I know it's past visiting hours
But can I please give her these flowers?
The doctor don't wanna take procedures 
He claim my heart can't take the anesthesia 
It'll send her body into a seizure 
That lil' thing by the hospital bed, it'll stop beepin'
Hey chick, I'm at a loss for words 
What do you say at this time? Remember when I was 9?
Tell her everything gon' be fine, but I be lyin'
Her family cryin', they want her to live, and she tryin'
I'm arguin' like what kind of doctor can we fly in?
You know the best medicine go to people that's paid
If Magic Johnson got a cure for AIDS 
And all the broke motherfuckers passed away
You telling me if my grandma was in the NBA  Right now she'd be okay? But since she
Was just a secretary, worked for the church for 35 years  Things 'sposed to stop right here
My grandfather tryin' to pull it together, he's strong 
That's where I get my confidence from
I asked the nurse "Did you do the research?"
She asked me, "Can you sign some t-shirts?"
Bitch, is you smokin' reefer?
You don't see that we hurt? But still 

I smile when roses come to see me
And I, can't wait for a sunny day (seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break 

They outside of the emergency room
You can feel my heartbeat, beat, beat
If she gon' pull through, we gon' find out soon
But right now she asleep, sleep, sleep 
My momma say they say she could pass away any day
Hey chick, what these doctors know anyway?
Let me see the X-rays, I ain't no expert, I'm just hurt
 Cousin Kim took off of work
Plus my Aunt Shirley, Aunt Beverly, Aunt Clay and Aunt Jean
So many Aunties we could have an Auntie Team
Feel like Amerie, it's just "One Thing"
When they said that she made it you see they eyes gleam 
I think we at a all-time high
To get there, we run, we fly, we drive  Cause with my family we know we know where home is
And so instead of sendin' flowers, we the roses 

I smile when roses come to see me
And I, can't wait for a sunny day (seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break 

It brings the sunshine, oh

I smile when roses come to see me
And I, can't wait for a sunny day (seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break 

I smile when Rosie come to see me
And I'm sad, when Rosie goes away
'Cause Rosie brings the sunshine (say)

Can't wait, I can't wait, no
Can't wait, I can't wait, no
Can't wait, I, can't wait
No, can't wait, for, for a sunny day
 Momma can't wait, for the clouds to break 
Mm mm mm mm-mm mm-mm
Oh oh oh oh no no, say
Tellin' you the truth now
Said I can't wait, uh uh
I won't wait, no
