feat. Mos Def

[Mos Def]
There was this daddy long leg spider
Who spun his lyrics between the trees
And she was the fly girl who didn't see the web
And this is the story

[Jill and Mos]
Love(love rain)rain(a rain down)down
(Said what you say i say love)love(love rain)rain
(A rain down)down(I said what you say I say love)love
(a love rain)rain(a rain down)down(I say what you say)
(Brand new and live from Jill Scott)
(Making the ghetto feel hot and say what you say)
(let'em know)

[Jill]
Met him on a Thursday sunny afternoon cumulus clouds
84 degrees he was brown
Said he wanted to talk about my mission
Listen to my past lives...Word!
Took me on long walks to places where butterflies rest
easy, talked about Moses and Mumia
Reparations, blue colors and memories of the shell
tops
Aww yeah yeah he was fresh
Like summer peaches sweet on my mind like block
parties
and penny candy oh oh

Chorus

[Jill]
The rain was falling slowly and sweetly
And stinging my eyes and I could not see that
He became my voodoo priest and I his faithful
concubine
Oh oh oh oh (Mos chanting in African dialect)
Wide open wide the mistake was made
(Don't front, you know I got you open)
Love slipped from my lips, dripped down my chin
And landed in his lap and us became brand new
And the sky was blue

Chorus

[Mos]
It was half past dusk, you were rocking black musk
When your chariot stop low I made the clock wind slow
Grabbed my hips, curled a kiss across my lips
Like a whisper (damn)
Blue Train title track playing on the system
Listen "la da di da da"
It's John C you hum the melody in pitch and on key
You was my quiet storm water sign
Pushed me to the borderline
Love that rumbled all the time
Kept my senses on the grind, sweeter than some foreign
wine
The original raw
Branded sweet like a cinnamon straw
You was my hardest distraction
My bombest distraction, my deepest inspiration
My heat, my frustration
But you diff from before you wasn't rifting before
"I want that old thing back" baby gimme some more
When clouds huddle in the sky
And tears well in your eye just...

[Jill and Mos]
(Hold on to the moment love)
yes, you broke me but I'm human
(Even now that it's over love)
(Remember how it was over love, how deep we was
overcome)Mending myself, love concealing
(Just remember the moment love, you ? then blow me up)
The pain(just hold on to the moment love)love rain
(Remember how we was over love?) love rain
(Remember how we was overcome?) love rain

Repeat Jill Scotts verse
[Mos]
Just hold on to the moment love
I'ma do what I got to do
At night I still get hot for you
With this ? that I got for you
Just remember the moment love
Remember how we was over love
Shouldn't that just be enough
Shouldn't that just be enough

[Jill]
Yes, you broke me down

[Mos]
You got to rock with that
You got to rock with that
Jill Scott non stop with that
Said you got to rock with that
Make your shoulders neck back rock with that
Said you got to rock with that
Get up and do the diddly bop with that
Said you got to rock with that
Let it get up in your shoulders and bop with that
Said you got to rock with that
Get up in your necks and bounce with that

. . .


[Chorus - (J. Scott)]
Daydream (daydream)
I fell asleep beneath the flowers (I fell asleep beneath the flowers)
For a couple of hours (for a couple of hours)
On a beautiful day (on a beautiful day)
Daydream (daydream)
I dream of you amid the flowers (I dream of you amid the flowers)
For a couple of hours (for a couple of hours)
Such a beautiful day (such a beautiful - daaaaaaaay)

[Verse 1]
As I spy from behind my giant robot's eyes
I keep him happy 'cause I might fall out if he cries
Scared of heights so I might pass out if he flies
Keep him on autopilot 'cause I can't drive
Room enough for one I tell my homies they can't ride
Unless they sittin on the shoulders but that's way too high
Let's try not to step on the children
The news cameras filmin
This walkin project buildin
Now there's hoes sellin hoes like right around the toes
And the crackheads beg at about the lower leg
There's crooked police that's stationed at the knees
And they do drive-bys like up and down the thighs
And there's a car chase goin on at the waist
Keep a vest on my chest
I'm sittin in my room as I'm lookin out the face
Somethin to write about
I still got some damage from fightin the whitehouse, just a

