Lianne La Havas arrived in the early 2010s with a mostly acoustic and hushed hybrid of alternative folk and soul. The singer, songwriter, and guitarist was born and raised in London, England, the daughter of a Jamaican mother and Greek father. She was a member of the Paris Parade with Christian Pinchbeck (a future member of Elephant), but the act proved to be short-lived. La Havas eventually shifted to solo work and released Lost & Found, a four-track EP featuring a duet with Willy Mason, in October 2011. Two months later -- the same month she opened for Bon Iver during a North American tour -- it was announced that she had been nominated for the BBC's Sound of 2012 poll. Is Your Love Big Enough?, La Havas' debut album for Warner Bros., was released in the U.K. in July 2012 and reached number five; the U.S. release through Nonesuch followed a month later. The set was produced almost entirely by songwriting partner Matt Hales (aka Aqualung). One major fan was Prince, who had La Havas contribute to his 2014 album Art Official Age. Around the same time, she also appeared on recordings by Alt-J and Tourist. Her second album, the bolder and more produced Blood, followed in 2015. Informed by a trip to Jamaica but additionally inspired by her Greek heritage, the set was preceded by the tracks "Unstoppable" and "What You Won't Do" and was issued that July.

Is Your Love Big Enough

Don't Wake Me Up

Don't wake me up
Trying to find you
Oh, as I walk through
You're hiding in the corners of my mind
Never fear, I'll be close behind
My only love, I follow behind you
Won't go without you
copy paste is killing the internet
I know your love weighs heavy on my heart
But you are my only counterpart
Well I know
Why I lost control
Of my heart and soul
'Cause I know you,
I can reach through, all alone

I make mistakes but they're safely behind me
Now I can run free
The only true love I have ever known
Into yours my life has been thrown
Still, I only think so
It's just the beginning
Sing when you're willing

They say somethings are better left unsaid
But I'd take my life to stay in your bed

Well I know,
Why I lost control
Of my heart and soul
'Cause I know you
I can reach through

Is Your Love Big Enough

Found myself in a second
I found myself in a secondhand guitar
Never thought it would happen
But I found myself in a secondhand guitar
copy paste is killing the internet
So I've just got to know
I truly have to know
So you've got to let me know

Is your love big enough for what's to come

Got so hot in the city
That I forgot everything I was looking for
Made my way to the dance floor
And I danced 'til I wasn't drunk anymore

So I've just got to know
I truly have to know
So you've got to let me know

Is your love big enough for what's to come
Baby, let me know
Is your love big enough for past is done
Baby, let me know

Underground, underground
With the friends I've found
Friends I've found

Underground, underground
With the friends I've found
Friends I've found

I scream, I scream on Second Avenue
I scream on Second Avenue

Is your love big enough for what's to come
Baby, let me know
Is your love big enough for past is done
Won't you let me know

Is your love big enough for what's to come
Is your love big enough, big enough
Is your love big enough for what's to come
Won't you let me know

Is your love big enough for past is done
Baby, let me know
Is your love big enough for what's to come
Is your love big enough for what's to come

Lost & Found

Come upstairs and i'll show you where all my
Where my demons hide from you
Just look at who I have become I am so ashamed
You were the one that made me feel the way I do

You broke me and taught me
To truly hate myself
Unfold me and teach me how to be
Like somebody else
copy paste is killing the internet
And I felt strong enough
I was discovered by the love
I had been waiting for so long
You told me none of that was real
I can not hide how low I feel
To know that you were never wrong

You broke me and taught me
To truly hate myself
Unfold me and teach me
How to be like somebody else

You are lost and found
Falling out my babe
Broken down
Broken down

You broke me and taught me
to truly hate myself
Unfold me and teach me
How to be like somebody else

You broke me and taught me to
Truly hate myself
Unfold me and teach me
How to be like somebody else

Au Cinema

Sometimes when you're Zorg
And I'm your Betty Blue
And we're singing it close
Like, the girls in Belleville Rendezvous
copy paste is killing the internet
I wish
That we
Could somehow freeze the frame
But this isn't the silver screen, no

There's no pause
No rewind

Time to find out how the story goes
Sat hip to hip with the curtains close
Watching ourselves au cinema

Take our positions as the cameras roll
You'll be the guy I'll be the girl
Watching ourselves au cinema
Au cinema

Now we'll cut to the girl, alone
She's found on the Brooklyn
And she's truly at home, home
Her step has only sprang
The big bright lights of the city are shining for her
There's a thirst in her eyes in her eyes and her heart
Oh she thinks to look back
Back, she won't

There's no pause
No rewind
No pause
No rewind

Time to find out how the story goes
Sat hip to hip with the curtains close
Watching ourselves au cinema

