Mom I Understand
Doin everything you said that I shouldn't Lying to you when I said that I wouldn't Waste yo time and yo energy Becoming your enemy, callin you out your name I don't know what got into me but still you stay In my corner and regardless what you said to me Right or wrong you just wanted whats best for me so you demand Most of all you deserve my respect My apology I hope you accept Hey mom I understand The most regretful that I've ever felt I swear life is really somethin else Tryna be somethin you proud of but note to self You really can't be shit without ya health Hey mom I understand All you want for me is to be a man My whole life you been makin plans But all I've really done it seems is shut'm down And now you got some mixed emotions when I'm not around Again I understand I know I did it how i did it can't forget it And I'm sorry but you gave me life and I'm just tryna live it And you and God been by my side I'm blessed from the beginning And I swear that I'm not tryna hurt you when I'm out here sinnin I just dream of winnin but I'm losing tryna figure it out Since I was 12 you wanted me out the house The older that I get the more shit The more you push then I resent but this is my attempt I'm tryna make it right I should be dead or in jail Crashed 3 cars being SeDale All the money we don spent is fuccin crazy Liquor got me hazy and I'm sorry I believed I could fly D, U and the I Cant believe I made it through it And its stupid cuz it took a friend to get me not to do it But God was lookin out again and here I am Besides some moving violations I 'm still in his hands Hey mom I understand What I'm doin isnt what you want pursued And how you feel and your emotions too'm I know I seem clueless But I been given talent I believe in tryna use it But too immature and stupid not to see what I'd be losing Your respect Out here tryna get a check Breakin yo pockets while you break yo neck Tryna get your son prepared for the shit we've arrived too Sometimes I swear I wish I could die too Remember I was little and I used to hit myself when I was mad Throwing violent temper tantrums and I know that made you sad Now I'm grown and all I do is make you livid And I know it's gon take a while for me to be forgivin, like a lifetime Prioritize and put you before myself Like you did for me and put a couple things on the shelf But I'll keep'm dusted off I swear I got plan And you just wanna see a better man Hey mom I understand
