Billie Holiday Lyrics by Ella Henderson


Ella Henderson Lyrics

Billie Holiday Lyrics
I remember when Daddy said 'What do you wanna be?'
I said I wanna be a mermaid and to live under the sea
Well I knew it wouldn't work out as I looked down at my feet
Then my granddad played me my very first record
And that's when it changed for me

It made me smile, made me sing
Made my worries fly away
Lifted me up, set me free
I could be Billie Holiday
And they say life's hard to figure out 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 song
I had the melodies in my head
But they were coming out all wrong
Then I worked out some harmonies
That went oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
And then that sweet sound spoke to me
And told me where I belong

It made me smile, made me sing
Made my worries fly away
Lifted me up, set me free
I could be Billie Holiday
And they say life's hard to figure out when in reality
You gotta sit back, just relax
And let it happen naturally

Oh, fly away
Oh, so naturally
Oh, take the stress away
'Cause I know, yeah I know
It'll make you feel alright

It made me smile, made me sing
Made my worries fly away
Lifted me up, set me free
I could be Billie Holiday
And they say life's hard to figure out 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
