 (by David Jeffries)

When the U.K. press began dubbing Adele "the next Amy Winehouse" in late 2007, the hype didn't touch upon the heavy singer/songwriter influence found in the Londoner's music. Influenced by Roberta Flack and Suzanne Vega as much as Jill Scott, Adele soon became a phenomenon in her own right; her second album, 21, eventually sold an estimated 30 million copies worldwide, making her one of the few sales successes in an age of digital streaming.

Adele first made an impression in 2006 when her demo landed her a deal with XL Recordings. She toured as an opening act for Jack Penate, and graduated to headlining status by the end of 2007, thanks to BBC Radio 1 playing her single "Daydreamer"; another song, "Hometown Glory," was also released as a single on Jamie T.'s label, Pacemaker. An appearance alongside Paul McCartney and Björk on the BBC 2 television show Later with Jools Holland came next, and a recording contract with XL Recordings was finalized soon after. Early 2008 brought similar luck as Adele found herself atop the BBC's new music talent list, which was compiled from the votes of 150 music critics. That same January, XL issued a new single, "Chasing Pavements," along with her debut album, 19. The title reflected Adele's age at the time of the album's release, and its popularity resulted in the release of several bonus editions throughout the year. Also in 2009, Adele won Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.

Her sophomore album, 21, featuring the gospel and disco-infused single "Rolling in the Deep," was released in February of 2011. The album proved to be both a critical and commercial success, becoming one of the longest-running number one albums in history and spending over 18 weeks at the top spot. The glow of 21's success was dimmed somewhat when Adele was forced to cancel her tour after suffering a hemorrhage on her vocal chords. She underwent surgery for the hemorrhage in November of 2011. That same month, she released the concert CD/DVD Live at the Royal Albert Hall. Both Adele and 21 received many end-of-year honors, and in February 2012, as album sales began to creep closer to ten million copies, she won six major Grammy awards, one of the few artists in history to accomplish the feat in one night.

In October 2012, Adele announced that she had recorded the theme to the 23rd Bond film Skyfall. Produced by Paul Epworth and recorded at the prestigious Abbey Road Studios, the single entered the Top Ten of both the U.K. singles chart and the Billboard Hot 100 on release. By early 2013, 21 had registered sales of over 25 million copies. Although she promised she was in the early stages of creating her third album, 2013 and 2014 came and went without fresh material. In the summer of 2015, reports of an imminent third album started to surface and in October, the rumors were confirmed by Adele and her label. Preceded by the single "Hello" -- a single that debuted at number one in both the U.K. and U.S., becoming the first song to sell over a million downloads in the first week of release -- 25 debuted worldwide in late November 2015.

Daydreamer

Daydreamer
Sitting on the sea
Soaking up the sun
He is a real lover
Of making up the past
And feeling up his girl
Like he's never felt her figure before

A jaw dropper
Looks good when he walks
Is the subject of their talk
He would be hard to chase
But good to catch and he could change the world
With his hands behind his back, oh

You can find him
Sitting on your doorstep
Waiting for the surprise
And he will feel like he's been there for hours
And you can tell that he'll be there for life

Daydreamer
With eyes that make you melt
He lends his coat for shelter
Plus he's there for you
When he shouldn't be
But he stays all the same
Waits for you, then sees you through

There's no way I
Could describe him
What I've said is
Just what I'm hoping for

But I will find him
Sitting on my doorstep
Waiting for a surprise
And he will feel like he's been there for hours
And I can tell that he'll be there for life
And I can tell that he'll be there for life

Best For Last

Wait, do you see my heart on my sleeve
It's been there for days on end and
It's been waiting for you to open up
Just you baby, come on now
I'm trying to tell you just how
I like to hear the words
Roll out of your mouth finally
Say that it's always been me

That's made you feel a way
You've never felt before
And I'm all you need
And that you'd never want more
Then you'd say all of the right things
Without a clue
But you'd save the best for last
Like I'm the one for you

You should know
That you're just a temporary fix
This is not rooted with you
It don't mean that much to me
You're just a filler in the space
That happened to be free
How dare you think you'd get away
With trying to play me

Why is it every time
I think I've tried my hardest
It turns out it ain't enough
Cause you're still
Not mentioning love
What am I supposed to do
To make you want me properly
I'm taking these chances
And getting nowhere
And though I'm trying
My hardest you go back to her
And I think that I know
Things may never change
I'm still hoping one day
I might hear you say

I make you feel a way
You've never felt before
And I'm all you need
And that you'd never want more
Then you'd say all of the right things
Without a clue
But you'd save the best for last
Like I'm the one for you

You should know
That you're just a temporary fix
This is not rooted with you
It don't mean that much to me
You're just a filler in the space
That happened to be free
How dare you think
You'd get away
With trying to play me

But, despite
The truth that I know
I find it hard to let go
And give up on you
Seems I love the things you do
Like the meaner you treat me
More eager I am
To persist with this heartbreak
Of running around
And I will do until I
Find myself with you

And make you feel a way
You've never felt before
And be all you need
So that you'll never want more
Then you'd say all of the right things
Without a clue
And you'll be the one for me
And me the one for you

Chasing Pavements

I've made up my mind
Don't need to think it over
If I'm wrong I am right
Don't need to look no further
This ain't lust
I know this is love but

If I tell the world
I'll never say enough
'Cause it was not said to you
And that's exactly what I need to do
If I'd end up with you

Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even If I knew my place
Should I leave it there
Should I give up
Should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere

I build myself up
And fly around in circles
Waiting as my heart drops
And my back begins to tingle
Finally could this be it or

Should i give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there
Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere, yeah

Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there
Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Should I just keep chasing pavements

Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there
Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere

Cold Shoulder

You say it's all in my head
And the things I think
Just don't make sense
So where you been then
Don't go all coy
Don't turn it round on me
Like it's my fault

See I can see
That look in your eyes
The one that shoots me
Each and every time

You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me I wish I was her

These days, when I see you
You make it look like I'm see-through
Do tell me why you waste our time
When your heart ain't in it and you're not satisfied

You know I know just how you feel
I'm starting to find myself feeling that way too

When you grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me and wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me and wish I was her

Time and time again I'll play the role of fool
Just for you
Even in the daylight when you're gaming
I don't see through
I try to look for things I hear but my eyes never find
Though I do know how you play

You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me and wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me and wish I was her

You grace me with your cold shoulder
Whenever you look at me and wish I was her
You shower me with words made of knives
Whenever you look at me and wish I was her

Crazy For You

Found myself today
Singing out loud your name
You said I'm crazy
If I am, I'm crazy for you

