I'd Like To (Radio Edit)

I'd Like To (Radio Edit)

Corinne Bailey Rae

Lying here with you reminds me of those days
Me and Candice waking up to a heat wave
Mother's in the garden inviting everyone
Oh, we'd cut up our old jeans and go outside
Neighbor's always smiling with the baby on her knee
Mia's sat on the front step getting her hair combed out in weaves
And music, the bass boomin', oh, it's from the car parked in the street
Got that new song on repeat, oh, oh

[Chorus:]
(I'd, I'd) like to put my fingers on you
(I'd, I'd) like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'd just like to make you see that
I desire simple things

Growing up, we didn't have a lot of money
Used to spend our summer having parties on the drive
Plastic cups for rum and punch, eating chicken that's hot and sweet
All the women discussing what love is like; ooo, you know the way I mean
And I'm just sitting, watching, hoping the boys will call for me
Got that new song on repeat, oh, oh

(I'd, I'd) like to put my fingers on you
(I'd, I'd) like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just tryin' to make you see that
I desire simple things

Maybe then, now and then, I would want somebody
Delicate, intimate, used to dream of someone to love
Now you come, and you go right by me
I know I'm in love

(I'd, I'd) like to put my fingers on you
(I'd, I'd) like to paint this picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just tryin' to make you see that
I desire simple things

[Chorus]

(I'd, I'd) oh, I'd like to put my fingers on you
(I'd, I'd) and paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
Oh, I desire simple things
