"Black Messiah" (2014) (with THE VANGUARD)

Ain't That Easy lyrics - D'Angelo

[Verse 1:]
Take a toke of smoke from me as you dream inside
Let your days slip away come with me and ride
My darlin'
You aren't the average kind
You need the comfort of my lovin'
To bring out the best in you
I hope that you do
See what you've given to me
Separatin', Debatin'
Stay with me that's all you gotta do

[Chorus:]
(Give yourself a chance) You can't leave me
(No way) It ain't that easy
(No way) To walk away
(Just stay) When I want you to stay, baby
(Give yourself a chance) You can't leave me
It ain't that easy
(Okay) Ow ow ow

[Verse 2:]
Ever hit with a choice that you can't decide?
Which direction left or right
Shut your mouth off and focus on what you feel inside
(See y'all know I'ma go with my vibe)
You won't believe all the things you have to sacrifice
Just to get peace of mind
And you take what they give as if it did suffice
Still it's just a waste of time
Aaah
I offer you the truth
You need the comfort of my lovin' to bring out the best in you
I wanna give you somethin' to feed your mind
Separatin', don't debate it
Faithfully we'll see this love through

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
I got just what you need, babe
All this love you'll receive, yeah
I been waitin' so long

[Verse 3:]
I tell you this sincerely
I need the comfort of your lovin'
To bring out the best in me
I'm gonna keep you
Safe from evil opinion
What I got can't duplicate it
Faithfully we'll see this love through

[Chorus]

1000 Deaths lyrics - D'Angelo

[Verse 1:]
I can't believe I can't get over my fear
They're gonna send me over the hill
Ah, the moment of truth is near
They're gonna send me over the hill
I can't believe I'm so caught up in the thrill
Ain't nothin' (And nothing's) gonna change my will
Locked and loaded up, and I know the drill
(Say know what I'm saying)
They're gonna send me over the hill
I been a witness to this game for ages
And if I stare death in face, no time to waste
But oh!

[Chorus:]
And if I charge it to the game before
Every time I slip into the unknown
Well, that's only when the spot gets blown
It's war
That is the law!
I won't nut up when we up thick in the crunch
Because a coward dies a thousand times
But a soldier only dies just once
Once, once

[Verse 2:]
Yaweh, Yehushua
He don't want no coward soldier
Aaah stick it in the golden sand
Musta didna hearda ma prayer
I receive everything that it means
And wield it victoriously
Aha, and cast out all the wickedness
(When they) send me over the hill
I was born to kill
Send me over the hill
I been a witness to this game for ages
And if I stare death in face, no time to waste
But oh!

[Chorus]

The Charade lyrics - D'Angelo

[Verse 1:]
Crawling through a systematic maze
And it pains to demise
Pain in our eyes
Strain of drownin', wading into your lies
Degradation so loud that you can't hear the sound of our cries (doo, doo)
All the dreamers have gone to the side of the road which we will lay on
Inundated by media, virtual mind fucks in streams

[Chorus:]
All we wanted was a chance to talk
'Stead we only got outlined in chalk
Feet have bled a million miles we've walked
Revealing at the end of the day, the charade

[Verse 2:]
Perpetrators beware say a prayer if you dare for the believers
With a faith at the size of a seed enough to be redeemed (doo doo)
Relegated to savages bound by the way of the deceivers
So anchors be sure that you're sure we ain't no amateurs

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
With the veil off our eyes we'll truly see
And we'll march on
And it really won't take too long
And it really won't take us very long

[Outro:]
Revealing at the end of the day, the charade
All we wanted was a chance to talk
'Stead we only got outlined in chalk
'Stead we only got outlined in chalk
Revealing at the end of the day, the charade
All we wanted was a chance to talk
Revealing at the end of the day, the charade
All we wanted was a (the charade)

Sugah Daddy lyrics - D'Angelo

[Verse 1:]
It's just the way she's so raw and uncut
She needs a spankin' to shake her up
And I just wish that I could open her up
To this deeper place of love
High priced snake skin on her arm (oooh)
Lace satin covering up her charms
You shoulda seen the way they tossed and turned
The way she made the congregation squirm

[Chorus:]
Girl's got a worldly view
Apparently she sees through you
Her love was never meant to share for two
She said I'll do it if you'll be my sugah daddy

