What My World Sounds Like: Maxwell

Maxwell. Love him. The other day, I found myself listening to his Unplugged album and wondering when he was going to release his new album BLACKsummers’snight. All I had was this snippet of “Pretty Wings” that I love so much, I gladly play on repeat until it’s played a good twenty times or so. Imagine the grand surprise in store when I found the video and saw that the single was available for download on iTunes. It cost $1.29, which prompted a “what the…?” but I still bought it. That dollar was spent well. 🙂

Enjoy both the video and the song.

Time will bring the real end of our trial
One day there’ll be no remnants, no trace,
No residual feelings within you
One day you won’t remember me.

Your face will be the reason I smile
But I will not see what I cannot have forever
I’ll always love you.
I hope you feel the same.

Oh, you played me dirty, your game was so bad
You toyed with my affliction
Had to fill out my prescription for the remedy
I had to set you free.

Away from me
To see clearly
The way that love can be
when you are not with me
I had to leave
I had to live
I had to lead
I had to live

If I can’t have you
Let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around.

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings. Pretty wings around.

I came wrong you were right
Transformed your love into like.
Baby believe me, I’m sorry I told you lies.
I turned day into night
Sleep till I die a thousand times
Ah, I should’ve showed you
Better nights, better times, better days
And I miss you more and more

If I can’t have you
Let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around.

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings. Pretty wings around.

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings. Pretty wings around.
