(Can I) Hold You Near

about

When I first met my wife 10 years ago, I wrote a song called Pretty Mama and gave it to her as a way to grab her attention. This is an updated version of that song after 10 years, raising 3 kids, and all the ups and down that comes along with the experience. The universe blessed me with a true queen who I will be eternally grateful for even when I'm not doing my best at showing it. I love you, Ruth.

lyrics

hey pretty mama, my lady,
the center of my life, it's crazy,
fell in love really fast and made babies,
a decade later, weight bearing down lately,
I know you feel it mama cause I feel it, too,
I try my best, know it's not enough for you,
and not me and not them,
still a starving artist with my pad and my pen,
regret a lot of things but not one of them is You,
been giving my all but still got no clue,
I apologize, I'll wipe your eyes,
from now til forever this is me with no surprise,
I try to maintain, but I fail...
you feel neglected, I'm lost on the trail,
try to find my way back but fear it's too late,
I'll hate myself forever if that is my fate,
fell in love at first sight, some things never change,
but then I dug myself in a hole and became a source of rage...
and your pain...
and I'm sorry...
but I can't take the past away.

chorus:

hey pretty mama won't you walk over here,
can I please whisper in your ear?
you're so beautiful, your eyes they make it clear,
I just want to ask can I hold you near?

pour it out with this ink cause it's all i know,
take it back to the day I hooked you with my flow,
you say we've lost touch, I don't feel the same,
try to make it better I'm all about the change,
climbing high up the ladder, got your back on the way,
catch you when you fall, I will always save the day,
to the best of my ability, You see the real in me,
and whip me into shape, make me improve agility,
strive to find a balance so we are never enemies,
you are the absolute closest friend to me,
the only thing I got in this life we've built gradually,
...oh so gradually,
and we don't have much but we've always had enough,
as long as I've got you, I've got the right stuff,
and that's real, so I kneel,
and promise my all through forever love you still.

chorus:

hey pretty mama won't you walk over here,
can I please whisper in your ear?
you're so beautiful, your eyes they make it clear,
I just want to ask can I hold you near?
