Mystic – Fatherless Child lyrics

Feels better if I tell em my story
Yo, on November 24th, 1999
I was in L. A., and I was in the kitchen cookin
And I got this page right
And uh, I called back and I was informed that
My father had passed away from a herion overdose
About two hour's earlier
So this song is for him, and to him
And for all the fatherless children in the world
The mother's who raised us, the people who love us
It's a Monday, finally found the perfect beat
To speak my peace on how I came to be
The way I was raised, how I was born
Why I smile so sad, and have the eyes of a storm
Moms from Virginia, you from Rhode Island
Met up in the state where the sun's always smilin
Minds connected, physicals exchanged
Y'all both believin that the world can be changed
Time passed to 1973, and you begged my mom to create me
First she said no but she loved you too much
1974 had a child to touch
We was into other things, that ripped life scenes
Liqour, drugs, other women, destroyin dreams
But you know how women be, she tried to hold on
For the sake of your love and the beautiful bond
I'ma fatherless child, it's all I ever been
It's all I ever be, since your gone from me
Still I hope you know, that I can never unlove you, love you
[Verse 2:]
1974 was a year things changed
Too much alcholol makes people violent and strange
You broke the window's with a baseball bat
As my mother cried inside with me on her lap
The dream destroyed, it was time to leave
She didn't take much, just a few things of lovin me
That was the birth of this fatherless child
And a struggling mother with the world in her eyes
She did it though, put herself in college