Sometimes sitting in the dark
Wishing you were here turns me crazy
But it's you who makes me loose my head

And every time I'm meant to be
Acting sensible you drift into my head
And turn me into a crumbling fool

Tell me to run and I'll race
If you want me to stop I'll freeze
And if you want me gone I'll leave
Just hold me closer baby

And make me
Crazy for you
Crazy for you

Lately with this state I'm in
I can't help myself but spin
I wish you'd come over
Send me spinning closer to you

My oh my, how my blood boils
It's sweetest for you
It strips me down bare
And gets me into my favorite mood

I keep on trying, i'm fighting
These feelings away
But the more I do
The crazier I turn into

Pacing floors
And opening doors
Hoping you'll walk through
And save me boy

Because I'm too
Crazy for you
Crazy for you

Melt My Heart To Stone

Right under my feet is air made of bricks
That pulls me down and turns me weak for you
I find myself repeating like a broken tune
And I'm forever excusing your intentions

Then I give in to my pretendings
Which forgive you each time
Without me knowing
They melt my heart to stone

And I hear your words that I made up
You say my name like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head
I'm the only one in love
I'm the only one in love

Each and every time I've turned round to leave
I feel my heart begin to burst and bleed
So desperately I try to link it with my head
But instead I fall back to my knees

As you tear your way right through me
I forgive you once again
Without me knowing
You've burnt my heart to stone

And I hear your words that I made up
You say my name like there could be an us
I best tidy up my head
I'm the only one in love
I'm the only one in love

Why do you steal my hand
Whenever I'm standing my own ground
You build me up and leave me there

Where I hear your words you made up
I say your name like there should be an us
I best tidy up my head
I'm the only one in love
I'm the only one in love

First Love

So little to say but so much time
Despite my empty mouth the words are in my mind
Please wear the face, the one where you smile
Because it'll lighten up my heart when I start to cry

Forgive me, first love, but I'm tired
I need to get away to feel again
Try to understand why
Don't get so close to change my mind

Please wipe that look out of your eyes
It's bribing me to doubt myself
Simply, it's time

This love has dried up and stay behind
And if I stay I'll be a lie
Then choke on words I'd always hide
Excuse me, first love, but we're through
I need to taste a kiss from someone new

Forgive me, first love, but I'm too tired
I'm bored to say the least and I, I lack desire
Forgive me, first love, forgive me, first love
Forgive me, first love, forgive me, first love, forgive me
Forgive me, first love, forgive me, first love

Right As Rain

Who wants to be right as rain
It's better when something is wrong
You get excitement in your bones
And everything you do's a game

When night comes and you're on your own
You can say I chose to be alone
Who wants to be right as rain
It's harder when you're on top

Cause when hard work don't pay off
And I'm tired
There ain't no room in my bed
As far as I'm concerned
So wipe that dirty smile off we
Won't be making up
I've cried my heart out
And now I've had enough of love

Who wants to be riding high
When you'll just crumble back on down
You give up everything you are
And even then you don't get far
They make believe that everything
Is exactly what it seems
But at least when you're at your worst
You know how to feel things

See when hard work don't pay off
And I'm tired
There ain't no room in my bed
As far as I'm concerned
So wipe that dirty smile off we
Won't be making up
I've cried my heart out
And now
I've had enough of love

Go ahead and steal my heart to make me cry again
'Cause it will never hurt as much as it did then
When we were both right and no one had blame
But now I give up on this endless game

'Cause who wants to be right as rain
It's better when something is wrong
I get excitement in my bones
Even though everything's a strain
When night comes and I'm on my own
You should know I chose to be alone
Who want to be right as rain
It's harder when you're on top

'Cause when hard work don't pay off
And I'm tired
There ain't no room in my bed
As far as I'm concerned
So wipe that dirty smile off we
Won't be making up
I've cried my heart out
And now I've had enough of

No room in my bed
As far as I'm concerned
So wipe that dirty smile off we
Won't be making up
I've cried my heart out
And now I've had enough of love

Make You Feel My Love

( Bob Dylan )

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shatters and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling down the avenue
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love

My Same

You said I'm stubborn and I never give in
I think you're stubborn 'cept you're always softening
You say I'm selfish, I agree with you on that
I think you're giving I think way too much in fact
I say we've only known each other one year
You say pffft I've known you longer my dear
You like to be so close, I like to be alone
I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor
Walking with each other think we'd never match at all
But we do, but we do, do, do, do
But we do, but we do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do

I thought I knew myself, somehow you know me more
I've never known this never before
You're the first to make up whenever we argue
I don't know who I'd be if I didn't know you
You're so provocative, I'm so conservative
And you're so adventurous, I'm so very cautious, combining
You'd think we wouldn't but we do
But we do, do, do, do
But we do, but we do, do, do, do, do, do, do

Favouritism ain't my thing
But in this situation I'd be glad
Favouritism ain't my thing
But in this situation I'd be glad
To make an exception

You said I'm stubborn and I never give in
I think you're stubborn 'cept you're always softening
You say I'm selfish, I agree with you on that
I think you're giving I think way too much in fact
I say we've only known each other one year
You say pffft I've known you longer my dear
You like to be so close, I like to be alone
I like to sit on chairs and you prefer the floor
Walking with each other think we'd never match at all
But we do


Tired

Hold my hand
While you cut me down
It had only just begun
But now it's over now

And you're in the heat of moments
With your heart playing up cold
I'm between the middle
Watching hastiness unfold

On my eyes
You were smiling in the spotlight
Dancing with the night
When I fell off your mind

I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don't get nothing back

And for what, and for what, and for what
When I don't get nothing back
Oh, I'm tired

Where do you go
When you stayed behind
I looked up and inside down
And outside only to find

A double taking, punching heartache
Laughing at my smile
I get closer
You obviously prefer her

I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don't get nothing back

And for what, and for what, and for what
When I don't get nothing back

Oh, I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don't get nothing back

And for what, and for what, and for what
When I don't get nothing back
Oh I am tired

I
Should have
Known

Nevermind
Said your open arms
I couldn't help the leap
That tripped me back into them

Even though I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don't get nothing back

And for what, and for what, and for what
When I don't get nothing back

Well, I'm tired of trying
Your teasing ain't enough
Fed up of buying your time
When I don't get nothing back

And for what, and for what, and for what
When I don't get nothing back
Well, I'm tired

Hometown Glory

I've been walking in the same way as I did
Missing out the cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel and strutting my feet
"Is there anything I can do for you dear?
Is there anyone I could call?"
"No and thank you, please Madame
I ain't lost, just wandering"

Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Oh the people I've met

Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world
Are the wonders now

I like it in the city
When the air is so thick and opaque
I love to see everybody
In short skirts, shorts and shades
I like it in the city
When two worlds collide
You get the people and the government
Everybody taking different sides

Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit
Shows that we are united
Shows that we ain't gonna take it
Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit
Shows that we are united

Round my hometown
Memories are fresh
Round my hometown
Oh the people I've met, yeah

Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of my world
Are the wonders of this world
Are the wonders of my world

Rolling In The Deep

There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark
Finally, I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I'll lay your ship bare

See how I'll leave with every piece of you
Don't underestimate the things that I will do
There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can help feeling

We could have had it all
(I wish you, never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hands
(I wish you, never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

Baby I have no story to be told
But I've heard one on you
And I'm gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Make a home down there
As mine sure won't be shared

(Felt that I wish you, never had met me)
The scars of your love remind me of us
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
(Felt that I wish you, never had met me)
The scars of your love they leave me breathless
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
I can help feeling

We could have had it all
(I wish you, never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hands
(I wish you, never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hands
But you played it
To the beat

Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You'll pay me back in kind and reap just what you've sown

(Felt that I wish you, never had met me)
We could have had it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
(Felt that I wish you, never had met me)
It all, it all, it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

We could have had it all
(I wish you, never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hands
(I wish you, never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

We could have had it all
(I wish you, never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hands
(I wish you, never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

But you played it
You played it
You played it
You played it to the beat

Rumour Has It

She, she ain't real
She ain't gonna be able to love you like I will
She is a stranger
You and I have history, or don't you remember
Sure, she's got it all
But baby is that really what you want

Bless your soul you got your head in the clouds
You made a fool out of you, and boy she's bringing you down
She made your heart melt but you're cold to the core
Now rumour has it she ain't got your love anymore

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)

She is half your age
But I'm guessing that's the reason that you've stayed
I heard you been missing me
You've been telling people things you shouldn't be
Like when we creep out
She ain't around
Haven't you heard the rumours

Bless your soul you got your head in the clouds
You made a fool out of me and boy I'm bringing you down
You made my heart melt yet I'm cold to the core
But rumour has it I'm the one you're leaving her for

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)

All of these words whispered in my ear
Tell a story that I cannot bear to hear
Just 'cause I said it don't mean that I meant it
People say crazy things
Just 'cause I said it
Don't mean that I meant it
Just 'cause you heard it

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it (rumour)

Rumour has it (rumour)
Rumour has it
But rumour has it he's the one I'm leaving you for

Turning Tables

Close enough to start a war
All that I have is on the floor
God only knows what we're fighting for
All that I say, you always say more

I can't keep up with your turning tables
Under your thumb, I can't breathe

So I won't let you close enough to hurt me
No, I won't ask you, you to just desert me
I can't give you what you think you gave me
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
To turning tables

Under haunted skies I see you
Where love is lost, your ghost is found
I've lived a hundred storms to leave you
As hard as you try, no I will never be knocked down

I can't keep up with your turning tables.
Under your thumb, I can't breathe.

So I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no
I won't ask you, you to just desert me
I can't give you what you think you gave me
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
Turning tables

Next time I'll be braver
I'll be my own savior
When the thunder comes for me
Next time I'll be braver
I'll be my own savior
Standing on my own two feet

I won't let you close enough to hurt me, no
I won't ask you, you to just desert me
I can't give you what you think you gave me
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables
To turning tables
Turning tables, yeah
Turning, oh

Don't You Remember

When will I see you again
You left with no goodbye, not a single word was said
No final kiss to seal any sins
I had no idea of the state we were in

I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head

But don't you remember
Don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby please remember me once more

When was the last time you thought of me
Or have you completely erased me from your memory
I often think about where I went wrong
The more I do, the less I know

But I know I have a fickle heart and bitterness
And a wandering eye, and a heaviness in my head

But don't you remember
Don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby please remember me once more

I gave you the space so you could breathe
I kept my distance so you would be free
In hope that you'd find the missing piece
To bring you back to me

Why don't you remember
Don't you remember
The reason you loved me before
Baby please remember me once more
When will I see you again

Set Fire to the Rain

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell, you also claim it
It was dark, and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me
My hands, they're strong, but my knees were far too weak
Stand in your arms without falling into your feet

But there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true.
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

When laying with you, I could stay there
Close my eyes, feel you here forever
You and me together, nothing is better

'Cause there's a side to you that I never knew, never knew
All the things you'd say, they were never true, never true
And the games you'd play, you would always win, always win

But I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Well I felt something die
'Cause I knew that there was the last time, the last time

Sometimes I wake up by the door
Now that you've gone, must be waiting for you
Even that when we're already over
I can't help myself from looking for you

I set fire to the rain
Watched it pour as I touched your face
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Well I felt something die
'Cause I knew that there was the last time, the last time

Let it burn, oh
Let it burn
Let it burn

He Won't Go

Some say I'll be better without you
But they don't know you like I do
Or at least the sides I thought I knew

I can't bear this time
It drags on as I lose my mind
Reminded by things I find
Like notes and clothes you left behind

Wake me up, wake me up when all is done
I won't rise until this battle's won
My dignity's become undone

But I won't go
I can't do it on my own
If this ain't love, then what is
I'm willing to take the risk

I won't go
I can't do it all alone
If this ain't love, then what is
I'm willing to take the risk

So petrified, I'm so scared to step into this ride
What if I lose my heart and fail declined
I won't forgive me if I give up trying

I heard his voice today
I didn't know a single word he said
Not one resemblance to the man I met
Just a vacant broken boy instead

But I won't go
I can't do it on my own
If this ain't love, then what is
I'm willing to take the risk

I won't go
I can't do it all alone
If this ain't love, then what is
I'm willing to take the risk

There will be times
We'll try and give it up
Bursting at the seams, no doubt
We'll almost fall apart then burn the pieces
To watch them turn to dust
But nothing will ever taint us

I won't go
I can't do it on my own
If this ain't love, then what is
I'm willing to take the risk

I won't go
I can't do it all alone
If this ain't love, then what is
I am willing to take the risk

Will he, will he still remember me
Will he still love me even when he's free
Or will he go back to the place where he
Would chose the poison over me

When we spoke yesterday
You said to hold my breath to sit and wait
I'll be home so soon, I won't be late

He won't go
He can't do it on his own
If this ain't love, then what is
He's willing to take the risk

So I won't go
He can't do it on his own
If this ain't love, then what is
We're willing to take the risk