[Verse 2:]
Take a note from my philosophy
I'ma give her what she need
Can't snatch the meat out of the lioness mouth
Sometimes you gotta just
Ease it out
I give her a pacifier
I fill my baby's crib with all the lovin' Daddy wants to give
And when it comes to rocking her to sleep, I'll never tire
This is the way I pat my baby on the butt, good God
She had me hooked with only just one glance
She need a spankin', baby, that's wussup
Lawd, Lawd
You say you wanna be the one she chooses to star in her meaningless romance

[Chorus 2:]
Girl's got a worldly view
What's a sassy girl to do
And if the decision was left up to me
You best believe that I would be her sugah daddy
Brown eyes that will make you blue
Eyes that'll see right through you
She crossed her fingers when she said her vows
She said I promise that I'll sock it to you daddy

[Verse 3:]
So I take the child to my crib
I ain't gonna tell you what we did
I hit it so I made the pussy fart
She said it's talkin' to ya, talkin to ya Daddy

Really Love lyrics - D'Angelo

When you call my name
When you love me gently
When you're walking near me
Doo doo wah I'm in really love with you, I'm in really love with you

When you look at me
I open up instantly
I fall in love so quickly
Doo doo wah I'm in really love with you, doo doo wah I'm in really love with you
I'm in really love with you

All night beside you I'd lay
I love you deep when you come to my bed
Doo doo wah, I'm in really love with you
Ooh wah, I'm in really love with you, I'm in really love with you

When you touch me there
When you make me tingle
When our nectars mingle
Doo doo wah, I'm in really love with you, I'm in really love
I'm not an easy man, to overstand, you feel me
But girl your patient with me
Doo doo wah, I'm in really love with you, I'm in really love with you

All night I wish for you here
Lay your head beside my hip
Doo doo wah, I'm in really love with you
I'm in really love with you

Doo doo wah, I'm in really love with you
I'm in really love with you
Oh how I love the little things you do
I'm in really love with you

Back To The Future (Part I) lyrics - D'Angelo

Traveling at the speed of light and then
At the same time I'm in the same spot too
The room was kept in
'Bout the same way you left it
With about the threats you mess in attitude
Where ya' been with all your grin
Until all your friends turn their backs on you
Reminiscing over what you've been missing
Could be just like cousins kissing
That's taboo

[Chorus:]
I just wanna go back, baby
Back to the way it was
I just wanna go back, baby
Back to the way it was
I used to get real high, now I
But now I'm just gettin' a buzz
I wanna go back, baby
Back to the way it was

If you win, no matter if you lose
You got to come back again
Pay some dues
Back in Richmond, shit ain't changed a bit in
Niggas with a little piss in got some attitudes
I been wondering if I can ever again
So if you're wondering about the shape I'm in
I hope it ain't my abdomen that you're referring to
This what I want you to listen to

[Bridge:]
Seasons may come and your luck just may run out
And all that you'll have is some memories, oh

[Chorus:]
Said I just wanna go back, baby
Back to the way it was, now, now, now
Back to the way it was, now, now, now
I used to get real high
Now I'm just getting' a buzz, now, now, now
I said back to the way it was, now, now, now
I just wanna go back, baby
I just wanna go back, baby
Back to the way it was, now, now, now
Back to the way it was, now, now, now
I used to get real high
Now I'm just getting' a buzz, now, now, now
Back to the way it was, now, now, now

Till It's Done (Tutu) lyrics - D'Angelo

In a world where we all circle the fiery sun
With a need for love
What have we become?
Tragedy flows unbound and there's no place to run
Till it's done
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon:
Where do we belong? Where do we come from?
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon
Till it's done

Till it's done

Carbon pollution is heating up the air
Do we really know? Do we even care?
Acid rain dripping on our trees and in our hair
Are you there?
Clock ticking backwards on things we've already built
Sons and fathers die, soldiers, daughters killed
Question ain't "do we have resources to rebuild?"
It's "do we have the will?"

Perilous dissidence evening up the score
Do we even know what we're fighting for?
Destinies crippled and thrown about on the floor
When we're waging war
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon:
Where do we belong? Where do we come from?
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon
Till it's done

Till it's done

Prayer lyrics - D'Angelo

Soul prayer, soul prayer
Hallowed be thy name
Kingdom come, will be done, oh yeah
I do... the devil on your feet
I know that he will, he will try to stop you
From seeing your days
But you got to pray all the way
'Til you get on
I believe that some day we will rise

I know that he will try to harm you
And if you can
I know that you will make it to the promised land
But you got to pray, you got pray
Oh you got to pray for redemption
Lord, keep me away from temptation
Deliver us from evil, oh yeah
And all this confusion around me
Give me peace
I believe that love...

