"Clean Heart" from Sade's 1988 album "Stronger Than Pride."

Clean heart
Clean and sharp
Clean dream
Bad start

He loved his brother and his sister
Luke and Tony called him "Mister"
They made him feel much more like a man
He loved his daddy though he never told him
And how he loved his mama
He loved, he loved her like, like an Italian

Little Janet said you look so fine, so fine
Something in his smile
Made them feel like strangers
And then he straightened his belt
With a lover's touch
And he said I'm gonna bring home
The things that are out of your clutch

Seemed like the hottest night in summer
A heat that makes you feel like dying
Somewhere in the next block
There was a baby crying
Finger on the trigger for the years to come

Finger on the trigger for the years to come

And as the moon slid up
Over the restless streets
Sirens mocking and people stop to see
Oh, their greedy eyes don't realize
He's someone's son
Finger on the trigger for the years to come

Finger on the trigger for the years to come

Comparing beyonce or any other female so called vocalist too sade is just bad joke.! Sade is light years ahead of them!!! Sade is a talented lady that can blend herself too any musical medium and make it sound better caress and mold it too musical perfection. Like her there will never be another. The Angel of song and soul. God bless the gift of sade.

That B is in no way comparable to Sade. Maybe B could be compared to and empty garbage can.

I dedicate this to Tyler Lord. Sorry your life was taken at such a young age. You wanted the best for your mom because you loved her so much that it became one of your main goals to give the best for her. Even though you attempted doing so by earning it the proper and legal way, your precious life was stolen at 17 by the "finger on the trigger". I'm so sorry Tyler. Sorry that I wasn't there to tell you not to go out that evening. I love you and I will do my best to comfort your mom, and my dear friend. Rest in Perfect Peace Baby!