'Cause he won't go
He can't do it on his own
If this ain't love, then what is
We're willing to take the risk

I won't go
I can't do it on my own
If this ain't love, then what is
I'm willing to take the risk

Take It All

Didn't I give it all
Tried my best
Gave you everything I had
Everything and no less
Didn't I do it right
Did I let you down
Maybe you got too used to
Having me around
Still, how can you walk away
From all my tears
It's gonna be an empty road
Without me right here

But go on and take it
(Take it)
Take it all with you
Don't look back
(Don't look back)
At this crumbling fool
Just take it all
With my love
Take it all
With my love

Maybe I should leave
To help you see
Nothing is better than this
And this is everything we need
So is it over
Is this really it
You're giving up so easily
I thought you loved me more than this

But go on, go on and take it
(Take it)
Take it all with you
Don't look back
(Don't look back)
At this crumbling fool
Just take it all
With my love
Take it all
With my love

I will change if I must
Slow it down and bring it home, I will adjust
Oh, if only, if only you knew
Everything I do is for you

But go on, go on and take it
(Take it)
Take it all with you
Don't look back
(Don't look back)
At this crumbling fool

Just take it
(Take it)
Take it all with you
Don't look back
(Don't look back)
At this crumbling fool
Just take it all
With my love
Take it all
With my love
Take it all
With my love

I'll Be Waiting

Hold me closer one more time
Say that you love me in your last goodbye
Please forgive me for my sins
Yes, I swam dirty waters
But you pushed me in

I've seen your face under every sky
Over every border and on every line
You know my heart more than I do
We were the greatest, me and you

But we had time against us
And miles between us
The heavens cried
I know I left you speechless
But now the sky has cleared and it's blue
And I see my future in you

I'll be waiting for you
When you're ready to love me again
I put my hands up
I'll do everything different, I'll be better to you

I'll be waiting for you
When you're ready to love me again,
I put my hands up
I'll be somebody different, I'll be better to you

Let me stay here for just one more night
Build your world around me and pull me to the light
So I can tell you that I was wrong
I was a child then, but now I'm willing to learn

But we had time against us
And miles between us
The heavens cried
I know I left you speechless
But now the sky has cleared and it's blue
And I see my future in you

I'll be waiting for you
When you're ready to love me again
I put my hands up
I'll do everything different, I'll be better to you

I'll be waiting for you
When you're ready to love me again,
I put my hands up
I'll be somebody different, I'll be better to you

Time against us
Miles between us
Heavens cried
I know I left you speechless

Time against us
Miles between us
Heavens cried
I know I left you speechless
I know I left you speechless
I'll be waiting

I'll be waiting for you
When you're ready to love me again
I put my hands up
I'll do everything different, I'll be better to you

I'll be waiting for you
When you're ready to love me again
I put my hands up
I'll be somebody different, I'll be better to you

One and Only

You've been on my mind
I grow fonder every day
Lose myself in time
Just thinking of your face
God only knows
Why it's taken me so long
To let my doubts go
You're the only one that I want

I don't know why I'm scared
I've been here before
Every feeling, every word
I've imagined it all
You'll never know if you never try
To forget your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your
Your one and only
Promise I'm worth it
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

If I've been on your mind
You hang on every word I say
Lose yourself in time
At the mention of my name
Will I ever know
How it feels to hold you close
And have you tell me
Whichever road I choose, you'll go

I don't know why I'm scared
'Cause I've been here before
Every feeling, every word
I've imagined it all
You'll never know if you never try
To forget your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your
Your one and only
I promise I'm worth it
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
Nobody's pefect
I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
Trust me I've learned it
Nobody's pefect

I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
Trust me I've learned it
Nobody's pefect
I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
Trust me I've learned it
Nobody's pefect
I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
Trust me I've learned it

So I dare you to let me be your
Your one and only
I promise I'm worth it
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

Come on and give me a chance
To prove I am the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

Love Song

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you

However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I'll always love you

Someone Like You

I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now
I heard that your dreams came true
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you

Old friend, why are you so shy
It ain't like you to hold back
Or hide from the light

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I had hoped you'd see my face
And that you'd be reminded that for me, it isn't over

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg, I remember you say
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead"
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah

You'd know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised in a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it
I'd hoped you'd see my face
And that you'd be reminded that for me, it isn't over

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg, I remember you say
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead", yeah

Nothing compares, no worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes they're memories made
Who would have known how bitter sweet this would taste

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me, I beg, I remember you say
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead"

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg, I remember you say
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead"
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah, yeah

Hello

Hello, it's me
I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet
To go over everything
They say that time's supposed to heal you
But I ain't done much healing
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
Hello, can you hear me
I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be
When we were younger and free
I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

There's such a difference
Between us
And a million miles

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry
For everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter it clearly
Doesn't tear you apart anymore

Hello, how are you
It's so typical of me to talk about myself I'm sorry
I hope that you're well
Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened
It's no secret that the both of us
Are running out of time

So hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter it clearly
Doesn't tear you apart anymore

Highs highs highs highs
Lows lows lows lows
Anymore

Highs highs highs highs
Lows lows lows lows
Anymore

Highs highs highs highs
Lows lows lows lows
Anymore

Highs highs highs highs
Anymore
Lows lows lows lows

Hello from the other side
I must have called a thousand times
To tell you I'm sorry for everything that I've done
But when I call you never seem to be home

Hello from the outside
At least I can say that I've tried
To tell you I'm sorry for breaking your heart
But it don't matter it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

I Miss You

I want every single piece of you
I want your heaven and your oceans too
Treat me soft but touch me cruel
I want to teach you things you never knew baby

Bring the floor up to my knees
Let me fall into your gravity
Then kiss me back to life to see
Your body standing over me

Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Down, down, down

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight, don't let go
Baby give me light

I miss you when the lights go out
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight, don't let go
Baby give me light
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
I love the way your body moves
Towards me from across the room
Brushing past my every groove
No one has me like you do, baby

Bring your heart I'll bring my soul
But be delicate with my ego
I want to step into your great unknown
With you and me setting the tone

Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Baby don't let the lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Lights go down, lights go down
Down, down, down

I miss you when the lights go down
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight, don't let go
Baby give me light

I miss you when the lights go down
It illuminates all of my doubts

Baby give me light

We play so dirty in the dark
'Cause we are living world's apart
It only makes it harder baby
It only makes it harder baby
Harder baby, harder baby

It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight, don't let go
Baby give me light

I miss you when the lights go down
It illuminates all of my doubts
Pull me in, hold me tight, don't let go
Baby give me light

I miss you, I miss you, I miss you...

