Flipsyde - Happy Birthday

rate me

[Verse 1]

Please accept my apologies, wonder what would have been

would you have been a little angel? or an angel of sin?

tom-boy running around, hanging with all the guys?

or a little tough boy with beautiful brown eyes?

paid for the murder befor they had determined the sex

choosing our life over your life meant your death

and you never got a chance to even open your eyes

sometimes I wonder as a fetus if you fought for your life?

Would you have been a little genius, in love with math?

Would you have played in your school clothes and made me mad?

would you have been a little rapper like your poppa the piper?

would you have made me quit smoking by finding one of my lighters?

I wonder about your skintone and shape of your nose

and the way you would have laughed and talked fast or slow

I think about it every year, so I picked up a pen

Happy birthday, I love you whoever you would have been

[Chorus x 2]

Happy birthday

What I thought was a dream

make a wish

was as real as it seemed

I made a mistake

[Verse 2]

I got a million excuses, as to why you died

and other people got their own reasons for homocide

who's to say it would have worked

and who's to say it wouldn't have

I was young and struggling, but old enough to be a dad

the fear of being my father has never disappeared

I ponder it frequently while I'm sipping on my beer

my vision of a family was artificial and fake

so when it came time to create I made a mistake

now you got a little brother, maybe it's really you

maybe you really forgave us knowing we was confused

maybe, every time that he smiles

it's you proudly knowing that your father is doing the right thing now

I never tell a woman what to do with her body

but if she don't love children then we can't party

I think about it every year so I picked up a pen

Happy birthday, I love you whoever you would have been

[Chorus x 2]

Happy birthday

What I thought was a dream

make a wish

was as real as it seemed

I made a mistake

[repeat x2]

from the heavens to the womb

to the heavens again

from the ending to the ending

never got to begin

maybe one day we can meet face to face

in a place without time and space

happy birthday

[Chorus x 2]

Happy birthday

What I thought was a dream

make a wish

was as real as it seemed

I made a mistake<br><br>Thanks to thudord
