Bareilles, Sara - Love On The Rocks Lyrics




... I like it. Just check it out.

We met on a rainy evening in the summertime
Don't think I need to tell you more
I needed a raise I worked so hard for this love of mine
Still I got nothing to show for it

Here's a simplification
Of everything we're going through
You plus me is bad news
You're a lovely creation
I like to think that I am too
My friends said I look better without you.

Tongue tied and twisted,
Go on baby, go to my head.

Babe, baby believe me
If I stay it ain't gonna be easy
Okay, we'll do it your way
But this is the last time
You'll hear the beautiful sound
Of love coming down

Love on the rocks.

You love the chase but hate me for the runaround
We both just tired of the whole thing.
Wouldn't you tell me what you want you need you know you have to have
I just pretend I'm listening

Too tired this time
To deal with old suits you wear
Your ties that won't bind.

Babe, baby believe me
If I stay it ain't gonna be easy
Okay, we'll do it your way
But this is the last time
You'll hear the beautiful sound
Of love coming down.

Hot as hell, cold as ice,
Sip it slow 'cause it's so nice
Dulls my senses, drives my pain,
But I do it again

Burns a bit to the touch,
Dangerous if it's too much
If this bottle could talk
Love on the rocks

(Babe)
Love on the rocks
(If I stay)
(Okay, we'll do it your way)
Baby, baby, baby, baby believe me
You'll hear the beautiful sound
Of love coming down

  1. Jacqueline Burroughs

    Hey kids, shake it loose together
    The spotlight's hitting something
    That's been known to change the weather
    We'll kill the fatted calf tonight
    So stick around
    You're gonna hear electric music
    Solid walls of sound
    Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
    Uh but they're so spaced out, B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets
    Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful
    Oh Bennie she's really keen
    She's got electric boots a mohair suit
    You know I read it in a magazine
    B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets
    Hey kids, plug into the faithless
    Maybe they're blinded
    But Bennie makes them ageless
    We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
    Where we fight our parents out in the streets
    To find who's right and who's wrong
    Oh Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
    Oh but they're so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets
    Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful
    Oh Bennie she's really keen
    She's got electric boots a mohair suit
    You know I read it in a magazine, oh
    B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets
    Oh Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
    Oh but they're so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets
    Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful
    Oh Bennie she's really keen
    She's got electric boots a mohair suit
    You know I read it in a magazine, oh
    B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets
    Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
    Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
    Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
    Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
    Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie and the Jets
    Jets, Jets
    Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie, Bennie
    Bennie, Bennie and the Jets

  7. Aries 31

    Ive always been a huge fan of SB. She's just herself and of course a phenomenal singer, but at the same time, she's laid-back and funny. She reminds me of Kimbra, Jason Mraz, and Billy Joel( when he was younger) awesome!

  8. Elena Belacastre

    SOUNDS LIKE A NARCISSIST. RELATIONSHIP ON THE ROCKS!

  11. Le Anh Quoc

    One of the most perfect voice I've ever heard. So smooth and perfect in each and every notes.

  12. Dice Ice

    RIP Replay button

  13. Old Dirty Tattooed Warhorse

    i've clicked on this a half a dozen times hoping for a Neil Diamond cover and i always forget that's not what this is and that i've done it before... it's cool, though, i dig the jam, i stay every time... and her Benny cover is cool, not as cool as Biz Markie's, not as cool as her Yellow Brick Road Cover, but she's got a ton of style, she's smooth... one of the best vocalists of all times on all levels... hoping to see the show coming through my area soon, check out ticket prices, ppls, like $30/head to see her live... and she kills it live... you know this, you already just watched this video...

  14. Taylor Manes

    I thought she was going to sing Neil Diamond's song "Love On the Rocks"

  15. Juliet Fernandez

    I miss seeing you on TV and hearing your songs! <3 I hope you have a new upcoming album! I love you, Sara B.! Always a fan <3

  16. Fabio Ghezzi

  19. Derek Radcliffe

    I dated a Zimmerman. We were a grade below.

  20. Chloe Morrill

    But why did she say stressed out instead of spaced out?

  21. eezeyl

    This version always makes me happy!

  22. Natalie Gelman

    Beautiful Sara since I listen to you in 2007. I knew that you really were an artist This song love in the rocks is unique I love you. Greetings from México.

  32. Christopher Mark Uy

    Made rum on the rocks and thought of this Beautiful Song. Timeless. ❤️🇵🇭

  33. Dr. Richard D. Gaither, B.S., D.M.D.

    I think she is extremely good singing this song!

  34. Gloria Ann Perry

    a great talent, so underrated, listen to her music all the time

  35. Jerry Perry

    her vocal is so beautiful !

  36. Darin Eversaul

    Oh, fuck me!
    We are hearing a moment of grace and perfection.

