Are You Here Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

He's a real live wire
He's the best of his kind
Wait till you see those eyes
He dresses like this different scene
He'll kiss you make you feel sixteen
What's it even mean?

Are you here
Are you here
Are you here, cause my heart recalls that
It all seems the same
It all feels the same

Pick me up

It's hard to recall the taste of summer
When everywhere around, the chill of winter
It gets so far away

Are you here

And he comes to lay me down in a garden of tuberose's
When he comes around there's nothing more to imagine
Just tuberose's
Tuberose's

Are you here
Are you here
Are you here, cause my heart recalls that it
All seems like
All looks like
It all feels like
It tasted like
Tasted
Tasted like

When he comes to lay me down in a garden of tuberose's
When he comes around there's nothing more to imagine
Just tuberose's
Tuberose's

Wait till you see those eyes

I'd Do It All Again Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

Ooh, you’re searching for something I know,
won’t make you happy
Ooh, you’re thirsting for something I know,
won’t make you happy
Ooh, you did it all again, you broke another skein
It’s hard to believe this time, hard to believe
That my heart, my heart’s an open door
You got all you came for, baby
So weary, someone to love is bigger than your pride’s worth
Is bigger than the pain you got for it hurts
And out runs all of the sadness
It’s terrifying, life, through the darkness

And I’d do it all again, I’d do it all again
I’d do it all again, I’d do it all again
You try sometimes but it won’t stop
You got my heart and my head’s lost, ooh yeah
I’ve been burning down these candles for love, for love
So weary, someone to love is bigger than your pride
Ooh, someone to love, mm, someone to love
Someone to love
Ooh, you’re searching for something I know,
won’t make you happy
Ooh

Feels Like The First Time Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

[Verse 1:]
I could pretend that I was ok
I wind around the parties, drink in hand
I could pretend when you went away
That I had changed and I no longer hear the band

[Bridge 1:]
But I won't lie
I found a love
I had to rediscover
I was emotionally scarred we could not get it away
There are times when it breaks and I feel amazed

[Chorus:]
Feels just like the first time when you kiss me, my lover
Angels in the sky will descend on our love
And it's hard to deny what is happening
Although we talk, talk, talk on the telephone
We laugh, laugh, laugh at the things we know

[Verse 2:]
I've been a soldier for much too long
I'd willingly surrender all my arms
If you decided you won't be long
I'd wait here patient for you
Look for you every morning

[Bridge 2:]
Had this love
There were sparks
We tried to push it on but
I was afraid of the dark
We could not get it away
Never mind what they say
I would feel the same

[Repeat Chorus]

If I could choose then my heart would be in it,
My charms would be in it,
My love would be in it

I know you heard me on the telephone
I know you knew that I was coming for you
But you still won't give me the answer

[Repeat Chorus]

The Blackest Lily Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

I didn't know the day was
I didn't know what the time it was
I didn't know what my heart would do
I was afraid of nothing when you called me on the telephone

I was a creature of appetites
And we played a game that you didn't like
There wasn't nothing that I could do
I can be so bad
I can be so bad
They just took it away and they broke it in two

Colour my heart
Colour my heart
Make it restart
Make it restart
Colour my heart
I want it more than I ever knew

The blackest lily
The blackest pomy
Won't protect my heart from you

You were unnercingly delicate
And I had a weekness for etiquette
You laid a trail that led straight to your door
And I could resist but it was hard to ignore

Colour my heart

Closer Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

[Verse 1:]
I don't want to give you up
But I don't want to hold you up
I don't want ambiguous
I just know that I've had enough

I want you to travel with me
Lay loose and let your mind go free
Show you things that you've never seen
But you just got to go with me

[Bridge:]
Oh, your love is so god that I want to show you
Don't make me responsible for something that you can't find
Oh, your love it is so good
So good that

[Chorus:]
Closer
I want to [2x]
Intimate
I want to [2x]
Near at hand
I want to [2x]
I want to get close you
Experienced
I want to [2x]
Generous
Lay down what's impeding you cause I want to get close to you

[Verse 2:]
I don't wan to give you up
But I'm tired of the pull and push
I'm tired of the making up
Don't you feel that you've had enough?

