  • Francis And The Lights May I Have This Dance Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified

    4:11

    Francis and the Lights is the musical creation of Francis 'Farewell Starlite,' a pop/r&b venture without any official members outside of Starlite himself. After a string of EP’s from 2007 to 2013, they released their debut album Farewell, Starlite in 2016. A little under a year later, they were signed to Kanye West’s GOOD Music. Coinciding with their new deal, Francis and the Lights released a remix of their album track “May I Have This Dance,” now with a verse from Chance The Rapper. The song immediately took off, logging over 12 million streams on Spotify and 5.9 million views on its accompanying YouTube video. “May I Have This Dance (Remix)” is Francis trying to make things right with a lover through music, and sharing his vulnerability in the process.

    Lyrics:

    Nothing really is what I thought
    I waited on a kiss from the sky but it won’t touch me
    But I don’t need to be amazing
    I don’t need to be amazing

    I believe in you, and you are my proof
    that everything gets better and that love can be true
    I believe in you
    I believe in you

    I wanted for the world to love me more,
    for everyone to call and ask me how I’m feeling
    But I don’t need to be amazing
    No one’s gotta be amazing

    I believe in you, and you are my proof
    that everything gets better and that love can be true
    I believe in you
    I believe in you

    (Crazy how one thing leads to another thing)
    I wish that I were happy all of the time
    The weight of everything makes it harder to find,
    but it’s lovely to find (lovely to find)

    I believe in you, and you are my proof
    that everything gets better and that love can be true
    I believe in you
    I believe in you

    (Francis):
    If it’s said and done, it’s said and done (yeah)
    Say what you want about it
    And if you wanna make your clothes
    then you might have to wait your turn
    I know you wanna sell your clothes
    But you don’t wanna sell your soul
    For five dollars
    Don’t give it away, they don’t deserve it
    Yeah they come and they go, what’s a life worth?
    No matter what you do, no matter who you roll with

    I believe in you, and you are my proof
    that everything gets better and that love can be true
    I believe in you
    I believe in you

  • Francis and the Lights - Never Go Back

    3:35

    Directed by Jake Schreier

    there's two francis's in the final shot - can u find them both?

    made possible by Ye, in most conceivable and tangible ways.

    Do whatever you want with this piece, including, and not limited to, putting your name on it, selling it, and keeping all the money.

    ...and when I’m in Benny’s pool
    I like to think about the Whales
    how they were walking on land, breathing air,
    then they went back to the water,
    but they still breath air!
    ...maybe we could go back too...
    we can never “go back” tho,
    we can never go back in time.
    -Francis

    LYRICS
    please stop saying etcetera
    tell me every last thing he said to you
    i'd be lying if i said that it matters at all
    when i'm lying here; lying here next to you
    see it was cold and i'm sorry i got you up
    and i really didn't want to upset you
    i was saying in the car i'll make it all gone
    but i guess i didn't know it'd affect me so

    oh, please stop saying etcetera
    tell me every last thing he said to you
    i'll be sorry in the morning i got so riled up
    man i really didn't want to upset you
    i'll be sitting on the floor right next to you
    so you really are sorry and it's your fault
    i'll be sitting on the phone, afraid to exhale
    and i really can't stand how you're giving in always...

    what will we do from here?
    what will we do?
    and will be happy?
    really?
    when we wake up...
    will we wake up?

    oh stop saying etc
    tell me every last thing he said to ya
    i believed everything you said before
    but i really don't see how he set you up
    well i guess he really set u up
    cause you really couldn't stand to let me know
    you'll be sorry later on; your mask will fall off
    and i really can't stand how you're giving in always...

    what will we say, to them?
    what will we say?
    and will we be happy?
    really?
    when we wake up...
    will we wake up?
    and what if we're dreaming?
    i mean really?
    when we wake up....
    will we wake up?

    Lyrics:
    Why don’t you tell me you love me too?
    Why did you sell me on that thing you do?
    Why every single December,
    I’m waiting on you?
    Why you just looking me over?

    Giving me why’s,
    Keep giving me why’s no,
    Tell you enough,
    Then you give me one more,
    Heavenly eyes,
    I’m dying for,
    Why you just looking me over?
    Look what you’re doing to me!

    I don’t mind,
    Look what you’re doing to me,
    Ooh your love,
    It’s better than I remember,
    And why did you leave off
    Me loving you?
    Why you just looking me over?
    Look what you’re doing to me
    And look what you’ve done,

    Why don’t you don’t you just notice,
    And why did you leave off
    You’re taking me over,
    Me loving you?
    Why you just looking me over?
    Heavenly eyes

    Heavenly eyes,
    Scope,
    You said none left when I gave you hope,
    I light up,
    When you come home,
    If you leave you’ll be sorry,

    Giving me eyes,
    Keep giving me eyes no,
    (Keep giving me eyes no)
    Tell you enough,
    Then you give me one more,
    Heavenly eyes,
    (Heavenly eyes)

    Hope everyone is doing okay this Holiday season. I covered this song that Chance The Rapper did with Francis and the Lights a while back and decided to put it together during a flight to Wisconsin. I do not own the rights to this song, so it will not be on streaming anywhere outside of YouTube. Let me know what you think.

    Explanation: I've always loved Francis and thought he was super underrated within the music industry. I wanted to make a short compilation album that showed off his skills and the people he's collaborated with including: Bon Iver, Chance the Rapper, and Kanye West. Only two songs had changes made to them: Take Me To The Light has Chance's verse added back to the original release version and Are We Finished? used the audio clip from THANK YOU.
