Neneh Cherry - Faster Than The Truth Lyrics




You gave with the hand that took from another
Don't need the leg down, like another
Promise was the promised land
Another habit with my legacy
Belongs to me

Pin ya to the bed, did everything I said
Took me to the dead, look for solid land, mmm

I bore my craft, found a way home
Look at me now, full speed Wikipedia
As fast as I catch you, you update me
Out-beat you like appear, I might cheat ya
Beat you up, business meet you

Creepin' up the med up the side of me head
Play dead, you raise the rent
Not my time
I play dead, you raise the rent
Not my time
Too fast, say that, way back

Hey, you're not my mother
Can I get a witness? I'm lookin' for a father
Hey, you ain't my lover
Ain't lookin' for another, lookin' for another

Don't owe you nothin'
You don't know me, I owe you
You don't owe me somethin'
Don't owe me somethin'
Don't owe me, eh

Lies that travel faster than the truth
Hold it in, isn't that how the man do?
Never can I catch your face
No solid ground, no nearer have I come

Lies travel faster than the truth
Hold it in, isn't that how the man do?
No solid ground, no promised land
No nearer on the run, no nearer have I come

No solid ground, no promised land
All that we outrun, no nearer have I come

Orphanage hangin' off the Great Chinese Wall
Whispers cast and make an empty future call
Longitude, latitude, what I have best
No harness this beast
I don't need to give back, unleash

Gratitude, shit
You gave, I didn't ask for this shit
What you can't have you wont owe
Well, you don't need to ask
With this attitude alone
I've bore this cross
Found a way home
Found a way home

Lies travel faster than the truth
Hold it in, isn't that how the man do?
No solid ground, same song
All the way I run, no nearer have I come

Lies travel faster than the truth

    This album in many ways reminds me of her sophomore lp “Homebrew”. That album was LIT for back in the time when it released and this album has that same feel, reel, infectious rhythm smoothness to it. If you take the time to listen to this entire album(with the exception of the 2 quick interludes) more than 2 or 3 times back to back, I promise you that it will seriously grow on you. That is the sign of a real down to earth true artist with no commercial intentions, just raw like sushi original musical arithmetic staying power. My personal favorite off this album is “Natural Skin Deep”. I easily rate this album a strong 9 out of 10. Yes, Ms. Neneh Cherry knocks this one out of the park, a home run for the win for sure👍🏽! Great to have you back Ms. Cherry.

    OUT.OF.THE.BOX.ROBOT

    Indeed! I agree! This "Faster Than The Truth" Neneh Cherry bug really spreads and delivers...merci ma Cherry!...
