This quarter… I’m picking two songs from Leon Bridges who I just love his vibe and I find these two songs truly romantic.  If I’m walking at night and I’m alone with the earbuds… I sing them.

I’m in that kind of mood and I wanted to share these two super sweet songs.  The first one is “Coming Home”.

Baby, baby, baby
I’m coming home
To your tender sweet loving
You’re my one and only woman
The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl
You’re the only one that I want

I wanna be around
I wanna be around you girl
I wanna be around girl
I wanna be around

Baby, how I’d be grieving
If you wanted to leave me all alone now
By myself, I don’t want nobody else
The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl
You’re the only one that I want

I wanna be around
I wanna be around you girl
I wanna be around girl
I wanna be around

Baby, baby, baby
I’m coming home
To your tender sweet loving
You’re my one and only woman
The world leaves a bitter taste in my mouth, girl
You’re the only one that I want

I wanna be around
I wanna be around you girl
I wanna be around girl
I wanna be around

I need you baby
Girl I, I need your loving
Darling, wanna hold you close
Girl, girl

The second song from Leon is “Better Man” and it’s just as sweet.

I don’t want much
I just wanna be a better man
To my baby
Meet me off good luck
I was singing with them Jezebels
Under perfume sheets
Got a golden smile, heart overflow
But got us in love, but it wasn’t enough

What can I do? What can I do?
To get back to your heart
I’d swim the Mississippi river
If you would give me another start, girl

All night long I was out
Out till the morning
But baby you’re tender
Love’s what I’m longing
Baby please, I’m down on my knees begging
I thirst for you girl
Baby I’m running to your well

What can I do? What can I do?
To get back to your heart
I’d swim the Mississippi river
If you would give me another start, girl

Every now and again… I let iTunes tell me who I should listen to.  I take a little listen and see why they recommended it.  One of those Artists was Leon Bridges and right away… it was a sound that I have not listened to and had in my playlist and collections.  I was so drawn in.  I purchased the 3 songs that he has available.  His album is coming out June 23rd.  He is even in Toronto tonight at the Drake Hotel and I am bummed I can’t go and listen to him.  Next time he comes… I’m there.  About 8 months ago he was washing dishes.

Here is a couple of songs from him.  The first one is “Coming Home” and it just has me in love.  Makes me happy.  Makes me think about her.  I think I need to make a playlist

The next song is “Better Man” and I picked a more raw version with pulling videos that are unplugged.

Listening to this as I type… I wish I could be at the Drake Hotel tonight.  If you download his music and put it on repeat.  You will fall in love with it and it will bring you back to a vintage feel in your mind and the deep south will fill your ears…

Hell… find someone and cook them a dinner with the full album on.
