Jumped out the bed
We grabbed both his legs
Me and my brother
Not knowing the pain he gave my mother
Night after night, fighting yelling at each other
When Nas and his brother realized that their father was threatening to leave they would jump out of their bed and go hold his legs to convince him to stay. Little did they know that his father was cheating on his mother so they didn’t know the pain his father caused his mother.
