I Got U - Duke Dumont ft. Jax Jones




The Experience: Is happiness just a feeling? Or is true happiness based on solid real-life experiences and achievements?

Music Video: On a dreary rainy day, a loner gets a long-awaited package that changes his life... or not.

Meaning of I Got U: Nothing matters if I have you. You are my life, and that's more important that what I do, what I gain or what I lose. Beautiful. Except that I Got U isn't about love, at least not once you take the music video into consideration. There, virtual reality is the only thing the protagonist hast. He's not living for anyone except himself. It's a great play by Duke Dumont, who gives us a perfect example of what love isn't - the video - along with lyrics that explain what love is.

Ask Yourself: What makes you happier? Love or selfishness?


LYRICS:

(You got me...)

Ask me what I did with my life
I spent it with you
If I lose my fame and fortune
(Really don't matter)
As long as I got you, baby

Clap your hands y'all it's alright [x3]
As long as I got you, baby
Clap your hands y'all it's alright [x3]
As long as I got you

Ask me what I did with my life
I spent it with you
If I lose my fame and fortune
(Really don't matter)
As long as I got you, baby

Clap your hands y'all it's alright [x3]
As long as I got you, baby
Clap your hands y'all it's alright [x3]
As long as I got you

As the years they pass us by
(Years they, years they, years they)
We stay young through each other's eyes
(Each other's eyes)
And no matter how old we get
It's okay, as long as I got you, baby

Clap your hands y'all it's alright
As long as I got you, baby
Clap your hands y'all it's alright
As long as I got you, baby
Clap your hands y'all it's alright
As long as I got you, baby
Clap your hands y'all it's alright
As long as I got you, baby

As long as I got you [x5]
