Jonylah Forever Lyrics Lupe Fiasco

[Intro]
You live

[Verse 1]
How bout them bullets ain't slow you up
You really didn't die and we watched you grow up
At twelve months you took ya first steps
Awkwardly across the kitchen floor to your best
Your first breaths that we can call words
In ya fathers lap on November 23rd
They were "live for me" and he did for you
Flipped to neutron and stayed inside the crib for you
And this commitment from ya father imparted a deep senese of value you forever harbor
And we were all so pround as we seen you gettin' smarter
And bond grow deeper between a mother and a daughter you were not a martyr

[Verse 2]
At six you started reading books
At seven you knew how a brain looked
And could roughly describe the different regions
Could tell when somebody was sick and even knew the reason
The world wasn't at peace
Gunfire every weekend
But you were hardly there
Cuz y'all was always leaving
Field museum planetarium aquarium
You saw something special in that tank you were starin' in
And those moments as a little girl you realized it was bigger world
Bigger than southside
Bigger than chicago
And you were bigger but still wanted on rims on ya car though
And big ass woofers in ya car door
So you could wang like ya daddy at the park eating sharks
Went to King where you were teased for being smart
Where you bumped into Hadiya coming back to teach art.

[Verse 3]
At sixteen is when you got you scholarship
At twenty-two is when you got ya doctorate
Even now it's hard to believe
But ya father taught you work hard and achieve
And you complied
Accepted by every medical school you applied
But the coolest thing is when they offered you that high paying slot you replied
The need me in the hood and that's where you reside
Free clinic, nobody denied
And that's where you heard the shots and quickly ran outside
And saw a man and van and a bleeding baby in his hands
Fading fast but you knew she could survive
Did everything you could to try and keep this girl alive
Stabilized until the ambulance arrived
In that moment where you gave your help, bet you didn't even know that you saved yourself

[Outro]
You live, forever
Lord have mercy
