Message from a friend

This is a free fall
Time for an all call
Put out an APB
For all my homies

This is the last time
Maybe my last crime
Iam gone for good
Just wish i could
See you all again
You know you are truly friends
But will you remember me
Once I am gone from the scene

These are the streets ive walked since child hood
These are the people I only wish I could
Give a helping hand to
But theres only so much one man can do
I am truly sorry
Just know ive tried
Working two jobs
Hustling while I could
Standing in the rain
Hopping busses cross town
Waiting for a chance I can lay my burdens down
An honest living is truly a lie
Theres nothing honest about wishing to die
But I convince my self if I try a little harder
Maybe my daughter will become something great

She plays with her dolls
Pretending they're doctors
Ignoring the bruises on her mothers face
If only I could change
Go back and stop the clock
I could have saved her from life on this block
But its too late now I see it in her eyes
She's starting to abandon those fairy tale lies
She questions my reasons
She wants to understand
She cries when I tell her
Daddy's not a good man

I've done some bad things and I know I wont repent
But I dress her for school with every penny I've spent
She is my pride and joy
I'd buy her any toy
And thing she could dream of
That I could comprehend
This is my angel please watch over her
Look out for my family
If you're truly my friends

This is a free fall
Time for an all call
Put out an APB
For all my homies

This is the last time
Maybe my last crime
Iam gone for good
Just wish i could
See you all again
You know you are truly friends
But will you remember me
Once I am gone from the scene

This is my wife
Not my girl or my bitch
but the woman I stuck with
No matter how hard or thick
The lies have strained our relationship but she knows
That I love her with all my heart
And I cant stand to be apart
But to protect her I'd do anything

I gave her a diamond ring
And promised to love forever
So whatever happens she's there
I just fear for her life
Don't want to bring her no strife
Just a house in the country
Where its safe and secure
No more gunfights or street battles
No drive byes or bombs
No more bleeding stab wounds
Nothing but the love we share
And the hope we'll make it here
No matter how hard the fight
She knows I'm with her at night

Our future is secure
But I fear every time she walks out the door
That she's never coming back
That she'll leave for good
She'll prove her mother true
But baby please believe
I'll do anything for you

Mother dearest I know that I've done wrong
But you have to believe I'll make it on my own
I love you for taking care of me as a kid
Although I know I shouldn't have done the things that I did
You stood beside me and never let me go
You taught me all the right things that I should know
Yet I didn't listen you always said I am hard headed

But you got to give me credit
I've got this far alone
And now I am back with you
This may be the last time
So bring you flowers now
And every time you see them think of me and remeber this vow
I promise to honor you in every way I know how
I will listen and keep you in my heart
No matter the circumstances

The only chances I have
Is the faith in my family
To learn from my example
Learn from my mistakes
Don't take the steps I've taken
Don't heighten the stakes
This is from your last son
The first two are gone
I don't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry I went wrong

I'm telling you all this
From behind metal bars
My friends my family
I did steal those cars
I sold drugs
I pimped
I murdered many a man
But those aren't the things
That got me where I am
When and if I get out
I promise you this night
Ill kill the dirty bastard
Who bust my left tail light