Take our positions as the cameras roll
You'll be the guy I'll be the girl
Watching ourselves au cinema
Au cinema

Time to find out how the story goes
Sat hip to hip with the curtains close
Watching ourselves au cinema

Take our positions as the cameras roll
You'll be the guy I'll be the girl
Watching ourselves au cinema
Au cinema

Where the story goes,
As the curtains close

No Room For Doubt

(featuring Willy Mason)

You caught me, guilty
Taking the pieces of you
That night, you took flight
I couldn't decide what to do

I won't let a safe bet
Continue to make me feel blue
I could go solo
Would that be the right thing to do
copy paste is killing the internet
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you

I tiptoe, too slow
Out of the door to your house
I know you know
That this was leads me out

Outside, too bright
You're within I'm without
You're within

We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you

Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt

Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Leave me no room for doubt

We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you

We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you, oh

Please sleep softly
Leave me no
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt

Please sleep softly
Leave me no
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt

Forget

Waste all your time writing love songs
But you don't love me
All too familiar when it feels wrong
I think you're just lonely
copy paste is killing the internet
Do you mind
I found another new way to look at
Use your time to pack away
Your every verse and every rhyme

Forget all the words
That let you break my heart
Forget that I'm the person
Tearing you apart

Remember way back when you played me
Even I lost that hand
So please don't try to serenade me
I am a one man band

Say goodbye
Don't need to hear you play
So many other ways to lie
So pack away your every verse and every rhyme

Forget all the words
That let you break my heart
Forget that I'm the person
Tearing you apart

Forget all the words
That let you break my heart
Forget that I'm the person
Tearing you apart

I think it's time for me to leave
But I gave my piece of mind for free
So if you hear my sound advice
There is no need to tell you twice
There is no need to tell you twice

Forget all the words
That let you break my heart
Forget that I'm the person
Tearing you apart

Forget all the words
That let you break my heart
Forget that I'm the person
Tearing you apart

So if you hear my sound advice
There is no need to tell you twice
So if you hear my sound advice
There is no need to tell you twice

Age

Why do I love him, he don't love back
When I call his name, he turns his back
The weather is growing cold
And I want him back again
copy paste is killing the internet
I kinda know this other guy but he's rather
Old enough to be my father
So he's not the one for me
'Cause I fancy younger men
I'm at a loss
Not a coincidence he left me because
My older man
Was ready to love me like the woman that I am
Ooh

So is it such a problem if he's old
As long as he does whatever he's told
I'm glad that it's just my heart that he stole
And left my dignity alone

When in Rome we landed our first kiss
I slurred my words but he pretended not to notice
And then he sat down to play
My heart sang a symphony
So far, so swimmingly
I'm glad I got up to find my fish in that sea
We've come so far
So who gives a damn about the ages we are
Ooh

So is it such a problem if he's old
As long as he does whatever he is told
I'm glad that it's just my heart that he stole
And left my dignity alone

So is it such a problem that he's old
As long as he does whatever he is told
I know I'm gonna survive the December cold

With somebody to retrieve my long lost soul
With somebody to retrieve my long lost soul

Elusive

He's a gambler, spinning wheels
A poison victim, look of steel
The coldest heart you've ever felt
The coldest hands you've ever held
Take him down, all his way
A million miles, still no headway
Has his love truly blown
In his mind I'm proud to roam
copy paste is killing the internet
He's elusive and I'm awake
Defiantly real, there's nothing fake
A mystery now to me and you
Open my eyes and I'm next to you
He says my destiny
Lies in the hands that set me free

A reckless night, he hears me breathe
Cursing the skies of this company
You've lost the wisdom deep inside
His bitterness shows it's side
If it's true I'll doom
What more is there to hold onto
Strength of head is all I own
If to me this sorry's whole

He's elusive and I'm awake
Defiantly real, there's nothing fake
A mystery now to me and you
Open my eyes and I'm next to you
He says my destiny
Lies in the hands that set me free

(That set me free)

He's elusive and I'm awake
Defiantly real, there's nothing fake
A mystery now to me and you
Open my eyes and I'm next to you
He says my destiny
Lies in the hands that set me, that set me free

Oh, mystery now to me and you
Open my eyes and I'm next to you
He says my destiny
Lies in the hands that set me
Lies in the hands that set me free

Everything Everything

I can use my head again
I always suffered then
My heart is stolen, let it show
But I'll run forever more
You know there's not a soul alive
Who understands you like I do
It's okay my love, no need to explain
copy paste is killing the internet
There's nothing to say
Your eyes said it all, all, all (all, all, all)
I'm not looking away
Your eyes hold everything, everything

