playCall it love and devotion
playCall it the mom’s adoration (foundation)

playShe works the night, by the water
playShe's gonna stress,
playso far away from my father's daughter
playShe just wants a life for her baby
playAll on her own, no one will come
playShe's got to save him (daily struggle)

playShe tells him "ooh love"
playNo one's ever gonna hurt you, love
playI'm gonna give you all of my love
playNobody matters like you
play(stay up there, stay up there)
playShe tells him
play"your life ain't gonna be nothing like my life

playYou're gonna grow and have a good life
playI'm gonna do what I've got to do"