When We Were Young

Everybody loves the things you do
From the way you talk
To the way you move

Everybody here is watching you
'Cause you feel like home
You're like a dream come true

But if by chance you're here alone
Can I have a moment before I go
'Cause I've been by myself all night long
Hoping you're someone I used to know
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
You look like a movie
You sound like a song
My god this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old it made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

I was so scared to face my fears
Nobody told me that you'd be here
And I swear you moved overseas
That's what you said when you left me

You still look like a movie
You still sound like a song
My god this reminds me
Of when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old it made us restless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song

When we were young, when we were young
When we were young, when we were young

It's hard to admit that
Everything just takes me back
To when you were there
To when you were there

And a part of me keeps holding on
Just in case it hasn't gone
I guess I still care
Do you still care

It's was just like a movie
It was just like a song
My god this reminds me
Of when we were young

When we were young, when we were young
When we were young, when we were young

Let me photograph you in this light
In case it is the last time that we might
Be exactly like we were before we realised
We were sad of getting old it made us restless

Oh I'm so mad I'm getting old it makes me reckless
It was just like a movie
It was just like a song
When we were young

Remedy

I remember all of the things that I thought I wanted to be
So desperate to find a way out of my world and finally breathe
Right before my eyes I saw my heart it came to life

This ain't easy
It's not meant to be
Every story has it's scars

But when the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy

When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
No river is too wide or too deep for me to swim to you
Come whatever I'll be the shelter that won't let the rain come through
Your love it is my truth and I will always love you
Love you

When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be your remedy

When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
I promise you will see
That I will be, I will be your remedy

When the pain cuts you deep
And the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
I will be, I will be

When the world seems so cruel
And your heart makes you feel like a fool
Just look and you will see
I will be, I will be, I will be
Your remedy

Water Under The Bridge

If you're not the one for me
Then how come I can bring you to your knees
If you're not the one for me
Why do I hate the idea of being free

And if I'm not the one for you
You've got to stop holding me the way you do
Oh honey if I'm not the one for you
Why have we been through what we have been through

It's so cold out here
In your wilderness
I want you to be my keeper
But not if you are so reckless

If you're gonna let me down
Let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge

If you're gonna let me down
Let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge

What are you waiting for
You never seem to make it through the door
And who are you hiding from
It ain't no life to live like you're on the run
Have I ever asked for much
The only thing that I want is you love

If you're gonna let me down
Let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge

If you're gonna let me down
Let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
It's so cold out here
In your wilderness
I want you to be my keeper
But not if you are so reckless

If you're gonna let me down
Let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge

If you're gonna let me down
Let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love ain't water under the bridge

Say it ain't so, say it ain't so, say it ain't so...
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge

Say it ain't so, say it ain't so, say it ain't so...
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge
Say that our love ain't water under the bridge

River Lea

Everybody tells me its 'bout time that I moved on
That I need to learn to lighten up and learn how to be young
But my heart is a valley it's so shallow and manmade
I'm scared to death if I let you in that you'll see I'm just a fake

Sometimes I feel lonely in the arms of your touch
But I know that's just me cause nothing ever is enough
When I was a child I grew up by the River Lea
There was something in the water now that something's in me
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
Oh I can't go back
But the reeds are growing out of my fingertips
I can't go back
To the river

But it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood
And I stain
Every heart that I use to heal the pain

But it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood
And I stain
Every heart that I use to heal the pain

So I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea, the River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea, the River Lea

I should probably tell you now before it's way too late
That I never meant to hurt you or to lie straight to your face
Consider this my apology I know it's years in advance
But I would rather say it now incase I never get the chance

No I can't go back
But the reeds are growing out of my fingertips
I can't go back
To the river

But it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood
And I stain
Every heart that I use to heal the pain

Oh it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood
And I stain
Every heart that I use to heal the pain

So I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea, the River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea, the River Lea

So I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea, the River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea, the River Lea

Love In The Dark

Take your eyes off of me so I can leave
I'm far too ashamed to do it with you watching me
This is never ending we have been here before
But I can't stay this time cause I don't love you anymore
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
Please stay where you are
Don't come any closer
Don't try to change my mind
I'm being cruel to be kind

I can't love you in the dark
It feels like we're oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Baby we're already defeated
Everything changed me

You have given me something that I can't live without
You mustn't underestimate that when you are in doubt
But I don't want to carry on like everything is fine
The longer we ignore it all the more that we will fight

Please don't fall apart
I can't face your breaking heart
I'm trying to be brave
Stop asking me to stay

I can't love you in the dark
It feels like we're oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Baby we're already defeated
Everything changed me

We're not the only ones
I don't regret a thing
Every word I've said
You know I'll always mean
It is the world to me
That you are in my life
But I want to live and not just survive

That's why I can't love you in the dark
It feels like we're oceans apart
There is so much space between us
Baby we're already defeated
'Cause everything changed me
And I don't think you can save me

Million Years Ago

I only wanted to have fun
Learning to fly learning to run
I let my heart decide the way
When I was young

Deep down I must have always known
That this would be inevitable
To earn my stripes I'd have to pay
And bare my soul
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
I know I'm not the only one
Who regrets the things they've done
Sometimes I just feel it's only me
Who can't stand the reflection that they see

I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky not just the floor
I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry

I miss the air I miss my friends
I miss my mother I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago

When I walk around all of the streets
Were I grew up and found my feet
They can't look me in the eye
It's like they're scared of me

I try to think of things to say
Like a joke or a memory
But they don't recognise me now
In the light of day

I know I'm not the only one
Who regrets the things they've done
Sometimes I just feel it's only me
Who never became who they thought they'd be

I wish I could live a little more
Look up to the sky not just the floor
I feel like my life is flashing by
And all I can do is watch and cry

I miss the air I miss my friends
I miss my mother I miss it when
Life was a party to be thrown
But that was a million years ago
A million years ago

All I Ask

I will leave my heart at the door
I won't say a word
They've all been said before you know

So why don't we just play pretend
Like we're not scared of what is coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Look don't get me wrong I know
There is no tomorrow
All I ask

Is if this is my last night with you
Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do
What lovers do
It matters how this ends
'Cause what if I never love again

I don't need your honesty
It's already in your eyes
And I'm sure my eyes they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you're the only one that mattered
Tell me who do I run to
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
Look don't get me wrong I know
There is no tomorrow
All I ask

Is if this is my last night with you
Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do
What lovers do
It matters how this ends
'Cause what if I never love again

Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don't want to be cruel or vicious
And I ain't asking for forgiveness
All I ask

