Salvation Lyrics

I'm searchin for my salvation
Oh yeah
I'm tired of dragging
On and on
On and on
Day by day
Days with days ?
I can feel the pain
The world is resting on my brain
I can feel the hurt of a broken child
She's going insane
I pray that she'll make it home
Home 3X
Times have changed
But we can rearrange the ills?
Society has swept on my feet
Some words I can't even speak
Still pressin
Movin forward
Blindly
Without a trace
Lookin for a reason to go on
On 3X
I pray to an unknown God
Please reveal yourself to me
Cuz hope is sifting from my hands
Like lost time
I can't make believe
I won't make believe
I can't make believe
When I look into your eyes
Do you know me
I'm searchin for my soul
Searchin on
On
Praying on
On
Looking on
On
I am searching
I am praying
I am looking
Searching on
On
Praying on
On
Looking on
On
On
On
For my salvation.

Goapele (born Goapele Mohlabane on 11th July 1977 in Oakland, California) is a U.S. soul and R&B singer-songwriter. Her name means "to go forward" in the South African language Sesotho. She was born to a Jewish mother, Noa, and an African father, Douglas Mohlabane, who was a South African political exile. They married in Nairobi, Kenya.

Goapele attended the Berkeley Arts Magnet School in Berkeley, California. During these years, she joined several groups that fought racism and sexism. She also sang in the Oakland Youth Choir and joined a group called Vocal Motion. After graduating from high school, Goapele attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where she studied music theory.

In 2001, she signed with Skyblaze Recordings/Columbia Records, and in 2002, she released her first album Even Closer, featuring the single "Closer". She co-wrote and co-produced the entire album, which is a mixture of neo soul and jazz. She also toured North America with band Spearhead.

Apart from her solo work, she has collaborated with rappers Aceyalone, E-40, Hieroglyphics, and Triple Threat, and written for jazz trio Soulive.

Her second album Change It All, featuring the single "First Love", was released in December 2005. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
