Missy Elliott Feat. TLC – Can You Hear Me lyrics

I been checkin' on your moms and dad
And your brother, since the day you left, left
Passed on and went away with God
But for your momma, it's been so damn hard

I hate to even hear her cry, cry
Aaliyah, she asked me why, why
Would her baby girl go this way
Can you give me better words to say?

Come one day, she'll see you again
With the same ol' beautiful smile
Long hair and the voice of a hummin' bird
You'll be singing them same ol' songs

Aaliyah, can you hear me?
I hope that you're proud of me
Me and Tim, we been doin' our thing
But it's never been the same since you had to go
I ain't never met a friend more incredible

I know you're in real good hands
With God but damn I miss you
Aaliyah, if you see Left Eye
Will you tell her, me and 'Boz miss her too

'Cuz no one's gonna fill her space
T C L not replaced
Y'all the reasons we learned to love, love
Fly high wit' your 22 doves

One day we'll see her again
With the same ol' beautiful smile
Crazy but s*** cool
And she'll be rappin' them same ol' songs

Lisa, can you hear me?
We hope that you're proud of us
Tlc has come a long way
But it's never been the same since you had to go
'Cuz the healin' process will be long and slow

Aaliyah, I know you're in a safer place
You're face to face with the creator and our maker
And if you and Left Eye happen to chat
Tell her me and Tionne, we know she's much safer

If you see Biggie smalls up in the clouds
Tell him he's still the illest emcee we had around
2Pac there is only one, Big Pun rip
We say one, one, yeah, yeah

One day we'll see y'all again
With the same ol' beautiful smiles
All styles so many styles
And y'all be doin' the same old things
The last time we seen ya

We hope y'all can change the world
Let 'em see how short life be
It will never be the same since ya had to go
To the music world, y'all are incredible
