People Under The Stairs

"Letter to my Son"

[Verse 1]
Dear son, I wrote this the day you turned ten
A decade on Earth since your birth, my best friend
And as boys become men and you start on your life plan
A couple notes for you as you grow into a gentleman
Chase your wildest dreams, support yourself to a bigger truth
Work hard, stay patient, stay cool but not aloof
Be kind to everyone, you never know what they're goin' through
Hold the door and greet people even if they're ignorin' you
'Cause we can make small change
While we work towards a bigger one
So volunteer your time, vote
Stand up and never run
Defend those who need help
Respect and communicate
Celebrate diversity and raise your arms up against hate
Don't tolerate half-ass
Let your passion propel you
It's okay to make mistakes but listen what people tell you
Apologize, try to make amends and then move on
Surround yourself with friends
Who always inspire above and beyond
And if they aren't one
Then you walk away
Let 'em know and if they don't respect it, that's okay
Your honor's forever and heroism's from day-to-day
And everything you're doing in the millions of littlest ways
The biggest man is
The humblest man
Find happiness in little things and laugh when you can
Formulate a plan
And then make it your best yet
I always be proud of you, I hope you never forget
That I love you

[Interlude]
You know that I love you (Love you)
And I feel dreams come true
You can bet your money, boy
Life is not a game
You know that I love you (Love you)
'Cause I feel dreams come true
Please stay strong, I will look after you


[Verse 2]
And as for me, I hope that history will be kind
I know I missed a lot of moments as I stayed on my grind
But I want you to know that even though I received a little fame
I'd give it up to go back and never miss a soccer game
The school plays, recitals, no idle hands in our household
But Mommy picked up the slack and for that I'm so thankful
You see a woman can do anything that a man can do
Some cases even better, remember that as you pursue
Love and lust
No always means no
If she's had too many
Anything she says means no
And on that note I know we rapped about the drink and the smoke
But everything in moderation
Addiction is not a joke
And you got Uncles around that need the bottom of the bottle
Confront your problems head on with the zest and the moral
Buy a suit, buy some tools, learn how to use both
Measure twice, cut once, and never lose sight of hope
Because

[Interlude]
You said dreams are funny (Funny)
And life is just the same
You can bet your money, boy
Life is not a game
You know that I love you (Love you)
'Cause I feel dreams come true
Please stay strong, I will look after you
