  • No other name for you
    Even though they call you by another
    You were always my G
    And you light up the room
    Ever since the first day you were here
    You were always my G
    And if the world is cruel
    I will be the last one standing here to protect you
    Don't grow up too soon
    For now and till forever you were always my G

    Yeah
    Yo G
    Ha
    You probably won't even understand this
    So imma try and paint the picture on a canvas
    Just wanna tell you you won't ever get abandoned
    Can't lie I started writing and got anxious
    But you're my biggest blessing
    What a life that I've been granted
    One in a million couldn't try it if we planned it
    Don't mind me just fly free you're my G

    It ain't easy this a different type of love
    Every time we greet you get a different kind of hug
    All the memories that we keep
    You and me could write a book
    And we're still not done
    You're my G till time is up
    Out in public you walk past them they might look
    Keep smiling baby girl and watch the day gone brighten up
    Know I'm still with ya
    I'd kill for ya
    If someone tried their luck
    Can't even sip my drink
    I'm spilling tears inside my cup

    Knew you were special from the minute you was born
    Un-identical twin but so different from them all
    So happy when I met you and your sister on the ward
    You know big bros here to come and lift you if you fall
    I know Hat will take of you when I'm gone
    That's my angel she'll be stable until I'm one
    I wish Tony seen you grow but shit we ride on
    Looking back at old pictures where's the time gone

    No other name for you
    Even though they call you by another
    You were always my G
    And you light up the room
    Ever since the first day you were here
    You were always my G
    And if the world is cruel
    I will be the last one standing here to protect you
    Don't grow up too soon
    For now and till forever you were always my G

    Yeah
    Heart broke when I found out there's a hole in yours
    Had me stressed out for weeks but I cope of course
    No way you would have left us
    You was three months old
    You got a long life ahead of you
    I know there's more
    To make you happy is what I'm hoping for
    Can have anything you want
    I took an oath I swore
    Baby live your best life you shouldn't grow by force
    All in your own time G
    The globe is yours
    Yeah

    You got us wearing odd socks on the 21st
    People laugh but we're too strong for it to ever hurt
    They might try and bring you down but it'll never work
    When you smile you just light up the room
    I ain't never met a person that's brighter than you
    Say I love you and I mean it every time that I do
    You little shit you got me crying in the booth
    Tryna do mum proud
    Tryna do dad proud
    Tryna do you proud
    Tryna do Hat proud
    That's why I'm trying 5 years I ain't sat down
    And all I've heard is your voice in the background
    Don't say a word before you chat I just know it
    If I answer FaceTime you gonna ask me where Joe is
    Swear to God you're just amazing little girl
    From the bottom of my heart
    I wouldn't change you for the world
    Yeah

    No other name for you
    Even though they call you by another
    You were always my G
    And you light up the room
    Ever since the first day you were here
    You were always my G
    And if the world is cruel
    I will be the last one standing here to protect you
    Don't grow up too soon
    For now and till forever you were always my G

    No other name for you
    Ever since the first day you were here
    You were always my G
    And you light up the room
    Don't grow up too soon
    For now and till forever you were always my G
