Solange – God Given Name Lyrics

[Spoken:] Exclusive, Exclusive, Welcome to Solange & The Hadley Street Dreams

Get me get me out of this box
I feel so claustrophobic in here
Leave your labels lead with no vision
Here 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 going in different directions
Traveling towards the same galaxy
Let my starlight shine on it’s own
No I’m no sister
I’m just my God given name

And I’m sorry that this planet that I’m living on is quizzical
My lyrical ambitions sometimes don’t ring a bell
I’m sorry if my visual don’t line up with 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 living the life of a millionaire
And I’m sorry if I’m talking shit
But I really do mean well

We’ve got a long long moon to glow
Hadley’s a long road to travel
I gotta dream to keep my eyes open
We’ve got a long long moon to glow
Hadley’s the long road to travel
I gotta dream to keep my eyes open

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

[Spoken:] I sound high don’t I
I was going to ask you what’s the matter
[laughs] I promise I’m not high

[Solange - God Given Name Lyrics]
