[Verse 1]
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

  • happy666

    One of those superficial typical songs you can apply to everyone in love.
    Correction: So wise words

  • lubitsch lox

    actually if you read the lyrics you can see that its a song to his child written from the perspective of his mother. i think its beautiful.

  • Guest

    would you make the same comment under a song of other pop musician – who’s lyrics are equally simple – or are your astute comments reserved for Kanye West? either way, you’re a hypocrite.

    All he sing is rap. Who the he’ll cares. Hate this dick head. Looks like a idiot. He face is frozen like that all the time.

  • Elsie

    Beautiful! Also, beautiful picture of father and daughter. regardless of what the public perception of these people they are a family who love and care about each other. We all should be so lucky to be so loved

  • Deanne

    Beautiful lyrics. I would be more impressed with his love for his daughter had he chosen a decent woman to be her mother.

  • Cosmic Cow

    I like Kanye’s music too,but lately a lot of his music has been hit and miss for me.

  • princefan4life

    BEAUTIFUL!

  • VanityInsecurity

    Enter Sarcasm here: Yes God like lyrics from a God himself!

  • chong

    You kidding me you fool? It’s not a love song at all. It’s a song from the perspective of his dead mother singing about his daughter.

  • happy666

    Yeah, somebody told me his mother was a prestigeous teacher with degrees but that she died while having one of her plastic surgery procedures. Strange…

    Anyone who hates this guy after hearing this, well..I have no words. Anyone who has lost a parent before having kids or even getting married..they get it.

  • https://www.meltdownchallenge.com/challengedashboard/challengeinformation/1619/MTMyMDU%3D Angela

    Doesn’t matter who the mother of his child is, he still feels the way he does. It’s beautiful.

  • Deanne

    I agree that his sentiments are beautiful. However, he has put his child at a distinct advantage by choosing a woman who, at least now, is a less than stellar parent.
    I’m not a huge Kanye fan but I do think he loves his child. Kim, on the other hand, treats her like a prop. Sad
