Next To Me - Emeli Sande


The Experience:

When the money's spent and all my friends are vanished, and I can't seem to find no help or love for free, I know there's no need for me to panic, cause I'll find him, I'll find him next to me. We all need friendship, because we all reach a point where we can't hack it on our own...

Music Video:
Light and dark alternate back and forth while Emeli sings about friendship and love that don't waver in the darkness.

My Take:
Everything that can go wrong in a friendship can be summed up in one word: selfishness. If you prefer drinking, playing, money, fame, or power to friendship... you're no friend. You'll disappear when the fun does. Too many of us go through life without ever finding a true friend. But we can at least be one...

Ask Yourself:
Are you there for your friends even when all you can do is wipe away the tears? When there's nothing in it for you?  


LYRICS:

You won't find him drinkin' at the tables
Rolling dice and staying out 'til three
You won't ever find him being unfaithful
You will find him, you'll find him next to me

You won't find him trying to change the devil
For money, fame, for power, out of grief
You won't ever find him where the rest go
You will find him, you'll find him next to me

[Hook]
Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
You will find him, you'll find him next to me

[Emeli Sande]
When the money's spent and all my friends have vanished
And I can't seem to find no help or love for free
I know there's no need for me to panic
Cause I'll find him, I'll find him next to me

When the skies are grey and all the doors are closing
And the rising pressure makes it hard to breathe
Well, all I need is a hand to stop the tears from falling
I will find him, will find him next to me

[Hook]
Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
You will find him, you'll find him next to me

When the end has come and buildings falling down fast
When we spoilt the land and dried up all the sea
When everyone has lost their heads around us
You will find him you'll find him next to me

Never in my life have I met someone like him
I'm blown away by his love for me
If you ever wonder where it is you'll find him
You will find him, you will find him next to me

[Hook]
Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
You will find him you'll find him next to me

Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
Next to me ooh, ooh
You will find him you'll find him next to me
