Isaac Hayes lyrics - Shaft Soundtrack

Soulsville

Original and similar lyrics
Black man, born free, At least that's the way it's supposed to be; The chains that bind him are hard to see, Unless you take this walk with me; The place where he lives, God, he gives them names … The ‘Hood, ‘The Projects, ‘The Ghetto; they are one and the same; And I call it “Soulsville' ah, yeah. Any kind of job is hard to find, That means an increase in the welfare line; The crime rate is rising too, but If you are hungry, what would you do? The rent is two months past due, in a building that's falling apart, Little boy needs a new pair of shoes, and this is only a part of … Soulsville Some of the brothers' got plenty of cash, tricks on the corner is going to see to that, Some like to smoke and some like to blow, some are even strung out on a $50 jones Trying to ditch reality, by getting so, high, Only to find out, that you can never reach the sky, ‘because your roots are in …Soulsville Oh, yes they are. Every Sunday morning, I can hear the church sisters sing “Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Trusting the Lord to make a way, oh yeah; I hope that He hears their prayers, because deep in their souls they believe, Someday He'll put an end to all this misery that we have in …Soulsville All yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Hmmmmmmmmm

feat. El Shaber [AZ] Yeah.. this is it right here.. this defines me.. Turn my mic up.. let's do it, let's do it.. Spirit of Marcus Garvey, Farad Muhammad Medgar Evars and Bob Marley, I'm God-Body The scripture says Allah's inside me, show love I was hugged by the arms of Gandhi, gave me my strength You could tell somebody raised me with sense We all need somethin to help us through our daily events Bear with me; the toughest niggaz tear quickly No lie - pops still cry and he near fifty - freedom or death I give niggaz a reason to sweat, there's no test Verbally it's like I'm seen as the best, who wanna try me? (Yeahhhhhhh, yeah-e-yeah.. I'm back!) [AZ] Sent to express grace Seperate the weaker niggaz is the best way, fuck how y'all feel Y'all cowards now fuckin with real I return like McGrady got caught with a pill, let's get it poppin I move like a nigga coppin I know the stress from the streets when I was diddy-boppin Playin the corners face to face with the faces of mourners It's hard to trace the informers until it's too late, Jake (?) The focus is back, I play a part in this culture of rap Bought some whips so I relate on how these vultures attack Flippin and runnin, double-park, rippin up summons How many niggaz hittin twin sisters and flippin they cousins? Call it finesse, the game give it all I posess Nothin changed, I'ma ball to the death (Yeahhhhhhh, yeah-e-yeah.. I'm back!) [El Shaber] Yeah, that's right Show these cats how we do this here nigga I'm like a, rose in the desert but how can one grow without rain? How can one experience happiness without pain? And how could I fall to the violence of hell and still remain sane? And how could I still remain on top of my game? When both the black and white devils seek the power to rebel Seek to defy my radiance, I shift gears to another level I'm focused, but it's like I'm playin a cold hand of spades I got a lot of hearts, but these fools tryin to cut me and I'm tired of these jokers Vengeance is mine, I plague the whole planet with locusts I survived the mayhem, my advantage I've been the brokest I wasn't drugged and inhaled by all the smokers Then I became the love absorbed by all the cultures I can't trust women because my heart was scorned It's hard to trust yo' comrades, when yo' heart was torn One-nine-seven-oh the God was born.. (Yeahhhhhhh, yeah-e-yeah.. I'm back!)

