Softly

Album: yet to be titled (2022)

  • I'm dazzled hard, we're in Berlin
    And when you leave, just break it down to me softly
    Well there's a frame, I'm shattering
    I dip into the love we had with ease
    Lemon and ginger beer, soap suds on navels
    If I upset you, could you maybe say so?
    Has something changed, have I just missed the memo?
    Tell me what I don't know

    Oh, won't you
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Or I'll forget myself, I don't want no one else

    The pressure thuds behind my eyes
    You look at me as if it's my fault that we're stood here
    The cobalt of your scarf has pulled clear
    Stealing me traffic cones, smiling at babies
    I must admit I wanted you to save me
    Now I'm sat on the ground, feeling half crazy
    I don't want you to go

    Oh, won't you
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Or I'll forget myself, I don't want no one else

    Or I'll forget myself, I don't want no one else
    Or I'll forget myself, I don't want no one else
    Or I'll forget myself, I don't want no one else

    Oh, won't you
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Break it to me softly, I don't want no one else
    Break it to me, break it to me, break it to me
    Or I'll forget myself, I don't want no one else Writer/s: Anais Oluwatoyin Estelle Marinho