  37. Beelove Canonicato

    I keep on thinking of this version. This is definitely one of my favorite live performances. God bless Sara <3 <3

  38. D. Jewel

    Awesome talent !

  39. Morgan LeBlanc

    I saw 153 people gave her or this saw thumbs down! how is that possible? I guess that makes 153 that has no musical taste.

  40. Lauren Stanley

    I love this song. It brings out feelings. I quit love on the rocks because it got dangerous but also very sad and I was losing myself in that relationship. But ya I still like to listen to this song...I'm honestly a little bit of a wild one but you don't need a relationship like that. Roller-coasters are awesome but relationships should not be one. But I really had to quit love on the rocks. I mean I am not saying I am not responsible for what someone else did to me, or that there wasn't times when the that relationship was good...but I did the the power to not pick him. It took me years to realize that.

  41. Zoe Mills

    I would pay money to see a full cover of Bennie and the Jets by Sara tbh

  42. sc1212able

    When god was raining talent, Sara must of been hold 5 gallon buckets, would love for her to do a collaboration with Haley Reinhart, especially do Benny and The Jets, Haley's cover on American Idol was fucking insane.

  43. PhillyJilly

  44. Julian Andres Gomez

    She is so unique, so real. She does really good music, is beautiful, is meaningful, is original. She is so talented. I really loved her laugh on the video. I laughed too. That laught was so sincere! Thanks for your music, I really admire you! God Bless you!

  45. Rich Hoback

    Two words Sarah...... Simply Amazing!!! Bravo!

  46. Dr. Richard D. Gaither, B.S., D.M.D.

    Sara Bareilles: LOVE ON THE ROCKS! Sara, this is the recording that made me first take note of your incredibly exceptional talents in both writing and singing Thank you. The only disappointment is the incredible neglect for which so many 'Homo sapiens' are worthlessly not making their voices heard in disseminating their approval of the wonderful feeling always magicly flow into our deepest parts of our Spirits' and thus, making life incredibly more meaningful than would be otherwise.

  47. Stuart Little

    Sometimes I wish more people knew about Sara, but sometimes it's like her voice and songs are my little secret that only we have the awesomeness to hear.

  48. rye berza

    she has good tone and vocal range, it's incredible!

  49. Danielle

    I just sit and wonder what it would be like to hear, collaborations from certain artists. Like, what would it be like if Alicia Keys and Sara Bareilles collaborated, dope!

  50. beargi

    Sending love from the Philippines. Love you Sara!

  51. Sūpāburasshu Ninja

  54. Safuan Ahmad

    love it, your voice rocks , my 📱 iphone barely do you justice.

  55. Eileen Okafor

  87. Michael Sliter

    what a wonderful arrangement.

  88. April V

    Lovely version. Need this feminine aspect right now in such a Man's world, so to speak. United through music, if not emotion during strange days of change. If one finds comfort in the solitude from sadness, deepest the healing from knowing another. Love! More unity less division and diversion. As you express. oo xx

  89. flytyme

    Sara, please marry me and we'll have extremely talented big-nosed children.

    Lyle Stavast

    you could name one, "Durante'" ;)

    One of the few artists out there who sounds exactly the same live as on the album. Love her!

  91. 091 *

    I LOVE THIS SO MUCH

  92. laura Silveria

    Has a great talent for modulating at the half step. Only certain artists can do that!

    My Songs

    "modulating at the half step" - can you explain that?

    faith c

    laura Silveria We just have an inherent tendency to go at full steps (1 step). For example, C to C# (or Db) is a half step. We're more predisposed to want to go from C to D - 1 step. Or at least with more ease. Modulating (key change) at a half step is moreover particularly harder especially to those with a heightened sensitivity with pitch. In retrospect, it's like modulating a couple cents!

    Sonamor

    I'm not knocking her, or your observation, but she is a vocalist and a pianist. One of the bread and butter excercises of singers is to be at a piano, sing through a musical fragment for a measure or two, and ascend/decend by half step after each repitition, until they hit their vocal range. I wouldnt doubt she's done this in her lessons and incorporates it into her own practice thousands of times.

    mark kolk

    I have no idea what any of what you just typed means..... but you sound super educated on the subject so I will believe you.

  93. laura Silveria

    Such a unique artist!

  94. gloiven andersson

    all reference and no point

  95. lisaHayes

    cada dia me gusta mas jijijijij

  96. Brockasuarus

    not a fan of sara bareilles's music.......... but, i would listen to her do covers til the end of time.

  97. Matthew 19:26

    I really hope that A. Sara tours next summer. B. I get to see her and 3 that she does more Elton John covers because they are a great pairing & I can't wait to hear her take on more of his songs!

    Sylvia Martinez

    her duet with him singing Gravity is TO DIE FOR

  98. Bela Almeida

    That ending though...
