Travie McCoy - After Midnight Lyrics Miguel - Come Through and Chill Lyrics Ella Mai - How Lyrics Lil Jon - Uhh Ohh Lyrics Young Stoner Life - Really Be Slime Lyrics - She's a Star Lyrics Blackbear - the 1 Lyrics Jhené Aiko - New Balance Lyrics
By the time you get this letter
I might be doin' better
It's kinda hard tryin' to survive
In all this crazy weather
Everybody wants my number
Everybody's callin' my name
But in the midst of all of this
I can still hear you say

Son, walk upright
And straighten your tie
You don't want one of those good jobs to pass you by, no
Don't act no fool
I'm watching you
And now that you're gone, it still feels like you do

I wish (I wish)
I wish you were here
To see the things I've done
I wish you were here
You'd be so proud of your son
I wish you were here
To celebrate with me
I wish you were here

Now all of these people ask me
"Is it lonely at the top?"
Or do I find comfort
In all the things I got
Well these cars keep me movin'
These planes keep me high
A million dollar home
But I'm barely gettin' by

'Cause I miss our talks (whoa)
One thing you used to say (used to say)
When things got hard (hard on me)
Get down on your knees and pray
And then those walks (then those walks)
It's just the simple things
We still do all of this
But only in my dreams

I wish, oh
(I wish you were here) wish you were here with me
To see the things I've done
I wish (you were here)
You would be so proud of your son
(I wish you were here)
And that's all I know to say
That's all I know to pray (to celebrate with me)
Is that I wish you were here

But sometimes I wonder why
Why can't you still be here with me?
Wish God would've waited a couple more years for you to see
I'm tryna stay strong
Barely holdin' on
I know I'll see you again, but for right now, rest in peace

And when I get to heaven
First thing they'll say to me
Tell me have you seen Estelle Marie Talley?
Find out where you are
Run into your arms
Wrap your wings around me
And whisper in my ear, well done

(I wish you were here) well, well, well done, my son
(To see the things I've done) well done, well done, oh
(I wish you were here)
(You'd be so proud of your son)
(I wish you were here)
(To celebrate with me)
(I wish you were here)
