Massive Attack - Live With Me

Song

"Live with Me" is a song by Massive Attack which was included in their 2006 compilation albumCollected, and was also released as a single. The song is notable for the critical acclaim it garnered due to its haunting lyrics, soulful vocals, and emotional string section.

Vocals

Vocals were supplied by the acclaimed soul singer Terry Callier, who was 60 at the time the song was recorded. Callier was an American jazz, soul and folk guitarist singer-songwriter from ChicagoIllinois, who has won a UN Peace Award for his humanitarian work promoting peace through his songs.

Critical reception

MusicOMH described the song as "not only a welcome return for the band but a hark back to their glory days, circa Blue Lines and Protection; it is an aching, haunting love song ... that beautifully evokes the pain and longing of failed romance. ... Callier's gloriously emotive vocal that lifts this track far above and beyond average. He succeeds in being both fragile and powerful in a way that previous Massive Attack vocalists Shara Nelson and Tracey Thorn also achieved."

ContractMusic said that "Live With Me" "has a certain dark and sexy groove going on. Partly it's the trade-mark lush, sensual synthetic bass sounds that do it, but mostly it's the authentic soul vocals of Terry Callier that lift this single out of ordinariness and up into the realms of unforgettable musical moments."

Virgin Media described the song as having "some extremely evocative and rich vocals come courtesy of soul legend Terry Callier, who builds 'Live With Me' to a mesmerising climax against a backdrop of lush, expansive strings and a rolling, hypnotic bassline. It's clear the band have lost none of their distinctive edge..."

Lyrics

It don't matter when you turn
Gonna survive
You live and learn
I've been thinking about you, baby
By the light of dawn

A midnight blue, day and night
I've been missing you
I've been thinking about you, baby
Almost makes me crazy
Come and live with me

Either way, win or lose
When you're born into trouble
You live the blues
I've been thinking about you, baby
See it almost makes me crazy

Child, nothing's right, if you ain't here
I'll give all that I have just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, I tried to make it clear
That you just don't believe that I'm sincere
I've been thinking about you, baby

Plans and schemes
Hopes and fears
Dreams that deny for all these years
I, I've been thinking about you, baby
Living with me, well

I've been thinking about you, baby
Makes me wanna

Child, nothing's right, if you ain't here
I'll give all that I have just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter, darling, tried to make it clear
Oh, but you just don't believe that I'm sincere
I've been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me, well
I've been thinking about you, baby
I want you to live with me

Testo

Non importa se ti volti
Sopravviverò
Vivi e impari
Ti ho pensato, tesoro
Dalla luce dell'alba

Un blu notte, giorno e notte
Mi sei mancato
Ti ho pensato, tesoro
Sono quasi impazzito
Vieni e vivi con me

In entrambi i casi, vincere o perdere
Quando nasci nei problemi
Vivi nella tristezza
Ti ho pensato, tesoro
Guarda, mi ha quasi fatto diventare pazzo

A volte, niente è giusto, se tu non sei qui
Darò tutto ciò che ho per tenerti vicino
Ti ho scritto una lettera, ho cercato di chiarire
Che tu non credi che io sia sincero
Ti ho pensato, tesoro

Piani e schemi
Speranze e paure
Sogni che nego per tutti questi anni
Ti ho pensato, tesoro
Vivendo con me, wow

Ti ho pensato, tesoro
Mi fai venire voglia di

A volte, niente è giusto, se tu non sei qui
Darò tutto ciò che ho per tenerti vicino
Ti ho scritto una lettera, ho cercato di chiarire
Che tu non credi che io sia sincero
Ti ho pensato, tesoro
Voglio che tu viva con me, wow
Ti ho pensato, tesoro
Voglio che tu viva con me




Terry Callier
