[verse*Kanye West]
I know it's past visitin hours
But can i please give her these flowers?
The docter don't wanna take procedures
He claim my heart can't take the anestisia
It'll send her body into a seizure
The little thing by the hospital bed, it'll stop beepin
Hey chick, im at a loss for words
What do you say at this time?
Remember when i was nine?
Tell her everything gon be fine
But i'd be lyin, the family cryin
They want her to live, and she tryin
Im arguin like: what kind of docter can we fly in?
You know the best medicine go to people that's payed
If Magic Johnson got a cure for AIDS
And all the broke motha f****s passed away
You tellin me if my grandma's in the NBA, right now she would be ok?
But since she was just a secretary workin' for the church for thirty-five years
Things supposed to stop right here?
My grandfather try to pull it together-he 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?
B****h is you smokin reefer?
You don't see that we hurt?
But still

[CHORUS]
I.............smile
When roses come to see me
And i.......
(cant wait for a sunny day)
Seein it through your eyes
(cant wait for the clouds to break)

[verse*kanye west]
They outside the emergency room room
You can feel my heart beat beat beat
If she gon' pull through we gon' find out soon
But right now she sleep sleep sleep
My momma say, they say, she can pass away any day
Hey chick what these docters know anyway?
Let me see the x-rays
I aint no expert
Im just hurt
Cousin kim took off of work
Plus my aunt shirley,aunt beverly, aunt claie, and aunt jean
Got so many aunties we could have an auntie team
Feel like Amarie, it's this one thing
When they said that she made it, you see their eyes gleem
I think we at an all time high, to get there we run, we fly, we drive
Cause with my family we know where home is
So instead of sendin' flowers, we the roses

[CHORUS]

(roses brings the sunshine......)

[CHORUS]

(i......smile.....when roses come to see me. and i...sad when roses go away.... ohhh roses bring the sunshine)

(ohh....cant wait for a sunny day, ohhh mamma can't wait for the clouds to break)

(tellin you the truth now, 'cause momma can't wait, uh uh, i wont wait givin you the truth now, said I can't wait, I won't wait)
