                (Uishi kwa, uishi kwa)

                [Verse 1]
                Yeah, yeah, and the wind is talkin'
                Yeah, yeah, for the very first time
                With a melody that pulls you towards it
                Paintin' pictures of paradise

                Sayin' rise up
                To the light in the sky, yeah

                Spirit, can you hear it callin'? (Callin')

                [Verse 2]
                Yeah, yeah, and the water's crashin'
                Trying to keep your head up high
                While you're trembling, that's when the magic happens
                And the stars gather by, by your side

                Sayin' rise up
                To the light in the sky, yeah
                Let the light lift your heart up

                And be one with the Great I Am, I Am
                A boy becomes a man, woah

                Spirit, watch the heavens open (Open)
                Spirit, can you hear it callin'? (Callin')
                Spirit, yeah, watch the heavens open, open
                Spirit, spirit, can you hear it callin'? (Callin')

                    This is the best news song I have heard in a very long time. Well done, Beyoncé. You made proper use of that African influence you made sure to put in there.

                                      Listen to this on the loudest volume.
                                      Just sit there and listen...

                                      Like this has to be one of my favorite Bey slow tempos.

                                      The build up.

                                      Can you imagine this live?

                                              this doesn't fit in the Lion King we got this pop crap instead of Shadowland seriously.

                                                                                    I know this is random but this is the last song I’ll probably listen to bc I’m about to kill myself soon. I have nothing else to live for and I’m tired. I feel like I’ve failed in life. I don’t want attention which is why I won’t mention my name or anything & so I thought I’d put this amongst billions & trillions of YouTube comments to get lost in them. I’ve tried every other option but I don’t feel I belong here. I feel so bad for my mom god pls. I just want better. I want relief. I pray that god has mercy on my soul bc I only mean well & I don’t know what else to do. I pray that god doesn’t punish me for what I’m about to do. Im 19 and doing the best I can mentally & physically. I didn’t mean to type this much. Btw I love this song sm. I cried the first time I heard it. It actually makes me feel like I’ll be ok one day. Maybe after I’m dead I can rest finally. I wasn’t one of those lucky ones.

Hey listen, things will always get hard in life but no matter how much shit you are going through, life will eventually get better. Please remember there is people who loves you and will always be there to talk with someone. Suicide won't solve anything, only pass away the problem to someone else. Please talk to someone and I recommend you to listen to 'You will be found' by the musical dear evan hansen! Much love to you 💞💞💛❤🧡💜💙

I caught the video on the ABC special Tuesday night. I was awestruck, got chills, and then came the tears. You're without a doubt the Queen!💜👑 The music videos you drop are always incredible, but when I watched the majesty and splendor played out with all of the colors representing the breath-taking beauty and richness of Africa and its people? I felt compelled to leave a comment. Anyone that has not seen the music video to Spirit. Trust me. You are going to be blown away.❤🌍🌅🦁💜💙💚💛❤🦁👑🎬
