Between Me, You & Liberation(feat. Cee-Lo

[First Verse]

She rested her head upon my chest

Sensed liberation in between breaths

Wonder if sex is what she found it in

Peace, found it laying down with men

Wasn't there to judge her, many ways I loved her

It was more than bodies we shared with each other

We layed under the cover of friends

A place where many lovers began

I began, to feel her body shake in my hand

Body language, it's so hard trying to understand

Usually after sex, it's a good feel

Took by silence, emotion stood still

I could feel, her tears spill, from her grille

Hurt from before that began to build

She told me hold me, a story she assembled it

Tellin' it, trying not to remember it

It was a story of innocence taken

Thought she could redeem, through love makin'

When she was eight she was raped by her father

And tried to escape through multiple sex partners

Felt pitiful, she had only learned,

To love through the physical, inside it burned

My heart turned, I thought of what this man did

She forgave him, she grew to understand it

Her soul was tired and never really rested

Only with men through aggression

Said it was a blessing and it happened for a reason

By speaking it, she found freedom

Between me and you [echo]



[Chorus - Cee-Lo]

Sometimes I wish a, careless whisper

Serenade her, without speaking a word

Because of you I'm stronger, I'm afraid no longer

I feel so alive in me, you have liberated me



[Second Verse]

She laid, I watched her breathe

Happy to be here, not afraid to leave

I couldn't concieve her not being here

Death in her face her not having fear

Less than a year she was diagnosed with it

Memories of that year, so close and vivid

Happiness, would only visit, once in a while

To watch an adult, becoming a child

Somehow, I knew she'd make it

The life of one so given early would God take it?

Hurt she placed in, hope and prayer

Hurt she placed in chemo and lost hair

I stare with my eyes closed

Wonder when the body leave does the mind go

Watchin' Jordan became less important

Seeing this disease eat away my aunt's organs

According to doctors theres no cure

We went through doubt, and cases of insure

Wish I knew then how to heal with herbs

Knew a part of her I could heal with words

But the (?) was (?)

What seemed like the end was the beginning for her

Like that, she didn't want us to remember her

No more medication did she want us to give to her

It spread from her liver to her lungs to her last breath

Only to be freed through death

Between me and you [echo]



[Chorus]



[Third Verse]

He spoke with his eyes, tear-filled

A lump in his throat, his fear built

My whole life it was in steel

This ain't the way that men feel

A feeling, he said he wish he could kill

A feeling, not even time could heal

This is how real life's supposed to be?

For it to happen to someone close to me?

So far we'd come, for him to tell me

As he did, insecurity held me

I felt like he failed me

To the spirit, yelled help me

I'd known him for like what seemed forever

About going pro we dreamed together

Never knew it would turn out like this

For so long he tried to fight this

Now there was no way for him to ignore it

His parents found out and hated him for it

How could I judge him? Had to accept him if I truly loved him

No longer he said had he hated himself

Through sexuality he liberated himself

Between me and you [echo]



[Chorus]



Liberation...

Peace
