Pretty Brown Girl (Come Home) ft. M.Symone

Written by Da’Lux Blaze, Vocals by M. Symone, Produced by DJ Dynasty for Chinaman Productions, Recorded & Mixed by DJ D.Scott

Verse 1:

Pretty brown girl with them pretty brown eyes
Lookin’ out the window at the city outside
Watchin’ all the people as they’re living out lives
You’re trapped in this house, stuck livin out a lie

Ribbon in your hair, no ribbon in the sky
You’re sittin in a chair, but you’re wishin you could fly
Fly from the pain, the cryin, the shame,
Suicide on your brain – you’re wishin you could die

No glisten in your eyes; they’re dry but there’s rain
That slides down the panes of the window symbolizing
The storm in your heart, the tempest in your mind
You feel torn apart, split on the inside

It isn’t just some guy – this is someone so close
He’s the very man [who’s] s’posed to love you the most
Used and confused with every touch, every grope
Till you’re used to abuse and you’re just tryna cope but…

Chorus:

I want you to know you’re beautiful
More beautiful than jewels or gold
So come and, come and get free
Come and, come and get free
Come and, come and get free
Come home

Though truth be told – you’re bruised and scarred
What happened then is not who you are
So come and, come and get free
Come and, come and get free
Come and, come and get free
Come…

Verse 2:

Pretty brown girl with them pretty brown eyes
Lookin’ out the window at the city outside
Watchin’ all the people as they’re living out lives
You’ve escaped from the house, now the prison’s in your mind

It’s been a little time, but the wounds are still there
People all around, but they’re truly unaware
Truly unprepared for the mess you got inside
That’s what you think – that it’s better just to hide

to treat it like a bad book – set it to the side
but the past feels like a monster that’s never gonna die
As fast as you run away, in the best of times,
like your shadow on a sunny day, it’s never left behind.

And I know you have doubts when you’re browsin in the mirror
But I see how there’s strength, there’s a power in your inner,
how you’re so sweet despite the sour and the bitter,
how God bloomed this lovely young flower in the winter so…

[chorus]

Verse 3:

Pretty brown girl with them pretty brown eyes
Lookin’ out the window at the city outside
Watchin’ all the people as they’re living out lives
This song is for you, and for many worldwide

More than some “victim,” or a body that’s been beat
More than a story, a statistic, or a number
Nah, you’re my girl, you’re my sister, you’re my mother,
And you’re the grown woman that I pass on the street

As I rap to this beat, know my heart bleeds for you
Not outta pity but because I see you in you
A God given worth that Guilt screens from view
But it wasn’t your fault – please believe me boo

It was evil, it’s true – all the harm that was done
But in the arms of the Son, Jesus there’s room
where you can find home; seek caring people too
and like a voicemail the message I leave with you is….

[Chorus]
