By Wanderlust Photo courtesy of Paradigm Talent Agency Corinne Bailey Rae is a England-born soulful singer whose seminal hit, “Put Your Records On” was the indisputable ballad of the mid-2000s. She’s received two Grammy awards, two MOBO (Music of Black Origin) awards, and in 2016 NPR called her most recent album, The Heart Speaks in Whispers, “boundary-defying, epic music.” We can’t wait to groove with Corinne in Wanderlust O’ahu this year, where she’ll be headlining the main stage on Saturday night. To make the wait a bit shorter, we’ve collected this list of our favorite of her most poetic lyrics. Know some we’re missing? Let us know in the comments and we’ll add it.

On Personal Growth Maybe sometimes we’ve got it wrong, but it’s alright The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same… You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow. – Put Your Records On Don’t you know that, that patience is a virtue (yes it is), and life is a waiting game…don’t you know that, peace must be nurtured – Seasons Change Life’s shining around you Don’t miss a day // If you’re caught up in the chase You hold your happiness away from you Stop where you are // Under fading stars This is the world we’ve made There is no better place, it’s true Light a fire where you are – Stop Where You Are The crowd is so loud It feels like they’ll drown you out And the waves crash down And there’s chaos all around Don’t let your mind rest on violence… The skies will break for you, my friend… Cause the heart speaks in whispers – The Skies Will Break Photo courtesy of Paradigm Talent Agency On Relationships I want you to travel with me Lay loose and let your mind go free Show you things that you’ve never seen But you just got to go with me – Closer Till then I wasn’t alive, I longed for you like the lovesick moon pulls the tide. So I peeled off my skin, I just slipped right in And I become alive. – Diving For Hearts On Connection to the Divine You can keep it all locked up in your leaden chest Or you can lay mouth open on the water’s edge But all your angels and your God will stitch and wash you – I Would Like to Call It Beauty We travel into the night We cross galaxies // We run we leap and we fly It’s not hard ‘cause we’re called by a music we don’t understand And we’re drawn by the glow of a fire I’m electricity // Burning bright energy Catch me on the 1,2,3 I can do anything // Taken by dreams – Taken By Dreams Don’t miss Corinne’s performance at Wanderlust O’ahu 2019!
