Akon – Letter to My Son Lyrics

Letter to My Sont By Akon

I had to do bad, so you can do better
I was locked in a pin when I wrote you this letter
But you was way too young, don’t understand no evil and no better
It’s time that I tell you who I am, so I can protect you

‘Cause a bad role model it’s something I can’t afford to be (To you)
‘Cause only me and God knows what I did just here

I steal for you, I deal for you
That’s what I did for you
To get a meal for you
Nearly died for you
[?] the time for you
I survived for you
To provide for you
All this for you
Did this for you
All that I do
I do for you

So you don’t have to…
So you don’t have to…
So you don’t have to…
So you don’t have to…

Made a couple trips home
Had a couple bricks on
And thought [?] on it
Can’t let ’em make a victim of me
Grace my light for you
God and blue lights for you
Working overnight for you
So you’re growing up to be just like me

A bad role model it’s something I can’t afford to be (To you)
Only me and God knows what I did just here

I steal for you, I deal for you
That’s what I did for you
To get a meal for you
Nearly died for you
Did the time for you
I survived for you
To provide for you
All this for you
Did this for you
All that I do
I do for you

So you don’t have to…
So you don’t have to…
So you don’t have to…
So you don’t have to…

[?] so you don’t have to
[?] also that you never have to
[?] so you don’t have to
[?] also that you never have to
[?] so you don’t have to
[?] also that you never have to

I steal for you, I deal for you
That’s what I did for you
To get a meal for you
Nearly died for you
Did the time for you
I survived for you
To provide for you
All this for you
Did this for you
All that I do
I do for you
