Only One

I remember listening to Roses or Hey Mama by Mr. West & just relating so much to him because I knew the pain he was going thru. When I heard this new song last night it made me cry, it’s just so beautiful. I think it’s amazing when lyrics & music make you feel real and alive.

Sometimes I also hear my mom talk to me & sometimes I feel like she sends me angels.

“I talked to God about you

He said he sent you an angel

Look at all that he gave you”

Music connects people in the most deepest intimate ways & that’s why I am so passionate about it. I have always been a huge supporter of Kanye. I hope to meet him one day so we can talk about our moms. I know it’s hard for some people to understand him and that’s okay.

Some people are just meant to be misunderstood – evalyn michelle

“To be great is to be misunderstood.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Music is the universal language of mankind.” 

― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Music is the great uniter. An incredible force. Something that people who differ on everything and anything else can have in common.” 

― Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

“Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music.” 

― George Eliot, The Mill on the Floss

“When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,

speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,

speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, …..” 

― Paul McCartney

 

“Only One” By Kanye West

As I lay me down to sleep

I hear her speak to me

Hello Omari, how you doing?

I think the storm ran out of rain, the clouds are moving

I know you’re happy, cause I can see it

So tell the voice inside your head to believe it

I talked to God about you

He said he sent you an angel

Look at all that he gave you

You asked for one and you got two

You know I never left you

Cause every road that leads to heaven is right beside you

So I can say

[Hook 1]

Hello my only one

Just like the morning sun

You keep on rising till the sky knows your name

Hello my only one

Remember who you are

No you’re not perfect but you’re not your mistakes

[Verse 2]

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Oh the good outweighs the bad even on your worst day

Remember I’d say

Hey, hey, one day

You’ll be the man you always knew you could be

And if you knew, how proud I was

You’d never shed a tear, have a fear

No you wouldn’t do that

And no I didn’t pick the day to turn a page

I know it’s not the end every time I see her face

And I hear you say

[Hook 2]

Hello my only one

Remember who you are

You got the world cause you got the love in your hands

And you’re still my chosen one

So can you understand

One day you’ll understand

[Bridge]

So hear me out, hear me out

I won’t go, I won’t go

No goodbyes, no goodbyes

Just hello, just hello

And when you cry, I will cry

And when you smile, I will smile

And next time when I look in your eyes

We’ll have wings and we’ll fly

[Hook 1]

[Outro]

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about-

I just want you to do me a favor

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me

[Hook: Kanye West]
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky

[Verse 1: Kanye West]
Man, man, man
If my manager insults me again I will be assaulting him
After I fuck the manager up then I’m gonna shorten the register up
Let’s go back, back to the Gap
Look at my check, wasn’t no scratch
So if I stole, wasn’t my fault
Yeah I stole, never got caught
They take me to the back and pat me
Askin’ me about some khakis
But let some black people walk in
I bet they show off their token blackie
Oh now they love Kanye, let’s put him all in the front of the store
Saw him on break next to the ‘No Smoking’ sign with a blunt and a Mall’
Takin’ my hits, writin’ my hits
Writin’ my rhymes, playin’ my mind
This fuckin’ job can’t help him
So I quit, y’all welcome
Y’all don’t know my struggle
Y’all can’t match my hustle
You can’t catch my hustle
You can’t fathom my love dude
Lock yourself in a room doin’ five beats a day for three summers
That’s a different world like Kree Summers
I deserve to do these numbers
The kid that made that deserves that Maybach
So many records in my basement
I’m just waitin’ on my spaceship, blaow

[Hook: Kanye West]
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky

[Verse 2: GLC]
Man, I’m talkin’ way past the sky
Let’s go, yeah
And I didn’t even try to work a job
Represent the mob
At the same time thirsty on the grind
Chi state of mind
Lost my momma, lost my mind
+My life, my love+ that’s not mine
Why you ain’t signed?
Wasn’t my time
Leave me alone, work for y’all
Half of it’s yours, half of it’s mine
Only one to ball
Never one to fall
Gotta get mine
Gotta take mine
Got a tech nine
Reach my prime
Gotta make these haters respect mine
In the mall ’til 12 when my schedule said nine
Puttin’ them pants on shelves
Waitin’ paitently I ask myself
Where I wanna go, where I wanna be
Life is much more than runnin’ in the streets
Holla at ‘ye, hit me with the beat
Put me on my feet
Sound so sweet
Yes I’m the same ol’ G, same goatee
Stayin’ low key, nope
Holler at God “Man why’d you had to take my folks?”
Hope to see Freddy G., Yusef G
Love my G, Rolly G
Police watch me smoke my weed, count my G’s
Got a lot of people countin’ on me
And I’m just tryin’ to find my peace
Should of finished school like my niece
Then I wouldn’t finally wouldn’t use my piece, blaow
Aw man, all this pressure

[Hook: Kanye West]
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky

[Verse 3: Consequence]
I remember havin’ to take the dollar cab
Comin’ home real late at night
Standin’ on my feet all damn day
Tryin’ to make this thing right
And havin’ one of my co-workers say “Yo you look just like
This kid I seen in the old Busta Rhymes video the other night”
Well easy come, easy go
How that sayin’ goes
No more broad service, cars, and them TV shows
I all had that snatched from me
And all the faculties all turn their back on me
And didn’t wanna hear a rap from me
So naturally actually had to face things factually
Had to be a catastrophe with the fridgest starin’ back at me
Cuz nothing’s there, nothing’s fair
I don’t wanna ever go back there
So I won’t be takin’ no days off ’til my spaceship takes off

[Hook: Kanye West]
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky
I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky

[Outro: GLC]
I wanna fly, I wanna fly
I said I want my chariot to pick me up
And take me brother for a ride
