Babyface - Not Going Nowhere Lyrics

I heard from your mom that you cried out last night
For a certain someone to turn on the lights you found
That someone was not by your side and mom had to wipe
Away your tears you asked her why dad isn't here she starts
To tell you dads working late you say how come every day
Of the week and she answers you with go back to sleep
Your heart tells you something has changed why they've
Been acting so strange...

Well i'm here to tell you you don't have to fear cause
Your daddy loves you i'm not going nowhere and i won't
Give you up and not goin' to walk away comes to you
And i nothings going to change i'm here to tell you
You don't have to be scared
I'm not going nowhere...

Its true that i live in a whole different house but that
Doesn't mean i won't come around i'm still the best friends
With your mom have no doubt we'll still make time to
Hang out i promise i won't let you down

I've got a room with your name on the door your favorite
Things you could ever ask for then best of all if you cry
Out at night i'll be the one by your side someone to help dry your eyes

Well i'm here to tell you you don't have to fear cause
Your daddy loves you i'm not goin' nowhere i wont give
You up not goin' walk away when it comes to you and i
Nothings going to change i'm here to tell you you don't
Have to be scared cause i'm not going noo... i'm not going nowhere

I know you feel a little scared i know you think its not fair
And you think its all your fault but its not i swear if it wasnt
For you then things could never be so cool so i thank you
For being the one in my life cause you showed
The both of us we did something right...

Well i'm here to tell you
You don't have to fear
Cause your daddy loves your daddy loves you
I'm not going anywhere i'm here to tell you you don't have to fear...

  10. Mike Spoon Sr.

  13. zeneida 268

    Since i was seven i was looking for this song and now im 11 yrs old now this songs mean alot this lyrics is my life now im crying because my dad wasnt there for me when im was 7 my life was difficult this makes me cry and this is a basic true meaning of my life i was kicked out with my mother at 7 by my dad i see him some times but never on my birthday

    zeneida 268

  15. Tribulation Saint

    Used to sing this song to my 3 babies all the time. Dionisio, Jessica & Lauryn. My reasons for breathing.💖💖💖

  16. MultiPRETTIE

    Well this is too emotional wish my daddy loved me for who am and not for what i can achieve and how successful i can be like my siblings...wish he loved me for who God created me to be but its cool mama loves me

  17. WALDER

    had to revisit this wonderful tune again...after all its been 2 years.

  18. Ti-Ti Cormier

    This is a wonderful song... People don't realize that when divorce occurs the children are the one caught in the middle. The children are the victims, and so many men lose contact with their children after divorce, and that really hurts children because they sometimes feel that they did something wrong. I love this song; it sends a great message out to all fathers across the world.

  19. wilwat9

I will see you again one day when you are able to make your own decisions. Step-parents have no rights and that is so unfair....I LOVE YOU SON..

  45. unrooolie

    Someone is always cutting onions when this song plays

  46. tee dee

    lol at Idris Alba looking Dad who blocks sons shot but later acts slow do his son can finally make a lay up. Also was feeling the bokeem woodbine pop who started things off. Conberse like he stepped out of Jasons Lyric.

  59. SleekMack

    For my Boys. No amount of mediocrity will stop me from having a relationship with y'all. EVER!

  60. Becky Duque

    U know, there are 3 sides to every story.
    Your moms, .
    Your dads
    and the truth.
    Although you place blame on your mom understand that there was something that pushed her to cheat on your dad.

    I am just voicing my opinion..
    more power to all of you though.

  61. deepsea4339

    To my daughter. I need you in my life Violet Thiessen-Papillon. I want to watch you grow up, to be there for you when you need me every day, to be your dad. I dont want to loose you.

  80. treat2c

    Wow. I had never heard this song. It is so deep and touching. More fathers should say this to their children if their relationships don't work out.

  81. hyuugaevileye

    I wish I had this song fifteen years ago.

  82. norshahmir

    babyface forever and ever.....bring back the whip appeal!!

  83. Siyabonga Makhaye

    what an awesome song for a baby it like a Lullaby

  84. damain lacroix

    This song it the truth i wish all dads were like that ;(

  85. damain lacroix

    This is awsome

  86. Eve30

    Beautiful song!

  87. chicano4041

    @SOULdierX93 I don't agree. He needs to work alone. He's way better when he produces and writes alone, L.A. Reid would be the only exception. It was sad when he tried to do what you suggested. He tried to work with the neptunes and other artists around 2002 and it was all bad. The only good songs from that album were the ones he made alone.

  88. David Kabwe

    Babyface really sings from the heart, simply lovely...

  89. Darell McKinsey

    man, i luv Kenny, he should come back bigger than ever! He should collaborate some of the hottest artists of today and produce a big hit and another classic!

  90. quincyentyrone

    @just4de3a zero dislike, nice!

  91. unrooolie

    This is a love song in its truest form

    Miranda Al

    It's not a love song - it's a song for his child

  92. CeeThe Beauty

    wow.. so powerful.

  93. love10006

    @reesebby1994 omg sorry for your lost

  94. Justnoortje87

    sad song:(

  95. brendantlm

    I had never really talk to my dad, on a personal level, as often... Now I'm 30 and there are so many times I really wonder what goes through his head. This song really sends that ache and sourness to my heart but it shows how beautiful this song is... I love you dad.

  96. Cedric Heron

    touching song

  97. marcyboy

    This is such a beautiful, amazing song. Babyface is so awesome! Does anyone else agree though that this sounds pretty similar to Michael Jackson's 'You are my life' from his invincible album - which was also written by Babyface? They're both amazing songs!

  98. Val Oguttu

    This song moves me every time !!!! can help but get emotional