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Now come on everybody, let's make cocaine cool
We need a few more half naked women up in the pool
And hold this MAC-10 that's all covered in jewels
And can you please put your titties closer to the 22s?
And where's the champagne? We need champagne
Now look as hard as you can with this blunt in your hand
And now hold up your chain slow motion through the flames
Now cue the smoke machines and the simulated rain
But not too loud 'cause the baby's sleepin
I wonder if it knows what the world is keepin
Up both sleeves while he lay there dreamin
Me and my robot tip-toe 'round creepin
I had to turn my back on what got you paid
I couldn't see half the hood on me like Abu Ghraib
But I'd like to thank the streets that drove me crazy
And all the televisions out there that raised me, I was

[Chours x2]

Good morning heartache, you old gloorny sight
Good morning heartache, though we said goodbye last night
I tossed and turned until it seemed you had gone
But there you are with the dawn

Wish I'd forget you, but you're here to stay
It seems I met you when my love went away
Now everyday I start by saying to you
Good morning heartache what's new

Stop haunting me now, can't shake you know how
Just leave me alone, I've got those Monday blues
Straight to Sunday blues, look what you did to me

Good morning heartache, here we go again
Good morning heartache, you're the one who'll know me well
Might as well get used to you hanging around
Good morning heartache, good morning heartache, good morning, sit down

Just know if you're gonna stay
Heartache you're gonna have to get a job
'Cause mummy's got bills to pay

Okay, even you, heartache, heartache, heartache
Good morning, yeah, good morning
Even you've got bills to pay, I need my money heartache

Good morning heartache, good morning
Open the blinds, open the blinds, open the blinds
You won't do that, will you?
You don't want me to see the sunshine, ha, well, good morning

. . .

[Common]
Yeah, yo, yo, yo-yo, yo, yo
Yo, a touch of jazz y'all, yeah, yeah
? y'all, yo they got us on the run, like

[Jill Scott]
8 minutes to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (I don't know..)
Pressure is mountin
Oh baby now, how we gonna get through? (I, don't, know)
Can't go left (uh-uh) can't go right (uh-uh)
Don't know, how we made it through the night (c'mon c'mon c'mon)
7 minutes to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (Do it, do it..)

[Common]
It was once said by Black Thought that +Things Fall Apart+
Knew I shouldn't have been messin with dude's girl from start
But I pimp from the heart, the art of it made it interestin
Plus me and sister blend before we got intimate
Friend or no friend, my man caught wind
This chick is payin me, it'll either cost me or cost him
Told her she shoulda lost him (when?) a while ago
Cause dude'll drink a pile of Mo' and defile her yo
I ain't here to start on this (nigga) for me to wreck his broad
you could tell what I thought of this (nigga)
Nickname was Smoke, don't know if that was cause of cigarettes
(or what?) or guns he tote, he called shots on the deck
so I wasn't tryin to call his bluff, by his persona
you could see, he think he tough!
If that wasn't enough, old girl had his son
This is Wild like the West I'm like Jesse on the run, uhh

[Jill Scott]
6 minutes to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (I don't know..)
Pressure is mountin
Oh baby now, how we gon' get through? (I, don't, know)
Can't go left and (uh-uh) can't go right and (uh-uh)
Don't know, how we made it through the night (yo, we got..)
5 minutes to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (Do it, do it..)

