Kanye West, 38, continues to tease new songs on social media for his new album and his latest teased track is for his father, Ray.

Contrary to popular belief, Kanye does have a soft spot. We’ve seen it a few times when it comes to talking about his kids, North and Saint and also with his wife Kim Kardashian and mother, Donda. Now, the rapper is opening up to fans on the same day he is set to release his new album, “The Life of Pablo.” In a new tweet, Kanye wrote: “Father Stretch My Hands…. I cried writing this.  I love my Dad.” He added a photo that featured lyrics to a new song, as well as what appears to be his parent’s old wedding photo. There’s also a snap of a woman’s big butt in a thong from behind — Oh, Kanye.  Honestly, what could it all mean?!

Read below for lyrics:

up in the morning
miss you bad
sorry that i ain’t call you back
the same problems my father had
all his time
all he had
all he had
in what what he dreamed
all his cash
market crashed
hurt him bad
people get divorced for that
drop some stacks pops is good
momma pass in hollywood
if you ask
lost my soul
driving fast
lost control
off the road
jaw was broke
remember we
all was broke
member I’m
coming back
and I’ll be taking all the stacks
