This is what I get for having expectations
'Cause I forgot where I came from
What if I'm gone, will you wake up?
Would it then all make you wake up?

Hey mama, just wanted to tell you I love you
Don't know if I say it enough
But I've been really prayin' for us
And I thank god for you
Man, I look up to you, man
If I was in trouble, I need somebody I run to you (yeah)
If I never told you, you was my idol like really my idol
Whatever you said to me I took it in, like it was the bible
When you look at me, I wanna know, the feelin' inside you
I guess sometimes I just wonder if you feel the way I do
Remember my 10th birthday, when you apologiezed
You couldn't buy cake so you bought me McDonald's fries
I thanked you but you got my brother gifts alot of times
For me you say can use some time, but never got the time
I figured it was for the bills, but for real how you really feel
I know this birthday around tax time so is that what it is
I know you gotta love me mom, 'cause every moma loves ther kids
I just really think it's fucked up but I guess it is what it is
Remember recitals, I played the piano, I waited and you never came
You said you was working
But got home from work from my brother, went to every game
He never even really scored, but you was just there to support
But I know basketball is more fun to watch then piano on show
I really forgive you! And imma' continue forgiving you
I made up a whole lot of reasons, 'cause I know it can't be intentional
When I was in the hospital, you said you hope I got better
When he was down to whether, you was in the Hospital till' he got better
I don't understand!
When you look at me, I feel like you regret me
But the look inside your eyes when you see him sometimes affect me
I was tryin' to be so perfect, just to feel like you accept me
I love the way you love, but you love everyone except me!
Be honest, Mom!
When nobody come thru' for you, I'm present
But when Christmas come around, you don't think to get me a present
Man, that's fucked up!
'Cause I spent my whole life tryin' to impress you
But I guess I ain't really special

This is what I get for having expectations
'Cause I forgot where I came from
What if I'm gone, will you wake up?
Would it then all make you wake up?

You really showed me how much a parent could love their child
So much that they forget they got another child
Man, my whole life I just wanted to make my mother proud
One day if you see the difference, when I can't come around