[Common]
I understand that time is runnin out, I'm thinkin of town-skippin
Got a Chevy but the alternator be trippin
I'm hittin rum straight, thinkin of a route to truncate
The streets is watchin, out is one way I put myself in his Nike's
His position is, "Aight man, somebody bonin my lady"
Probably snap like Rod-man
My plan was to meet at this bar called the Tiki (when?)
'round four, when she was comin she would beep me
I sat deep in the corner, drinkin zombies, becomin one by now
Wonderin if my style would support her and her child
Out the corner of my eye saw this stud I recognized (who?)
One of Smoke's guys, to stay out of sight I tried
Told Jill Scott to meet we coulda picked a better spot
On some "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here" (shit) like Deborah Cox
Looked at my watch, (shit) I don't even got a watch
Felt for my glock, damnit I don't even got a glock, yo

[Jill Scott]
4 minutes to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (I don't know..)
Pressure is mountin
Oh baby now, how we gon' get through? (I, don't, know)
Can't go left and (uh-uh) can't go right and (uh-uh)
Don't know, how we made it through the night (c'mon c'mon)
3 minutes to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (Do it, do it..)

[Common]
Pressure puh-pressure what? The pressure's cookin
It ain't good lookin, like a black promoter I'm talkin bookin
Not that I'm spooked of dude, I could whup him
But he was on the horn informin the rest of them hoodlums (aight)
Usually I wouldn't fight over a woman, old girl had a sun-shine
was messed up, on Smoke's payroll was one-time
My pager went off, it read one line: "Come get me
from Halsted," I'm thinkin this is monkey bar [shit]
Went to the phone quick, called her (what happened?) Her line was busy
Situation number nine, got my mind dizzy
Wondered if this plan was designed to get me
I've been drinkin too strong to be thinkin too long
Like 40 goin North I'm doin 50, headed for the spot
Askin God to be with me, and lately
she has been actin shifty -- (but what?)
But then it hit me (hit me) it hit me (hit me)
It hit me (hit me) it hit me

[Jill Scott]
2 minutes to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (I don't know..)
Pressure is mountin
Oh baby now, how we gonna get through? (Yo -- I said I, don't, know)
Can't go left and (uh-uh) can't go right and (nope)
Don't know, how we made it through the night (yo, we got)
1 minute to sunrise
Oh baby now, what are we gonna do? (one-one, one.. ha?)
1 minute.. (we got, we got) one, one
1 minute.. (ahh shit, we got) one, one
1 minute.. (what we got girl?) one, one
1 minute.. (baby, Com Sense on the run) now, now
1 minute.. (Com Sense on the run) one..
1 minute.. (just got on the run, just got on the run)
(Com Sense on the run, Com Sense on the run)
(just got on the run, just got on the run)
(they got us on the run like.. they got us on the run)
(they got us on the.. yo, they got us on the run)
(uhh, yo, they got us on the run)
(they got us on the.. yo, they got us on the run)
(and we out..)

Chorus: Bilal, Jill Scott

Alright.....Okay [4X']
Alright......We'll make it funky for you now

[Common]
I'm a child of the ahh - The 87 ahh
From the streets - Get on a beat and go ahh
I could break it down like whatever ya ahh
On some K-R-S be here forever type unh
You-you-you-you know you shouldn't rhyme like unh
Let them pussy niggas get in your mind like unh
Baby boy you could do it take your time do it....
If you get the chance
To be a man in a b-boy stance and advanced from the go
I'll trace outer space with a unh
The baby-sitter of styles - I've traveled miles with
bitches and....I've traveled miles with.....
I've traveled miles with bitches and brew the ritual
of the real unh
Your platinum but real unh's don't feel you
You sampled real unh's and then filtered
I'm built to last - at last I'm free
The Roots and SV be the family tree
SV and the Roots be the family tree
The Roots and SV and the tree is unh
Come on

Chorus;

Baby girl let's go half on a child for the ohhh
Lick shot's pop lock and blaow for the oohh

