Lyrics:Yo, we gotta start respectin life more y'all
You look at your brother man you gotta see
yourself
Gotta see the God within him
Brothers gettin changed real quick over nothin

We losin too many of ours
Gotta recreate y'all
Yo, check it


Knowin you the best part of life, do I have the right to take yours
Cause I created you,
irresponsibly
Subconciously knowin the act I was a part of
The start of somethin, I'm
not ready to bring into the world
Had myself believin I was sterile
I look into
mother's stomach, wonder if you are a boy or a girl
Turnin this woman's womb into a tomb

But she and I agree, a seed we don't need
You would've been much more than a mouth to
feed
But someone, I woulda fed this information I read
to someone, my life for you I
woulda had to leave
Instead I lead you to death
I'm sorry for takin your first breath,
first step, and first cry
But I wasn't prepared mentally nor financially
Havin a child
shouldn't have to bring out the man in me
Plus I wanted you to be raised within a family

I don't wanna, go through the drama of havin a baby's momma
Weekend visits and buyin
J's ain't gon' make me a father
For a while bearing a child is somethin I never wanted to do

For me to live forever I can only do that through you
Nerve I got to talk about them
n---az with a gun
Must have really thought I was God to take the life of my son
I
could have sacrificed goin out
To think my homies who did it I used to joke about, from now
on
I'ma use self control instead of birth control
Cause $315 ain't worth your soul

$315 ain't worth your soul
$315 ain't worth it

[Lauryn Hill (two layers
of vocals, same words)]
I, never dreamed you'd leave, in summer
You said you would be
here when it rained
[Common] Yo
Why didn't you stay

Seeing you as a
present and a gift in itself
You had our child in you, I probably never feel what you felt

But you dealt with it like the strong black woman you are
Through our trials and
tribulations, child's elimination
An intergration of thoughts I feel about the situation

Back and forth my feelings was pacin
Happy deep down but not joyed enough to have it

But even that's a lie in less than two weeks, we was back at it
Is this unprotected
love or safe to say it's lust
Bustin, more than the sweat in somebody you trust
Or is
it that we don't trust each other enough
And believe, havin this child'll make us have to
stay together
Girl I want you in my life cause you have made it better
Thinkin we all
in love cause we can spend a day together
We talkin spendin the rest of our lives
It's
too many black women that can say they mothers
but can't say that they wives
I
wouldn't chose any other to mother my understanding
But I want our Parenthood to come from
Planning
It's so much in my life that's undone
We gotta see eye to eye, about family,
before we can become one
If you had decided to have it the situation I wouldn't run from

But I'm walkin, findin myself in my God
So I can, discipline my son with my writin

Not have a judge tellin me how and when to raise my seed
Though his death was at our
greed, with no one else to blame
I had a book of Afrikan names, case our minds changed

You say your period hasn't came, and lately I've been sleepy
So quit smokin the weed and the
beadies and let's have this boy

[Lauryn Hill]
I, never dreamed you'd leave in
summer
You said you would be here when it rained
You said you would be here when it
rained
Ohh I, never dreamed you'd leave in summer
Now the situation's made things
change
Things change
Why, didn't you stay
Why didn't you stay...
I,
never dreamed you'd leave, in summer
In summer
You said you would be here when, it
rained
When it rained, it rained
Ohhhohh I, never dreamed, you'd leave in summer

You said you wouldn't leave
Now the situation's made things change
Things
change, why didn't you stay?
Stay, stay stay stay stay stay stay
Mmmmm, stayyy

Uh-uh
Ohh why didn't you stay
