Auburn Growing Up

See my girl sitting alone

Went To Ask Her “Girl What’s Wrong?”

Seen Her Staring At Her Phone

She Said I’m Having Problems At Home

Said I Know What Your Going Through

She Said No I Don’t Think You Do

Could Tell She Wanted Me To Go Away

But Something Said No Auburn Stay

I Said Just Tell Me What’s On Your Mind

She Said No I Don’t Have The Time

I Said Well Can’t We At Least Pray

Then She Turned Around To Say

Growing Up Was Real Hard For Me

Watching Daddy Beat Mommy Till She Bleeds

I Was Young But I Still Stay By Her Side

Now I Cry And I Pray To God But I Wonder Why

Growing Up Was Real Hard For Me

Watching Daddy Beat Mommy Till She Bleeds

I Was Young But I Still Stay By Her Side

Now I Cry And I Pray To God But I Wonder Why

I said girl I had no clue

She Said Yeah Well Now You Do

I Watched Her As She Checked Her Hair

She Said I Gotta Be Somewhere

I Said Well Where You Headed To

She Said Somewhere With This Dude

I Met Him At The Club Last Night

I don’t really know him but he seemed right

I Said Well

What If He’s Wrong

I Don’t Think You Should Be Alone

She Said Don’t Worry I Don’t Trust No Man

I Learned That From Living With My Dad

I’m At My Mom’s I’ll Be Just Fine

I’m Just Trying To Go And Get Mine

I Looked At Her Like She Bumped Her Head

Then She Turned Around And Said

Growing Up Was Real Hard For Me [Phone Ringing]

Hello?

Where You At? You Ready?

Yeah I’m Outside

I Brought My Homies That’s Cool?

I Guess It’s Alright

You By Yourself Sure There Ain’t Nobody Else

Yeah

Aight I’m On My Way

Can’t You See What’s Going On

They Tryna Get You All Alone

She Said That’s Usually How It Is

Your Treating Me Like I Am A Kid

I said girl you just turned 18

About The Same Age As Me

She Said I Don’t Need Your Help

I’m Doing Fine All By Myself

I Said Well Girl Don’t Get Help From Me

Can We Please Get On Our Knees

Please Before You Go That Way

Can We Please Kneel Down And Pray

Father We Come To You Wholeheartedly

And I Ask That You Hear Our Prayer

And You Give Her The Heart And The Mercy To Look Past Her Father’s Mistakes

Just As You Have Been Merciful To Her All Of These Years

But I Know You See What She Goes Through

And I Know You Been Trying To Reach Her

But God She Was Deafened And Blinded With Hatred

But Now She’s Here Lord

And We’re Ready To Listen

She’s Ready To Listen

Amen

Your Body Is My Temple

And Your A Precious Jewel

Don’t Let No One Take That Away

I Know Just What You Go Through

Cause Every Night I Heard You

It’s Just You Couldn’t Hear Me

So Don’t Worry About Your Mother

Or Your Little Brothers

I Took Them Just To Ease Their Pain

But I Loved You Just To Use You

I See How He Abused You

But All Of That Will Change Today

Growing Up Was Real Hard For Me

Watching Daddy Beat Mommy Till She Bleeds

I Was Young But I Still Stay By Her Side

Now I Cry And I Pray To God But I Wonder Why

Growing Up Was Real Hard For Me

Watching Daddy Beat Mommy Till She Bleeds

I Was Young But I Still Stay By Her Side

Now I Cry And I Pray To God But I Wonder Why
