile-like faces got you blowin' trial I hear this
    Hopin' my child can see through this tryna be a good daddy
    I was there when she was born and she'll be there when I'm buried
    Kind o' waitin' is scary
    All my years have prepared me
    What I fear is my temper, I see clear to the center
    Right through a man's soul
    Straight through his eyes, straight to his heart
    I'm still alive how did I make it this far
    'Cause I been high I been low, searchin' for a way to go
    Every single night I pray
    And Lord I'm on this battleground, lost just waitin' to be found
    I guess it's just a warrior's way

    [Chorus: Alicia Keys]
    This is the song, of my warriors, A warrior song, my lord
    Bravehearted and strong, definition of a warrior (Definition of a warrior)
    Gonna keep marchin' on, to the sound of our own beatin' drum

    [Nas]
    Like King Nasir fightin' the British regime
    I can't cope my existence is hope for younger teens who lost and they broke
    Earlier this year I buried my queen in a gold casket
    Your mother's the closest thing to God that you ever have kid
    I'm askin, what would you do at your own mom's funeral
    Wanna pick her up out of it, this can't be real
    Tellin' my daughter grandma's gone, but I can't keep still
    I can't go on, responsible for so many
    Her last days at the hospital
    Visits from family I'm tryin' not to bust shots at niggas
    Wishin' death on other nigga's mothers ain't right but why mommy
    She raised me in the projects alone
    Her untimely exit from her, heavenly body
    Got me ready to embody somethin' quickly
    Can't be happy, fuck a party she can't party with me
    So your apologies are burnin' ya own souls
    To the kids with no parents at home, grab a hold
    [Chorus: Alicia Keys]
    This is the song, of my warriors ,A warrior song, my lord
    Bravehearted and strong, definition of a warrior (Uh, warriors)
    Gonna keep marchin' on, to the sound of our own beatin' drum

    [Nas]
    Fight 'til the fight is over, for my peoples I die see
    When you thought they were soldiers they turned out to be nobodies
    I think they out to get me, helpless was livin' sinful
    If you was me all this pain I'm feelin would bend and killed you (I'm a
    Warrior)
    It only made me stronger
    But in my head it gets darker who wishin' evil on ya
    Sometimes I wish I was dead
    But I took heed to the cause (I'm a Warrior, yeah)
    'Cause I been high I been low, searchin' for a way to go
    Every single night I pray
    And Lord I'm on this battleground, lost just waitin' to be found
    I guess it's just a warrior's way

    [Chorus Until End: Alicia Keys]
    This is the song, of my warriors ,A warrior song, my lord
    Bravehearted and strong, definition of a warrior (Definition of a warrior)
    Gonna keep marchin' on, to the sound of our own beatin' drum

    [Nas]
    To my warriors
    To all these, baby
    KrucialKeys! Braveheart y'all
    definition of a warrior ( with alicia )
    This to all my warriors, who breathe with the heart of a lion
    To everybody that lost their mother, their father
    Rest in peace moms!
    My mother's last words: Never give up
    A true warrior, who raised me in the hood, in a war
    Love ya girl, y'kno keep marchin'
    Yea yea yea, you never give up
    To all my warriors ha ha
    Braveheart, Braveheart
    Definition of a warrior
