Never Abandon Your Family

Kanye West

Two lessons that he passed along to his children
The first is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
The second was that, no matter what, you love unconditionally
It is that kind of love that made my father the kind of father and the kind of man he is
He vowed that he would never walk away from his family, and he never has

You know why my spirit's callin'
Darkness can't take light from me
Haven't you gone far enough?
Sacrificed the ones you love
Gave up on your sanity
Like some twisted fantasy
What would I say to everything?
Your actions cost everything

My, my, my family
My family, I'm losing my family
I'm losing my family
Losing my family

Cried out to you in my sleep, you thought it was a dream
Why won't you answer me? I'm in the room
Tell mom you're sorry, she's screaming at me
Daddy, how could you leave? Daddy, how could you leave?
Come back tonight, daddy, please, come back tonight, daddy, please
Daddy, how could you leave? Daddy, how could you leave?
She don't know what this means, How'd you become so mean?
I wish I never screamed, alcohol when you breathe
These things, these things, these things, these things, they sting
Daddy, promise you'll stay, don't you love me? Love me

Two lessons that he passed along to his children
The first -is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
It is that kind of love that made my father the kind of father and the kind of man he is
He vowed that he would never walk away from his family, and he never has
