She’s purely enchanting…

emeli_sande_pink_bg11There are those moments when you are just quiet, still even, and all of a sudden a sound so in tune with your silence speaks to you. It breaks into your reverie like a twisting tornado filled with tinkling beauty and a sparkling presence. That joyful noise, for me, was a voice that came to my ears in the form of a beautiful woman named Emile Sandé, a British lass who has touched me with her hit song Next to Me. She’s a tour de force who hit the American music scene like a bolt of lightning, perking up ears with every word passing through her lips. This gorgeous gal, with soul resting comfortably in her pocket, has been on repeat in my home, my car, and on my iPhone ever since I first heard her. So, here is the music video and lyrics (taken directly from her website) in case you haven’t yet been touched by this windstorm…go ahead, get swept away.

You won’t find him drinking under tables
Rolling dice or staying out ’til three
You won’t ever find him be unfaithful
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me
You won’t find him tryna change the devil
For money, fame, for power out of greed
You won’t ever find him where the rest go
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me

Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me

When the money’s spent and all my friends have vanished
And I can’t seem to find no help or love for free
I know there’s no need for me to panic
Cos I’ll find him, I’ll find him next to me
When the skies are grey and all the doors are closing
And the rising pressure makes it hard to breathe
When all I need’s a hand to stop the tears from falling
I will find him, I’ll find him next to me

Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
I will find him, I’ll find him next to me

When the end has come and buildings falling down fast
When we’ve spoilt the land and dried up all the sea
When everyone has lost their heads around us
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me

Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
You will find him, you’ll find him next to me
Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
Next to me – wooh hooo
You will find him, you’ll find him next to meemeli_sande_black_white_bg11

      No need to bug your apartment when I have a direct link to your brain! MWAHAHAHA!! 😉 LOL It is nice to hear positive lyrics about a relationship but I am also torn because the song could mean her relationship with a higher power too. From the comments I’ve read on various sites, a lot of people are wondering the same thing. Whether she is referring to God or a romantic mate. Beautiful either way.

        Exactly, I think it’s both…the lyrics could be talking about a higher power, but how it starts out sounds like a relationship…Direct link to my brain always my love 🙂

    I have loved this song since I first heard it. It first sounded like Celine Dion to me, then thankfully due to my XM I was able to see the name of this amazing artist. This is the same girl who sang with my Amber on American Idol. LOve her and the song.
