I know, I'm slackin

detox ended well, i now know that its in the mind more than anything. Im looking forward to the next one. I am currently living in the stone ages and don't have access to the internet until im in a library so its hard for me to communicate with my internet friends :(... but thats temporary... the only constant is love and im living it. I want to share some lyrics with you all though. If you're just joining me, I have a beautiful album available digitally, titled REMEMBER ME. The lyrics I wanna share comes from a song entitled AFROMANTIC. This was the only co-write lyrically on the album and I am very proud of what came to be. If you dig what you've read, you can check the song on the myspace page, and/or you can buy the album. These days, when I'm feeling something hard enough, you don't have to upsale me. I'll buy it immediately. If I instantly connect to it, I want nothing but the best for you. So take a read, maybe we're similar.

Afromantic
(c) Nakia Henry and Tosin Adeyinka

You arouse me
So astounding
Divine creature you
You’re all around me

What I say to you
I say bout me
Your strength goes on forever
Why not be strong together

This ain’t no love song
Not setting the mood
I’m just calling it like it is
I’m reminding you of who you are

You and me
Me and you
It’s an illusion baby
I know the truth

Oh lets plant this seed to the earth and let this flower grow
Grow to the sun, more than and never less then before
Oh expanding growth, six kids fifty four years
Oh be one, be one, be one

What I say to you, I say to me cuz we are one and its afromantic

Just the thought of you
Just the sight of you
I’m in love with you
I guess I’m inside you too

You lived inside my mind
Bout time to real-ize
No more concepts baby
My soul wants to apply

If the world's a mirror
Let’s look into it
Look at the light
And we’ll remind the world of who we are

Just look closely baby
We’re amazing
We are beautiful
We are royalty

Oh lets plant this seed to the earth and let this flower grow
Grow to the sun, more than and never less then before
Oh expanding growth, six kids fifty four years

Oh be one, be one, be one
