The Brutal Truth Behind Eminem song (Mockingbird)

The Truth Behind Eminem song The Brutal Truth Behind Eminem song (Mockingbird)

 

Eminem’s song mockingbird is a revelation of what he has been through. The Brutal Truth Behind Eminem song (Mockingbird), the shortcomings and the hassle he is passing through. It is indeed a song that will make you to reminisce on your own life, it instills in our love for our kids.

It’s great to hear Marshall Mathers call attention to the things he’s fouled up, rather than pointing out other individuals’ flaws; which is one reason why I like it. He collected all his memories and detailed it in the song lyrics.

What year did Mockingbird come out?

Mockingbird”  is a song from his fifth studio album Encore (2004).  It was discharged as the fifth single from the album in April 2005. It charted at #4 in the United Kingdom, and as well, at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. It got the nomination for Grammy for Best Rap Solo Performance.
The song was dedicated to his daughter, Hailie Jade, and his adopted daughter Alaina. It shows his love for hailey and Alaina.
INTRO
Yeah
I know sometimes things may not
Always make sense to you right now
But hey
What daddy always tell you?
Straighten up little soldier
Stiffen up that upper lip
What you crying about?
You got me
This is the introductory part, It talks about the past (pain and sorrow). Eminem returns to a period where Hailie and Alaina were two little children and they were too little to even think about understanding whatever was going on.
VERSE 1
Hailie I know you miss your mom
and I know you miss your dad
Well I’m gone but I’m trying to give you the life that I never had
I can see you’re sad,
even when you smile, even when you laugh
I can see it in your eyes, deep inside you want to cry
Cause you’re scared, I ain’t there?
Daddy’s with you in your prayers
No more crying, wipe them tears
Daddy’s here, no more nightmares
We gon’ pull together through it, we gon’ do it
Laney uncle’s crazy, ain’t he?
Yeah but he loves you girl and you better know it
Eminem disclosed the tough time in his family life. He called out bravely to her daughter, Hailie, who has missed both mum and dad, due to a split in their marriage and dad was the one who at times was available to be with them. Dad was always on a tour, seeking to sign a record deal to really put his name on a CD.
Eminem had a turbulent childhood and with this, he has promised to give his kids the life which he never had (Good Life). He observes all the things which she passes through, even when he’s not there but he’s with her in her prayers. These are among The Brutal Truth Behind Eminem song (Mockingbird), which made him spell it out.
We’re all we got in this world
When it spins, when it swirls
When it whirls, when it twirls
Two little beautiful girls
Lookin’ puzzled, in a daze
I know it’s confusing you
Daddy’s always on the move, mama’s always on the news
I try to keep you sheltered from it but somehow it seems
The harder that I try to do that, the more it backfires on me
All the things growing up his daddy that he had to see
Daddy don’t want you to see but you see just as much as he did
He indicated that we’re all we got in this world, no other inheritance other than ourselves. Even in trial times, temptations, and challenges, we are who we are. Daddy’s always not around due to his career while mum is always on the news because of her drug addiction and other bad reasons.
We did not plan it to be this way, your mother and me
But things have gotten so bad between us
I don’t see us ever being together ever again
Like we used to be when we were teenagers
But then of course everything always happens for a reason
I guess it was never meant to be
But it’s just something we have no control over and that’s what destiny is
But no more worries, rest your head and go to sleep
Maybe one day we’ll wake up and this will all just be a dream
This was never the plan but things got so disgusting that mom and dad will never be together anymore. This was the time the hush little baby needed their parents most but the situation has pushed them far away.  Dad assured them of one thing, that one day, maybe this all will just be a dream.
Hook
Now hush little baby, don’t you cry
Everything’s gonna be alright
Stiffen that upper lip up little lady, I told ya
Daddy’s here to hold ya through the night
I know mommy’s not here right now and we don’t know why
We fear how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby
But I promise momma’s gon’ be alright
