Gregory Porter – Phoenix


Our love
Battered and worn
Tired and torn
You’ve grown tired of me

No love grows on its own
Left all alone
It’s inspired in me

Love fallen from grace
Can rise from the ashes
And fall into place

Love is just like a Phoenix
It can fly, it can glow
And it’s based upon the dreams that we’ve both been dreaming of
Promises, you know
Promise, you know
Love is just like a Phoenix
Let it sky, let it grow
This is just a thing that, oh, I’ve been dreaming of
The promises, you know
Promise, you know

In love
We’ve come so far
Look to the stars
Hold on to me

Take my wings
Hold on tight
Cling to my love
Hold on to me

A love fallen from grace
Can rise from the ashes
And fall into place

Love is just like a Phoenix
It can fly, it can glow
And it’s based upon the dreams that we’ve both been dreaming of
Oh, the promise, you know
Promise, you know
Love is just like a Phoenix
Let it sky, let it grow
This is just the sort of thing that we’ve both been hoping for
The promises, you know
Promise, you know

So let’s rise, rise, rise
Rise, rise, rise
Rise, rise, rise
Rise, rise, rise

Love is just like a Phoenix
It can fly, it can glow
And it’s based upon the dreams that we’ve both been dreaming of
And, whoa, the promises, you know
Promise, you know
Love is just like a Phoenix
Let it sky, let it grow
This is just what we’ve both been dreaming of
Oh, the promises, you know
Promise, you know

Rise, rise, rise
Rise, rise, rise
Rise, rise, rise
Rise, rise, rise
