Solange – God-Given Name lyrics

Exclusive, exclusive
Welcome to Solange
And I had wished you dreams

Get me, get me out of this box
I feel so claustrophobic in here
Leave your labels, leave with no patience
Hear my voice and fill with your ears
I'm no soul, girl, equipped with no afro
I'm just my God given name

I'm not becoming expectations
I'm not her and never will be
Two girls gone in different direction
Striving towards the same galaxy
Let my star light shine on its own
No, I'm no sister, I'm just my God given name

And I'm sorry if this planet that I'm living on is quizzical
My lyrical ambition some times don't ring a bell
I'm sorry if my visual don't lie to put my feelings
And my physical exhibit doesn't represent me well
I'm sorry if I'm curious, delirious and I don't take life serious

I'm here at the life of a million debts
And I'm sorry if I'm talking shit
But I really do mean well

We gotta long, long moon to glow
At least the long road to travel
I gotta dream to keep my eyes open
We gotta long, long moon to glow
At least the long road to travel
I gotta dream to keep my eyes open

We got so long to go
We got so far to go
At least the long road
At least the long road
God given name

I sound high, don't I?
I promise I'm not high
