Tori Kelly - Kid I Used To Know Lyrics




Lost in this desert
Feels like a thousand years
Looking for water
Swear there was an ocean here

How do I get back where I came from
When everything has all changed so much
Feeling the pressure now
It's tying my heart down
I'm missing the empty skies of my youth
Every cloud on the ever bright blues
Just want that piece again
But the chaos is closing in

I know
That I can't ever go
Back to the world when life was only
Playing, dreaming, dancing on my own
I keep trying to find that feeling
Something's running wild
With nothing weighing heavy on my soul
Looking for the kid I used to know

Oh-oh

All of these voices
It's hard to tune them out
Yeah-yeah, yeah
I should accept it
Things ain't so simple now
No-no, yeah

I wanna see whatever I want
Not even think about falling in love
Chasing the rainbows
And where did the time go

Yeah I know
That I can't ever go
Back to the world when life was only
Playing, dreaming, dancing on my own
I keep trying to find that feeling
Something's running wild
With nothing weighing heavy on my soul
Looking for the kid I used to know

Yeah-yeah
The kid I used to know
Yeah, yeah-yeah

Oh-oh, back when I

No I can't ever go
Back to the world when life was only
Playing, dreaming, dancing on my own
I keep trying to find that feeling
Something's running wild
With nothing weighing heavy on my soul
Looking for the kid I used to know
I used to know, yeah
The kid I used to know

  11. K Smith

    I just listed to the full album on Thursday and I instantly hit repeat on this track!!! The song resonated to my soul!!! 31 and still lost but I know we can only go forward, it's hard though!!! Yet, I still find myself looking for that kid.

  12. K M

    The people that disliked this were probably mad that there isn't a "love" button

  13. Ayesha Pilcher

    CAN SHE BE LIKE HUGE ALREADY. like HUUUUUUGE. her voice is the most unreal thing i have ever heard.

  14. Jonathan Grant

  31. kenanthoughts

    from 3:30 - 3:44 i think she wasn't breathing... WOW! the amount of air she can hold in her lungs is out of this world. i wonder how she does it

  32. Charmayne M

    Nice song, but we all have to eventually become responsible adults. Adulthood can be scary and worrisome; however, with God, any situation is easier to face. As much as I have endured at 38yrs old, I do not want to return to my pre-teens or teenage days (LOL). I will continue to press forward with gratefulness in my heart.

    think it's less about being the kid but more about the feelings. the feeling of freedom and not having to worry about life as much.

  33. Şimalll bcr

    She deserves everything ! 😻♥️

  34. clara mey

    I so know that feeling... searching for that little girl... years ago. Thx :)

    There's something unconventional in the way this song portrays bittersweetness. It doesn't go all the way down to the melancholy but there's a considerable amount of emotional drive hidden in here. Tori is amazing.

    Tradução - Garota Que Eu Conhecia
    Perdida neste deserto, parece mil anos
    Procurando por água, juro que havia um oceano aqui
    Como eu volto de onde vim
    Quando tudo mudou muito
    Sentindo a pressão agora
    Está amarrando meu coração
    Perdendo os céus vazios da minha juventude
    Nunca uma nuvem no azul sempre brilhante
    Só quero aquela paz novamente
    O caos está se aproximando
    Eu sei que não posso voltar ao mundo quando a vida era apenas
    Brincar, sonhar, dançar sozinha
    Eu continuo tentando encontrar esse coração sem medo que está correndo selvagem
    Com nada pesando pesado na minha alma
    Procurando pela garota que eu conhecia
    Todas essas vozes, é difícil eliminá-las
    Eu deveria aceitar isso, não é tão simples agora
    Eu quero dizer o que eu quiser
    E não pensar em se apaixonar
    Perseguindo os arco-íris
    E onde foi o tempo?
    Sim, eu sei que não posso voltar ao mundo quando a vida era apenas
    Brincar, sonhar, dançar sozinha
    Eu continuo tentando encontrar esse coração sem medo que está correndo selvagem
    Com nada pesando pesado na minha alma
    Procurando pelo garoto que eu conhecia
    A garota que eu conhecia
    Voltar para quando eu aprendi a voar
    Não, eu não posso voltar ao mundo quando a vida era apenas
    Brincar, sonhar, dançar sozinha
    Eu continuo tentando encontrar esse coração sem medo que está correndo selvagem
    Com nada pesando pesado na minha alma
    Procurando pela garota que eu conhecia
    Eu costumava saber
    A garota que eu conhecia
    Procurando pela garota que eu conhecia
    Eu costumava saber
    Onde ela foi? Onde ela foi?
    Eu costumava conhecê-la

    Erica Phillips

    @Christina Brooke that's exactly what she says in the lyrics for the chorus. Tori has it in the description . I use to have the words mixed up myself
