Some days I sit
Starin' out the window
Watchin' this world pass me by
Sometimes I think
There's nothin' to live for
I almost break down and cry
Sometimes I think I'm crazy
I'm crazy, oh so crazy!
Why am I here? am I just wastin' my time?
But then I see my baby
Suddenly I'm not crazy
It all makes sense when I look into her eyes
Oh, no

Sometimes it feels like
The world's on my shoulders
Everyone's leanin' on me
Sometimes I feel like
The world's almost over
But then she comes back to meeeeeeee!

My baby girl
Keeps gettin' older
I watch her grow up with pride
People make jokes
'Cause they don't understand me
They just don't see my real side
I act like shit don't phase me
Inside it drives me crazy
My insecurities could eat me alive
But then I see my baby
Suddenly I'm not crazy
It all makes sense when I look into her eyes
Oh, no

Sometimes it feels like
The world's on my shoulders
Everyone's leanin' on me
Sometimes I feel like
The world's almost over
But then she comes back to meeeeeeee!

If I could sing I'd keep singin' this song to my daughter
If I could hit the notes
I'd blow somethin' as long as my father
To show her how I care about her
How proud I am that I got her
God, I'm a daddy, I'm so glad that her mom didn't [censored]
Now you probably get the picture from my public persona
That I'm a pistol-packin' drug addict
That bags on his mama
But I want to just take this time out to be perfectly honest
There's a lot of shit I keep bottled that hurts deep inside
Of my soul and just know I get colder the older I grow
This boulder on my shoulder gets heavier and harder to hold
And feel like my neck is breakin'
Should I just give up?
Or try to live up to their expections?
Now, look, I love my daughter more than life in itself
But I got a wife who's determined to make my life livin' hell
But I handle it well
Given the circumstances I'm dealt
So many chances, man, it's too bad
Could'a had someone else
But the years that I've wasted is nothin' to the tears that I've tasted
So here's what I'm facin'
Three felonies, six years of probation
I've been to jail for this woman
I've went to bat for this woman
I've taken bats to people's backs
Bent over backwards for this woman
Man, I should'a seen it comin'
Why'd I stick my penis up it?
Would'a ripped the prenup up if I'da seen what she was fuckin'
But fuck it, it's over, there's no more reason to cry no more
I got my baby, Hailie, the only lady that I adore, Hailie
So sayonara, see ya later, nice to know ya
My baby's traveled back to the arms of her rightful owner
But suddenly it seems like my shoulder blades have just shifted
It's like the greatest gift you can get
The weight has been lifted

Now it don't feel like
The world's on my shoulders
Everyone's leanin' on me
'Cause my baby knows that
Her daddy's a soldier
Nothing can take her from meeeeeeee!
