West, Kanye - Roses Lyrics




[Verse 1]

[Kanye West]
I know it's past visiting hours
But can I please give her these flowers
The doctor dont wanna take procedures
He claim my heart can't take the anastesia
It'll send her body into a seizure
The little thing by the hospital bed, it'll stop beeping,
Hey chick, im at a lost for words
What do you say at this time?
Remember when I was nine?
Tell her everything gone be fine?
But i'd be lying, the family crying
They want her to live, and she trying
I'm argueing like what kind of doctor can we fly in
You know the best medicine go to people thats paid,
If Magic Johnson got a cure for A.I.D.S.
And all the broke muthafuckers past away
You tellin me if my grandma was in the N.B.A.
Right now she'd be ok?
But since she was just a secretary
Working for the church
For thirty five years
Things sposed to stop right here
My grandfather tryin to pull it together, he's strong,
Thats where I get my confidence from
I asked the nurse "did you do the research?"
She ask me, "can you sign some t-shirts?"
Bitch is you smokin reefer?
You dont see that we hurt
But still...

[Chorus]

...I smile
When roses come to see me
And I can't wait for a sunny day
(Im seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break

[Verse 2]

[Kanye West]
They outside of the emergency room, room
You can feel my heart beat, beat, beat
If she gone pull through
We gone find out soon
But right now she sleep, sleep, sleep
My mama say, they say she could pass away any day
Hey chick what these doctors know anyway
Let me see the X-rays
I ain't no expert, I'm just hurt
Cousin Kim took off for work
Plus my Aunt Shirley, Aunt Beverly, Aunt Claire and Aunt Jean
So many Aunties, we could have an Auntie team
Feel like Amerie "Its this one thing"
When they said that she made it
You see the eyes gleam
I think we at an all time high
To get there we run, we fly, we drive
Coz with my family we know where home is
So instead of sending flowers
We the roses...

[Chorus]

I smile
When roses come to see me
And I can't wait for a sunny day
(Im seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break

Who brings the sunshine?

Ohhhhh I smile
When roses come to see me
And I can't wait for a sunny day
(Im seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to breaK

Hey, chick, I'm at a loss for words

You know the best medicine go to people that's paid
If Magic Johnson got a cure for AIDS
And all the broke motherfuckers passed away
You telling me if my grandma's in the NBA
Right now she'd be okay?
    But since she was just a secretary
    Worked for the church for 35 years
Things 'sposed to stop right here
My grandfather tryin' to pull it together, he's strong

Bitch, is you smokin reefer?
You don't see that we hurt? But still

I smile, when Rosie comes to see me
And I can't wait for a sunny day (seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break

[Kanye West]
They outside of the emergency room, room
You can feel my heartbeat, beat, beat
If she gon' pull through, we gon' find out soon
But right now she asleep, sleep, sleep

And I can't wait for a sunny day (seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break

Oh, Rosie brings the sunshine, oh

I smile, when Rosie comes to see me
And I can't wait for a sunny day (seeing it through your eyes)
Can't wait for the clouds to break

[Bill Withers & Patti LaBelle]
I, smile, when Rosie come to see me
And I'm sad, when Rosie goes away
Oh Rosie brings the sunshine (say)

[Patti LaBelle]
Can't wait, I can't wait, no
Can't wait, I can't wait, no
Can't wait, I, can't wait
No, can't wait, for, for a sunny day
Momma can't wait, for the clouds to break
Mm mmm mm mm-mm mm-mm
Oh oh oh oh no no, say
Tellin' you the truth now
Said I can't wait, uh-uh
I won't wait, no

    Back before Kanye was my favorite Artist & I didn’t understand his contribution to the game... I still liked some of his songs/Big charting singles. I use to play this song religiously on my PSP back in the day, this & Touch The Sky. He was the first Artist that displayed the reality that it’s okay to be yourself, & made music about real every day issues. Once I understood that, he became my favorite artist. Late Registration & MBDTF will always be my favorite albums by him.

  45. Aneese Hamudi

    Maybe he is just greedy and realizes Christians will LITERALLY buy any fucking thing that THEY approve of. Kanye is part time crazy but now full time pussy for turning his back on the fans that made him a millionaire

    Brotosaurus

    Kanye is rapping bout christianity rn cuz thats his current state of mind

  46. Aneese Hamudi

    I rruly wish yoko kardashian didn't fuck kanyes mind up so bad that he basically lost his loyal fan base completely

  58. Magnus Little

    Kanye is clearly making the case for Medicare for All.
    Why should you die because you can't afford treatment?

  59. nightshift55555

    Late Registration is Kanye’s most complete album besides MBDTF. The album knows when to change tone. Like going from crack music to roses, complete mood change.

    3. Graduation
    4. 808s
    5. TCDO
    6. TLOP
    7. Yeezus
    8. WTT
    9. KSG
