10 Sade Songs That Tug At The Heart Strings

10. “Fear” from “Promise”

Blue is the color of the red sky
Will he, will he come home tonight
Blue is the color that she feels inside
Matador I can’t hide my fear anymore

9. “Love Is Stronger Than Pride” from Stronger Than Pride

I won’t pretend that I intend to stop living
I won’t pretend I’m good at forgiving
But I can’t hate you
Though I have tried

I still really really love you
Love is stronger than pride
I still really really love you

8. “King Of Sorrow” from Lovers Rock

I’m crying everyone’s tears
And there inside our private war
I died the night before
And all of these remnants of joy and disaster
What am I suppose to do

I want to cook you a soup that warms your soul
But nothing would change, nothing would change at all
It’s just a day that brings it all about
Just another day and nothing’s any good

7. “Frankie’s First Affair” from Diamond Life

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H1EirQBDUgFrankie, didn’t I tell you
You’ve got the world
In the palm of your hand
Frankie, didn’t I tell you they’re running
At your commandYou know the tricks
As if they’re your invention
It wasn’t your intention
Frankie, to fall in the trap you made

6. “Mermaid” (instrumental) from Love Deluxe

5. “War Of The Hearts” from Promise

I could aim
But I could not fire
Got a bullet to spare to kill my desire
Who’s calling the shots
One of us must make the peace
To have or to have not
The fire has got to cease
I’m loaded
Don’t know where to point this thing
It’s a sin
How we hit where it hurts
Who’s calling the shots
One of us (one of us) must end this masquerade
To have or to have not
Let’s heal the wounds that we’ve made

4. “Haunt Me” from Stronger Than Pride

haunt me
in my dreams
if you please
your breath is with me now and always
it’s like a breeze

3. “Lovers Rock” from Lovers Rock

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDIzWI6c0VIi am in the wilderness
you are in the music in the man’s car next to me
somewhere in my sadness
i know i won’t fall apart
completelywhen i need to be rescued
and i need a place to swim
i have a rock to cling to
in the storm
when no-one can hear
me calling
i have you i can sing to

2. “Your Love Is King” from Diamond Life

Your love is king, crown you in my heart
Your love is king, never need to part
Your kisses ring, round and round and round my head
Touching the very part of me, it’s making my soul sing
Tearing the very heart of me, I’m crying out for more

1. “Is It A Crime” from Promise

This may come, this may come as some surprise
But I miss you
I could see through all of your lies
And still I miss you

He takes her love, but it doesn’t feel like mine
He tastes her kiss, her kisses are not wine, they’re not mine

He takes, but surely she can’t give what I’m feeling now
She takes, but surely she doesn’t know how
