I knew I was far from my harbour.
I knew I had no wind in my sails.
Something pulled me down in the water.
Got baptised without realising a thing.

I knew it wasn't anything religious.
No epiphany that made me who I am.
Slept inside for a year and got better.
Came back outside and did the same thing again.

So I led you through, Bed-Stuy that sunny afternoon.
You had your eyes closed shut, and you were pregnant with our kid.

Got up early, walked outside and left our brownstone. There was gospel playing in a church close by.
The locals looked so friendly as they stood there. Negro spiritual in wild harmony.

So the sweet side of it all is really quite enviable.
If it grabbed on to me, I'd probably just give up and roll with it.

Roll with it.
Roll with it.
Roll with it and become something.
