Dear Theodosia (Reprise)

This song is by Chance the Rapper and Francis and the Lights and appears on the compilation The Hamilton Mixtape (2016).

Dear Theodosia, what to say to you
You have my eyes
You have your mother's name
When you came into the world
You cried and it broke my heart

I'm dedicating every day to you
Domestic life was never quite my style
But when you smile
You knock me out, I fall apart
And I thought I was so smart

You will come of age with our young nation
We'll bleed and fight for you
I'll make it right for you
If we lay a strong enough foundation
We'll pass it on to you
I'll give the world to you

And you'll blow us all away
Someday, someday
Yeah, you'll blow us all away

Ooh Philip, when you smile, I am undone, my son
Look at my son
Pride is not the word I'm looking for
There's so much more inside me now

Ooh Philip, you outshine the morning sun, my son
And when you smile
I fall apart
And I thought I was so smart

My father wasn't around
(My father wasn't around)
I swear that I'll be around for you
I'll do whatever it takes
(I'll make a million mistakes)
I'll make the world safe and sound for you

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Fight for you
We'll make it right for you
(Whatever it takes)
We'll lay a strong enough foundation
(Ooh-ooh)
We'll pass it on to you
(So we'll make the world safe and sound for you)
We'll give the world to you
(Someday, someday)
And you'll blow us all away
(Someday, someday)
Oh yeah
Someday

(Oh, safe and sound)
Yeah, you'll blow us all away
(Oh, we'll make the world safe and sound for you)
Someday
(Someday) Someday
(Someday)

The world safe and sound for you
Someday
You will know your strong enough foundation
One day
Someday
