 (by Scott Kerr)

English trio London Grammar combine sparse electronic pop in the model of the xx with lead singer Hannah Reid's dramatic, soulful vocals evoking Annie Lennox and contemporaries like Florence Welch and Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes. After reaching number two on the album chart in the U.K. with their debut, 2013's If You Wait, they topped the chart again with 2017's Truth Is a Beautiful Thing. In 2021, they issued their third album Californian Soil.

Reid and guitarist Dan Rothman met in the dorms of Nottingham University, where they began writing music together in 2009, later adding multi-instrumentalist Dot Major to complete the lineup. The following years saw them refine their sound with atmospheric electronics and subtle percussion, and they often played to rooms of no more than ten people. Their popularity rose with the 2012 release of "Hey Now," which they uploaded online, instantly gaining a digital cult following. Their fans were not just in the U.K., but also on the other side of the world in Australia, where their self-released 2013 debut EP, Metal & Dust, reached the top of the digital charts. The same year, they signed to Ministry of Sound, and the single "Wasting My Young Years" appeared as their first release on the label. The year 2013 also saw them play a sold-out show at the Islington Assembly Hall and make an appearance at the Great Escape Festival in Brighton. In September 2013, London Grammar released their debut album, If You Wait. It landed at number two on the U.K. album chart and hit the Top 20 in Australia, New Zealand, France, and Ireland. After receiving such positive reviews, the trio headed out in support of the release in 2014, culminating in two sold-out shows at London's Brixton Academy. That same year, they picked up two Ivor Novello awards for the single "Strong" as well as two AIM awards for Breakthrough of the Year and Most Played Independent Act.

After a whirlwind 2014, the trio retreated into their normal lives, rekindling friendships and writing music. At the beginning of 2017, the group released the first fruit of those sessions, the single "Rooting for You." Sophomore album Truth Is a Beautiful Thing followed that June. With collaborators including Paul Epworth, Youth, and Jon Hopkins, the album saw the trio taking their sparse electronic pop into more cinematic territory, becoming their first U.K. number one.

The group was featured on the Flume track "Let You Know" in 2019, and returned the next year with "Baby It's You," the lead single from their third album. Californian Soil arrived in 2021 and found Reid taking the reins with songwriting and purposely empowering feminist themes. Co-produced by George FitzGerald, Steve Mac, and Charlie Andrew, the lush set also included singles "America" and "Lose Your Head."

If You Wait

Hey Now

Hey now
Letters burning by my bed for you
Hey now
I can feel my instincts here for you
Hey now
By my bed for you
Hey now
Hey now

Oh, you know it is frightening
Oh, you know it's like lightning
Hey now, now
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hey now
Letters burning by my bed for you
Hey now
Leave it to the wayside like you do
For you
Imagination calling mirrors for you
Hey now
Hey now

Oh, you know it is frightening
Oh, you know it's like lightning
Hey now, now
Hey now, now
Hey now, now
Hey now, now

Stay Awake

I am the blank page before you
I am the fine idea you crave
I live and breathe under the moon
And when you cross that bridge
I'll come find you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Stay awake with me
You know I can't just let you be
Stay awake with me
Take your hand and come and find me

I don't have a skin like you do
To keep it all in like you do
I don't have a soul like you
The only one I have is the one I stole from you

Stay awake with me
You know I can't just let you be
Stay awake with me
Take your hand and come and find me

Stay awake with me
You know I can't just let you be
Stay awake with me
Take your hand and come and find me

Shyer

I'm feeling shyer
And the world gets darker
Hold yourself a little higher
Bridge that gap just further

And all your being
I'd ask you to give it up
An ancient feeling love
So beautifully dressed up
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Feeling shyer
I'm feeling shyer
I'm feeling shyer

Maybe you should call her
Deep in the night for her
And all your being
I'd ask you to give it up
I'd ask you to give it up
Give it up

Wasting My Young Years

You crossed this line
Do you find it hard to sit with me tonight
I've walked these miles
But I've walked them straight lined
You'll never know what it's like to be fine
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm wasting my young years
It doesn't matter if
I'm chasing old ideas
It doesn't matter if
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe, I'm wasting my young years
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe I'm wasting my young years

Don't you know that it's only fear
I wouldn't worry, you have all your life
I've heard it takes some time to get it right

I'm wasting my young years
It doesn't matter if
I'm chasing old ideas
It doesn't matter if
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe, I'm wasting my young years
Maybe, we are, we are
Maybe I'm wasting my young years

I don't know what you are
Don't leave me hanging on
Don't know what you are
Don't leave me hanging on

Sights

What are you afraid of
I know that you are
Keep it in your sights now
And don't let it go far

What are you afraid of
Making it better
Keep it by your side now
Whatever the weather

Keep it together
Keep it together

What did you do
Wonder where your heart came from
What have you done
My only friend keep on
Wander or leave
Turn into winter lights
Keeping your strength
When it gets dark at night

What are you made of
Water and glass
Keep it in your sights now
It's keeping you up

Keep it together
Keep it together

What did you do
Wonder where your heart came from
What have you done
My only friend keep on
Wander or leave
Turn into winter lights
Keeping your strength
When it gets dark at night
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Keep on
Keep the straight line
I'm running, running
The straight line

What did you do
Wonder where your heart came from
What have you done
My only friend keep on
Wander or leave
Turn into winter lights
Keeping your strength
When it gets dark at night

What you're feeling
It's what I'm feeling too
What you're made of
It's what I'm made of too

What are you afraid of
I know that you are
What are you afraid of
I know that you are

Strong

Excuse me for a while
While I'm wide eyed
And I'm so damn caught in the middle

I've excused you for a while
While I'm wide eyed
And I'm so damn caught in the middle

And a lion, a lion
Roars would you not listen
If a child, a child cries
Would you not give them

