Over a beat based on “Mother” by John Lennon, Eminem issues a public apology to his mom on “Headlights”. Eminem and his mother have never really gotten along, as she has been a target of hateful lyrics in songs like “Cleanin' Out my Closet” (2002) and “My Mom” (2009). After years of vitriol, Em now raps with a more mature perspective and expresses remorse and even apologizes for the songs attacking her.

Above is a paper containing some of the lyrics from the second verse, from the music video.