We should learn to breathe again
Before we suffocate
All this talk but even then
We ex-communicate
I've never known another love
Who looks at me the way you do
And sees the light,
The dark,
The truth
And my real name
You know there's not a soul alive
Could understand you like I do
Its okay my love, no need to explain, oh
copy paste is killing the internet
There's nothing to say
Your eyes said it all, all, all (all, all, all)
I'm not looking away
Your eyes hold everything, everything

There's nothing to say
Your eyes said it all, all, all (all, all, all)
I'm not looking away
Your eyes hold everything, everything

They told everything, everything, oh

(Can use, can use my head again)

Gone

When I waited for you there was no show
Made myself believe the untrue, how could I not know
But it seemed easier, just to lie
But I found you out, this is my last goodbye
copy paste is killing the internet
I heard enough fairy tales back in my youth
So just stop biting your nails and take the painful truth
You just look ridiculous in your disguise
Well I found you out, this is my last goodbye

'Cause it used to be my life and soul
Keeping everything in tune
What the heck man
Last time I checked man
We had it all, it was just me and you
So what happened to you
Thought I knew you
No more chances
I'm gone, gone, gone

Love is not blind, it's just deaf and it is dumb
So how could I fool myself thinking you were the one
How sad, how undignified
Now I found you out, this is my last goodbye

'Cause it used to be my life and soul
Keeping everything in tune
What the heck man
Last time I checked man
We had it all, it was just me and you
So what happened to you
Thought I knew you
No more chances
I'm gone, gone, gone
Don't wait for me
I'll be gone

'Cause when I waited for you there was no show
Made myself believe the untrue, how could I not know

'Cause it used to be my life and soul
Keeping everything in tune
What the heck man
Last time I checked man
We had it all, it was just me and you
So what happened to you
Thought I knew you
No more chances
I'm gone and gone and gone and gone

'Cause it used to be my life and soul
Keeping everything in tune
What the heck man
Last time I checked man
We had it all, it was just me and you
So what happened to you
I thought I knew you
No more chances
I'm gone, gone,
I'm gone, gone, gone

Tease Me

A dream never stops
But I see the end before I wake up
Ooh, a dream never wins, no
So I pray for yesterday
And I haven't slept a wink since

I never know what I want, what I need
So I think its best you stay away from me
copy paste is killing the internet
'Cause I hate the way you tease me
I am not lonely, I'm alright
But you sure don't make it easy
To show my hand and say, "goodnight"

Try anything
But it's me who takes the blame
If I sing, ooh
Will I try again
No, I've received my faithful end
How did I let this shit happen

I never know what I want, what I need
So I think its best you stay away from me

'Cause I hate the way you tease me
I am not lonely, I'm alright
But you sure don't make it easy
To show my hand and say, "goodnight"

Will I try again
No

I hate the way you tease me
I am not lonely, I'm alright
But you sure don't make it easy
To show my hand and say, "goodbye"

I never let my guard down
So why did I let it slide for you
I know it so wrong, but somehow
There's nothin' I could say, or do, or do

They Could Be Wrong

The way you look when you're sleeping
The way you breathe when you're leaving
I know you know then I'm not myself
copy paste is killing the internet
Mm, and when you're home feel your footsteps
I count alone in the darkness
In the darkness

They say our love won't last forever
They could be wrong
And when they say our love won't last forever
They could be wrong
They could be wrong

The way you smile when I'm speaking
I feel how clearly you see me
How clearly you see me

They say our love won't last forever
They could be wrong
And when they say our love won't last forever
They could be wrong
They could be wrong
They could be wrong
They could be wrong

Oh, we could be wrong

Hear me out
Just hear me out
Oh hear me out
Just hear me out
Oh hear me out
Just hear me out
Oh hear me out
Just hear me out
(They say our love won't last forever)
Hear me now
Just hear me now
Oh hear me now
Don't push me out
(They say our love won't last forever)
Oh hear me now
Don't push me out
Oh hear me now
They say our love

Oh, they could be wrong
Yeah, they could be wrong

We proved ourselves wrong

They say our love won't last forever
They say our love won't last forever



Blood

Unstoppable

I'll wait a little longer
We're weak and getting stronger
I know it's taking the time to heal
We'll be unstoppable
Don't know what I did it for
I needed to know that it was always real
copy paste is killing the internet
My head's held high when we walk down the line, honey
Arm-in-arm through the clear night sky
Let's be at peace, we'll fly
Our hearts collide
Can't escape the magnetic side

I was like a satellite spinning away
Almost lost forever and leaving no trace
Floating through the darkest reaches of space
To another galaxy
Our polarity shifted around
There is nothing else left holding us down
But it's just gravitational
We are unstoppable
I just can't escape the pull
We are unstoppable
It's just gravitational
We are unstoppable

Our head's held high when we walk down the line, honey
Arm-in-arm through the clear night sky
Let's be at peace, we'll fly
Our hearts collide
Can't escape the magnetic side

I was like a satellite spinning away
Almost lost forever and leaving no trace
Floating through the darkest reaches of space
To another galaxy
Our polarity shifted around
There is nothing else left holding us down
But it's just gravitational
We are unstoppable
I just can't escape the pull
We are unstoppable
It's just gravitational
We are unstoppable
The stars will guide the way
In the dead of space
You will be my one and only

We are unstoppable
Oh, oh, oh!

