When I looked over my shoulder, It got a little bit colder It's like I lost love from an angel And now I'm feeling like a stranger Abandon, I'm stranded I gotta get back to you I called triple A They say they on their way Times ticking fast Gotta see you today
But if my time is up Let me know right now I will find a way to your heart again So I'm speedin' I'm speedin' (Whoa) Speedin' I'm speedin' Ugh, ugh, ooh, whoa whoa Ugh, ugh, ooh, whoa whoa whoa
Aight, no time to be patient Just got the confirmation And now I'm flying down the highway She's crying, trying love my way I'm with it (so with it) Committed To ride away with you, girl And give you what you need More than your eyes could ever see
But if my time is up Let me know right now I will find a way, to your heart again So I'm speedin I'm speedin (Whoa) Speedin' I'm speedin'
Times moving fast but not fast enough so I'm speedin', speedin' I'm racing fast but not fast enough so I'm speedin, speedin' I'm doing 90 down the highway (highway) Gotta make this turn, I'll be there right away, baby Hop out the car, I'm at your door I'll beat it up and there you go I gotta scoop you in my arms
But if my time is up Let me know right now I will find a way, to your heart again So I'm speedin' I'm speedin' (Whoa) Speedin' I'm speedin' (Whoa) Oh, oh ho oh ah Ooh oh ho oh oh oh whoa! Speedin' I'm speedin'
Ooh oh ho oh oh oh Speedin' I'm speedin' Speedin' I'm speedin' Speedin'

Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
A key line in "Africa" is "I seek to cure what's deep inside, frightened of this thing that I've become," which is about drifting away from what you really want in life. Toto keyboard player David Paich, who wrote the song, felt his work was consuming him.
