The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
Lauryn Hill Lyrics


My world it moves so fast today
The past it seems so far away
And life squeezes so tight that I can't breathe
And every time I try to be, what someone else has thought of me
So caught up, I wasn't able to achieve

But deep in my heart, the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to define my own destiny

I look at my environment
And wonder where the fire went
What happened to everything we used to be
I hear so many cry for help
Searching outside of themselves
Now I know that his strength is within me

And deep in my heart, the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to define my own destiny

And deep in my heart
And deep in my heart, the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind to define my own destiny

My world it moves so fast today
The past it seems so far away
And life squeezes so tight that I can't breathe
And every time I've tried to be
What someone else thought of me
So caught up, I wasn't able to achieve

But deep in my heart
The answer it was in me
And I made up my mind
To define my own destiny 

I look at my environment
And wonder where the fire went
What happened to everything we used to be
I hear so many cry for help
Searching outside of themselves
Now I know that His strength is within me

And deep in my heart
the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind
to define my own destiny
And deep in my heart
the answer it was in me
And I made up my mind
to define my own destiny

I have been listening to this beautiful and classic album for 20 plus years and just now most recently I really listened to this song. And it hit me in the heart. This is the best song on the album. I’ve been repeating it constantly. I don’t care if Lauryn Hill never puts out another song yet alone an albums. She delivered a message. I am gracious to have received it in due time. Much Love to the Queen and the spirit of divine inspiration which spoke through her to write these words and sang these melodies. One Love my fellow GemInEye

E Joseph Gonzalez

Queen Wellness Much Love Queen I am happy you felt something from it. The words the vibration was something I personally needed to hear and in general we all needed to hear it’s herbs for the soul. Sending Light and Love

I'm finally listening to it and it's touching to my soul. It speaks to the incomplete feeling that we will always get when we look to others to make us content. Whether it's there actions, judgment or just plain lack of understanding. Thanks for sharing with me
