Hey
Can you hear me?
I just wanted to let you know, hmm

I hope you can hear what I write to you
How could I say goodbye to you?
When I'm a life that came out 
Of the inside of a life that was inside of you
I gotta respect the way you provided food, for the whole fam'
You came over on Windrush, supporting a mar jays old man
Cold doubling eight kids, bare bills
Plus racists full of hatred in your own plant
Three jobs in a day (three jobs in a day)
Brixton life had you working but you were never stress-free
Just locked in a cage, slaving
They said there were gold in the pavements
When you came and saw the road, your amazement
Broke your heart but still you were prone to loss
And your sorrow was over fast
I hope your listening, right (I hope your listening, right)
I still think of you every Sunday
No one can top your chicken and rice
Even through the darkness times
You held us all up because your vision was bright
I knew your strength was your wisdom inside
You never let anyone see your heartache
You just got on with it
Anyone that tells me that they knew you 
Said you were beautiful and your words you would stand strong with it
'Cause they were like warmth on a winter night
But I was just too young to go on with it
And there somethings I could try to do
But it's an impossible task for me to even try to say goodbye to you
I couldn't do that, I owe my life to you

I grab the pieces of my soul
Because I need a sign
I hope this pain will heal in time
You know I never want to be alone

I can see the stars as a cold wind greets the air
And will you think of me up there?
Can I say goodbye to you?
And paint the stains of the teardrops down my face?
Or feel the chill of your warm embrace?
Can I say goodbye to you? Ohh

I think if only I was younger (younger)
With the knowledge of things that I know now
I would be by your side when you needed me
Instead of asking you, "Nan can I go out?"
Standing on road with them gangs are a no, now
Everyone's missing you loads
Jessica's grown up, Rory, Lauren and Alex are fine 
And I'm living with hope
It's been a while since I've seen Sian and Miles
I miss seeing a family, being a family
And us agreeing with smiles how it used to be as a child
But as time goes by, the bridge seems longer
Family problems have never been funny
In my heart the only one that dissed me, Sonia
She took all our inheritance money
Left the rest of us to pick up the pieces
I never forgive the way she betrayed us
There ain't a big enough reason
Before I sell out my fam' I'll be giving up breathing
But I guess that everyone's different
Or should I say no one's perfect?
She had happiness in front of her
But chose to ride the wave that no one's surfing
Since you gone the foundations crumbled
So building it back up is my next step
I got all of the bricks and the cement 
But it's hard when I'm done, I don't know what to expect
So give me the strength that I need to perform this task
Make it right, I must do and I ask 'cause I trust you
It goes way beyond a song when I say that I love you

I grab the pieces of my soul
Because I need a sign
I hope this pain will heal in time
You know I never want to be alone

I can see the stars as a cold wind greets the air
And will you think of me up there?
Can I say goodbye to you?
And paint the stains of the teardrops down my face?
Or feel the chill of your warm embrace?
Can I say goodbye to you? Ohh

It's just for now so I should hush
I'll never get enough, I'll see you, when I see you but
I miss you
Oh, how I miss you
It's just for now so I should hush
I'll never get enough, I'll see you when I see you but
I miss you
Oh, how I miss you

There ain't enough words to describe
How sorry I am for the pain that I caused
Sorry for when I stuck up my own blood
We were young and he said I was raping his broad
And for the day police came to the door
I'm sorry for being such a bad yute
Stealing from your purse and making you mourn
I never been able to say this before
'Cause I was so inconsiderate
You loved me unconditionally
And I took advantage of it like a idiot
Not seeing the pure soul I was living with
I really hope that you can forgive me
You going away was a punishment
But I won't let go I'm holding you with me
But I still fight emotions within me

I can see the stars as a cold wind greets the air
And will you think of me up there?
And can I say goodbye to you?
And paint the stains of the teardrops down your face?
Or feel the chill of your warm embrace?
And can I say goodbye to you?

I can see the stars as a cold wind greets the air
And will you think of me up there?
And can I say goodbye to you?
And paint the stains of the teardrops down my face?
Or feel the chill of your warm embrace?
Can I say goodbye to you?
