Retrospect For Lif (feat. Lauryn Hill)

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 niggaz 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 t'ree hunderd 'n' fi'teen dolla's ain't worth your soul

t'ree hunderd 'n' fi'teen dolla's ain't worth your soul

t'ree hunderd
