Emeli Sande ft. Kendrick Lamar – Next To Me Lyrics

Just as I though Emeli Sande couldn’t be popping up in any more different places at once, Kendrick Lamar has hopped on her UK number 2 hit “Next To Me”, presumably to serve as the main version for an American release.

The result is… well… slightly bizarre on first impressions, especially as Kendrick’s verses don’t seem to make a lot of sense. Anyway, press play below and I’d be very interested to hear your thoughts!

Lyrics:

[Kendrick Lamar]

I’m looking at the flashing lights and wonder
The price enough but
Enticed by the glamorous ice
I wanna unite with the hollywood
Twice my concert
Or look like yours
And I wanted more than I can ever imagine
Even to kick down doors
So that you can hear that I’m rapping
So I can hear encore
Struck by the fame bug
We’re fighting the same drug
The feeling that caned us
In vain is tough love

[Emeli Sande]
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 chase 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

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

[Kendrick Lamar]

Tough love
Please help me
Please help me
I’m on my knees
Please help me
Need you to tell me
Ain’t nothing bigger than you
I thought a Benz would do
But nothing bigger than you
Ain’t nothing bigger than truth
And truth be told the totem pole
And non believers just made the kettle blow
And I can see you
Even when my vision’s impaired
You’re many moons away but you’re still right here

[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
