​Didn't Give A Damn

This song is by Houston and appears on the album It's Already Written (2004).

Yeah, It's all good, I'm doing better without you (no)
Anyway, But its funny, we look just alike (just like you)

(1st Verse)
Everyday that I look in the mirror
A reflection of someone I don't remember
But I heard that he was something special
To someone that I hold so dear to me (momma)
(She said he was a singer) Oh he could sing yeah
But he used it to abuse a lot of women
Now your seed was a he and that seed is now me
And I love my son (forever) and my son loves me (me)
And I know that its painful but I wish you could see

That a man is what I am, Tho you didn't give a damn
When you left her on her own to raise me all alone
Its hard for me to hate ya when she says that I'm just like ya
So I'm praying everyday that God will change my ways
Cause a man is what I am, Tho you didn't give a damn
When you left her on her own to raise me all alone
Its hard for me to hate ya when she says that I'm just like ya
So I'm praying everyday that God will change my ways

Was never there for me (no no)
How could you betray me
Broke up the family tree
What about me
What about me

(2nd Verse)
Now I hear that you wanna see me
But I can't let it go not that easy
See a man only knows what he feels
And I feel that I can't trust you
Keep it real, I don't need you
And I can't think that you would think I would ever be like you
Cause its sad that you're my dad
And I don't know you
Even when I see you
And to my son, I could never leave you

That a man is what I am, Tho you didn't give a damn
When you left her on her own to raise me all alone
Its hard for me to hate ya when she says that I'm just like ya
So I'm praying everyday that God will change my ways
Cause a man is what I am, Tho you didn't give a damn
When you left her on her own to raise me all alone
Its hard for me to hate ya when she says that I'm just like ya
So I'm praying everyday that God will change my ways

(Breakdown)
You was never there
Probably didn't care
That you had a son
While you on the run
Never thought that twice of being in my life
Cause you broke a happy home
Why you leaving us alone
Never gave a damn to find out who I am
Its to late for you to communicate
You was never there
Probably didn't care
That you had a son
While you on the run

That a man is what I am, Tho you didn't give a damn
When you left her on her own to raise me on her all alone
Its hard for me to hate ya when she says that I'm just like ya
So I'm praying everyday that God will change my ways
Cause a man is what I am, Tho you didn't give a damn
When you left her on her own to raise me on her all alone
Its hard for me to hate ya when she says that I'm just like ya
So I'm praying everyday that God will change my ways

Don't make me, don't make me, don't make me
Turn out like him
Oh, never gonna be like you
Never gonna walk, talk like you no
