My Life’s Soundtrack - Not The Girl

Move over M.I.! Yeah, the Pyeri boy sure ruled MLS two months back but this time my soundtracks for the month will be taken from the latest album of yet another talented male R & B / Hip-hop / Fuji vocalist who goes by the name Dare Art Alade. One thing I love about him? There is only ONE DAREY, no imitation! Let’s ride as I kick-off this month with his Cobhams Asuquo-assisted Hip-Hop World Awards-nominated single…

Track: Not The Girl (Track 3 from the album unDAREYted)
Artiste: Dare "Da-rey" Art Alade
Transcribed by: Naughty Eyes

You’re not the girl I used to know
You’re a shadow of yourself
I think I lost you long ago
Like a book that’s left the shelf
I hear the footsteps down the hall
And I know someday that will be you leaving me for good

[Verse 1]
I’ve been sitting here for two straight hours watching you asleep
Wishing I could talk to you
There is no denying we both have emotions running deep
Oh if I could talk to you
‘Cos I’m scared, ‘cos when I try to take your hand you are not there
Even though I see the signs you think I’m just scared
Give me one reason why I should hide my fears
When it’s killing me inside…

[Repeat Chorus]

[Verse 2]
We have been together for so long you seem a part of me
Just how did this all go wrong?
And you say you gave to me your best just to make it work
But just how did this all go wrong?
‘Cos I try, see my eyes are empty from all the tears I cried
Since this perfect love is hardly satisfied
Give me one reason why I should hide my tears
When it’s killing me inside…

[Repeat Chorus]

Hmm… And if I ever come across a girl like you again
I don’t know if I will let my emotions show
I’ll just look the other way
I don’t care what you might say
‘Cos I’m not so sure how much of this
My poor heart can take

[Repeat Chorus x 3]

@ BSNC: M.I. is great no doubt, but it's about time I started paying other artistes equal attention...
