Jill Scott – And I Heard lyrics

I wrote this and Id like to share it with you tonight ok. Shh. Thank you very much.
Its called "And I heard" because its what I heard.
I'm just going.... I'm going to sing the first verse for you so you know, ok.
I just want to make sure you hear the words so clearly.

You ready?
And I heard

You seem to have a mystery of me
I am here to broach it.
I am he who resides, in everything growing and glowing, glowing
I am not one to try and hide
I am here and I show it
Make no mistake, Satin is the father of lies
But I am father to him, and all of them, and you are light

It goes like this.
Dodo, dodo dodo dodo
Dodo dodo dodo, dodo do dodo
Dodo dodo dodo, dodo do dodo
Can you turn the drummer up please in the house
Dodo dodo dodo, Thank you. Dodo do dodo
And I heard!!!

You seem to have a mystery of me
I am here to broach it.
I am he who resides, in everything growing and glowing
I am not one to try and hide
I am here and I show it
Make no mistake, Satin is the father of lies
But I am father to him, and all of them, and you are light

Do you understand what you feel inside?
Let me light you let that guide you know I got your side
Do you understand what you feel inside?

And I heard continued. And it said

Wow, wow, wow, wow, look at your life. Bright!
Do you know how bright you are to me?
You're a home made star in my sights
And I'm guiding you, constantly moving
There is a reason for your life
You'll never understand it, it's my plan
Just have faith in me, with all your might
Just have faith in me, and you are light!

Do you understand what you feel inside?
Let me light you let that guide you know I got your side
Do you understand what you feel inside?

And I heard continued. And it said

Before each breath, an out an in, before that I begin
Let your light guide let your light guide
No biases, no prejudice
I am the blood flowing against gravity, hear me
Before each second, before each blink
I am the millisecond before the millisecond it took you to think
I am the glory, I am the light
Understand that I brought you all hear tonight

Do you understand what you feel inside?
Let me light you let that guide you know I got your side
Do you understand, what you feel inside, feel in side?
Let me light you let that guide you
Do you understand what you feel inside?
Let me light you let that guide you know I got your side
On your sides all the time all the time all the time on your side on you side
Do you understand?

Before I walk off this stage, do you really understand?
Before I walk off I need you to open your mouths and sing that hook
Now I'm going to tell you how it goes again so don't get scared, don't ever get scared
But when you're singing imagine that you're looking at yourself in the mirror, ok.
And sing... Do you understand what you feel inside?

Ready?