Is if this is my last night with you
Hold me like I'm more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do
What lovers do
It matters how this ends
Cause what if I never love again

Sweetest Devotion

With your loving
There ain't nothing
That I can't adore
The way I'm running with you honey
Means we can break every law
I find it funny that you're the only
One I never looked for
There is something in your loving
That tears down my walls

I weren't ready then
I'm ready now
I'm heading straight for you
You will only be eternally
The one that I belong to

The sweetest devotion
Hit me like an explosion
All of my life I've been frozen
The sweetest devotion I know

I'll forever be whatever
You want me to be
I'd go under and all over
For your clarity
When you wonder
If I'm gonna lose my way home
Just remember That come whatever
I'll be yours all along
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
I weren't ready then
I'm ready now
I'm heading straight for you
You will only be eternally
The one that I belong to

The sweetest devotion
Hit me like an explosion
All of my life I've been frozen
The sweetest devotion I know

I've been looking for you baby
In every face that I've ever known
And there is something about the way you love me
That finally feels like home

You're my light, you're my darkness
You're the right kind of madness
You're my hope, you're my despair
You're my scope of everything everywhere

The sweetest devotion
Hit me like an explosion
All of my life I've been frozen
The sweetest devotion I know

The sweetest
It's the sweetest
The sweetest
It's the sweetest

The sweetest
It's the sweetest
The sweetest
It's the sweetest
Devotion

Can't Let Go

When did it go wrong, I will never know
I have loved you all my life
How did it slow down, I go round and round
Thinking about it all the time

I gave you heaven on a platter baby
I gave you everything you never gave me
I never lied and I never faked it
Only wanted for you to save me
This love, it ain't all greed
There's too much that I haven't said

Did you find the note that I wrote
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write with a lump in my throat
Do you even know I can't let go

Why were you so cold, let the truth me told
Tell me was it all for the thrill?
What was I thinking, I gave you everything
But you still went for the kill
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
I gave you heaven on a platter baby
I gave you everything you never gave me
I never lied and I never faked it
Only wanted for you to save me

Did you find the note that I wrote
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write with a lump in my throat
Do you even know I can't let go

Oooh sometimes I feel like I'm in the dark
Oooh I thought I died in your arms

Did you find the note that I wrote
I hid it in the seam of your coat
It was hard to write, I had a lump in my throat
Do you even know that I can't let go

Hope you know, I won't let go

Lay Me Down

I would never lie to you unless you tell me to
Every part of me, all my words to hold
And hold against me, why won't you let it be

Don't you ever say my love opened up your heart
No I'm not gonna do it standing up
The words don't come out right when you're right in front of me
Help me baby, won't you turn off the lights

Lay me down ('til the morning)
Lay me down (through the night)
Lay me down (I can fall in)
Lay me down (Won't you)
Lay me down (I can baby)
Lay me down (Someone believe me)

I would never break the rules unless you tell me to
You can read my mind, be it truth or lies
Lie down beside me, why won't you let it be?

Don't you ever say my love opened up your heart
No I'm not gonna do it standing up
The words don't come out right when you're right in front of me
Help me baby, won't you turn off the lights
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
Lay me down ('til the morning)
Lay me down (through the night)
Lay me down (I can fall in)
Lay me down (Won't you)
Lay me down (I can baby)
Lay me down (Someone believe me)

Lay down with me
Lay down with me
Lay down with me
Lay down with me

Words don't come out right when you're right in front of me
Help me baby, won't you turn off the lights

Lay me down ('til the morning)
Lay me down (through the night)
Lay me down (I can fall in)
Lay me down (Won't you)
Lay me down (I can baby)
Lay me down (Someone believe me)

Why Do You Love Me

Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me
Copy, paste, robots, i'm so tired of them
Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me

Why do you love me
There must be something in the water
'Cause baby I'm in deeper than I knew
How do you keep me coming back for more
After all we've been through
I can't decide if I should run and hide

It's above and beyond me, the start of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me

Who knows why I love you
It could be something in the air I breath
Whatever it is, I bleed
Where does the time go
I spend every single moment daydreaming of you
I can't describe how I feel, it feels right

It's above and beyond me, the start of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me

You were a shock in the dark that blew me away
And you left your mark and it never will fade
You ignited a spark, let the fires away
Are you ready, ready
You have a place in my heart that will always be yours
You are the peak and dark of my universe
Every piece and part, you were the first
I am ready, ready

It's above and beyond me, the start of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you

It's above and beyond me, the start of my hands
Your love drives me crazy, it's hard to understand just why
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me
I want you to love me

Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me, do you love me
Why do you love me, do you love me

Black and Gold

(Sam Sparro cover | BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge, Jan. 2008)

If the fish swam out of the ocean
And grew legs and they started walking
And the apes climbed down from the trees
And grew tall and they started talking

And the stars fell out of the sky
And my tears rolled into the ocean
Now I'm looking for a reason why
You even set my world into motion

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
But it's all just a bunch of matter
'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold

I looked up into the grey/great sky
And see a thousand eyes staring back
And all around these golden beacons
I see nothing but black

I feel a way of something beyond them
I don't see what I can feel
If vision is the only validation
Then most of my life isn't real

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
But it's all just a bunch of matter
'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold

'Cause if you're not really here
Then the stars don't even matter
Now I'm filled to the top with fear
But it's all just a bunch of matter
'Cause if you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold
Black and gold

If you're not really here
Then I don't want to be either
I wanna be next to you
Black and gold
Black and gold
Black and gold

Dreaming of You

( The Coral Cover )

It's up with my heart when it skips a beat
Can't feel no pavement right under my feet

Up in my lonely room
When I'm dreaming of you
Oh what can I do I still need you
But I, I don't want you now

It's up with my heart when it skips a beat
Can't feel no pavement right under my feet

Up in my lonely room
When I'm dreaming of you
Oh what can I do I still need you
But I, I don't want you now

When I'm down and my hands are tied
I cannot reach a pen for me to draw the line
With this pain I just can't disguise
It's gonna hurt but I'll have to say goodbye

Up in my lonely room
When I'm dreaming of you
Oh what can I do I still need you
But I, I don't want you now

Up in my lonely room
When I'm dreaming of you
Oh what can I do I still need you
But I, I don't want you now

Fast love

(George Michael / Live at Grammy awards 2017)

Looking for some education
Made my way into the night
All that bullshit conversation
Baby can't you read the signs

I won't bore you with the details baby
I don't even wanna waste your time
Let's just say that maybe
You could help me ease my mind
I ain't Mr. Right

