"I Miss Her" as written by Claude Kelly, Jessica Cornish and Charles T Harmon....
It's not fair
I'm talking to You upstairs
Are you there?
You know I care
So please don't tell me that this is an empty prayer
Oh no

'Cause all she has and all she's lost
I wish she could remember
I watch her fade and slip away
It's hurting more than ever

[Chorus]
I miss her even though she's still here
You need to listen
Don't let her disappear
I'll give her my forever
If it meant for a day she could really be okay
'Cause I miss her
Even though she's still here

Is this pretend?
Will she really not know my face?
In the end
If You're a friend a friend a friend
Show me how to heal it when she can't even feel it
Please... show me

'Cause all she has and all she's lost
I wish she could remember
I watch her fade and slip away
It's hurting more than ever

I miss her even though she's still here
You need to listen
Don't let her disappear
I'll give her my forever
If it meant for a day she could really be okay
'Cause I miss her

And promise me this
When she goes
Everything she sees will set her free
Thirteen and the color green
Promise me this
That she knows
That the people that she loves
Will love her in the skies above

I miss her even though she's still here
You need to listen
So don't let her disappear
I'll give her my forever forever forever
If it meant for a day she could really be okay
'Cause I miss her
Even though she's still here

She's still here oh

I miss her, miss her miss her
I just miss her, miss her miss her
I miss her even though she's still here

    Song MeaningSo... she wrote this song because a woman of her family has alzheimer... Really sad song.

    "It's not fair/ I'm talking to You upstairs/ Are you there?/ You know I care/ So please don't tell me that this is an empty prayer"
    It think she's praying to God, but she thinks He isn't even listening to her.

    "'Cause all she has and all she's lost/ I wish she could remember/ I watch her fade and slip away/ It's hurting more than ever"
    She's worried because she knows this woman is suffering and slowly dying.

    "I miss her even though she's still here"
    This woman's still alive, but Jessie misses the way she was before having alzheimer.

    "You need to listen/ Don't let her disappear"
    She's begging to God that this women won't forget everything.

    "I'll give her my forever/ If it meant for a day she could really be okay/ 'Cause I miss her/ Even though she's still here"
    She would give her whole life just to see this woman's alright just for one day.

    "Is this pretend?/ Will she really not know my face?"
    She wonders if this woman is pretending or if she actually can't remember Jessie.

    "If You're a friend/ Show me how to heal it when she can't even feel it/ Please... show me"
    She asks God for a cure... The woman doesn't even know she's ill.

    "And promise me this/ When she goes/ Everything she sees will set her free/ Thirteen and the colour green"
    This is the only part of the song which I don't understand... Maybe 13 is the woman's favourite number and green is her favourite colour.

    "Promise me this/ That she knows/ That the people that she loves/ Will love her in the skies above"
    Jessie wants God to promise her that when the woman dies, she'll know that her family and friends love her, even though she can't remember anyone.
