Yeah, this song right here is about a lot of different people
Wwomen, I know, family members, things we go through, y'know?
And it just means that, sister I understand
You can't have trials without tribulations
And umm, sometimes we just need God to work that out
I'ma kick it like this, look

This beat reminds me of a lounge on a Wednesday night
Shorty chillin' at the bar ain't have no friends in sight
I rolls up like, "Damn girl, what you in tonight?"
She looked up said, "This ain't how I wanna spend my life"

Tears in her face, fear in her face
Man this ain't about love, she was feelin' disgraced
She said, "In five years I got three kids, two different dads
I'm pregnant now and I don't know who the father is"

Heavy thing, she was tellin' me everything
Her mother became a widow before she got the wedding ring
Shorty was locked in a prison, I wanted to set her free
But I couldn't, so I sat and listened

With no intermission, I didn't interrupt her
To tell the truth, originally I just wanted to fuck her
But, heh, I was like damn, girl, you gon' be okay?
She turned around and said

Yeah, sister, I know that sometimes
This world don't treat you, right, yeah
And sister, I know that he left you
With too many, responsibilities, yeah

Look, love don't love nobody, drugs don't love nobody
So why you put that shit in your body?
Now we can't have a decent conversation
'Cause she always shakin'

I tried to deny it at first, it bothers me now
Don't ask for money, you done ten dollar'd me out
I even took yo' kids when they put you out the last house
But I will not baby sit while you in a crack house

And I would hate to turn 'em over to the state
Look what I did, I let they bad-ass stay and just tear up my crib
While you hurt me child, horribly
He asked me, "Why my momma love drugs more than me?"

I couldn't answer, I sat back and peered in the sky
I thought it was rainin' but damn, there was tears in my eyes
He was like you gon' be alright Uncle Che?
I'm like man, look

Yeah, sister, don't you know
You're worth, more than gold, yeah
(Way more than gold)
And sister, don't you know
I sew what's in your, soul, yes, I do, yes, I do

And I know Daddy did you wrong
But you got to be strong
'Cause you will see the sun shine
(The sun's gonna shine)

Yes you will see
(You will see, you will see, you will see)
The sun shine
(Yeah, yeah, oh yeah)

The sun's gon' shine
(The sun's gon' shine)
The sun's gon' shine
(The sun's gon' shine)

The sun's gon' shine
(The sun's gon' shine)
I said the sun's gon' shine
(The sun's gon' shine)

Ohh hmm, oh sister, I know
Sister I know that it gets so hard for you, babe
(You don't understand)

And that's why I'm here
Baby, you should have no fear
(That's why I need ya)
Sister, sister, sister, sister, sister
