Dedication: Rest In Heaven, Willie B. Sorrell <3

lyrics

Verse
As the wind blows by, I look up in the sky/I see an angel smiling down waving at me saying "hi"/It's my granny Willie B/On my mother side/ She told me it's okay to cry that everything'll be alright/That she's always by my side/Never let me out her sight/My mom's my angel by my side, she's my angel in the sky/I told her that I wish it wasn't this way/'Cause everyday when I awake I hope to see her face/So she can tell me that she loves me through my mistakes/And that she's proud of the young woman that I became/Told her that my life will never be the same/I'm still adjusting to her loss and now upcoming fame/I asked for advice and what I should do/She said no matter what my child, ya gotta stay true/To yourself/Through the fame, don't change/ Stay loyal to the ones that were there before you got a bigger name/ The reason why I haven't came is 'cause you're still feeling the pain/I know that every since that day/ Everything became so strange/It was for me, too/Never wanted to leave you but like what's best for me ya gotta do what's best for you/For that it was my time and your time is coming, too/For you to become a star doing what you were blessed to do/So no matter where you go, just know that I gotcha/And no matter what they say no one can ever stop ya/I told her that I hear her/I wish that she was nearer/And even though I miss her/Sometimes I just can feel her/Told her I get it/Told her that I'm listening/That ima stay committed even though a piece is missing/And when I go through trials promise ima still get it so get ready to wrap me in your wings and tell me that I did it/I did it/Because of you I stayed with it/With it/ For you I did it/I did it/I did it/Because of you, I did it/Because of you I stayed with it/Because of you/I did it, I did it/Yeah

Hook
My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/My superstar/My angel/My shining star/My angel/Yeah, yeah, yeah
My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/That's what you are/My angel/My shining star/My angel/My superstar/My angel/My shining star/My angel/Yeah, yeah, yeah
