Bonnie Raitt - Just Like That Lyrics



Bonnie Raitt - Just Like That Lyrics
Official




I watched him circle 'round the block
Finally stopped at mine
Took a while before he knocked
Like all he had was time
Excuse me, ma'am, maybe you can help
The directions weren't so clear
I'm looking for Olivia Zand
They said I might find her here

Well, I looked real hard and asked him
What she's got, he's looking for?

Said there's somethin' I think she'd want to know
And I let him in the door
It's not like me to trust so quick
Caught me by surprise
But somethin' about him gave me ease
Right there in his eyes

And just like that, your life can change
If I hadn't looked away
My boy might still be with me now
He'd be twenty-five today
No knife can carve away the stain
No drink can drown regret
They say Jesus brings you peace and grace
Well, he ain't found me yet

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na

Sat down and took a deeper breath
And looked right in my face
I heard about the son you lost
How you left without a trace
I've spent years just trying to find you
So I could finally let you know
It was your son's heart that saved me
And a life you gave us both

And just like that your life can change
Look what the angels send
I lay my head upon his chest
And I was with my boy again
Well, I spent so long in darkness
I never thought the night would end
But somehow, grace has found me
And I had to let him in

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na

Bonnie Raitt - Just Like That Video
(Show video at the top of the page)


• "Just Like That" is a song by American singer and multi-instrumentalist Bonnie Raitt and is the title track of her eighteenth studio album, Just Like That..., which was released on April 22, 2022.

• The song was written and produced by Raitt and lyrically details the story of a woman who is visited by the recipient of her son's heart, which he received in a life-saving organ donation operation.

• In an interview with American Songwriter, Raitt explained that her initial inspiration for the song came after she saw a human interest piece on the news in 2018 about a woman who donated her deceased child's organs and was meeting the man who received his heart. "I just lost it. It was the most moving and surprising thing. I wasn't expecting it. I vowed right then that I wanted to write a song about what that would take. Every time I hear about a family donating organs when their child has been killed, or there's some sort of sudden death — as if you're not in grief and shock enough — to have the view and the compassion and the love to be able to pay it forward like that is so incredible".

• "Just Like That" won both the Best American Roots Song and the all-genre Song of the Year at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards.
