Africa - Lyrics by D'angelo


Africa is my descent
And here i am far from home
I dwell within a land that is meant
For many men not my tone

The blood of god is my defense
Let it drop down to my seed
Showers to your innocense
To protect u for all eternity
And with this wood i beat this drum
And we wont see defeat

From kings to queens becomes a prince
Knowledge wisdom is
Undersdtanding what we need

Ever since the day u came
My whole world began to change
I knew then to dedicate my life
4 your own
Everday i see u grow
And remember what u already know
I recieve the love
That radiates from your glow

From which u came was love
And thats how it all should be
U adn my soul are i
Though all the time and history
