Intro: Faheem Abdul Aziz Ibn Ali Newman.. I gave you that name, boy

Verse 1:
I will never stop being sorry that your home got broken, feel like i owe you for the road that i chose.
But i believe things happen the way there supposed to and you'll always be with me wherever i go.
I was right there for you first breath, used to lay you on my chest when you slept.
I fed you, changed you, read you, bathed you, I aint tryna hold that over your head im sayin' thank you.
God put you in my arms for me to teach you, sometimes i gotta not be popular to reach you.
But boy look me in my eye when i speak to you, I tell you these things 'cause i believe in you.
Respect, patience, exellence and truth, make good choises and always follow through.
But above all else know Allah always watches and everything we do comes back upon us.
Alright lets talk about your mommy, I need you to know i used everything inside me.
To make you as healthy as you could possibly be and I just couldn't see a good future for us three.
And you gonna have questions as you grow, but theres certain negative things that you don't need to know.
A baby boy, thats what this is about, we live learn and figure it out.
I just pray you dont remember us sleeping on the floor and me cleaning mouse droppings outta your toys.
It took alotta hard work for us get where we at and young man we aint quittin' at that.
Just know that it hurts me to death when i leave and go tourin', I'm scared that i might make you feel un-important.
But our bonds so strong that the moment i give all, we seem to pick right back up where we left off.
I try to say i do it for you, but in my heart i know thats not intirely true.
So if i ever come home and feel it hurt us as friends, I swear to God I'll never tour again.
I aint ever met a child quite like you, words dont suffice for me to describe you.
You have a genuine goodness inside you, I watch you and wonder if I was ever like you.
Its me and you brother for life, so if you put me in the ground.
Look for me in the clouds, you make me definition of proud, taught me what this life is really about.
Faheem.

    General CommentThis is obviously about Ali's son, Faheem. It's an apology to Faheem for every bad thing, a celebration of everything good, but above all an ode to their father-son bond. It's pretty powerful, especially the line where he says he would give up his music for his son.
