Maimouna Youseef-Shine Your Light

Whats up party people
This is ya girl
Sherry Duveaux
On WTLC rocking for the hard working folks
Just getting off of one gig and heading to another.
But in this crazy Friday rush hour traffic
I gotta jam that will smooth you out and get you right for the night
Imma about to split but before I do
An instant classic by none other than Maimouna Youssef
Dig the lyrics jack, she’s dropping some knowledge and making you feel good too
A little inspiration from your favorite station, a groove to get you in the mood,
Some Sounds for your get down
I know its rough out there yall, the Man’s foot always on ya neck
but don’t worry about that sucka, just shine your light and I’ll catch you on the flip side…

Keep on Walking with your head held high (shine your light 2x)
Keep on talking like you heard it from the sky (shine your light 2x)
We aint gonna let ‘em bring us down (shine your light 2x)
You know we come too far to give up now (shine your light 2x)
The chosen people bare the hardest load (shine your light 2x)
Heavy is the head that wears the crown you know (shine your light 2x)
Give Him thanks cuz we got Soul (shine your light 2x)
Baby shake it off and let the good times roll (shine your light 2x)
And lets party, everybody come together if only for one night (shine your light 2x)
Forget the troubles of the world (shine your light 2x)

 

Hook:
Lead: Oh and let the good times roll BGV: Shine your light (Repeat)
Lead: its good to be a light
Hey Let the good times roll, it feels so good to be alive
Child is born with no state of mind
Raised up in this ghetto life
Three strikes got daddy doing time
Feel like he was born under a bad sign
Crooked cops shoot your kids right in the back
They raided my grandmamma house, she had a heart attack
And when black girls go missing they never look for that
This ain’t nowhere to live but sh*t its where we’re at

Always seeming like we falling on some bad times
But we find a way to smile and keep our heads up high
Oh party Just forget about the troubles of the world HeyToo much hard times will hurt your pride (shine your light 2x)
And the ones that you love don’t ever do you right (shine your light 2x)
So I keep on living with my head up high (shine your light 2x)
Everywhere I go Im going to shine my light (shine your light 2x)
Im going to stand on my feet if I have to die (shine your light 2x)
I’ll never live on my knees just to pacify (shine your light 2x)
People don’t you have no fear tonight (shine your light 2x)
God Children were promised ever lasting life (shine your light 2x)

 

Hook:
People come together, forget about the troubles of the world,
shake it off and let the good times roll,
shake it off and let the good times roll baby,
feels good to let the good times roll

Oshun-Sango

No pressure, you don’t have to love me
Just give me some time, just make me feel lucky
When you lay with me night
And when the sun comes up to meet the light
You say that you don’t care
I’m big enough to handle it
Just play in my hair and kiss me while the candles lit
Your secrets safe with me and I won’t tell
I don’t mind if you hurt me it’s my own fault that I fell
And I tell myself I need you, but you don’t feel the same
And double standards taught me I should let you play the game
But I’m not ashamed of playing the fool
Just call me beautiful
You tell me things like you’ll leave her when we both know that’s not true
And make promises of the things we both know you won’t do
Boy it’s cool, I’ll crumble alone
And you gone live your life and only fuck when in the zone
And yeah you make me moan
I put you on a throne; you won’t pick up your phone
But baby you make me feel grown
So I persist to give you everything you want
Even though you kept it real with me and you been blunt
Saying that we won’t be together and this is only lust
And never equals never
I’m on the same page as you
There’s nothing that I can explain to you
To show you why

Oshun...

I just keep on giving
I cannot keep living for you
Got my mind spinning round
You gon’ let me drown
But I’m sick of falling
I wanna rise to love
Rise to love
Rise

(Verse 2)
A weak woman goes where she is smiled at
But I’ve never seen a smile quite like yours
Said he loves me, he loves me not
Well he’s not sure but he knows he wants me
Yeah he said I’m making him hot hot hot
And so I let him take my top off
I don’t know thinking maybe things will pop off
Or sparks from the physical signals to his mental for a certain type of spiritual relationship
But, he just want the rhythm of my hips
Placing seldom kisses upon my lips
You know that quick fix satisfaction
Bridging to nowhere, a fatal attraction
Like whoa there, why did we go there so fast?
We knew that purely matter never ever last
Now morning glass outside looking in
While your bragging bout my ass to your friends
And I know this all begins with my issues with men
That’s why

(Chorus 2)
I keep on defending
The fact that I’m depending on you
I know it’s true that
A weak woman goes where she is smiled at
But I’ve never seen a smile quite like yours
Whether you love me or love me not
I’ll adore you forever more

(Chorus 1)
And I’ll just keep on giving
I cannot keep living for you
Got my mind spinning round
You gon’ let me drown
But I’m sick of falling
I wanna rise to love
Rise to love
Rise

Lauryn Hill -Stronger Than Pride(Live)

I won’t pretend that I intend to stop living
I won’t pretend I’m good at forgiving
But I can’t hate you
Though I have tried
Mmmm
I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you
Mmmm
I won’t pretend that I intend to stop living
I won’t pretend I’m good at forgiving
But I can’t hate you
Although I have tried
L-Boogie.....jpg
Mmmm
I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you
Mm mm mm mm mm
Sitting here wasting my time
Would be like
Waiting for the sun to rise
It’s all too clear things come and go
Sitting here
Sitting here waiting for you
Would be like waiting for winter
It’s gonna be cold
There may even
Be snow
I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you
Love is stronger
I still really love you
Love is stronger than pride

Erykah Badu- Hotline Bling(Remix)

Erykah5

Soul songstress Erykah Badu is back!  This is the remix to Drake’s song Hotline Bling.  I must say I like it better than Drake’s version.

You used to call me on my cellular device at night
You used to call me on my cellular device at night
And I know when that hotline bling, that could only mean one thing
I know when that hotline bling, that could only mean one thing

(Verse 1)
Ever since I left the city you
Got a reputation for yourself now
Everybody knows and I feel left out
Boy, you got me down, and got me stressed out
Cause ever since I left the city, you
Started getting dressing, going out more
Glasses of champagne out on the dance floor
Hanging with some dudes I’ve never seen before

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 2)
Them people just said let it go
And on and on and such and such
But they don’t ride around with us
No, no, no
Ain’t that too bad we love to hang
And for a while, it stays the same
But now you tryna change the game
No, no, no

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
Late night when you need my love
Late night when you need my love
Late night when you need my love
Late night when you need my love
