I should have known
it wouldn't be easy
The moment you feed me
You cannot sleep easy

Breaking the part
I meant to be making

My mind is replacing
The heart that I 'm chasing

Singing in the same tongue
Glad I am not the only one
Wasting my time
In darkness we shine

Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive

Standing alone,
It feels like I am falling
When I hear you calling
My cool heart is soaring

Run in the sun
I see your reflection,
My only connection,
Is in your direction,
Speaking in the same tongue
Let down my guard
Beneath a dark star

Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive

Speaking in the same tongue
Promise your the only one
Let down my guard
Beneath the dark sky

Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive
Trying to stay alive

It's called age. It will happen to you.
Love the reggae groove!

Always is probably a key word here.
Just an absolutely lovely voice.
I was texting my friend in China about all the people with COVID-19 in my area when I noticed the lyrics to this song {#Sealed}

I could easily mistake this for The Corrs.

I actually like this tune...despite the intentional reggae feel. I like her voice and supporting instrumentation and arrangement.

Saw her live at Cornwall's 'Tropical Pressure' festy a couple of years ago.

Beguiling.
today right now, eating an pulled pork enchilada with tasty beans and rice... this is the best mexican rap song ever. Its all about being in the moment. Thank you Bill! :)

Saw her a few years ago playing Bath Fringe Festival.... the bass had more than a few local residents complaining..

New album seems to be all over the media here... long appearance on 6Music at the weekend... floats my boat!
 
Nice one.  Was that the bass or the Bass?  I find it gives me wind.

Super sexy tune! 10+
Perfect summer mood, time for barbecue.
Some nice old British reggae made new again.  Very nice.
reminds me of Sinkane out of NYC     
there is something indulgent and fun about this sound...I turned it up WAY loud

Interesting mix of musical types.
Paul Cook's daughter (Sex Pistols), was a 2000's member of the Slits. 
Familiar, yet fun.
