N-Dubz – Papa Can You Hear Me? lyrics

Dap's to the Y
Nah, nah, frickin'
And this is for my dad
Uncle B, yeah

I don't mean to bore, you know my name?
Chill for a second, just hear my pain
If you've lost any loved ones, you'll feel what I'm saying
I hope it's peaceful down there where they layin'

When someone you loved, who put you up from the start
Built you up and made you into who you are
Who always believed, saying that you'll be a star
Then all of a sudden they just passed

He dash the reaper from on top of ma wardrobe
Slap them crack from side of the mouth
Put me on stage in front of a crowd
Now we're picking up awards while he's under the ground

My daddy this and my daddy that
Well, I found mine dead on a couch in ma flat
So much to say, I wish I coulda said bye
The only time I'll talk to him is when I look into the sky, yeah

All I've got is these pictures of ya
And your light blue crack down Nokia
Things in my house still smell of ya
All I wanna say is that

Papa if you can hear me
I regret every bad thing that I said
Please forgive me if you hear me
Never knew how much I loved ya till you was dead

Papa if you can hear me
If only you knew what you went and done
Please forgive me if you hear me
See all I know is I'm proud to be your son
Papa if you can hear me

There ain't a way in the world
It's how I thought it would end up
If it wasn't for you B there wouldn't be N-Dubz
Kept us together never knowing we'd end up
Moving onto Mobo's pushing the bench up

You pushed and pushed when no one wanted to believe
But back then it was all a dream
It's like you sacrificed your life
For the love of success and a life full of stress, I'm vexed 'cause

First they love you, second they hate you
They talked about you, when they tried to play you
Behind your back they were tryna betray you
But B, I never had a chance to repay you

For the things you done for me, put me on the right path
Kept me from steering left, yeah we had a right laugh
But I be feeling like Bruce Willis
Each and everyday I really wanna 'Die Hard'

All I've got is these pictures of ya
And your light blue crack down Nokia
Things in my house still smell of ya
All I wanna say is that

Papa if you can hear me
I regret every bad thing that I said
Please forgive me if you hear me
Never knew how much I loved ya till you was dead

If only you, papa if you can hear me?
If only you knew what you went and done
Please forgive me if you hear me
Please forgive me if you hear me
See all I know is I'm proud to be your son
Papa if you can hear me

Remember everything that you said
The fights and the laughter
The success and disasters, no
But nothing seems clearer than the day you were gone

You said despite all the stress you have to fight till the death
'Cause little girl you're a star, don't let 'em kill who you are
You see you gave me a chance and now look where I am
You are the reason, I can't wait to see you again

All I've got is these pictures of ya
And your light blue crack down Nokia
Things in my house still smell of ya
All I wanna say is that

Papa if you can hear me
I regret every bad thing that I said
Please forgive me if you hear me
Never knew how much I loved ya till you was dead

Papa if you can hear me
If only you knew what you went and done
Please forgive me if you hear me
See all I know is, I'm proud to be your son
Papa if you can hear me

N-Dubz, Tulis, I have to say I dropped a tear when I done this shh
Like you'll say, you dunno what you got till you lose it
Nah, nah frickin', B you know, I'm gonna fulfill your wish
And take care of mum's in the yard

Papa if you can hear me
Please forgive me if you hear me
