Auburn - Growin Up Lyrics

See my girl sitting alone
went to ask her girl what's wrong
seen her starin at her phone
she said im havin problems at home
i said i know what your going through
she said no i dont think you do
'could tell she wanted me to go away
but something said no Auburn stay
i said just tell me what's on your mind
she said no i dont have the time
i said well can we at least pray
then she turned around to say....

-chorus- (Repeat x2)
growin up was real hard for me
watchin daddy beat mommy 'til she bleeds
i was young but i still stayed by her side
now i cry and i pray to god but i wonder why....


i said girl i had no clue
she said yea, well now you do
i watched her as she checked her hair
she said i gotta be some where
i said well where you headed to?
she said somewhere with this dude,
i met him at the club last night,
i dont really kno 'em but he seems right
i said well girl what is he like,
i dont think you should be alone
she said dont worry i dont trust no man,
i learned that from livin with my dad
i ain't my mom's i'll be just fine
im just tryna go an get mine
i looked at her like she bumped her head
then she turned around an said...

"growin up was real hard for me"

-cellphone rings-(talkin/singing)
(girl) hello

-hangs up-

-verse 3-
can't you see what's goin on
they tryna get you all alone
she said that's usually how it is,
you're treating me like iam a kid
i said girl you just turned 18,
about the same age as me
she said girl i dont need your help,
im doin fine all by myself
i said well dont get help from me
can we please get on our knee's
please before you go that way
can we please kneel down an pray

-praying-
father, we come to you whole heartedly
and i ask that you hear our pray
and you give her the heart and the mercy
to look past her father's mistakes
just as you have been mercyful to her all of these years
but i kno you see what she goes through
and i kno you've been tryna reach her
but god she was deaf'nd and blinded with hatred
but now she's here lord and we're ready to listen
she's ready to listen
Amen

your body is my temple
an your a precious jewel
dont let no one take that away
i kno just what you go through
cause every night i heard you
it's just you couldn't hear me
so dont worry bout your mother
or your little brothers
i took them just to ease their pain
but i love you just to use you
i see how he abused you
but all of that will change today

-chorus- (Repeat x2)[fades away]
growin up was real hard for me
watchin daddy beat mommy 'til she bleeds
i was young but i still stayed by her side
now i cry and i pray to god but i wonder why....
