#LyricsMatter: Episode 4 Snoh Aalegra wants you around

In the number one R&B Song “I Want You Around” performed by Snoh Aalegra, the beautiful singer croons:

“It’s not that I don’t want you here (yeah, yeah)
It’s somethin’ ’bout the way you stare into my eyes
I know that I don’t make things clear (no)
I fall for you every time I try to resist you
We can get away
Palm trees, beach views
Ordinary day
All I wanna hear is Innervisions on replay
And sit right next to you, you
I try not to show how I feel about you
Thinkin’ we should wait, but we don’t really want to
I just wanna get away
And sit right next to you, you
I don’t wanna kiss you
Yeah, I just wanna feel you
Feel you
I want you around (around)
Around
I want you around (around)
Around (’round, ’round, ’round)
I want you around
Around
I want you around
Around, around, ’round, ’round
Come through, I think I need you here (what)
I swear it’s hard to keep these feelings to myself
Now you’re the one I’m thinkin’ of
My higher ground, my rocket love
Fuck gravity, I’d rather stay up here, but
We can get away
Palm trees, beach views
Ordinary day
All I wanna hear is Innervisions on replay
And sit right next to you, you
I try not to show how I feel about you
Thinkin’ we should wait, but we don’t really want to
I just wanna get away
And sit right next to you, you
I don’t wanna kiss you
Yeah, I just wanna feel you
Feel you
I want you around (around)
Around
I want you around (around)
Around (’round, ’round)
I want you around (know that I want you, yeah, yeah)
Around
I want you around (I want you around, yeah, yeah)
Around, around, ’round, ’round”

I Want You Around lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group

Snoh Aalegra is like a breath of fresh air. She’s singing about raw emotion. Vulnerable and smooth she admits that she really loves being around this new flame. She’s trying to take things slowly but neither of them want to and it has nothing to do with the physical aspect of their desires. She just wants to be near the energy that feeds her.

This song is beautiful and makes me hopeful.

I don’t really have much more to say about this one. It’s straight forward, open and honest.

I noticed there’s a lot of songwriters on this. It was a beautiful collaboration! Well done team!

Well I guess that’s it for this Music Head who is all about the lyrics.

I want y’all around.
