Jill Scott - Try / Love Rain (Remix) Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Love rain down on me,
  • On me,
  • Down on me.
  • Love rain down on me,
  • On me,
  • Down on me,
  • Love rain down on me,
  • On me,
  • Down on me.
  • Love rain down on me,
  • On me,
  • Down one me.
  • Met him on a Thursday,
  • Sunny afternoon,
  • Cumulous clouds, 84 degrees.
  • He was brown,
  • Said he wanted to talk about my mission, listen to my past lives.
  • Took me on long walks to places where butterflies rest easy,
  • Talked about Moses and Mumia, reparations, blue colors, memories of shell-topped Adidas.
  • He was fresh like summer peaches;
  • Sweet on my mind like block parties and penny candy.
  • We were nice and warm, no jacket, no umbrella, just warm.
  • At night, we would watch the stars,
  • And he would physically give me each and every one.
  • I felt like cayenne pepper, red, hot spicy.
  • I felt dizzy and so near heaven.
  • Miles between my thighs,
  • Better than love, we made delicious.
  • He me had, and had me he.
  • He had me tongue tied;
  • I could hear his rhythm in my thoughts.
  • I was his sharp, his horn section.
  • His boom and his bip,
  • And he was my love.
  • Chorus x1
  • The rain was falling and slowly and sweetly and stinging my eyes,
  • And I could see that he became my voodoo priest,
  • And I was his faithful concubine.
  • Wide open, wide, loose like bowels after collard greens.
  • The mistake was made, love slipped from my lips,
  • Dripped down my chin and landed in his lap,
  • And we became new.
  • Now me now clairvoyant and in love,
  • Made the coochie easy and the obvious invisible.
  • The rain was falling,
  • And I couldn't see the season changing,
  • And the vibe slipping off it's axis.
  • Our beautiful melody became wildly staccato.
  • The...rain...was..falling...and...I...could not...see..that...I..was...to...be
  • Loud...
  • And so fertile,
  • And left to drown in his sunny afternoon,
  • Cumulus clouds of 84 degree melody.
  • Chorus x1
  • Mos Def:
  • I stretched my arms towards the sky like blades of tall grass.
  • The sun beat between my shoulders like carnival drums.
  • I sat still in hopes that it would help my wings to grow,
  • So that I could be really fly.
  • And then she arrived,
  • Like day break inside a rainway tunnel,
  • Like the new moon, like a diamond in the mines, like high noon to a drunkard, sudden.
  • She made my heart beat in a now/now time signature.
  • Her skinny canvas for ultraviolet brushstrokes;
  • She was the sun's painting.
  • She was a deep cognac color;
  • Her eyes sparkled like lights along the new city.
  • She lips pursed as if her breath was too sweet and full for her mouth to hold.
  • I said, "you are the beautiful, distress of mathematics."
  • I said, "For you, I would peel open the clouds like new fruit;
  • Give you lightning and thunder as a dowry.
  • I would make the sky she'd all of it's stars like rain,
  • And I would make the heavens your cape,
  • And they would be pleased to cover you.
  • They would be pleased to cover you,
  • May I cover you?"
