Castle Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I built this castle
Now we are trapped on the throne
I'm sorry, we're alone
I wrote my chapter
You'll turn the page when I'm gone
I hope you'll sing along
This is your song
I just want you to know that I ain't scared
Whatever it takes to raise you
I'm prepared to do whatever, to do whatever (December first, nineteen ninety-five, Dear Hallie)
Verse 2
You'll be coming out of mommy's stomach soon
I better do something quick if I'ma be able to support you
I can barely support me but as long as you're healthy
That's all that matters for the time being but obviously
Assuming you will be, just thinking ahead
I'ma make it if it kills me, let's see how far I can take it with this music
I'm getting sick of chasing this illusion
I'm sorry for sloppy writing, the pen in my hand's shaking, please excuse me
Dad's a little nervous, but at the same time excited
If I use this same energy while I'm saying rhymes and write 'em
With the same passion and the same exact enthusiasm
As I'm using in this letter maybe they can fuel me as I'm
Trying to build these castles out of sand, baby girl
For you to sit on the throne, I got plans, baby girl
Welcome to mom and dad's crazy world
Love, daddy
Maple flavored kisses, buttered pancakes, and syrup
Verse 3
I built this castle
Now we are trapped on the throne
I'm sorry, we're alone
I wrote my chapter
You'll turn the page when I'm gone
I hope you'll sing along
This is your song
I just want you to know that I ain't scared
Whatever it takes to raise you
I'm prepared to do whatever, to do whatever (December first, nineteen ninety-six)
Verse 4
Dear Hallie
You got your momma's personality, same eyes as I got
Her beautiful smile
but you ears are the same size as mine are
Sorry for that, lil' minor mishap
But you'll grow into 'em baby
I'm on the grind now
I'm doing little shows, open mics, all-nighters at studios while I'm tryna keep the lights on
Why does it seem like I'm so close to this dream, yet so far
I just keep steering I'ma turn into someone
I haven't the slightest clue what I'ma do if it falls through
You took your first steps today, you'll probably walk soon
My infinite CD flock, too many soft tunes
They're talking bad about dad, it's ticking me off too
Makes me feel like I don't belong or something
Ooh, I think I might have just stumbled onto something new
Got a prediction for the future, I'm hoping it's you
Open this envelope when you're older and it holds true
Verse 5
I built this castle
Now we are trapped on the throne
I'm sorry, we're alone
I wrote my chapter
You'll turn the page when I'm gone
I hope you'll sing along
This is your song
I just want you to know that I ain't scared
Whatever it takes to raise you
I'm prepared to do whatever, to do whatever (December twenty-fourth, two thousand and seven)
Verse 6
Dear Hallie
Now if you found these letters, I guess I better try to explain
A lot's happened in between 'em since I rise to this fame
I said your name but always tried to hide your face
This game is crazy, I wanted to claim my love for you
but dang, I never knew it'd be like this
If I did I wouldn't have done it
You ain't asked for none of this shit, now you're being punished?
Things that should've been private with me and your mother is public
I can't stomach, they can take this fame back I don't want it
I'll put out this last album then I'm done with it
One hundred percent finished fed up with it, I'm hanging it up
Fuck it! Excuse the cursing, baby, but just know
That I'm a good person, though they portray me as cold
And if things should worsen, don't take this letter I wrote
As a goodbye note, but your dad's at the end of his rope
I'm sliding down a slippery slope
Anyways sweetie, I better go, I'm getting sleepy
Love dad
Shit, I don't know
