Omar Offendum - Mother's Day Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • My Fatherless growth...
  • could have easily meant loss of all hope
  • but mom was the rope
  • reeling me in when I couldn't float
  • For i'd have eloped with dope if she hadn't taught me to cope
  • opened up my scope of vision overcomin' the 'khawf' (fear)
  • 7izn imprisoned me though...livin' with images so
  • vivid...witnessin' his visage turn livid in turn did it's
  • part to turn this disenchanted heart rigid
  • 'imta 7ata3raf imtaaaa?'
  • (when oh when will you realize?)
  • My mother's plea steadily echoed in the back of my mind
  • Beggin' to see the same optimism of when I was 9...
  • Hard to believe that Omar curly's innocence may have died
  • but now she tells me with pride...that she sees him in my eyes
  • and I can only hope that one day I'll live up to the name
  • His humility and distaste for fortune and fame...
  • Holdin' me tight night after night saying "7abibi ma tinsa" (don't forget my love)
  • 'innee ba7ibbak inta'
  • (indeed I love you)
  • Verse 2:
  • Knee-deep in "ithm" (sin)
  • praying it won't reach my neck
  • Drowning in guilt...stilts needed to catch my breath
  • This "tawbah's" pathetic, but even still, I'm glad that I said it
  • 'Cause I ain't never been the type to do somethin' and regret it
  • But Karma's a _____
  • and this time, I gotta repent
  • "Ya rub-bee ighfirlee wa li-walidayyah" (Oh Lord forgive me & my parents)
  • now & again
  • succumbin' to sin
  • can happen to the strongest of men
  • then again
  • 'imta 7ata3raf imtaaaa?'
  • (when oh when will you realize?)
  • the Holy Qur'aan's
  • wisdom & enlightenment spawned
  • verses for persons on this earth in search of guidance along
  • with a sense of purpose with respect to what they're worshipping for
  • sheddin' the nervousness that surfaces when hit with a prob-
  • lamenting over it ain't soberin' if shoulderin' all
  • the blame of shameless misbehaving
  • When the aim of it all is to learn from mistakes
  • just make sure you're takin' it all
  • with a grain of salt - before the train of life comes to a halt
