4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. . .
*I always said that I’d read the bible front to back and take from it as I would any other fictional novel. Maybe I should do that soon. No time like the present.
When the first snippet of this song dropped I was ALL IN. The production is superb and definitely my taste (most of the production he uses is). Then the lyrics. You can always draw what you want from anything (read: religious extremists) but the first verse is MORE than drugs and sex (the majority of his content). Then the bridge? It’s EVERYTHING. I can’t wait for the official version (unless the bbc rip uses the official in which case there won’t be much difference)…
I tell myself that I’ll take you for the last time
I’ll be over you eventually
Time after time, you seem to push me off
I understand what we have become
You wash your neck when you leave, now I know your routine
I was in love with your mystery
Now I just take what I can get from you
I’m not embarrassed to be what you want me to be
Cause unlike you I got nothing to hide
I don’t pretend to have any shame
I got a box we could put all your lies in
Until the end of days
You know that I will be a call away
The call you make when you’re all alone
And I know that I will always be the one
You repent when you are done
Well here comes the sun
And you’re in my arms
And my denial keeps me on the edge of the chance
That you’ll stay through the night