The stars will guide the way
In the dead of space
You will be my one and only

Green & Gold

Six years old
Staring at my nose in the mirror
Trying to dip my toes in the mirror
Thinking 'Who's that girl?'
And 'Does the mirror world go on forever'
Calmly you roll
Sharpening the knives in the attic
Trying to watch cartoons through the static
Thinking where am I gonna be
If I'm ever twenty-three
copy paste is killing the internet
I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Found an old friend
Meeting my guitar in the city
Feeling like a star in the city
And suddenly it seems
That I'm where I'm supposed to be, oh
And now I'm fully grown
And I'm seeing everything clearer
Just sweep away the dust from the mirror
We're walking hand in hand
On the warm white sands

I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

Ancient stone
Oh, green and gold
Ancient stone
Oh, green and gold
Ancient stone
Oh, green and gold
Ancient stone
Green and gold

I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

I'm looking at a life unfold
Dreaming of the green and gold
Just like the ancient stone
Every sunrise I know
Those eyes you gave to me
That let me see
Where I come from

What You Don't Do

Heavy words, little lies
Telling everything but the truth, the truth
Three little words over time overheard and overused, used
No sweet nothing could ever be turned into something new
No grand gesture could ever be made to measure you
copy paste is killing the internet
I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof

I've been saving up my time so I could spend it all on you, on you
Oh, all I need is to see you smile; I've forgotten how to be blue, blue

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
Don't tell the whole world; just wanna be your girl
(It's what you don't do, it's what you don't do)

The closer we get, oh
The less we need to show

I know what I got and I know where we're going
You don't need to show it, I already know it all
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, the games you don't play
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
Won't tell the whole world; just wanna be your girl
(It's what you don't do) I know you love me, I don't need proof
It's what you don't do, it's what you don't say
(It's what you don't do, it's what you don't do)

Oh, the closer we get, oh
The less we need to show

Tokyo

I am neon
Cold neon
Not a mystery
copy paste is killing the internet
All I've every known is
How to be alone
It comes naturally

Oh baby, can I hold you?
Such a cold, cold night
I thought I wouldn't need to
I've got my neon lights
I'm longing just to feel you
To know that it's alright
Oh baby baby baby baby

I'm out of sight
I'm out of mind
Alone in Tokyo

You're out of reach
Wrong place, wrong time
Alone in Tokyo

Here I go again
To and fro again
Overnight delivery

Grew a thicker skin
Now it's growing thin
You can see right into me

Oh baby, can I hold you
Such a cold, cold night
I thought I wouldn't need to
I've got my neon lights
I'm longing just to feel you
To know that it's alright
Oh baby baby baby baby

I'm out of sight
I'm out of mind
Alone in Tokyo

You're out of reach
Wrong place, wrong time
Alone in Tokyo

I'm out of sight
Going out of my mind
Alone in Tokyo

You're out of reach
Wrong place, wrong time
Alone in Tokyo

Oh, in Tokyo

Wonderful

Did the world get a little bit colder
Not wiser just a little bit older
So slow that we're bound to fall over, oh

Did the heart grow a little bit harder
Too much, too late, too far, too gone

But wasn't it kind of wonderful
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, baby
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, baby
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, wonderful
copy paste is killing the internet
You can trip, flick a switch like a thief
Break the circuit between us
But electricity lingers
In our fingers

Oh you can burn every fuse and refuse
Turn your positive minus
Electricity lingers
In our fingers

From here there's nothing but horizon
Near dawn, I'm searching for the sunrise
Remember when you put the stars into my eyes, oh

Wasn't it kind of wonderful
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, baby
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, wonderful

You can trip, flick a switch like a thief
Break the circuit between us
But electricity lingers
In our fingers

Oh you can burn every fuse and refuse
Turn your positive minus
Electricity lingers
In our fingers

Wasn't it kind of wonderful
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, baby
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, wonderful

Wasn't it kind of wonderful
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, baby
Wasn't it kind of wonderful, wonderful

Midnight

A long and lonely journey
To my hideaway
And I know they'll try to turn me
With the things that they say
But no one knows where I'll go
When I walk away
So come now, hurry hurry
Don't miss this train
copy paste is killing the internet
Open up and let me get to you
Take you to another side
Come to my world (after midnight)
We're getting lost in another time
Your hand in mine
In my own world
On my own time
Maybe that's why

