D'Angelo - Another Life Lyrics

How does one attempt to be
The kind of friend that you would want to keep?
I just want to say to thee
Even though it might be hard to believe
The candy-coated thoughts that drift through my sleep
Let me know it's you that holds the key
I got a craving for confection so sweet
For the taste of when our lips first meet

Oh, in another life, I bet you wouldn't know that
Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl

I just wanna take you with me
To secret rooms in the mansions of my mind
Shower you with all that you need
Take my hand, I swear I'll take my time
I'm not surprised to find that angels compete
For the chance to lay down at your feet
I'm gonna touch in all of the places that please
Pull you close
I wanna feel you breathe

Oh, in another life, I bet you wouldn't know that
Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl

It's another reason for the season
I don't wanna break your heart
Oh, in another life, I bet you were my girl, Oh!

    This song makes me realize that love is the only thing we are taking away from this life when we leave to the next. The lesson is to live and love.

  15. Kenneth Mitcham

    How does one attempt to be
    The kind of friend that you would want to keep?
    I just want to say to thee
    Even though it might be hard to believe
    The candy-coated thoughts that drift through my sleep
    Let me know it's you that holds the key
    I got a craving for confection so sweet
    For the taste of when our lips first meet

    enough said...whoever the engineers were, not just for this song but for the album, deserves an award!

    The lyrics made me fall in love again

  40. Toni Kelly

    I bought this album/cd when it first dropped and got hung up on the first 5 songs and continuously played these songs only. One day I was cooking and asked, Alexa, to play D'Angelo and the first song played as Another Life. I said Aleza, repeat, it played again. I'm saying this song is the bomb!!!!! One of the best I've heard from D'Angelo, why don't I know this song? I go to Youtube and played it to find out I have this song on the Black Massiah album that I neglected to listen to its entirety. Now I'm ONLY playing Another Life, I soooo love this song!!!!! Everything about this song makes my soul sing.

  41. Keenya Isabu

    He should never stop singing, his energy makes me feel like he's in love with me and I'm the only one

  53. Ronny P

  54. Love Life

    No matter where I go I always end up here. This has got to be one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

  55. DLloyd_KiiiNG_Israel

    The brilliance of Black Messiah is that D'angelo made it for 2019. If you look around, a lot of Black people are Waking up to the fact that we are the true children of Israel. D'Angelo knew the Awakening was just around the corner, listen to 1000 deaths. In that song he says "the moment of truth is near" . The moment of truth he is referring to is the Awakening of the true children of Israel(The Negros).


    The true Israel are those who are saved in Christ Jesus

  56. playaflyJOE27
