The Greatest

Album: Sound & Color (2015)
  • Check this out
    And a five, six, seven, eight
    Well I never meant to be the greatest
    I only ever wanted to be your baby
    Not a stuck piece in your heart
    Don't ever let me go
    Go anywhere

    Should I stay, stay away
    I know you been out there tryin' to be my baby
    But God help us, help us all
    Don't ever let me down
    Go ahead and do with it

    Oh damn, uh huh
    Alright, uh huh, uh huh

    I stayed, stayed away
    I know you ain't out there tryin' to be my baby
    Dried up, ugly in your soul
    Don't ever let me go
    I can be your one and only

    But I never meant to be the greatest
    I know you ain't out there tryin' to be my baby
    Come on love me come on
    God please give 'im some soul
    If you can do anything, yeah Writer/s: Brittany Amber Howard, Heath Allen Fogg, Steven William Johnson, Zachary Riley Cockrell
