Lyrics

1619 © 2020
Intro 1st Verse

Yesterday I woke up a queen
Tonight she’ll be murdered in my dreams
Kidnapped with silent screams
Stolen from history

Taken from my home
Stripped of all my pride
I’m somewhere I don’t know
But I’ve got to stay alive

Landing on these shores
Been drowning all my lives
Blocked at every door
There’s no hope in sight

Traveling through the past
broken to wear a mask
I’m not who I really am
I’m a Stranger to my reflection my reflection

CHORUS
1619 was a new beginning
1619 we became a different enemy (inna me)
1619 strange fruit was hangin
1619 black souls are still sangin

2nd Verse

Today I feel like a queen
Honoring those that came before me
Screaming we got a Victory
With all the Greatness in our History

You built this land we call Home
And I speak of you with so much pride
I’m somewhere I know
It’s because of you I’m alive

I’ve landed near the ocean
It’s been the rhythm of my life
Swim for a new destination
I see it clearly it’s shining bright

Traveled to 1970
That’s when you gave birth to me
Fast forward to 2020
gave birth to great grandmama’s dream

Bridge
I was lost
I was found
Died again
Passed around
In the ocean
I drowned
Resurrected
With a Crown
I was lost
I was found
Died again
Passed around
In the ocean
I drowned
Resurrected
With a Crown

CHORUS
1619 was a new beginning
1619 we became a different enemy (inna me)
1619 strange fruit was hangin
1619 black souls are still sangin
