Give A Little

Album: Heard It In A Past Life (2018)
  • If I was who I was before
    Then I'd be waiting at your door
    But I cannot confess I am the same
    So, look at me and hear me now
    With all my body screaming out
    In my mind I'm thinking of the place

    Where no one knows me
    No one knows you
    And you don't know me
    And I don't know you

    you would open up your heart
    Drop your weapons, drop your guard
    Just a little trust is all it takes
    Oh, I know that you've been around
    But hear me now, I'm crying out
    Let me be the light upon the lake

    But if you give a little, get a little
    Maybe we could get to know each other
    Give a little, get a little, give a little
    And if you give a little, get a little
    Maybe we could learn to love each other
    Give a little, get a little, give a little

    Give a little, get a little, give a little
    Give a little, get a little, give a little

    If only we could find a way
    To leave all of our darker days
    Soak in all the sweetness on our skin
    Oh, and if you're waiting in the Sun
    Then carry me on wings of love
    To that brighter day where all begins

    And if you give a little, get a little
    Maybe we could get to know each other
    Give a little, get a little, give a little
    And if you give a little, get a little
    Maybe we could learn to love each other
    Give a little, get a little, give a little

    Give a little, get a little, give a little
    Oh oh oh

    But if you give a little, get a little
    Maybe we could get to know each other
    Give a little, get a little, give a little
    And if you give a little, get a little
    Maybe we could learn to love each other
    Give a little, get a little, give a little

    And no one knows me
    And no one knows you
    You don't know me
    I don't know you
    Everything's fresh, yeah
    Everything's new
    But you don't know me
    I don't know you
    I can feel it starting up now, yeah
    I can feel it all just coming through
    There's a whole new world just waiting, baby
    So much waiting just for me and you Writer/s: Greg Kurstin, Maggie Rogers
