Have U ever been so lonely
That U felt like U were the only 1 n this world?
Have U ever wanted 2 play with someone so much
U'd take any 1 boy or girl?

Anna Stesia come 2 me, talk 2 me, ravish me, liberate my mind
Tell me what U think of me, praise me, craze me out this space and time

Between white and black, night and day
Black night seemed like the only way
So I danced
Music late, nothin' great, no way 2 differentiate
I took a chance
Gregory looks just like a ghost
And then a beautiful girl the most wets her lips 2 say
"We could live 4 a little while if U could just learn 2 smile
U and I could fly away, fly away"

Oh Anna Stesia come 2 me, talk 2 me, ravish me, liberate my mind
Tell me what U think of me, praise me, craze me out this space and time

What's happening, what's happening?
Looks like Cat's stoned
I'm drowning and I'm flying
I feel so bad and I feel so good
Oh
Ow
Uh

I wanna take Anna away with me
I like the feelin' never afraid
R U hot 4 Dr. Fink?
Can U brave this world without me?
"Of course," he says, "That's not Fink
That's Anna Stesia rappin', I think
I can't remember but those I adore
I can't remember what I was prayin' 4"

Save me Jesus, I've been a fool
How could I 4get that U r the rule
U r my God, I am Ur child
From now on, 4 U, I shall b wild
I shall b quick, I shall b strong
I'll tell Ur story no matter how long
No matter how... no no no...

Please take us back and hold our hand
And lead us 2 Lovesexy land
We're just a play n Ur master plan
Now, my Lord, I understand
I understand

Love is God, God is love, girls and boys love God above {repeat}
