Broken Silence Lyrics

Broken Silence - Foxy Brown/Darius

 

 

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear

The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid

When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh

My enemies and foes they stumbled and fell

 

Though an army may encamp against me

 

My heart shall not fear

 

Though war may rise against me

 

In this I will be confident

 

 

 

I will survive

 

 

 

Take these broken wings (these broken wings)

 

And let them fly again

 

And let them live so free (you taught me how to fly fly)

When we hear the voices sing

 

The book of love will open up and let us in

 

 

Feel like I've got this black cloud hangin' over me

It's like this pain is takin' control of me

Every move I make determines my fate

Feel like I'm dying slow and that's the sh*t I hate

The constant pressure the b******t rumors

The outcast I'm the one they love to badge

When the records stop sellin'

And the crowds stop yellin'

All I have is me

 

Bet you thought I'd die without you

 

But see how I'm still living

Thought that I would self destruct

But I'm still here with another one

 

Even though I felt crumbled I made it through the rumble

Torn apart a young woman scorned

Coping with the pain nearly drove me insane

In the hospital crying in the pain

 

All types of medications flowing through my veins

 

Take these broken wings (these broken wings)

And let them fly again

And let them live so free

 

When we hear the voices sing (I will learn I will learn how to fly)

The book of love will open up and let us in

 

 

Please understand I'm a human first

 

And before Foxy Brown I'm just still Inga

And my family is my whole life

 

And I cherish this ring that you put on my finger

We survived through the roughest stones

 

Sleeping with our baby pit bull on the basement floors

 

And through it all you and I felt we could be strong

All through the rough times through the pains and storms

And it's like when it rains it pours

All they see is gray and blue they don't know you like I do

Five years committed y'all just don't understand

No career no fame meant more than my man

And to my fans that slept through it all

 

Through the rise and the fall I love y'all all

Even when I nearly lost my mind

Some remained loyal ignored the headlines and

 

Take these broken wings (take these broken wings)

 

And let them fly again

And let them live so free (let em fly let em fly)

When we hear the voices sing (voices sing)

 

The book of love will open up and let us in

 

 

 

Story of my legacy this can't be life

 

Lord I feel like I'm fallin'

Praying for strength I'm losing my mind

And how can you fly when your wings are broken

And how can I smile when my heart is broken

Through all the pain I've felt that's the hand I'm dealt

My personal problem stays in my home

 

Know I won't discuss them reporters I don't trust 'em

 

Take these broken wings (these broken wings)

 

And let them fly again

And let them live so free (I wanna see them fly)

When we hear the voices sing

 

The book of love will open up and let us in

Take these broken wings (take these broken wings)

And let them fly again (oohh)

 

And let them live so free (let them live so free so free)

When we hear the voices sing (yeahh)

The book of love will open up and let us in

 

 

 

Teach me how to fly

 

(ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh-ooh)

Teach me how to fly

I believe in the power of love

 

(ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)

Can't you hear me don't you hear me

 

(ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh-ooh)

I'm calling out to you

 

Foxy help me sing

(ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh)

 

 

These broken wings
