Read All About It – Emeli Sandé

You’ve got the words to change a nation
But you’re biting your tongue
You’ve spent a lifetime stuck in silence
Afraid you’ll say something wrong
If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?

So come on, come on
Come on, come on

You’ve got a heart as loud as lightning
So why let your voice be tamed?
Maybe we’re a little different
There’s no need to be ashamed
You’ve got the light to fight the shadows
So stop hiding it away

Come on, come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ‘til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

At night we’re waking up the neighbors
While we sing away the blues
Making sure that we’re remembered, yeah
‘Cause we all matter too
If the truth has been forbidden
Then we’re breaking all the rules

So come on, come on
Come on, come on

Let’s get the TV and the radio
To play our tune again
It’s ‘bout time we got some airplay of our version of events
There’s no need to be afraid
I will sing with you my friend

So come on, come on

‘Cause I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ‘til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Yes, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?
Now we’re finally finding our voices
So take a chance, come help me sing this
Yes, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?
And now we’re finally finding our voices
Just take a chance, come help me sing this

‘Cause I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ‘til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it (Professor Green)
Read all about it, oh

As a kid I looked up to you
Only thing was I never saw enough of you
The last thing I said to you was I hated you
I loved you and now it’s too late to say to you
Just didn’t know what to do or how to deal with it
Even now deep down I’m still livid
To think, I used to blame me
I wondered what I did to you to make you hate me
I wasn’t even 5, life’s a journey and mine wasn’t an easy ride
You never even got to see me rhyme
I just wished you would have reached out
I wish you would’ve been ‘round when I’d been down
I wish that you could see me now
Wherever you are I really hope you found peace
But know that if I ever have kids
Unlike you I’ll never let them be without me

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it, oh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it, oh
