Ellie Goulding x Angel Haze


Ellie Goulding and Angel Haze teamed up with producer Noah Breakfast to cover James Blake‘s Life Around Here. Although there is nothing quite like the original or the remix featuring Chance the Rapper, Ellie Goulding sings sweetly over soft ambient instrumentals, nailing the familiar chorus into the intense highlight of Angel Haze’s stream of rhythmic consciousness. Her words are so direct that you may find yourself fast forwarding to the 2:30 spot just to hear her rap over and over again. Enjoy the music and the emotional words by Angel Haze below.


I wonder how you feel to be well locked in my mind
So you barely understand my thoughts sometimes
Little bit of death and a little bit of God
Cause I swear that I be livin in the dark sometimes
And it sets in here, nobody gets let in
Til I let my emotions out on every single page
and instrumental that I’m left with

Shit, I wonder…
Will I ever really feel shit?
And if it all takes time and I ask why
Will time eventually reveal this?
Cause… the remedy, I’m searching for the remedy
Cause I’m fucked up and my heart’s just
Another ghost in my memory

Knock real hard on real real wood
Things still feel bad when they’re real real good
And my brain’s just a vessel and I just feel like hell
But the more you fuckin know, less things feel real
Then the time shifts and my mind shifts
It ain’t really anyone or anything
I can really vibe with
Cause I’m searching but I’m terrified
Then bout the time I find what I’m lookin for
I’ll be dead inside
