We Are
Jon Batiste Lyrics


Uh, I started feelin' somethin'
Haha, my bad

The ghetto is full of stars
Watch them shine from afar
On days when it's hard
And always
Nana knows how to sing
And soothes us all
From summer to fall
And always

Joy
She won't let it go
Oh no
Joy
That she doesn't know
That she doesn't know

We are, we are, we are, we are the golden ones (oh, oh)
We are, we are, we are, we are the chosen ones
We are, we are, we are, we are the chosen ones
We are, we are, we are, we are the golden ones

We're never alone, no, no
We're never alone

The country is full of stars
But they're in a war
Blind in the dark
He's hoping to medicate
The painful ache
To change his fate

Joy
He won't let it go
Oh no
Joy
That he doesn't know
What he doesn't know

We are, we are, we are, we are the golden ones
We are, we are, we are, we are the chosen ones (we are)
We are, we are, we are, we are the chosen ones (we are, oh, oh)
We are, we are, we are, we are the golden ones

We're never alone, no, no
We're never alone

And then I said, uh
(Neither angel or a king could break this thing)
(We gotta get our soul)
(We get that inner peace, you hear me? Haha)
(Ain't nothing, man cannot give you that)
One, two, ready and

We are never alone, yeah
We are never, we're never alone
We are never alone

We are, we are, we are, we are the golden ones (we're never alone, no, no)
We are, we are, we are, we are the chosen ones (we're never alone, no, no)
We are, we are, we are, we are the chosen ones (we're never alone, no, no)
We are, we are, we are, we are the golden ones (we're never alone, no, no)

(Yeah, they save songs about these wars)

Tell the truth, ooh
Tell the truth, ooh
Tell the truth, ooh
Tell the truth, ooh
Tell the truth, ooh
Tell the truth, ooh
Tell the truth

Clicked on this because I had no idea who this was that won the Grammy album of the year. I expected to listen for about 30 seconds and then leave puzzled as to what the appeal is. Much to my surprise I find myself intrigued by the style and the voice and I plan to visit this entire album. I doubt that it will become a favorite of mine but I will give it a chance. I'm glad I dropped in. Congrats on winning Album of the Year.

I guess Grammy really know what they're doing. It's not about main stream and getting millions of followers. We need to listen to music that touch the soul and talk about love often. Thank u Grammy.
