CeeLo Green – Blackskin Mile Lyrics

CeeLo Green Blackskin Mile Lyrics

Well, I lost my shadow in violent sin
Never knew the search would be within
Drew a picture of my only desire
Take me back to Blackskin Mile

I thought my karma would be my fate
Never saw the sun until it was too late
And oh, drew my loneliness, chasing every last high
Take me back to Blackskin Mile

I never met a madman’s soul
That I didn’t see reflections of that which I own
But I know there’s something better outside
So, won’t you take me back to Blackskin Mile

I walk a valley of a thousand streams
In retrieval of my self-esteem
I see a world in you where I may dream high
Take me back to Blackskin Mile

I have fallen, but I kept my soul
Though I felt darkness in the light, I never let go
That last solitary seconds of my life, won’t you
Take me back to Blackskin Mile

And with our resolutions high
And with our pretty words in lies
Survival comes with sacrifice
I run toward the burning to feel alive

Ooh, found my shadow in a violent sky
And in my bleeding she’d watch me cry, lawd
Tears of happiness, my only one desire
Take me back to Blackskin Mile

I said, take me Black to Blackskin Mile
One more time, take me back to Blackskin Mile
Oh yes, take me Black to Blackskin Mile