You talkin' loud but ain't sayin' ohhh
Trickin' paper on a unh... Captain Save-a-ohhh
I've never been.. the type of nigga..
to take.. a broad to the courts
As a shorty I was always into sports
Now I talk to drums and walk in slums and thoughts that's ohhh
Instinct to hustle-divided by the struggle
Plus a couple of scuffle's and up to high shuffle
Even when it sound muffled..
I bust through.. narrow gates..
with king-sized thoughts that's sparrow shaped
Before I came up I had to elevate
Let a nigga move where he wanna move up to
You don't like how I'm livin... well fuck ohhh
I stuck to what I was on... a star is born on a cusp
Many angel's fell to the dust
Leavin' me to trust... only a ohhh
Leavin' me to trust y'all only a ohhh
Leavin' me to trust in a - ahh ohhh ohhh ohhh

Yo

Chorus: repeat 4X
As long as it's funky [yeah]

Let your.. imagination.. dance to the..
Dance to the.. dance to the hey
Like nobody's watchin in a b-boy stance to the hey
I'm funky like Africans in France to the hey
Yo hey.. kick in the bass you..
Chasin paper like a bitch in a race
Spit on or death, I still ain't picked up the ace
The hundred.. styles I run with thick in the race
So let's ohhh.. yeah unh hunh

Da Da da da da da....

Every time I see you (I see you)

Your loving let's me know that I'm the only one
And I hear you:

Sometimes I wonder (I wonder how you got so good)
Sometimes I wonder (I wonder how you got so good)
Sometimes I wonder (Wonder how you got so good)
Sometimes I wonder, baby, wonder, baby

Lovin' you is like my dream come true
I want you to know that I'll always be there standing up for you
From the mountain

From the root to the to the, baby

Sometimes I wonder (I wonder how you got so good)
Sometimes I wonder (I wonder how you got so good)
Sometimes I wonder (Wonder how you got so good)
Sometimes I wonder, baby, wonder, baby

When I look in to the mirror (What do you see)
I see me and I see you (And how are we)
Joined from the soul
Our hearts together
Just living together in melody baby

Sometimes I wonder (I wonder how we got so good)
Sometimes I wonder (I wonder how wegot so good)
Sometimes I wonder (Wonder how we got so good)
Sometimes I wonder, baby, wonder, baby

Living together in melody
In melody
In harmony
In melody
In harmony
In melody, baby
In harmony

We just got this good
In melody
In harmony

[Chorus: Jill Scott]
The little rain drops fallin' down on me
But I can't seem to feel it, feel it
Feel it coming over me

[Will Smith]
The rain gon' come through the window, pain will come
Black, white, rich, poor, it's the same old drum
Rainy days like the war, use wisdom as a weapon
Hold your head up, dry your clothes and keep steppin'
Let the children feel the rain, 'cause if they feel the rain
>From the wetness, they stand to gain
I came into the game, it felt like the middle of June
Music was warm, artists, like flowers, they bloom
Then boom, I shook the room, many felt the thunder
My time to shine, did it like summer
I wondered if the sun would shine forever
Pops said "rain gon' come", to him I said "never"
Chedder in the genes, face on screens
Got a benz wit' the sheen, but what did it all mean
I earned money and burned money, credit cards smokin'
Platinumn, grammys, famous, but still broke and
Not having cash put me in check
Yo, the road to the riches is slippery when wet
Amongst the fall is where you truly find yourself
Ever since then, the rain I never felt
Deal wit' it

[Chorus]

[Will Smith]
At age seventeen, the worst pain, a hurrcaine
Her first name still conjuers the rain
Vowed to never let nobody ever get me wet
Lest we forget, love is a four season concept
Many say the rain they can't stand
Never let the weather determine the man
God has a plan, from it I never ran
Follow my heart through the storm, my umbrella in hand
I'm Noah, life's my arc
forty days and forty nights, still can't take my heart
Seen the fallen man
To dope and liquor brands
The devil'll dance to make it rain
Bringing the pain
Walk through the puddles of struggle on flooded streets
Soakin' wet, but mastered the art of peace
Through grey skies, I grew wise, on bended knees I knelt
Since then, the rain I never felt
What's wit' it

