Homecoming Lyrics
Jump to:
(feat. Chris Martin of Coldplay)

[Intro - Kanye West]
Yeah.
And you say Chi city,
Chi city, Chi city

[Chorus - Chris Martin]
I'm coming home again.
Do you think about me now and then?
Do you think about me now and then?
Cause I'm coming home again
Coming home again.

[Verse 1 - Kanye West]
I met this girl when I was three years old
And what I loved most she had so much soul
She said, excuse me little homie, I know you don't know me- but,
My name is Wendy and, I like to blow trees and,
From that point I never blow her off,
Niggas come from outta town I like to show her off,
They like to act tough, she like to tell em off,
And make em straighten up they hat, cause she know they soft
And when I grew up she showed me how to go downtown
And at nighttime my face lit up so astounding
And I told her in my heart is where she always be
She never mess with entertainers cause they always leave
She said it felt like they walked and drove on me
Knew I was gang affiliated got on TV and told on me
I guess it's why last winter she got so cold on me
She said, Ye keep making that, keep making that platinum and gold for me

[Chorus - Chris Martin]
Do you think about me now and then?
Do you think about me now and then?
Cause I'm coming home again
Coming home again
Do you think about me now and then?
Do you think about me now and then?
Oh, now I'm coming home again

Maybe we can start again


[Verse 2 - Kanye West]
But if you really care for her, then you wouldn't n-never hit the airport,
To follow your dream, sometimes I still talk to her, but when I talk to her
It always seems like she talking 'bout me,
She said you left your kids and they just like you
They wanna rap and make soul beats just like you,
But they just not you and I just got through
Talking bout what niggas trying to do, just not new
Now everybody got the game figured out all wrong
I guess you never know what you got till its gone
I guess this is why I'm here and I cant come back home
And guess when I heard that when I was back home
Every interview I'm representing you making you proud
Reach for the stars so if you fall you land on a cloud
Jump in the crowd, spark your lighters, wave em around,
And if you don't know by now, I'm talking about Chi Town,

[Chorus - Chris Martin]
Do you think about me now and then?
Do you think about me now and then?
Cause I'm coming home again
Coming home again
Maybe, do you remember when fireworks at lake Michigan
Oh, now I'm coming home again
Coming home again
Maybe, do you remember when fireworks at lake Michigan
Oh, now I'm coming home again
Maybe we can start again

Loyee oyeee oh, loyee oyeee oh
Coming home again

Loyee oyeee oh, loyee oyeee oh
Coming home again

Maybe we can start again
