Alessia Cara – Wild Things (Lyrics)

 

Wild Things - AC

Verse 1:

Find table spaces
Say your social graces
Bow your head, they’re pious here
But you and I, we’re pioneers
We make our own rules
Our own room, no bias here
Let ’em sell what they are sellin’
There are no buyers here

So gather all the rebels now
We’ll rabble-rouse and sing aloud
We don’t care what they say, no way, no way
And we will leave the empty
Chairs to those who say we can’t sit there
We’re fine all by ourselves

 

Chorus:

So aye, we brought our drum and this is how we dance
No mistakin’, we make our breaks
If you don’t like our 808s
Then leave us alone, ’cause we don’t need your policies
We have no apologies for being

 

Find me where the wild things are
Oh, my, we’ll be alright
Don’t mind us, yeah
Find me where the wild things are
Oh, my, we’ll be just fine
Don’t mind us, yeah
Find me where the wild things are

 

Verse 2:

I lose my balance on these eggshells
You tell me to tread
I’d rather be a wild one instead
Don’t wanna hang around the in crowd
The cool kids aren’t cool to me
They’re not cooler than we are

 

Chorus:

 

So aye, we brought our drum and this is how we dance
No mistakin’, we make our breaks
If you don’t like our 808s
Then leave us alone, ’cause we don’t need your policies
We have no apologies for being

 

Find me where the wild things are
Oh, my, we’ll be alright
Don’t mind us, yeah
Find me where the wild things are
Oh, my, we’ll be just fine
Don’t mind us, yeah

 

Bridge:

We will carve our place into time and space
We will find our way, or we’ll make a way, say hey, hey, hey
Find you’re great, don’t you hide your face
And let it shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine

 

Chorus:

So aye, we brought our drum and this is how we dance
No mistakin’, we make our breaks
If you don’t like our 808s
Then leave us alone, ’cause we don’t need your policies
We have no apologies for being

Find me where the wild things are
Oh, my, we’ll be alright
Don’t mind us, yeah
Find me where the wild things are
Oh, my, we’ll be just fine
Don’t mind us, yeah
Find me where the wild things are

#MCM: KHALID – BREATH OF FRESH SOUL

CyeTALaUQAAN7O3.jpg

Recently came across this young, Texan, grizzly bear; with a remarkable voice – might I spice – when an acquaintance of mine played a song of his “Location” on our drive to our herbalist.

I was taken aback by his laid-back, casual and effortless sound. Soft, subtle, somewhat spiritual singing. The kind that VVVIP-tag passes through your ears; right through your mind, heart & soul and settles in your being.

I wanted more!!!

Now, apparently this Khaled has been making the waves… Me not being aware of this is pretty normal, I never know what’s trending and I don’t really care to seek it out of daily living. I’ve always been the trendsetter anyway. (Yes, of cause.)

I got home later that evening and checked him out. The greatest thing I did for myself at that point – I fell in love.

Khalid Robinson (born February 11, 1998), known mononymously as Khalid (pronounced ‘KUH-LeeD’), is an American singer and songwriter from El Paso, Texas. He is signed to Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records. He is best known for his debut single, “Location“, which has peaked at number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 which is currently his highest-charting single and has gone platinum – (Wikipedia)

I got his album, American Teen and listened to it all night and all day. I could not believe all that soul seeped out of a 19 year old (At first I couldn’t believe he’s 19 but abelungu bathi ‘Don’t judge a book blaze-blah-woopti-woo’.) I thought they don’t make them like this anymore,

From the first track – which is also the title of his debut album – American Teen, I got Goosebumps!!!

“American Teen is the debut studio album by American R&B recording artist Khalid. It was released on March 3, 2017, by Right Hand Music Group and RCA Records. The album was supported by the singlesLocation“, and “Young Dumb & Broke””

The album begins with 2 vibey tracks – American Teen and Young, Dumb & Broke (A personal favourite) – and switches right on to hit single, Location. From there, all the soul is spilled into your ears with mellow and soulful songs that you will want to listen to over-and-over again.

I love every song on the album; I however have a few real favourites like:

  • Young, Dumb & Broke
  • Location
  • Coaster
  • Cold Blooded
  • Winter
  • Therapy
  • Shot Down
  • Angels
  • Hopeless

Once you check it out, you’ll realise that list of favourites is basically the whole album.

As new as this is, I can’t wat for another offering from him. I get the sense that this is just the tip of the iceberg; maturity and experience will breed a beast out of this Texan Grizzly Bear (Who I find so Yum-Yum-And-Dope). I look forward to whatever else he has to offer in the future.

He’s my man crush every day! I’m such a fan!!!
