Lyrics to Black by The-Dream
I feel real black right now
Real black right now
I never knew you like I should've known you
But my father spoke of you through that liquor
Can we get a curtain call?
Let us pray your idea outlives you
Cause everywhere there's a Chicago
The only way we're getting out of here is if we hit the lotto
My mama left the incense burning on the dresser
A hard way to learn one lesson
She said never be impressed with a man with no message
And I'll never be Mr. Madiba
I'm gonna thank you the next time I see you
You got me feeling real black right now
Real black right now...
The oppression of a young Malcolm
And shots rang out across the balcony the day we lost a dream
To young to sing Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On"
Since then ain't been a lot going on
Enough pain can make a whole race bitter
They say the right amount of love can heal us
Reminiscing back when Hilfiger made us feel like ****as
And that's the kind of thing that sticks with you
I never felt this black...
[Hook + Bridge]
Somebody take us home
Take me home
Let's go home
Let's go home
