I’m Sorry

It’s hard to get by but I’m saying this wat honesty
not right now but one day mum I promise see
I make you so proud but for now here’s my apology

Let’s take it back for a second man I’m 8 years old
You gotta move to Amsterdam where its way too cold
Cos life in south Africa is way too hopeless
we’re about to lose our house to an eviction notice
a single mom to three and your feeling in doubt
so work in another country puts cash the bank account
then my older bro and sis had to take care of me
traumatized 8 year old feeling like he needs therapy
hes sisters only 20 hes brothers 17
but they gotta be adults paying bills they’ve never seen
and on top of that you see his dad is millionaire
refusing to see his son cos it seems hes never there
and even in Amsterdam ma you gave us every cent
with 5 euros in your pure making sure its well spent
I was in the second grade so I couldn’t understand
as a mother it was hard doing all that you can so I’m sorry

I know I need some growing up, but I promise it be better when my musics blowing up till then I’m sorry
uh uh I swear I’m sorry uh uh I promise one day it be better but till then I swear I’m sorry
I know I make you mad its hard to realize, till the day that I get big il wipe those tears from your eyes I swear I’m sorry
uh uh I m swear I’m sorry I promise one day it be better but till then I swear I’m sorry

At the moment I can see that its getting that worse
working 6 days a week to the point where your back hurts
no mom should have to do that at the age of 56
And I know I make you angry to the point of feeling sick
and the age of 10 you got us to Australia its true
that now I’ve got it all and simply from you
and at the moment I can tell that really hurts to see
but its cos of you I’m getting a university degree
I’m dropping tears on my hand as I write this
its hard to admit I’m in financial crisis
tryna make moves with this music till my backs bent
living in a country that’s refusing my accent
but I promise I will do it, not for me but for you
you the only reason I persist so one day I’ll make it through
but till then heres my apology listen don’t worry
cause one day we’ll laugh about but till then ma I’m sorry

I know I need some growing up, but I promise it be better when my musics blowing up till then I’m sorry
uh uh I swear I’m sorry uh uh I promise one day it be better but till then I swear I’m sorry
I know I make you mad its hard to realize, till the day that I get big il wipe those tears from your eyes I swear I’m sorry
uh uh I’m swear I’m sorry I promise one day it be better but till then I swear I’m sorry