But if you're looking for fastlove
If that's love in your eyes
It's more than enough
Had some bad love
Some fastlove is all that I've got on my mind
copy paste robots kill the internet
Looking for some affirmation
Made my way into the sun
My friends got their ladies
And they're all having babies
I just wanna have some fun

I won't bore you with the details baby
I don't even wanna waste your time
Let's just say that maybe
You could help me ease my mind
I ain't Mr. Right

But if you're looking for fastlove
If that's love in your eyes
It's more than enough
Had some bad love
Some fastlove is all that I've got on my mind

Oh, baby, baby
Oh, baby, baby
Oh, baby, baby
Oh

In the absence of security
I made my way into the night
Stupid cupid keeps on calling me
But I see nothing in his eyes

I miss my baby
I miss my baby
Miss my baby
I miss, I miss, I miss, I miss my baby
I miss my baby

Fool That I Am

( Etta James Cover / Live )

Fool that I am,
For falling in love with you
Fool that I am
For thinking you loved me too

You took my heart
Then played the part of little coquette
No, all my dreams just disappeared
Like the smoke from a cigarette

Fool that I am,
For hoping youd understand
And I'm thinking you won't listen to
All, all the things, the things I had planned

But we couldn't see eye to eye
So darling, darling, darling
This is goodbye
But I still care
Fool that I am
I still care
Fool that I am

*** Thanx a lot to Corqsan for this one ***

Hiding My Heart Away

( Brandi Carlile Cover  / 21 Bonus Track )

This is how the story went
I met someone by accident
That blew me away
That blew me away

And it was in the darkest of my days
When you took my sorrow, when you took my pain
And buried them away, buried them away

I wish I could lay down beside you
When the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun
But like everything I've ever known
You'll disappear one day
So I'll spend my whole life hiding my heart away

You dropped me off at the train station
Put a kiss on top of your head
Watched you wave, watched you wave
Then I went on home to my skyscrapers
Neon lights and waiting papers
That I call home
I call that home

And I wish I could lay down beside you
When the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun
But like everything I've ever known
You'll disappear one day
So I'll spend my whole life hiding my heart away

I woke up feeling heavy hearted
I'm going back to where I started
The morning rain
The morning rain

And although I wish that you were near
On that same old road that brought me here
Is calling me home
Is calling me home

I wish I could lay down beside you
When the day is done
And wake up to your face against the morning sun
But like everything I've ever known
You'll disappear one day
So I'll spend my whole life hiding my heart away
I can't spend my whole life hiding my heart away

I Found A Boy

I thought I told you
He'd be home soon
Couldn't help myself
You're too good to be true
I fall short each time
Every time he ain't here
You and your charm creep closer, closer in
Like a fool for fire I fall
With my pride and all
Like a bomb before explosion
Ticking by your call
You're the wiser one
Disguised from grief,
And I'm just a child who belongs on her knees

But I found a boy who I love more
Than I ever did you before
So stand beside the river I cried
And let yourself down
Look how you want me now that I don't need you

So, you thought that I'd crumble to my knees
At the first “I told you” calling back to me
To whisper “will you leave your man?”
'Cause you swear that this time you can stand by me
I won't stand by you

But I found a boy who I love more
Than I ever did you before
So stand beside the river I cried
And let yourself down
Look how you want me now that I don't need you

I ain't yours for no taking
You must be mistaken
I could never look in your eyes
And settle for wrong and ignore the right

Well I found a boy that loves me more
Than you ever did before
So stand beside the river you cried
And let yourself down
Look how you want me now that I don't need you

If It Hadn't Been For Love

( The Steeldrivers Cover / 21 Bonus Track )

I never would have hitchhiked to Birmingham
If it hadn't been for love
I never would have caught the train to Louisiana
If it hadn't been for love
Never would have run through the blinding rain
Without one dollar to my name
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love

I never would have seen the trouble that I'm in
If it hadn't been for love
I would have been gone like a wayward wind
If it hadn't been for love
Nobody knows it better than me
I wouldn't be wishing I was free
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love

Four cold walls against my will
At least I know he's lying still
Four cold walls without parole
Lord have mercy on my soul

Never would have gone to that side of town
If it hadn't been for love
Never would have took a mind to track him down
If it hadn't been for love
I never would have loaded up a forty four
Put myself behind a jail house door
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love

Four cold walls against my will
At least I know he's lying still
Four cold walls without parole
Lord have mercy on my soul

I never would have hitchhiked to Birmingham
If it hadn't been for love
I never would have caught the train to Louisiana
If it hadn't been for love
I never would have loaded up a forty four
And put myself behind a jail house door
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love
If it hadn't been, if it hadn't been for love

Last Nite

( The Strokes Cover / Live )

Last night she said
Oh, baby I feel so down
Oh and turned me off
When I feel left out
So I, I turned around
Oh, baby I don't care no more
I know this for sure
I'm walking out that door, yeah

Well, I've been in town
For just about fifteen whole minutes now
Oh, baby, I feel so down
And I don't know why
I keep walking for miles

But the people
They don't understand
No, girlfriends
They can't understand
Your grandsons
They won't understand
I ain't ever
Gonna understand

Last night she said
Oh, baby don't feel so down
Oh, and turned me off
When I feel left out
So I, I turned around
Oh, baby I'm gonna be alright
It was a great big lie
If I left that night, yeah

Oh, people
They don't understand
No, girlfriends
They don't understand
In spaceships
They won't understand
And me
I ain't ever gonna understand

Last night she said
Oh, baby I feel so down
She had turned me off
When I feel left out
So I, I turned around
Little girl, I don't care no more
I know this for sure
I'm walking out that door, yeah

Lovesong

(The Cure cover / Live at iTunes Festival 2011)

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

'Cause I love you, yes I do
I'll always love you

Many Shades Of Black

( The Raconteurs Feat. Adele )

Go ahead
Go ahead and smash it on the floor
Take whatever's left and take it with you out the door

See if I cry
See if I shed a single sorry tear
I can't say that it's been that great
No, in fact it's been a wasted year

Everybody sees
And everyone agrees
That you and I are wrong
And it's been that way too long
Take it as it comes
Be thankful when it's done
There's so many ways to act
And there's many shades of black
There's so many shades of black
There's so many shades of black

Yeah, everybody sees
And everyone agrees
That you and I are wrong
And it's been that way too long
Baby, take it as it comes
And be thankful when it's done
There's so many ways to act
And you cannot take it back
Oh, you cannot take it back

'Cause there's many shades of black
You have many shades of black
You have many
You have many
You have many shades of black

'Cause there's many shades of black
There's so many shades of black
There's so many shades of black
There's so many shades of black

Need You Now

( Lady Antebellum cover / feat. Darius Rucker - Live at CMT Artists of the Year Awards )

Picture perfect memories, scattered all around the floor
Reaching for the phone cause, I can't fight it anymore
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now
Said I wouldn't call, but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don't know how I can do without, I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey, can't stop looking at the door
Wishing you'd come sweeping in the way you did before
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind
For me it happens all the time

It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you now
Said I wouldn't call but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don't know how I can do without, I just need you now

Yes I'd rather hurt than feel nothing at all
It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you now
And I said I wouldn't call but I'm a little drunk and I need you now
And I don't know how I can do without, I just need you now
I just need you now
Oh baby I need you now...

