James Bay-Hold Back The River

The year of 1990 brought in life a generation full of talents. Whoever believes that we are only made for living in our couch hasn't listened to Tom Odell, Hozier, Matt Corby and James Bay. James  grew up in Hitchin, Hertfordshire and after listening to Eric's Clapton "Layla", he took his guitar, clicked on YouTube and started to practice. Then he attented  Brighton Institute of Modern Music and the outcome is brilliant. Wonderful falsettos and earth edgy vocals like the ones of Mumford and Sons. James Bay has been named Critics Choice 2015 by the Brit Awards panel, who have previously earmarked Adele, Jessie J and Sam Smith early in their careers. He  Hold Back the River is a song that deals with break ups and tears. Check it out here on Lyrics On My Wall.



James Bay-Hold Back The River 

Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But think that I should have been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
But now we call against the tide
Those distant days are flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold

Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