Yeah and man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong
And man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
Turn a blind eye
With a stare caught right in the middle
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You're caught in the middle

If a lion, a lion
Roars would you not listen
If a child, a child cries
Would you not give them

Yeah and man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong
And man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong

Excuse me for a while
While I'm wide eyed
And I'm so damn caught in the middle
Have you wondered for a while
I have a feeling deep down
You're caught in the middle

Yeah and man seem so strong
And man speak so long
Man never been so wrong
And man seem so strong
Yeah man speak so long
Man never been so wrong

Nightcall

( Kavinsky Cover )

I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel
I'm gonna drive you through the night
Down the hills

I'm gonna tell you something
You don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dumped
But have no fear

There's something inside you
Is hard to explain
There's something inside you, boy
And you're still the same

I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel
I'm gonna drive you through the night
Down the hills

I'm gonna tell you something
You don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dumped
But have no fear

There's something inside you
And is hard to explain
They're talking about you, boy
But you're still the same
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Tell you how, to tell you how
Tell you how
I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel
I'm gonna drive you through the night
Down the hills

I'm gonna tell you something
You don't want to hear
I'm giving you a night call
To tell you how I feel and how I feel


Metal & Dust

And so, you built a life on trust
Though it starts, with love and lust
And when your house, begins to rust
Oh, it's just, metal and dust

We argue, we don't fight
We argue, we don't fight

And all foundation that we made
Built to last, they disintegrate
And when your house begins to rust
Oh it's just, metal and dust
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We don't argue

We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We don't argue

We argue, we don't fight
Stay awake to the middle of the night
Stay awake to the middle of the night

We don't argue
We don't argue
We don't argue

Interlude

Grey stares beneath the moon
Tonight I know I'll be dreaming of you
People and rhythm instead
And there you'll be
There you'll be inside my head
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Hmm, I will dream of you
Hmm, you'll dream of me, too
Hmm, your hands, they're on my face
Hmm, there would be no better place

Some miracle man must have shot me while I wake
I never ran fast enough, oh my mistakes
Would you really want me in the light of day
That very same man shot flaws right through my face

Hmm, I will dream of you
Hmm, you'll dream of me, too
Hmm, your arms curled round my waist
Hmm, there would be no better place

Could you have your arms around me
Could you have your arms around me

Flickers

The path is long, it's cold and wet
Desire paths will lead you quicker here than the rest
And you can hope for a life that is calm
But come in time you're gonna pick up one that feels a little hard
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The wind lays heavy, it weighs in stone
My instinct tells me I should walk this path alone
And you can hope for a life that is calm
But come in time, you're gonna pick up one that feels a little hard

And everytime I go to bed
An image of you flickers in my head
And everytime I fall asleep
An image of you flows in my dream

Footsteps have traced this land before
My skin is hurting, I cannot feel my feet anymore
And you can hope for a life that is calm
But come in time, you're gonna pick up one that feels a little hard

And everytime I go to bed
An image of you flickers in my head
And everytime I fall asleep
An image of you flows in my dream

And everytime I go to bed
An image of you flickers in my head
And everytime I fall asleep
An image of you flows in my dream

It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
Yeah it flickers, it flickers in my head
Yeah it flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers in my head
It flickers, it flickers, it flickers
Here in my head
Yeah in my head now
In my head now
In my head now
In my head
In my head now
In my head
In my head now
In my head
Head, head, head
In my head
Flickers in my head
You'll flicker in my head
Flicker in my head
You'll flicker in my head

If You Wait

To treasure gold is fun
Brother, drop your bag at once
From the air to the people
A mass to take you on
From a clock to the past
A future that I own
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And to find just one other
Seems to be the goal of everyone
From the search to the hurt
I believed I could take you on
We would drink, we would dance
And you would watch me whenever you want

And can you give me
Everything, everything, everything
'Cause I can't give you anything

And if you wait, if you wait
I will trust in time that we will meet again
If you wait

If letters spell out words, son
You chose to put them in order, didn't you
From their meaning, the moment
You tried to take me on
From the air to the room
A bed that I own

And can you give me
Everything, everything, everything
'Cause I can't give you anything

And if you wait, if you wait
I will trust in time that we will meet again
If you wait
I will trust in time that we will meet again

Help

Here we won't find treason heart
Help
Quiet, he sleeps with anything but love
Help
Help
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We need him to stay between us
And do you really understand
Help
Can you help
Help
Help

Perfectly align to future's hour
Evidence he couldn't stay between us
Help
Help

Black paint on a white canvas art
Imprints of the words you chose to say
Help
Can you help
Darling, can you help
Darling, can you, can you help
Help
Help
Darling can you help
Can you

Darling Are You Gonna Leave Me

I'm still holding onto your waistband
Turn away and kick up the red sand
Summer's gone and now I'm bleeding
I can tell now you're thinking of leaving

Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
If you can
If you
If you

Black crows, dusty roads, and a fire
Burns in the distances higher
Hot stones, birth marks, a thin wire
Stretches to the distant horizon
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
Oh darling are you gonna leave me
I'll watch you if you can
If you can
If you can
If you can

I'm still holding onto your waistband
Turn away and kick up the red sand
Summer's gone and now I'm bleeding
I can tell now you're thinking of leaving

Help Me Lose My Mind

Talk to me
And watch me crumble
You will see
Me come undone

Faithfully
I will look over
There I'll find
What you've become
What you've become

You help me lose my mind
And you bring me something I can't define
Help me lose my mind, make me wonder what I felt before
Keep biding more time how much longer
Have I been waiting for
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Jealousy
Will be washed over
Carefully
We will come through

Could it be
Easy to start over
Somehow I will bring you to
What you've become

You help me lose my mind
And you bring me something I can't define
Help me lose my mind, make me wonder what I felt before
Keep biding more time how much longer
Have I been waiting for

Waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting
I've been waiting, waiting, waiting

You help me lose my mind
And you bring me something I can't define
Help me lose my mind make me wonder what I felt before
Keep biding more time how much longer
Have I been waiting for

High Life

Give up the high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me
Follow you, I might the darkest way
Only to leave it once again

And I, I know
I, I know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Put out the bright light
To drive away
All that is honest
And all that is brave
And follow you, I might my darkest day
Only to leave it once again

And I, I know
And I, I know

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

We are, yeah we are, we own everything
We are, yeah we are, we owe nothing
We are, yeah we are, we own everything
We are, yeah we are, we owe nothing
We are, yeah we are, we own everything

If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Give up your high life
If that's ok
Take it or leave it
For me

Maybe

Live young
For me as well
You did always take the weather

Be the one
To carry on
Like you always do

Photographs oh you look so well
And from here I can tell
You'll take a step away from what was so near

And where are you now
Without a sound
Are you there
And a face in the crowd
Feet over harsh ground
Are you there somewhere
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling

Quiet company
Is for you
Is for you to keep

Photographs oh you look so well
And from here I can tell
You'll take a step away from what was so near

And where are you now
Without a sound
Are you there
And a face in the crowd
Feet over harsh ground
Are you there somewhere

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling

And where are you now
Without a sound
Are you there
And a face in the crowd
Feet over harsh ground
Are you there somewhere

Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Are you there somewhere
Maybe, maybe, maybe, maybe, darling
Are you there somewhere

When We Were Young

I know there's a voice that's buzzing in your head
I know there's a heartbeat tripping in your step, tripping in your step
Glad I got my eardrums hurting and I can, hurting and I can
See this working out exactly how I plan

Everything is moving fully like a mess
I know that my voice is buzzing in your head, buzzing in your head
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You know I want this, honey
And it is better than money
And when I'm feeling weak
Think back to times when we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

I can feel your hands they're pulling at my dress
Living in a lie, only memories are left
I know there's a heartbeat tripping in your step
I know there's a voice that's buzzing in your head, buzzing in your head

You know I want this, honey
And it is better than money
And when I'm feeling weak
Think back to times when we were young

When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young
When we were young

I know there's a voice that's buzzing in your head
When we were young
I know there's a heartbeat tripping in your step, tripping in your step
When we were young
Glad I got my eardrums hurting and I can
When we were young

Truth Is A Beautiful Thing

Rooting For You

Let winter break
Let it burn 'til I see you again
I will be here with you
Just like I told you I would
I'd love to always love you
But I'm scared of loneliness
When I'm, when I'm alone with you

I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only, you are the only thing I've ever truly known
So, I hesitate, if I can act the same for you

And my darling
I'll be rooting for you
And my darling
I'll be rooting for you

And where did she go
Truth left us long ago
And I need her tonight
Because I'm scared of loneliness with you, baby
And I should let it go
But all that is left is my perspective
Broken and so left behind again

I know it's hard
Only you and I
Is it all for me
Because I know it's all for you
And I guess, I guess
It is only, you are the only thing I've ever truly known
So, I hesitate, if I can act the same for you

And my darling
I'll be rooting for you
And my darling
I'll be rooting for you

Big Picture

Love, what did you do to me
My only hope is to let life stretch out before me
And break me on this lonely road
I'm made of many things, but I'm not what you are made of

Only now do I see the big picture
But I swear that these scars are fine
Only you could've hurt me in this perfect way tonight
I might be blind, but you've told me the difference
Between mistakes and what you just meant for me

Don't say you ever loved me
Don't say you ever cared
My darkest friend was

Have you forgotten all the lies you left there so fresh
Turning old in the air
And now, you have no weapons
You can try to get close to those I love
Do you really think they don't know what you're made of

Only now do I see the big picture
But I swear that these scars are fine
Only you could've hurt me in this perfect way tonight
I might be blind but you've told me the difference
Between mistakes and what you just meant for me

Don't say you ever loved me
Don't say you ever cared
My darkest friend

Wild eyed

Sun suffocate the atmosphere
But I'm safe with you far away from you
Another fire through another open door
It's what I'm living for

Breath of mine be all that you need
It's not much from a broken nothing
Wear another truth on your turned-up sleeve
This is everything I dream

He-hell no
I am wild eyed and waiting
Yeah hell no
I am wild eyed and wandering

Fortunately I have enough of you
You say it's not where we are
It's not what we choose
Looking out from all that you have built
With red skies I will drift

Yeah hell no
I am wild eyed and waiting
Yeah hell no
I am wild eyed and wandering

Yeah hell yeah
I am wild eyed and waiting
Hell hell no
I am wild eyed and wandering

What are your dreams
What are your dreams
What are your dreams, yeah
What are your dreams

Oh Woman Oh Man

I can see that you're giving up
It should not mean that much to me
And I don't know where the rest go
But everybody's been telling me no

But I'll always have a thing for you
I'd move the earth
But nothing made you want me better
There is nothing I can do
But steal the moon
But nothing made you want me better

Oh woman oh man
Choose a path for a child
Great mirrored plans
Oh woman oh man
Take a devil by the hands to
Yellow sands

And I can see that you're giving up
So tell me it should not mean this much to me
And I don't know where the rest goes
Everybody's been telling me no

But I'll always have a thing for you
I'd move the earth
But nothing made you want me better
There is nothing I can do
But steal the moon
And nothing made you want me better

Oh woman oh man
Choose a path for a child
Great mirrored plans
Oh woman oh man
Take a devil by the hands to
Yellow sands

Woman choose your man
Do you really understand
Oh, do you really understand
Do you really understand

Oh woman oh man
Choose a path for a child
Great mirrored plans
Oh woman oh man
Take a devil by the hands to
Yellow sands

