about

This soul filled mellow track captures exactly why we love Talibah. It is lyrically insightful and melodically relaxing. She is able to capture the listener with the sultry sounds of her voice and keep them with the relatable tone of her lyrics.

lyrics

Made up my mind.
Been thinking for a while now.
Sun in my eyes.
I'm dancing on a cloud now.
Spendin my time.
Recordin with surround sound.
I'm down now.
Easy like a Sunday morning.
Jumped out the bed and Im yawning.
Just layin there gets boring.
Bank account is enormous,
Self affirmations important.
I'll form it with touring
from South Memphis to Florence.
Eyes is on the prize.
Focused on the gwalah
Aint got time to play with guys.
We on the rise.
Innervisions in my mind.
I'm the Golden Lady.
Ribbon dancin i the sky
And Im too high.
And I don't give a fuck
i've had an overdose on luck and it's on.
Once again I be.
I be.
I be singing jingles to the sky
My oh my.
We roller coaster ride.
Way up high
We on the RISE
La da da da da
Yo
High and lows
You see em everywhere you go
Whether friend or foe
You gotta make sure that they know
When the cameras roll
And every night's another show.
I've entered into the light zone.
I know, it came as a surprise.
You thought I was lying
But now I'm walking in red bottoms and got bushels of pine.
Mama's rollin in a Bentley thats the color of wine.
We sHINE
WeShine.
So come on.
