Arthur, James - Faded Lyrics




I'm faded, I'm faded
I'm not sure if I can make it, oh
But don't you cry for me
Honey I'm not worth it
Honey I'm not worth it
Honey I'm not worth it
But don't you cry for me, me, me
Don't you cry for..

I'm skipping through the days to come home
A million conversations, autopilot, steer, flow
I'm on my one man mission, eyes down, take note
I've never liked you, stay away from me don't lock the bolt
This is the great escape from everything I've ever hated
From all this figuring this lifes shit that got me jaded
Faded all the time the doubting got me underrated
This is my mechanism, moving forward, isolated
Belated superficial gestures of a phony type
I come alive when I'm incarcerated late at night
I wish that I could leave this soul destruction every night
That I could regress in an able-bodied prototype
If that made sense I'd leave it here, I have no lesser business
I'm immaterial but I still got things on a wish list
This is desire, can't you hear it in my C+ English?
I'd love the finer things but thats not being realistic, ballistic
Everybody goes when I'm singing, I'm sick of singing pain
So I'm free, broken, winging
Coming out my heart purer than the way I'm living
Maybe I'll see you, or maybe I'll just give in

Yeah, it's just too much now that I'm all grown up
I've been dragged through the dirt, now I should be blowing up
Still I'm blowing, yeah I'm blowing
And still I don't know where the hell I should be going
So I guess it's just live like this til my mind goes snap
No love, no drug could ever fill this gap
Yeah I live for the high until it all floods back
Like the tears of the years that I can't get back

I'm faded, I'm faded
I'm not sure if I can make it, oh
But don't you cry for
Honey I'm not worth it
Honey I'm not worth it
Honey I'm not worth it
Don't you cry for me, me, oh

Oh, faded
Don't you cry for me
Don't you cry for me
Don't you cry for me

Arthur, James Faded Comments
  1. Dan Brown

    Came back because I love this song but F***K that intro and outro on the SBTV channel is such an earache, like just settle it down a bit. Sounds like somebody having a seizure on 5 instruments at the same time, awful. UGH

  2. ijhuss 26

    amor si ves esto, pues, te amo :3

  3. Chris Harris

    Always come back here 🐐

    2019. James, thank you for everything. Words just aren’t enough to explain what you mean to me. I love you x

  5. Journeywithjosh __

  8. Jamie Walcott

    Anything you feel, record it. I guarantee at least one person will listen. If not thousands more. Try it. Btw I've loved and couldn't forget you since your very first audition (which was shown to me).

  9. Christine Rouse

    I’ve never seen a music artist put so much of themselves into their work, but James Arthur absolutely does put every piece of himself into all he does. ❤️😍😘🥰

    He relates

  12. Gavin Aitken

    Can't stop watching James Arthurs own stuff, Love how he puts his songs together, the raps the pain the rawness.His voice is incredible and i really hope he starts doing more of this kinda stuff. Loved his performance of hometown glory on X Factor a few years back. Top artist!!!

  13. Tentacion tenta 1234

  14. Shawntell Hale

    I love that rap song I listened to it so many times. And I about to listen again.

  25. Jessy J

    This man James Arthur went by the name Corrie Russen, while with us and yes He was and still is my husband even though I live as widow most of the time and yes since people insist on the most rediculous questions: Yes He and I had a marriage bed and yes He was indeed my Husband. Any other stupid questions: ask God.

  26. Aly Ray

    Absolutely obsessed with this guy. I knew the first time I saw him on X factor audition he was hands down one of the best artist that had major potential. Not just his voice but his looks. I LOVE TO LISTEN TO EVERYTHING HE PICKS UP AND PLAYS!
