James Blake - Tell Them Lyrics




[Moses Sumney:]
In life, just be alone, though you're a wanderin' soul
And you got to move on from the squandered soil
When you get what you came here for
Will you leave in the dead of night?
In the heart is a wall of horrors
You're the undenied

Can't return the sacred time you steal
A fact betrays the way you feel
And the sight delays the right to heal
You decide to stay long

[James Blake & Moses Sumney:]
I didn't plan to stay long
I didn't plan to stay long (Stay long)
I didn't plan to stay long
I didn't plan to stay long (Stay long)
In the snake pit so long, I've got posters up (Stay long)
Been defending so long, I don't know how to stop

[James Blake:]
Heart, tell them what you came for
Heart, tell them what you came for
Heart, tell them what you've been daydreamin' about
What the evening's about to

[Moses Sumney:]
Can't return the sacred time you steal
A fact betrays the way you feel
And the sight delays the right to heal
You decide to stay long

[James Blake & Moses Sumney:]
I didn't plan to stay long
I didn't plan to stay long (Stay long)
I didn't plan to stay long
I didn't plan to stay long (Stay long)
In the snake pit so long, I've got posters up (Stay long)
I've been defending so long, I don't know how to stop
I'm so afraid

[James Blake:]
Tell them what you came for
Heart, tell them what you came for
Heart, tell them what you've been daydreamin' about
What the evening's about to

[James Blake & Moses Sumney:]
Aah...
Tell them what you came here for
Oh, oh, oh, stay long
Oh, oh, oh, stay long
Oh, oh, oh, stay long
Oh, oh, long

  1. whirlypop313

    Play it at .75x speed. I always prefer trap beats slowed down, lets you appreciate each and every noise and process it. And Moses Sumney slowed down sounds sooo much more haunting and beautiful

    In life, just belong, though you're a wanderin' soul
    And you got to move on from the squandered soil
    When you get what you came here for
    Will you leave in the dead of night?
    In the heart is a wall of horrors
    You're the undenied
    Can't return the sacred time you steal
    A fact betrays the way you feel
    And the sight delays the right to heal
    You decide to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    In the snake pit so long
    I've got posters up (stay long)
    Been defending so long
    I don't know how to stop
    Heart, tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you've been daydreamin' about
    What the evening's about to you
    Can't return the sacred time you steal
    A fact betrays the way you feel
    And the sight delays the right to heal
    You decide to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    I didn't plan to stay long
    I didn't plan to stay long (stay long)
    In the snake pit so long
    I've got posters up (stay long)
    I've been defending so long
    I don't know how to stop
    I'm so afraid
    Tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you came for
    Heart, tell them what you've been daydreamin' about
    What the evening's about to you
    Ah, ah
    Ah
    Ah, ah
    Tell them what you came here for (ah, ah)
    Oh, oh, oh, stay long
    Oh, oh, oh, stay long
    Oh, oh, oh, stay long
    Oh-oh-oh-oh, long
