Esperanza Spalding Performs at the White House Poetry Jam: (5 of 8)


(applause) ♪♪ Ms. Spalding:
Let me be patient let me be kind Make me unselfish without being blind ♪♪ Though I may suffer
I’ll envy it not And endure what comes Cause he’s all I’ve got and let me tell him Tell him I need him Tell him I love him it’ll be alright ♪♪ Now I may have strength to make mountains fall But if I lack love I am nothin’ at all I can give away
everything I possess But even without love
then I have no happiness Now I know I’m imperfect
and not without sin But now that I’m older all childish things end and tell him… Tell him I need him Tell him I love him And it’ll be alright Now I won’t be jealous And I won’t be too proud Cause love is not boastful and love is not loud Tell him I need him Tell him I love him And everything will be alright Alright… now… I may have wisdom knowledge on Earth But if I speak wrong what is it worth? See what we now know
is nothing compared to the love that was shown when our lives were spared So… So tell him… ♪♪ Tell him I need him Tell him I love him And it’s gonna be It’s gonna be alright All right… All right… Tell him I Tell him I need him Love him that nothing
compared to the life that was shown when our
lives were spared Tell him It’s gonna be All… All right. (applause)
