Faith Evans & The Notorious B.I.G. – One In The Same (The King & I Album)

Why did you go?

[Hook]
No spouse in the house, so she rolls herself
No-way
And I’m never let ’em forget you

Nigga I don’t sweat the date, my moms is late
To carry on the name
And I’m never let ’em forget you
But a child just don’t understand
Duh nuh, duh nuh
One in the same
Ohh
[Outro]
I know you’re lookin’ down
And it’s a damn shame

Never got to know you, but he’s so much like you
You gave the gift of motherhood
So glad you came
So I had to plan my escape, out the skins

(Luckily she made it, must have been right on time. Through his grace, everything was fine)
Uh, then came the worst date, May, 21st
Duh nuh, duh nuh
I know you’re lookin’ down

Every single day, I’m blessed to look into his eyes
[Verse 1: Notorious B.I.G.]
To the hospital, to see if she could get a little help
Why you’re not here today
You’re forever in our hearts
I try my best to explain
[Verse 3: Notorious B.I.G. + Faith Evans]
And I raised him up, the best I could
And I can’t help but see no-one, but you
(Heart-racing, and God only knows what was on her mind)
Ten months in this gut, what the fuck
And it’s a damn shame
New York, New York ready for the likes of this
1970 somethin’
[Hook]
Ohh
So glad you came
I try my best to explain
I know that you’re lookin’ down, and you’re so proud
The doctor looked and said "He’s gonna be a Bad Boy."
But a child just don’t understand
No-way
I know that you’re lookin’ down, and you’re so proud
I can see your smile
You left a special part of you, with me
Tanqueray or Hennessy until I called Earl
I wish moms would hurry up so I could get buck
Why did you go?
I’m seein’ my death, and I ain’t even took my first step
Why you’re not here today
I can see your smile
In this world, the fly girl
I made it out, I’m bringin’ mad joy
Umbilical chord’s wraped around my neck
[Verse 2: Faith Evans]
One in the same
To carry on the name
You left a special part of you, with me
[Pre-Hook]
2:19 is when my mama’s water burst
You’re forever in their hearts
While, Juvenile rippin’ mics and shit
