The Song Of 01/30/2017: Black Coffee – Your Eyes (feat. Shekhinah)

Monday, you’ve been so harsh to me that I wanted to turn off all the songs I was listening to.
Then I found this one.
Mixes with Monday evening mood…
Deep…
a little sad.
Still dreamy.
Crying out loud without any opportunity to change something.

Your eyes, yeah
You eyes, they sparkle in the light
But in the dark I see the true colours of your heart
Your eyes,
Your eyes,
Your eyes, yeah

Black Coffee (Nkosinathi Maphumulo) is a South African DJ and producer. He’s also included in the Guinness Book of World Records with 60h of non-stop DJing at Maponya Mall.

‘You eyes’ was released in September 2016. Black Coffee’s moving to soulful R&B here. Nice vocals by African singer Shekhinah mix with dreamy chords and down tempo beats.

Turn off the lights, look at the night city through the window.

Feel it.

Black Coffee – Your Eyes (feat. Shekhinah)

I would swim forever in your light
If I, I could stay, the apple of your eye, yeah
I would pray,

No surprise when it’s you and I
I could spend a decade based on lies
If I, I could stay forever in you lies, yeah
I don’t know why we’ve changed
And I, I’m so sure I’m your flame

Your eyes change colour when you lie
I can see it, I’m not blind, yeah
Your eyes,
Your eyes,
Your eyes, yeah
You eyes, they sparkle in the light
But in the dark I see the true colours of your heart
Your eyes,
Your eyes,
Your eyes, yeah

I can’t deny just what I’m feelin’
All through the dark shit, you know I’m keepin’ ya,
Keepin’ ya
You’re not leaving
Ain’t make this up, but there’s no reason
It’s in my eyes, you keep rereading them,
Rereading them
See I don’t know how I could leave boy
Cause life will surely cease to mean anything
And though it’s no excuse,
Believe me,
You know me, I don’t hurt too easy, yeah
Easy, yeah
Easy, yeah

Your eyes change colour when you lie
I can see it, I’m not blind, yeah
Your eyes,
Your eyes,
Your eyes, yeah
You eyes, they sparkle in the light
But in the dark I see the true colours of your heart
Your eyes,
Your eyes,
Your eyes, yeah

They say you love me, there’s no one above me
They say I’m pretty, I don’t need no makeup
Your eyes, your lies, they shot a million knives
Your eyes, yeah
They say you love me, there’s no one above me
They say I’m pretty, I don’t need no makeup
Your eyes, your eyes, they’re telling me your lies
Your lies, yeah

They say they lie, boy, they lie
You ain’t gotta try, don’t try
I know this is love
I know this is love
I know this is love
I know this is love
I know this is love, love
I know this is love, love