(I don't mind)
People think I'm crazy
Lately I'm
(I'll be fine)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
(Oh oh oh)
And if you think I'm crazy
Pay it no mind
(Oh oh oh)
We're living in midnight
Just living in midnight

If you could see what I've seen
You would dare to dream
Honey, if you care to join me
Come meet the team

And you all could be my army
There's no other way
So come now, hurry hurry
Don't miss this train

(I don't mind)
People think I'm crazy
Lately I'm
(I'll be fine)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
(Oh oh oh)
And if you think I'm crazy
Pay it no mind
(Oh oh oh)
You'll never know
The places I go
When I'm alone

If only for a moment
Only for a while
'Cause I belong to the unknown
Hope to be alright

(I don't mind)
People think I'm crazy
Lately I'm
(I'll be fine)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
And if you think I'm crazy
Pay it no mind
You'll never know
The places I go

(I don't mind)
People think I'm crazy
Lately I'm
(I'll be fine)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
And if you think I'm crazy
Pay it no mind
You'll never know
The places I go
When I'm alone

Grow

I resisted the charms of evil's arms
As she stood by my bedside speaking in tongues
And the lovers who cried won't be denied
As they fight for their right to grow, to grow

Please don't turn us down
Don't turn us down
Turn, turn
copy paste is killing the internet
Turn up the love
Turn up and watch it sing
As we grow
The future we don't know, know
Unless we're together, together

Turn up the love
Turn up and watch it sing
As we grow
The future we don't know, know
Unless we do it together

I requested to know what I did wrong
'Cause I sure didn't mean to string you along
But the blood in my body and my heart beat it said
'It's to feel a crime, a crime!'

Please don't turn us down
Won't be turned down
Turn, turn

Turn up the love
Turn up and watch it sing
As we grow
The future we don't know, know
Unless we're together, together

Turn up the love
Turn up and watch it sing
As we grow
The future we don't know, know
Unless we're together, together

Turn up for this love
Got nothing to hide if you get this feeling
Turn up for this love
Take a piece of the sky if you understand
Turn up for this love
Everybody can see that you're getting that feeling
Turn up for this love
Turn turn turn turn!

Turn up the love
Turn up and watch it sing
As we grow
The future we don't know, know
Unless we're together, together

Turn up the love
Turn up and watch it sing
As we grow
The future we don't know, know
Unless we're together, together

Ghost

Whenever I called you
I couldn't say
It was only yesterday
And yesterday's so far away
What's the ETA
copy paste is killing the internet
Don't tell me you need me
I am estranged
And I'm over-aged
The trouble it may be
There's still a part of me
That has to know
What you have to say

On and on we go
Always with the ghosts of us in tow
Stuck somewhere between a friend and foe
Round and round we go

Oh, round and round again
Looking for a life beyond the end
Lost somewhere between a foe and friend
Round and round again

I should have told you
Yes, I'm to blame
Oh, I took the blame
Turned it into this serenade
Oh, the mess I've made

And I should have warned you
What was in store
But I was so so sure
I wasn't haunted anymore
Not forevermore

On and on we go
Always with the ghosts of us in tow
Stuck somewhere between a friend and foe
Round and round we go

Oh, round and round again
Looking for a life beyond the end
Lost somewhere between a foe and friend
Round and round again

On and on we go
Always with the ghosts of us in tow
Stuck somewhere between a friend and foe
Round and round we go

Oh, round and round again
Looking for a life beyond the end
Lost somewhere between a foe and friend
Round and round again

Never Get Enough

I heard a song today
On the tip of your tongue
And when I hear you play
That particular song
I go, and you stay
copy paste is killing the internet
As I lay wide awake
Thinking 'what the hell have I done'
Enchanted by the way you dance
At the kick of my drum
I'll go, and you stay
There must be another way

No I'll never get enough of you
But your love like stop it's amazing
Doesn't matter what you've been through, through
'Cause I'll never get enough of you
But your love like stop it's amazing
Doesn't matter what you've been through, through

Gave you the runaround
Baby, what the hell do I do
Bewildered by the sound
Only if it's coming from you
Okay, you paid

I've been unsatisfied
Lately when I think about us
I've swallowed so much pride
To win a little bit of your trust
You go, and I'll stay
There must be a better way

No I'll never get enough of you
But your love like stop it's amazing
Doesn't matter what you've been through, through
'Cause I'll never get enough of you
But your love like stop it's amazing
Doesn't matter what you've been through, through

And the way you got me
The way you got me up
I can't see down
It's real now, it's real now
I can't see now

