Song Lyric Sunday – Latch by Sam Smith

I honestly had no idea what to do for today’s Song Lyric Sunday, so I did what any mom would do… I asked my son.  He gave me two songs that, frankly, I didn’t like at all.  He’s really into rap and hip-hop and I’ve juts never really been into that kind of music.  I told him I really liked Sam Smith and he picked this one.

I think I’ve heard this song once or twice, but I hadn’t really listed to the lyrics until today.  It’s such a classic love story – once you find someone, you just want to latch onto them and never let go.  “You, you enchant me even when you’re not around.”  I honestly feel that way about my fiance.  It’s so nice to be in a safe place in love and I’m grateful every day that I met him and we stuck through the hard times.

I hope you enjoy this week’s Song Lyric Sunday pick.  Feel free to post your own love song (even though we just barely did that one not too long ago).  There are lots of choices out there, and I know I have more than one favorite, so you must have more than one too.

Latch by Sam Smith
Written by James Napier, Howard Lawrence, Guy Lawrence and Sam Smith
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down
You, you enchant me even when you’re not around
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down
I’m latching on, babe, now I know what I have found

I feel we’re close enough
Could I lock in your love?
I feel we’re close enough
Could I lock in your love?

Now I’ve got you in my space
I won’t let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I’m latching on to you

I’m so en-captured, got me wrapped up in your touch
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch
How do you do it? You got me losing every breath
What did you give me to make my heart bleed out my chest?

I feel we’re close enough
Could I lock in your love?
I feel we’re close enough
Could I lock in your love?

Now I’ve got you in my space
I won’t let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I’m latching on to you

Now I’ve got you in my space
I won’t let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I’m latching on to you

I’m latching on to you

  3. Oh dear, I really do not like Sam Smith. I do not like his voice even though some of his songs are ok. Still, I skip this one. Sorry 🙂

    • HI Damian. I couldn’t figure out how to comment on your blog. It could be my computer settings, or I don’t really know. But welcome and thank you for playing along. I LOVED the song you posted. I believe I’ve heard of the singer, but listening to this song made me realize she is someone I would like to listen to more. 🙂
