Corinne Bailey Rae – Stop where you are (new video)

British singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae announced her highly anticipated third studio album “The heart speaks in whispers”, her first in six years.
“Stop where you are” is the new single. The heartfelt song has a video, which runs partially in slo-motion.
Corinne explains the meaning of the video: “Sometimes we hold our happiness away from ourselves because we’re waiting for the perfect moment and we say, ‘When I get this job, I’ll be happy. When I lose this weight, I’ll be happy. When I get a partner, I’ll be happy’. So I really wanted to write this song, which is about being in the moment and being present, and stopping and ritualising the moment, celebrating it. I love the image of being in darkness and lighting a fire and saying, ‘Here we are together. This is life with all its pain, all its agony, all its beauty, all of its joy. This is it, this is what we have, this is the world that we’ve made!’”
“The heart speaks in whispers”, which will feature Esperanza Spalding and Moses Sumnney, is scheduled for May 13.
Following the release of the record Corinne will be supporting Lionel Richie on his forthcoming UK tour, including three nights at The O2 in London. She will also perform at UK festivals including Live At Leeds, the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and Cornbury Festival.

Lyrics:

Tender is the light that shines on you
Gentle is the morning made anew
Delicate, the grace we’ve come into
My love
Wonder why you wish your life away
Waiting for the perfect boat to take
Waiting for the perfect wind to sail away

Life’s shining around you
Don’t miss a day
If you’re caught up in the chase
You hold your happiness away from you

Stop where you are
Under fading stars
This is the world we’ve made
There is no better place, it’s true
Light a fire where you are

Underneath a blanket of the cold
Lying in the dark, your seed will grow
Miracles just like a winter rose will be
Give up all the things you can’t control
Still yourself and watch them come and go
Wherever you are, you’ll find you’re home at last

Everything glitters around you
Don’t miss a day
The moon on the lake
The smell in the air when it rains
The people you can share with
The feeling you get when you’re almost there

Stop where you are
Under fading stars
This is the world we’ve made
There is no better place, it’s true
Light a fire where you are

You can’t stop the wild wind roaring
But you can stop my poor heart from calling out
Light a fire where you are

Stop where you are
Under fading stars
This is the world we’ve made
There is no better place, it’s true
Light a fire where you are
