Yeah, we gotta finish this off right, for mum and dad, being that place that I can turn to, yeah.
cause we all need somewhere, we all need somewhere to go, we all need somewhere to go home to.

I've never been rich and I've never been poor
which I guess made me appreciate everything more
For i've had a chance in a way to decide
to mix with people from all different situations in life
I saw the pros and cons and then rose beyond all the negatives of each side
the way I speak might be a blatant display of the way I was raised
but shit I'm proud of that and seeing as how i'm at this point
I wasn't raised up being refused
my parents made a choice and gave me freedom to chose my own way
in a way knowing mistakes that might come
and I think because of that I've learned to make the right ones too
now my youth in all truth was a hard time
knowing there's a place where you fit in that you can't find
half the time my mind felt so confident
I couldn't understand why half the time I felt the opposite
I just wanted to be somewhere in between in my head but instead I got the courage up to dream
because my parents had awareness and they taught me that your own belief is essential to reach your potential
in fact to think of all the love you've given me
and me rarely telling you how much it really means
I had to try and write a song so i could make it up
and I could tell you all those things that I don't say enough

now mum I gotta take a bit of time
cos I wanna say this right but I still gotta make it rhyme
you're way above any label I could give so ill just say it how it is, check it out
from the very first moment I was born
it's like I've had a mum that was devoted to me more than herself
and not just that phase when you're young
I'm talkin' from that age all the way to 21
I've been spoilt, and as hopeless as it is
I didn't really notice as a kid
but now I'm grown and I know every sacrifice you made so our home was our own little paradise to stay,
and later on working 60 hour weeks
and still coming home to cook so you could sit us down to eat
and through it all you never asked for any help
as if in some way you just expect it from yourself
so I just want you to know that I'm grateful
for everything you've done and for everything to come
you spent your life trying to illuminate my gloom
now i'll spend the rest of mine trying to do the same for you
you supported me in everything
I know that I can come and talk to you for anything and you'll understand
and man you gotta know that the man that I've become is pretty simply cos I got to have you as my mum

and dad, without you I woulda never made it through
cos i've emulated you since the tender age of 2, or maybe before
but basically all I'm trying to say is that it made me who I am today
it's you who taught me how to have pride back when I was young
so now I'm proud to have a dad like that
you stand up for what you think
that's why I do the same
now I've found a voice to try to make it change
you saw through all the bullshit
I've had my eyes open ever since
I don't believe it just because they call it evidence
I've seen the benefit of having a dad who's not afraid to be affectionate
through all the years that you've worked
just to provide for us and with every single dollar made you didn't get that holiday ‘til this year
shit its easy to tell the type of dad you've been cos that speaks for itself
growing up you'd always come to my sport and show your love and support
so just one thing before I finish I just want you to know that meant a lot
my childhood had everything that I could ever want (cause of you)
you gave me strength to be what I wanna be and see my life and what I wanted to achieve
so from here on out, whatever happens over time in my life
you got a son that knows he can always come back home and feel better.

cause we all need somewhere, we all need somewhere to go,
cause we all need somewhere, we all need somewhere to go.