Woman choose your man
Who understands
Oh, do you really understand
Oh, do you really understand

Hell To The Liars

Hell to the liars
Here's to you and me
Hell to the best of us
Here's to you and me

Hell to the righteous ones
Here's to them
The grey-suited walkers
Prestigious men

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love
Here's to the things you love

Those who are born with love
Here's to you trying
And I'm no better than those I judge
With all my suffering

Hell to the liars
Here's to you and me
I look way above us
Seeing no one free

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love
Here's to the things you love

Here's to the things you love
Here's to those you fight enough
Hell to the rest of us
Here's to the things you love
Here's to the things you love

Everyone Else

Time is worth everything
Words against the tide
Grand failing of failings
And everything you call mine
Blessings on horizons, I swear
I saw people on the floor
Underwater and over there
Under oceans and in my head

Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done

I'm flying away from fire
And I'm running from the known
I see the most beautiful colors here
In a terrifying storm

Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else in another life
Now look what you've done

And you won't find me here
You won't find me there
You won't find me anywhere
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done

Yeah

It's enough you look at me that way
It's enough you ever know
Are you every single time you stay
On a word you won't leave you alone

'Cause everyone else knows why
Everyone else saw why
Look what they've done
Everyone else saw why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done
Everyone else knows why
Everyone else knows why
Look what you've done

Non Believer

We both know that you wanna love her
Skies are open crying, please don't believe her
'Cause she'll tell you lies and then say it doesn't matter
And you're pleased to see her calling them non-believers

But maybe she loves you and I'm just a preacher
Those burning skies and all who don't believe her
Non-believers, no
Don't believe her, no

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

Do you realize again, you chased an idea
Healed an earth behind some broken creature

Maybe she loves you and I'm just a preacher
Non-believers crying don't believe her
Don't believe her, no
Don't believe her, no

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

Give you my all and you're taking my everything

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

All that we are, all that we need
They're different things
Oh, maybe what we are and what we need
They're different things

All that we are, that we need
All what we are, what we need

Bones Of Ribbon

Take my efforts high above red hues
Bones of ribbon don't stop me now
Whites went blue, then went yellow
Feet don't stop me now
They found me there in the sands
Bones of ribbon in my hands
Whites went blue, then went yellow
Pull off the cloak, time off the wall

Take determination
Take whatever you need
'Cause your body's made of metal
And your skin, it isn't real

Found me there in the sands
Bones of ribbon in my hands
Whites went blue, then went yellow
Please don't stop me now

Take determination
Take whatever you need
'Cause your body's made of metal
And your skin, it isn't real

They found me there in the sands
Bones of ribbon in my hand
Whites went blue, and then went yellow
And your feet don't stop me now
Feet don't stop me now

Well you know when you know, hey
Oh no, do you know it enough, hey
You won't know 'till you know it enough
You won't know 'till you know you know it enough
Feet don't stop me now
Feet don't stop me now

Who Am I

There is life in the dark
So small but there you are
Hand in hand, this life, you are
Something I can't understand
Endless thoughts, they get ahead
Blue against my better sense
I am trying my best
To fit in with the rest

Who am I
Who am I to want you now you're leaving
Who am I
Who am I, who am I to judge you now you're leaving

Who am I
Who am I
Who am I
Who am I

All my love in the dark
Be close but miles apart
And I am trying my best
To fit in with the rest

Who am I
Who am I
Who am I
Who am I

Who am I
Who am I to want you now you're leaving
Who am I
Who am I, who am I to judge you now you're leaving

Who am I
Who am I
Who am I
Who am I

Leave The War With Me

Fair game, go on and drop your head
Feathers gone and make you lose mine
Losing love all over again
But it's my way 'till the end of time
Let's tread when I drop my head
Fear going, let me lose mine
I'm losing love all over again
But it's my way 'till the end of time

And where do we go
And I'm leaning towards
Losing my mind with this feeling no more

Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me

Fair trials, they don't exist my friend
Only a circus in my mind
Judgement's gone and there's no love again
But it's my way 'till the end of time

Where do we go
And I'm leaning towards
Losing my mind and I'm feeling no more

Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me
Oh, better leave that war with me

Truth Is a Beautiful Thing

Miles and miles on my own
Walk with shame, I follow on
A language to find hard to hear
Not to understand, just disappear

To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here
I do not think you'd take this pain
You'll be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh, the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh, the truth is a beautiful thing

I wear another thought of you
There's so much home I give to you
Hide you somewhere they don't know
Deep in my call you know you have a throne

Hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here
I don't think you'll take this pain
You'll be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh the truth is a beautiful thing

What A Day

What a day
See you in the way
What a life
But you look at me that way

What a day
What a life
What a waste
What a lie

You still shot me, makes me wonder
Streetlights when I was younger
I heard you keep on running
I heard you keep on coming but
Here comes the rain and thunder
Here comes, it pulls you under

Different Breeds

There are so many different breeds, yeah
I just need to find one that fits
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came, yeah
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came
Send me in circles across the plains, yeah
One long line through America
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came, yeah
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came

Oh, you know I'm glad you came
Oh, understand it's a lonely game
Waiting on you but you're taking your time again
Oh, you know I'm glad you came

Guess I was born with the wrong tongue, yeah
In the wrong place and at the wrong time
Raised palms, raised faces at me
It's a not alarm just short circuit vanity
And I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came, yeah
I know I don't show it but I'm glad you came

Oh, you know I'm glad you came
Oh, understand it's a lonely game
Waiting on you but you're taking your time again
Oh, you know I'm glad you came

Oh, you know I'm glad you came
Oh, understand it's a lonely game
Waiting on you but you're taking your time again
Oh, you know I'm glad you came

I'm glad you came
I'm glad you came

Control

And I guess that's control
Forgetting your name
And I guess that's control
Is knowing your place

Let's watch the earth fall apart
That beautiful decay
Bring your words and bring your art
All of these words we say

Let's put something magical
So special in a day
And I guess that's control
It is forgetting your name

I am not organic, no
I was hardwired this way
Perfect sound doesn't cut it, no
So don't ask me to change

Hard pride like mechanical
Together on an empty stage
Bring your life and bring your home
Your thoughts and all of your brain

Let's put something magical
So special in a day
And I guess that's control
It is forgetting your name

And I guess that's control...

