Zayn - Room Under The Stairs Lyrics






Dreamin

One, two, three, go

Let me mean it, what I say
I been feeling
Yeah, I'm dreamin' my life away
Just need to level with sky
It seems to live on my mind

I been dreamin', feelin' this way
I been needing something else
I'll know what it is when I see it
Can't hold on anymore to this feeling

With no senses, ain't no sentence
Making sense of us
Did I mention life's intentions
Never steered me the right away
Oh, I been fallin'

I been dreamin', feelin' this way
I been needing something else
I'll know what it is when I see it
Can't hold on anymore to this feeling

Say I been falling in love and in the morning
Then I feel nothing again
Please don't let me forget falling in love, it's all good
And in the morning then you call me again
Don't call me again, don't call me again
When you're faded
No need to call me again
Oh, I been feelin'

I been dreamin', feelin' this way
I been needing something else
I'll know what it is when I see it
Can't hold on anymore to this feeling

I been dreamin', feelin' this way
I been needing something else
I'll know what it is when I see it
Can't hold on anymore to this feeling

What I Am

I've been drinking absinthe
I just did the math, it ain't adding up
I've had enough of
Running 'round this board game
You can know your own name
I won't give it up

Am I crazy?
Am I foolish?
Am I stupid
For playing these games with you?

If I told you I loved you
Would you say that it's f*cked up?
If I told you they're flying
Would you say that you looked up?
Don't take me for what I'm saying
Just take me for what I am
'Cause this is where I'm staying
My two feet are in the sand

I've been reading old shit
And I can't make sense of it
Ain't no conspiracy that can save me
Living in the moment feels good to me
'Til it hurts and I need somebody

Am I crazy?
Am I foolish?
Am I stupid
For playing these games with you?

If I told you I loved you
Would you say that it's f*cked up?
If I told you they're flying
Would you say that you looked up?
Don't take me for what I'm saying
Just take me for what I am
'Cause this is where I'm staying
My two feet are in the sand

Take me as I am
I'm tired of dancing around the point
Sharp and it is jagged
Like the shape of glass and it steals my voice

If I told you I loved you
Would you say that it's f*cked up?
If I told you they're flying
Would you say that you looked up?
Don't take me for what I'm saying
Just take me for what I am
'Cause this is where I'm staying
My two feet are in the sand

If I told you I loved you
Would you say that it's f*cked up?
If I told you they're flying
Would you say that you looked up?
Don't take me for what I'm saying
Just take me for what I am
'Cause this is where I'm staying
My two feet are in the sand

Grateful

I see your mother's shine in your eye
I know that you're mine and I'd cry
Telling you the things that are on my mind
When I think of you

Yeah, I'm grateful for you
Love it when the rain comes down
Love it when the waves calm down
Yeah, I'm grateful for you

These days I live to my depiction
Nowadays I'm finding no affliction
These days I'm needing no restriction
Feel like I'm finding new addiction

And it feels good
And I knew it would
When I'm telling this story
It's complicated
Some mishaps I've been mourning
But I'm grateful for it

Yeah, I'm grateful for you
Love it when the rain comes down (yeah, I love it)
Love it when the waves calm down (when the waves calm down)
Yeah, I'm grateful for you

These days I live to my depiction
Nowadays I'm finding no affliction
These days I'm needing no restriction
Feel like I'm finding new addiction

Things change and I'm okay with what I'm not
It feels wasteful to be hateful
I'll be grateful for what I got
Things change and I'm okay with what I'm not
Feels wasteful to be hateful
I'll be grateful with what I got

These days I live to my depiction (yeah, I'm grateful)
Nowadays I'm finding no affliction (yeah, I'm grateful)
These days I'm needing no restriction (for you)
Feel like I'm finding new addiction (yeah, I'm grateful)
These days I live to my depiction (yeah, I'm grateful)
Nowadays I'm finding no affliction (yeah, I'm grateful)
These days I'm needing no restriction (for you)
Feel like I'm finding new addiction

Yeah, I'm grateful for you

Alienated

No two people are the same
Stand beside you, but just far enough away
Last night we were drinking
Tried to think away the pain
Made that age-old mistake
Tried to disconnect my body
From my soul, from my soul
See, I feel alright already on my own

Can you let me be
Intoxicated on my own?
Do I need to answer
Or right my wrongs?
Am I home if I don't know this place?

