I'm No Longer Gone
I'm no longer gone as for my pain. I can't hide the trouble thoughts. I have grown too old to fall in love, too wise to love. I'm no longer afraid to cry these sorrow sounds, these vanishing cries I once heard. I'm a woman pride to be big bone, pride to be black.
I'm no longer gone as for my pain I can't hide these tears anymore, I can't drown my heart into fear anymore, fear is unexplainable the color of my skin gone to black, too soft, too bright. I'm no longer gone as for my pain I can't hide these trouble thoughts
