When we were young,
Life was so unjust,
At times I felt it was just us,
Mama working hard to put food on the table.
All on her own she sacrificed,
Even when my sisters and brothers died,
Some how she stayed strong,
I never saw her cry.
I was the oldest and responsibility was so immense,
So I left, at the time I felt she hated me.
Told me to be strong,
Told me to hang on,
Hugged Me tight,
And said "Big Sister It'll be alright"...
Brother, I love ya,
I thank God for ya every day,
I Love Ya,
And I pray he'll never take you away.
When my soul withered and I lived in the dark,
An emptiness it filled my heart.
U Never stopped holdin' me,
Never stopped tryin' to open me up.
The days and nights I spent stressin',
The years I spent In depression,
This is my confession.
Thought about ending it sometimes,
But the second you crossed my mind,
I knew, I could never leave you.
Made me believe,
You set me free,
To this day, all I say and do, I owe it all to you.
I would lie for you,
Cry for you,
Ride or die for you,
Touch the sky for you,
If you asked me to
There's nothin I wont do
I took this life for joke
I would drink or smoke
To ease away the pain
And forget the memories up in my brain
But you helped me to stop the rain
Oh brother brother...
