Lyrics

We need a change yall do you believe it
I feel a change coming on, can you see it
You know we need a change do you receive it
do something different that change you can be it (2x)
We don’t talk any more we just text it
We don’t share when it hurts, we accept it
so afraid to open up, so we selfish
With our time and gifts we can’t help it
These are choices we can do something different
But when we want something, want it this minute
When others need us we make them wait
charge others, when its my turn don’t wanna pay
I feel for kids want an ending that’s happy
My heart goes to boys girls without a daddy
Seeking love from the streets that keep us under
whites act black like downey in tropic thunder
blacks try to be upper class so they forget
our history wonder why they ain’t got respect
Think the war is over it just started
you think was gone happen when Barack got in office
WAKE UP

We need a change yall do you believe it
I feel a change coming on, can you see it
You know we need a change do you receive it
do something different that change you can be it (2X)
Now let me speak to those folk that’s been divorced
had great love its gone, cause you were forced
Went through hell now you protect your space
ran so much can’t see heaven when its in your face
think you seen it all, relationships a mess
Would you feel like that if you loved yourself
Some don’t know how to give love (RIGHT) never seen it
So when they say they love you (ME) you don’t believe it
piece of you missing (huh) wonder what is it
the part that beautiful (uhh) and you gotta give it
A chance to breathe to be to see and be free
Reconcile you past then you can take the heat
Its not just women that’s alone I know you hate it
Men hurt just as much as you they don’t wanna say it
Who suffers when we want each other and hide it
we do, the devil wins when we walk in silence

SO LET’S SPEAK
We need a change yall do you believe it
I feel a change coming on, can you see it
You know we need a change do you receive it
do something different that change you can be it (2x)
We don’t believe in real love its only lust
Y’all ain’t thugs just boys that like to cuss
Girls your stuff ain’t that good less you conceal it
Don’t be so fast to give your heart til he reveals it
That he want you so bad he’ll put you first
folk will treat you right if you know your worth
see our babies grow up so fast skip class
Know every Weezy song but can’t read or do math
We try to send our kids to school, they raise the stakes
keep out the folks of color taking us back to slaves
Segregation real and it starting over
In our hood which tells me that the end is closer
propaganda don’t scare me my faith’s in God
Not man so I’m upset but never shocked
When we do wrong see we not perfect
But we’ll live in peace when we know our purpose

That’s the truth
We need a change yall do you believe it
I feel a change coming on, can you see it
You know we need a change do you receive it
do something different that change you can be it (2x)
