Solange Knowles Cranes In The Sky

I tried to drink it away

I tried to put one in the air

I tried to dance it away

I tried to change it with my hair

I ran my credit card bill up

Thought a new dress would make it better

I tried to work it away

But that just made me even sadder

I tried to keep myself busy

I ran around in circles

Think I made myself dizzy

I slept it away, I sexed it away

I read it away

Away, away, away, away, away, away

Away, away, away, away, away

Well it’s like cranes in the sky

Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

Yeah it’s like cranes in the sky

Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

I tried to run it away

Thought then my head be feeling clearer

I traveled 70 states

Thought moving around make me feel better

I tried to let go my lover

Thought if I was alone then maybe I could recover

To write it away or cry it away (don’t you cry it baby)

Away, away, away, away, away, away

Away, away, away, away, away

But it’s like cranes in the sky

Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

Yeah it’s like cranes in the sky

Sometimes I don’t wanna feel those metal clouds

Away, away, away, away, away, away

Away, away, away, away, away

Solange Knowles I Decided

Ooh

Can’t hear myself (no nooo)

Can you please turn me up a little bit more

Running only slows you down the way

When every minute moving’s yours to take

We turn time into shapes

The way you loving me

We turn hours into space

We put seconds into stars

The way you loving me

Turn circles into hearts, oh baby

Solange Knowles Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work

I’ve seen you with the lights off

I’ve seen you and you think you love me

I’ve seen you with your hat off

I’m dreaming of a time you knew me

So baby, is it all you’ve got?

Tell me if you got some more-ore

I’m thinking of some time off, off

I’m dreaming of a time that you knew me

Some things never seem to fucking work

Remember when you kissed me (kissed me)

At Jimmy Jones when I was 17

Convinced myself you were the shit (were the shit)

Convinced myself you love me

So baby, is that all you’ve got?

Tell me if you got some more-ore

I’m thinking of some time off, off

I’m dreaming of a time that you knew me

So maybe then we’re better off

So maybe if it’s all you wanted it

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

So maybe then we’re better off

So maybe if it’s all you wanted it

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Remember when you missed me (missed me)

We’d accidentally meet purposely

Convinced that we were meant to be (meant to be)

Convinced myself you love me

So baby, is it all you’ve got?

Tell me if you got some more-ore

I’m thinking of some time off (time off, off)

I’m dreaming of a time that you knew me

So maybe then we’re better off

So maybe if it’s all you wanted it

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

So maybe then we’re better off (better off)

So maybe if it’s all you wanted it

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Some things never seem to fucking work

So tell me, is it real love? Some kind of mistake

They made together that we couldn’t anticipate?

And my attraction to you may bother much worse

But it’s either something maybe

A longing and hattried of myself

But one or two end up alone

So the night I saw you, I could pretend I felt you

You’re beautiful and I felt like everybody saw

But the truth is, so much that I hated your endorsement

Try and deny it, I tried to fight it

But I bought you red color with a 99 buff

Looking for the diamond line to us

But eventually become a asshole

To the others, the group from the outside world

So now I’m calling out for a way

To give myself in

Remember when you kissed me, when I was 17

Your skin so soft and you were the shit

But you loved me

So maybe then we’re better off

So maybe if it’s all you wanted it

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

So maybe then we’re better off (better off)

So maybe if it’s all you wanted it

Leave me alone

Leave me alone

Some things never seem to fucking work

Solange Knowles Would’ve Been The One

Enlightening charmer, sent from where

A Casanova, lovely glare

And I was chosen, I was there

The wells get deeper, more unfolds

And at the bottom, there she goes

But wells are endless, I’ve found more

Flowers candy flirty late nights

On the speed dial, that was you too

Dinner movie sweet heart kisses

He don’t dance, but tangles with two

I thought you plus me divided me from him

But I discovered, many more and again again

And you don’t know, you fill many spaces

And she don’t know, she’s one of many lies

And he don’t know, how he stole many places

And we all know, we can’t fix him if we tried

I would’ve been the one

I held the title, wore the crown

I was the trophy, while you ducked down

And she was cool with just fooling around

(Yes she was, yes she was, yes she was)

Now number four was there to ride

And five was crazy, his wild child

And when we’re rocky he calls number nine

Flowers candy flirty late nights

On the speed dial, that was you too

Dinner movie sweet heart kisses

He don’t dance, but tangles with two

I thought you plus me divided me from him

But I discovered, many more and more and again

And you don’t know, you fill many spaces

And she don’t know, she’s one of many lies

And he don’t know, how he steals many places

And we all know, we can’t fix him if we tried

I would’ve been the one

I was the one, yes I was the one

And yes that was my name

Inked up on his arm

And if he loved me that much

and still did me wrong

You feeling sorry, but you are holding on

I was the one, yes I was the one

Key word is was, yes I was the one

I figured out he was empty on my own

He had to find the answer

in something or someone

And you don’t know, you fill many spaces

And she don’t know, she’s one of many lies

And he don’t know, he stole many places

And we all know, we can’t fix him if we tried

I would’ve been the one

Do do do doo do do

I would’ve been the one

Solange Knowles Locked In Closets

When I was just a girl I felt just so alone

Locked myself in closets thinking, “If I was the only one”

Dim light shining on my room

Locked up in this old cocoon

Look at me, I’m just a girl Still feeling so alone

Looking at myself thinking, ”Best to come and easy go”

Street light shining on my room

Locked up in this old cocoon

And all I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

All I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

All I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

All I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

When I was just a girl I wore a thousand lives

Heading on a search for the thing that makes me feel alright

Ten black moments in my room

Diamonds shimmers from the moon

And now I’m just a girl living in the satellite

Took what I needed from this town and getting down at night

Street light shining in my room

Getting out the suns up soon

And all I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

All I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

All I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

All I wanted was the dream of being in love with you

Solange Knowles Valentine’s Day

I met a lovely fellow

Sitting right there beside me

On a spring day

Maturity had his mercy

Cause he seem so close to perfect

In just every way

We parted ways but

By May I was in his arms

Different by the proof that

I was feeling

Oh how love

And tell you just what to do

It has no time, no place

It’s just chooses you

We parted ways by November

But I hope by December

You think of me and you remember

Oh how love

Solange Knowles God Given Name

[Spoken:] Exclusive, Exclusive, Welcome to Solange & The Hadley Street Dreams

Get me get me out of this box

I feel so claustrophobic in here

Leave your labels lead with no vision

Here my voice and fill with your ears

I’m no soul girl equipped with no afro

I’m just my God given name

I’m not becoming expectations

I’m not her and never will be

Two girls going in different directions

Traveling towards the same galaxy

Let my starlight shine on it’s own

No I’m no sister

I’m just my God given name

And I’m sorry that this planet that I’m living on is quizzical

My lyrical ambitions sometimes don’t ring a bell

I’m sorry if my visual don’t line up with my feelings

And my physical exhibit doesn’t represent me well

I’m sorry if I’m curious, delirious and I don’t take life serious

I’m living the life of a millionaire

And I’m sorry if I’m talking shit

But I really do mean well

We’ve got a long long moon to glow

Hadley’s a long road to travel

I gotta dream to keep my eyes open

We’ve got a long long moon to glow

Hadley’s the long road to travel

I gotta dream to keep my eyes open

We’ve got so long to go

We’ve got so far to go

Hadley’s the long road

Hadley’s the long road

God given name

[Spoken:] I sound high don’t I

I was going to ask you what’s the matter

[laughs] I promise I’m not high
