everybody's askin' me lately
where i'm from
they wanna know what i've been through
and what dirt i've done
but man if i told you what i've seen and been through then you'd probably run off
you'd be scared of the truth
so instead in secret lined in chalk
you see i've been lost
ever since i could walk
lookin' for my daddy
and any one of momma's boyfriends who would talk
or listen to me when i spoke
instead of lookin' at me like a joke
or leavin' me behind, leavin' me to cry when he treated my momma like a ho
but i learnt quick
that my daddy wasn't never gonna come around
and i didn't give a shit
'cause me and my momma we held it down
no new kicks
first day of school i'm goodwill bound
but when you come from the trench
that's how you learn to walk around
so i don't give a fuck if you ever lay eyes on top of my new shoes homie
i just wanted you to know that i didn't need a dollar from you i got 'em myself
so if you find yourself in the middle of the floor with a bottle drinkin' yourself lonely
then you can keep up with me with the picture of me in the magazine on the shelf
turn the page

daddy can you see me?
i'm puttin' on a show
in the magazines
hear me on the radio
so what do you think (well i)
i hope that you're proud now
to watch it all go down
i'm sorry daddy
you didn't get to watch me grow
now i'm always on the road
no time to say hello (bye)
and i hope that you're proud now
to watch it all go down

yeah momma you look great
so perfect
be safe on your first date
that's for certain
if he brings you home too late
i'll hurt him
don't worry about me, i'm safe
i'll close the curtains
and i feel like i'm raising you
but what do i know, baby blue
all i know is that i was made in you
so i put all my faith in you
yeah i was only ten but i felt like a man, and i had to let you go
all i wanted was for us to be rich, teardrops in my cereal bowl
so i turned into a asshole
young and dumb
smokin' weed
vandalizin'
robbin' houses
stealin' cars
that was me
but everything i did i had to see
feel the pain
had to grieve
to become
who i am
and i'm proud of the man i came to be
'cause what i've learned could not be taught
what i've earned could not be bought
justified
deserve it all
so don't be concerned, it's not your fault
i never counted sheep
i count my blessings
so if you see him now momma, don't give him the cold shoulder, give him my message
just tell him

daddy can you see me?
i'm puttin' on a show
in the magazines
hear me on the radio
so what do you think (well i)
i hope that you're proud now
to watch it all go down
i'm sorry daddy
you didn't get to watch me grow
now i'm always on the road
no time to say hello (bye)
and i hope that you're proud now
to watch it all go down
