The Root

D’Angelo

She done worked the root
Done worked a root that will not be reversed
Yeah... No
Then I go On... On
Go on my role in her play
With no rehearsal
Said I left my mojo
Left my mojo in my favorite suit
Yes I did, yeah
She left a stain
Left a dirty stain in my heart i can't refute
Oh I Can't


She done worked a Root
In the name of love and war
Took my shield and sword
From the pit of the bottom
That knows no floor
Like the rain to the dirt
From the wine to the vine
From the Alpha to creation
To the end of time, yeah

To the end of time

Said, I went, said I went, said I went to the doctor
The man told me there ain't nothin' wrong with me
Said that I beg to differ
I been feeling this pain much to soon
I feel like my soul is empty
My blood is cold and I can't feel my legs
I need someone to hold me
Bring me back to before I'm dead
Oh, Yeah

In the name of love and war took my sheild and sword
From the pit of the bottom that know no floor
Like the rain to the dirt
Like the vine to the wine
From the Alpha creation
To the end of time
