Mike Posner Dedicates Album to His Father + “January 11, 2017” Lyrics

Mike Posner Dedicates Album to His Father + “January 11, 2017” Lyrics

Mike Posner remembers his father on the 2 year anniversary of his death (January 11, 2017) and shares some of the things he’s learned from his life and death. Mike dedicates his new album, A Real Good Kid, to his late father and shares the lyrics to the 1st track titled “January 11, 2017.” A Real Good Kid officially releases a week from today on Friday, January 18th.

Two years ago today my Dad made his transition. the second slide on this post are the lyrics to track one. As you will soon learn, this album is dedicated to him. Originally we were going to release today in his memory but it didn’t feel right to me spiritually so we changed it to the 18th.

SOME OF THE THINGS I LEARNED FROM HIS LIFE:
1. What it means to really love people unconditionally.
2. Always take care of your mother.
3. You never really have to grow up.
4. Sometimes being a man means being soft.
5. What it means to really show up for your family.
6. Take the high road.
7. You’ll figure it out.
8. Enjoy this life…chill.

SOME THINGS I LEARNED FROM HIS DEATH:
1. Life is short.
2. Don’t wait to do that thing you want to do, do it now.
3. Don’t wait to tell that person you love them, do it now.
4. Don’t wait to give/get forgiveness, do it now.
5. Enjoy this life…chill.
6. There is no right way to grieve.

You’ll understand more in a week. If you still have your parents, for me, make sure you tell them you love them and WHY today.
Love you all,
Mp

“January 11, 2017” Lyrics:

I cleaned out your dresser, found some joints.
My sister smoked ‘em, I didn’t see the point.
And everyone keeps saying, that I look just like you.
Life don’t seem so long anymore.

The day my daddy died,
I damn near quit the band.
The day my daddy died,
I held my mama’s hand.
I cried my tears then dried ‘em up,
Put my face inside my hands.
The day my daddy died,
I became a man.

The cops came, they did not take off their shoes.
People hug me, I smell like ten thousand perfumes.
Gave away the wheelchair, you’re gone but I’m still here.
January in Detroit is cold as fuck.

The day my daddy died,
I damn near quit the band.
The day my daddy died,
I held my mama’s hand.
I cried my tears then dried ‘em up,
Put my face inside my hands.
The day my daddy died,
I became a man.
The day my daddy died,
I became a man.

My dad: I love you a lot.
Me: I love you too.
My dad: Remind me to let you run away if you need to run places like the basement. I mean, that’s what it’s a part of… that… being an individual.
Me: Yeah letting people go.
My dad: Yeah.
Me: Remind me to let you go too if you need to.
My dad: Absolutely.
Me: I love you.