I want you to journey with me
Explore all the hidden scenes
I don't mind just a bit of tension
But we've got to move in the same direction

[Bridge:]
Oh, your love is so god that I want to show you
Don't make me responsible for something that you can't find
Oh, your love it is so good
So good that

[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge:]
Oh, your love is so god that I want to show you
Don't make me responsible for something that you can't find
Oh, your love it is so good
So good that

[Repeat Chorus]

Love's On Its Way Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

[Verse 1:]
Oh Father,
I wish I had understanding.
Never known more
Never been so well informed
We know the score
Heard it all before,
But I've never felt more powerless

There's so much blood on the streets
So much hope refused
So much grainy teenage photographs on the evening news

Oo, when everywhere's violence
Silently I go

[Chorus:]
Love's on its way
I hope it won't be too late

[Verse 2:]
When the day comes
And I've counted all my sins
How mant I'll see
I want to be able to say that I did more, more than pray
I did more
Than just spend my money
Just writing letters
Than just going out marching
I did more than talking and saying the right thing
Wearing the right thing
It's time for an uprising

[Chorus:]
Love's on its way
Hope it won't be too late

Love's on its way
Love's on its way
Love's on its way

Hope it won't be too late

I Would Like To Call It Beauty Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

So young for death,
We walk in shoes too big
But you play it like a poet,
Like you always did.
And I lay face upturned on the palm of God,
Pushed on by the fingertips of dreams,
They haunted me,
Consoling me.

And I would like to call, call it beauty,
Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
And I would like to call it beauty, ....

You slept a sigh like the angels speak,
And we danced into tomorrow on bleeding feet
And I had thought that I would die here
But you pushed me on,
You pushed me on,
You pushed me on

(Oh) And I would like to call it beauty,
Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
And I would like to call it beauty, ....

You can keep it all locked up in your leaden chest
Or you can lay mouth open on the water's edge
But all your angels and your God will stitch and wash you

Oh I would like to call, call it beauty,
Strained as love's become, it still amazes me
And I would like to call it beauty, ....

Paris Nights / New York Mornings Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

Breakfast at Mickey's, make-up still on
Elbows on the greasy table cloth
One more coffee and one last cigarette

Smiling at the rain cause you hold me close
My best dress on underneath this old coat
Walking down Bleecker no one is awake yet

Still, seven hours
Nothing but clouds
It's enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
So pick me up and take me out

Oo we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Oo we race till we're out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you've taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

I could see the lights from the restaurant
I couldn't quite perfect that nonchalance
Paris and champagne with one brown sugar cube

And we danced while the band played "She's not there"
Kissed me in the rain by the Rue Voltaire
It's a perfectly good way to ruin those silk shoes

Still, seven hours
Nothing but clouds
It's enough to make your heart sigh
We should try
For each other and for the lovers

Oo we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Oo we race till we're out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you've taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

You change and you grow
But we were young
We were young and we didn't know
We didn't know

Oo we crash into love-filled nights
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Oo we race till we're out of time
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
And now that you've taken me up so high
(Paris nights and New York mornings)
Don't let me down
Don't let me down

Paper Dolls Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

You have incredible eyes and all the boys will go wild for you
But I was scared in case you made me made do those things
But would you oh would you believe me that I was your fool
Cause I've been lying awake at night wondering where you are now And if that metal turned out right

[refrain]
All my life all my life
I said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
Yeah
I have tried I have tried
To say it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something

You wore undoubtable smiles you were divorced from inside they said
But I was disturbed when I heard that it's not what you preferred It gets to the point they expected
And who are you to disappoint them anyway
Time will get you in the end
Just when you shook off that regret
Around the corner comes a Mary in a fur coat to talk about it

[refrain]
All my life all my life
I said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
Yeah
I have tried I have tried
To say it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something

Many words that have been spoken
Cut me out like paper dolls
Made me into something different
Something I could not dissolve
So far over don't their words slow ya

[refrain]
All my life all my life
I said it's not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
Yeah
I have tried I have tried
To say it's alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something

Diving For Hearts Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

[Verse 1:]
Till then I wasn't alive,
I longed for you like the lovesick moon pulls the tide.
So I peeled off my skin,
I just slipped right in
And I become alive.

[Bridge 1:]
'Cause down here there's no fear
There's no cause for panic
There's just bright cold calm,
I feel no harm.
This underwater feeling's abandon and it fires my heart.

