LUDACRIS - Ocean Skies lyrics

rate me

Ft. Monica


And the winner for the best rap album goes to...

Ludacris, it's yo year, baby

This goes out to my father, who is in critical condition right now

I appreciate your prayers, mr. Wayne Bridges, I luv ya

RIP Wayne Bridges, you still livin' through me


Look, I lost my father to the bottle

I'd hug a man today like I might not see him tomorrow

Got enough sorrow for a lifetime

Cuz when he was living I'm thinking how do I get him to listen

When he was seldom in his right mind

My early years I was too young to understand

But I remember the smell of beer and seein' all em empty cans

Waking up, cryin' in the night, hearing arguments

Hands off my mama, somehow knew he was the cause of it

Got a lil older and it got a lil worse

Drinkin' must be his remedy, he got a lil curse

Well, tell me what's the cure fo' a man who misses pops

The beat goes on, but the drinkin's got to stop!


If I had to know, I woul have seen u tomorrow

I would've got a hold of ur heart, and put ur love in a bottle

But now you got me drunk off that thing, gone out the sorrow

Wishin' every day you were here with me

But now that you're gone, I lost my heart to the bottle

To the bottle, woah oh-oh-oh

(Verse 2)

Yeah, I lost my father to the bottle

Functioning alcoholics what they called it, 'far as I know

Became a teenager and started to understand

But even thru' drinks he still taught me to be a man

So befo' the hospital, or the paramedics __________(?)

Any and everybody who met him, instantly loved him

Ironic how conjure would made him even sicker

Cuz who gon' tell him he can't drink none of his son's liquor?!

And tell me how without my father am I supposed to manage?

He had the biggest heart, but had that liver damage

So tell me what's the cure for a man who misses pops?

The beat goes on, but the drinkin's got to stop



Not a day goes by that I don't miss yoy

And don't wish u here with me

No matter what u did

I forgive you

(Verse 3)

I lost my father to the bottle

Tell yo parents u luv 'em, u might not see 'em tomorrow

I swallow my pride, try to put my problems aside

But I feel so hollow inside, got to keep my eyes on the prize,

Cuz I'm steady wishin' you were here to see the goals that I plan to reach

You left the day after I put u into my Grammys speech

It's almost like you waited just to see me win

Well, pops I can't wait untill the day we meet again



I can't get ova you

Love in a bottle, oh, I miss you

I wanna see you tomorrow

I wanna see you again

I wanna see you tomorrow

I miss you, I love you
