The ground is full of broken stones
The last leaf has fallen
I have nowhere to turn now
Not east not west
North or south
And all that's ahead of me
And everything I know
I know nothing so
So bring me home

Put me on a plate with petals and a fire
And send me out to sea
Turn my angry sword against my heart
And let me free
The dawn holds the heaviness of the night
I've heard the restless sighs and lovers lies
The brook, the beach and seen the devil's eyes
So bring me home

I've cried for the lives I've lost
Like a child in need of love
I've been so close but far away from god
My tears flow like a child's in need of love
I've cried the tears
So let the tide take me
I won't fight
I've cried the tears

The small step I need to take is a mountain
Stretched out like a lazy dog
Send me to slaughter
Lay me on the railway line
I'm far away from god
My tears flow like a child's in need of love
I've cried the tears
So build the fire and light the flame
Bring me home

Homophobia... always funny.
Her first album is still her best. I think it came out abut the same time as Suzanne Vega's debut album. Both were break throughs.

I love her since the 80ties! She is fantastic! {#Clap}{#Heartkiss}
Sade has been around for a very long time.  Sounds like NO other!
Some of this sounds like Department of Eagles (Sailing)
Just say no. PSD time.
Already waiting for her next album.
7  —>  8  Love the half-stop, stutter in the rhythm. 
Poppy yes, but oh so creamy goes her voice — always a great pleasure.  Thanks RP.

I believe she was born in Nigeria and moved to the UK at the age of 4.

One of the most universally appealing artists in the world; from Mexico to Singapore and Mauritius to Germany and more, everyone everywhere seems to know, love, and respect her sound. I admire how she and her group of talented musicians keep coming up with new rhythms to go with that incredibly sexy, sultry voice of hers. She's never made a dud recording, and some days, especially if a special gal is around, I can play her stuff all day, and it always goes well... Thanks, Sade, and RP!


 
love Sade, so as I scroll down her voice makes all the dull comments disappear and when a genius "speaks" it shines right through!
Cheers coloradojohn! 
Not one of Sade's best works. I found the entire album uninspiring.{#Rolleyes}
Good call!!
I like Sade, but she sounds tired in this song

I know a good therapist. A real smooth operator.
A voice like Sade's inoculates a song from any rating below 7.
I think that's the baseline.

Nice analogy, but I don't know if it's a bad thing that she has always had a "smooth" vocal style - it doesn't lack emotion to my ears.

I bought this CD on the strength of this song, and the innovative (for Sade) title track which has also been played on RP. Sadly, the rest of the CD is standard Sade - smooth, well-produced, but inconsequential and pretty much in the same vein as her previous works. These are the two best tracks on it, IMO. Sade fans will be pleased enough, I'm sure, and it's not a bad CD, just a bit...fluffy.

sade remember my acient years...
and she likes my ex gf too..

I love Peanut Sada Chicken

delicious
oh my...it's Sade...{#Sunny}

Another love connection for RP....have fun kids.

 
Verrah funny!  For your information, I took a bubble-bath with the window open so I could hear the rain. Alone. Dunno what Mr. Riley did.  And I bet I'm old enough to be your mother, black321, so don't call me a "kid." {#Roflol}

Smooooooooooth.

Wow. Excellent. love the variety of music we get here.
Hé, just checking and it turns out to be Sade indeed. I believe I tend to tike this song: sometimes here voice sounds so whining, but here it is appropriate, I think.
I saw her in concert about 15 years ago and she was super sexy and her voice is very underrated.  It's dance-off pants-off music!
I do not recall ever liking Sade, because of her 80's music. But as I hear her now on RP, I much more appreciate her voice, minus the 80's vibe that I associated with her. Thumbs up on her talent.

My opinion of Sade has risen in direct proportion to the use of auto-tune by almost everyone else.

Sade is one sound. Not a lot of dynamic range or variety. But the thing is, she's mastered it to perfection. The sound and style is hers, all hers and she owns it.

Agree totally with everything BUT "one sound."  She's got a distinctive voice, but I'm not quite sure this track is predictable (based on her previous body of work) AT ALL.

It's actually why I came to post ;-)  This is nice... and fresh.  Pure Sade.  Completely new.

That's a great point.  Most CDs, of course, have only one or two good songs.  Each of Sade's CDs are solid, from start to finish, with good songs, some of them great.  How many artists can we say that of?  Sade the band, and Folesade Adu, the lead singer and lyricist, are phenomenal.

I have always loved this woman's voice.
I really like the production on this song - but then again, I like Basement Jaxx.

Good lord, that was disappointing.
The last album had some lovely tracks, but this doesn't bode well for my perspective on Sade.
Wow, this cd isn't sounding that good.
She has a great voice, but the music sounds like little more than a drum machine on a loop.
Sade is back and better than ever ... I love love love this woman's sound!
ahhhhh that smooth voice. So nice to hear it again.
The entire CD is quite excellent!
...nice...


This is a smooth groove...  love it...




Very cool...  I am an old fan of Sade...  love it...

I've heard good things about this album.

Welcome back, yes?
Sade! So wonderful to hear her here on RP!
