When I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya,
I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh...

I had a father who came from nothing
He took that and he made it something
He'd seen it all by his 21st, right
His mum and dad both left this earth, why
It was the drinking that killed his mother
He's watching the same thing kill his brother
And he doesn't say it much but he really loves us
And he doesn't want the same thing to kill his sons
When he sees me with a drink in my hand
I understand now why he thinks that it's bad
Cause he knows that it's so evil
But he knows we're our own people, so he let's us go

When I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...
I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...
Now I know, now I know, now I know oh oh ohh...
Now I know, now I know, now I know oh oh ohh...
I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...

See, I don't know if God's real
But if he is I can image how God feels
And there's things I'd discuss with him
I bet he wouldn't change much
But there's shit he would have done different
When my grandpa passed away
I remember saying bye on his last few days
And I'm hoping there's a heaven
I want to meet again
And I never met anybody as positive as him
Not many were as sick as him

But he didn't let the illness kill his grin
And that's why I went ahead and inked my skin
Cause I remember the smile when I think of him

When I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...
I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...
Now I know, now I know, now I know oh oh ohh...
Now I know, now I know, now I know oh oh ohh...
I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...

I didn't know that my brother got bullied in school
If I could go back now, I wouldn't be fooled
He probably thought mum and dad don't fucking care
But it wasn't even that, they were so unaware
Living in a family where money is favored
Makes us wanna say, I fuckin' hate it
Brother though we gotta feel blessed as fuck
Just remember they only want the best for us
We got a mum that's an angel, I'm thankful
To even have her in my life, I'm grateful
Family is anybody that close to you
See this song right here, it is overdue
For you...

When I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...
I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...
Now I know, now I know, now I know oh oh ohh...
Now I know, now I know, now I know oh oh ohh...
I was just a child, I didn't know much about ya, ooh... ooh...

    When he was a child he was unaware of his problems in his childhood and now he understands and this song is about what he regrets.

    I feel so touched by this song. U really shouldn't judge people on what they look like. 360 has had a hard life before fame and now it is his time to tell the world

    The meaning of this song connects with me in some ways i was only young when my sister committed suicide and i didn't quite understand and she was also a user of drugs, i also watched my nan die i was only 9 and i didn't know what to do i don't talk to my parents as they don't care my mum has threatened me and my dads depressed as is my brother so with this song it makes me feel like its not my fault anymore. So 360 wrote this to express how it went down for him and makes who he is today

    I think this song is about how alcohole has killed his brother and his mum and his dad is sad when 360 picks up a bottle and how he lost his grandfather to and also got a new tatto.
