Between my shadow and my soul

Inspired by Soul Soap Season One Episode 4- The Clot




I Pray Openly (to the tune of Natasha Bedingfield's I bruise easily)


The world is a prayer mat, with one centre

I expose my shame, but it’s so uplifting

So I cover up, banish arrogance, my body is a shroud,

I fall in Your Love, trust easily, leave the world to be


I pray openly, let them stare in incredulity,

There’s flight in my bowing, like nitrus on a Ferrari,

I pray openly, don’t ignore the submission you see

Everywhere, I pray openly, I pray openly


My knees imprint on the stone of a parking lot,

Fitting rooms, restaurants, even the outside of a movie theatre,

But this is my truth, my flame I return to, away from the cold,

So I can’t miss one Salaah, there’s no other truth calling me


This prayer, keeps me alive, living

This prayer, keeps me alive, living


God is great

Forget the world

Far away

I will fly


The world is a prayer mat, with one centre

I expose my shame, but its so uplifting

So I cover up, banish arrogance, my body is a shroud,

I fall in Your Love, trust easily, leave the world to be


I pray openly, let them stare in incredulity,

There’s flight in my bowing, like nitrus on a Ferrari,

I pray openly, don’t ignore the submission you see

Everywhere, I pray openly, I pray openly

lol azzy. she was one of the female singers i loved at the single and unwritten stage but lost faith in when she sang i wanna have ur babies. like kelly clrakson who was cool until she sanf my life would suck without you. where are all the independent ladies!!!!

Noojie pie, thats haq right there. I was on that bandwagon too, until she started belting stuff about having babies. And I was like "No girl..huh-uh" lol

And I hate the new Kelly Clarkson. It's mediocre at best and the only reason it's popular is because it has the word "suck" in it. That sounds dirty lol :D