Betray My Heart lyrics - D'Angelo

As the day must have it's sun
And the night must have it's moon
Sure as both must rise and fall
I'll be there to see you through
Just as long as there is time
I will never leave your side
And if ever that you feel
That my love is not sincere

[Chorus:]
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart

Like the breeze that blows in June
I will steady keep you cool
This I swear with all that's true
I'll take nothing in place of you
When you're feeling down, down, down
You, my soul, can depend on me
You don't ever have to fear
That my love is not sincere

[Chorus:]
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart

[Bridge:]
Through the storm, through the rain
I'll come running to ease your pain
Like the rails that cross the trains
Like the blood in your veins

[Chorus:]
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart

The Door lyrics - D'Angelo

I told you once but twice
You wasn't very nice
In your hands you held my life
I told you once but twice, my love
Don't lock yourself out that door
No, no, no
Don't lock yourself out that door

Behind a silky shade
You danced the masquerade
On a float in your parade
And on the music played
My love
Don't lock yourself out that door, no no no
Don't lock yourself out that door

I wrote a perfect song
You sang it all night long
Held your breath when you were done
And waltzed out with the sun
My love
Don't lock yourself out that door, no no no
Don't lock yourself out that door

I told you once but twice
You wasn't very nice
In your hands you held my life
I told you once but twice, my love
Don't lock yourself out that door, no, no, no
Don't lock yourself out that door

Back To The Future (Part II) lyrics - D'Angelo

I just wanna, I just wanna
I just wanna go back now
I just wanna go back now

The seasons may come and your luck may just run out
And all that you'll have is a memory, oh

The seasons may come and your luck may just run out
And all that you'll have is a memory, oh

The seasons may come and your luck may just run out
And all that you'll have is a memory, oh

The seasons may come and your luck may just run out
And all that you'll have is a memory, oh

Used to get real high
Now I'm just gettin' a buzz

Used to get real high
Now I'm just gettin' a buzz

Used to get real high
Now I'm just gettin' a buzz

Another Life lyrics - D'Angelo

How does one attempt to be
The kind of friend that you would want to keep?
I just want to say to thee
Even though it might be hard to believe
The candy-coated thoughts that drift through my sleep
Let me know it's you that holds the key
I got a craving for confection so sweet
For the taste of when our lips first meet

[Chorus:]
Oh, in another life, I bet you wouldn't know that
Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl

I just wanna take you with me
To secret rooms in the mansions of my mind
Shower you with all that you need
Take my hand, I swear I'll take my time
I'm not surprised to find that angels compete
For the chance to lay down at your feet
I'm gonna touch in all of the places that please
Pull you close
I wanna feel you breathe

[Chorus:]
Oh, in another life, I bet you wouldn't know that
Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl

It's another reason for the season
I don't wanna break your heart
Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl, Oh!

Devil's Pie lyrics - D'Angelo

[CHORUS]
Fuck the slice we want the pie
Why ask why till we fry
Watch us all stand in line
For a slice of the devil's pie
Drugs and thugs womeN wine
Three or four at a time
Watch them stand all in line
For a slice of the devil's pie

Who am I to justify
All the evil in our eye
When I myself feel the high
From all that I despise

Behind the jail or in the grave
I have to lay in this bed I made
If I die before I wake
I Hope the lord dont' hesitate
2 get 2 heaven done been through hell
Tell my peeps all is well
All them fools whose soul's 4 sale
Sitting next to the Jezebel

Demons screaming in my ear
All my anger all my fear
If I holler let them hear
In this spinning sphere

[CHORUS]

Main ingredients 2 this dish
Goes like this
Here's the list
Materialistic, greed and lust, jealousy, envious
Bread and dough, cheddar cheese, flash and stash, cash and cream
Temperatures at a high degree
Wheres niggas come 2 feast
Hell's this all about
Apocalypse ain't no doubt

Everbody's ho'ing out all the loot all the clout
Right or wrong
Do or die
Only the vengeance will pacify
Watch your back
And so will I
In these days and time

[CHORUS]

Aint no justice
It's Just us
Ashes 2 ashes
Dust 2 dust
Time has come for most of us
2 choose in which God we trust
I know I was born 2 die
Searching 2 find
Piece of mind
With eighty five dumb and blind
There can be no compromise
