Labi Siffre - My Song Lyrics




This is my song
And no one can take it away
It's been so long, but now you're here,
Here to stay
And I wonder if you know what it means
To find your dreams come true

This is my song
And no one can make it a lie
It's been so long since someone
Could make me cry
And I wonder if you know what it means
To laugh as tears go by

I may not always sing in tune
And sometimes you don't hear me
But you don't have to be near me
To know that I'm singing

This is my song
And nothing can make it die
It's been so long and it's stronger
I know why
And I wonder if you really, really know
That as long as I live I will sing my song for you

It's been so long, but now you're here
Here to stay
And I wonder if you know what it means

  18. Jackson Hart

    I wonder if you know what it's like to laugh while tears go by.

  19. Sonwabile Antonie

    Unlike current producers in 2018 and 2019, at least Kanye took a sample and made it his own, made it sound original or better. These days, it's not like that. And yes Im referring to Chris Brown jacking Shanice's "I Love Your Smile" through and through

  20. Lloyd Doran

    Thanks Yeezy

  21. alex rowan

    When you're probably one of the few that also recognise the sample from Drokz & Day-mar - Our Song xD

  22. Xavier Williams

    Kanye brought me here 12 years ago and turned me into a labi siffre fan. This song is sad inspirational happy joyful melancholy all at the sametime. Play this at my funeral.

  23. Justin Fahey

    Acknowledge the genius. Not the cheap teef. Regardless if it opens your minds, there was purity before it. Samples are important, but purity is just as it is. 👊🏽

  24. Poppy Kneegrow

  25. GFTVSKATE

    Who's here in 2019? Such a classic...

    Amazing what sampling can do

  29. Marck Gomez

    Beautiful

  30. Arathorn Dezeus

    thats fucked up his song and no one can take it away... we all know who tried to take it away

    Serdar K

    +Arathorn Dezeus (libertad) it's called sampling...he got paid for it

  31. Skylar Belser

    I've been waiting on this my whole life
    These dreams be waking me up at night

  32. Darryl Speed

    Breaking madden FTW

  33. alexander jones

    I'm here because of Breaking Madden lol awesome song.

  34. Sleepy

    its so frickin messed up that kanye west took this song when the title of this song is "my song" not "Kanye's song"

  35. Izrael Avila

    I hate the results that show up when you just type "My Song".

  36. jhomie252525

    I'm here from Breaking Madden.

  37. Ben Colling

    No one can take it away but Kanye west

  38. Madison Russell

    It doesn't matter why you're here; what matters is that you're here.

  39. Jus Blaze

    Yeezy taught us...

  40. Doctor

    Kanye completely disrespected this song.

    John 4 Reason

    No, his sample with the song "I Wonder" is about finding your dreams, similar to what this song is. So I don't really see how he "disrespected" it.

    Doctor

    @John 4 Reason Because this comment I found says it best:


    "This is my song, and no one can take it away"
    (except for Kanye)

    Freddy Main

    +iLuZiioNz Tutorials I think the song is a metaphor for his own life..I don't think he's talking literally.

  41. ThisIsFitz

    Hi willam Haynes

  42. Rudolf DeRosa

    Kayne changed dis song up

  43. Rudolf DeRosa

    This is my song

  44. Marjan Rosenberg

    No one can sing this song as good as Labi Siffre!!

  45. NIONSOMNIA

    This song is love. This song is life.

  46. NovaJazzBeatmaker

    Beautiful

  47. Jesse Anger

    RJD2 or you're sleeping - fuck Kanye.

  48. Joseph Ortiz

    Much respect to this man and kanye. The whole point of sampling is to bring older music into the new generation and show them good music but also it sounds really good. I just wanted say I wanted to hear that beat drop with kanye at 47 so bad haha

  49. Ronald Corbin

    Awesome Song

  50. Kewaan Felix Crossdale

    Kanye West - Wonder

  51. Stewart Roberts

    he is one guy whose music never became world wide popular, but it is so beautiful 

  52. Richard Chairington

    And I wonder...

