TO MY PEOPLE: An Ode to Humanity | Empty Hands Music | nimo feat. famus & nick dalton


From the day that we were born
and mom hugged us with warmth And we grew ’cause we knew
we had all your support From the fams to the friends
Your love was medicine Kept givin’ us the strength
to rise when we would sin And the knowledge that we gained
through every single mistake But you never backed down
Through this you taught me faith Every single one of you
through being you you do Find a way to spread love through truth
through me and you And it’s because of you I grew
Because of you I flew Because of you I made it through
without residue Because of you
