or
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.
Ooh, we 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 me see that
I desire the 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, ooh 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

[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'm just trying to make you see that
I desire the 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.
Now I know I'm in love.

[Chorus]
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 trying to make you see that
I desire the simple things.

[Chorus: x3]