  53. the black ninja

    " I may not always sing in tune"

  54. Alan Lechuga

    I was waiting for Kanye to just jump in smh

  55. Abyssinia Selassie

    Damn. This is what you call music ladies and gentlemen. Beautiful.

  56. sonson101

    Sounds like something you hear as an Outro to your favorite TV show.

    Richard Chairington

    yea in the 80's though lol

    Oscar Hernandez

    This would be perfect for Bojack Horseman

  57. Assil Kitoun

    "This is my song, and no one can take it away..."
    How ironic it is 😂

  58. Giovanni Giaco

    I love Kanye fuck y'all who hate on him if it wasn't for him so many people including myself wouldn't even know this song existed

    REDACT'D

    @Shaquille O'Neal I wont judge him for his music, but I will judge him for his behavior. But lets be real; if I was famous, people would probably hate me too. Can't win 'em all I guess. Just be careful with your "fuck y'all" d:

    alondra figueroa

    +InsanityWithHumor you are not a court judge or god so stfu

    REDACT'D

    @alondra figueroa I mean it's almost as if you didn't read my comment at all. Please try again.

    alondra figueroa

    @InsanityWithHumor i read it bitch

    REDACT'D

    Oh good. So you're just an unreasonable, simple minded ignoramus. Glad that was cleared up.

  59. Vinny Haddad

    Sleepy

    +Vince Haddad omg YOU'RE SO RIGHT

  60. N Jrd

    This is such a beautiful song..

    sardinius sardinii

    Actually I prefer this....

    misteranthrope

    absolutely

  61. Porsha Jones

    I'm now in love with this song because of Kanye because I love "I Wonder" lol.

  62. L Lawster

    i consider this my song too. yeeeuppppp

  63. jon roberts

    his song child of the 70's who is Kayne?

  64. leah

    Kanye is an utter genius when it comes to sampling. This, Stronger, Diamonds from Sierra Leone, Otis and so many more are right near the top of my favourite songs - and kanye has also allowed me to discover and appreciate the originals. Beautiful.

    Eon Maravillas

    @Xavier Dominguez I heard Devo Springsteen say in a video that Kanye gave him a few days to turn Shirley Bassey's sample into a dope beat, and he ended up giving it to kanye. maybe kanye edited the instrumental but Devo did the overall beat

    TheKevlar4

    @The Illuminati You gotta mention Power in there. That King Crimson sample was mind blowing stuff.

    leah

    @TheKevlar4 While the sampling and production were amazing, I don't like the angrier rap style he uses there (doesn't make it any less of a musical masterpiece)

    Florence P

    Kanye introduced me to Gil Scott Heron Home is Where the Hatred Is...from Kanye's song My Way Home. Pure poetry...

    Kaizer.Beatz

    @Xavi Dominguez Kanye co-produced Diamonds but the decision to sample Shirley Bassey all originated from Devo Springsteen (Ye's cousin).

  65. defunct hh

    holy shit im so used to Yeezy that at 0:47 i half expected the bass to kick in...

  66. Jonny Acid

    Kanye West brought me here.

  67. boruvka4

    I have heard this song the first time a couple of months ago, because i LOVE Labi´s "I Got The..." from the (also beloved) Sampled collection, for many years. So I finally started to do a research, that song is so good. With My song, It´s the first time i´ve listened to any Kanye´s "songs", i was curious. Labi´s version is like a natural silk. Kanye´s version is like a machine gun shooting to concrete. Typical for these times. One giant peacock showing off its feathers, while there is the real beast under the surface, quietly waiting. I take the beast, anytime.

  68. Rita Martinez

    Bae showed me this song and I love it ❤️

    Ricky Fernandes

    Rita Martinez ❤️

  69. Parigos Ziemprod

    Stop hating on kanye if he didnt sample this song wewill probably never heard about this crazy song

    D R

    a few other people ive heard sample him, rjd2s song "making days longer" is one i remember 

  70. 11ten9six

    "this is my song and no one can take it away"....

