"A Long Walk" as written by Jill H. Scott and Andre Harris....
You're here, I'm pleased
I really dig your company
Your style, your smile, your peace mentality
Lord, have mercy on me
I was blind, now I can see
What a king's supposed to be
Baby I feel free, come on and go with me

Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
Find a spot for us to spark
Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
Elevations, maybe we can talk about Surah 31:18

Your background it ain't squeaky clean (shit)
Sometimes we all got to swim upstream
You ain't no saint, we all are sinners
But you put your good foot down and make your soul a winner
I respect that, man you're so phat
And you're all that, plus supreme
Then you're humble man I'm numb
Yo with feeling, I can feel everything that you bring

Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
Find a spot for us to spark
Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
Elevations, maybe we can talk about Revelation 3:17

Or maybe we can see a movie
Or maybe we can see a play on Saturday (Saturday)
Or maybe we can roll a tree and feel the breeze and listen to a symphony
Or maybe chill and just be, or maybe
Maybe we can take a cruise and listen to the Roots or maybe eat some passion fruit
Or maybe cry to the blues
Or maybe we could just be silent
Come on, Come on

Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
Find a spot for us to spark
Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
Elevations, maybe we can talk about Surah 31:18

Let's take a long walk around the park after dark
Find a spot for us to spark
Conversation, verbal elation, stimulation
Share our situations, temptations, education, relaxations
Elevations, maybe baby, maybe we can save the nation
Come on, Come on

    General CommentWhat can you say? Ms. Scott is elegance supreme in this tune. She pays homage to the roots of feel-good, smooth R&B on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The video that she made was for this song was absolutely spot on. I hear this tune, I think of Summer Madness (Kool & the Gang) and Happy Feelings (F. Maze) all in one. Reminds of the good times of being totally into somebody and just being happy in their company talking shit.

    General Commentim probably the only person i know who can stand this song. i just like that its a different type of love song, more intellectual and mental than physical.

    General CommentThis song means that a long walk can do a lot for two people trying to figure out one another. You can talk about a lot of things, and learn a lot about the other person just by taking a nice long walk together.

    General CommentIntellect is mental.

    "You get to use your mind, your brain, and your head."
    -Jack Black 'School of Rock'

    Just kidding. This is a great song. She definitely hits on the fact that there is more than one type of intercourse.

    General Commentgreat song...nice message, simple...getting to know a person's opinion on a lot of things...relaxed...the lyrics are wrong at a certain point, though, it's suppose to be 'Revelations 3:17' at a certain part. I love this song.
