Ella Henderson – Billie Holiday Lyrics

Billie Holiday Lyrics by Ella Henderson

I remember when daddy said

What do you want to be?

I said I wanna be a mermaid to live under the sea

Well I knew it wouldn’t work out as I looked down to my feet

Then my gradad paid me my very first record and that’s when it changed for me

It me smile, made me sing, made my worries fly away

Setting me up, setting me free

I could be Billie Holiday

In the silence hard to think about

When in reality you gotta sit back

Just relax, and let it happen naturally

I went to sit by the keys

To work on my first songs

I had the melodies in my head

But they were coming out all wrong

Then I worked out some harmonies, that went…

And then that sweet sound spoke to me

And told where I belong

It me smile, made me sing, made my worries fly away

Setting me up, setting me free

I could be Billie Holiday

In the silence hard to think about

When in reality you gotta sit back

Just relax, and let it happen naturally

Fly away

So naturally

Toss the stress away

Cause I know, yeah I know, that it’ll make you feel alright

It me smile, made me sing, made my worries fly away

Setting me up, setting me free

I could be Billie Holiday

In the silence hard to think about

When in reality you gotta sit back

Just relax, and let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back

Just relax, and let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back

Just relax, and let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back

Just relax, and let it happen naturally

Gotta sit back

Just relax, and let it happen naturally
