Michael Young ~ A Song For Momma

• Written by  • Featuring KevinJunior

Verse 1:
I remember when summertime used to come out
And I would stay on the block until it hit one out
And you would call me and tell me im too young for this pride
Being young and black in this world, that's no way to survive
I remember when pain and stress had you lifted
And you would work 3 jobs just to forget it
Them painkillers ain't get it, shit they was killing your system
Popping pills on the counter, start to become an addiction
I was too young and naive, tryna live this life up in a brighter way
But darker days took something special in life away
I felt guilty that you were feeling that type of way
But nothing i say could ever rephrase
Everything that you said whenever we went through that phase
All the pain that you felt whenever this life had its ways
At eating up at your pride, you feeling so guilty and so hollow inside
Momma you're the only reason i'm alive, and now i know why
 
Hook:
I'll remember you and all i put you through
Cause you said, "in this life, ain't nothing we can't do"
But, I'll remember you and everything you said
Cause you said, "in this life, we gonna be just fine"
 
Verse 3:
Remember them cookouts, when i was on the look out
For women i could've took out, you would say i'm too young for that shit
Either way i'm still young to you by the older i get
And everywhere that i go, you tell me never forget
Where you're from, what your people did for all of us to survive
You would tell me all the things they did to keep me alive
I would listen and often times i'd get mighty surprised
All that back and forth traveling just to give and provide
And I didn't know why, but now im conscious
You were living in nonsense, tryna stop us
So we didn't go through that process
With seven kids to raise, you never showed stress or a little bit of craze
And so you get the praise, so imma keep you in reps til' the day of my death
Imma keep giving you all til' there ain't nothing left
And know, for everything, i can't repay you even if i tried
Momma, you're the only reason i'm alive, and now i know why
 
Hook:
I'll remember you and all i put you through
Cause you said, "in this life, ain't nothing we can't do"
But, I'll remember you and everything you said
Cause you said, "in this life, we gonna be just fine"
 
Verse 3:
Remember when i was doubtful and heard a mouthful of people with broken dreams
You never gave up on us
And even when this life turned out to be nothing what it seems
You never gave up on us
Remember crying to myself cause I swear i couldn't take no more
Of being overlooked, there really ain't no sore
That hurts more than being ignored by the ones
Who always say they love you, but still always unsure
Man i swear i'm getting over my head
Thinking of ways to get you a better place so instead
Imma make sure everything that is written in red
So that you know my word is bond
Like every word that serves this song
Imma get the money i earn and splurge you on
Cause you deserve more and the world that served you wrong
And know, for everything, i can't repay you even if i tried
Momma, you're the only reason i'm alive, and now i know why
 
Hook:
I'll remember you and all i put you through
Cause you said, "in this life, ain't nothing we can't do"
But, I'll remember you and everything you said
Cause you said, "in this life, we gonna be just fine"
 
Bridge:
And now i know why, you're the only reason im alive (x4)
 
Hook:
I'll remember you and all i put you through
Cause you said, "in this life, ain't nothing we can't do"
But, I'll remember you and everything you said
Cause you said, "in this life, we gonna be just fine"
