MC Prototype
“Her Voice” ft. SuperB & Simone Ledward

SuperB:
I still hear your voice in every word I speak
I still see your face in every smile I see
And I hope I made you proud
And when you hear this sound
Know it’s just my way of saying I miss you


It was a cold day
Mid November
Checked the mailbox
Return to sender
I don't get it
Checked your address twice
Sent text message, emails, and still no reply
I'm feeling ignored, feelings destroyed
I'm missing your smile
Where did I go wrong? Can't figure it out
My eyes heavy, taste the salt in my tears
Exhausted but often I talk to you still
Hold on to memories tight like a kid that don't share
And praying to the Lord that the Lord answers prayers
And bring you back like a prosthetic spine
The soundtrack is Mike Jack's remember the time
Had to remix it cuz I remember you mine
Then I relive it, reminiscing rewind
Back to my younger years
I swore your basement had ghosts but I held in the fear
I miss you

SuperB:
I still hear your voice in every word I speak
I still see your face in every smile I see
And I hope I made you proud
And when you hear this sound
Know it’s just my way of saying I miss you

Pro:
I remember calling your house asking for moms
You picked up the phone said hello and asked who was calling
I said it's William your grandson Biddy's kid
And you replied I don't know no William
I felt my heart break
It felt like time stopped
Why did Alzheimer's pick my grandma?
Was a teenager dealing with emotions I could barely spell
I doubted God
Thought the bible was a fairy tale

SuperB:
And sometimes I can’t breathe
Knowing you’re not with me
I still can’t believe that you’re not here beside me

Pro:
When your hero dies
Who's second in command?
No one’s qualified
I guess I have high demands
Close to 20 years passed but barely out of denial
I know you're in the clouds
Hope you're proud of me now
I miss you

SuperB:
I still hear your voice in every word I speak
And I still see your face in every smile I see
And I hope I made you proud
And when you hear this sound
Know it’s just my way of saying I miss you

Simone:
And I think of all the lessons that you taught me
That you're the only reason I am the woman I came to be
You said even the dimmest stars in heaven gotta shine
Pointed to the sky
Showed me which one was mine
And I miss you
Some nights I can't take the pain
'Cause I miss you
Swear I can hear you say,
"Don't cry,
Baby let me dry those eyes.
It’s ok. It’s okay."
I miss you
