"Never Forget You" as written by Wasalu Jaco, John Stephens, Jerry Duplessis, Reginald D. Perry and Altino Arden....
Take me to that old familiar place
Take me to memories we won't erase
Take me to all that we had
Good and the bad

I'll never forget you
I'll never let you go
I'll never forget you
I'll always remember, I hope you know

Let the record reflect the records we set
Best foot forward with every step
And let's push towards it, never regress
And let's remember, if ever we get
Down, the places that we came from 'round
And all the good times on the bad side of town
The upside of bad, flip it upside down
Came from the bottom but we up high now
Believe, and from this view we achieved
We looked back at the rules we received
And how we broke those, dismantled and rewrote those
And the ghost still alive in the photos
Sounds of the summer, day and go wise
Cold wind blowin' through a city on fire
Moments of the past, came here to find you
Not to relive them, just to remind you

Take me to that old familiar place
Take me to memories we won't erase
Take me to all that we had
Good and the bad

I'll never forget you
I'll never let you go
I'll never forget you
I'll always remember, I hope you know
(yeah yeah yeah yeah)

And let the evidence show, the future's so bright
It's never been more, not like tonight
We walk into the glow, right into the light
The past all around us, the time of our life
The first love kisses, the broke heart disses
This is just like a first-class ticket
Back, to the first written rap
The crumbled-up paper and the pen with no cap
The hand-me-down clothes and the unturned hat
The hookers on the corner and the kids sellin' crack
The needles in the yard where we used to play catch
Stories from the project we could never go at
Or to, these are shades of my youth
Trials of a child, everything truth
Moments of the past, comin' back to find us
Not to relive them, just to remind us

Take to that old familiar place
Take me to memories we won't erase
Take me to all that we had
Good and the bad

I'll never forget you
I'll never let you go
I'll never forget you
I'll always remember, I hope you know
(yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Everything cherished, remembered in my heart
So you will never perish, you will never part
I tell 'em all about you, drummin' in the park
We put you in the ground, but I see you in the stars
Gon', take a bow, a round of applause
The best that ever, always ready we are
Love always shines, that's how I'll find you
In case you forgot, I hope this reminds you now

Take to that old familiar place
Take me to memories we won't erase
Take me to all that we had
Good and the bad

I'll never forget you
I'll never let you go
I'll never forget you
I'll always remember, I hope you know
(yeah yeah yeah yeah)

    Song MeaningI think this song is about Lupe's father who died when Lupe was just a boy. He will never forget him and he will always keep him with him

    General CommentThis songs main focus, in my opinion, is on how we can always overcome obstacles even if we are at a disadvantage. We can use our past experiences to help us achieve our goals, and when we do achieve, we can't forget where we came from and who helped us reach them.

    Lupe has a tribute to his father at the end of the song because his dad was an African drummer. Although he has passed, he will never forget him.

    Lyric CorrectionLyric correction-
    I believe the refrain is:

    Take me to that old familiar place
    Take me to memories we won't erase
    Take me to all that we had
    *Good and the bad,*
