(Ooh, Ohh)
 
Here I stand before you - brown.
 
Color of the mountains
 
Colossal as the earth
 
Wrapped so deliciously within my own joy and misery
 
Feathers of my wings paralyzed by the distance of my mind
 
Here I stand before you, the color of the night
 
Frozen by the potential of me
 
(Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh-uh-uh-uh-uh) An Afro Angel
 
 
 
Afro Angel off your pedestal from perchin above
 
You on the prowl now, downtown, searchin for love
 
In all the wrong places, outside your radio stations
 
Hopin he with new hit single, is tryin to mingle
 
Today, he is in your town, puttin it down
 
You in the car with your friends, followin my limo around
 
Puttin a bug in my boy's ear, your "S" is for free
 
You'll do anything for Omar or Phil, bring you to me
 
And then me, hypnotized by the devil as well
 
Hold out my hand as an invitation into my hotel
 
No need to RSVP, place your hand in my palm
 
As all your girlfriends getting jealous, damn she landed the bomb
 
Willing to trade your spirit for some crass, whack wage
 
Something small, something simple as a pass back stage
 
But now I lay me, down to creep
 
And I - pray the Lord my soul to keep
 
 
 
Chorus:
 
Afro Angel, born against the world
 
You don't have to sell your soul and throw away your pride
 
Afro Angel, sent from heaven above
 
Never forget that you are loved
 
You know that you are loved
 
 
 
Lil Bobby got a gun now, age fifteen
 
Destined to spend his life inside a cage it seems
 
Rage inside, pride, been denied respect
 
He can't take it though he gotta earn it
 
But he ain't learned that yet
 
Out on the town, reckless abandon he's been bullied before
 
But now he straps, and no more
 
Attitude high
 
Flexin on every guy that walk by
 
But don't start pal
 
'cause if the gun came from the whiz, Cowardly Lion, got heart now
 
Let's pull it on a stranger
 
Ahh, fun for the crew
 
Surprised when he realized, damn dude got one too
 
Smile's upside down now, games ain't so cute
 
Bobby's a deer in a headlights
 
Pump, drop it or I'll shoot
 
Then like a sniper, cleanin his rifle, Bobby disobeys his commands
 
One shot rings out (gunshot) then only the stranger stands
 
Could of sworn Bobby's blood formed the shape of an angel's wings
 
But for what?
 
 
 
Chorus:
 
Afro Angel, born against the world
 
You don't have to sell your soul and throw away your pride
 
Afro Angel, sent from heaven above
 
Never forget that you are loved
 
You know that you are loved
 
 
 
Back in high school, Tamika was the sweetest, the bomb
 
Hot to death, though in tenth grade a teenage mom
 
Knocked up by some thug named Russ in the drug game
 
But had the cutest kid you ever seen
 
Then all the pressure from her mom
 
She stepped to Russ
 
Told him it's either them drugs or us
 
Either them thugs or us
 
The ultimatum, either continue bein a thug in the world
 
Or start lovin your girl
 
And say God, bear me witness, no doubt, lovin ya dear
 
But to go from $50 Gees a week to $30 Gees a year
 
That ain't happenin
 
I guess he wasn't that strong
 
He came back the next week, and the whole family was gone
 
Yo they straight moved away, without as little as a word
 
Well, needless to say, Russ was a little perturbed
 
Then in a fury put the pressure on her girlfriend Shawn
 
And like a clumsy chef she spilled the beans on where they had gone
 
 
 
Upstate Schenectady,
 
Tamika answered the door
 
It was the last person she expected to be
 
They just stared
 
He said you love me for me?
 
You can do without the cars, vacations, and jewelry?
 
Down with me?
 
Period.
 
Through life's stress and strife
 
She said, Yeah, He said in that case
 
Would you please be my wife?
 
Then like a sign from the sky, the baby cried
 
Like an angel sings
 
I love y'all more than anything
 
 
 
Chorus:
 
Afro Angel, born against the world
 
You don't have to sell your soul and throw away your pride
 
Afro Angel, sent from heaven above
 
Never forget that you are loved
 
You know that you are loved
 
 
 
(Repeat Chorus)
