Budapest Lyrics by George Ezra


George Ezra Lyrics

Budapest Lyrics
Jump to:
My house in Budapest
My, my hidden treasure chest,
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo

You
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

My acres of a land
That I've achieved
It may be hard for you to,
Stop and believe

But for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Ooh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My many artifacts
The list goes on
If you just say the words
I I'll up and run

To you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Ooh, to you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My friends and family
They don't understand
They fear they'll lose so much
If you take my hand

But, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd lose it all

Ooh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd lose it all.

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

Give me one good reason
Why I should never make a change
Baby if you hold me
Then all of this will go away

My house in Budapest
My, my hidden treasure chest,
Golden grand piano
My beautiful Castillo

You
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all.

Ooh, for you
Ooh, you
Ooh, I'd leave it all

Budapest Info:

• The title is a reference to a trip he made to Europe where he went backpacking for a couple of months. However, despite titling the song after the Hungarian capital, he never made it to the city.

He explained: "On that trip, the city of Budapest was the only place I planned to visit that I didn't make it to. When you look at the song lyrically, it's just a list of things I have that I'd give up for somebody."

He also said of the song: "It was my first attempt to write a love song, and it uses the first three guitar chords I ever learned. There's a lot to be said for that simplicity."

• The name of the album Wanted On Voyage is a reference to the stamp often put on luggage back in the days of steamboat travel to indicate that the passenger wanted to keep it close by. Ezra learned of the phrase through the Paddington Bear stories - the phrase was stamped on Paddington's suitcase.
