    SonReal – Voicemail
     
    This might be the most personal song i've ever written. I have always had the upmost respect for women because of the way I was raised. This is the last song I recorded for ‘The Aaron LP’ and I couldn't be happier to share the video with you.

    I'm not perfect, I'm not perfect, I'm not even close
    I was raised by three women, kept me on my toes
    And my father left for months
    He had to get the dough
    Up north, surveying roads in the winter snow
    So as a young kid, I didn't see him much
    Getting raised by three women wasn't easy, but
    It helped me see the world with a proper vision
    Katie better at debating then Hillary Clinton
    And Amanda always making it harder to sneak out
    With my homies drinking beers, puffin’ on sativa
    And they always stuck beside me, supported the rapping
    But if I called a girl "bitch, " then they would bitch slap me
    Man, I love you two girls, made me into a man
    And now I'm blowin' up your phone every time that I can
    Like, "What you doing? When you gon' go come see your brother?"
    I'm sending love from LA, use this song as a letter
    Funny no matter how far, we always come together
    And now you girls grown up, lookin' brilliant as ever

    I was raised by women, give my praise to women
    So this song's dedicated to today's new women

    (Hi, son, this is your mama calling
    I haven't from you for a while
    And I was wondering what you guys have been up to over there
    Anyways, dear, I also wanted to tell you how much I love you
    And I am so very proud of you, sweetheart
    I can't wait to see you
    Okay, dear, talk soon)

    And to our mama, how you make it through all of this shit?
    We was too young to even understand what you did
    You define strong woman taught us to be strong
    So when it hit the fan, you acted like nothing was wrong
    Always instilled in your kids to follow our heart
    And if we stick together, we never falling apart
    I remember hearing wine glasses breaking down stairs
    You and daddy fighting, maybe a little impaired, but
    You were kids when you married
    And you were kids when you had us
    I'm so proud that you found my stepdad 'cause he happens
    To be someone in my life taught me more than my own did
    Mark, I never mention you in my songs, so I'ma own this
    You make my mom happy, never seen her so perfect
    Turning sixty this year, living the life that she's deserving

    I was raised by women, give my praise to women
    So this song's dedicated to today's new women

    (Hi, sweetie
    You know, I was just calling to remind you
    That you're very, very, very lucky to get married to me
    And, um, I hope that you think about that every day
    And also, I just wanted to say that I love you very much
    You are everything to me
    Love you, baby, bye)

    You my rock, yeah, you my sun
    Yeah, you my brightest light
    I could never picture me without you in my life
    My pen could never find the perfect words for me to write
    How I feel about a woman I chose for my wife
    And when my papa passed, I couldn't look you in the eye
    You had patience when I didn't and you gave me time
    Now I'ma give you everything that I have inside
    Got on one knee for one of five times I've seen you cry
    And I remember when I met you I was like
    "Do you like J. Cole?" you said, "Who's that?"
    I found that shit so funny, when I asked you what you listen to
    You replied Beyoncé and ended at that
    Ayy, and since that moment I knew what I wanted
    You taught me the power of being honest

    I was raised by women, give my praise to women
    So this song's dedicated to today's new women