'Cause I'll never get enough of you
But your love like stop it's amazing
Doesn't matter what you've been through, through
No I'll never get enough of you
But your love like stop it's amazing
Doesn't matter what you've been through, through

Good Goodbye

Old man, let me wipe your eyes
I've never seen you cry

Old friend, in our own sweet time
We'll say a good goodbye
All my life I know by now

All these memories, too much to lose
No one ever leaves you
I don't need faith, I don't need truth
No one ever leaves you
copy paste is killing the internet
You'd say this is all there is
And every time you'd blink
You'd miss another piece of this wondrous world
All I'd ask is why you'd leave so soon
Everybody seems to
I don't need faith I just want you
No one ever leaves you

Everybody raise a glass here's to a good goodbye
Everybody raise a glass here's to a good goodbye
Everybody raise a glass here's to a good goodbye
Oh, everybody raise a glass, oh

All these memories too much to lose
No one ever leaves you
I don't need faith I don't need truth
No one ever leaves you
I don't need faith I just want proof

Arms Of Danger

(Is Your Love Big Enough Deluxe Ed. / Solo in Paris)

Love, heal my Mind
It's bruised and I have swallowed all my pride
Love, release my mind
It's peace that I can't find
copy paste is killing the internet
Forgot my soul
Three years ago
Was barely just sixteen I
I walk alone, from the nest I've flown
Into the arms of danger

And it's swallowed me whole
And it's kidnapped my self-control
Leaving me with nothing but a heart that's on its own

Try your hardest just to comprehend
That I'm not just that bitch who stole your ex-boyfriend
Please, I knew not what to do
But I know that he loved you

I get so tired trying to exorcise
The demons I have raised
Although the truth is known
Now we walk alone
Into the arms of danger

It's digested us whole
So we've got no more self-control
Leaving me with nothing but a heart that's on it's own
She will never be cloned
I'm just a lonely soldier

And it swallowed me whole
And it's kidnapped my self-control
Leaving me with nothing but a heart that's on its own

She will never be cloned
I am just a lonely soldier
Leaving me with nothing but a heart that's on its own

Baltimore

(Randy Newman / 'Round Nina LP)

Beat-up little seagull
On a marble stair
Tryin' to find the ocean
Lookin' everywhere
copy paste is killing the internet
Hard times in the city
In a hard town by the sea
Ain't nowhere to run to
There ain't nothin' here for free

Hooker on the corner
Waitin' for a train
Drunk, lyin' on the sidewalk
Sleepin' in the rain

And they hide their faces
And they hide their eyes
Cause the city is dyin'
And they don't know why

Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live
Just to live

Get my sister, Sandy
And my little brother, Ray
Buy a big old wagon
Gonna haul us all away

Livin' in the country
Where the mountain's high
Never comin' back here
Until the day I die

Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live
Just to live

Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard just to live
Just to live

Oh, Baltimore
Man, it's hard
Man, it's hard
Just to live
Just to live
Just to live

Just to live

Breathe

(Rudimental Feat. Lianne La Havas)

People say what they say
I don't wanna fuss or fight with you
I am not a machine
If you wanna find perfection

Let me breathe, oh yeah
Let me breathe
If you wanna find perfection, if you wanna find perfection
If you wanna find perfection, if you wanna find perfection
Let's do it for our people, if you wanna find perfection
Let's do it for our people, if you wanna find perfection
copy paste is killing the internet
Give me time, give me space
Slow and steady wins the race
Do your thing, let me be
If you wanna find perfection

Let me breathe
Let me breathe
If you wanna find perfection, if you wanna find perfection
If you wanna find perfection, if you wanna find perfection
Let's do it for our people, if you wanna find perfection
Let's do it for our people, if you wanna find perfection

So, let me breathe

Let's do it for our people, if you wanna find perfection
Let's do it for our people, if you wanna find perfection

Eggshells

(Aqualung feat. Lianne La Havas)

Big black crows
They're back here again
They pick at the ground, the ground, the ground
In the dead back yard
copy paste is killing the internet
Big black crows
With tiny black eyes
How we gonna make you stay away, stay away, stay away this time
Again a copy paste, i'm tired of robot
Underneath the eggshells, eggshells
Underneath the eggshells, eggshells
Guess what I, guess what I found
Guess what I found
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground

Big black clouds
Are back here again
Just hanging around, and around, and around
Til I can't see your face no more

Underneath the eggshells, eggshells
Underneath the eggshells, eggshells
Guess what I, guess what I found
Underneath the eggshells
Underneath the eggshells, eggshells
Guess what I, guess what I found
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground

Underneath the eggshells, eggshells
Underneath the eggshells, eggshells
Guess, guess what I found

Empty

(Is Your Love Big Enough Deluxe Ed. / Solo in Paris)

