John Newman Fire In Me

(Never gonna let it go, I’m)

(Never gonna let it go, I’m)

I’m starting with my intuition

I’m starting with my strengths

I’m getting back my old ambitions

Returning once again

My knuckles are so red and raw

From breaking through these walls

I’m sick of all the others talk

And the laughter of my fall

I was a spark in the night

But you drown me out

So I’ll take the walls, I’m inside

And I’ll burn them down

Cause I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I’ve dealt with all my evils

And I ain’t dealing with them twice

They’ll never be a sequel

And the curtain will never rise

Although my body has been aching

I held on to the ropes, oh no

I’d never left the ring and

And I won’t be letting go

‘Cause I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I was a spark in the night

But you drown me out

So I’ll take the walls, I’m inside

And I’ll burn them down

I was a spark in the night

But you drown me out

So I’ll take the walls, I’m inside

And I’ll burn them down

‘Cause I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I never wanna let it go

I never wanna let it go

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

I-I-I-I still got a fire in me

John Newman Goodnight Goodbye

[Verse:]

As soon as the doors slammed

The silence that fell

Was all that you left me

With a story to tell

‘Bout cigarettes and ash-trays

That I smoked with you

[Pre-chorus:]

I tried to find the truth

Lying there with you

I never listen, I never listen

All the things you said

I’ll never hear again

I should’ve listened more

[Chorus:]

Don’t say goodnight

Know you really meant goodbye

We just watched it burn

Know we could’ve kept love alive

I’d still be loving you

I’d still be loving you

[Verse:]

Your make-up on my sheets

Your clothes on the floor

The photos that I’ll keep

How we were before

Before I took you for granted

Before the memories were torn

[Pre-chorus:]

I tried to find the truth

Lying there with you

I never listen, I never listen

And all the things you said

I’ll never hear again

I should’ve listened

[Chorus:]

Don’t say goodnight

Know you really meant goodbye

We just watched it burn

Know we could’ve kept love alive

I’d still be loving you

I’d still be loving you

[Bridge:]

It’s time to confess of being at my best

But this time I won’t get it wrong

It’s time to confess of being at my best

But this time I won’t lead you wrong

[Chorus:]

Don’t say goodnight

Know you really meant goodbye

We just watched it burn

Know we could’ve kept love alive

I’d still be loving you

I’d still be loving you

John Newman Save The Last Dance

My mother told me, “be strong my child

‘Cause life will try hurt you

And life will try throwing you down”

My brother stood by me through thick and thin

But there’s one thing I need to know

Before I get to the end

Oh won’t you save the last dance for me?

It’s all that I need, it’s all that I need

Oh won’t you save your last breath for me?

So I can die happy knowing you’re with me

And the world makes me sleep

I need you, my Juliet, through all of this pain

I got this problem growing

Got something that’s eating my brain

Oh I need you my lover to be by my side

So I can let go easy

Let go of my soul and my mind

Oh won’t you save the last dance for me?

It’s all that I need, it’s all that I need

Oh won’t you save your last breath for me?

So I can die happy knowing you’re with me

And the world makes me sleep

John Newman Down The Line

[Verse:]

I’ve been battered, I’ve been bruised

And though I know it’s no excuse

For you I know I’m right

And in another place, in another time

I’ll buy you flowers, I’d build a home

Right now can’t pay the bills, I cannot go

Can’t give you anything you need

[Pre-Chorus:]

But maybe if you’ll meet me further down the line

‘Cause you’re the right person at the wrong time

[Chorus:]

I wanna run into the light

And leave the dark behind

I wanna break the chains of life

With you right by my side

So oh

You gotta meet me down the line

So oh

You gotta meet me down the line

[Verse:]

I’m easily dazed, I’m so confused

It’s hurting me and I’m hurting you

Despite everything you do

[Pre-Chorus:]

You’re gonna have to meet me further down the line

‘Cause you’re the right person at the wrong time

[Chorus:]

I wanna run into the light

And leave the dark behind

I wanna break the chains of life

With you right by my side

So oh

You gotta meet me down the line

So oh

You gotta meet me down the line

[Bridge:]

You’ve been trying hard

To make me feel a little better

It’s gonna take a while

To make me feel a little better

And I’ll try, try, try, try a little harder uh yea

And I swear, swear, swear I’m gonna lift you further

[Chorus:]

I wanna run into the light

And leave the dark behind

I wanna break the chains of life

With you right by my side

So oh

You gotta meet me down the line

So oh

You gotta meet me down the line

So oh

You gotta meet me down the line

I’m easily dazed, I’m so confused

It’s hurting me and I’m hurting you

15, I had known to be

So confused, broken easily

Now I could not be half the man without you next to me

18, you made me see

You lit the lights I’ve been dampening

Now I could not be half the man without you next to me

My passion was abused,

My words were never used

But now I hope that you can see

For what you have shown me and what you do

It’s all for you, it’s all for you

For what you have made me, look how I grew

John Newman Olé

Lowkey, you won’t tell none of your friends about me

You won’t tell them I occupy your dreams and your thoughts

Look at what we have started

I feel so good when I leave your apartment

I know, there’s no telling how far you can go

And you won’t want to hear about my love and my lust

Babe that I have been feeling

I kiss you once, then I stare at the ceiling

Olé, you bring too much sunlight to my day

And only you can chase the pain away

You bring too much sunlight to my day, my day

My heart speaks

I ain’t seen you or been with you for weeks

But I see online that you’ve begun to be

A good girl and take trips with your boyfriend

Being attentive, continue to pretend

But no, cause there’s no telling how far you can go

You’ve hidden my name on your phone so you can

Call me to tell me you’ve been going through hell

Left him alone and you booked in a hotel

Olé, you bring too much sunlight to my day

And only you can chase the pain away

You bring too much sunlight to my day, my day

I can’t control myself around you

I can’t control myself around you

I can’t control myself around you

I can’t control myself around you

I can’t control myself around you

And I’m singing…

Olé, you bring too much sunlight to my day

And only you can chase the pain away

You bring too much sunlight to my day, my day

Olé, you bring too much sunlight to my day

And only you can chase the pain away

You bring too much sunlight to my day, my day

John Newman Lights Down

Oh baby

Is it right, is it right, is it all good?

So you see lately

Given up, given up, given up on love

And you, you…

You can try and change my ways

But I’m so scared baby

In the morning I will run again

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

No, no

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

Oh yeah!

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

I can’t keep playing

The games I’m playing every night

Guess I’m just hiding

The broken man I am inside

But you, you…

You could help me change my ways

But I’m so scared baby

In the morning I will run again

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

Oh yeah!

I can feel it with the lights down baby

With the lights down baby, no, no

Letting out, letting out the pain that we hide within

(No, we ain’t doing nothing wrong)

Letting out, letting out the pain that we hide within

(C’mon C’mon)

I can feel it with the lights down baby, with the lights down baby, no, no

I can feel it with the lights down baby, with the lights down baby, no, no

I can feel it with the lights down baby, with the lights down baby, no, no