Trials (Demo)

Behind it all there's ordinary life
And would you want me standing in the same light
I wasn't wary of trouble when it's under my skin
They never made me aware of all of those things
And they were your words so don't leave them on their own
You should stand by them, build them a throne
And if you want me, then have me maybe
I will build you the happiest home

When I'm with you I'm not alone
I still believe I might not be enough
Hey, yeah, hey, trials they make you what you are
But it goes against the grain
All of these things I've seen, you're not

And it is about the ordinary life
But would you want me standing in the same light
Well I wasn't wary of trouble when it's under my skin
They never made me aware of all of those things
And if you want me, so don't leave them on their own
You should stand by them, build them a throne
And if you want me, then have me maybe
I will build you the happiest home

When I'm with you I'm not alone
I still believe I might not be enough
Hey, yeah, hey, trials they make you what you are
Does it goes against the grain
All of these things I've seen, you're not

When I'm with you I'm not alone
I still believe that I might not be enough
Trails they make you what you are
And it goes against the grain
All of these things I've seen, you're not

May The Best (Church Mix)

I really hate the way you called for me
I hate the way your voice, it travels seas
So take the guard out of your stare for me
'Cause I don't see him standing there in front of me

Don't stop what you're doing, just love me
Come make it right
Don't stop these things in the deepest and the darkest night

May the best of you ring true
May the best of me be enough to keep you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you

I really love the way that you saw me
You picked me up and you carried me
She took the guard out of your stare for me
Kind hands make simple work, you see

Don't stop what you're doing and love me
Come make it right
Don't stop these things in the deepest and the darkest night

May the best of you ring true
May the best of me be enough to keep you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you
Or I'm already losing you

I'm already losing you
I'm already losing you
May the best of me be enough to keep you
May the best of you ring true
May the best of me be enough to keep you
May the best of you ring true
Or I'm already losing you

Bitter Sweet Symphony (Live)

(The Verve)

'Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony this life
Tryna make ends meet, you're a slave to the money then you die
I'll take you down the only road I have ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the thins meet, yeah

And I'll change, I can change, I can change, I can change

I need to hear some sounds that recognizes pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine let it cleanse my mind I feel free now
But the airway's clean and there's nobody's singing to me now

Californian Soil

Californian Soil

I left my soul
On Californian soil
And I left my pride
With that woman by my side

I never had a willing hand
And I never had a plan
But I'm glad I found you here
But I'm glad I've got you here

But I never had a name
And I never felt the same
They keep on trying on
And they will keep on trying it on
And they will keep on trying it on
And I never felt the same

I am young, I am old
And so you do what you're told
I never had a willing hand
And so you pack up all your bags

But I'm glad I've got you here
Well, I'm glad I've got you here
But I never felt the same
And this life is just a game

They keep on trying it on
They keep on trying it on
And they will keep on trying it on
Until you never feel the same

Missing

Oh, I wish I was your favourite
Your creator is the all-seeing alpha
The dogs who love the drama mama
She's in the kitchen, best believe in that
She's cooking up a real storm for you
Traditional mixture

Everybody's got their own idea
Of right and wrong with arms wide open
Everybody's got their own idea
Of right and wrong
The ones who get broken

I worry that one day you'll go missing
And who will notice when you're gone?
I bet I'll call you farther from afar
And break the news that you have vanished
Like a star

On account of your behaviour
As a saviour, you're a real life-giver
The one who pays fiver lines are
In the kitchen a real mister with that jacket on
The girls all cooking
The ones you've been provoking

Everybody's got their own idea
Of right and wrong with arms wide open
Everybody's got their own idea
Of right and wrong
The ones who get broken

I worry that one day you'll go missing
And who will notice when you're gone?
I bet I'll call you farther from afar
And break the news that you have vanished
Like a star

Everybody's got their own idea
Of right and wrong with arms wide open
Love to see you happy again
With a love beside you
A house full of friends
But we are what we are
This life has no end
And we're breaking apart
There's a long road ahead

I worry that one day you'll go missing
And who will notice when you're gone?
I bet I'll call you farther from afar
And break the news that you have vanished
Like a star

Lose Your Head

I need to learn
When this thing called love
When it's a mirror, baby
Can you see
All those parts of me
Broken across the world

I need to find
Some kind of peace of mind
It's a demon, baby
When it comes
Like my oldest friend
Have you got a friend
In the night, you say

You miss me now
What a way to lose your head
You say you miss me now
What a way to lose your head

What a way to lose your head
What a way to lose your head
What a way to go to bed
What a way to get ahead
What a way to go to bed
With those thoughts inside your head
What a way to go to bed
What a way to go to bed

There's a place
I see it in your head
Full of evil, baby
Can you see
All those parts of me
Broken across the world

You say you miss me now
What a way to lose your head
You say you miss me now
What a way to lose your head

What a way to lose your head
What a way to lose your head
What a way to go to bed
What a way to get ahead
What a way to go to bed
With those thoughts inside your head
What a way to go to bed
What a way to go to bed

What a way to lose your head
What a way to lose your head
What a way to go to bed
What a way to get ahead
What a way to go to bed
With those thoughts inside your head
What a way to go to bed
What a way to go to bed

What a way to lose your head
What a way to lose your head
What a way to go to bed
What a way to get ahead

