Lyrics

[Chorus 1] Everything is everything What is meant to be will be After winter must come spring (Must come spring) Change, it comes eventually Everything is everything What is meant to be will be After winter must come spring (Must come) Change, it comes eventually [Verse 1] I wrote these words (I wrote these words) for everyone who struggles in their youth Who won't accept deception in, instead of what is truth (Gotta know the truth, y'all) It seems we lose the game Before we even start to play Who made these rules? (Who made these rules?) We're so confused (We're so confused) Easily led astray Let me tell ya that... [Chorus 2] Everything is everything Everything is everything Everything is everything (Everything) After winter must come spring Everything is everything [Verse 2] Our philosophy possibly speak tongues Beat drum, Abyssinian, street Baptist (Word) Rap this in fine linen, from the beginning (Word) My practice extending across the atlas, I begat this Flipping in the ghetto on a dirty mattress You can't match this rapper slash actress More powerful than two Cleopatras Bomb graffiti on the tomb of Nefertiti (Ooh, uh) MCs ain't ready to take it to the Serengeti My rhymes is heavy like the mind of sister Betty (El Shabazz!) L-Boogie spars with stars and constellations (What?) Then came down for a little conversation (Huh) Adjacent to the king, fear no human being Roll with cherubims to Nassau Coliseum (What?) Now hear this mixture, where Hip Hop meets scripture (Uh) Develop a negative into a positive picture [Chorus 1] Now everything is everything (Everything, y'all, everything, y'all) What is meant to be will be (What is meant to be will be, yeah) After winter must come spring (After winter, must come spring) Change, it comes eventually (Change, it comes eventually) [Verse 3] Sometimes it seems we'll touch that dream (Sometimes it seems we'll touch that dream) But things come slow or not at all (They come slow, know what I mean?) And the ones on top won't make it stop (Ones on top, they won't make it stop) So convinced that they might fall Let's love ourselves and we can't fail To make a better situation (Better situation, uh-uh) Tomorrow, our seeds will grow (Tomorrow, our seeds will grow) All we need is dedication Let me tell ya that [Chorus 2] Everything is everything Everything is everything Everything is everything (Everything is everything) After winter must come spring Everything is everything (Everything is everything) [Chorus 1] Everything is everything What is meant to be will be After winter (After winter) must come spring (Must come) Change, it comes eventually
