Numaads - Wanting Lyrics

Wanting to reach beyond the point where my existence is validated
Though my peace o' earth[ful ?] [sleep?]
I can't settle in it, with it
Or however it's [written ?]
Lets me know how I'm meant to do
More than stay within
The limits of whatever's expected of a black woman
Or a civilian for that matter
Student, person, whatever, with the
Sun reflectin' off the waves I feel safe
No challenge or change in sight
It's just gettin' later and later
And my dreams they grow greater
Till I almost can't fathom the journey that I have to go on
Know it, it's just a matter of minutes
'Fore I be on
Yeah, I'm going crazy with this space time [?]
Livin' and learnin' in obscurity (uh)
Thoughts of future success and blessings keep me company
Yet times when it gets dark enough [?] the sunlight
I'll paint the scenery I need to see behind
[Hook]
Once another place
I will feel greater
I will do greater
I will be better
Once another place
I will feel greater
I will do better things
[Verse 2]
Lookin' at my predecessors' growing reach
Got their backs turned, yet I hear them speak
Can't, nor even wanna tune 'em out
[?] gettin' closer feel the spotlight on my cheek
[And a ?] free show in a week and I'm not feelin' it
Can't pay the rent with applause nor could I [bothered ?]
I tried, but failed, well damn
At least now I'm able to write that line in my rhyme
Payment's late and only half of the original fee
My wallet's empty as a [poster ?]
The fat promoter that booked me after
Remain positive
No it feeds me when I'm not [?]
I come back I'll only have more to give
Yo, recognize, your hands are up when I speak
And I rock plenty of shows with just a mic and beat
I'm not complainin', I just know there's more in store for me
But till then, just listen to my stories and daydreams
[Hook]
Once another place
I will feel greater
I will do greater
I will be better
Once another place
I will feel greater
I will do better things
