Curtis Mayfield - Sweet Exorcist Lyrics

Come unto me Lord
Come unto me Lord
Come unto me Lord
Come unto me Lord
Come unto me Lord

Can I call this living?
Letting the world take me
Out of my mind
With such heavy burdens
It's hard for one to think sometimes

I'm so down with depression
But, ain't no use in me killing myself
With your values gone
In this world there's hardly nothing left

Such restlessness, such emphasis, sweet exorcist
Woman I love you

Sometimes it's raining
And all around
It's like a thickening cloud
But the love she gives
It makes me feel so black and proud

So very mystifying
Flutters my heart like the Lord
Is calling me home
Oh baby, you make it so hard for a man to sleep alone

Such restlessness, such emphasis, sweet exorcist
Woman I love you

I believe in the spirit
I know I believe in the spirit
Traveling soul, was alone part of me
Out in this world
It don't take your eyes long to see

Such restlessness, such emphasis, sweet exorcist
Woman I love you

    People don't know about Mayfield, his music was way before it's time.

  14. mister jackson

    I used this as material, to keep me grounded in spirit...when surrounded by material matters..The song does not have to be romantic.

    so beautifull, curtis was a master genius rip x

  18. Erdinger Nullfast

    My aunt used to listen to this album some forty years ago. I didn't think much of that kind of music back then It was ' too far out there' for a young white kid. Now I listen to it again, after forty years and I gotta say, I love it! Prince sounds very similar, maybe Curtis Mayfield influenced Prince in some way . It's awesome music.

    mister jackson

    yo...believe they all studied Curtis

    Jihad Bunnydick

    Chris Byars Prince was influenced by Mayfield

    Quelle douceur, cette voix; quel bonheur d'entendre cet immense artiste. Que dire de sa musique qui l'accompagne divinement dans l'ensemble de son oeuvre. Mon coeur bât à l'unisson des messages d'amour qu'il a transmis. MERCI CURTIS.

  27. Sam DIRSAME

    mankind has gone deaf if no one is listening to this music, I cant believe how few are they People listening to Curtis Mayfield or even know he exists

    George Kassaras

    Every artist has a different message to pass to the people.Curtis Mayfield tried to speak to the soul and especially to the soul of black people.It is a law that the artists that try to make people think about the reality become less popular.Of course artists like Pink Floyd that made people think became extremely popular.But this was due to the extremely high level of music.Look at how many people arr still listening to Michael Jackson today.This is because his music was a breakthrough.Curtis left a legacy.
