(Intro)
Yeah, ohh yeah, this one goes out, to all the families
that went
through the struggle, yeah, from the heart,
it was from the heart, everything was real
(verse 1)
yo, dwelling in the past, flash back when I was young
who ever thought that I would have a beby girl and 3
sons
I'm going through this difficult stage I find it hard
to believe why my old earth had so many seeds
but she's an old woman and do to me I respect that
I saw life for what its really worth and took a step
back
family ain't family no more, we used to play ball
eggs after school, eat gritz cause we were poop
grab the plirs for the channel, fix the hanger on the
T.V.
rockin each others pants to school wasn't easy
we survived winters snauty nose with no coats
we kept it real but the older brother still had a joke
sadly daddy left me at the age of six
I didn't know notin' but mommy neatly packed his shit
she cried, and grandma held the family down
I guess mommy wasn't strong enough, she just went
straight down
check it, 15 of us in a three bedroom apartment
roaches everywhere causons and aunts were there.
4 in the bed, 2 at the foot, I didn't like to sleep with jon-jon he peed the bed
pluckin roaches out the cereal box
we shared the epoon, watchin saturday cartoons
sugar water was our thing, everymeal was no thrill
in the summer one lunch held us down like steel
and there was days I had to go to shea's house with a
note
"shea and gloria can I borrow some food I'm dead broke"
so embarrasin I couldn't stand to knock on the door
my friends might be laughin, I spent stamps in stores
mommy wheres the toilet paper, use the newspaper
look ms. Rose bought us a coach, shes the neighbor
2 brothers who must led this defeat kiiled me
but I remember this mom's would lick her finger tips
to wipe the cold out of my eye before school wit her
spit
case worker had her runnin back for face to face
I caught a case worker, trying to throw us out our
place.
sometimes I'm lookin back and analyze the sky,goodnight
sometime I'm lookin back and analyze the sky
let myself rock wasn't meant to be so hard
(mary j)
All that I got is you
chorus And I'm so thankful I made it through (3x)

I can't think, about all the times we did without rain
I always said I woudn't cry, when I saw tears in your
eyes
I understand that daddies not here know,
but some way some how, I will always be around
All things that I did from yesterday
oh from drunk to being there
being down and out and I love you always.
