Monáe, Janelle - It's Code Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
Love is gnawing on my mind
Feeling real down
All dressed up in my new suit
Took my name, my sight, my song
Been trying to find myself all day long
I heard em say
Love'll be your curse or a restless friend
Love belongs in movies
Now I know I played with your heart
Cause when I turned back around I saw
You in someone else's arms
Walking round town
All dressed up making your move
But I was scared to fall in love
I never thought I'd be the one
That would push you in her arms

[Chorus:]
Oh baby it's cold
I want you to hold me
And love me til I want no more
Need me, and need me til I need no more
Baby it's cold, baby it's cold

[Bridge:]
But I was scared to fall in love
I never thought I'd be the one
That would push you in her arms, oh!

[Chorus:]
Oh baby it's cold
I want you to hold me
And love me til I want no more
Need me, and need me til I need no more
Baby it's cold, baby it's cold

[Verse 2:]
Oh baby, hey baby
I wanna be in your arms, oh
Please don't leave
Please I need a nurse
I've been hurt
I need a glass of Merlot Blanc
I know I was wrong
But can't you see
The harm that's been done to me, oh!

Monáe, Janelle It's Code Comments
  1. muzikman183

    this whole album still fucks me up! yall put some damn good music together! Given me chills!!!

  2. Ganymede, Jupiter III

    Not only Jackson 5, this sounds specifically like "Never Can Say Goodbye"--even with the "triple drums" and descending bass lines. Not that that's a bad thing.

  3. Tae Dunn

    this sounds like never can say goodbye by the jacksons

  4. Dead Channel

    [Verse 1]
    Love is gnawing on my mind
    Feeling real down, all dressed up in my new suit
    Took my name, my site, my song
    Been trying to find myself all day long
    I heard them saying that love will be a curse or a restless friend
    Love belongs in movies
    Now I know I played with your heart
    Cause when I turn back around I saw
    You in someone else's arms
    Walking around town, all dressed up making your move

    [Pre-Chorus]
    But I was scared to fall in love
    I never thought I'd be the one, that will push you in her arms, oh!

    [Chorus]
    Oh baby, it's code
    I want you to hold me, and love me until I want no more
    And need me, and need me until I need no more
    Baby, it's code
    Baby, it's code

    [Pre-Chorus]
    But I was scared to fall in love
    I never thought I'd be the one, that will push you in her arms, oh!

    [Chorus]
    Oh baby, it's code
    I want you to hold me, and love me until I want no more
    And need me, and need me until I need no more
    Baby, it's code
    Baby, it's code

    [Bridge]
    (Oh baby)
    Oh baby, hey baby!
    I want to be in your arms, ohh!
    Please don't leave...

    [Outro]
    Please! I need a nurse
    I've been...hurt!
    I need a glass of Merlot Blanc

  17. King Duke

    Sonically its modern day Jackson 5, the first min is a Rollercoaster of melody before settling into a smooth, loungy R&B feel. It's upbeat and groovy even through the vulnerability of the lyrics.

    King Duke it's telling a story. ...it's apart of a whole saga

    mrwright82

    Now that you mentioned it, I do get a J5 vibe from this song.

    Amin EL

    Janelle Monae, I love this beautiful human being ! Yes, a classic J-5 feel, also that cool breeziness in some of the chord progressions of flutist Bobbi Humphrey https://youtu.be/REwHwZACGe0
