Craving – James Bay

Walking through the traffic on a Monday
In the town I grew up
Shelter from the rain in every doorway
It’s dark and everyone’s numb
Kids are making faces in the bus lane
But nobody looks up
Everyone’s life the same as yesterday
Just like the ticking of clocks

And I’m craving, craving, craving something I can feel
Where do I go, what do I need, is it ecstasy or is it fear?
Am I on my own, am I even close
‘Coz I’m craving, still craving something I can feel

Never thought the night could get so lonely
’til she called me up
Never thought these streets could’ve out-grown me
I guess it wasn’t enough
So I put my faith in everyone around me
Then she sold all my stuff
Sheer and wild abandon that’s all I need
And someone I can trust

‘Coz I’m craving, craving, craving something I can feel
Where do I go, what do I need, is it ecstasy or is it fear?
Am I on my own, am I even close
‘Coz I’m craving, still craving something I can feel

Take me far from streets and roads
Lead me out in the night
Don’t show me the way back home
‘Coz I

Yes I’m craving, craving, craving something I can feel
Where do I go, what do I need, is it ecstasy or is it fear?
Am I on my own, am I even close
‘Coz I’m craving, still craving something I can feel

Craving
Craving something I can feel…

Hymn for the Weekend (Coldplay Cover) – James Bay

Drink from me, drink from me
Then we’ll shoot across the sky
Symphony
Then we’ll shoot across the sky
We’re on a…
Drink from me, drink from me
Then we’ll shoot across the sky
Symphony
(So high, so high)
Then we’ll shoot across the sky

Oh, Angel sent from up above
You know you make my world light up
When I was down, when I was hurt
You came to lift me up
Life is a drink, and love’s a drug
Oh now I think I must be miles up
When I was a river, dried up
You came to rain a flood

And said drink from me, drink from me
When I was so thirsty
Pour on a symphony
Now I just can’t get enough
Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
Soaring in symphony
When I’m low, low, low, low

I oh, I oh
Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
I oh, I oh, I oh
Now I’m feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
Woo!

Oh, Angel sent from up above
I feel it coursing through my blood
Life is a drink, your love’s about
To make the stars come out

Put your wings on me, wings on me
When I was so heavy
Soaring in symphony
When I’m low, low, low, low

Got me feeling drunk and high
So high, so high
I’m feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

So high, so high
I’m feeling drunk and high
So high, so high

Then we’ll shoot across the sky
Then we’ll shoot across the…
Then we’ll shoot across the sky
Then we’ll shoot across the…
Then we’ll shoot across the sky
Then we’ll shoot across the…
Then we’ll shoot across the sky
Then we’ll shoot across the…

Proud Mary (Creedence Clearwater Revival Cover) – James Bay

Left a good job in the city,
Workin’ for the man ev’ry night and day,
And I never lost one minute of sleepin’,
Worryin’ ’bout the way things might have been.

[Chorus:]
Big wheel keep on turnin’,
Proud Mary keep on burnin’,
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river.

Cleaned a lot of plates in Memphis,
Pumped a lot of pain down in New Orleans,
But I never saw the good side of the city,
‘Til I hitched a ride on a river boat queen.

[Chorus]

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river.

If you come down to the river,
Bet you gonna find some people who live.
You don’t have to worry ’cause you have no money,
People on the river are happy to give.

[Chorus]

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river.
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river.
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river.

When We Were on Fire – James Bay

Drifting apart, getting harder to hold you
Days getting dark and the nights are growing cold
Are we burning out?
Swept out of sight, rolling up on an ocean
Let’s cut all the ropes and get lost in the moment
If our hearts are alive, maybe then they might
Send us back to the sun

Now I know, I know
That we’re losing light, our love is dying
Out cold on the floor
Like a fallen star that shines no more
Take, take me back to where it was before
When we were on fire, fire

Head down, heading underground feeling wasted
Cold to the bone, so alone I can taste it
Let’s light it up
Streets are alive now, and everything’s bracing
You’re on my mind, running in my veins fueling the flame
Let’s start it again

And I know, I know
That we’re losing light, our love is dying
Out cold on the floor
Like a fallen star that shines no more
Take, take me back to where it was before
When we were on fire, fire
We were on fire, fire

Oh, oh, whoa, oh, whoa-oh-oh, now don’t tell me no
That we’re burning down
Oh, oh, whoa, oh, whoa-oh-oh, now don’t tell me no
That we’re burning now

I know, I know we’re losing light and our love is dying
Take me, take me home
Back to where we was before when we were on fire, fire
And I know, I know that we’re losing light, our love is dying
Out cold on the floor like a fallen star that shines no more
Take, take me back to where it was before when we were on fire, fire
When we were on fire, fire.
