Sade feat. Jay-Z, “The Moon And The Sky (Remix)” (Lyrics)

8 Apr

Sade is old for a woman working in R&B. Jay-Z is old for a rapper. But they’re both masters of their fields, and I can’t get mad at them teaming with a young buck for a great track. Noah Shebib — that’s 40 to the uninitiated — lets his aquatic drums thump from on the ocean floor as Sade and Shawn float way above ‘em on “The Moon And The Sky (Remix),” off Sade’s The Hits Collection, out May 3rd.

Yeah, you can Google and find the MP3 on your own; I had to. Peep the “The Moon And The Sky (Remix)” lyrics after the jump.

Lyrics

(Ain’t gon’ let you go)

Sade

I was the one
I who could
Pull in all the stars above
Lay them on your feet
And I gave you my love
(Ain’t gon’ let you go)

You are the one that got me started
You coulda let me
Love anyone, but I only wanted you
So why did it make me cry?
Why didn’t you come get me one last time?

You’ll always know
Reason why
We could have had
The moon and the sky

You’ll always know
Reason why this love
Reason why this love
Ain’t gon’ let you go
(Ain’t gon’ let you go)

You laid me down, left me for lions
Long, long time ago
You left me there dyin’
(Ain’t gon’ let you go)
But you’ll never let me go

You’ll always know
Reason why
We could have had
The moon and the sky

You’ll always know
Reason why this love
Reason why this love
Ain’t gon’ let you go
(Ain’t gon’ let you go)

Jay-Z

I know we coulda had it all
I wasn’t ready to go steady, no, not at all
Smoke in mirrors cloudin’ my vision, we hit a wall
Couldn’t see the moon and the sky behind the fall
Pregnant pause
Damn, your baby tall, whatchu been up to?
I don’t blame you, my doll, yeah, we kinda stallin’
As God as my witness, time, it was my mistress
Guess it’s in the stars for me to love you from a distance
Uh, our ship sailed, uh, the wind blows
The door’s always open but our window is closed
You always thought “What if?” but that’ll just drive you crazy
Baby-girl interrupted, thinkin’ ’bout what wasn’t
Thinkin’ ’bout “What was it?” Was it somethin’ I done?
Somethin’ I could do better although nothin’ could be done?
Sometimes you get what you need, not what you think you want
So maybe no moon and sky, yet a beautiful son
Uh

You’ll always know the reason why
The song you heard will stay on your mind
It ain’t gon’ let you go, no
‘Cause you have the moon
I have the endless sky

You’ll always know (You have the dreams and I’ll always have every star)
Reason why (Every one of them twinklin’)
We could have had (And they wonder what you thinkin’)
The moon and the sky

You’ll always know
We had the moon and the sky above
And I gave you my love
(Ain’t gon’ let you go)
