Seinabo Sey Hard Time

[Chorus:]

Hard time forgiving

Even harder forgetting

Before you do something

You might regret friend

Hard time forgiving

Even harder forgetting

Before you do something

You might regret friend

Took me for granted

But call it love if you will

I’m aware of this

I did let you in

Sink for you to swim

Dancing on the ledge

Tried to make you stay

I did let you win

Broke to what became

Became you & me

Try to mend it but

I can’t bend the truth

Bricks are caving in

Oh how sweet this sin

I left you the keys

You won’t let me in

[Chorus]

Left me on the floor

Now I’m at the shore

Here’s change you can keep

Sold yourself too cheap

Thought you got away

This here ends today

You thought hell was hard

Let me show you now

[Chorus]

This time I will be

Louder than my words

Walk with lessons that

Oh, that I have learnt

Show the scars I’ve earned

In the light of day

Shadows will be found

I will hunt them down

[Chorus]

Seinabo Sey Poetic

I’ll mark your every word

I’ll wear the smile you gave me

Somehow it seemed you saved me

And if I’m about to fall

May I go out like this

May I go out like this

And I’ve tried to make it more poetic

But it’s only easy if you let it

I swear that you will never regret it

I swear that you will never regret it

When all the chips are down

And you’re not the hottest thing around town

You’ll need a hand to safely

Walk you through the maze

We’ll be lost here all the same

Be lost here all the same

And I’ve tried to make it more poetic

But it’s only easy if you let it

I swear that you will never regret it

I swear that you will never regret it

I’ll lose my breath for you

And I don’t want it back

All that I have is yours

Run to the moon and back

So I can prove the fact

I’ll lose my breath for you

And I don’t want it back

All that I have is yours

Run to the moon and back

So I can prove the fact

So if you give me this one chance

I’ll show you how I see you

When memories decieve you

Right here is where I stand

I hope you understand

I hope you understand

And I’ve tried to make it more poetic

But it’s only easy if you let it

I swear that you will never regret it

I swear that you will never regret it

And I’ve tried to make it more poetic

But it’s only easy if you let it

I swear that you will never regret it

I swear that you will never regret it

Seinabo Sey Pretend

Someone just told me that there’s no tomorrow

And if that is true, I don’t know what to do

Guess then these troubles are out of my hands

Guess then I’m free to use them to clap and dance

Rember when we didn’t know what to be?

I can admit that was somewhat bittersweet

Guess then these troubles are out of my hands

Guess then I’m free to use them to clap and dance

All turned out as great as it could, knock on wood

Things are going just as they should, knock on wood

All turned out as great as it could, knock on wood

Things are going just as they should, knock on wood

Someone just told me to leave all my sorrow

If that is true, I don’t know who to be

Could be these troubles are part of the plan

Could be we need the bad just to take a chance

So I forgive what was taken from me

I will be free from the picture you paint you see

Tell them “these troubles are out of your hands”

Tell them “you’re free to use them to clap and dance”

All turned out as great as it could, knock on wood

Things are going just as they should, knock on wood

All turned out as great as it could, knock on wood

Things are going just as they should, knock on wood

So far, so good

So far, so good

So far, so good

So far, so good

So far, so good

So far, so good

So far, so good

So far, so good

Seinabo Sey Easy

Shoulder to shoulder

I know it could be easy, yeah

Now keep your head up, talk to me

I know it could be easy, yeah

What would the world be, if we let it be just fine

What would a smile be, if not a tear sometime

Sister, sister

I know it could be easy, yeah

Now keep your head up, talk to me

I know it could be easy, yeah

What would the world be, if we let it be just fine

What would a smile be, if not a tear sometime

I’d rather fail on own turf

And call it a lesson learned

I’d rather fail on my own turf

Than follow you and you burn

I’d rather fail on my own turf

And call it a lesson learned

I’d rather fail on my own turf

Than follow you and you burn

Shoulder to shoulder

I know it could be easy, yeah

Now keep your head up, talk to me

Than follow you and you burn

Seinabo Sey Pistols At Dawn

Hear the wind calling me to leave this place

Yet here we are standing ’round face to face

This burning sky witnessed the greatest of love

Now it waits patiently to draw from our blood

The time has come to show and prove or be one

With all you thought you knew, coming undone

It that you’re reaching or you wanting to run

Stand down or show down baby let’s get this done

[Chorus:]

You looking at me

Me looking at you

We could’ve have it all

A world of our own

I never thought we could be

Pistols at dawn

I was the emperor and you owned the son

Invincible, I can’t believe what we’ve done

Surely we must be more than love on the run

Dancing in darkness to the sound of a drum

Can’t help to wonder what you thought I would do

Lay down and play dead boy you know that ain’t true

This is me reaching and you wanting to run

Stand down or show down baby let’s get this done

[Chorus]

[Bridge x2:]

I’d rather die tonight

If I have to

What would you ever think that

I’d take a bullet for you

[Chorus]

