RiGoletto Rockwell | Be What I Couldn't Be [Prod. By M.W.P.]

Description

This song was hard to write since it's speaking directly to something I went through when I was 17. I was mad at women for a LONG time after this situation I faced. I had a girl who cheated on me then said she was pregnant but I never knew if the kid was mine or not. Either way, that's my past. I get confused when women pin babies on men who they KNOW aren't the father. That's a bitch move in my book. Life is precious, don't bring a new one if you aren't capable of handling yours. This is off my upcoming project "Welcome To Rockport" produced by M.W.P. Thanks for watching. Share the video.

You had to go, cus I was used to me/ Damn, ain't it sad when love turns cold? /.... You ain't even have a chance... cold/ Verse: Hey son, how are you? / I saw you in a dream, a time or two/ I thought we could talk, about you/... The things you say & the ways you move/ I want you to be strong, but sweet/ I want you admired, not from the street/ I want you to be me, but in 2.0/ Ignore what your peers say so/ You'll have a chance to win/ Like I did, like a person with hope & excellent timing/ I bartered for my path/ I chartered a jet for the skyline/ But I ain't left yet/ Too scared to admit that I'm unfit for this length/ Or this limp/ Buy a gift/ I forget/ we forget, we forgot/... But I remember what you're not/ That's why I'm mad at these hoes when they let the baby drop/ How could you do it so easy? / I'm tellin' the truth, you don't believe me? / Break: Yo I wonder man, what you would be like... I look in the eyes of my dog & I see a human, I wonder if it's my second chance with you... hmm... Hook: Be what I couldn't be/ Be what I couldn't be/ I'm alive but for what I did I shouldn't be/ Be what I couldn't be/ Be what I couldn't be/... You had to go, cus I was used to me/ Damn, ain't it sad when love turns cold? /.... You ain't even have a chance... cold/ Verse II: I'm tellin' it like it is cus ain't no other way to tell it/ I'm full of shit though, can you smell it? / I lied, just to avoid the label of "bitch"/ Fatherless, cus of that I couldn't father him/ I retreated to the same shit/ That made me hate him/ But hate then, is ill applied when my name's in/ She asked me was I sure, I said sure/ She went alone I was out of town actin impure/ How was I to handle it I was just 17/ But that ain't stop me from pokin' the seven seas/ Come to find out she aint have my seed/ Now what am I to think?/ Hook: Be what I couldn't be/ Be what I couldn't be/ I'm alive but for what I did I shouldn't be/ Be what I couldn't be/ Be what I couldn't be/... You had to go, cus I was used to me/ Damn, ain't it sad when love turns cold? /.... You ain't even have a chance... cold/ - Rockwell