I knew you were empty
I knew you were lost, yet still
I'm alone
But oh how I've grown

Thought that he'd left me
I thought that he'd burned out bright
And I'm alone
But somehow I'm alright

It seemed so easy
Just to walk, just to run
But if you leave me
I can re-aquaint myself, with my true loved one

Just leave town
I can sleep when you're not around
Thought it was myself that I'd found

I knew you were empty
I knew you were lost, yet still
I'm alone
But oh how I've grown

Thought that he'd left me
I thought that he'd burned out bright
And I'm alone
But somehow I'm alright
copy paste is killing the internet
It seemed so easy
Just to walk, just to run
But if you leave me
I can re-aquaint myself, with my true loved one

Just leave town
I can sleep when you're not around
Thought it was myself that I'd found

I said just leave town
I can sleep when you're not around
I gotta take another call right now

Fairytale

(Blood Solo EP)

And in the nighttime, she's beautiful
She's got her mother's nose
But she won't remember a thing at all
Cause in your arms, she's home

Here comes the rain again, so strong
Oh, you'll get by until it's gone
She'll never realize what's wrong
He can't survive it all
The wind, the rain
The storm and and the tidal wave
Oh, she's brave, a soul to save
It's plain to see I don't believe in fairytales
Into the wind she sails
But justice always prevails
copy paste is killing the internet
Oh, baby, sleep until we reach much calmer seas
I'll take you away with me
And save you from this disease

Stunned by the greatness, he's miles away
I wonder how you'll cope
But we're here to witness her eyes degrade
Her south London smile sees hope

Here comes the rain again, so strong
Oh, you'll get by until it's gone
She'll never realize what's wrong
You kept her eyes to the sun
You found the remedy to move on
And you can smile again
It's unconditional, that love
It's plain to see I don't believe in fairytales
Into the wind, she sails
But justice always prevails

Oh, baby, sleep until we reach much calmer seas
I'll take you away with me
To save you from this disease
It's clear to me that no one holds monopoly
She'll set your beauty free
And grant you your dignity
So baby, sleep, until we reach much calmer seas
I'll take you away with me
To save you from this disease

And in the nighttime, she's beautiful
I'm sure her mother knows

Final Form

(Lost & Found EP / Everything everything Cover)

What is that incessant humming
Coming from your manga maw
Oh, you breathe twin towers, oh
You gave your powers up

And I can't teach you how to stop it
And you can't make me understand
Break, the withered habit
Oh, I need your rabid smile

Your home
Your head
Take form
First body, last body
copy paste is killing the internet
I wish the summer was over us in bursts
We're in the middle of nothing we can hold
And the sewers erupting life in gold
I'm gonna happen and happen until my whole give up the ghost

So lean me up and take a picture
I can't move my legs and arms
Too much information, too
Much to be thinking of

Your home
Your head
Take form
First body
Last body, last body

I wish the cesspit would open like a bible
I wish the rotten would blossom with the tidal
And I've never been able to divide us
I'm gonna wrestle and wrangle until my legs become unreal

Yet while I slumber, rest, move so slowly
It's creeping across his chest, like some cold weed
He's not as afraid as me, like some dancer

I wish the cesspit would open like a bible
I wish the rotten would blossom with the tidal
And I've never been able to divide us
I'm gonna wrestle and wrangle until my legs become unreal
I'm gonna stumble and scramble my way to lactic ecstasy

Friends Like Evergreens

(Georges Brassens "Au Bois De Mon Coeur" English translated Cover)

In the forest, flowers may grow unseen
Flowers may grow unseen
Friends grow in my heart
Like evergreens
Friends like evergreens

But 'round these parts, I've got the name
Around these parts, I've got the name
I've got the name
My friends are people of ill-fame
Are people of ill-fame

In the pine woods, flowers may grow unseen
Flowers may grow unseen
Friends grow in my heart
Like evergreens
Friends like evergreens
copy paste is killing the internet
If by some chance, there's no more wine
If by some chance, there's no more wine
There's no more wine
They'll tell me water suits them fine
Yes, water suits them fine

In the firm woods, flowers may grow unseen
Flowers may grow unseen
Friends grow in my heart
Like evergreens
Friends like evergreens

If by some chance, there's no more wine
If by some chance, there's no more wine
There's no more wine
They'll tell me water suits them fine
Yes, water suits them fine

In the black woods, flowers may grow unseen
Flowers may grow unseen
Friends grow in my heart
Like evergreens
Friends like evergreens

He Loves Me

(Jill H. Scott Cover / Is Your Love Big Enough Deluxe Ed. / Solo in Paris)

