Oh no, ya hear me
You tell the future
Yeah, come on
Or maybe your future blank
Oh oh, parental advisory
Oh, watch this

You thinking that your grown now
You got your eyes set on the street some how
You think that you can stand on your feet
No job, no house, no car tell me how can you quire these things

I know just what your thinking
The road you wanna take will leave you sinking
You wanna roll around with your crew
Tow drunks, gang bangs, steal cars, doing all of these horrible things

Now tell me how were you mislead so easily
When you was raised better by your family
You trynna be something that you ain't meant to be
Your mama's on her knees pray to God every night
'Cause she knows that your

Lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light, oh yeah
I'm lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light, yeah lemme know, watch out

See son it's never too late
The effort to correct is never too great
A family should stick together
One blood, one love, one heart open arms welcome you at the gate

You thinking that I'm crazy
I see through all them see your visions, hazy
I'm fired up with the premonitions
Black suits, long faces sad words slow singing at the side of your grave

Now tell me how were you mislead so easily
When you was raised better by your family
You trynna be something that you ain't meant to be
Your mamas on her knees pray to God every night
'Cause she knows that your

Lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light, waiting there at the end of the tunnel
Lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light

Whenever I'm low all I need to know
Is that you're there for me, you're down for me
My strength when I'm weak

Whenever I'm low all I need to know
Is that you're there for me, you're down for me
My strength when I'm weak

Lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light, waiting there at the end of the tunnel
Lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light, waiting there at the end of the tunnel

Lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light, oh yeah
Lost in the still of the night, ain't no need to lose sight
She'll be holding the light
