Dan-e-o and Promise go back and forth on this soulful joint detailing the lack of love that sometimes exists within the various relationships we have - be they with your girl, your boys or your father figures.
Baby I apologize, I realize I've only traumatized
You further with the way that things have gone with guys
Saying you not surprised got me feeling small inside
Claiming I falsified every text and call with lies
Wishing that we could put this all aside
This woulda never happened if your man was strictly alcohol deprived
That's no excuse but if I law abide
Can I be the guy that down the aisle you walk beside?
The guy you see in your dreams after you sing your lullaby
The guy that you pray that you see when God arrives
It'll all be fine with time like bottled wine
If you take a shot with the kid - Columbine
I'mma call you mine, speak it into being
You got your mama's eyes and other features we can see
How did I believe we could be without each other?
Other people see I pray that you speak to me
One more time, we can love
We can love again...
You were supposed to be my dog, but you a raccoon
A crook, a tief, a trouble making masked goon
Hiding from a life you decipher as sad gloom
How many times I gotta find you passed out in the bathroom?
Of course your life sucks, you stuck in a vacuum
Cut off from a world where you could mad bloom
Over a decade and you still ain't dropped a rap tune
It doesn't have to be this way, call me, I hope to give you dap soon
That was a bad move, I thought you were clever
I shoulda came at you when you started saying you were better
Guess you a rat, you would do anything cool for cheddar
People think that I got something to prove whatever
I got no time to play boy - Hugh Hefner
So stop with your game boy, I'm a new Nintendo
Not a new contender, but a dude you can trust
And what I'd rather do is mend us
Dad, you know the bad that you do, don't cha?
To put up with your stubbornness, it breeds a true soldier
For a war your family's fighting we liken to cruel torture
Getting us more heated than kettles of brewed Folgers
It's sick my grandmother gets the cold and flu shoulder
Come on dude, notice the pain in her face when she peruse photos?
Capturing moments when love was popping like cool soda
How would you like it if I act this way when you older?
Sorry I never knew you for me to get approval
We just fell in love, it was never voodoo
Got all of the crap out my life with Metamucil
Now my focus in life is to be a better pupil
So whatever you do, love me okay dad?
I'mma take her out the hood like an old brake pad
Life is full of love, ain't no reason to stay mad or stay sad
I want what they have – Love.
