a long walk lyrics – jill scott

you’re here
i’m pleased
i really dig your company
your style, your smile,
your peace mentality
lord, have mercy on me
i was blind, now i can see
what a king’s supposed to be,
baby, i feel free, come on and go with me

let’s take a long walk,
around the park, after dark
find a spot for us to spark
conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
share our situations,
temptations, education, relaxations,
elevations
maybe we can talk about surah 31: 18

your background, it ain’t squeaky clean
sh*t, sometimes we all gotta swim upstream
you ain’t no saint, we all are sinners,
but you put your good foot down to make your soul the winner
i respect that
man you’re so phat,
and you’re all that
plus supreme
then you’re humble
man i’m numb yo,
with feelin’
i can feel everything that you bring

let’s take a long walk,
around the park, after dark
find a spot for us to spark
conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
share our situations,
temptations, education, relaxations,
elevations
maybe we can talk about revelations 3: 17

or maybe we can see a movie
or maybe we can see a play
on sat*rday
or maybe we can roll a tree
and feel the breeze
and listen to a symphony
or maybe chill and just be
or maybe
maybe we can take a cruise
and listen to the roots
or maybe eat some p*ssion fruit
or maybe, cry to the blues
or maybe we could just be silent…
come on
come on

let’s take a long walk,
around the park, after dark
find a spot for us to spark
conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
share our situations,
temptations, education, relaxations,
elevations
maybe we can talk about psalms in entirety

let’s take a long walk,
around the park, after dark
find a spot for us to spark
conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
share our situations,
temptations, education, relaxations,
elevations
maybe we can talk about psalms in entirety

or maybe we can see a movie
or maybe we can see a play
on sat*rday
or maybe we can roll a tree
and feel the breeze
and listen to a symphony
or maybe we can chill and just be
or maybe
maybe we can take a cruise
and listen to the roots
or maybe eat some p*ssion fruit
or maybe, cry to the blues
or maybe we could just be silent…
come on

let’s take a long walk,
around the park, after dark
find a spot for us to spark
conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
share our situations,
temptations, education, relaxations,
elevations
maybe baby,
maybe we can save the nation
come on
come on…
