  • Don't make it grow too fast
    I'm here, I want to last
    Don't let it slip away
    I want my song to stay

    And I
    So many years I’ve tried
    And held my head up high
    And only now I feel I’ve found
    Some things come back around
    Making my daddy proud


    I did it by the book
    Envisioned every hook
    What would you call success?
    What would you call the rest... at best?

    And I
    So many years I’ve tried
    And held my head up high
    And only now I feel I’ve found
    Some things come back around
    Making my mama proud


    My babies rest assured
    They love their daddy’s food
    When mama’s not around
    She's following her sound

    And I
    So many years I’ve tried
    And held my head up high
    And only now I feel I’ve found
    Some things come back around
    Making my granny proud