And I've been feeling alienated
On my spaceship alone
Say goodbye to the past
Leave it all with a laugh
'Cause you always was right all along

Know my reasons for the pain
But if you brought it in front of me
I know I'd do it all again
Call them beer can gains
I know from all the years
That my feelings never change

Can you let me be
Intoxicated on my own?
Do I need to answer
Or right my wrongs?
Am I home if I don't know this place?

And I've been feeling alienated
On my spaceship alone
Say goodbye to the past
Leave it all with a laugh
'Cause you always was right all along

Did the winds make the noise of change?
Can the wings on your skin help you fly away?
'Cause it's always raining
And the clouds always grey when you're away

Yeah, I've been feeling alienated
On my spaceship alone
Say goodbye to the past (ayy, ayy)
Leave it all with a laugh
'Cause you always was right all along

All along
Say goodbye to the past
Say goodbye
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah, ah-ah

My Woman

Love me partly, leave me tonight
Say don't fall in pieces, I might
Just for the fun of it
Let my mind just run with it tonight

Since the Stone Age
I been stoned in
Living lonely on my own
Then she came along
Made me believe
Made me believe I wouldn't leave her
I'm finished wasting my time
I'm living blurred like those lines

I fill my cup to forget her
Known it from the getup
This is my demise
My demise is what's holding me
Grabbed a hold and took control of me
In my mind

Love me partly, leave me tonight
Say don't fall in pieces, I might
Just for the fun of it
Let my mind just run with it tonight

Where did you wanna go?
Where did you stay last night?
Save my mind, save my time
Yeah, I know I've been holding on to something
For so long with no eyes
Yeah, I been blind
I been blind

I fill my cup to forget her
I've known it from the get up
This is my demise

Love me partly, leave me tonight
Say don't fall in pieces, I might
Just for the fun of it
Let my mind just run with it tonight

Love me partly, leave me tonight
Say don't fall in pieces, I might
Just for the fun of it
Let my mind just run with it tonight

Just for the fun of it tonight

How It Feels

I've been getting old standing by the river
Watch the water move but I don't move with her

Shivers down my spine
Never forget to remind me I'm alive

'Til I let go of this moment
Something holdin' me to this place
I've been breaking, always faking
I'm just lying to your face
And I can't tell you how it feels

Can you tell me just one thing?
Can you give me a reason to stay?
'Cause the feelings I'm harboring
Don't seem to see the light of day

Shivers down my spine
Never forget to remind me I'm alive

'Til I let go of this moment
Something holdin' me to this place
I've been breaking, always faking
I'm just lying to your face
And I can't tell you how it feels

Bring me to my knees
I begged and pleaded
I asked to leave
But you insisted on staying
And breaking my heart
Breaking my heart
Breaking my heart
Breaking my heart, yeah

'Til I let go of this moment
Something holdin' me to this place
I've been breaking, always faking
I'm just lying to your face
And I can't tell you how it feels

'Til I let go of this moment
Something holdin' me to this place

Stardust

Pretty Christmas on a cardboard cup
I wait outside for you to pick me up
There's something different in the way you touch
Different in the way you love
Different in the way you love

Feels like stardust
Floating all around us
Shooting right across a big black sky
Feels like stardust
Falling all around us
Funny how it found us
Maybe I
Maybe I

I found perfume in a magazine, whoa
Far-off places in a moonlit scene, ayy
And I love to be there with you (I)
And I love to be there with you too
'Cause you make anywhere at all

Feel like stardust
Floating all around us
Shooting right across a big black sky
Feels like stardust
Falling all around us
Funny how it found us
Maybe I
Maybe I

