D'Angelo - Till It's Done (Tutu) Lyrics




In a world where we all circle the fiery sun
With a need for love
What have we become?
Tragedy flows unbound and there's no place to run
Till it's done
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon:
Where do we belong? Where do we come from?
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon
Till it's done

Till it's done

Carbon pollution is heating up the air
Do we really know? Do we even care?
Acid rain dripping on our trees and in our hair
Are you there?
Clock ticking backwards on things we've already built
Sons and fathers die, soldiers, daughters killed
Question ain't "do we have resources to rebuild?"
It's "do we have the will?"

Perilous dissidence evening up the score
Do we even know what we're fighting for?
Destinies crippled and thrown about on the floor
When we're waging war
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon:
Where do we belong? Where do we come from?
Questions that call to us, we all reflect upon
Till it's done

Till it's done

D'Angelo Till It's Done (Tutu) Comments
  1. Amal Nubia

    My favorite song on this album...makes me wanna bull-ride a spaceship and sprinkle change on the planet

  2. Outer.Box.Dissemination

    There’s no other artist out making this type of music. And that’s pretty sad.

  3. Travis Wheeler

    Classic....😎

  4. Trey Charles

    " Carbon pollution is heating up the air

    Do we really know? Do we even care? "

  5. mmbyrner

    What an anthem. What lyrics. What musicianship. As close to perfect as you are going to get

  6. C Nada

    Legitimately one of the greatest albums of all time, and not enough people know it, not even close to enough.

  7. Gabriel Alex ADA

    You got it man 💣

  8. Qan Doe

    !We Don’t Belong!

  9. A. Lynette

    I appreciate this album so much more now than I did when it first came out.

  10. H Ly

    Amazing song amazing album.

  11. Dingolay Star

    D'Angelo's music, no matter which album, makes me feel like a natural woman.

  12. Wes Kim

    im asian but i have to go around to my friends advertising this album ..damn.. since the 90s dangelo has been the epitome of modern black music. his 10 year gap between this and the before album was worth the time. he has matured so much from the previous album

  13. Rice boy

    I played this joant 20 times since weds

  14. mee!! 3!!

    MIND....

  15. mee!! 3!!

    Genius.......

  16. mee!! 3!!

    Wake up!!!!CANT BEAT GOD!!!!!!

  17. 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).

  18. Fomeh Martins

    I dare any freestyle emcee not to start spontaneously spitting at the 3:19 mark. Pure fire!!!

  19. kostas Petriliotis

    incredible sound

  20. RIP Mac Miller, you helped me with a lot

    Makes me tear up full of joy.

  21. martin staton

    Vintage...he gave me that 95 flavor again

  22. Kanaan ite

    D'Angelo is a music legend.

  23. Mulumba Kadiayi

    j dilla + prince =d angelo génie prolifique

  24. Amoré Johnson

    Prince vibes 💜

  25. Amoré Johnson

    ❤🔥🖤

  26. Zenobia Reid

    So ready for another one.....what body of work has even come close to black Messiahs feeling....Dare i say Seat at the table....both analog recordings.

  27. Bernard Johnson

    If I had 3 wishes, one of them would be to hang out with D'Angelo and the Vanguard during their jam sessions.

  28. winter brown

    Psychedelic... my favorite song on the album

  29. bubz75

    Beautiful, modern day Marvin Gaye

  30. holmedw

    D'Angelo is a genius but Pino Palladino's bass drives this album.

  31. RaeRae Jeru

    There's not one album of D'angelo's that i like better than the other. They're all on the same level. PURE DOPENESSSS!!!

  32. Larry Alvarez

    Fav song on the album. This album will go back 30 years from now as a blue print master piece.

  33. Wes Kim

    music at its finest :)

  34. Marcus Reeves

    I'M SPOSE TO BE DOING MY DAMN TAXES BUT I'M STUCK NOW LISTENING TO THE WHOLE DAMN BLACK MESSIAH'S ALBUM AGAIN.

  35. Raymond Mtumbi

    If this does not move you, then I don't know what the hell will. When we say "Make music good again", this is what we should use as the benchmark. Artistic delivery.

  36. Danyal

    Soul power. What a song.

  37. Naijshua Thomas

    Wow! Its a song you feel within your soul. I had to step outside left my company just to take it in.

  38. David Swab

    This song grooves harder than anything. ?uest and Pino make a dynamite pair... nothing quite like it. This is what the old dudes talk about when they talk about ' swing' in big bands. The drums chug along while the guitars are just slow as molasses.

  39. Jonas Bass

    here in argentina.... we love dangelo... or at least i do :D blessings!

  40. X Gin

    Amazing Music!

  41. heifun

    Beautiful

  42. dschwart0

    nice, a tune that stays with me

  43. samajé Manuel

    d'angelo is actually really good when it comes to writing protestish songs

  44. Michael St-Amour

    Incredible as always

  45. Eric Fricke

    If only Jimi were alive to hear this...

  46. Curtis Hall

    You can hear the Sly Stone influences in this song. The drums. The guitars have influenced by the Cure also.

  47. Phÿton

    love this one tooo, so groovy

  48. Phillip Brown

    This is absolutely Masterful musicianship by D angelio and Questlove.

  49. Paul K

    student of prince university

    Jake Miller

    The member of the Dean's List at Prince U.

  50. Julian Jesper