[Chorus]

[Will Smith]
Sometimes I sit in my room, stuff on my mind
Stress, can't rest, so I open the blinds
See kids in the streets, runnin' around
It wasn't touchin' 'em, but the rain was comin' down
I wondered how, with my mouth wide
Reminisce of the key, said I wanna go outside
In the rain, to see if the same would happen to me
'Bout that time, God started rappin' to me
He said "pain is the mother of change, the rain must flow
So the seeds of joy might grow
Don't be afraid, find shelter in me
The road to greatness, through the valley of adversity"
I felt the light as He proceeded to drop the gem
These little children, the world we must receive like them
I just smiled, and thanked Him for the cards He delt
And since then, the rain I never felt
What's wit' it

[Chorus]

. . .


Them that's god shall get
Them that's not shall lose
So the bible says
And it still is news

Momma may have
Poppa may have
But God bless the child
That's got his own
That's got his own

Yeah, the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't
Ever make the grade

Momma may have
Poppa may have
But God bless the child
That's got his own
That's got his own

Money, you've got lots of friends
Crowdin' round the door
When it's gone and
Spendin' ends
They don't come no more

Rich realations give
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much

Momma may have
Poppa may have
But God bless the child

Love rain down on me,on me,down on me(4x)

Met him on a Thursday,sunny afternoon
Cumulus clouds, 84 degrees
He was brown,deep
Said he wanted to talk about my mission
Listen to my past lives (Word?)
Took me on long walks to places where butterflies rest easy
Talked about Moses and Mumia
Reparations,blue colors,memories of shell top adidas
He was fresh,like summer peaches
Sweet on my mind like block parties and penny candy
Us was nice and warm,no jacket,no umbrella,just warm
At night we would watch the stars
And he would physically give me each and every one
I felt like cayenne pepper,red,hot,spicy
I felt Dizzy and Sonia, heaven and Miles between my
thighs
Better than love,we made delicious
He me had,had me he
He had me tongue tied
I could hear his rhythm in my thoughts
I was his sharp, his horn section
His boom and his bip
And he was my love

Love rain down on me,on me,down on me

The rain was fallin and,and slowly and sweetly and stinging
my
eyes
And I could not see that he became my voodoo priest
And I was his faithful concubine
Wide open,wide,loose like bowels after collard greens
The mistake was made
Love slipped from my lips
Dripped down my chin and landed in his lap
And us became new
Now me non-clairvoyant and in loveMade the coochie easy and the obvious invisible
The rain was falling
And I couldn't see the season changing
And the vibe slipping off it's axis
Our beautiful melody became wildly staccato
The rain was falling and I could not see
That I was to be plowed and sowed and fertilized
And left to drown in his sunny afternoon
Cumulus clouds,84 degrees,melody

Love rain down on me,on me,down on me (2x)

(Mos Def:)

I stretch my arms towards the sky like blades of tall grass,
The sun beat between my shoulders like carnaval drums.
I sat still in hopes that it would help my wings grow
So then I could really be fly.
And then she arrived.
Like daybreak inside a railway tunnel,
like the new moon,
like a diamond in the mines,
like high noon to a junker,
Sudden...
She made my heart beat in the now, now time signature,
her skin a canvas for ultra violet brush strokes.
She was the sun's painting,
she was a deep cogniac color,
her eyes sparkle like lights along the new city,
her lips purst as if her breath was too sweet and full for her mouth to hold.
I said:
"You are the beautiful distress of mathmatics,"
I said:
"For you, I will peel open the clouds like new fruit,
and give you lightning and thunder as a dowry,
I will make the sky shed all of it's stars like rain,
and I will clast the constellations across your waste,
and i will make the heavens your keep.
And they will be pleased to cover you,
they will be pleased to cover you,
May i please... cover you...

...please...
