No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed

Nina Simone

Step out in the night
When you're lonely
Listening for the sounds
That your ears don't hear

I know your cross is heavier
With every step, every step
But i know a man
And he'd walk miles for you

Stop, you stay where you are
Take a look at yourself
Take a good look at yourself

Can tell your momma
She'd only tell ya
That she told you so

The life you're leading
She won't believe
The riches of life
We all know

Dawn turns to day
And the dawning
Daytime, nighttime
And we still can't see

Why must we wait
Until the morning light
To wake up and be
Wake up and be

Wake up and be
Wake up and be
Wake up and be

Step out in the night
When you're lonely
Listen for the sounds
That your ears don't hear

I know your cross is heavier
With every step, every step
But i know a man
Who'd walk miles for you

Stop, you stay where you are
Take a look at yourself
Take a good look at yourself

Can tell your momma
She'd only tell ya
That she told you so

The life you're leading
She won't believe
The riches of life
We all know

Can tell your momma
She'd only tell ya
That she told you so

The life you're leading
She won't believe
The riches of life
We all know
