Rakei, Jordan - May Lyrics




It was a dark night, when I heard the news
Rolled up my sleeves and walked
Like a landslide, overly abused
Yet told myself to call
Yes my mother, vaguely confused
She told me not to bawl
Bawl my eyes, 'cause my eyes are red
With nothing left at all
So I gather, my composure
Head quickly for the door
And yet alarm bells ring, maybe not enough
Frequent the lady called
Called me, your grandmother, I loved her so much more
Than nobody else, left on this earth
I'm in this state of raw

As we marched through the madness
April was unclear
Suddenly it turned to sadness
Hopes turned into fears
And it was May, it was May, it was May, it was May

Guess it was a day, the day of reckoning
Six feet beneath the soil
Yet we held on, held each other tight
With standards soon to storm
'Cause we're here now, yes we're here now
Moments like this are raw
It's my family tree planting it's roots stronger than before

As we marched through the madness
April was unclear
Suddenly it turned to sadness
Hopes turned into fears
And it was May, it was May, it was May, it was May

You left
You left
Without a chance to say
Without a chance to say goodbye at all
A chance to say goodbye at all

As we marched through the madness
April was unclear
Suddenly it turned to sadness
Hopes turned into fears
And it was May, it was May, it was May, it was May

    my grandma died april of 2019...and then it was may. this song was a favorite before she died.

  2. Danielle Padua

    Absolutely love this song... Hey Jordan, would it be possible if you could please post the piano chords please? :)

    Facundo Palacio

    Try with: Cm7 BbMaj7 Gm7 AbMaj7 (and maybe add #11 after) for the verse
    And when he sings "You left without a chance..." use Cmaj7 and Cmin7

    Danielle Padua

    @Facundo Palacio thanks for this - i know bridge is Am, Abmaj7, FM7 and Abmaj7 - just struggling to find verse chords - seems like theres almost seven chords that change as fast as the bass does but when playing bass chords on piano, it doesnt sound right..

    I still remember the day I got the call letting me know my grandmother passed away. It was months after my son was born. Didn’t get the chance to say goodbye either. Still hurts. But she got to meet her first great grand baby ❤️
