Black Star – Beautiful lyrics
[mos def, kweli, background singers]

(yes you areee, you're so beautiful)
(on your knees)
Absolutely fantastic
(in my life)
Absolutely fantastic
(on my feet)
All the world fantastic
Absolutely fantastic
(come to meee)
*Quietly*(scientifically, scientifically)**
(down again, so we'll wash it over me)
Fantastic x3

Tell the world

[Mos Def]
I dreamt that I could paint you in words
But there were no colors, bright enough
Black or white enough
Blue or green enough
It didn't mean enough
You are the star to touch the earth
Shine bright for all eyes to see,
Radiate and touch me
Now I'm shining like you do
It was dim before I knew you
Bright light for weeping eyes to get used to
Trust who? That's some shit I had to adjust to
Soon as you relax they ease back and cold bust you
Love murdered in Brooklyn, sound the alarm
But you still remain calm
My passion is unarmed
I try to practice my warlike tactics
But in your clutch, in your touch
My armor, just collapses
Such bliss breeds obliviousness
I recollect sweet breath still wet on my lips
My prayers this:
God protect my beloved
And keep her covered
From the valley to the summit
Like the land undiscovered
Like the stars outnumbered, you are so beautiful.

[Chorus:] background singers [kweli & Mos Def]

[I'm doing my best so I can be true to you]
On your knees
[aint nothin in this world I wouldn't do for you]
In my life
[you're my everything more than ever and usual]
On my feet
[like the stars outnumbered you are so beautiful]
[you shine so very far from where I stand]
Come to me
[from a distant land understand who I am]
Down again, we can wash it over me.]

(Talib Kweli)

You know what!
They say that beauty's in the eye of the beholder
So I use my third, and now our love is solid like a boulder
Wanna build with you as I get older, and that's my word
Sure as I stand on my ancestor's shoulders
You see through my drama and my world like a stage
Not the same years but livin in the same age
Its the kwelity not the quantity
Follow me
Far from probably.
Got to be, you and me
Beau-ti-ful-ly fit,
Like pieces of a man I used to be
Now I'm back because of what you do to me
You're like my reflection
The better half to my whole
Like lyrics to the beat
You're the mate for my soul
The breath for my life, my sister and my lover
Used to have cold feet, now you're the warmth under my covers
I can't ignore your aura because it grab me by the hand
Like the moon pull the tide (mos & kweli)and the tide pull the sand

(2nd chorus) [mos & kweli]
[go head baby baby sing that song what]
[alright, yeah, we feelin it, go ]
Soooo beautiful
[go head baby baby sing that song]
That dream that'll be, so beautiful
[alright, yeah, we feelin it, go ]
[go head]*fades out*
I wanna say ohhh clearly, that I love you, aloud
Oooooh the love you give, all the love you give to me
Ooooooh my days and niiiiights were lonely
And it's soooo beautiful
I know I have a friend that I can talk to yeaaah
Ohh you're so beautiful.

(mos def & Kweli) ... Note: they switch off after a few bars, and trade it back and forth. You'll get the idea if you listen to the song.....

(mos) because you're fruitful
(mos & kweli) beautiful, smart, lovable, huggable, doable like art, suitable to be part of the
(kweli) Cosmos! With my eyes closed I see you clearly
(mos & kweli) combine lifetimes with like minds your love light shine
(mos) bright! The apple of my eyesight, the tender kiss that whet my appetite
My mighty aphrodite, the flame that ignite me
(mos & kweli) your name just excite me, your eyes so alive they invite me 'cause you
(kweli) are so beautiful, you don't even know, the length I would go, to make absolutely sure you is respected and protected
(mos & kweli)and never neglected, I hope my prayers is accepted that you always
(mos) will be watched over, and never rocked over, and if you need me to I'll stop over to check on you, I never jet on you.
(mos & kweli) I know a lot of foolish cats that slept on you, but what *background singers enter* I'm gonna do is be
(kweli) totally committed, if you need me I'll be hotter than a new york minute with a hundred percentage from the start to the finish
(mos & kweli)because the vibe that you give
(mos) leave me so replenished, it's a new beginning, this is serious business. Got my heart and soul in it, it's the way that I'm livin. Let it be noted that devotedness gon always prevail. The newly risen truly livin
(mos & kweli) universal for real, it's like that ya'll.

(on your knees)
You're the only love I know
(in my life)
You're the only love that knows
(on my feet)
You're the reason why I'm here
(come to me)
You're the reason why I want to give you everything

For my love.
