Barcelona

Barcelona

I still long to hold her once more, oh,
My boots of leather,
From your [?]
I gather you know, know,

Every time you have to go
Shone my eyes and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

A native man sang in a foreign tongue,
I still ache to know the song that he sung,
Barcelona

Every time you have to go
Shone my eyes and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

Every time you have to go
Shone my eyes and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona
Barcelona
Barcelona

Every time you have to go
I shone my mind and you know
I’ll be lying right by your side
In Barcelona

Leaving it up to you

* by george ezra

I walk past the buildings of an architect’s un-imagination
Returning to the venue where we had that very first conversation
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in my mind

And I arrived there early and as always you swanned in much later
As if nothing had ever changed, you nod at me and order your double mixer
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in my mind

Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving It Up To You
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up
Leaving It Up To You

And I’ve been told your new playmate’s successful and h’s handsome and he’s charming
It’s a damn good job he isn’t here or I may have wind up harming your darling
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in my mind

Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You

We laughing and we joking like we always, always used to
Too rudely interrupted by your half-wit of a boyfriend who tries to call you
To see you again, to be your friend, to hold you in his mind

Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You
Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You Leaving it up, leaving it up, leaving it up Leaving It Up To You

Cassy O’

* by george ezra

Cassy’s got a new plan
Gotta get herself away
Well, I’d better act quick
Yeah, I’d better change my ways

Oh, maybe I’m wasting
Maybe I’m chasing time
Oh, come on, let’s face it
I’m only ever lost in mine

Well, I got my tracing paper
So that I could trace my clock
And the bastard face kept changing
And the hands, they wouldn’t stop

I was ripping out the battery
I received myself a shock
And to add insult to injury
I could still hear tick and tock

Cassy o’
Cassy o’
Please don’t leave
Cassy o’
Cassy o’
Please don’t leave

Cassy’s got a new plan
Gotta give herself a break
And I try, I try, I try
For heaven’s sake

Well, I traveled to australia
And I traveled there by train
This something might sound strange to you
But on the way I gained a day

And I wrote to tell my family
And I wrote to tell my friends
I arrived home, it was lost again
And this torture never ends

Cassy o’
Cassy o’
Please don’t leave
Cassy o’
Cassy o’
Please

Inspector, fix me, my cassy o’s burnt out
We’re losing memories that I can’t replace
She says she’s tired of me running in circles
She says it’s time that we took a break

Cassy o’
Cassy o’
Please don’t leave
Cassy o’
Cassy o’
Please don’t leave
Cassy o’
Cassy o’
Please don’t leave

Die you hear the rain

* by George ezra

Did you hear the thunder?
Or the rain?
Means I’m coming home again
Means I’m coming home my friend

Did you steal my name?
Oh, you Jack of all trades
You’re the master of none
Oh, the race has begun
I was born a champion
I was born to jump and run

Did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try & run & hide
Tearing at the chain
Oh, Lucifer’s inside

Did your siblings tell you
I was wasting up your time
Oh, now you’re wasting mine
You put me back in line
And I’m counting every link
And I guess you think that’s fine

Did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try & run & hide
Tearing at the chain
Oh, Lucifer’s inside

Oh, did I send a shiver
Down your spine?
Well I do it all the time
It’s a little trick of mine
Did I make you shake your knees
Did I make him spill his wine
Lord, I’m spreading like disease
Lord, I’m all up in your mind
Oh, Lucifer’s inside
Lucifer’s inside

Did you hear the rain?
Oh, the rain?
You can try & run & hide
Tearing at the chain
Means I’m coming home again
Means I’m coming home my friend
Oh, Lucifer’s inside
Oh, Lucifer’s inside
Oh, Lucifer’s inside.
