Love Rain ((Coffee Shop Mix))

Love Rain ((Coffee Shop Mix))

Mos Def

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

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 bop
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 love
Made the coochie easy and the obvious invisible
The rain was falling
And I couldn't see the season changing
And the vibe slipping off its 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)

Wide open wide loose
The mistake was made
Love slipped from my lips
Dripped down my chin and
Landed in his lap
And us became new
Me not clairvoyant and in love
Made me the fool
You were never true
If you didn't want me
Ah you should have let me know
All you did was make a mockery of
Of something so incredible, beautiful

I honestly did love you so.....

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

(Mos Def:)

I stretch my arms towards the sky like blades of tall grass,
The sun beat between my shoulders like carnival drums.
I sat still and hoped 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 cognac color,
Her eyes fall for that lights along the new city,
Her lips purse as if her breath was too sweet and full for her mouth to hold.
I said:
"You are the beautiful distress of mathematics,"
I said:
"For you, I will peal open the clouds like new fruit,
And give you lightning and thunder as a dowry,
I will make the sky shed all of its stars like rain,
And I will cast 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...
