You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for)
You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for, you)

I remember feburary 27 1994
Tryin to make it to the hospital through 3 inches of snow
Somethings goin wrong i can tell but i don't know
I got this feelin in my gut this ain't how i supposed 2 go
3 pounds 2 ounces and 2 months premature
To the incubator is she gon make it they ain't sure
Automatically i placed the blame on my health
Hell I'm a father mayne, i placed the blame on myself
Was it somethin that i smoked, did i eat or did i drink it
Or was it somethin i was doin that i did or did i think it
Watchin her breathe through her holes in her nose
what's this ckg machine, wats this shit on her toes
This 94 I'm 85 so I'm spooked as can be
I'm prayin and I'm askin why he do this to me
See, i used to hold you in the palm of my hand
And jus to see you pull through, shit i knew you'd pull through

You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for)
You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for, you)

March the 2nd, 1999

The yurrr and the date i got my little mine
I guess i felt how my father felt and his father felt
And his father must have felt to see hiself
Its like a lil me in the flesh
He got my blood and my heart in his chest
Needless to say man i love him to death
Teach him if he disrespect me I'm'a love him to death
Left to go outa town right after he was born
Got a record deal 3 months later, daddy was gone
Its like I'm tryin to raise him over the phone
He barely kno my face when he see it but he know my tone
I'm up at night like do he know who his daddy is
I'm real close to sayin f*ck the showbiz
But when i hurr him call his daddy na
And when i hurr him tell his friends i want to be jus like my daddy na
Hope he forgive me for the sacrifice
So he can have a better life, than i had

You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for)
You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for)
You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for)
You, dontcha know i'd die for ya
I'd lay down my life for ya (i would, die for, you)
