“Not Above Love” – AlunaGeorge [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

I don’t usually go all in, babe
But you’re a hand that I had to play
And you took me all the way
Make me lose more than I could win, babe
And I really need to let you know

I’m not above love, I just ran out of air
I’m not above love, so it’s not like I don’t care
And I know you’re thinking the worst of me
But I hope one day you’ll see
I’m not above love, I just ran out of air

You keep robbing my heart like a bank
And I only got myself to thank
You keep robbing my heart like a bank
No thank you, no thank you
I’m not gonna call you in
Cause you’re taking everything
You keep robbing my heart like a bank
No thank you, no thank you

I don’t usually overdose
But you’re a trip that I had to take
Another fix, I couldn’t wait
Now the edge is far too close
So I really need to let you know

You keep robbing my heart like a bank
And I only got myself to thank
You keep robbing my heart like a bank
No thank you, no thank you
I’m not gonna call you in
Cause you’re taking everything
You keep robbing my heart like a bank
No thank you

You took me to a place so far from here
You took me to another atmosphere
But I got so high, I couldn’t breathe
And I’ve been holding, holding, holding, holding, holding, holding…

I’m not above love, I just ran out of air
I’m not above love, so it’s not like I don’t care
And I know you’re thinking the worst of me
But I hope one day you’ll see
I’m not above love, I just ran out of air

You keep robbing my heart like a bank
And I only got myself to thank
You keep robbing my heart like a bank
No thank you, no thank you
I’m not gonna call you in
Cause you’re taking everything
You keep robbing my heart like a bank
No thank you, no thank you

AlunaGeorge’s new music video for “Not Above Love” puts a new spin on heartbreak. Check it out above, on YouTube.

Singer Aluna Francis dances the night away with her friends, blowing off energy and staying away from a bad relationship. In an interview with the BBC’s Annie Mac, Aluna shared her inspiration:

I think this song speaks for itself, it was a moment where I was really stuck in this emotional… that point where you keep going round and round and you can’t snap out of it and a friend of mine really just explained to me that this person was promising things but not actually delivering anything and they were just stealing my obsessive energy that I was giving to that person.

The song samples Slow Motion Centerfold’s “Plan B” from their 2010 album Rock the Body Language.
