I wish I never looked, I wish I never touched
I wish that I could stop loving you so much
Cause I’m the only one that’s trying to keep us together
When all of the signs say that I should forget her
I wish you weren’t the best, the best I ever had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
Cause it’ll never be over (never be over) until you tell me it’s over

[Intro: Lupe Fiasco]
Hope the wound heals but it never does
That’s cause you’re at war with love
You’re at war with love, yeah

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
They ain’t never gonna change
These battle…

[Verse 1: Lupe Fiasco]
Never let a wound ruin me
But I feel like ruin’s wooing me
Arrow holes, they never close from Cupid on a shooting spree
Feeling stupid cause I know it ain’t no you and me
But when you’re trying to beat the odds up
Been trying to keep your nods up
And you know that you should know
And let her go
But the fear of the unknown
Hold another lover strong
Sends you back into the zone
With no Tom Hanks to bring you home
A lover not a fighter
On the front line with a poem
Trying to write yourself a rifle
Maybe sharpen up a stone
To fight the tanks and drones of you being alone

[Pre-hook: Guy Sebastian]
I wish I never looked, I wish I never touched
I wish that I could stop loving you so much
Cause I’m the only one that’s trying to keep us together
When all of the signs say that I should forget her
I wish you weren’t the best, the best I ever had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
Cause it’ll never be over (never be over) until you tell me it’s over

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
They ain’t never gonna change
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
They ain’t never gonna change
These battle…

[Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
(Then just leave then)
You shouldn’t have but you said it
(And I hope you never come back)
It shouldn’t have happened but you let it
Now you’re down on the ground screaming medic
The only thing that comes is the post-traumatic stresses
Shields, body armors and vests don’t properly work
That’s why you’re in a locker full of hurt
The enemy within and all the fires from your friends
The best medicine’s to probably just let it win

[Pre-hook: Guy Sebastian]
I wish I couldn’t feel, I wish I couldn’t love
I wish that I could stop cause it hurts so much
And I’m the only one that’s trying to keep us together
When all of the signs say that I should forget her
I wish you weren’t the best, the best I ever had
I wish that the good outweighed the bad
Cause it’ll never be over, until you tell me it’s over

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
They ain’t never gonna change
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
They ain’t never gonna change
These battle…

[Bridge: Guy Sebastian & Lupe Fiasco]
Cause you set me on fire
I’ve never felt so alive, yeah

No, hoping wounds heal, but it never does
That’s because you’re at war with love

And I’m at the point of breaking
And it’s impossible to shake it (yeah)

See, you hoped the wound heals, but it never does
That’s cause you’re at war with love
Hope it heals, but it never does
That’s cause you’re at war with love!

[Hook: Guy Sebastian]
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
I ain’t ever gonna change
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
They ain’t never gonna change
These battle scars don’t look like they’re fading
Don’t look like they’re ever going away
I ain’t never gonna change
These battle…

Kari Kimmel – Every Second

Posted in Lyrics, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , at 11:29 am by LynxLee

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you’d know I simply love artists that bear their soul. Love songs, family, expression of struggles, hope, strength, faith and a lot more.

I do judge a book by it’s cover; but for what’s it worth – I do dedicate myself to certain people I like/love and change accordingly. I don’t waste time when it comes to feelings, I mean – we’re living every second until the day we die.. shouldn’t we measure it by love?

Kari Kimmel has always been a favourite for me ever since I heard her songs. Bear in mind I’m all the way here in Malaysia listening to artists in United States. I’ve listened to her 11 tracks in her latest album (released two days ago – 15th June 2016) and identified track 1, 8 (this one) and 11 to be the best ones (food for the sentimental soul of mine). Feel free to click on her album below and support her via iTunes. And yes, I did write the lyrics below by hand – obviously copyrighted by Kari Kimmel’s Recording Company.

She posted the below under Facebook:
“Having spent the past year welcoming her baby Poppy into the world, aptly titled “Poppyfields”, this album captures Kari at her most vulnerable, harnessing a collection of songs written for film that capture those familiar moments that make us feel alive.”

Can’t get more “vulnerable” than this track.

Travel over, Hold on, Express yourself – we won’t know what’s coming; but we’d know what we’d lose if we don’t.

Don’t waste “every second”. Go for it.

I feel your fingers when you’re holding tight to me
I can’t believe we’re standing here
I couldn’t write a better story on a crazy dream
We were always meant to be

I can’t believe this is real
And I can’t believe it’s happening
You’re everything to me
There isn’t a doubt in my mind
Nothing could be more perfect or right

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I feel your fingers when you’re holding tight to me
I can’t believe we’re standing here
I couldn’t write a better story on a crazy dream
We were always meant to be

And that’s what keeps me holding on

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I’ve been waiting for this for so long

I can’t explain it
I just know I can’t walk away
I know that I can’t walk away

Sometimes it’s so crazy game I don’t know how to play
But I know that you feel the same

That’s what keeps me holding on

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I can’t believe this is real
And I can’t believe it’s happening
You’re everything to me
There isn’t a doubt in my mind
Nothing could be more perfect or right

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I’ve been waiting for this for so long
