Lianne La Havas – Age

Lianne La Havas (born 23 August 1989 as Lianne Charlotte Barnes is an English folk and soul singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She was nominated for the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll. Her debut album Is Your Love Big Enough? was awarded the title of iTunes Album of The Year 2012. La Havas was born in London, England to a Greek father and Jamaican mother. She was raised in Tooting and Streatham, spending the majority of her time with her grandparents following her parents’ separation as a child. La Havas began singing at seven and cites her parents’ diverse musical tastes as having the biggest influence on her music. Her mother played with Jill Scott and Mary J. Blige, and her father, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, taught her the basics of guitar and piano. Lianne wrote her first song at the age of 11, but did not learn to play the guitar until she was 18 years old. Lianne attended Norbury Manor Business and Enterprise College for Girls in Croydon, where she studied art A-level, and planned to take an art foundation course; however, she left college to pursue a career in music full-time. Although born Lianne Barnes, her stage name is an adaptation derived from her Greek father, Henry Vlahavas’s, surname. Wikipedia®.

Lianne La Havas – Age

Lianne La Havas – Age Lyrics:
Why do I love him? He dont love back
When I call his name, he turns his back
The weather is growing cold
And I want him back again

I kinda know this other guy but hes rather
Old enough to be my father
So hes not the one for me
Cause I fancy younger men

Im at a loss
Not a coincidence he left me because
My older man
Was ready to love me like the woman that I am
Oooh

So is it such a problem that hes old?
As long as he does whatever hes told
Im glad that its just my heart that he stole
And left my dignity alone

When in Rome we landed our first kiss
I slurred my words but he pretended not to notice
And then he sat down to play
My heart sang a symphony
So far, so swimmingly
And then I got up to find my fish in that sea
Weve come so far
So who gives a damn about the ages we are
Oooh

So is it such a problem that hes old?
As long as he does whatever hes told
Im glad that its just my heart that he stole
And left my dignity alone

So is it such a problem that hes old?
As long as he does whatever hes told
I know Im gonna survive the December cold

With somebody to retrieve my long lost soul
With somebody to retrieve my long lost soul.
