[Intro: Lupe Fiasco]
Now what if I told you my city was the best
And my city was a threat to the rest
And my city was a threat to the rest

[Hook: Patrick Stump]
This city is my city
And I love it, yeah I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way, I'm gonna stay

[Verse 1: Patrick Stump]
From every corner
To every block yeah
Whether it's warm or storming or downright stupid hot, hot
From the problems all the way to the solutions yeah
Forget all the drugs and gangs, corruption and pollution no

[Hook: Patrick Stump]
Cause this city is my city
And I love it, yeah I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way, I'm gonna stay here
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah

[Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
Now what if I told you my city was the best
And my city was a threat to the rest
But you can't rest inside my city
My city's so cold if you ain't dressed
And what they accept, I had the right address
Parts of my city, certain colors can't step
And sadly I'm talking about the color of your skin
Sorry my brother can't let you in
Cause the property value might go down to a level that's
Economically unacceptable and socially taboo for us to live around you
Uh, uh, is this what it's down to?
Root for the same team, we have the same dream
Not the same reality,
Actually, mines is a bad education and gentrification
Despite all the above I love...

[Hook: Patrick Stump]
This city is my city
And I love it, yeah I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way, I'm gonna stay here
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah

[Bridge: Patrick Stump]
And you can take my picture
You can take my name
But you're never gonna take my city away
Cause you can burn it to the ground
Oh oh let it flood, but it's in my blood

[Hook: Patrick Stump]
Cause this city is my city
And I love it, yeah I love it
I was born and raised here
I got it made here
And if I have my way, I'm gonna stay here
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life, ah ah
For life...
