Recovery - James Arthur




Experience: You look yourself in the mirror and you don't like what you see. Do you give up? Or do you try to recover...

Music Video: The camera spins around a bleak, black and white James Arthur. But he's alone - the camera is more about him taking a good look at his own life, than about someone judging him from outside. Maybe the only thing missing is some action: the lyrics end soaring above and beyond a troubled past, but the video ends with James hunching back down into his stool.

Meaning of Recovery: The game eventually ends. And when it does, we all have to face the truth about what we are. It might be wonderful. It could be horrible. But no matter which way the scales tip, there will always be things to recover from. And we can't do that by running away from our errors, or trying to ignore them. We have to face them. That's what Recovery is about: finally sitting down and staring yourself in the face.

Ask Yourself: Do you know what you've done - good and bad - and who you are? Can you change?


LYRICS:

I don't want to play this game no more
I don't wanna play it
I don't want to stay round here no more
I don't wanna stay here
Like rain on a Monday morning
Like pain that just keeps on going on

Look at all the heyday keep on showing
I don't want to see that
Look at all the stones they keep on throwing
I don't want to feel that
Like Sun that will keep on burning
I used to be so discerning, oh

In my recovery
I'm a soldier at war
I have broken down walls
I defined
I designed
My recovery

In the sound of the sea
In the oceans of me
I defined
I designed
My recovery

Keep soaring,
Keep song-writing
My recovery

And I can hear the choirs keep on singing
Tell me what they're saying
And I can hear the phone
It keeps on ringing
I don't want to answer
I know that I used to listen
And I know I've become dismissive

In my recovery
I'm a soldier at war
I have broken down walls
I defined
I designed
My recovery

In the sound of the sea
In the oceans of me
I defined
I designed
My recovery

Keep soaring,
Keep song-writing
My recovery

In my recovery
I'm a soldier at war
I have broken down walls
I defined
I designed
My recovery

In the sound of the sea
In the oceans of me
I defined
I designed
My recovery

Keep soaring,
Keep song-writing
My recovery
