INA WROLDSEN – Strongest


You sit there with that look on your face like you won
Like nothing that I say is gonna change how you feel now
You sit there and you tell me you fell outta love
And we are in your way so you just gotta leave now
And we just need to understand your reasons
And you are gonna justify this treason
By telling me the promises that we sworn ain’t enough
So now you gonna be another person?
And how do I explain this shit to our son?
How’d you tell a toddler about a girlfriend?
Daddy’s gone

Well, I will be the strongest that he ever knew
And I will be there when he needs a love strong enough
Don’t worry I will carry your share for us
No matter how bad the storm
I will be strongest that he ever knew
And we’ll leave you alone

You sit there with your phone in your hands and you’re hurt
You tell me that you feel like you lost me when he came
I’m sorry but I cannot connect with your words
‘Cause right now what matters isn’t yours but it is his name
And we just need to find another income
‘Cause she wants you to help her with her own one
And you want me to tell me that what you’ve done is okay

So now you gonna be another father?
And I will be a different kind of mother?
How’d you tell a toddler ’bout step brothers?
Daddy’s strayed

Well, I will be the strongest that he ever knew
And I will be there when he needs a love strong enough
Don’t worry I will carry your share for us
No matter how bad the storm
I will be strongest that he ever knew
And we’ll leave you alone
Let’s talk about family
Let’s talk about family
Let’s talk of the ties and the lies
And the love that we had in this family
Let’s talk about honesty
You know nothing about honesty
I’ll let go of your hands and our plans
And the chance that we had with this family

Well, I will be the strongest that he ever knew
And I will be there when he needs a love strong enough
Don’t worry I will carry your share for us
No matter how bad the storm
I will be strongest that he ever knew
And we’ll leave you alone
Oh na na, we’ll leave you alone

JAX JONES feat. INA WROLDSEN – Breathe


Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum
What you, what you gon’ do?
You’re my discretional sin
I feel you on me when I touch my skin
You got me hooked and you’re reelin’ me in
And I look in your eyes, I’m on the edge
You’re on my mind like a song that I can’t escape
I don’t know how many da-da-dums I can take
I need to know if you’re feeling, feeling the same
Is it too late?
But now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a game we do
I tell myself I’m not that into you
But I don’t wanna sleep, it’s quarter after three
You’re in my head like
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
You’re in my head like
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
You’re my obsession, my truth
I call my lifeline whenever I’m with you
And now I dialed your number again
And you come over and over, and then
You’re on my mind like a song that I can’t escape
I don’t know how many da-da-dums I can take
I need to know if you’re feeling, feeling the same
Is it too late?
But now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a game we do
I tell myself I’m not that into you
But I don’t wanna sleep, it’s quarter after three
And now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a thing we make
We’re skin on skin, I need this spell to break
But I don’t wanna go and I know that you know
You’re in my head like
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
You’re in my head like
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da
 
And now it’s hard to breathe (thing we make)
Breathe (thing to do)
Breathe (thing we make)
Breathe
And now it’s hard to breathe (thing we make)
Breathe (thing to do)
Breathe (thing we make)
And now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a game we do
I tell myself I’m not that into you
But I don’t wanna sleep, it’s quarter after three
And now it’s hard to breathe
I’m not in love, it’s just a thing we make
Oh, we’re skin on skin, I need to this spell to break
But I don’t wanna go and I know that you know
You’re in my head like
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
Dum-dum-da-da-da-da, dum-dum-da-da-da
