Letters to fathers
By AirwalkerX

I don't write this to you because I have hate in my heart,
But I want you to know what you broke apart,
The love we shared,
Try to compare to any other fool that call's himself a man,

I heard about the men who she brought home to you,
And what you do? You hated them too

Chorus:
So whatcha gonna do?
When your babygirl comes home,
With bruises on her arms,
Black eyes, and tears in her face?

Will you stand up and wipe the tears off her face,
Make a place,
Or will you push her out the door,
Back to the man who pushed her on the floor,

Dear Father,
You told her to let me go,
Never date a man from my race,
You told her the men with the dark skin were bad,

So Sad,
Your very wrong,
So I write this letter, this song to tell you in proper English,
I am a man, just like you,
Maybe even more so than you,

I am a knight like Lancelot,
Fighting for the queen I love a lot,
But when the king tells me,
That I am not to be with his princess child,
As a knight I stand aside,
Abide by the Lord of the Manor's rule,
Even though the Lord's a fool,
Let me ask you this question dear father,
One last query, here we go...

Chorus:
So whatcha gonna do?
When your babygirl comes home,
With bruises on her arms,
Black eyes, and tears in her face?

Will you stand up and wipe the tears off her face,
Make a place,
Or will you push her out the door,
Back to the man who pushed her on the floor,

Because I'll tell you what...
If I heard she was in pain...
This pride would be swallowed,
Your words won't mean shit,

I spit on every order you give me,
My heart knows she needs me,
I'd never ever hurt your babygirl
She's my lover,
My Friend,
My life,
My sun,
My rain,
My paradise,
But your making her a sweet taboo,

So what I say to you, dear father,
You want us to part,
I understand, but heed my words,
This love, nothing can stop it,
Because love is stronger than pride,
Love is stronger than hate,
Hell, love kicks it's ass,

Because unlike hate, love is divine,
And so is mine, just that I'm of another color,
JUST GET OVER IT!!!
