Hey y'all
I feel good, right?
Yeah, ok
Now what that make me talk about? Love
Yeah, that's what the world need, ha
Yo, that's what your girl need
Alright, we gon' put it down like this
I'll tell you about myself

My name is Kweli, and I like to spit it homie
I rap about love and life, ladies get to know me
If you feeling lonely, I could be your one and only
I put it out in the world, so people show me love
Yeah, I always get it back
This ain't no pimp game here, thats a different track
You talking this and that, you need to get with this
I keep it realer than most, this is our business

What we gotta do to make them see
We got a good thing going on
Wanna tell the world if they don't know
That what we have is real
Wanna shout it from the mountains baby
That I love you, but if they don't hear me
I know, you know, we know

Yeah, yo, hey baby, look like you need a break tonight
Let me make it right, baby won't you stay the night
I got a lot of love as you know you're my favorite, right?
Hey my lady, what we gon' make tonight
That's the dream, but I never sleep
Across the crowded room, our eyes forever meet
But without doubt and gloom, 'cuz we can never be
That's why I got to go, you're my impossible love

Your the horizon, I can see but never ride off into
I write my lyrics to you, you the perfect instrumental
I sound better than the cat who rappin' to you now
That's between me and you, what happened to us now?
Got you hopin' for the glorious
Waitin' for that victorious feelin', wanted by all of us
Kneelin' and praying that the Lord in us will help us love ourselves
So much that the confidence attract to someone else

What we gotta do to make them see
We got a good thing going on
Wanna tell the world if they don't know
That what we have is real
Wanna shout it from the mountains baby
That I love you, but if they don't hear me
I know, you know, we know

Yo, rockin' Los Angeles, house of blues in sunset
Performin' like an orgasm, my girl ain't even cum yet
Seen her by the side of the stage givin' me energy
Potentially, wife material connectin' mentally
I felt like Heaven sent for me, you're meant for me
The doubters and the haters had to acknowledge eventually
You was a non-believer too if memory serves
And a heart that gives shit, tryin' to play your boy for the her

The harder that I run to you, the farther you become
It's like my heart was part of some movie, that hadn't yet begun
This woman moves me and I'm a mountain of a man
You pull me in like the waves do the grain of sand
Yeah, I love the way you bring it to me
I wrote a song for you, I love to hear you to sing it for me
And let the melody carry me through the jealousy
And we can cruise like Tom and Phenelope

What we gotta do to make them see
We got a good thing going on
Wanna tell the world if they don't know
That what we have is real
Wanna shout it from the mountains baby
That I love you, but if they don't hear me
I know, you know, we know

What we gotta do to make them see
We got a good thing going on
Wanna tell the world if they don't know
That what we have is real
Wanna shout it from the mountains baby
That I love you, but if they don't hear me
I know, you know, we know
