It's like, I treasure each night
To know that you exist
In the midst of all this shit
You are my higher calling

Pick up when I call ya', I'ma be there in a second
Need directions when you get this message
Something's going on
Earlier this morning, had a feeling that we might've hit the ceiling 
And our purpose ain't fulfilling in this home, so
Maybe we should take some time on it
Put a groove on, and bump and grind on it
And get our mind right, the stars align like our very vessels
And I know that we ain't planets
But I'm knowing something special
Comes from calling heaven
Dollar savings, waiting on a pickup
Stomach bigger, skin is glowing
Girl, I love your figure
This is simple
This is real, something to remember
Had to hit ya, so we could blend
Such a lovely mission

It's like, I treasure each night
To know that you exist
In the midst of all this shit
You are my higher calling

Pick up when I call ya
I was starving for your garden
And I heard that you was thirsty
This is perfect, I got water
We could plant a seed and grow it
Won't nobody know it til' you showin'
Overflowin', overdoing, don't console it
This ain't 'bout no bill collectors asking you for time
Sally Mae can't get connected when you on this line
This is private, this a island, this is more than being worth it
This is calling when yo' lights go out and they start back working
This is unexpected such a blessing
Had to tell you to express it
You wouldn't feel it if I texted no emojis were selected
Because I'm serious bout' this here
Signal strong I'm clear about this here

It's like, I treasure each night
To know that you exist
In the midst of all this shit
Mmm You are my higher calling

Hydration, meditation
Elevation, celebration
This is the higher calling, higher calling
Ooh, we got a higher calling
Higher calling
Higher calling, higher
Higher calling