You love me especially different every time
You keep me on my feet happily excited
By your cologne, and your hands, your smile, your intelligence
You woo me, you court me, you tease me, you please me
You school me, give me some things to think about
Ignite me, co-write me, you love me, you like me, invite me
Incite me to a chorus
copy paste is killing the internet
You love me especially different every time
You keep me on my feet happily excited
By your cologne, and your hands, your smile, your intelligence
You woo me, you court me, you tease me, you please me
You school me, give me some things to think about
Ignite me, co-write me, you love me, you like me, invite me
Incite me to a chorus

Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye

(Is Your Love Big Enough Deluxe Ed. / Solo in Paris)

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
Yes, many loved before us, I know that we are not new
In city and in forest they smiled like me and you
But now it's come to distances and both of us must try
Your eyes are soft with sorrow
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye
copy paste is killing the internet
I'm not looking for another as I wander in my time
Walk me to the corner, our steps will always rhyme
You know my love goes with you and your love stays with me
It's just the way it changes, like the shorelines and the sea
But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie
Your eyes are soft with sorrow
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye

I loved you in the morning, our kisses deep and warm
Your hair upon the pillow like a sleepy golden storm
Yes many loved before us, I know that we are not new
In city and in forest they smiled like me and you
But let's not talk of love or chains and things we can't untie
Your eyes are soft with sorrow
Hey, that's no way to say goodbye
Goodbye...
 

Little Talks

(Of Monsters and Men Cover)

Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey!
Hey! Hey! Hey!

I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore
copy paste is killing the internet
Hey! Hey! Hey!
There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
I tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will all be over, buried with our past
You used to play outside when you were young
Full of life and full of love

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say
The streets of Solomon sang

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Go go go away
I wish you'd disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you

Now we're torn torn torn apart
There's nothing we can do
Just let me go, me against you

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Needn't Speak

(Rudimental Feat. Lianne La Havas)

I broke you down but your heart was sore
It's gonna take much more to get it off the floor
We needn't speak, look how hard we've cried
Had to beat our pride to get you off my mind

Baby don't you worry, I don't know where to start
Should I listen to the voices in my brain or my heart?
I must find a way to say that when all is said and done
I just hope you're happy this way
I just can't let go, go
I just can't let go, go
copy paste is killing the internet
You let me go to a place unknown
From the depths I've flown, so I was free to roam
Now you can see why I had to leave
You were leaving me, I had to find my feet

Baby don't you worry, I don't know where to start
Should I listen to the voices in my brain or my heart?
I must find a way to say that when all is said and done
I just hope you're happy this way
I just can't let go, go
I just can't let go, go
I just can't let go, go
I just can't let go, go

Night School

(Lost & Found EP)

So far, solo
He took a light
Twisted my arms, I couldn't learn to fight
The last known pupil with the teacher of the night

Gave him my soul, familiar price
He knew I'd follow
But I'm the fool too blind to realize
That I'd been silenced by the teacher of the night
I had to take his life
My soul shown too bright
She did what she thought to be right
copy paste is killing the internet
He took my voice, had nothing left
Gave me no choice I'd have to cheat to pass his unfair test
Before I knew it I'd been taught to fear the light
So I had to take his life
My soul shown too bright
She did what she thought to be right

Before the daylight came
I drowned his heart in shame
I broke his arms and legs
Now he;s as good as dead
But oh how he still begs

To trade my soul for light
If I bring him back to life
But I should've known he'd lie

Patterns

(Tourist Feat. Lianne La Havas)

In good time, shapes will form
Color shine and lines are drawn
In good time, we'll be cast in gold
Soaked in light as plans unfold
As plans unfold In our lives (In our lives)
There'll be ups-and-downs (ups-and-downs)
That will be lost (will be lost)
On silent crowds (silent crowds)
At this time (at this time)
We will have to breathe (have to breath)
Once unfold, the spiral lead
copy paste is killing the internet
I can see what's happening
The patterns are in front of me
Can you see what's happening
The patterns could be our only lead
I can see what's happening
The patterns are in front of me
Can you see what's happening
The patterns could be our only lead
They're all in front of me
Can you see what I see
The patterns are in front of me
Can you see what I see
The patterns could be our only lead
I can see what's happening
The patterns are in front of me
Can you see what's happening?
The patterns could be our only lead

Same as Me

(Forget EP)

Hear this song
It's made for you
Long over due
So here goes
Home truths that I have to disclose

Remove the mask you hide
Your handsome face
Behind take heat
It's advice you might need
copy paste is killing the internet
I know what truth you're hiding underneath
You are just the same as me

Take off your coat of fears
You'll find no use for your coat here
Wipe away what wets your brow
It's over now lay low

I know what truth you're hiding underneath
You are just the same as me

You are just the same as me
You are just the same as me
You are just the same as me
