[Intro: Donda West]
Two lessons that he passed along to his children
The first is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
The second was that, no matter what, you love unconditionally
It is that kind of love that made my father the kind of father and the kind of man he is
He vowed that he would never walk away from his family, and he never has

[Verse 1: Kanye West]
You know why my spirit’s callin’
Darkness can’t take light from me
Haven’t you gone far enough?
Sacrificed the ones you love
Gave up on your sanity
Like some twisted fantasy
What would I say to everything?
Your actions cost everything

[Refrain]
My, my, my family
My family, I’m losing my family
I’m losing my family
Losing my family

[Verse 2]
Cried out to you in my sleep, you thought it was a dream
“Why won’t you answer me? I’m in the room”
“Tell mom you’re sorry,” she’s screaming at me
“Daddy, how could you leave? Daddy, how could you leave?”
“Come back tonight, daddy, please, come back tonight, daddy, please”
“Daddy, how could you leave? Daddy, how could you leave?”
She don’t know what this means, “How’d you become so mean?”
I wish I never screamed, “Alcohol when you breathe”
These things, these things, these things, these things, they sting
“Daddy promise you’ll stay, don’t you love me? Love me”

[Outro: Donda West]
Two lessons that he passed along to his children
The first -is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
-Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
-Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
-Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
-Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
-Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
-Is that, no matter what, you never abandon your family
It is that kind of love that made my father the kind of father and the kind of man he is
He vowed that he would never walk away from his family, and he never has“Never Abandon Your Family” is the first time that Ye publicly opens up about his divorce from his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and the emotional labor the familial separation has caused him.At the debut event for the album Donda, his ex-wife Kim Kardashian wore fully in red, as did Kanye, which made fans on the internet draw connections with this song.During the song’s debut at the sold-out Donda listening party at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Kanye dropped to his knees in front of the crowd of 49,000. Kanye gets personal about his father’s lack of a presence during his youth, and how he does not want the same for his children.Recited countless times throughout the song is Donda West saying “no matter what, you never abandon your family.” This holds immense emotional weight for Kanye as he does not want to make the same mistakes as his father.The song was supposed to be released on Donda, since it was played at the first listening party, but it was ultimately scrapped from the project.Following the release of Donda, on October 26, 2021, the Donda Stem Player started to arrive to people who had bought them, they revealed this song arrived with the product, along with other songs that were cut from the final version.
