"Tomorrow" - The Roots ft Raheem DeVaughn [Lyrics + Audio Stream]

The Roots have just shared the second track from their upcoming concept album, And Then You Shoot Your Cousin.

Unlike the dark-themed satire of the previously heard "When The People Cheer," the album's second track is an uplifting R&B cut, with soulful vocals provided by Raheem DeVaughn. "Tomorrow" is a simple tune, with Questlove locked into a no-nonsense rhythm behind a bouncing piano. Black Thought takes a breather for this track, but DeVaughn's full vocals are enough to fill in any gaps. If the first two tracks we've heard from And Then You Shoot Your Cousin are any indication, it will be a diverse and excellent album. Listen above.

The Roots "Tomorrow" lyrics:

Send a message to God in heaven
I'm thankful to be alive
'Cause you sleep from 11 to 7
And work hard from 9 to 5
'Cause can't nobody last forever
And everybody has to die
And everybody needs protection
I pray I don't pass me by

'Cause everybody needs an angel
And everybody needs a smile
And everybody has an angle
And everybody wants tomorrow right now

Some say that happiness will never find you
Until you find yourself
Some say that happiness is all around you
It ain't how you measure your wealth

I say it's free to be yourself
We all fall short sometime
Because nothin'
Because nothin' helps sometimes

'Cause everybody needs an angel
And everybody needs a smile
And everybody has an angle
And everybody wants tomorrow right now

But everybody needs an angel
But everybody needs a smile
And everybody has an angle
And everybody wants tomorrow right now

And everybody wants tomorrow right now
And everybody wants tomorrow right now
And everybody wants tomorrow right now

And Then You Shoot Your Cousin is out May 19th on Def Jam. You can pre-order it through Amazon. For more news, music, and videos, check out The Roots' Zumic artist page.
