Bonobo - The Keeper Lyrics




I know she said,
That I don't need her,
cause everytime I call,
she's sitting sweeter,

I know she said,
to get near her,
but I'm feeling cold,
and I must leave her.

Sat down here with my head hung down
and I just seem to find
a bit of peace,
a bit of love,
a bit of something left behind.

Sat down here best intentions,
nothing said, nothing lied,
a bit of peace,
a bit of love,
a bit of something left inside.

And my heart's content,
I say that to please her,
happiness is on her face,
it's the mind that greets her,
only my disgrace,
to admit I need her,
but we all fall from grace,
dust me down and keep her.

Sat down here with my head hung down
and I just seem to find
a bit of peace,
a bit love,
a bit of something left behind.

Sat down here best intentions,
nothing said, nothing lied,
a bit of peace,
a bit of love,
a bit of something left inside.

We shall go on, in this way.
Cause we can't go on living this way.
Cause we can't go on living this way.
(We can't go on...)
(Because we can't go on living this way...)

    trip hop will always live on for those who know real music

    Hail to the Queen Andreya❤️

    Releasing....

  13. ThoughtBundle

    I saw Bonobo and Andreya perform this live at the Chicago House of Blues on 4/20 (I forget what year...). And it was an AMAZING performance and an amazing show! That performance stands out to me quite a bit which is strange because, ostensibly, I should not be able to remember any of it at all. Love the song, love the album, love the artists, you make life so much better! Thanks for the great tunes :)

  14. Titan Slick

    A really wonderful video. First of all I love the song, the easy living-room feel of it, like a big sofa and a Persian rug. Second, I love the tone of it. EASY, with a quiet back down minor-key smoky tone. Third, I love the circling: it all looks so informal but it is masterfully done. Bravo.

  15. NIKOS NTEMOS

    This is lofty rnb dudes.. So chill

  16. denise koodray

    The best ever! Awesome

  17. Tweety Boyd

    Everyone that disliked this deserves to get their lights cut off !!

  18. Mr. Roshi

    Started listening to this in middle school now I'm in college... Wow time flies...

  19. Nikos 6ares

    Did anyone else notice that the video clip begins very dark and when she realised that they cant go on it gets really bright? That is art! A great video clip for a great song

  20. Brian Borden

    Gorgeous!

  21. Leandro Cavalcante

    0.75x amazing

  22. Anna Smith

    Noticed a lot of binaurally beats going on in YouTube videos lately... With the headphones on I can't help but notice .

  23. stefano bababua

    you and andreya are the perfect match and you taught me how to love more

  24. Marie Christyne

    And my heart's content
    I say that to please her
    Happiness is on her face
    It's not mine that greets her.
    Only my disgrace to admit I need her
    But we all fall from grace,
    Dust me down and keep her.

  25. S/O/L/A/R/I/S

    A master work.

  26. K O V Λ

    perfect at speed 1:25 ..

  27. bennogob

    No word.Just listen to this masterpiece.

  28. Zaira Irina

    I was actually listening to Andreya's songs and then, all of a sudden, Bonobo appeared. ❤

  29. John Henry

    published 2009! i cant believe it still resonates with me today.
    still standing by Bonobo, Andreya Triana and Ninja Tune in 2017.
    beautiful music by beautiful people for beautiful people.

    The0nionKnight

    Would you happen to know where to find the acapella version of this song? Its just her singing and the guitar. I've heard it before but cant find it online.

    I know she said
    That I don't need her
    Cause every time I call
    She's sitting sweeter

    And I know she said
    To get near her
    But I'm feeling cold
    And I must leave her
    [Chorus 1]
    Sat down here with my head hung down
    And I just seem to find
    A bit of peace
    A bit of love
    A bit of something left behind

    Sat down here, best intentions
    Nothing said, nothing lied
    A bit of peace
    A bit of love
    A bit of something left inside

    And my heart's content
    I say that to please her
    Happiness is on her face
    It's not mine that greets her

    Only my disgrace
    To admit I need her
    But we all fall from grace
    Dust me down and keep her

    Sat down here with my head hung down
    And I just seem to find
    A bit of peace
    A bit love
    A bit of something left behind

    Sat down here, best intentions
    Nothing said, nothing lied
    A bit of peace
    A bit of love
    A bit of something left inside

    We can't go on, we can't go on
    We can't go on, we can't go on
    We can't go on, we can't go on
    We can't go on, we can't

    We can't, we can't (Can't go on, no, no)
    We can't, we can't (Can't go on, no, no)

    We shall go on in this embrace
    Cause we can't go on living this way
    We'll be like one (...)
    Cause we can't go on living this way

    We can't go on, we can't go on
    We can't go on, we can't go on

    modolief

    Have you noticed though, instead of the lyric
    "A bit of peace"
    it sounds like she's saying
    "A bitter peach"
    ... so melancholy

    Black Sands was a straight 10/10. Bonobo and Andreya Triana go together like PB&J. Unfortunately his newer stuff hasn't been quite as good.. But god damn this album was perfect.
