Dear Theodosia (Reprise) Lyrics

Chance The Rapper – Dear Theodosia (Reprise) Lyrics

Dear Theodosia, what to say to you?
You have my eyes, you have your mother’s name
When you came into the world, you cried and it broke my heart

I’m dedicating every day to you
Domestic life was never quite my style
But when you smile
You knock me out, I fall apart
And I thought I was so smart

You will come of age with our young nation
We’ll bleed and fight for you, I'll make it right for you
If we lay a strong enough foundation
We’ll pass it on to you, I’ll give the world to you

And you’ll blow us all away
Someday, someday
Yeah, you’ll blow us all away

Ooh Philip, when you smile I am undone, my son
Look at my son, pride is not the word I’m looking for
There is so much more inside me now

Ooh Philip, you outshine the morning sun, my son
And when you smile, I fall apart
And I thought I was so smart

My father wasn’t around
My father wasn’t around
I swear that I’ll be around for you
I’ll do whatever it takes
I’ll make a million mistakes
I’ll make the world safe and sound for you

Ooh, ooh
We’ll bleed and fight for you
We’ll make it right for you

(Whatever it takes) if we lay a strong enough foundation
(Some day) we’ll pass it on to you
(The world safe and sound) we’ll give the world to you
And you’ll blow us all away

Someday (someday, someday)
Someday (the world safe and sound)

(I'll make the world safe and sound) yeah you'll blow us all away

Someday (someday)
Someday (someday)

The world safe and sound for you
Someday

You will know you're strong enough foundation
One day
Someday
