My son was born this week.
over 10 years ago. When we got home
from the hospital then it dawned on me...
This baby knew how to smile already,
and it was more than sweet,
smiling like everything is alright,
or at least gonna be.
From that moment on,
I felt all my talents start to increase.
Bein' daddy made me a better man,
this is sort of deep.
My daughter born a few weeks
after now, little more than 3.
Her birthday falls on the week
of Father's Day, that's more than deep.
They say go on release
a new album, that's
what they want from me.
Remind me that my verses is priceless,
even though talk is cheap.
Though they know what it's like to
have a home with the fruits of labor,
the labor that's sustaining the home is
what they don't often see.
To be the perfect parent I wanna be,
follow my dreams, but hard to dream,
when you a parent, cause
you don't often sleep.
Ironically I wanna release
the music they want from me,
but gotta work for all they need
and take for granted awkwardly.
Drive 'em to school, pay bills,
get 'em gifts, buyin 'em food,
But love my wife cause she still
support da dream, fortunately.
This year on top of all the work she do,
my wife is drivin' my daughter to reach
school, so I got more time to tour and speak.
Plus my younger brother from another
mother just quit his day job, so we could
support eachother on tour for weeks.
On FATHER'S DAY I'm givin'
the vision my children WANNA SEE,
their father out of debt,
affordin' to be who I'm BORN TO BE!
