Tori Kelly ft. Big Sean – Hollow

I’m in love! with Tori Kelly. I honestly feel that she has got to be one of the most underrated artist so far. I remember the first track I felt in love with was “Should’ve Been Us” (I mean, 27 million views can’t go wrong) – but for now I’m posting up Tori Kelly and Big Sean. I love her album, a lot of tracks with incredible vocals and meaningful lyrics. Dear No One, I Was Made For Loving You, Unbreakable Smile, All In My Head – perhaps it appeals to my memories, but it feels vaguely familiar indeed.

According to her,

“Hollow,” for me, is very directly connected to me and my faith – it’s like my love song to God. I tried to fill that hole with a bunch of only things, and I just know that Jesus is the only one that can fill it.

Perhaps that’s how I feel sometimes, I’m detached from prayer and the faith that I’m protected and loved. Then again, doesn’t everybody?
Like, I used to have visitors here. Now I’ll be surprised if anyone mentioned that I post anything here.

*Hello!*

*echos-back* – yep, Hollow.

TKELLY_Hollow-single-cover_SN3[Chorus: Tori Kelly]
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh

[Verse 3: Big Sean]
Look, I know you’ve been up at night
Tryna sleep with one eye open
Cryin’ out enough tears, you could fill up the Atlantic Ocean
No fun bein’ home alone, we learn this from Macaulay Culkin
So I’m just waitin’ on you
I’ve been callin’, pick me up
I know you need to pick me up
I need you to come grip me up, you my baby girl no sippy cup
Cup half empty or half full, I mean neither way just come and fill me up
Let’s take it back to the old days, head downtown and light the city up
On the late-late-late night, just pick a date then it’s date night
Karaoke, no stage fright
Girl, you was made for the stage light
Cause you got that phenomenal, most honorable
Got me fallin’, domino
Take you home to mama though, you know


[Verse 1: Tori Kelly]
I don’t wanna be the last man standing
I don’t wanna be the lonely one
Picking petals when the party’s over
No, it’s not any fun[Pre-Chorus: Tori Kelly]
Cause I’m fragile
And you know this

[Chorus: Tori Kelly]
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh

[Verse 2: Tori Kelly]
I don’t wanna be the first one folding
I don’t wanna be the joker heart
Tell me, darling, will you understand me?
And not show me your cards?

[Pre-Chorus: Tori Kelly]
Cause I’m paper-thin
And you, you make me whole again

[Chorus: Tori Kelly]
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh

[Verse 3: Big Sean]
Look, I know you’ve been up at night
Tryna sleep with one eye open
Cryin’ out enough tears, you could fill up the Atlantic Ocean
No fun bein’ home alone, we learn this from Macaulay Culkin
So I’m just waitin’ on you
I’ve been callin’, pick me up
I know you need to pick me up
I need you to come grip me up, you my baby girl no sippy cup
Cup half empty or half full, I mean neither way just come and fill me up
Let’s take it back to the old days, head downtown and light the city up
On the late-late-late night, just pick a date then it’s date night
Karaoke, no stage fright
Girl, you was made for the stage light
Cause you got that phenomenal, most honorable
Got me fallin’, domino
Take you home to mama though, you know

[Chorus: Tori Kelly]
And hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty, cause only your love can fill up my cup
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow (yeah)
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh (oh yeah)
Cause I’m hollow (I’m hollow)
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