Lord It's a Feeling

I saw the way you made her feel
Like she should be somebody else
I saw the way she tried to hold you
When your heart was just a shell
I saw the words she wrote that broke my heart
It was a living hell
I saw the way you laughed behind her back
When you fucked somebody else

I saw the way you made her feel
Like she should be somebody else
I know you think the stars align for you
And not for her as well
I undеrstand, I can admit
That I have felt those things mysеlf
I saw the way you laughed behind her back
When you fucked somebody else

Lord, it's a feeling
It comes to find you
Lord, it's a feeling
That I felt

If it's convenient for you
You want her love, she'll give you more
That's when your words are so convincing
Say you'll try until she's sure that you will change
I can admit that I have been right here before
But on that morning when you're proud
You said I fucked somebody of course

Lord, it's a feeling
It comes to find you
Lord, it's a feeling
(That I felt)
It comes to find you
(Like no one else)
When the rest of us have nothing left
She won't be yours
Lord, it's a feeling
That I felt
Lord, it's a feeling

Feeling, it will come to find you
Feeling, it will come to find you
Feeling, it will come to find you
(Lord, it's a feeling)

Feeling, it will come to find you
Feeling, it will come to find you
Feeling, it will come to find you

Lord, it's a feeling
That I felt
It comes to find you
Like no one else
When the rest of us have nothing left
She won't be yours
When the rest of us have nothing left
She won't be yours

How Does It Feel

Pure emotion
Let it burn like fire
Do you yearn for a change
And I hope that you learned
To never make the same mistake

Do you think about me
When you're all alone
When the tide comes in
Tell me where will you go
Do you think about us
When you're feeling low
Do you think about us

How does it feel
Now that I'm gone
How does it, how does it feel to get low
How does it feel
Now you're alone
How does it, how does it feel to feel low

How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel

Your regret now
Does it hurt
In the confusion
That things have stayed the same
And I know
Now I've learned
To never make the same mistake

Do you think about me
When you're all alone
When the tide comes in
Tell me where you will go
Do you think about us
When the sky is low
Do you think about us

How does it feel
Now that I'm gone
How does it, how does it feel to get low
How does it feel
Now you're alone
How does it, how does it feel to feel low

How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel

Call me tonight
Will you call me tonight
(How does it feel)
Got a feeling you might
You will never be the same

Pure emotion
Let it burn
I'll never make the same mistake

How does it feel
Now that I'm gone
How does it, how does it feel to get low
How does it feel
Now you're alone
How does it, how does it feel to feel low

How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel
How does it feel

Baby, It's You

Love

All these lights are changing
See them everywhere
In my veins like lightning
I don't even care

And the ground is heavy
I don't want to move
All these colours in me
But all I see is you
And nothing else matters

You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you

All this pain is faceless
Singing back to me
There's an ocean here
But you are all I see
And nothing else matters

You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
You, baby, it's you
Baby, it's you
Baby, it's you

Love

Call Your Friends

I've been waiting on my own
For a lifetime and it shows
Got the way I seem to
Keep my distance from you
Baby there's no need to go
Prove you love me when it shows
And the ones before you
Make it hard to love at all

Every time I try
To make myself seem small
In the arms of others
Who never loved me better
All the ways I tried
To make myself less selfish
It never made them stay
And I can love me like this
I can love me like this

So can you call all your friends baby
Tell them to find other plans
'Cause I need you tonight baby
I need to know that everything's alright baby
I need to know that everything's alright

I've been waiting for someone
Who will cure what I've become
Got the way I seem to
Need nobody but you
Maybe there's another way
I can never make you stay
And the ones before you
Never loved me like you do

Every time I try
To make myself seem small
In the arms of others
They never love you better
Every time I tried
To make myself seem empty
It never made them stay
It only made them hurt me
Only made them hurt me

So can you call all your friends baby
Tell them to find other plans
'Cause I need you tonight baby
I need to know that everything's alright baby

So can you call all your friends baby
Tell them to find other plans
'Cause I need you tonight baby
I need to know that everything's alright baby

So can you call all your friends
Tell them to find other plans
'Cause I need you tonight
I need to know that everything's alright
I need to know that everything's alright

All My Love

Oh darling, I see all of your colour
Drain from you
Oh darling, I feel all of your energy
As it starts to fade from you
And I see all your shadow in pieces on the floor
People, they want more from you and
I see all shadow

All my love
All my love

Oh, ever since I was a child with you
I kept a place in my heart safe for you

All my love
All my love
All my love
All my love

Talking

Oh, all of these changes
Keep on following me
Visions that wake me relentless
Leaders mean nothing to me

Oh, all of these people
I know them true at the seams
But I see you in the corners
Eyes they look away from me and

Are we talking now baby
There's a life here for free
Are we talking now baby
Talking to you, talk to me

Oh, all of these roads are
Leading to nowhere you see
Whеn this world ends as we know it
What's left will bе you and me

So, all of these changes
Are the visions of futures I see
And I see truth in our corners
Eyes look away from me and

Are we talking now baby
There's a life here for free
Are we talking now baby
Talking to you, talk to me

Talk to you, talk to me
Talk to you, talk to me
Talk to you, talk to me
Talk to you, talk to me

Talk to you, talk to me
Talk to you, talk to me
Talk to you, talk to me
Talk to you

Hmm, are we talking now baby
There's a life here for free
Are we talking now baby
Talking to you, talk to me

Are we talking now baby
There's a life here for free
Are we talking now baby
Talking to you, talk to me

I Need the Night

There is a voice, it is chastizing me
I was so cold, what had become of me
Take all your limbs and wrap them round your neck
So they all laugh at your predicament
All of the boys and girls, all people in this world
Give me a dream and I will give you my word

I need the night
And I need this drink
Will you sit with me
And bring all of your friends
Chase the morning light
Till all of this ends

