  • Here we go
    Yeah

    Yesterday morning was crazy
    I had to come to terms with the fact that it's not a maybe
    That shit is in stone, sealed and signed
    She not my lover like Billie Jean but the kid is mine
    Sandi used to tell me all it takes is one time
    And all it took was one time
    Shit, we only met two times, two times
    And both times were nothing like the new times
    Now it's rough times
    I'm out here on front lines
    Just trying to make sure that I see him sometimes
    It's breaking my spirit
    Single father, I hate when I hear it
    I used to challenge my parents on every album
    Now I'm embarrassed to tell them I ended up as a co-parent
    Always promised the family unit
    I wanted it to be different because I've been through it
    But this is the harsh truth now
    Fairy tales are saved for the bedtime stories I tell you now
    I don't want you worry about whose house you live at
    Or who loves you more, or who's not there
    Who did what to who 'fore you got here
    Now, look, I'm too proud to let that come between me and you now
    Realize I got to think for two now
    I gotta make it, I better make it
    I promise if I'm not dead then I'm dedicated
    This the first positive DNA we ever celebrated
    I can't forget the looks on they faces
    Got the news in Miami that we all now got ones that we raisin'
    Tell Gelo bring some, uh, Rosé and the Baccarats out
    For our cheers to the next generation
    But this champagne toast is short-lived
    I got an empty crib in my empty crib
    I only met you one time, introduced you to Saint Nick
    I think he must've brought you like twenty gifts
    Your mother say you growing so fast
    That they don't even really fit
    But man, you know, I still had to get it for my boy though, you know
    You haven't met your grandfather yet, that nigga a trip
    He probably coulda did stand-up
    Yeah, but at the same time he's a stand up
    And that's how you gon' be when it's time to man up
    October baby for irony sake, of course
    I got this 11 tatted for somebody, now it's yours
    And believe me, I can't wait to get a hunnid more
    Sorry I'm ventin', tryna cover ground
    They said that in two weeks you're supposed to come in town
    Hopefully by the time you hear this
    Me and your mother will have come around
    Instead of always cutting each other down

    God willing, I got a good feeling
    You got a good spirit
    We'll talk more when you hear this
    My G

    No one to guide me
    I'm all alone
    No one to cry on
    I need shelter from the rain
    To ease the pain
    I'm changing from boy to a man
    No one to guide me
    I'm all alone
    No one to cry on
    I need shelter from the rain
    To ease the pain
    I'm changing from boy to a man
    I'm all alone
    No one to cry on
    I need shelter from the rain
    To ease the pain
    I'm changing from boy to a man Writer/s: Aubrey Drake Graham, Charles Ray Wiggins, Tyler Williams, Joshua Valle, Michael Archer, Raphael Saadiq, Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman
