Memories of the winter,
Memories of my mother,
Memories of my sister.
Uncle's telling me you're only 18 once,
Granddad said he's seen my dad spend all his money and run,
And if I was his son I know he'd tell me to save,
Save your penny's now and you'll make money one of these days.
Don't be lead a stray and escape from gap year living,
He's almost 80 and retired said he's sat there winning,
Ch-ching, what what, 'cos you made your first million,
Had a couple children,
Why you acting like a villain?
Like you see my vision,
'Cos you watch endless television,
Don't believe television
You're narrow minded, never listen.
Now just envision a life
With no money, grand-kids or even a wife,
Without all of these things man I see a divide,
Will my money grabbing family ever subside?
Is a conversation a father and son would've had
I listened attentively and looked him like he was my dad,
Like he was the one who taught me everything I've ever known
Like he told me never borrow money just make your own,
The past 4 years my uncles played more of a role,
Made sure I was never alone he would guide me all the way
He was a season ticket holder he would take me to the games
Taught me to zip my jacket up when its cold and it rains
14 going on 15 I needed some guidance
Mum was suffering with depression so I suffered in silence,
Fast forward 1 year and we were further enlightened
Step father cheated,
He was deceitful,
Needed a beating.,
No reason needed,
For him to go have an affair,
He obviously never cared,
And I held a grudge for too long.
Now its time I move on
