Dave & James Blake – Both Sides of A Smile Lyrics

Share

Part I

[Intro]

And then, the finer details—who’s your Juliet?

What’s the dynamic in the situation between the two leads?

You know, I guess we’re all just, we’re all just looking for a happy ending somewhere

[Pre-Chorus: James Blake]

Hey, it’s okay (It’s okay)

I don’t care if no one knows my name

Pain, it’s all the same (All the same)

Even if you think it’s all in vain

[Chorus: James Blake]

‘Cause I am turning hurt into rose, into rose, into rose, oh-oh, oh-oh

Into rose, into rose, into rose

How could we let it slide?

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm

Looking back at our lives

The future’s just a lie

Wе’ll be there, you and I

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm

On both sidеs of a smile

[Verse: Dave, ShaSimone, Both]

Yeah

You keep the bread all to yourself and you get mold from it

You give a good girl a rose and you get gold from it

Have a child with a rat and you’ll get a mouse from it

You give a woman a brick and you’ll get a house from it

The first time splittin’ up always the hardest thing

Love’s a film and I’m just flickin’ through the parts I’m in

I told her, “I don’t wanna argue in this car I’m in”

And that’s when she hit me with a

“Well, I don’t get why you would tell me you want me to be your wifey

When you wanna be Romeo, have me here for the rodeo

I don’t believe you when you gas me up and hype me

‘Cause you’re lusting in these women that fuckin’ look nothin’ like me, David

You find asylum in the countries that you fly me

And carry all of your guilt in designers bags that you buy me, David

I ain’t askin’ you to be someone you wasn’t”

I just wanna fuck with the person I fell in love with, but uh

Petite waist, sweet face, I’ll find another man

VIEW:  Joshua Bassett – Doppelgänger Lyrics

You must have forgotten who the fuck I am

There’s plenty niggas waitin’ for chances

Ask me if I’m taken, I say, “Taken for granted”

But you know this already

‘Cause we’ve spoken already

Want me to wait ’cause you ain’t ready

Now we’re both in our twenties

I’d date a man before I wait for a man, this ends here

‘Cause I’ll be damned if I give a fucking loser my best years

Got my own car, own money and my own body

If I show body, this for me, this ain’t for nobody

I’ma change the lock on the door, think I’m a homebody?

You won’t have a house to fucking live in

‘Cause you taught me you don’t listen

There’s a difference in mistakes and in decisions, David

The first time was the worst time

It didn’t hurt like the second or the third time

She put her life on pause

[Chorus: James Blake]

‘Cause I am turning hurt into rose, into rose, into rose, oh-oh, oh-oh

Into rose, into rose, into rose

How could we let it slide?

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm

Looking back at our lives

The future’s just a lie

We’ll be there, you and I

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm, mm-hmm

On both sides of a smile

Part II

[Intro: James Blake]

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

[Verse: Dave & James Blake]

Yeah

I just came to the area I grew up in

They can’t even see the car but from the engine

They know it’s me

From no fixed abode to the coast of Greece

I’m most at home in the places I ain’t supposed to be

I grew up seeing mommy count pennies (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

Tryna buy a train ticket but forget sayin’ “Woe is me”

VIEW:  Anna Lunoe – Double Dip Lyrics

Now I’m in LA with the open sea

They both feel like things I wasn’t supposed to see (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

Used to be my post, we was close

Now we argue to the rhythm of a broken beat

To the beat of a broken heart

Napoleon Bonaparte meets Joan of Arc (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

We’re both fightin’ the sea, this is Noah’s ark

We’re lovers with a broken past, grow apart

Most things that last have the slowest start

A lotta pain and a lotta tears (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

The only reason that I lie it’s ’cause of what I fear

My girl knows that I’m a fan of charity but there’s some information I ain’t never gonna volunteer (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

I wish that I could pay for my sins with a lump sum

Restore her belief in me with a trust fund

The money can’t buy nothing when the love’s done

I used to cheat with Americans for a living, I felt nervous every time I got a call from a plus one (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

It takes years to build when you love one

Two and half minutes and it’s undone (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

Bought my girl a Birkin and she told me that these bitches can’t chat to her, I’m tellin’ her that they never could

You know you love her when you’re doin’ shit you never would

Come up off the drugs and bank scams (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

How the fuck you think I got the name Santan?

Run up on me and get a skin tan

Only when you’re gone they feel your impact

Nineteen, I had dreams of a wedding ring (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

So focused on running our race

You can ask James Blake, I ain’t see the color in anything

VIEW:  Erigga - Coffin Lyrics

And then the world got darker than its ever been (Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

Real estate, I buss a smile

International, that’s how I’m comin’ now

Mortgage on the yard like twenty-two hundred but the rent’s got it covered by a country mile

(Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

Feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

(Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

(Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm)

[Outro: James Blake & Dave]

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

Oh, oh, oh

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Oh, oh, oh

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Oh, oh, oh

It feels like my luck’s been runnin’ out

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Oh, oh, oh

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm

Mm-hmm-hmm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm, mm-mm