Feels like stardust
Floating all around us
Shooting right across a big black sky
Feels like stardust
Falling all around us
Funny how it found us
Maybe I
Maybe I

Gates Of Hell

So f*cked I can't feel my face
Know a couple people might call me a disgrace
But f*ck them, I ain't looking up
Ain't never been one to give a second look

I, I don't like you very much
But I keep putting up with your shit
I don't like you very much
But I keep putting up with your shit

Yeah, we drift away like islands
And I wanna float on this wave
A different day, time, and meaning, yeah
And I know I'd do it all the same

I, I don't like you very much
But I keep putting up with your shit
I don't like you very much
But I keep putting up with your shit

You always come to mind
When I think to myself
What could have been
If we'd be living in Utopia
You always come to mind

I, I don't like you very much
But I keep putting up with your shit
I don't like you very much
But I keep putting up with your shit

Birds On A Cloud

So when I wake up today
Hoping I don't feel the same
As I did last night, shitfaced
Not knowing which way is up
Or down or sideways
I'm frowning anyway

Please give me one more day of happiness
I need it, I need it
Please give me one more day of happiness
I need it, I need it
Please give me one more day
I need it, I need it

Wake up and bake up again
Fight and hope we make up again
Know when something's wrong
But something inside tells me it's all okay
Even if it's strange, it's our love

Please give me one more day of happiness
I need it, I need it
Please give me one more day of happiness
I need it, I need it

When I think of things lost
Think I fell off
Took my foot off the pedal
Think it's all suss
Ain't one to make a fuss
I don't need any medals

Please give me one more day of happiness
I need it, I need it
Please give me one more day of happiness
I need it, I need it
Please give me one more day

From this place I'm running from
I hope I kept my grace
From this place I'm running from
I hope I kept my grace
From this place I'm running from
I know I can't escape
I can't escape

Concrete Kisses

All I wanted was a cup of coffee
I got something else, or so it seems
Concrete kisses on my face and forehead
From where I fell last night on the street

When I fell hard
All these scars on my skin
Where you left marks
When I fell hard
All these scars on my skin
Where you left marks

This might not sound right, but it's alright, it's real
I'm finding my way on the highway this year

Got a big old cup of shit, told me to drink it
Middle finger to what you believe
Beginnings have a habit of ending
Purgatory, I'm stuck here in-between, mm

This might not sound right, but it's alright, it's real
I'm finding my way on the highway this year

Why does this pain feel so good?
Pumping my brain like drunk blood
Feeling this way, there's no such thing as happy endings
See on my face, my heart changed
Loving this place I've created
Realized that I'm too good for games we've been playing

This might not sound right, but it's alright, it's real
I'm finding my way on the highway this year

False Starts

Fast car, fast heart, trouble in my brain
Big dreams, false starts and I know I've changed
Don't want the things we can't have
Watching my life just roll past
Old rooms, new paint
Still it looks the same
Sad thoughts, bad luck
With no one to blame
They say that trouble don't last
Sometimes the pain makes me laugh, ohh

It's hard but it only gets harder
Tonight we can go it alone

No one ever has to know
No one ever has to know
No one ever has to know
But I know I have to go
Yeah, I'm shakin', my heart's naked
Out of control

There's no more time, gotta get my way
What do you want? We don't have to stay
Trust me, you're not gonna crash
They say that trouble don't last

It's hard but it only gets harder
Tonight, we can go it alone

No one ever has to know
No one ever has to know
No one ever has to know
But I know I have to go
Yeah, I'm shakin', my heart's naked
Out of control

Before I leave a part of me behind
Before I leave a part of me behind
Before I leave a part of me behind

No one ever has to know
No one ever has to know
(Before I leave a part of me behind)
No one ever has to know
But I know I have to go
Yeah, I'm shakin', my heart's naked
Out of control

The Time

Yesterday just came and went
And if today, I wake up late, I won't forgive myself
'Cause time's running its own game
And I've rolled the dice too many times in my head

