lyrics

Chorus
Brother don't you let him take you
Cause you know that long vacation
you said you're on your kid he knows the truth
Brother don't you let him get you
Cause you know that even though
You and mom don't get along she's hurting too

Verse 1
For the past 14 years I've been waiting
Waiting upon this mans explanation
Why he couldn't fly
Why he couldn't divide the sky
And why he couldn't save me when I cry
Everything I did was to impress him
As if he had made the same investment
Even when he would come
He would mostly take the guys
But brother I still feel you when you cry

Chorus
Brother don't you let him take you
Cause you know that long vacation
you said you're on your kid he knows the truth
Brother don't you let him get you
Cause you know that even though
You and mom don't get along she's hurting too

Verse 2
Now here it is I'm a lay it on the table and I
Know that we have both been through our share
I won't pretend I've walked a day in your shoes
Just wanna hear the good news
Don't wanna see you lose
So I'll do what I got to help you
And when you call I'm just gonna tell you I love you
Keep your head up, Keep your head up
I know you tryna get your hustle on tryna shine
But baby how we miss you when you gone doin time
Cause we gone make it real big one day
Just hold on and have faith
Remember anticipating that drive-by
Only to be transferred to the eyed of your child
We gotta change the cycle it's our turn
And that's in the past let it burn

Chorus
Brother don't you let him take you
Cause you know that long vacation
you said you're on your kid he knows the truth
Brother don't you let him get you
Cause you know that even though
You and mom don't get along she's hurting too
