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 expectation
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 it's 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
Hadley's the long road to travel
I gotta dream to keep my eye open (2x)

We got so long to go
We got so far to go
Hadley's the long road
Hadley's the long road
God given name
