Emeli Sande – Read All About It Lyrics

You’ve got the words to change a nation1
But you’re biting your tongue2
You’ve spent a life time stuck in silence3
Afraid you’ll say something wrong
If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?4

So come on, come on
Come on, come on
You’ve got a heart as loud as lightning5
So why let your voice be tamed?6
Maybe we’re a little different
There’s no need to be ashamed7
You’ve got the light to fight the shadows8
So stop hiding it away9
Come on, come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out10
So put it in all of the papers,11
I’m not afraid
They12 can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

At night we’re waking up the neighbors
While we sing away the blues13
Making sure that we’re remembered,14 yeah
‘Cause we all matter too15
If the truth has been forbidden
Then we’re breaking all the rules16

So come on, come on
Come on, come on,
Let’s get the TV and the radio
To play our tune again17
It’s ’bout time we got some airplay18 of our version of events19
There’s no need to be afraid
I will sing with you my friend
Come on, come on

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?20
Now we’re finally finding our voices21
So take a chance, come help me sing this
Yeah, we’re all wonderful, wonderful people
So when did we all get so fearful?
And now we’re finally finding our voices
Just take a chance, come help me sing this

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream ’til the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers,
I’m not afraid
They can read all about it
Read all about it, oh22
