KELELA – Like A Tattoo (Sade Cover) (On Radio 1’s Piano Sessions) (Live)

I remember his hands
I wear it like a tattoo
Fourteen years he said
I couldn’t look into the sun
Broken by the burden of his youth
And thirsty for the distant river
Heavy with the burden of the truth
And the way the mountains looked
I still feel the chill
And thirsty for the distant river
He told me sweet lies of sweet loves
Broken by the burden
Hungry for life
Written all over my face
The light shot diamonds from his eyes
The war is still raging inside of me
As I reveal my shame to you
She saw him laying at the end of my gun
I wear it like a tattoo
I wear it like a tattoo
Hungry for life
And he spoke of his dreams
Like the scar of age
