Lyrics

There was a black man, beautiful
Was a good friend of mine,
Give me wisdom,
help me to unwind
His grandfather came from Nigeria,
Raised in Nassau town
Knows about the world,
Can't hide and can't be found

When I needed someone,
You gave me your hand,
Traveled all the planet,
Power from the Land,
Walk on the seashore,
Cooling out in the wind,
Born in the light,
Free from all the sin

Joel Joel Joel

Cut from the goodness
carved from the heart and soul,
Life's a bitch,
and time will take it's toll,
a black pearl shining,
I can't hear the rap,
Some spread love,
and some folks need a map

Joel Joel Joel
Joel Joel Joel

Talk about heaven, talk about hell
I remember Paradise, I recognize the smell
Saw you standing next to God,
It didn't seem strange and it didn't seem odd

Joel Joel Joel
Joel Joel Joel

Dream about tomorrow,
But dig what's happening now,
Never took a lesson,
Nobody ever showed you how,
never mind the bad stuff
Never mind the rules,
Never mind the plans
And never mind the tools