There's a whisper that our God is a she
She sits on high over the land and the sea
Her breast is heavy in a brand new world
Tell your grandmother and your boys and your girls
She's got a brand nеw favourite
Tell all the shrinks and hatеrs
Give her a dream and she will give you her word

I need the night
And I need this drink
Will you sit with me
And bring all of your friends
Chase the morning light
Till all of this ends
I need the night
And I need this drink
Will you sit with me
And bring all of your friends
Chase the morning light
Till all of this ends

When I realized that I never loved them
That the ones before just held me down
And caused me problems
You say that the way you see me
The way you hold me high
Tell me that you love me and let these days turn cold as night

I need the night
And I need this drink
Will you sit with me
And bring all of your friends
Chase the morning light
Till all of this ends
I need the night
And I need this drink
Will you sit with me
And bring all of your friends
Chase the morning light
Till all of this ends

America

And I hope that you find it
All that you need
I hope that you stay young and wild and free
You'll have America

And I hope that you're better than all of your friends
I hope that they hold you until the end
You can have America

But all of our time chasing America
But she never had a hope for me
All of our time chasing a dream
A dream that meant nothing to me

I see where I found you, where they all lay
All of the greats, they are here to stay
Here in America

And I hope that you find it
All that you are
I hope that it sets you out
In the heart of America

But all of our time chasing America
But she never had a home for me
All of our time chasing a dream
A dream that meant nothing to me

And all of the parties they fade
And yes, my looks they'll go away
I'll just be left here in America
But she never had a home for me

All I Want For Christmas

(Mariah Carey / BBC Session Live Lounge 2017)

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Baby all I want for Christmas is you

All Night

(Beyonc cover / Live in BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge)

Found the truth beneath your lies
And true love never has to hide
I'll trade your broken wings for mine
I've seen your scars and kissed your crimes

So many people I know, they're just tryna touch ya
Kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you
Give you time to prove that I can trust you again
I'm gonna kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you

All night long
Good love all night long

My love was stronger than your pride
Beyond your darkness, I'm your light, no
And you get deep, you touch my mind
Baptize your tears and dry your eyes, no

So many people I know, they're just tryna touch ya
Kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you
Give you time to prove that I can trust you again
I'm gonna kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you

All night long
Sweet love all night long

Boy, nothing real can be threatened, no
True love breathes salvation back into me
And with every tear came my redemption
And my torturer became my remedy

So many people I know, they're just tryna touch ya
Kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you
Give you time to prove that I can trust you again
I'm gonna kiss up and rub up and feel up
Kiss up and rub up and feel up on you

All night long
Good love all night long
Sweet love, good love
Sweet love, sweet love
All I wanna, be no other
Be together, I remember
Sweet love all night long
How I missed you, my love
How I missed you, my love

Blinding Lights

(The Weeknd)

I've been tryna call
I've been on my own for long enough
Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe

I'm going through withdrawals
You don't even have to do too much
You can turn me on with just a touch, baby

I look around and
Sin City's cold and empty
No one's around to judge me
I can't see clearly when you're gone

I said, oh, I'm blinded by the lights
I can't sleep til I feel your touch
I said, oh, I'm drowning in the night
When I'm like this, you're the one I trust

I'm running out of time
'Cause I can see the sun light up the sky
So I hit the road in overdrive, baby

The city's cold and empty
No one's around to judge me
I can't see clearly when you're gone

I said, oh, I'm blinded by the lights
I can't sleep until I feel your touch
I said, oh, I'm drowning in the night
When I'm like this, you're the one I trust
Hey, hey

I'm just calling back to let you know
I could never say it on the phone
I will never let you go this time

I'm just calling back to let you know
I could never say it on the phone
I will never let you go this time

I said, oh, I'm blinded by the lights
I can't sleep until I feel your touch
And I said, oh, I'm drowning in the night
When I'm like this, you're the one I trust

Devil Inside

( Inxs Cover / Game of Thrones OST )

Here comes the woman
With the look in her eye
Raised on leather
With flesh on her mind
Words as weapons sharper than knives
Makes you wonder how the other half die
The other half die

The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside
The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside

Here come the man
With the look in his eye
Fed on nothing
But full of pride
And look at them go
Look at them kick
Makes you wonder how the other half live
The other half live
How the other half live


The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside
The devil inside, the devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside

The devil inside, the devil inside
And every single one of us the devil inside
And every single, every single one of us
The devil inside, devil inside, the devil
Devil inside

Dreams

(Fleetwood Mac / Live)

Now here you go again, you say
You want your freedom
Well who am I to keep you down

It's only right that you should play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had and what you lost
And what you had, and what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know

Now here I go again, I see a crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It's only me who wants to wrap around your dreams and
Have you any dreams you'd like to sell
Dreams of loneliness

Like a heartbeat drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering
What you had and what you lost
And what you had, what you lost

Thunder only happens when it's raining
Players only love you when they're playing
Say women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you'll know
You will know

Everywhere You Go

( Nightcall EP )

There's a new way
It's a hard way
Only for you'll say
Cause you're my baby

It's a new day
And a clean slate
Oh how our dream of it
Cause you're my baby

Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
ls everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go

You say it's me here
You say it's only you
The one that I love
You're all I dream of

Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
Everywhere you go oh
ls everywhere (You'll be everywhere)
I go (You'll be everywhere)
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And I can't stand it
Don't make me, don't make me try to be without it
Don't make me try to be without it
Don't make me try to be without it
You know that I hurt don't wanna try

You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go
You'll be everywhere I go

Feelings

( Strong EP )

Living in hindsight, I fought along, she said
Like an old maid with troubles hanging in her head
You've been flying like a bird with no wings
But you stay afloat like a bubble without strings

People keep on taking the ground from your feet
You are the only one playing hide and seek
Forever you go on, you're stealing my ideas
And this old maid, she won't wipe away my tears