[Chorus:]
Was it emotion
Or should I just keep on diving,
Keep on diving down?
Under this ocean
I long to keep on diving,
Till my heart is found.
It's got a hold on me
Can't forget the things I've seen

[Verse 2:]
World will all end
And new worlds will begin
It's a thought so stark.
We're at once determinant,
Yet so insignificant,
Spinning out in the velvet dark.

[Bridge 2:]
Still, down here
There's no fear
There's no cause for panic
There's just this bright cold calm
Yeah, it leaves a scar
So show me how to find again,
If I'm lost, show me where you are

[Corinne Ad-lib's until then]

The Sea Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

[Verse 1:]
I never knew you were standing on the shore,
It says everything,
Explains everything.
That from then on it couldn't be just like before,
it says everything,
Changes everything.
So don't you stand there wishing your life would fade away
And don't you go round with anyone who makes you feel ashamed.

[Chorus:]
Goodbye paradise,
I hope there's something you could try
Goodbye
You're so changed that you'd give it all away
Goodbye,
Goodbye

[Verse 2:]
I saw your face in the faded light,
Said everything,
Explained everything.
It haunts all your days and it comes to you at night,
You did everything,
Blame anything.
But don't you cut those ribbons to take away the pain
And don't you go round with that same old crowd,
They make you feel ashamed

[Chorus:]
Goodbye paradise,
I hope there's something you could try
Goodbye
You're so changed that you'd give it all away
Goodbye,
Goodbye paradise

The sea,
The majestic sea,
Breaks everything,
Crushes everything,
Cleans everything,
Takes everything
From me

"Corinne Bailey Rae" (2006)

Like A Star Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

Just like a star across my sky,
Just like an angel off the page,
You have appeared to my life,
Feel like I'll never be the same,
Just like a song in my heart,
Just like oil on my hands,
Honour to love you

Still I wonder why it is,
I don't argue like this,
With anyone but you,
We do it all the time,
Blowing out my mind,

You've got this look I can't describe,
You make me feel like I'm alive,
When everything else is au fait,
Without a doubt you're on my side,
Heaven has been away too long,
Can't find the words to write this song,
Oh...
Your love,

Still I wonder why it is,
I don't argue like this,
With anyone but you,
We do it all the time,
Blowing out my mind,

Now I have come to understand,
The way it is,
It's not a secret anymore,
'cause we've been through that before,
From tonight I know that you're the only one,
I've been confused and in the dark,
Now I understand,

I wonder why it is,
I don't argue like this,
With anyone but you,
I wonder why it is,
I wont let my guard down,
For anyone but you
We do it all the time,
Blowing out my mind,

Just like a star across my sky,
Just like an angel off the page,
You have appeared to my life,
Feel like I'll never be the same,
Just like a song in my heart,
Just like oil on my hands

Enchantment Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

I wait for you.
I don't know why.
All I know is I can't hide.
At this temperature you could take over my mind.
Like gossamer, you softly touch.
He draws me in, I'm powerless.
He possesses an enchantment.

Tell me I'm forgiven.
He calls, don't know how I fell under his spell.
Lately I've been driven. he smiles, an enchantment.

I wait for you.
I'm mesmerized this love is like a potion in disguise.
I'd tightrope walk with a blindfold on my eyes.
I can't escape, or so it seems.
I'd run away, he's in my dreams.
He possesses an enchantment.

Tell me I'm forgiven.
He calls, don't know how I fell under his spell.
Lately I've been driven.
He smiles, an enchantment.

It's the kind of sleepwalk that never ends.
A type of loan with no dividends.
It's a parlour game where you're given chase.
Guess it could be called an acquired taste.
I know, he knows, he calls, I go, I know.
This could be an enchantment.

Why don't you tell me I'm forgiven?
He calls, don't know how I fell under his spell.
I'm forgiven... lately I've been driven.
He smiles and I give in,
An enchantment.

Put Your Records On Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

Three little birds, sat on my window.
And they told me I don't need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.

Maybe sometimes, we've got it wrong, but it's alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don't you hesitate.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in a bar by the roadside,
(just relax, just relax)
Don't you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do.

Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it's alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don't you think it's strange?

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.