Never fell for the fame thing
They fell in love with the same thing
Let me know when the rain ends
See, all I need is you

Ain't it special?
Ain't it precious
The time that we have?
When I'm laid in your bed
And you tell me you love me, ooh

Colors back in all my days
Build the structure, let it break
As long as it's good for your brain
Lessons learned is what I've gained
Feed your family, forget the fame
I'm doing it now for a second name

Never fell for the fame thing
They fell in love with the same thing
Let know when the rain ends
See, all I need is you

Ain't it special?
Ain't it precious
The time that we have?
When I'm laid in your bed
And you tell me you love me, ooh

And I could cry when you tell me that you love me
When you're doing things you shouldn't be
And I lie for you
And I could cry when you tell me that you love me
And I'd die for you
If you asked me to

Ain't it special?
Ain't it precious
The time that we have?
When I'm laid in your bed
And you tell me you love me, ooh

When you tell me you love me
When you tell me you love me
When you tell me you love me

Something In The Water

Must be something in the water
I can feel you in the atmosphere
Don't say much until we speak in tongues, one on one
Swear you're flowing through my blood

Must be something in the (water)
Am I going out my mind?
Said it was the last, last two or three times
Spent the whole day until we woke up last night
Nothing's making sense no more
Caught a glimpse of your gaze, I was frozen
Got a grip on my heart, now it's stolen
Had a lock on the door, now it's opened up

Must be something in the water
I can feel you in the atmosphere
Don't say much until we speak in tongues, one on one
Swear you're flowing through my blood
Must be something in the water
On the edge until you pull me in
Got me dripping in that old-school love, pour me some
Feelings got me going numb

(Water)
I might let myself sink
Deeper 'til the bottom, can't hear myself think
'Cause all I want hear is your voice
Pull me outta that void
It's an instinct, I don't have a choice, yeah
You got my heart doing things it don't do
But I'm not gon' fight it
You're in control, let you show me what to do
I'm not afraid

Must be something in the water
I can feel you in the atmosphere
Don't say much until we speak in tongues, one on one
Swear you're flowing through my blood
Must be something in the water
On the edge until you pull me in
Got me dripping in that old-school love, pour me some
Feelings got me going numb

Shoot At Will

Just took a drag, oh, ain't it a drag?
When you feel like history's pulling you back
Yeah, I've been running bare feet in a field
Yeah, a dream gone bad
'Cause it feels like history's pulling me back

I stayed at the bar late, had a good time
'Cause I had some bullshit up on my mind
Roll with the tide
When I look at her, all I see is you
When you look at her, do you see me too?

Does it not occur to you?
Do you not prefer the truth?
I was in love with you
No, I didn't show the proof

Just took a drag, oh, ain't it a drag?
When you feel like history's pulling you back
Yeah, I've been running bare feet in a field
Yeah, a dream gone bad
'Cause it feels like history's pulling me back
'Cause it feels like history's pulling me back

I hold my hands up for the firing squad
And if you want, you can take it all
I don't really know what I can give no more
Shoot at will
Because she shoots to kill
Yeah, and I'm dying inside

Fuchsia Sea

I'm tired of the grey
I'm sick of the pain
I'm tired of the pain
I'm sick of the grey

I gotta love this feeling
To keep myself from dreaming about something else
And you kept me entertained
'Cause I saw the flame and still walked through it

I bet you knew it
That I would do it if I'm given the chance

Ferocious devotion
I can't keep it up, I'm falling into motion
Ferocious devotion
I can't keep it up, I'm falling into motion

Just let me fall into motion
How can you break when you're broken to begin with?
I can't see it with you, I can't live with you
Don't you hear me when I'm talking?

I bet you knew it
That I would do it if I'm given the chance

Ferocious devotion
I can't keep it up, I'm falling into motion
Ferocious devotion
I can't keep it up, I'm falling into motion

I'm tired of the grey
I'm sick of the pain
I'm tired of the pain
I'm sick of the grey
