Tell her everything gon' be fine, but I be lyin'
Her family cryin', they want her to live, and she tryin'

Meaning

He wants to tell his grandma that shes gonna be fine but he knows and she knows that it would just be a lie (or so they think at this point — Kanye’s grandmother actually did survive this incident). All of Kanye’s family wants her to live and they’re so scared that she’s gonna die that they’re crying while his grandma is trying her best to fight on and survive.