Now And Then

( Cold Shoulder EP )

Sometimes the hole you left hurts my heart
So bad it cuts through the deepest parts of me
And fills up my mouth with words that I cry
How I'm still trying to stay inside

Hearts break and hearts wait
To make us grow from dust
Then our eyes cry and souls sigh
So that we know that it hurts

Our hearts break and hearts wait
To make us grow from dust
Then our eyes cry and souls sigh
So that we know that it hurts

Every now and then my memories ache
With the empty ideas of the ones we'd made
But as time goes on and my age gets older
I love the ones I know
Tey're enough to picture the rain

'Cause heart break and hearts wait
To make us grow from dust
Then our eyes cry and souls sigh
So that we know that it hurts

Our hearts break and hearts wait
To make us grow from dust
Then our eyes cry and souls sigh
So that we know that it hurts

You know when to make me
I might just your heal
You know when to make me
I might just your heal

You know when to make me
I might just your heal
You know when to make me
I might just your heal

Painting Pictures

(Japanese Bonus Track)

Painting pictures with my mind
Making memories using my eyes
Filling up my heart with golden stories
Who adds some spice to the rhythm of life

Welcome sunrise with the morning glory
I've changed my mind
There is no simple
I thought of me
I want to see
I want to feel my heartbeat so
With the world that you feel
Leave

I can feel the pressure pushing onto my heart
And it's teasing me
To scratch my itch and to beat my drum
So I can start to begin what's begun

Hey, hey
Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories

Hey, hey
Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories

Running riot inside my soul
Fire's burning and it's lighting me up
To scratch my itch and to beat my drum
So I can finish what has begun

Hey, hey
Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories

Hey, hey
Painting pictures
Filling up my heart with golden stories

*** Thanx a lot to Corqsan for this one ***

Skyfall

( Skyfall OST )

This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again

For this is the end
I've drowned and dreamed this moment
So overdue, I owe them
Swept away, I'm stolen

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Skyfall is where we start
A thousand miles and poles apart
When worlds collide, and days are dark
You may have my number, you can take my name
But you'll never have my heart
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Where you go I go
What you see I see
I know I'll never be me
Without the security
Of your loving arms
Keeping me from harm
Put your hand in my hand
And we'll stand

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together
At skyfall

Let the sky fall
We will stand tall
At skyfall

Steady As She Goes

( The Raconteurs Cover )

Find yourself a girl
And settle down
Live a simple life
In a quiet town

Steady as she goes
Steady as she goes
So steady as she goes

Your friends have shown a kink
In the single life
You've had too much to think
Now you need a wife

Steady as she goes
So steady as she goes

Well here we go again
You've found yourself a friend
That knows you well
But no matter what you do
You'll always feel as though
You tripped and fell

So steady as she goes

When you have completed
What you thought you had to do
And your blood's depleted
To the point of stable glue

Then you'll get along
Then you'll get along

Steady as she goes
So steady as she goes

But here we go again
You've found yourself a friend
That knows you well
But no matter what you do
You'll always feel as though
You tripped and fell

So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes

Settle for a girl
Neither up or down
Sell it to the crowd
That is gathered round

Settle for a girl
Neither up or down
Sell it to the crowd
That is gathered round

So steady as she goes
So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes
So steady now
Steady as she goes
So steady now
Are you steady now
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now
Steady as she goes
Are you steady now

That's It I Quit I'm Movin' On

( Chasing Pavements EP / Sam Cooke Cover )

When we used to say goodnight
I'd always kiss and hold you tight
But lately you don't seem to care
You close the door and leave me standing there
Oh, honey that's not fair
That's it, I quit, I'm moving on

The other night we had a date
And you showed up two hours late
And though your hair was all in place
Somebody smeared the lipstick on your face
Oh, they smeared it every place
Yeah, that's it, honey I quit, I'm moving on, oh

You made me want you
You made me leave you
You made me tumble and fall
But if I can't have you the way I want you
I don't want you at all

Baby, I can take a lot
'Cause I love everything you've got
Though your kisses thrill me so
If you've got someone else
I've got to go
Oh, that you know
Yeah, that's it, honey I quit, I'm moving on, oh

You made me want you
You made me leave you
You made me tumble and fall
But if I can't have you
The way I want you
I don't want you at all

Baby, I can take a lot
'Cause I love everything you've got
And though your kisses thrill me so
If you've got someone else
I've got to go
Oh, that you know
So, that's it, baby I quit, I'm moving on
Yeah, that's it, baby I quit, I'm moving on

Water and a Flame

( Daniel Merriweather & Adele )

Seven days has gone so fast
I really thought the pain would pass
It's been nearly an hour
Since I thought of you

But your not answering the phone
I'd settle for a busy tone
At least that I'd know that you're okay
A girl like you ain't meant to go away
Oh...

Now you're gone
There's nothing else I want
Now that it's over
There's nothing else I want
What have I done
Looks like I was wrong
Is everything really meant to change
I guess we're like water and a flame
Water and a flame

Adele:
I'm tired of this empty house
I need a drink to get me out
A couple more til I forget your name

I saw a boy that looked like you
I didn't know quite what to do
It took a power of will to break my stare
I realized what I wanted wasn't there

Now you're gone
There's nothing else I want
Now that it's over
There's nothing else I want

Is everything really meant to change
I guess we're like water and a flame
Water and a flame

Daniel:
If you see me coming

Adele:
I look away, I look away

Daniel:
And if your mind is made up

Adele:
I look away, I will look away

Daniel:
If your worry bound

Adele:
I'm okay, I'm okay, yes I am

Daniel:
All this sorrow and this pain
Is going to go away

Daniel & Adele:
Now you're gone
There's nothing else I want
Now that it's over
There's nothing else I want
What have I done
Looks like I was wrong.
Is everything really meant to change
I guess we're like water and a flame
Water and a flame
