Lyrics
When I look back over the years at the things
That bring tears to my eyes
Poppa said we had to be wise to live long lives
Now I recognize what my father said before he died
Vocalized things I left unsaid
Left my spirit unfed for too long
I'm coming home to my family where I can be strong
For you I plan to be
Within me, my ancestry, giving me continuity, huh

This is what my daddy told me
I wish he would hold me a little more than he did
But he taught me my culture
And how to live positive
I never want to shame the blood in my veins
And bring pain to my sweet grandfather's face
In his resting place
I'll make haste to learn and not waste
Everything my forefathers earned in tears
For my culture

Fall back again
Crawl from the warm waters (for my culture)
Water to air
You're on your feet again
Your feet again

Hello Dad, remember me
I'm the man you'd thought I'd never be
I'm the boy who you reduced to tears
Dad, I've been lonely for twenty seven years
Yeah, that's right, my name's Rob
I'm the one who landed the pop star's job
I'm the one who you told look don't touch
I'm the kid who wouldn't amount to much
I believe in the senses sight and sound
I have always been too loud
Won't you help me drown it out
I'm what I feel, what I'm feeling is surreal
I'm a mass of spinning wheels
Always digging in my heels
Now I've got the faith to

Fall back again
Crawl from the warm waters
Water to air
You're on your feet again
Your feet again

Huh, this is what my daddy told me
I wish he would hold me a little more than he did
But he taught me my culture
And how to live positive
I never want to shame the blood in my veins
And bring pain to my sweet grandfather's face
In his resting place
I'll make haste to learn and not waste
Everything my forefathers earned in tears
For my culture

Fall back again
Crawl from the warm waters
Water to air
You're on your feet again
Your feet again
(For my culture)

Fall back again
Crawl from the warm waters
Water to air
You're on your feet again
Your feet again
(For my culture)
