Sampha – Only Lyrics

Sampha Only Lyrics

Only, only, only
Only, only you
Only, only, only
Only, only, only

Still here, only God knows why
Still here, only God knows why
Dreams of a beach with a house behind
Deep thought on the speed of life
Sun’s in perfect reach each time
Then I wake up clean to a different light
And I see problems, jump and hide
I can’t see trap doors in my mind
Blurry signs that I can’t define
Like predicting movements ahead of time
Projectiles coming from the side
Projectiles coming for my life
War zone when I close my eyes

La, la, la, it’s fingers in my ears
I was not tryna hear
I’m moving on faith and faith only
Desires crush me numb
I would chase and then some
From love I would run like
It’s just here to disown me
That’s why I keep my distance
Even if I miss it, wire me
The wisdom to pick up when it phones me
Take my body for a walk
Call somebody just to talk
Take a mic and press record
And speak the truth only

Only, only, only
Only, only, only you
Only, only, only
Only, only, only you

I was chasing highs
Oh, on diagonal
Started looking down
Like where the middle go?

I been on this grind
Like it’s gonna break my fall
Careerism pothole
Like where my loved ones go?
Obedient blindly
I trust you and you know
I don’t wanna judge but
I need to save my soul
I question your priorities
Isn’t in this boat
Wired to a system
Born into a code

Has a way of keeping
Self esteem on the low
Betting on myself
Like, how wise is this hope?
Betting on myself
Like, how wide is this hole?
You tell me it’s the wrong choice
You tell me it’s the wrong choice
But I

La, la, la, it’s fingers in my ears
I was not tryna hear
I’m moving on faith and faith only
Desires crush me numb
I would chase and then some
From love I would run like
It’s just here to disown me

Only, only, only
Only, only, only you
Only, only, only
Only, only, only, only you
Only, only, only
Only, only, only, only you
Only, only, only
Only, only, only
