Pick Me Up

Album: The London Sessions (2014)
  • Pick me up, pilot
    Fly me straight to the island
    Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

    Pick me up, pilot
    Fly me straight to the island
    Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

    It's a jungle, out there is dangerous
    And the beast are hungry, got their eyes on us
    And the waves are high as the sea is deep
    And the sharks gon' look, when they see us swim

    Pick me up, pilot
    Fly me straight to the island
    Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

    Pick me up, pilot
    Fly me straight to the island
    Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

    It's a battle out there and their guns are big
    People colder than you could ever feel
    And their hearts are twisted and their spirits are low
    Misery loves company they won't let us grow
    Misery loves company they won't let us grow
    Misery loves company they won't let us grow

    Pick me up, pilot
    Fly me straight to the island
    Soon the sun gon' be shining on me

    Get away
    We've got to get away
    We need our get away
    We got to get away, get away, get away

    Baby we, been forgetting
    We got to get away
    Look at what we're accepting
    We've got something they just can't see

    Pick me up, pilot
    Fly me straight to the island
    Soon the sun gon' be shining on me Writer/s: SHAHID KHAN, SHAKIL ASHRAF, EMELIE SANDE, MARY J. BLIGE
