Beyoncé – All Night

All Night

Beyoncé

Found the truth beneath your lies
And true love never has to hide
(True love never has to hide)
I’ll trade your broken wings for mine
(Trade your broken wings for mine)
I’ve seen your scars and kissed your crime
(Seen your scars and kissed your crime)

So many people that I know, they just tryna touch ya
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up on ya
Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again
I’m gonna kiss up, and rub up, and feel up
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up on ya

All night long
Love, all night long
Sweet love, all night long
Sweet love, all night long
All I wanna, ain’t no other
We together, I remember
Sweet love, all night long

Our love was stronger than your pride
Beyond your darkness, I’m your light, oh
If you get deep, you touch my mind
(If you get deep, you touch my mind)
Baptize your tears and dry your eyes
(Baptize your tears and dry your eyes)

So many people I know that they just tryna touch ya
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up on ya
Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again
I’m gonna kiss up, and rub up, and feel up
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up on ya

All night long
Love, all night long
Sweet love, all night long
Sweet love, all night long
All I wanna, ain’t no other
We together, I remember
Sweet love, all night long

They say true love’s the greatest weapon
To win the war caused by pain (pain)
But every diamond has imperfections
But my love’s too pure to watch it chip away (chip a-, chip a-, chip away)
Boy, nothing real can be threatened
True love breathes salvation back into me
With every tear came redemption
And my torturer became my remedy

So many people I know that they just tryna touch ya
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up on ya
Give you some time to prove that I can trust you again
I’m gonna kiss up, and rub up, and feel up
Kiss up, and rub up, and feel up on ya

All night long
Love, all night long
Sweet love, all night long
Sweet love, all night long
All I wanna, ain’t no other
We together, I remember
Sweet love, all night long

How I missed you, my love

Freedom

Beyoncé

Tryna rain, tryna rain on the thunder
Tell the storm I’m new
I’m a wall, come and march on the regular
Painting white flags blue

Lord forgive me, I’ve been running
Running blind in truth
I’ma rain, I’ma rain on this bitter love
Tell the sweet I’m new

I’m telling these tears, go and fall away, fall away
May the last one burn into flames

Freedom
Freedom
I can’t move
Freedom, cut me loose
Singin’, freedom
Freedom
Where are you?
‘Cause I need freedom, too
I break chains all by myself
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Hey! I’ma keep running
‘Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves

I’ma wade, I’ma wave through the waters
Tell the tide, “Don’t move”
I’ma riot, I’ma riot through your borders
Call me bulletproof

Lord forgive me, I’ve been runnin’
Runnin’ blind in truth
I’ma wade, I’ma wave through your shallow love
Tell the deep I’m new

I’m telling these tears, go and fall away, fall away
May the last one burn into flames

Freedom
Freedom
I can’t move
Freedom, cut me loose
Singin’, freedom
Freedom
Where are you?
‘Cause I need freedom, too
I break chains all by myself
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Hey! I’ma keep running
‘Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves

Ten Hail Marys, I meditate for practice
Channel nine news tell me I’m movin’ backwards
Eight blocks left, death is around the corner
Seven misleadin’ statements ’bout my persona
Six headlights wavin’ in my direction
Five-o askin’ me what’s in my possession
Yeah I keep runnin’, jump in the aqueducts
Fire hydrants and hazardous
Smoke alarms on the back of us
But mama don’t cry for me, ride for me
Try for me, live for me
Breathe for me, sing for me
Honestly guidin’ me
I could be more than I gotta be
Stole from me, lied to me, nation hypocrisy
Code on me, drive on me
Wicked, my spirit inspired me
Like yeah, open correctional gates in higher desert
Yeah, open our mind as we cast away oppression
Yeah, open the streets and watch our beliefs
And when they carve my name inside the concrete
I pray it forever reads

Freedom
Freedom
I can’t move
Freedom, cut me loose
Singin’, freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
‘Cause I need freedom, too
I break chains all by myself
Won’t let my freedom rot in hell
Hey! I’ma keep running
‘Cause a winner don’t quit on themselves

What you want from me?
Is it truth you seek?
Oh, Father, can you hear me?
What you want from me?
Is it truth you seek?
Oh, Father, can you hear me?
Hear me out”I had my ups and downs
But I always find the inner strength to pull myself up
I was served lemons, but I made lemonade”
