Song Meaning
Verse 1
Rest in peace Wayne Bridges
You're still living through me
Listen!
Verse 2
Look, I lost my father to the bottle
I'd hug him everyday like I might not see him tomorrow
Got enough sorrow for a lifetime
'Cause when he was living I'm thinking how do I get him to listen
When he was seldom in his right mind
My early years I was too young to understand
But I remember the smell of beer and seeing all them empty cans
Waking up, crying in the night, hearing arguments
Hands off my momma, somehow knew he was the cause of it
Got a little older and he got a little worse
Drinking must be his remedy, he got a little cursed
Well, tell me what's the cure for a man who miss his pops
The beat goes on, but the drinking's gotta stop!
Verse 3
If I had have known I wouldn't see you tomorrow
I would've grabbed a hold of your heart, and put your love in a bottle, hey
But now you got me drunk off that pain, gone off that sorrow
Wishing every day you were here with me
But now that you're gone, I lost my heart to the bottle, to the bottle
Verse 4
Yeah, I lost my father to the bottle
Functioning alcoholic's what they call it far as I know
Became a teenager and started to understand
But even through drinks he still taught me to be a man
So before the hospital, where the paramedics rushed him
Any and everybody who met him, instantly loved him
Ironic how conjure would have made him even sicker
'Cause who gon' tell him he can't drink none of his son's liquor
And tell me without my father how am I supposed to manage?
He had the biggest heart, but also had that liver damage
Tell me what's the cure for a man who miss his paps
The beat goes on, but the drinking' gotta stop!
Verse 5
If I had have known I wouldn't see you tomorrow
I would've grabbed a hold of your heart, and put your love in a bottle, hey
But now you got me drunk off that pain, gone off that sorrow
Wishing every day you were here with me
But now that you're gone, I lost my heart to the bottle, to the bottle
Verse 6
Not a day goes by that I don't miss you, and don't wish you were here with me
No matter what you did, I forgive you!
Verse 7
I lost my father to the bottle
Tell your parents you love 'em
You might not see 'em tomorrow!
I swallow my pride, try to put my problems aside
But I feel so hollow inside
Gotta keep my eyes on the prize
'Cause I'm steady wishing you were here
To see the goals that I plan to reach
You left the day after I put you in my Grammy speech
It's almost like you waited just to see me win
Well, pops I can't wait until the day we meet!
Verse 8
If I had have known I wouldn't see you tomorrow
I would've grabbed a hold of your heart, and put your love in a bottle, hey
But now you got me drunk off that pain, gone off that sorrow
Wishing every day you were here with me
But now that you're gone, I lost my heart to the bottle, to the bottle
Verse 9
Can't get over you you you, hey
Love in a bottle, hey hey
Oh, we miss you!
(I wanna see you tomorrow)
I wanna see you again
(I wanna see you tomorrow)
I wanna see you tomorrow
I miss you, you you you you
Oh I love you, you you you
