OPINION

This starts off a little intense but soon opens up into quite a catchy mid-tempo song. Loving the gospel influence and it’s just a shame that there can’t be a full gospel choir on the stage with him in Lisbon!

PREDICTION

I think this will qualify and could be a bit of a dark horse. I reckon it will finish quite high up the left hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

Lord, I’m gonna get so high tonight
I’m gonna let the floodgates open wide
I’m in open water, it’s what I need
Though I try to get you off my mind

And I get no sleep
I’m in too deep
I can’t let you leave

It wouldn’t be right letting you go running away from love
Ain’t nobody but you I can hold onto
So am I right giving my all making you stay tonight?
Ain’t nobody but you I can hold onto

Hey Lord, I’m gonna bring you back tonight, girl
Oh, you’re running circles round my mind
I think your words have been my problem
How can I search for someone new?
While I really want – you by my side

And I get no sleep
I’m in too deep
To let you leave

It wouldn’t be right letting you go running away from love
Ain’t nobody but you I can hold onto
So am I right giving my all making you stay tonight?
Ain’t nobody but you I can hold onto

Don’t make me tear my heart out
I’m shaking till I fall down
Don’t make me tear my heart out

Don’t make me tear my heart out
I’m shaking till I fall down
Don’t make me tear my heart out

It wouldn’t be right letting you go running away
Ain’t nobody but you I can hold onto
So am I right giving my all making you stay tonight?
Ain’t nobody but you I can hold onto

It wouldn’t be right letting you go running away from love
Ain’t nobody but you I can hold onto
Ain’t nobody but you
