I'm Sorry Mama

I'm Sorry Mama©

Breeeeeth[between each bar]

Chorus One:
And I put it on my mama y'all, there was always tears and pain/
And if I was given the chance, I would try to change everything/
Now I'm sittin' here in a cell, face to face with the death penalty
Cause I was a problem child, livin' life as a real O.G./

Verse One:
I'd hit the block where I carried fame/and the money came with blood stains/
Getting paper with a dangerous cause/even if it came to throwin' flame/
I'd turn it in on the weekend/get fresh and roll on out to the club/stop by
My homies house and grab a sack/and go ahead and roll it up/thought I had what I wanted
Fly ride, big crib, it was nice/but now all I really want/is another chance at
Life/Lookin' back on what I had/I'll tell you now it wasn't worth shit/I'd
Have turned it all in/if I'd known it turn out like this/


Verse Two:
The police brought me home/when IW as only 10 years old/told my mother I
Had broke the law/ it was breakin' into peoples homes/I remember that look
I saw/she was a woman madder than hell/my others intuition/that
Look was my future foretold/she did all she really could/and she'd sit at the
Table and cry/but I never seen it/so her pain just passed me by/she was too
Strong to let me know/that I was breakin' her down/she stood tall while
I broke her heart/like a queen representin' her crown/and mama I
Apologize/but how was I supposed to know/if you would have told/I
Wouldn't have been so cold/now everytime that it rains/until the day
I die/I'll remember yo' pretty face/ cause that's what happens when
Angels cry/


Verse Three:
I may be at my end. But you know it ain't too late/ For you to see
My tears screamin' sorry all down my face/and for everyone
That falls it's a prayer for you to know/that everytime I
Broke your heart mine now breaks down 10 fold/and if I
Could buy a wish I'd pay for it with my soul/and give you
A new heart oblivious to sorrow/So that is what I have right
Here inside my chest/here take it from me for your pain
This is what's best.
