[Lyrics:]


[Intro: Ghostface Killah]
Yeah, ohh yeah, this one goes out
to all the families that went through the struggle,
yeah, from the heart,
It was all from the heart, everything was real

[Mary J. Blige]
All that I got is you
And I'm so thankful I made it through

[Ghostface Killah]
Yo, dwelling in the past, flashbacks when I was young
Who ever thought that I would have a baby girl and 3 sons
I'm going through this difficult stage I find it hard
To believe why my old earth had so many seeds
But she's an old woman and due to me I respect that
I saw life for what its really worth and took a step back
Family ain't family no more, we used to play ball
Eggs after school, eat gritz cause we was poor
Grab the plirs for the channel, fix the hanger on the TV
Rockin each others pants to school wasn't easy
We survived winters snotty nosed with no coats
We kept it real but the older brother still had jokes
Sadly daddy left me at the age of six
I didn't know notin' but mommy neatly packed his shit
She cried, and grandma held the family down
I guess mommy wasn't strong enough, she just went down
Check it, 15 of us in a three bedroom apartment
Roaches everywhere cousins and aunts were there.
4 in the bed, 2 at the foot, 2 at the head
I didn't like to sleep with jon-jon he peed the bed
Seven o'clock, pluckin roaches out the cereal box
We shared the same spoon, watchin saturday cartoons
Sugar water was our thing, everymeal was no thrill
In the summer free lunch held us down like steel
And there was days I had to go to Tex house with a note
Stating "Gloria can I borrow some food I'm dead broke"
So embarrasin I couldn't stand to knock on the door
My friends might be laughin, I spent stamps in stores
Mommy wheres the toilet paper, use the newspaper
Look Ms. Rose gave us a couch, she's the neighbor
Things was deep, my whole youth was sharper than cleats
2 brothers with muscular dystrophy, it killed me
But I remember this mom's would lick her finger tips
To wipe the cold out of my eye before school wit her spit
Case worker had her runnin back for face to face
I caught a case, housin tried to throw us out of our place
Sometimes I look up at the stars and analyze the sky
And ask myself, was I meant to be here, why?
Yeah, yo

[Chorus (4x): Mary J. Blige]
All that I got is you
And I'm so thankful I made it through

[Ghostface Killah]
Word up mommy, I love you
Word up
It was all you, word, you brought me in like this

[Mary J. Blige]
I sit and think about
All the times we did without rain
I always said I woudn't cry
When I saw tears in your eyes
I understand that daddy's not here now
But some way or somehow, I will always be around, yeah
All things that I did from this to them
Oh from drugs to being there
Being down and out and I love you always