'Twas more than I could take, pity for pity's sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don't even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

Oh, you're gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

Till It Happens To You Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

I know what I said
Was heat of the moment
But theres a little truth in between the words we've spoken
Its a little late now to fix the heart thats broken
Please don't ask me where I'm going
Cause I don't know
No I don't know anymore

It used to feel like heaven
Used to feel like may
I used to hear those violins playing heart strings like a symphony
Now they've gone away
Nobody wants to face the truth
But you wont believe what love can do
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

Went to the old flat
Guess I was trying to turn the clock back
How come that nothing feels the same now when I'm with you
We used to stay up all night in the kitchen
When our love was new
Oooh love I'm a fool to believe in you
Cause I don't know
No I don't know
Anymore

It used to feel like heaven
It used to feel like may
I used to hear those violins playing heart strings like a symphony
Now they've gone away
Nobody wants to know the truth
Until their hearts broken
Don't you dare tell them
What you think to do
Till they get over
You can only learn these things
From experience
When you get older
I just wish that someone would have told me
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you
Till it happens to you

Trouble Sleeping Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

It's late and I'm feeling so tired
Having trouble sleeping.
This constant compromise
Between thinking and breathing.

Could it be I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in?
Won't say that I'm falling in love
Tell me I don't seem myself
Couldn't I blame something else?

Just don't say I'm falling in love

Some kind of therapy
Is all I need
Please believe me
Some instant remedy
That can cure me completely

Could it be that I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in?
Won't say that I'm falling in love
Tell me I don't seem myself
Couldn't I blame something else?

Just don't say I'm falling in love
'cause I've been there before and it's not enough
So nobody say it

Don't even say it
I've got my eyes shut
Won't look, oh
No, I'm not in love

Could it be I'm suffering
Because I'll never give in?
I'm falling love
Tell me I don't seem myself good enough for something else

Just don't say I'm falling in love
Falling in love
Just don't say I'm falling in love
Oh, yeah
Falling love ooh
Oh, oh, don't say that I'm falling in love, don't say that, oh
Just don't say that I'm falling in love, yeah
Just don't say that I'm falling in love
Don't say but in the answer
'Cause I'll never give in
Oh
Falling in love
Yeah
Oh

Call Me When You Get This Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

How does it feel being in these arms?
What's it really like to be loved?
I've been alone now, how long?
Have you ever loved the way that i have?
And i have often wondered who,
Who could love you the way i do?
Now i just want you to know, how i'm touched deep in my soul just being with you.
And i need you more each day.
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this.
I've got all this poetry now i didn't know then.
I kept inside. guess i had never seen anything beautiful
Till i first saw you asleep at night.
And i have often wondered who,
Who could love you the way i do?
Now i just want you to know,
How i'm touched deep in my soul
Just being with you.
And i need you more each day.
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this.
I just wanted to know what it was like, what's it really like to be loved?
These little volcanoes came as a surprise to me.
I never thought i could be this way.
And i have been cautious and i've tried to keep to myself, but who could love you the way i do?
Now i just want you to know, how i'm touched deep in my soul.
Just being with you.
So much more each day,
Baby, if you're still awake,
Call me when you get this

Choux Pastry Heart Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

I was just waiting for your phone call
When they came along to say
That a rose done chased you clear away

You had said I was gamine
But we didn't mean the same thing i think
Broke my choux pastry heart
Guess life's, no picture post card

One for sorrow
Two for joy

Sometimes you win or sometimes you lose
I don't wanna lose you
Don't even own you
I just wanna stay right here
Until never dawns yeah

Oooooh
Mmmmmm

I was just waiting for your answer (Still)
You made your own apologies
I cried so much I had to leave

Three for a girl
Four for a boy

Sometimes you win or sometimes you lose
I don't wanna lose you
Don't even own you
I just wanna stay right here
Until never dawns yeah

Oooooh
Oooooh

Breathless Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

Seems like everyone else has a love just for them,
I don't mind, we have such a good time,
My best friend, but sometimes, well,
I wish we could be more than friends,
Tell me do you know?
Tell me do you know?
Oh..

I get so breathless, when you call my name,
I've often wondered, do you feel the same?
There's a chemistry, energy, a synchronicity
When we're all alone,
So don't tell me
You can't see
What I'm thinking of.

I can understand that you don't want to cross the line,
And you know i can't promise you things,
Will turn out fine,
But i have to be honest, I want you to be mine
Tell me do you know?
Tell me do you know?
Oh...

I get so breathless, when you call my name,
I've often wondered, do you feel the same?
There's a chemistry, energy, a synchronicity
When we're all alone,
So don't tell me
You can't see
Oh!