Seinabo Sey Breathe

I love it here ’cause I don’t have to explain to them

Why I’m beautiful, ’cause I am beautiful

And back home they’re scared

Oh so scared of me

But i became scared of me

I become scared of me

The way you smile when you believe in it, in your future

It’s different, it’s different

The way you smile when you believe in it, in your future

It’s different, it’s different

Now we moving forward, ever backwards

Never forward, ever backwards, never

And when the going gets rough and life gets tough

Don’t forget to breathe

I love it here ’cause I don’t have to explain to them

Why I’m valuable, that I’m magical

And back home they tear, tear my soul apart

Love my broken heart, I don’t know where to start

The way you smile when you believe in it, in your future

It’s different, it’s different

Now we moving forward, ever backwards

Never forward, ever backwards, never

And when the going gets rough and life gets tough

Don’t forget to breathe

Surely I did not go through all of this for nothing

Yeah nothing’s such a beautiful word, eh see

Baby surely did not go through all of this here for nothing

Yeah nothing’s such a beautiful word

‘Cause nothing can be loved into something

Nothing can be loved into something

(To something, to something)

Nothing can be loved into something

(To something, to something)

Now we moving forward, ever backwards

Never forward, ever backwards, never

And when the going gets rough and life gets tough

Don’t forget to breathe

Seinabo Sey Younger

There’s a conclusion to my illusion

I assure you this

There’s no end to this confusion

if you let it wish you well

soul to sell

highest bidders, can’t you tell what you’re getting?

There is a light to all this darkness

I will tell you this

there’s redemption in you asking them just why it is

Some answers are better left unspoken when you know you ain’t getting any

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

You ain’t getting any

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Why we fight to get on loving I’ve been wondering

How your mind will leave you hanging your heart lingering

stay lost

then found by whoever stays around, forgetting

There is a way to be yourself, I assure you this

There’s a way to catch your dreams without falling asleep

You might as well get it while you can, babe

’cause you know you ain’t getting any

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

You ain’t getting any

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

There is a light to all this darkness if only we

fight against them telling us how we should be

I refuse to have you break me

when you know you ain’t getting any

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

You ain’t getting any

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

You ain’t getting any

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Younger, younger, younger

Are you?

Seinabo Sey Ruin

I escaped you right on time

Can’t be partner in this crime

Stars shot down the remnants of my dreams

Kiss like on a silver screen

Cotton fields and beauty queens

Nothing here was ever as it seems

Time has come to leave the line

I can’t sign your pledge this time

Madness bred across the land as we

Saw the devil hat of tricks

We have cloves and crucifix

He who stands for nothing, falls alone

You tighten the row

Watch the seasons grow

You have made it clear

Nothing for me here

Said to each his own

We all stand alone

I’m just a brick in your ruin of love

I’m just a brick in your ruin of love

I’m just a brick in your ruin of love

We have played these strings attached

Out of key, we didn’t last

Sunset in our never-ending sea

I held onto broken parts

Love is but a poisoned dart

Drenched in kerosene, I still believe

You tighten the row

Watch the seasons grow

You have made it clear

Nothing for me here

Said to each his own

We all stand alone

I’m just a brick in your ruin of love

I’m just a brick in your ruin of love

I’m just a brick in your ruin of love

There is nothing more I need to say

There is nothing more I need to say

I’ll forgive you, but it’s not that day

There is nothing more I need to say

There is nothing more I need to say

I’ll forgive you, but it’s not that day

Seinabo Sey Burial

Flowers cross the sea

Memories aren’t what they used to be

Something in the breeze

High and low, always incomplete

Fire burns my back

They stare, I don’t know how to react

Try smiling for them to see

That I’m happy, we’re free

I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me

Saying come down let it be

Grains of sand we’ll never be

Strong enough to make me leave

I hear you speak to me as you spoke to me

Saying come down let it be

Grains of sand we’ll never be

Strong enough to make me leave

Stone rise, curtain falls

I am sure that you’ve seen it all

Christ, you’re in for harmony

Clouds they turn for you call for me

Fire burns my back

I’m ashamed I ever thought you were mine

Try smiling for them to see

That I’m happy that we’re free

I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me

Saying come down let it be

Grains of sand we’ll never be

Strong enough to make me leave

I hear you speak to me as you spoke to me

Saying come down let it be

Grains of sand we’ll never be

Strong enough to make me leave

They speak of grace

They speak of a better place

They speak of kingdoms

Kingdoms and how they come

They speak of freedom

Freedom and marching drums

Freedom and marching drums

Freedom and marching drums

When I miss you I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me

Saying come down let it be

Grains of sand we’ll never be

Strong enough to make me leave

I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me

Saying come down let it be

Grains of sand we’ll never be

Strong enough to make me leave

I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me

Saying come down let it be

Grains of sand we’ll never be

Strong enough to make them leave

Strong enough to make them leave, me
