4 What Its Worth


4 What it's worth...
I apologize
for all those times
I made you hurt.

I know it means nothing now
but just listen, hear me out...

I apologize for being selfish,
young and dumb
I destroyed our love
and shattered our bond.

When pregnant I made you cry
didn't come home at night,
and even when I told the truth,
I lied.

Went through so much together
when life was at its worst
we managed to make it better.

On this journey to become a man
I did things I never planned.

I went to jail and
left our relationship on pause,
Got out but was too blind to see
what I had caused.

I knew things were not the same
No more hugs or kisses
Your fed up
And there's only me to blame.

2 kids posing as adults,
let's separate
to do whats right
is what you thought.

Didn't want to let you go
couldn't believe it
pleaded and argued
through the door.

Just go,
leave
is what you say
suck it up, pack my bags
I'll be gone today.

Back to my mothers,
broken hearted
thinking of my daughter.

But time has passed on
each of us in search of a
happy home.

We all grown up now
no more fighting
& getting loud.

We really don't say much
Just a simple hi or was up.

And that's cool
Just wanted you to realize
that,
4 what it's worth...
I really do apologize.
