Misch, Tom - Water Baby Lyrics




[Tom Misch:]
'Cause I was born a water baby
Swimming with these times
The grooves that turn the grey to sunshine
'Cause I would live through days that break me
Swimming with these times
The grooves that turn the grey to sunshine

[Loyle Carner:]
I'm still tryna write the story as I see it
The trouble is when I say it, they don't believe it
The reckon I only say it but I don't mean it
I'm tryna tell 'em I'd only say it if I can feel it
'Cause money's tight, maybe tighter than it was before
I'm helping out on the mortgage I really can't afford
Family breaking north, I cover the trips abroad
Shakin', I'm making another loss on another tour
But what I done it for?
To see my mother in the sun abroad
I run into trouble, it was coming for
My little brother got the hunger for
All the exact same pain
That makes the rain my stomach pour
So let me paint it broader
This for any dude who's got a daughter
Living off lines that your papa taught her
Ain't got no time to be coming for you
Go with the flow of this running water

Go with the flow of this
Go with the flow of this
Go with the flow of this

[Tom Misch:]
Don't you worry
Two leaves won't grow the same
And people might forget your name
Doesn't matter if they do
Don't you hurry
When the hot coffee pours will stain
And when the Uber left you in the rain
Your time will come around to you
Despite the stress of spending so much time alone
'Cause this ge-o-gra-phy is keeping me at home
And I don't know the way to go
I move with the flow of this running water, this running water

'Cause I was born a water baby
Swimming with these times
The grooves that turn the grey to sunshine
'Cause I would live through days that break me
Swimming with these times
The grooves that turn the grey to sunshine

[Loyle Carner:]
Go with the flow of this running water

    They put this $#!+ down! Funky ass Brits on an entirely different level. Im officially a fan. Shout out to the Crusaders for that sample from The Street Life LP; the record was in my Pops Collection. They really upped it with the rap, lyrics, hook, drums, & layered melodies. 👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾👍🏾💥💥💥💥💥

    Greg White

    Totally agree, great update of The Crusaders My Lady

  74. Henrik Sahlén

    again....rap shit....cmon....enugh torturing pretty tunes with that crap!!!! enough is enough!!!

  80. Percy 161

    i think i am gay.

  81. Sterling Smith

    Tom i have literally binge listened to every track you have ever released and all the mix tapes everything. Not only has every song you made i liked but i loved majority of them. No artist has ever done that with my taste not even the greats. This song Water Baby is my favorite of all of them and Movie. I love your collabs just as much. You have inspired me in a way no other artist has. I had dreams of doing music because i loved making it and now it is starting to burn for the first time in a while. Thanks for sharing your gift and one day would love to work with you.

  82. Dave Becker

    Honestlly, it really pisses me off how in 2018/19 this isn't a major hit but it wouldve done 10 years ago. Great sampled hook, bass line, hook, rapping bit, lead vocals, professional musicianship, top not production! Can people in the music industry stop sucking dicks to get their shite music advertised, played bought and commodofied?! Most people will listen to any old shit

  83. JordanSoFlyLogs

    3:06 feels like my life right now, running through an icy forest finding my way

    caprice.t

    We in this together ✌🏽🙏🏼🤞🏼

  84. Erekle Iantbelidze

    fabulous sound and a great duo. After you collaborate with anderson paak guess the new era of R&B + fusion  music will be exploded ))

  85. Sen 0

    👌👌👌

  86. Darrell Dunson

    That's Glasper at the end

  87. zZAD

    Maravilloso

  88. Eve Smith

    Whats the name of the beat?? Im sure this is from GTA IV

    Simon Green

    Tom makes all his own beats (occasionally covers but still puts his own twist on them) so I think this is just a Misch original. I would be suprised if he sampled it..

    Simon Green

    Shoot, I was wrong... it samples My Lady by the Crusaders. Enjoy.

  89. Nisa A

    Love this song so much ❤️

  90. Tyler Forest

    Never ever is one sort of disappointed with Tom's work, and this piece with Loyle Carner is a kick that make you feel light, positive and on your own way. Much love in return from France to dear Tom and all of you folks from all over who enjoy his neat music and mood ;-).

  91. Joyce Shayoult

    Eu não tenho palavras pra descrever o quanto amo essa música e como viajo nesse vídeo. 🇧🇷🇧🇷❤❤❤❤❤👏👏👏👏
