Unsure of what the balance held
I touched my belly overwhelmed
By what I had been chosen to perform
But then an angel came one day
Told me to kneel down and pray
For unto me a man child would be born
Woe this crazy circumstance
I knew his life deserved a chance
But everybody told me to be smart
Look at your career they said,
“Lauryn, baby use your head”
But instead I chose to use my heart

Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion

How beautiful if nothing more
Than to wait at Zion’s door
I’ve never been in love like this before
Now let me pray to keep you from
The perils that will surely come
See life for you my prince has just begun
And I thank you for choosing me
To come through unto life to be
A beautiful reflection of his grace
For I know that a gift so great
Is only one God could create
And I’m reminded every time I see your face

That the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion
Now the joy of my world is in Zion

Marching, marching, marching to Zion
Marching, marching
Marching, marching, marching to Zion
Beautiful, beautiful Zion
[repeat to end of song]

Carlos Santana ft. Lauryn Hill & Cee-Lo – Do you like the way / Te gusta la manera


Album creado entre 1998 y 1999, lanzado al mercado el 15 de Junio de 1999

Este tema tiene algunas cosas interesantes, lo primero, la virtuosidad de Carlos Santana, luego la tremenda voz y producción de Lauryn Hill, y además el apoyo del ex integrante de Goodie Mob y actual Gnarls Barkley, Cee-Lo.

Si se percatan, el párrafo de L. Boogie es netamente (y como solía ser en el “Miseducation…”) enfocado en la comunidad Rastafari, dado que ella es alguien profusamente religiosa y, como afroamericana , devota de esa religión.

Me encanta este tema desde la primera vez que lo escuché, no solo porque Lauryn rapeara en él, sino mas bien por como está estructurado y el uso exquisito de la guitarra de Santana.

Disfruten!.

[lauryn hill]
Watch the master plan, the pastures span
Through the streets, move the sheep
Flipped the beat, like the shepherd
It’s a new day, my crew stay forever striving
Give thanks cause we alive, and been through the gutter
Now we see the horizon
It’s clear to me now
Used to be confused, took a lot of years to see how
Now, we moving planets
Take the average mind and expand it
You take for granted like we’re always gonna be disadvantaged
But soon come, it soon come, ya soon done
Ya start run, you stumble, we catch one
In the rhythm, Santana lick the guits with precision
Not accidental, intentional conscious decision
To Zion, we’re marching through with African Mayans
Conquering Babylon with the heart of a lion
[–falta una linea de la letra–]
And the walls of Jericho come a-tumbling down

[cee-lo]
Tell me, how long has it been
Is everything, everything alright my friend

You see, time is passing, people asking how come none of this
ain’t lasting
Money will make people deal like they don’t even have to feel
But no, it ain’t real, it ain’t real

Oh, do you like the way that it’s going down
Do you like the way that it’s going down
Ooh, do you like the way

How long, how long will we wait, to sit down and communicate
See, everything is relative, if you want to get then give
Can’t we all just build and live,can’t we, can’t we ?

Do you like the way that it’s going down
Do you like the way that it’s going down
Do you like the way that it’s going down
Do you like the way that it’s going down
