[Kweli] Tell the world
[Mos Def] I dreamt that I could paint you in words But there were no colors, bright enough Black or white enough Blue or green enough It didn't mean enough You are the star to touch the earth Shine bright for all eyes to see, Radiate and touch me Now I'm shining like you do It was dim before I knew you Bright light for weeping eyes to get used to Trust who? That's some shit I had to adjust to Soon as you relax they ease back and cold bust you Love murdered in Brooklyn, sound the alarm But you still remain calm My passion is unarmed I try to practice my warlike tactics But in your clutch, in your touch My armor, just collapses Such bliss breeds obliviousness I recollect sweet breath still wet on my lips My prayers this: God protect my beloved And keep her covered From the valley to the summit Like the land undiscovered Like the stars outnumbered, you are so beautiful.
[Chorus:] background singers [kweli & Mos Def]
Beautiful [I'm doing my best so I can be true to you] On your knees [aint nothin in this world I wouldn't do for you] In my life [you're my everything more than ever and usual] On my feet [like the stars outnumbered you are so beautiful] Beautiful [you shine so very far from where I stand] Come to me [from a distant land understand who I am] Down again, we can wash it over me.]
You know what! They say that beauty's in the eye of the beholder So I use my third, and now our love is solid like a boulder Wanna build with you as I get older, and that's my word Sure as I stand on my ancestor's shoulders You see through my drama and my world like a stage Not the same years but livin in the same age Its the kwelity not the quantity Follow me Def-in-ate-ly, Far from probably. Got to be, you and me Beau-ti-ful-ly fit, Like pieces of a man I used to be Now I'm back because of what you do to me You're like my reflection The better half to my whole Like lyrics to the beat You're the mate for my soul The breath for my life, my sister and my lover Used to have cold feet, now you're the warmth under my covers I can't ignore your aura because it grab me by the hand Like the moon pull the tide (mos & kweli)and the tide pull the sand
(2nd chorus) [mos & kweli] [go head baby baby sing that song what] Ooooooooh [alright, yeah, we feelin it, go ] Soooo beautiful [go head baby baby sing that song] That dream that'll be, so beautiful [alright, yeah, we feelin it, go ] [go head]*fades out* I wanna say ohhh clearly, that I love you, aloud Oooooh the love you give, all the love you give to me Ooh Ooooooh my days and niiiiights were lonely And it's soooo beautiful I know I have a friend that I can talk to yeaaah Ohh you're so beautiful.
(mos def & Kweli) ... Note: they switch off after a few bars, and trade it back and forth. You'll get the idea if you listen to the song.....
