Ooh Aah – Song of the Week

This week will be the first time a Rap song appears in this space.  Turns out, I love rap and hip hop music.  That may seem weird for the pasty red head guy, but it is true. 

One of the things I like about rap is generally they say A LOT in their songs.  What I mean by that is that there are a lot of words.  They don’t always say anything important, or seem to have a lot meaning. 

However, Grits is one of my favorite groups (and their songs do tend to have some thought behind them), so I picked one of my favorite songs to play this week.   

I found this YouTube video of the song, looks like somebody used scenes from one of the Fast and Furious movies with it, but it’s pretty cool, so it works for me.

 

The lyrics are sometimes tough to sort out, but these seem pretty close:

its times like these that make me say
lord if you see me please come my way
leavin bread crumbs for when i stray
rely on sacrifice and the price you paid
feel me like a fingertip
sometimes i fall i slip
my heartfelt desire be more like you
trying not to quench your fire by the things that i do

on an island by my lonesome stranded
low key and stayin’ candid
reflect on all the things i try my hand at
search for the equations to persuasions im used to
finding comfort in the zones of closet bones i get loose to
a mountainous fontaine
spinnin and monsoonin’
grinnin’ its high octane
explosive how i came
rollin down hills cause lifes a hastle
encircled by my folly like a moat surround a castle
stay afloat catch a second wind
thin is the air i breathe
teary eyed nose runnin’
wipe the snot on my sleeve
im callin’ on my savior
to be all that i need
please forgive me
my behavior had me lost at light speed

the fear of never falling in love
and the tears after losing the feelings
of what you thought love was
like the dirt still up under the rug
bad characteristics
covered in christs blood
the joy of new birth
and the pain of growing up
the bliss between giving my all
and giving up
the highs and lows
paths and roads i chose
in the cold i froze
trying to ease my woes
in this world of sin
clothes to thin to fend
so to God i send
words of help to win
in grumblings so deep
letters could never express
so the sound of ooh aah
beneath my breath projects

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My life be like ooh aah ooh
Come young diti
Here comes that boy from the capital city
Last up on the Grits new diti
But eight bars of the truth will do, eh
I beleive there’s a bride thats stunning
And, I believe in the kingdom coming
I believe if you seek the truth,
You don’t need to look far cuz it’s gonna find you

(chorus)x2

My life be like x4
