Songs of the week

  1. Bring me the night by Sam Tsui

Measuring days in the spaces between our goodbyes
Learning to wait through the endless parade
Of our same old see-you-next-time’s
But when I close my eyes the miles melt away
Like you’re here in my arms at the end of the day

So bring me the night, send out the stars
‘Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far
Darken the sky and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night
Bring me the night
That brings me to you
You

Swear I don’t know if the days are as slow as they seem
Wondering when you’ll be with me again and this
Finally can be more than just a dream
But when I close my eyes I want only to stay
Where the farthest you are is a heartbeat away

So bring me the night, send out the stars
‘Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far
Darken the sky and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night
Bring me the night
That brings me to you

And it’s enough knowing you…
(I know that you’re) are calling to me
While you’re dreaming beneath the same moon
All it takes is imagining you
So that I can get through
One more long and lonely day

So bring me the night, tell me it’s near
Give me the chance to pretend that you’re here
Darken the sky and light up the moon
Please bring it soon, bring it soon

So bring me the night, send out the stars
‘Cause when I’m dreaming we don’t seem so far (we don’t seem so far)
Darken the sky and light up the moon
So that somehow you’ll be here with me soon
Bring me the night,
Bring me the night,
Bring me the night,
Bring me the night
That brings me to you

 

2. Need you now by Lady Antebellum

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor.
Reaching for the phone ’cause I can’t fight it anymore.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t call but I’ve lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Another shot of whiskey, can’t stop looking at the door.
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before.

And I wonder if I ever cross your mind?
For me it happens all the time.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m a little drunk and I need you now.
Said I wouldn’t call but I’ve lost all control and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now.

Oh, whoa
Guess I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all.
It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now.
And I said I wouldn’t call but I’m a little drunk and I need you now.
And I don’t know how I can do without.
I just need you now
I just need you now.
Oh, baby, I need you now.

 

 

3. Officially Missing  You by Jayesslee (Cover by Tamia)

All I hear is raindrops
Falling on the rooftop
Oh baby tell me why’d you have to go
Cause this pain I feel
It wont go away
And today
I’m officially missing you
I thought that from this heartache
I could escape
But I fronted long enough to know
There ain’t no way
And today
I’m officially missing you
Oh can’t nobody do it like you
Said every little thing you do
Hey baby say it stays on my mind
And I, I’m officially
All I do is lay around
Two ears full of tears
From looking at your face on the wall
Just a week ago you were my baby
Now I don’t even know you at all
I don’t know you at all
Well, I wish that you would call me right now
So that I could get through to you somehow
But I guess it’s safe to say baby safe to say
That I’m officially missing you
Well, I thought I could just get over you baby
But I see that’s something I just can’t do
From the way you would hold me
To the sweet things you told me
I just can’t find a way
To let go of youIt’s official
You know that I’m missing you
Yeah yes
All I hear is raindrops
And I’m officially missing you
4. Bubbly by Colbie Caillat

Will you count me in?

I’ve been awake for a while now
You’ve got me feelin’ like a child now
‘Cause every time I see your bubbly face
I get the tingles in a silly place

It starts in my toes
And I crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while now
Just take your time
Wherever you go

The rain is falling on my window pane
But we are hiding in a safer place
Under covers staying dry and warm
[Another version of the song says: “Under covers staying safe and warm”]
You give me feelings that I adore

They start in my toes
Make me crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while
now just take your time
Wherever you go

But what am I gonna say:
When you make me feel this way
I just mmmmm

And it starts in my toes
Makes me crinkle my nose
Wherever it goes
I always know
That you make me smile
Please stay for a while
Now just take your time
Wherever you go

Dada dumdudum dumdadadadadum
Ohbodododododododum mmm mmm

I’ve been asleep for a while now
You tuck me in just like a child now
‘Cause every time you hold me in your arms
I’m comfortable enough to feel your warmth

It starts in my soul
And I lose all control
When you kiss my nose
The feeling shows
‘Cause you make me smile,
Baby, just take your time
Now holdin’ me tight

Wherever, wherever, wherever you go
Wherever, wherever, wherever you go

Wherever you go
I always know
‘Cause you make me smile
Even just for a while

One thought on “Songs of the week

  1. Oh I love these songs.
    Bring me the night is painfully sweet because that is exactly how I feel when I think of the special one I met in LV. The words are so real to me. If only she knew.

    “Measuring days in the spaces between our goodbyes
    Learning to wait through the endless parade
    Of our same old see-you-next-time’s
    But when I close my eyes the miles melt away
    Like you’re here in my arms at the end of the day … “
