[Chorus]
I've got some things to say, oh
 Please don't go, oh
So don't you turn away, oh
 Please don't go, oh
I need you here to stay, I
Miss you so

My daddy left me, and he ain't even die
So when he did go, I ain't even cry
I had reason, but that ain't even why
How could he have failed if he ain't even try
I ask no questions, I ain't even pry
 Truthfully I wanted to I can't even lie
Like a canceled flight, that ain't even fly
To just walk away, like you ain't even my
Like, like, like I ain't even your
I cant even say it, I ain't even sure
He shoulda gave me everything and left me even more
But he left me without saying what he was leavin' for
And that's when I became a man
And that's the day he stopped bein' one
This year I became a father 
And I'm a die bein' one, whats up son

[Chorus]

I have nightmares of me not bein' round 
He took his first steps and daddy couldn't be in town
Daddy's entertaining everybody
But missed out when it came to trainin' for the potty 
I give a fuck about hip-hops new beef
I was more excited when my son grew teeth 
So I same the problem 
Of the famous stardom
Just like Em and Haily 
Just like Game and Harlem 
Weezy's at the awards with Miss. Carter 
Nah not his date, i'm talkin' bout his daughter 
Now that's stuntin' like your daddy  Cause its crazy when you wanna be nothin' like your daddy 
And if you never been a man
That's the day you start bein' one
This year I became a father 
And I'm a die bein' one, whats up son

[Chorus]

So hear the truth remain to let me go
I wont hold that against you, I moved on
Just look what I become since you been gone
Now don't you turn away, oh, please don't go
Here's what I got to say, oh
 Please don't go
oh why'd you go away, oh
 Please don't go
I needed you here to stay, oh
 Please don't go
I cant believe this day, oh
 Please don't go

[Chorus]

Why did you leave me?
Tell me why you don't care
 Daddy tell me why did you leave me
Why you don't care?
Tell me why did you leave me
 Daddy tell me why you weren't there 
Why did you leave me?
