John Legend - Surefire Lyrics




Can you just stay through the night
Turn down the bed and the blinds
Before you turn around
Can you just stay through the night?

Let me breathe you in 'til gravity bends
And we fall through the hole in the light
Make this our kingdom
Somewhere where good love conquers and not divides

'Cause I may not know a lot of things but I feel it in my chest
No, I won't let the blue flame die
We can't lose hope just yet
'Cause it's once, just once in a lifetime
And we're scared to love but it's alright
I may not know a lot of things but I know that we're surefire
Know that we're surefire

Can't keep this bed warm on the left side
When something is cold as a goodbye
Why don't you turn around
Ignore all that shit from the outside

The world is a nightmare
Wake up and stay here
Let me be on your side
We'll make this our kingdom
Somewhere where good love conquers and not divides

And, oh, my—oh, my—oh, my—oh, my God
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so tired of fighting
Let go, give in, let go and give up

I may not know a lot of things but I feel it in my chest
Know I won't let the blue flame die
We can't lose hope just yet
'Cause it's once, just once in a lifetime
And we're scared to love but it's alright
I may not know a lot of things but I know that we're surefire
Know that we're surefire

And oh, my—oh, my—oh, my—oh, my God
I'm so, I'm so, I'm so tired of fighting
Let go, give in, let go and give up

I may not know a lot of things but I feel it in my chest
If we just let the blue flame die the devil wins this bet
It's once, just once in a lifetime
And we're scared to love but it's alright
I may not know a lot of things but I know that we're surefire
Know that we're surefire

  28. lsc66416

    What a coincidence. I was just cutting onions while watching this.

  29. Cpt. Robert Christian

    Real Love, respect, and decency knows no boundaries, religions, cultures, nations, etc.. It is what we should all strive to give freely to one another.

    For those whom seek to disrespect, disregard, and disavow others, because they are not like you... to me you are an unfortunate waste of human space. Because instead of seeking to make the world and humanity more united, and better, you seek to divide and denigrate. And though I will treat you with decency, try as I may, I will just have no love or respect for you and those like you.

    This song and video is strong work and a strong anthem.

  30. Anti Hypocrite

    First time l herd the word shit in a love song ?

  31. Anfinity Warframe

    I don’t care what religion you celebrate. I don’t care what god you praise. I don’t care where your from.

    Your special just the way you are, and don’t let anyone tell you your not.

  32. Gwendolyn Ayiera

    Just passing by in Sep 18th😊. Reviewing the video and how my life would have been with the guy I liked, a Muslim. Being together meant compromising his family, and no one (maybe a few) can choose a gf over a family and that includes me. Maybe I'm wrong about the whole thing but can't we just let love be?😥😥

  33. packleader87

    Story telling

  34. packleader87

  46. Arishendraone Dianutama

    I hate kiss

  47. ildemaromeroVB

    So underrated....

  48. Be Enlightened

    Very "inclusive" but in Islam, men/women are forbidden from touching each other. Ultimately the video starts with a politically correct lie. This dishonesty can be seen replicated in the top-rated comment, that inaccurately implies that opposition to Islam = racism. Ask yourself why the need for dishonesty if your stance is correct?

  49. Laneys Beautyparlour

  89. Dwight Stewart

    Who's making these videos? They are INCREDIBLE!

  90. david jones

    This is unislamic

  91. jonAthAn I rwin

    who else understands the meaning of this video

  92. Brian Miler

    I was a Muslim for like 20 years, and I have always defended my religion of those who accuse Islam of being a religion of terrorism
    One day I decided to get to know a lot of my religion
    I started searching. I found things that shocked me. The Koran (book of Islam) is full of verses calling for jihad. It means killing non-Muslims. Muhammad's biography is full of jihad, slaughter and murder.
    If I spoke English well I would write a book about all the details of this religion and Muhammad's life In order to stop more people from falling into the trap of Islam
    And this is what terrorism is doing today. They do true Islam

    Olia Fiamay

    Just write it in your language. No need to be in English. If the book really published, whatever the language is, its going to be best seller. People will translate it to their own language.
    Well, if you could really write it.
