"I Miss You" as written by Earl Simmons and Brian Desmond Collins....
I know that my savior lives
And at the end, he will stand on this earth
My flesh may be destroyed, yet from this body, I will see God
Yes, I will see him for myself - and I long for that moment

Grandma, I really miss you and it ain't been the same
I drop a tear when I, hear yo' name
Mariella Holloway, why you gotta be so far away?
Used to say, "Don't worry, it's gon' be okay"
But it ain't it's like when you left, you took the Lord witchu
Why couldn't I come when he came to get you?
Damn I really miss you I had to say it again
I remember the time when I was like ten
Crept up in the neighbor's yard, yeah, bein hard headed
You told me I would get it you said it!
And boy did I get it, but after you spanked me, you hugged me
Kissed me on my forehead, told me that you love me
And I saw, that it hurt you, more than it hurt me
I thought how bad could this hurt be? I know now
That's why it's only done out of love
What I wouldn't give for one mo' hug, from grandma

Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin')
Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin')

What I'm about to say a couple of family members is gon' hate me
But I'mma let you know what's been goin on lately
Now you know since you left, a lot of things witcho kids done changed
Yeah Jackie's still crazy, don't know what's up with James
Ain't seen Jerry in a while, you know he walk like you
And Renee's back in jail, you know she talk like you
Riculah's doin real good now, she workin'
Rhonda's still runnin' around, trickin', jerkin
Buckeye's buggin', he done lost his mind
And Jarvis? Back out of jail, doin fine
Kylie? He done changed, it ain't all about self
As for my father well, that's somethin' else
But that's my dog, he hold his grandmother down
My great grandmother, makin a lot of trips out of town
But that's a good thing, and if I could only hear you sing
Once more, oh Lord, the comfort it would bring

Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin)
Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin)

You left behind a mother (and) eleven kids (and) eleven grandkids
And since then, two of yo' grandkids done had kids
They had a boy named Tacoma, Xavier's brother, that's right
Xavier's made you a great grandmother
I thank you for the best times of my life
I thank you for when you first met her, accepted and lovin' my wife
I thank you for those Sunday dinners, they were vital
I thank you for my life, I thank you for the bible
I thank you for the songs that you sing in the mornin'
(Amazing Grace) while I'm yawnin'
I thank you for the two beatings you gave me
Cause I know somewhere along the line
The lesson I learned from the two beatings saved me
And when you died I cried like a baby, I begged the Lord to take me
Cause no one else could give me what you gave me
But life like everything comes to an end
I pray I go to heaven to see you again - amen

Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin')
Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin')

Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin')
Baby it's gon' be okay (she used to tell me that)
Baby it's gon' be okay (I really miss hearin')

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now I'm found
Was blind, but now I see, yeah

    General CommentIts missing some parts..but thats okay. You took the time to actually post the lyric for this song and thats pretty tight. Well the song should be like this:

    you used to say "Don't worry, it's gone be ok"
    But it ain't. It's like, when you left, you took the Lord wit you
    why could not i come when he came to get you?
    damn, i really miss you i had to say it again
    i remember the time when i was like, ten
    and crept up in the neighbor's yard, yeah, bein hardheaded
    you told me that i would get it, you said it! and boy did i get it!
    but after you spanked me, you hugged me
    kissed me on my forehead and told me that you loved me
    and swore that it hurt you more than it hurt me
    i thought how bad could this hurt be?
    i know now that's why i'm dead outta luv

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of my grandmother who basically raised me and how I miss her. Every time I hear him talk about her it feels like he means mine. Unbelievably deep and intelligent artist.
