Buried In Detroit Songtext
von Mike Posner feat. Big Sean

Buried In Detroit Songtext

I'm a writer and a lover.
I'm a Mid-West music man.
And I've been to a lot of places,
But I'm gonna end where I began.
I took class in Carolina.
Got high smoking joints.
And now they know my name in Paris.
But I'll be buried in Detroit.
Next to my father...
And my father's father too.
I used to live in New York city,
But baby, that ain't no substitute.
Not for my hometown.
That place people avoid.
I've made love in every city,
But I'll be buried in Detroit.
I don't claim to be a prophet.
I just speak my mind.
I try to tell it like it is,
And sometimes God makes it rhyme.


I like my songs how I like my women.
Honest and to the point.
You see, I got fucked up in Stockholm,
But I'll be buried in Detriot.
Next to my father...
And my father's father too.
I used to live in New York city,
But baby that ain't no substitute.
Not for my hometown.
That place people avoid.
I've made love in every city,
But I'll be buried in Detroit.
Man, I always kept it righteous.
Knowing it would come back to me.
Even when my hunger was outweighing a strategy.
And now I pray to God,
Like I hope you got a map for me.
Up at 5. AM, like nobody want it as bad as me.
I guess hunger either kill you,
Or it enegize you.
Motor city boy, I been a driver.
The young Detriot legend,
I swear I got the city inspired.
And bought "Em" out too,
Just to solidify it.
D-boy, D-boy.
That's how I was raised.
Boss up and put the city on forever my ways.
Me and 'ma started a charity,
To give the kids clearity.
And take it further than the foundation we laid.
Thanksgiving day parade.
I got carried thru the city.
And after that, I hope I get married in the city.
And after that, I hope I get buried in the city.
Even when I'm gone,
You gon' still hear me through the city.
