Plan B
Cast A Light
[Chorus: José González]
Don't you know that I'll be around to guide you
Through your weakest moments to leave them behind you?
Returning nightmares only shadows
We'll cast some light and you'll be alright
We'll cast some light and you'll be alright for now

[Verse 1: Plan B]
Wow! Look what I've done
Made my girl a mum and a brand new son
How you doing little fella? My names Dad
No need to cry now don't be sad
I'm gonna take good care of you
Starting today I swear to you
You're never gonna go without
Might not always get what you want
But anything you need you'll get no doubt
All you gotta do is shout and I'll be right there or thereabouts
'Cause I really care about you, and I don't ever want you
To go through what I went through when I was a little yout'
No father figure to look up to
Just one woman who provides the food
But can't afford to buy you shoes
Nah 'llow that boy, I'm here for life
And I want your one to be nice
So I'm gonna stick by your mum's side
And stay right there till the day that I die
I'll provide
Everything you need to succeed, ain't gotta worry 'bout a thing
'Cause your daddy raps and sings
And when he makes tracks it brings
Money and expensive things to the table
Cause he's big and he's signed to a label
Likes to take risks, ain't afraid to play ball
Anyway little man, you look tired, and my parking ticket's expired
So I'm going outside to sort it out and smoke a snout
Be back in a while

[Chorus: José González]
Don't you know that I'll be around to guide you
Through your weakest moments to leave them behind you?
Returning nightmares only shadows
We'll cast some light and you'll be alright

[Verse 2: Plan B]
Hey come on now open the door
You're fourteen years old, not four
I don't wanna hear you cry no more
I know it's your birthday that's why
Ah! I'm sorry that I spoiled it
You know I didn't mean it when
I said I shoulda w***ed you down the toilet
It's just sometimes you make me see red
And I get a screw loose in my head
Plus I was already angry
You know I just sacked my ba** player Andy
'Cause he f**ked my girlfriend called Candy
On the launch night of The Best of Plan B
I shoulda known this day would come
Oh, how I wish I'd stayed with your mum
Made things work, I'm so dumb
Worse than that - I'm a c**t
F**k me I need a fag
Oh, come on son, don't be like that
All I need's a drag
I know I said I'd quit but I feel like sh*t and I need it bad
Okay, come out your room now it's your day
Go back downstairs with your mates
And blow out the candles on your cake
[Chorus: José González]
Don't you know that I'll be around to guide you
Through your weakest moments to leave them behind you?
Returning nightmares only shadows
We'll cast some light and you'll be alright
We'll cast some light and you'll be alright for now

[Verse 3: Plan B]
Hey son, don't cry, know it's hard but you have to try
Hold it together and accept that I
Lived my life now I'm going to die
Course I wish I could turn back time
Before my lungs became cancerous
If I knew then what I know now I would have put up with the anxiousness
That you feel when you need a snout
But shoulda, woulda, coulda can't help me now
So let's not waste the time I have left
'Specially when I got a lot to get off my chest
I need to tell you this now
When you was born I made a vow
Crossed my heart and hoped to die, looked to the sky and swore that I
Would never let you down
So I'm sorry that I did
When you was a kid and I spent months being on tour
No son it ain't alright, I really shoulda been there more
Been there for you when you needed me
Instead of going out and cheating repeatedly
On your poor old mother, yeah I really do love her
It's a shame I only realise now
There's a tube in my arm that a drip goes down
Sitting here waiting till this sh*t goes down
Who woulda thought out of Ca**el and me
That old motherf**ker would outlive me
Though I never went deaf like Beni G
Or f**ked my liver with Hennessy
I'm still gonna die before I get to see
My grandkids grow up to be
Old enough to have a drink with me
But hey
That's life
What's that?
That's nice
Can't you see
That light?
Coming from the ceiling shining bright
Son I think I'm about to die
Feel like I'm going up, up to the sky
I thought I'd be afraid but I feel alright
My lungs feel good they don't feel tight
Son I love you, please don't cry
Everything's gonna be just fine
Going to heaven don't mean I've died
I'mma live forever down deep inside
Your heart until it stops, and they send you up here
But until that time, you're gonna be fine, I'll watch over you from here
[Chorus: José González]
Don't you know that I'll be around to guide you
Through your weakest moments to leave them behind you?
Returning nightmares only shadows
We'll cast some light and you'll be alright
We'll cast some light and you'll be alright for now
