"Soul Run", the first single and title track from Tanika Charles' full length album arriving in early 2016.


Once lived my life on the prairies
Not by choice
He told me we gon' get married, HA!
I was high, I was low, left behind kitchen doors,
Got a woman feeling bagged and weary
Cooking that crab meat drinking Labatts (BLUE)
Blue, in a trailer full up of black (BLACK)
Flies on the window
Feels like that time to change my runnin’

I’m on the road, on the road again I could never look back Never

He said “Baby you’re a cold one”
But I had to leave that town
Take it to the road, hun
Soul Run
Soul Run

I make a mess every place I go
Ha! Ha! Why should here be different, Hey! I’m so fly
I’ve got soul
Get in so much trouble
Got a bunch of brothers fighting over me,
One on my bracelet
One on my mind
Both getting anxious
Alright, Alright
I got my kicks and I said goodbye
Time to change my running

I’m on the road, on the road again I could never look back Never

He said “Baby you’re a cold one”
But I was having too much fun to care
Take it to the road, hun,
Soul Run
Soul Run

Said I’m leaving now, I’m leaving now, I’m leaving you i’m leaving
(I’m leaving, I’m leaving)
Put my bags inside your jeep I stole your keys and now I’m speeding
(I’m leaving, I’m leaving)
