Coulda Shoulda Woulda
India.Arie Lyrics


I woke up this morning, turned the TV on
And everything I see is everything that's wrong
And I'm like "Man, turn that off"
Got enough to worry about without thinking 'bout this
Now my Twitter's blowin' up 'cause I spoke my mind online
Got no time for this
Reality is chasing me, my life is like a list

Wake up, wake up, get up, get up
Hustle, hustle, speed up, speed up
I start my day, take time to pray
No time to get to my haters
Wait, did I just say "haters"?
Not wastin' no bars on you
So much potential inside of me
And I'm taking my opportunity

Today I will walk in my power
And today will be my finest hour
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
I live for me, I can't live for you
I have a dream, I have a dream and I do believe

This is the last time (Last time)
I let you play with my mind (My mind)
'Cause now I know better
Now my phone's blowing up 'cause I spoke my mind last night
Got no time for this
Is my heart still beatin'? (Yeah, my heart's still beatin')
I'm over you, I'm over you
Uh-uh, ain't nobody answering that

Wake up, wake up, get up, get up
Hustle, hustle, speed up, speed up
I start my day, take time to pray
No time to give to what's-his-name
Wait, did I just say "what's-his-name"?
Not wastin' my time on him
I know my king is out there for me
So I'll take my opportunity

Today I will walk in my power
And today will be my finest hour
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
I live for me, I can't live for you
I have a dream, I have a dream
So today I will walk in my power
And today will be my finest hour
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
I live for me, I can't live for you
I have a dream, I have a dream and I do believe

Woke up this morning, I pick up my phone
And see this crazy thing as I hear goin' on
And I'm like, "Hold up, they talkin' 'bout me"
Got enough to worry about without thinking 'bout this
I've been black girl magic
20 years I been at it
I'm over you, I got nothing to prove (Nothing to prove)
Or maybe I do
Hollywood's sexist and racist
And still we smile throughout it
You'd be surprised what we doin'
The way we show up and kill shit
I love my brown skin so much
Been that way before Wakanda
So love what you thought or love me
And I, I'll never stop so

Today I will walk in my power
And today will be my finest hour
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
I live for me, I can't live for you
I have a dream, I have a dream
So today I will walk in my power
And today will be my finest hour
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
No more coulda, shoulda, woulda
I live for me, I can't live for you
I have a dream, I have a dream, yeah