'Cause I've tried to do this right in your own time
I've been telling with my eyes, my heart's on fire,
Why don't you realise?
Tell me do you know?
Tell me do you know?
I get so breathless...

I'd Like To Lyrics – Corinne Bailey Rae

Lying here with you reminds me of those days
Me and Candice waking up to a heat wave
Mother's in the garden inviting everyone
Ooh, we cut up our old jeans and go outside
Neighbour's always smiling with the baby on her knee
Rhea sat on the front step getting her hair combed out and greased
Music, the bass boomin' from the car parked in the street
Got that new song on repeat, oh oh

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I just like to make you see that
I desire the simple things

Growing up we didn't have a lot of money
Used to spend my summer having parties on the drive
Plastic cups for rum and punch, eating chicken that's hot and sweet
All the women discussing what love is like, ooh you know the way I mean
And I'm just sitting watching hoping the boys will call for me
Got that new song on repeat, oh oh

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just trying to make you see that
I desire the simple things

Maybe then now and then I would want somebody
Delicate, intimate, used to dream of someone to love
Now you come and you arrive by me
I know I'm in love

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint this picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I just like to make you see that
I desire the simple things
I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I just like to make you see that
I desire the simple things

Butterfly lyrics - corinne bailey rae

In my mother's house
There's a photograph
Of a day gone past
Always makes me laugh
There's a little girl
Wary of the world
She got much to learn
Get her fingers burned
An affinity
Between you and me
Cause we're family
Said that I'd be fine
Give me all your time
And I left your side
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the red rose sun
Shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Would you live your life
Like a butterfly

In my mother's house
There was happiness
I wrapped my myself in it
Was my chrysalis
As my life unfolds
See a pattern through
Of you protecting me
And I protecting you
What was that you'd say
Make your own mistakes
And when you're grown
Make sure that you remain the same
Now I realise
What was on your mind
When I left your side
Like a butter fly

Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the red rose sun
Shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Give me life
Like a butterfly

Shower me with your love
All of everyday
You make the red rose sun
Shine on me
Lift me up so high
Watch me fly away
Give me life
Like a butterfly

Seasons Change lyrics - corinne bailey rae

Oh oh oh...

Maybe you've been pouring everything into this your mistake of this attends to agony, you can't predict this when it comes to it,
You can't hide from me, but don't you surrender anything..
Don't you know that, that patience is a virtue (yes it is), and life is a waiting game...don't you know that, peace must be nurtured

And all the money in the world can buy you nothing... (i tell you that)
All these things happen, all these things happen for a reason, don't you go on and throw it all away ...when the seasons change (you gonna change)...

Oh oh...

Hurts me to see you feel this way but it won't be always, don't you know everything got to change,oh... feels like all your hope is gone, you can't carry on, but there's nothing oh, you don't have to pretend with me, don't you know that, that patience is a virtue, (yes it is), and life is a waiting game, don't you know that, peace must be nurtured...

All the money in the world can buy you nothing, (let me tell you that)...
All these things happen, all these I've done for a reason...don't you go on throw it all away , when the seasons change
Oh oh oh...

Is This Love lyrics - corinne bailey rae

I'm feelin'....
I wanna love you, I want to love and treat you right;
I wanna love you every day and every night:
We'll be together, with a roof over our heads;
To share the shelter in a single bed;
Is this love - is this love - is this love -
Is this love that I'm feelin'?
Is this love - is this love - is this love -
Is this love that I'm feelin'? Wo-o-o-oah!
I wanna know - wanna know - wanna know now!
I wanna know - wanna know - wanna know now!

I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I - I'm willing and able,
So I lay my cards on your table!
I wanna love you - I wanna love, love and treat - love and treat you right;
I wanna love you every day and every night:
We'll be together, with a roof over our heads;
We'll share the shelter, of my single bed;
We'll share the same room, yeah! - for Jah provide the bread.

Is this love - is this love - is this love -
Is this love that I'm feelin'?
Is this love - is this love - is this love -
Is this love that I'm feelin'? Wo-o-o-oh!
Is this love - is this love - is this love -
Is this love that I'm feelin'?
Tell me, if its love, love, love that I'm feelin'?
I wanna love you - I wanna love, love and treat - love and treat you right;
Is this love - is this love - is this love -
Is this love that I'm feelin'?
Someone tell me if its love, love ...
