Told her she take me back, I’ll be more supportive
I made mistakes, I bumped my head
Courts sucked me dry, I spent that bread

from Kanye West (Ft. Alicia Keys, Alvin Fields, Charlie Wilson, Drake, Elly Jackson, Elton John, Fergie, John Legend, Ken Lewis, Kid Cudi, Rihanna, Ryan Leslie, The-Dream & The World Famous Tony Williams) – All of the Lights Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

In our legal system, things are supposed to be all good once a criminal has paid their debt to society. However, this is not the case, as the emotional damage done can never be repaid/undone. Despite this, Kanye’s tries to convince his “girl” that his trials and tribulations have made him a better person.

Similarly, Kanye knows that he can return to the music world, but he will forever be associated with the mistakes he’s made in the public eye. This is one of the dangers of fame.

Also notice the pun of “back” and “supportive”.
