Verse 1
Would of woke an hour early
Start your car or shovel snow
Cause you blamed it on the winters
So that meant we had to go

Eleven hundred miles from grandma
Dad had left 5 years ago
We were happy in that Hillside house
Wasn’t much but it was home

Feared the trouble we’d get into
The streets were ours to roam
You were busy working 2 jobs
Leaving 2 boys home alone

But you wanted better for us
Hard to do it on your own
As a mother made a sacrifice
To us it was unknown


Chorus
That you were trying
You had a plan
Though it didn’t work
The way you wanted
Did the best you can
I was too young
To understand
A strong girl
In a cold world
Trying to help me become
A better man


Verse 2
Traded in those gang ran streets
For gated homes and swimming pools
20 minutes from my dads house
Picture perfect place to choose

But things were different down in FL
Onset worst of our issues
My depression hit a low point
And seems maybe yours did too

Cause the year after our first
You spent sitting in your room
Curtains closed, Lifetime reruns
Fridge only had bread and juice

Then the car had disappeared
I felt slowly so did you
Coming home to see the locks changed
Guess they’re taking the house too


Chorus
That you were trying
You had a plan
Though it didn’t work
the way you wanted
Did the best you can
I was too young
To understand
A strong girl
in a cold world
Trying to help me become
A better man


Verse 3
As we stood there waiting for my dad
To come and pick us up
I could see that you were deep in thought
Didn’t wait to interrupt

But my mind was filled with questions too
Was this all a cover up
Did you want him to take us away
Did you plan to give us up

Or did you plan for boys to be closer
To their dad to bring them up
Teach us what you thought a man should be
In a world that was cold enough

And I thank you for that big bold move
Now with eyes that are all grown up
Takes a man to see the sacrifice
You were looking out for us


Chorus (X2)
That you were trying
You had a plan
Though it didn’t work
the way you wanted
Did the best you can
I was too young
To understand
A strong girl
I’m a cold world
Trying to help me become
A better man
