Kane Brown On Learning To Forgive

posted by Ashley - 

Kane Brown was a victim of child abuse and racism, but he isn't bitter. Instead, he has learned to forgive.

Kane opened up for Chris Young's Losing Sleep World Tour in Biloxi last night, and took a few minutes to speak directly to his fans about the obstacles he faced growing up.

He detailed how he experienced homelessness with his mom, how his grandmother rescued him from an abusive family member, and the bullying he endured.

Despite all of this, Kane is not holding onto bitterness. Kane explains in his song, "Learning."

When I was six years old, I kinda wet the bed

My stepdad came in and nearly beat me to death

All bruised and broken, I was lonely and scared

My mom, she was working, there was nobody there

My nana showed up, she was super protective

Had a tear in her eye, she saw how I was neglected

The crazy part about it, she's a straight-up detective

But you never would've guessed, how she'd cook you a breakfast

Three weeks later, she had him locked in a cell

Now I'm seven years old with a story to tell

Sing it

I'm gonna let it go

Forgiveness is something we gotta know

'Cause if you hold on forever, it'll hurt your soul

That's why I'm learning how to let it go

That's why I'm learning how to let it go

Now middle school's here, a new chapter in life

New stepdad, too, made my mama his wife

Got new problems now, like tryna fit in

Getting looked down on just because of your skin

It's bad enough, I can't afford them clothes

Got high water's on with holes in my sole

Now, that's the type of stuff to put a hole in your soul

I'm gonna let it go

Forgiveness is something we gotta know'

Cause if you hold on forever, it'll hurt your soul

That's why I'm learning how to let it go

That's why I'm learning how to let it go

I'm grown up now, I learned enough for a song

Still got some friends, but most of 'em gone

Overdoses or killed by a gun

Breaking into houses, life on the run

Did it for his kid, now he won't be around

Guess the little one's gonna be just like me now

If you're carrying the bitterness around on your shoulders

Then just remember what I told you

Sing itI'm gonna let it go

Forgiveness is something we gotta know

'Cause if you hold on forever, it'll hurt your soulT

hat's why I'm learning how to let it go

That's why I'm learning how to let it go

I'm learning how to let it go
