Day 322- I’ll Be Missing You

Yesterday I was messing around with my iPod trying to find some music to play.  Somehow the song “I’ll Be Missing You” by Puff Daddy came up. I have approximately 14,000 songs- exactly one by Puff Daddy.  I couldn’t remember which song this was until I clicked on it to play it.  Ah… yeah that song. I love that song.  

This morning I was on Facebook and saw a website that plays every number one song every day from 1958 to 2016.  Pretty cool. I clicked on it. For some reason, it started in 1997 and guess what the first song was up on the rotation? Yep.  “I’ll Be Missing You”

Side note:  two days ago I was flipping through channels and ran across a Nicole Kidman movie playing. I had never heard of it or seen it and I love Nicole Kidman, so I stopped to watch it, something I hardly ever do- just randomly start watching a movie because I happen to flip through and see it.  The next day as I’m on Facebook one of the first things I see is a video posted by a friend of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.

Back to “I’ll Be Missing You”.  I’ve been in a funk lately and needing something from Shayna. When this song popped up two days in a row, I figured I needed to listen to it, so I did on my walk this morning.  Here are the lyrics. 

Every day I wake up
I hope I’m dreamin
I cant believe this shit
Cant believe you ain’t here
Sometimes its just hard for a nigga to wake up
Its hard to just keep goin
Its like I feel empty inside without you bein here
I would do anything man, to bring you back
I’d give all this shit, shit the whole knot
I saw your son today
He look just like you
You was the greatest
Youll always be the greatest
I miss you big
Cant wait til that day, when I see your face again
I cant wait til that day, when I see your face again…

Yeah… this right here (tell me why)
Goes out, to everyone, that has lost someone
That they truly loved (cmon, check it out)

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hangin on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that
Life aint always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words cant express what you mean to me
Even though youre gone, we still a team
Through your family, Ill fulfill your dream (thats right)
In the future, cant wait to see
If you open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When its real, feelings hard to conceal
Cant imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
Ill be missing you
Thinkin of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
Ill be missing you

I miss you big

Its kinda hard with you not around (yeah)
Know you in heaven smilin down (eheh)
Watchin us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Til the day we meet again
In my heart is where Ill keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need (uh-huh) to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts big I just cant define (cant define)
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Us in the 6, shop for new clothes and kicks
You and me taking flicks
Makin hits, stages they receive you on
I still cant believe youre gone (cant believe youre gone)
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living youre life, after death

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
Ill be missing you
Thinkin of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
Ill be missing you

somebody tell me why

Interlude: faith evans

On that morning
When this life is over
I know
Ill see your face

Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
Every night I pray, every step I take
every day that passes
Every move I make, every single day
is a day that I get closer
to seeing you again
Every night I pray, every step I take
we miss you big… and we wont stop
Every move I make, every single day
cause we cant stop… thats right
Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
we miss you big
