Come To Life
Kanye West Lyrics


(My soul cries out, "Hallelujah" and I thank God for saving me)
(I, I thank God for-)

Here go all your problems again (I thank God)
Three, two, one, you're pinned (I thank God)
Uncle, now he back in the pen' (He's done for me, hallelujah)
Auntie shut down again (hallelujah)
Did she finally come to life? (Thank you, Jesus)
Ever wish you had another life?
Ever wish you had another life?
Ever wish you had another life?

Don't you wish the night would go long?
I've been feelin' low for so long
I ain't had a high in so long
I been in the dark for so long
Night is always darkest 'fore the dawn
Gotta make my mark 'fore I'm gone
I don't wanna die alone
I don't wanna die alone
I get mad when she gone
Mad when she home
Sad when she gone
Mad when she home
Sad when she gone (lose it right now, go, spirit that wants to run)
Floatin' on a silver lining (in the name of Jesus)
Yeah, you know where to find me, ridin' on a silver lining
And my God won't deny me, tell the Devil, "Get behind me"
All the stars are aligned, lift me up every time
You know exactly where to find me
(Hallelujah, thank you, Jesus, hallelujah, hallelujah)

Did those ideas ever really come to life?
Make it all come to life
Make it all come to life
Prayin' for a change in your life
Well, maybe it's gon' come tonight

Sadness settin' in again
Three, two, one, you're pinned
Uncle, right back in the pen'
Tell me how auntie been
Took your thoughts and penciled 'em in
Should've wrote 'em down in pen
And maybe they'll come to life
And maybe they'll come to life

Sadness settin' in again
Three, two, one, you're pinned
Uncle, right back to the pen'
Tell me how auntie been
Thoughts, you had penciled 'em in
Probably should've wrote 'em in pen
And maybe they'll come to life
They could finally come to life
They could finally come to life

You know where to find me, they cannot define me
So they crucify me, how so fazed when I leave?
Come and purify me, come and sanctify me
You the air that I breathe, the ultra-ultralight beam
Bought a gift to Northie, all she want was Nikes
This is not about me, God is still alive, so I'm free
Floatin' on a silver lining, floatin' on a silver lining
So when I'm free, I'm free

Thank you Jesus

My soul cries out, "Hallelujah"
And I thank God for saving me
I, I thank God

Here go all your problems again (I thank God)
Three, two, one, you're pinned (I thank God)
Uncle, now he back in the pen'
Auntie shut down again
Did she finally come to life?
Ever wish you had another life?
Ever wish you had another life?
Ever wish you had another life?

Don't you wish the night would go numb?
I've been feeling low for so long
I ain't had a high in so long
I been in the dark for so long
Night is always darkest 'fore the dawn
Gotta make my mark 'fore I'm gone
I don't wanna die alone, I don't wanna die alone
I get mad when she gone
Mad when she home, sad when she gone
Mad when she home, sad when she gone
(Lose it right now, the spirit that wants to run)
Floating on a silver lining (in the name of Jesus)
Yeah, you know where to find me, riding on a silver lining
And my God won't deny me, tell the Devil, "Get behind me"
All the stars are aligned, lift me up every time
You know exactly where to find me
(Hallelujah, thank you Jesus, hallelujah, hallelujah)

Did those ideas ever really come to life?
Make it all come to life, make it all come to life
Praying for a change in your life
Well, maybe it's gon' come tonight

Sadness setting in again
Three, two, one, you're pinned
Uncle right back in the pen'
Tell me, how auntie been?
Took your thoughts and penciled 'em in
Should've wrote 'em down in pen
And maybe they'd come to life
And maybe they'd come to life

Sadness setting in again
Three, two, one, you're pinned
Uncle right back to the pen'
Tell me, how auntie been?
Thoughts, you had penciled 'em in
Probably should've wrote 'em in pen
And maybe they'd come to life
They could finally come to life
They could finally come to life

You know where to find me, they cannot define me
So they crucify me, how so fazed when I leave?
Come and purify me, come and sanctify me
You the air that I breathe, the ultra-ultralight beam
Bought a gift to Northie, all she want was Nikes
This is not about me, God is still alive, so I'm free
Floating on a silver lining, floating on a silver lining
So when I'm free, I'm free

I’m not writing this for anyone to read but I just gotta get it out for my own sake.

September 26th I had an attempt on my life, and this song was in the rotation on my unalive day playlist that I had made and I played it so heavily. Anyone with depression; anyone who has truly been to the depths and has considered or has tried to take their life will truly be hit by this song in a different way.


I had already been planning my death for some time when the third listening party came around; and watching this live and hearing it that first time brought me to tears and still does now.

It had embodied so many of these feelings that I had been feeling during those months planning on my life.


The feelings of defeat. I was pinned down by my own thoughts and the circumstances surrounding.

I had been feeling low for so long, I was in the dark for so long. And god, I didn’t wanna die alone. The sadness had set in for so long.


It embodied the acceptance I had reached.

I knew exactly where those who loved me could find me. I felt that once I took that step; I would finally be free.
It wasn’t about me either; it was to keep others from being burdened by my own struggle.


I endured abuse in the church so I’ve never been overly religious since then but in those months I turned to the religious texts to give me guidance and closure in what I was about to undertake.


I felt the presence of something greater than me comforting me in the plan I was about to undertake. When I was free; I was free. This all resonated with me so much.


Anyways; anyone who struggles with mental illness will feel very strongly about this song like I did.


It has become one of my top 3 Kanye songs of all time; even now that I have recovered it has not lost its impact to me at all.


Stay strong everyone. It will get better.


You do not have to go into that great night to finally be free. 🖤

“Did those ideas ever really come to life?” As some one who struggles with dream chasing and unfulfilled ambitions…that line hits so hard it moves me to tears every time. Thanks Ye. Still an inspiration to us.

Jonathan Lupus

May you fullfill your dreams

Bombo Gaming

Well said. I feel the same way too. This has easily become one of my favorite songs, and it actually makes me want to take action and make my ideas come to life

Joshwa

And then he says "make it all come to life" and you get this motivation to keep pushing.