Eminem couldn’t do anything else other than comforting them because things have spoiled beyond repair. He incorporated the well-known nursery rhyme “Hush, Little Baby” into the lyrics, to mingle his message. His versatility made him a lyricist as well as the proper choice of words.
Even though mom is not there, he’s still giving them an assurance that momma’s gonna be alright. He tried in every manner to convince them that all is well and also ease them from getting a sleepless night.
Verse 2
It’s funny
I remember back one year when daddy had no money
Mommy wrapped the Christmas presents up
And stuck ’em under the tree and said some of ’em were from me
Cause daddy couldn’t buy ’em
I’ll never forget that Christmas I sat up the whole night crying
Cause daddy felt like a bum, see daddy had a job
But his job was to keep the food on the table for you and mom
And at the time every house that we lived in
Either kept getting broken into and robbed
Or shot up on the block and your mom was saving money for you in a jar
Tryna start a piggy bank for you so you could go to college
Almost had a thousand dollars till someone broke in and stole it
And I know it hurt so bad it broke your momma’s heart
Dad recalled the past year, how bad luck and less fortunate he is. It was Christmas and mommy got all that is needed for the celebration cos dad couldn’t buy them. They were always a victim of theft, the one that broke momma’s heart was almost a thousand dollars she saved up in a jar got stolen and it was meant to be used to train Hailie in college.
Mom and dad was arguin’ a lot so momma moved back
On the Chalmers in the flat one bedroom apartment
And dad moved back to the other side of 8 Mile on Novara
Mom couldn’t bear the pain and dad as well, so she moved back On the Chalmers in the flat one bedroom apartment, while dad moved to the other side of 8 Mile on Novara.
And that’s when daddy went to California with his CD and met Dr. Dre
And flew you and momma out to see me
But daddy had to work, you and momma had to leave me
Then you started seeing daddy on the T.V. and momma didn’t like it
And you and Laney were too young to understand it
Papa was a rollin’ stone, momma developed a habit
And it all happened too fast for either one of us to grab it
I’m just sorry you were there and had to witness it first hand
Dad decided to visit California in a bid to meet Dr. Dre and luck ran on him and he met with him with his CD. How times flies, they started seeing dad on the T.V. Mom got more irritated and Hailie was just too young to comprehend the situation. The Brutal Truth Behind Eminem song (Mockingbird), dad flew them over to California to visit him, but dad still gotta work and momma and Hailie had to leave.
Papa is now a success whereas mom is getting more addicted to the drug. She is either jealous of dad’s successful career or because he is not always around for the family.
Cause all I ever wanted to do was just make you proud
Now I’m sitting in this empty house, just reminiscing
Lookin’ at your baby pictures, it just trips me out
To see how much you both have grown, it’s almost like you’re sisters now
Wow, guess you pretty much are and daddy’s still here
Laney I’m talkin’ to you too, daddy’s still here
I like the sound of that, yeah
It’s got a ring to it don’t it?
Shh, momma’s only gone for the moment
Eminem’s dreams and aspirations were always to make her proud against all odds but it got out of his control and now, he is reminiscing on his past days, inside an empty house, just looking at Hailie’s baby pictures. Laney has not left out also.
Hook
Now hush little baby, don’t you cry
Everything’s gonna be alright
Stiffen that upper lip up little lady, I told ya
Daddy’s here to hold ya through the night
I know mommy’s not here right now and we don’t know why
We fear how we feel inside
It may seem a little crazy, pretty baby
But I promise momma’s gon’ be alright
Outro
And if you ask me too Daddy’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
I’mma give you the world
I’mma buy a diamond ring for you
I’mma sing for you
I’ll do anything for you to see you smile
And if that mockingbird don’t sing and that ring don’t shine
I’mma break that birdies neck
I’ll go back to the jeweler who sold it to ya
And make him eat every carat don’t fuck with dad (ha ha)
Eminem threatens to cross all boundaries just to keep them happy and see them smile. If the mocking bird doesn’t sing, and the jewel doesn’t shine. He’s gotta break that bird’s neck and he will not take it likely with the jeweler…
