This is for everyone that's lost anyone close in their lives.

Dedicated to Patrick M. Reames

Please rate/review, and most of all, enjoy. :)

They say that things just can not grow
beneath the winter snow
or so I have been told
They say we're burried far
just like a distant star
I simply can not hold

*Verse 1*
It's been real hard since I've seen you last
I don't have to say this but I love you dad
I know you never liked my rap
I couldn't blame you from what you heard in the past
what I wouldn't give for you to see me now
to see that smile one last time
one more hug for your burly bugs
he's all grown up with his career and such
but without you this money doesn't mean much

*Verse 2*
I could only hope to achieve what you wrote
from the 53 years you spent here
I might be following dreams but my path isn't clear
I'm shoveling snow trying to uncover my soul
and all the pieces that broke apart
in the cold that stole my heart
it's been so long since I've seen it whole
and everytime the wind blows
it keeps on telling me I can't grow
I won't take this as an option
I made it this far, but I still got a long way to go
I try not to make the same mistakes you made down your road
this slippery slope has me losing control
I spend half my energy just trying to cope
with the fact that you're gone
I try to hold on through these memories and songs
but sometimes it's just not enough to keep me strong
it's just not enough to keep me strong

*Verse 3*
The day you died I just stayed inside
sat and cried and gave god a big piece of my mind
Even if he had told me why I wouldn't of believed it
it wasn't for a while I realized everything happens for a reason
little did I know it didn't matter the season
the beauty was right there in front of my eyes
staring at the snow had me too blind to see it

I love you pa
things will never be the same without you
Don't worry about me and nicki though
We'll stay strong for you

just do this one thing for me
Don't rest in piece
go out and enjoy that second life

This song is amazing. I want to share it... but how? Can you post this song on youtube?
Or is it possible to make a video whit this song?
so...Nice work :)

Very touching, excellent piece.

I was feeling in a winter mood with the snow on the ground around here, and browse songs relating to winter. And I stumbled upon this piece. This is a wonderful piece of music, lyrically and instrumentally. I'm not sure I could offer anything to improve this, its just that good as is. But anyways, it was a very good listen, and I will download it and reflect upon it further. Keep it up Burly, and I'm sorry for your loss, times can be hard, but even good can come out of it.

wow bro

lifes hard

-Nuff sed

Excelent song

I was listening to those songs hip hop so when I gave faces with this super composition.

I admit, that it is the best music hip hop that already have listened to here, there is no doubt, those letters are completely inspired and very emotional, I liked that singerĀ“s voice of chorus, and everything in this music is wonderful, its contains a big feeling. Great work, haha...

A gem.

'nuff said. This song proves that NG isn't just about techno. There's beats just as beautiful, if not more so.

This song is full of emotion. The vocals are well done, lyrics are marvelous, and the outro is the best there is. Stay fresh!

Burly responds:

Thanks man! I've been meaning to come back in a big way. Words like these help a lot. :)
