Lyric "Intro"

Hone rings

Grandpa: Princess, belated Valentine's day
Kehlani: Happy belated Valentine's day, what are you doing?
Grandpa: What am I doing? Where are you?
Kehlani: I'm in the studio
Grandpa: You're in the studio... New York?
Studio LA? Studio Atlanta? Studio here?
Kehlani: Studio in LA
Grandpa: In LA? Princess when do I get to see you?
You know you are my granddaughter
You are like my daughter. Come on now
Kehlani: I know
Grandpa: Don't [?] out to the curb
I know you're the star on top of stars and
Everybody every day has to remind me
Do you know who Kehlani is?
Do you know who your granddaughter is?
I know who she is and I know who she was

They say that God gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers
And what doesn't kill you makes you stronger
And as much as anyone can say how invincible
I seem or how fearless I am or how brave I must be
I'm still human
And I've seen things and I've felt more pain than some will
In their entire lives, all before the age of even being able
To buy a fucking drink at a bar
But I have to be strong, not for myself but for a greater purpose
Because I feel like my duty is far beyond me, you know?
Beyond saving my family
It's for the world because somebody out there really needs to hear this
So to anybody who isn't here to see how far I've gone
Or how far I've yet to go
To family members that didn't make it or friends I lost along the way
Or maybe someone I gave my heart to that didn't know what to do with it
You should be here
