A New Star Is Born (Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes)

I believe when someone passes away Either a star is born, energy so pure That it creates new worlds Or as the soul releases Shatters into pieces Becoming free flowing thoughts For my mental thesis Maybe we just don't understand The spirits that still walk the land Or whatever the case I believe that we all still remain To share the same space So dad, I know you're listenin' How you been? Oh, I'm doin' fine, just passin' time Submerged in sin sometimes I take a bath And just get all dirty again I try to cleanse my mind, cleanse my soul and get in Into that place you've been No, I'm not tryin' to rush anything I just wanna visit you because I miss you So what you tryin' to say?

First of all I give you my thanks for preparing me To be open and free I release my mind releasin' my soul Release the courage to break the mold Release my record 20 million sold Release my pops you're free to go Create a new galaxy, yes dad You'll still be right next to me The day I learned you were gone A new star was born Distant voices fill my mind Said look up in the sky And when I did there you were The day I learned you were gone A new star was born Distant voices fill my mind Said look up in the sky And when I did there you were
