Another Life

Album: Black Messiah (2014)
  • How does one attempt to be
    The kind of friend that you would want to keep?
    I just want to say to thee
    Even though it might be hard to believe
    The candy-coated thoughts that drift through my sleep
    Lets me know it's you that holds the key
    I got a craving for confection so sweet
    For the taste of when our lips first meet

    Oh, in another life, I bet you wouldn't know that
    Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl

    I just wanna take you with me
    To secret rooms in the mansions of my mind
    Shower you with all that you need
    Take my hand, I swear I'll take my time
    I'm not surprised to find that angels compete
    For the chance to lay down at your feet
    I'm gonna touch in all of the places that please
    Pull you close
    I wanna feel you breathe

    Oh, in another life, I bet you wouldn't know
    Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl

    It's another reason for the season
    I don't wanna break your heart
    Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl, oh! Writer/s: Ahmir Thompson, Kendra Foster, Michael Archer