    Caleb 33

    Kanye....

    Xertified

    Caleb 33 yup. a true musical genius

    abizit gill

    He didn’t take it away though, he made sure it’s here to stay

  71. Brendan Foster

    Thanks to Kanye, his song really never died. 

  72. Dr. Kyler

    0:46= exactly where kanye took over

  73. 朝日太郎

    so lovely.

  74. Adam Kaźmierczak

    How many BPM have this song?

  75. Saix

    I love how Kanye turned it backwards and got his inspiration from it. I love I wonder and this.

    Uzyz

    Daft punk

  76. TurCoD

    of course he is not going to get pissed when he "founds out" about Kanye took his song. Obviously Kanye payed him and cleared the sample lol

    @Caleb Thomas

  77. rustybotboy

    As much criticism Kanye may get, he's brilliant at taking old gems and making a fantastic production with them.

    Poppy Kneegrow

    rustybotboy 💎🙌🏼

    joeguy1092

    Valid bro this is why Kanye will forever be one of my favorite artists.

  78. Afro Bluee

    What song did Kanye sample this for?

    rustybotboy

    I wonder on his Graduation album

    Sean Follett

    @rustybotboy I wonder on Kanye's  Graduation album too. Steely Dan with a fantastic transition to Daft Punk. Can you tell us what song it was though?

    Fratboy Fitness

    The song is "I wonder"

  79. SAKIDJA ASKAJ

    ... The opening lines THEN how it got sampled XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD OMG

  80. Caleb Thomas

    He'd be pissed if he found out kanye took his song

  81. Jordan Davis

    This song keep me calm

  82. Julian Escobedo

    Kanye always winning when it comes to sampling. Genius.

  83. TheCardboardGuy

    ....except kanye

  84. DjSilver118

    Wowwww I remember this song my pops used to play this song when i was younger. the nostalgia trip i just had 

  85. Rose x

    Woah  Labi you are still as fab as you ever were,made me cry,what a fantastic beautiful song. Love love it xxxxx

  86. Stuntman Ted

    people take the sampling way to negatively. Its not as if Kanye sampled this and now is like "oh look at this original song i fucking made." It's still Labi Siffre's song. Kanye found his own message within the song and used it, its not like hes disrespecting siffre, if anything, after finding out the sample I would think kanye respects him.

  87. David McNally

    i hate kanye west, but i wonder is the only song by him that i even like, in fact, i love it, but only coz of this. When he starts rapping i don't really enjoy it anymore, but this sample is so fucking awesome

  88. Digital Dank

    West didn't "take" Siffre's song. If anything West helped prove Siffre that his music can live on through generations. It's called sampling people it's an art too

  89. Elvito101

    This song is responsible for one of my favorite kanye songs of all time

    SWATG

    We're on the same boat with that one broo. Kanye did his thing sampling it. That's what brought me here

    Kosol Onwudinjor

    @SWATG We are on the same boat for sure! The song keeps me "alive with my dreams"

    Poppy Kneegrow

    And i wonder 🤔 if they knowwwww
    🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

  90. Scorpioking1987

    I Love this wonderful masterpiece -

  91. MeshyTV

    Sampling and taking something away are two different things.. You guys are taking it way out of context. He's saying that no matter what happens, that IN HIM, his song will never die. "As long as I live, I will sing my song for you."

  92. Madison

    such a great song 

  93. kingofawesome21

    tyler the creator legit brought me here

  94. Brilliantbeing

    I give Kanye a lot of credit for finding this gem, however, I wish more of today's artists would actually learn how to play and sing music this beautifully. There's a difference.

  95. afroknuckles

    Kanye brought me here

  96. Jazmine Flores

    They used to play. This song at my old school and I still love it hatters 18 dislikes

  97. Matt Etter

    That first line though