Forgiveness

KENNY LATTIMORE "Kenny Lattimore"
(Chorus) Can we find forgiveness In the throws of our misunderstanding or do we fall apart Can we find forgiveness Or do we go on like this Trying to cover up a broken heart (Verse1) Mmh…I made a mistake and I wanna know Can you ever forgive me or do we go Down in the flames of a broken love If I ever really meant much to you Then it wouldn't make much sense for you to Turn your back and walk away from us (Hook 1) What about me What about you What about love What do we do What of my heart What of my heart I'm asking you now Begging you, please tell me (Chorus) (Verse 2) I wonder has there ever been anyone To go as for as we've come And never mention of a hurting thing This episode before us Shouldn't overcome what we've got So let's move on and get to better days (Hook 2) For all we know For all we know We could be the best Oh, yeah… We'll never know Don't take the chance So from right new So from today ooh.., yeah, yeah… Let's make a vow Whatever was wrong It's over right now Will you forgive me (Chorus) Can we find understanding Can we find Can we find…, or do we go… (Bridge) Tell me now will we let this go I need to know I need to know Please tell me so Right now, baby I've dedicated all my love to you Don't let it end tonight… (Chorus/Fade Out)

Smells Like Thirtysomething Spirit

Apologetix
Load up on grunge and be depressed It's fun to do for two minutes There's no award for self absorbed Before you know you're 34 You're old, you're old, you're old, how old Man, it's nice out, and this day is Made by God, now, celebrate it Life is too brief, let's complain less You Nirvana imitators Look at Dave Grohl, for example Now he's cheerful, like the Beatles – yeah! Now worship's not what I do best It's hardest if I feel depressed But when I do exalt His name It always helps to kill the pain Hallel, hallel, hallel, hallel We're alive now, and this day is Made by God now, and we're plain blessed Don't be stupid couch potatoes You're not Elvis in Las Vegas Try to not go avocado Try to be mo' jalapeno – yeah! And I forget things while I praise Oh, yeah, His blessings make me smile I've found it's hard – it's hard to whine And yell with Heaven on mind Hallel, hallel, hallel, hallel When we're wiped out, and this day gets Very hard now, and it drains us I've ready through this in Isaiah Wait on God now, and He'll take us From the bottom of the barrel To the ski slopes, fly like eagles Jeremiah 29 the ‘leventh line does Let us smile ‘cause better times are set to find us Never mind Doug, Wendy Whiner – get on fire!

Never Ever

ALL SAINTS "All Saints"
A few questions that I need to know, how you could ever hurt me so, I need to know what I've done wrong, and how long it's been going on, Was it that I never paid enough attention? Or did I not give not affection? Not only will your answers keep me sane but I'll know never to make the same mistake again. You can tell me to my face or even on the phone. You can write it in a letter, either way, I have to know. Did I never treat you right? Did I always start the fight? Either way, I'm going out of my mind, all the answers to my questions, I have to find. My head's spinning, boy, I'm in a daze, I feel isolated, don't wanna communicate, I'll take a shower, I will scour, I will run..... To find peace of mind, the happy mind,I once owned, yeah. vocabulary runs right through me, the alphabet runs right from A to Z, Conversations, hesitations in my mind, You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find, I'm not crazy, I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong, I'm just waiting, 'cause I heard this feeling won't last that long. Never Ever have I ever felt so low, When you gonna take me out of this black hole? Never Ever have I ever felt so sad, The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad, Never Ever have I had to find, I've had to gig away to find my own peace of mind, I've Never Ever had my conscience to fight, The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right. x2 I'll keep searching deep within my soul, For all the answers, I don't wanna hurt no more, I need peace, got to feel at ease, need to be....... Free from pain, I'm going insane, my heart aches, yeah. Sometimes vocabulary runs right through my head, the alphabet runs right from A to Z , Conversations, hesitations in my mind, You got my conscience asking questions that I can't find, I'm not crazy, I'm sure I ain't done nothing wrong, I'm just waiting, 'cause I heard this feeling won't last that long. Never Ever have I ever felt so low, When you gonna take me out of this black hole? Never Ever have I ever felt so sad, The way I'm feeling yeah, you got me feeling really bad, Never Ever have I had to find, I've had to dig away to find my own peace of mind, I've Never Ever had my conscience to fight, The way I'm feeling, yeah, I just don't feel right. x4 You can tell me to my face,You can tell me on the phone, Uh, You can write it in a letter, babe,'Cause I really need to know.
