Babe – Emeli Sande

I was lost
In the dead of night
But then came angels
I could not fight no
All of a sudden, I’m fading
I was blinded, by the light
Til you said

Babe
It’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe, now
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe

There were sirens
Out to get me
So by now, I swear I’ve heard it all
I just pray
You choose to catch me
But either way
You’re always worth the fall
So I said

Babe it’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe, now
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe

Hey, all the things that they say
Love cause the things they choose to hate
It’s just a love that they’re afraid of
But see, I’m not afraid to take a leap
Not afraid to get too deep
Singing long live the angels
And hey hey, take note of colours in your dreams
Things aren’t as dark as they may seem
Remember fear is in no way truthful
And I say what luck to find you in this life
I’ve been around so many times
And never found someone so beautiful

So babe
It’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe, now
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe, now

Now, babe
Babe, say my name, it’s okay now
Say it loud, shout it out, down the hallway
Love me now, love me now, love me always
Babe, babe, babe, now

So babe
It’s okay, it’s okay now
Let it out, let it love, let it rain down
Hold me now, hold me down, hold me always
Babe, babe, babe

Hurts – Emeli Sande

Baby I’m not made of stone
It hurts
Loving you the way I do
It hurts

Hold tight it’s a sing-a-long
I’m alright, I’m alright, but I could be wrong, baby
I know you remember me
5’3 in the back of the lavory, come on
You could at least try and look at me
Oh man, oh man, what a tragedy, ha ha
Bang, bang, there goes paradise
I chill why we always had to roll the dice, la la
Heartbeat in the regular
Two seats in the back of the cinema, hazy
Ah yeah, you’re forgettin’ it
And all the mad shit we did after that, crazy
Your heart, come on baby
I swear you’re giving me shivers, shivers

Baby, I’m not made of stone
It hurts
Loving you the way I do
It hurts
When all that’s left to do is watch
It burns
Oh baby, I’m not made of stone
It hurts

Hold on it’s a marathon
Run fast, run fast like the rivers run, god damn
Never seen in the restaurant
I took a minute till the penny dropped, you know
My tears don’t fall too often
But your knife is cuttin’ me deep
Deep, deep, deep, deep, deep, deep, deep

Baby, I’m not made of stone
It hurts
Loving you the way I do
It hurts
When all that’s left to do is watch
It burns
Oh baby, I’m not made of stone
It hurts

It hurts the way
That you pretend you don’t remember
It hurts the way
That you forget our times together
Like the time
Laid in bed when you said it’s forever, baby
I can’t, I can’t explain no more

Baby, I’m not made of stone
It hurts
Oh, loving you the way I do
It hurts
When all that’s left to do is watch
It burns
Oh baby, I’m not made of stone
It hurts

Oh baby, I’m not made of stone
It hurts
Loving you the way I do
It hurts

Garden – Emeli Sande

I’m not telling you to love what I love. I’m asking you to take time to know what it is that you love and are in love with. And do what you can, not to offend your sensitive soul. You’ve seen things my lips can’t confess. No pain can bear witness to. No mind can justify. No memory can wipe.

[Emeli Sandé:]
Let me love, let me touch, let me love
Baby, give it up, let me drink from the fountain
In the car, on the street, in the dark
Baby, on the beach, in the back of the garden

Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

You’re in the club, how you dance, how you touch
How you offer up all your love and devotion
Roll it up, spark it up, let it burn
On the balcony, and we can fly to the ocean

Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

You make it real, make me feel, make me feel
I’m as strong as steel and as tall as the mountains
Talk is cheap, can you rescue me?
No place I’d rather be than the back of the garden

Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

[Jay Electronica:]
Once upon a time ago
I threw my cautions to the wind, my friend
And yelled, “Geronimo!”
And rode the wings of love to outer space
But then I fell a thousand miles to Guantanamo
Euphoria to torture
I left a note that had a rhyme, it go:
Love is like a ferris wheel
Love is like a roller coaster
Love is at a standstill
Body after body after body
It’s a landfill
And I just caught a body
In the lobby and got my hands filled
I’m a serial lover
I set up all the dates
That rang up fate and got my friends killed
I barely knew my dad, sometimes I feel like my mother
I love that Purple Rain love
That have a fight, that scratch my face
That fuck outside and ride my motorcycle in the rain love
Love is like a garden, love is like a death sentence
Love is like a pardon, I’m free again and ready
Once outside these prison walls, to believe again is scary
Your garden is my sanctuary

[Emeli Sandé:]
Back of the garden
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Yeah oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop
Oooh ooh ooh, I’m ready
Oooh ooh, don’t stop

[Áine Zion:]
Be my confidant, my shoulder, my diary, my best friend, my mentor, my lover, my teacher, my preacher, my one and only, my everything. From the beam of the sun to the dim of the moon. From before until always I’m yours. So keep me safe within yourself. Bow to my throne, no matter what, and I will stand tall.
