You’re like the flower that I won’t let die.
Right before your petals start to wilt, I choose to give you one last try.
Fill your vase up with water, refusing to neglect you like your father, so I promise that it won’t run dry.

And this cop sees a bright, talented, decent young man. This cop’s not going to let you live down to anyone’s expectation. Do you understand me? All you need is someone who believes in you. Someone you can count on and i`m going to be that person. Do you know why? Cause i have to believe in a world where a kid like you gets a real chance. That’s why i`m doing this, AJ.
