(feat. Anthony Hamilton)

[Nick Talking]
Talking Ma
I know the Situation is Personal
But it something that has to be told
As i was making this beat
You was all i could think about you heard my voice

[Verse 1]
Yeah Just think (Just Think)
What if you could Just
Just blink your self away..
Just (Just wait) just pause for a second
Let me plead my case
Its the late 70's Huh
You Seventeen huh
And having me that will ruin everything huh
Its a lot of angel waiting for there wings
You see me in your sleep so you can't kill your dreams
300 Dollars that's the price of living what?
Mommy i don't like this clinic
Hopefully you'll make the right decision
And don't go though with the Knife incision
But it hard to make the right move
When you in high school
How you have to work all day and take night school
Hopping off da bus when the rain is pouring
What you want morning sickness or the Sickness of mourning?

[Chorus]
I'll Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know It's always True
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
I'll Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know It's always True
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE

[Verse 2]
I' am a child of the king
Aint no need to go fear me
And i see the flowing tears so know that you hear me
When i move in your womb that's me being scaring
Cause who knows where my future holds
Yo the truth be told you aint told a soul
Yo you aint even showing i just 2 moths old
Thorough your clothes try to hide me deny
Me went up 3 sizes
Your pride got you lying saying aint nothing but a migraine
It aint surprising you not trying to be in wick food lines
Your friends look at you funny but look at you mommy
Thatz a life inside take a look at your tummy
What is becoming ma i am Oprah bound
You can tell he's a star from the Ultrasound
Our Sprits Connected Doors Open Now
Nothing But Love And Respect Thanks For Holding Me Down She Let Me Live...

[Chorus]
Ill Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul know it's always True
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
Ill Always Be apart of you
Trust Your Soul Know it's always True
If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
CAN I LIVE
CAN I LIVE
[Repeat 2]

[Nick Talking]

Its uplifting foreal yall
I aint passing no judgement
Aint making no decisions
I am just telling ya'll my story
I love life
I love my mother for giving me life
We all need to appreciate life
A strong woman that had to make a sacrifice
Thanks for listening
Thanks for listening
Mama thanks for listening

    It means a lot to me. Babies are gifts and they are so innocent. They do not have to suffer from our actions. Even if it was unplanned, they are never unplanned. They deserve to live and become who they are supposed to be in life.

    Honestly, this song is the reason my daughter is alive today. I was considering an abortion and then i heard this song and i totally changed my mind. It was some kind of sign to hear this song right after my decision to abort my daughter. Thank You So Much Nick!! You may not know how much this song affected anybody but it truly did!!!
