lyrics

Slinky snakey, lurking toward me, I adore you, please
oh please adore me, here that sound like water falling
through you, that’s my heartbeat sweetly calling to
you…

I can see right through you.

And it walls me in, a river with no flow. A heartache
ate my soul. And my youth has paid the toll…and I
know.

See me now, I’ve grown so much calmer, that’s cuz I’ve
disarmed my heavy armor, I no longer have a stammer,
got bold with the world and said, “let’s hammer this
out,” now old scores and debts have been building up, and
the weight of the record…

it hurts me now, worse than when the hurts went down.

And she says to you, don’t let it get you down,
don’t let it go, don’t let it go.
But she don’t know what you think about,
and she don’t know what you talk about,
and she don’t know how it hurts you now,
when it comes to love, when it comes to love!

The world came winning, the hurricane spinning
around and around, how could I know that I’d be the one
to learn to love, I’d place my hand in yours, now I see …

I see.

And she says to you, don’t let it get you down,
don’t let it go, don’t let it go.
And she says to you, boy, don’t let it get you down,
don’t let it go, don’t let it go
But she don’t know what you think about,
and she don’t know what you talk about,
and she don’t know how it hurts me now,
when it comes to love, when it comes to love!
she don’t know what you think about,
and she don’t know how the tears came down
when my heart fell out,
and it’s cuz she barely dreams anymore.

can she wait, can she wait, can she wait for me,
has it been oh too too long, is her loving holding on,
or is it now too too late.

about

Black Queen Speaks Houston, Texas

Formed in Houston, TX but hailing from across the country, Black Queen Speaks came together for a common love of the almighty groove. Their sound is an amalgamation of blues, hard rock, grunge, 70’s funk, dance, and soul peppered with flourishes of 90’s hip hop. In short, Black Queen Speaks can best be described as if Jane’s Addiction and Soundgarden got their asses kicked by James Brown. ... more
