lyrics

Please Help me Lord
Everyday feels like it's only getting harder,
Please Help me Lord
Tryin to find a way to try and be a better father
For my children's sake I need to make sure I don't loose,
Learn from you and make it certain I know I wont Loose.

Verse One

Wssup pops. it's been a while since we last spoke
it's been a while since I heard you bussin Ya last joke.
there's jus a few things I needed to say
before that kidney damage came an then it took U away
I remember back in the day you and the drink didn't play
youd be drinking whiskey and beer from the start of the day
an I ain't forgotten
all of them times that we used to squabble
I was gettin throttled
not mollycoddled
from when U hit the bottle
an now I'm here jus doin the same
sipping liquor n beer n
tryin to drink away all this pain
takin the blame
an tryin to block out all of this shame
wishin U didn't leave me Pam Maureen n Wayne.
I'm sayin it plain before it starts to play on my brain
you've left a mark on my life jus like a permanent stain
thinkin about my family an then the sham became
U had another life an knew that they were never the twain
im sayin.


Please Help me Lord
Everyday feels like it's only getting harder,
Please Help me Lord
Tryin to find a way to try and be a better father
For my children's sake I need to make sure I don't loose,
Learn from you and make it certain I know I wont Loose.

Verse Two

this is the hardest thing I ever wrote
cos in Ur last few years we hardly ever spoke
tryin to stop cryin in here
this is weird
even my beers started tastin of tears
I had a good life an ill never take that for granted
I ain't bitchin I'm jus tryin to say
I wish that it lasted
u went an left my mothers heart covered in plasters
now my lifes is just a reflection of the seeds that you planted.
but now that I'm a father I see
I know this apple it didn't fall too far from the tree.
I'm proud of how u brought me up an how U taught me to see
but Ur also the furthest person that I'm tryin to be.
I'm breakin the chain
my fams still takin the strain
I'm tryin to break the cycle of all this generational pain
eh yo
I love u pops but I'm jus keepin it real
an tryin to show U how the youngest of ya family feels.


Please Help me Lord
Everyday feels like it's only getting harder,
Please Help me Lord
Tryin to find a way to try and be a better father
For my children's sake I need to make sure I don't loose,
Learn from you and make it certain I know I wont Loose.

Verse Three

I've learnt a lot from you
all this talent I got from you
I remember when we was welding n I'd spot for you
placing them bets on horses at Ascot for you.
now I'm learning from your mistakes an what not to do.
You was a rolling stone
who was hardly ever at home
but you worked hard
and worked your fingers down to the bone
I was guided
had every BMX could ride
I wasn't privileged but always felt like I was provided
you was stern with it
firm with it
concerned with it
you was taking off your belt in the hope that I learn with it
an I did too
an im glad that I listened too
ya kept my ass busy n kept me outta them prisons too.
but now it's time to listen to Si I know Ur chilling in that betting shop that's up in the sky
it seems bad but it's just that I'm missing my Dad
n I'm dwelling on the relationship I'm wishing we had
im praying.


Please Help me Lord
Everyday feels like it's only getting harder,
Please Help me Lord
Tryin to find a way to try and be a better father
For my children's sake I need to make sure I don't loose,
Learn from you and make it certain I know I wont Loose.

we miss u pops.
an whatever the fuss
Ur memory will live forever thru us.
we still think about U
Everyday Everyday.

we jus need Ur strength to get thru this.

We love u Dad.
