  • 'As I lay me down to sleep
    I hear her speak to me

    Hello 'Mari, how ya doin'?
    I think the storm ran out of rain, the clouds are movin'
    I know you're happy, 'cause I can see it
    So tell the voice inside ya head to believe it
    I talked to God about you, he said he sent you an angel
    And 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's right inside you
    So I can say

    Hello my only one, just like the mornin' sun
    You'll keep on risin' 'til the sky knows your name
    Hello my only one, remember who you are
    No you're not perfect but you're not your mistakes

    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Oh the good outweighs the bad even on your worst day
    Remember how 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 though I didn't pick the day to turn the page
    I know it's not the end every time I see her face, and I hear you say

    Hello my only one, remember who you are
    You got the world 'cause you got love in your hands
    And you're still my chosen one
    So can you understand? One day you'll understand

    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

    Hello my only one, just like the mornin' sun
    You'll keep on risin' 'til the sky knows your name
    And you're still my chosen one, remember who you are
    No you're not perfect but you're not your mistakes

    Hey, hey, hey, hey
    Tell Nori about me, tell Nori ab-
    I just want you to do me a favor
    Tell Nori about me, tell Nori about me Writer/s: NOAH D. GOLDSTEIN, MICHAEL DEAN, KIRBY LAUREN DOCKERY, PAUL JAMES MCCARTNEY, KANYE WEST
