As we know, T-Boz & Chilli have been in the studio finishing up the new TLC album (they’ve set a deadline of March 31st).  T-Boz gave us a sneak peek at what she’s working on by posting a video on her LiVideo channel while recording a track called “American Gold,” written by Candace Wakefield & Elvis Brown.  Take note that both Candace and Elvis were part of TLC’s writing camp sessions so it’s likely that this is a TLC track she was working on.  Exciting!!

 

“American Gold”
(C. Wakefield + E. Brown)

Pride starts wars
Seems love has died
Too soon…..When will we try?
I’ll give breath to save your life
Bombs are falling from the sky
I’ll be bold enough to fight
By your side….By your side

I think none of us are safe
We been in and out the race
Cries they echo into space
Tragedies we have to face

I lost some friends…some friends that I didn’t want to
I lost some stars…my heart bleeds red, white and blue
I’ve been in and out of the fire battling for you
Bleeding on American soil

I bleed American gold
On this American soil
We pay for the price it costs
I bleed this American gold
I cry for the one’s I lost
I pray for the ones that don’t
I’m bleedin’ on American Soil
I’m needin’ this American gold

I’m bleedin’ YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, YEAH
I’m bleedin’ American GOLD, GOLD, GOLD, YEAH, YEAH
and it’s leaking from my SOU-OH-OH-OH-OH-OHLLL

Feelin’ undefeated
From the ones who try to have power over you
Don’t let ’em control you
Can’t let ’em get through
Get through

Won’t you let ’em know right now
You won’t let ’em drag you
Yeah, you always gon’ pull through…pull through
You’re coming out strong strong strong
