We Know

We Know

Talib Kweli

My name is Kweli, and I like to spit it homie
I rap about love and life, ladies get to know me
If you feeling lonely, I can be your one and only
I put it out in the world, so people show me love

Yea, I always get it back
This ain't no pimp game here, that's a different track
You talking this and that, you need to get with this
I keep it realer than most, this is our business

[Chorus]
What we got to do to make them see we got a good thing on
Want to tell the world that they don't know what we have is real
Want to shout it from the mountains, baby
That I love you, but if they don't hear me
I know, you know, we know

Hey baby
Look like you need a breake tonight
Let me make it right baby, want you stay the night
I gotta lot of lovers, you know you my favourite, right

Hey my lady, what we gonna make tonight, love
That's the dream but I never sleep
Across a crowded room, our eyes forever meet
Filled up with doubt and gloom, cause we could never be

That's why I got to go, You my impossible love
You the horizon, I can see but I never ride off into
I write my lyrics to you, you're the perfect instrumental
I sound better than the cat that's rapping to you now

That's between me and you, what happens to us now, love
Got you hoping for the glorious
Waiting for that victorious feeling, wantet by all of us
Kneeling and prying that the lord and us will help us love ourselves
So much that the confidence attract someone else

[Chorus]

What we got to do to make them see we got a good thing on
Want to tell the world that they don't know what we have is real
want to shout it from the mountains, baby
That I love you, but if they don't hear me
I know, you know, we know

Rocking Los Angeles, House of Blues on Sunset
Performing like an orgasm my girl ain't even come yet
Seen her by the side of stage, giving me energy
Potential wife material

Connectet mentally, love
I felt like heaven sent for me, you're meant for me
The doubters and the haters had to acknowledge eventually
You was non-beliver too, if memory serves

On that hard to get shit play your boy for the herb
The harder that I run to you the father you become
It's like my heart was part of some movie that hadn't yet begun
This woman moves me, and I'm a mountain of a man

You pulled me in like the waves do a grain of sand
Yeah, I love the way you bring it to me
I wrote a song for you
I'd love to hear you sing it for me
And let the melody carry me through the jealousy
And we can cruise like Tom and Penelope

[Chorus]

What we got to do to make them see we got a good thing on
Want to tell the world that they don't know what we have is real
want to shout it from the mountains, baby
That I love you, but if they don't hear me
I know, you know, we know