And when you go
You save my soul
Tell my boy
I love him so
And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so

With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling

And I will take over
What is the worst thing that could happen
You've been carving like a hand with no knife
Trying to mend old maid trouble and strife
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
People keep on taking the ground from your feet
You are the only one playing hide and seek
Forever you go on, you're stealing my ideas
And this old maid, she won't wipe away my tears

And when you go
You save my soul
Tell my boy
I love him so
And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so

And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so
And when you stay
You save my soul
And you can tell my boy
That I love him so

With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling
With all my feeling

In For The Kill

(La Roux cover / Live in BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge)

We can fight our desires
But when we start making fires
We get ever so hot
Whether we like it or not

They say we can love who we trust
But what is love without lust
Two hearts with accurate devotion
And what are feelings without emotion

I'm going in for the kill
I'm doing it for a thrill
And I'm hoping you'll understand
And not let go of my hand

I hang my hopes out on the line
Will they be ready for you in time
If you leave them out too long
They'll be withered by the sun

Full stops and exclamation marks
My words stumble before I start
And how far can you send emotion
Can this bridge cross the ocean

And I'm going in for the kill
I'm doing it for a thrill
And I'm hoping you'll understand
And not let go of my hand

And I'm going in for the kill
I'm doing it for a thrill
And I'm hoping you'll understand
And not let go of my hand
And not let go of my hand

Let You Know

(Flume feat. London Grammar)

You wanna let me know now that you've let me go
Life is better still and I guess somehow
You'll just keep on coming back

I wanna let you know now that you've let me go
Life is better still and I guess somehow
Everyone says you're coming back

Boy, I let you know that you fill me whole
So now, you try to call me home
Let me know what you're thinking of
And now these words are all air

You wanna let me know now that you've let me go
Life is better still and I guess somehow
You'll just keep on coming back

Boy, I let you know that you fill me whole
So now, you try to call me home
Let me know just what you're thinking of
And now these words are all air

Boy, let me know what you're thinking of
So now, you try to call me home
Let me know just what you're thinking of
And now these words are all air

You won't see what everyone can
Did I make you feel like less of a man
I heard you drive past my house again
Over again, over again

Boy, I let you know that you fill me whole
So now, you try to call me home
Let me know just what you're thinking of
And now these words are all air

Boy, I let you know that you fill me whole
So now, you try to call me home
Let me know just what you're thinking of
And now these words are all air
And now these words are all air

Pure Shores

(All Saints cover / Live in BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge)

I've crossed deserts for miles
Swam water for time
Searching places to find
A piece of something to call mine
A piece of something to call mine

Ran along many moors
Walked through many doors
And the place where I want to be
Is the place I can call mine
Is the place I can call mine

And I'm moving and I'm coming
Can you hear what I hear
It's calling you, my dear
Out of reach, take me to my beach
I can hear it calling you
I'm coming, not drowning
Swimming closer to you

Never been here before
I've been intrigued, I'm unsure
Now I'm searching for more
I've got something that's all mine
I've got something that's all mine

Take me somewhere I can breathe
I've got so much to see
This is where I want to be
In a place I can call mine
In a place I can call mine

And I'm moving, I'm coming
Can you hear what I hear
It's calling you, my dear
Out of reach, take me to my beach
I can hear it calling you
I'm coming, not drowning
Swimming closer to you

Moving, coming
Can you hear what I hear
I hear it calling you
I'm coming, not drowing
Swimming closer to you

Purple Rain

(Prince cover / Live in BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge)

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you
Bathing in the purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend, yeah
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only want to see you
Underneath the purple rain

I only want to see you
I only want to see you
In the, in the purple rain
In the purple rain

Tilted

(Christine and the Queens Cover / Live )

Je commence les livres par la fin
Et j'ai le menton haut pour un rien
Mon il qui pleure c'est cause du vent
Mes absences c'est du sentiment

Je ne tiens pas debout
Le ciel coule sur mes mains
Je ne tiens pas debout
Le ciel coule sur

a ne tient pas debout
Le ciel coule sur mes mains
a ne tient pas debout
Sous mes pieds, le ciel revient

I'll die way before Methuselah
So I'll fight sleep with ammonia
And every morning, with eyes all red
I'll miss them for all the tears they shed

But I'm actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I'm actually good
Can't help it if we

I'm actually good
Can't help it if we're tilted
I'm actually good
Can't help it if we

And I'm doing my face
With a magic marker
I'm in my right place
Don't be a downer

I'm doing my face
With a magic marker
I'm in my right place

Je ne tiens pas debout
Le ciel coule sur mes mains
Je ne tiens pas debout
Le ciel coule sur

a ne tient pas debout
Le ciel coule sur mes mains
a ne tient pas debout
Sous mes pieds, le ciel revient

White Christmas

(Joseph J. Lilley / BBC Session Live Lounge 2017)

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white

Wicked Game

( Chris Isaac Cover / Live )

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
No I want to fall in love
No I want to fall in love
With you
With you

What a wicked game you played to make me feel this way
what a wicked thing to do to let me dream of you
what a wicked thing to say you never felt this way
what a wicked thing to do to make me dream of you

And I want to fall in love
No I want to fall in love
With you

The world was on fire and no one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'd never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you

No I want to fall in love
No I want to fall in love
With you
With you
This girl is only gonna break your heart
Nobody loves no one

Wrecking Ball

(Miley Cyrus / Live Lounge)

We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain
We jumped, never asking why
We kissed, I fell under your spell
A love no one could deny

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was break me
Yeah, you wreck me

I put you high up in the sky
And now, you're not coming down
It slowly turned, you let me burn
And now, we're ashes on the ground

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was break me
Yeah you wreck me
Yeah you wreck me

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you in

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you in

Never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you in

Yeah, you wreck me
Yeah, you wreck me
