John Newman – Love Me Again

Love Me Again” is the debut single by British soul singer and musician John Newman, from his upcoming debut studio album. The song was released as a digital download in Europe on 17 May 2013, except for the United Kingdom where it was released on 30 June 2013. The song was written by Newman and Steve Booker and produced by Booker and Mike Spencer. In an interview with Digital Spy, Newman was asked if he sensed that the song had something special about it in the studio. He said “Yeah. The guy I wrote it with, we turned around and had massive grins on our faces thinking, ‘There’s something good here’. But you just never know how good it is, you know?”. He was also asked if it was hard to write the lyrics about love and break-up, he said “No, it’s the only place where I really open up to somebody, though my music. I’m producing [the album] and writing it, it’s good. I like to keep a hold of everything.” Wikipedia®.

Sometimes the most extraordinary talent comes, seemingly, from nowhere. John Newman is only just 23 years old, but his voice and his songs cut through with a depth and a richness that’s way beyond a couple of decades and some change. A true force of nature, John writes, produces plays, performs and remixes his own music, as well as writing his own video scripts and designing his own clothes. This is a seriously larger than life character. In 2012, a year before his first solo material had even seen the light of day, John Newman scored a number 1 single, appeared on both Later with Jools, and the Christmas Top Of The Pops, and had written and sung on two of the biggest dance hits to storm the UK charts in years: Rudimental’s massive number one “Feel The Love” and the powerfully anthemic follow up “Not Giving In”. Those who enjoy life’s savage juxtapositions will appreciate he was in hospital recovering from surgery to remove a (non-cancerous) brain tumour when he heard the song on national radio for the first time. “I woke up and heard my song on the radio,” he smiles. “That was quite surreal. The nurse was quite fit too, so it was good to turn around and say, ‘That’s my tune!’” Shortly after leaving hospital “Feel The Love” went to number 1 in the charts.

John Newman – Love Me Again Lyrics:
Know I’ve done wrong, left your heart torn.
Is that what devils do?
Took you so long, where only fools gone.
I shook the angel in you!
Now I’m rising from the crowd.
Rising up to you!
Feel with all the strength I found.
There’s nothing I can’t do!

I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?

It’s unforgivable,
I stole and burnt your soul.
Is that what demons do, hey?
They rule the worst in me.
Destroy everything,
They blame on angels like you, hey!
Now I’m rising from the crowd.
Rising up to you!
Filled with all the strength I found.
There’s nothing I can’t do!

I need to know now, know now.
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now.
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now.
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now.
Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now
Can you love me again?
Uh, uh, uh, uh!
Oh, oh!

Told you once again,
Do this again, do this again, oh!
I told you once again,
Do this again, do this again, oh, oh!

I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
I need to know now, know now. Can you love me again?
