Lucky Daye – Floods – Live MP3 download

For one of his new Spotify Singles, Lucky Daye revisits his debut album by performing a live rendition of “Floods.”

Lucky Daye has had an amazing run this year. After appearing on Kehlani, Queen Naija, and Kiana Ledé’s albums in 2020, the four-time Grammy nominee came back strong in February with the release of the special Valentine’s Day EP Table For Two. The duet-filled project featured several of the leading female voices in R&B, including Ari Lennox, Yebba, and Mahalia, among others.

Months later, Lucky Daye has teamed up with Spotify for a new round of Spotify Singles, and both of his two latest offerings find the New Orleans-born artist looking to the past for inspiration.

For one of his Spotify Singles, Lucky Daye covered Marvin Gaye’s “Mercy Mercy Me,” and for the other song, he treated his fans with a stripped-down version of “Flooded,” which appeared on his acclaimed debut album Painted.

When explaining the song’s lyrics on Genius, Lucky Daye said, “The inspiration behind this song was this girl who I loved, and I thought she loved me back. She made me feel like I made her run away from me, but I didn’t know what I did and she couldn’t tell what I did.

So, I just wrote it. I was drunk. The floods represent not only tears, but it was drinking. I’m flooding my system with just drinks, drinks, drinks. I was gone that night.”

[Verse 1]
Babe, say somethin’, we should be ashamed
Don’t say names, I don’t wanna know
No care for the blame games
Watch it fall, fall, fall
Can’t hit me when you rain so loud
Flood away

[Pre-Chorus]
Speak into the mic, baby
You can’t seem to tell me what you need from me
What make you wanna fight lately?
So naive to believe you in it for us
My emotions been straight up too long
Lies get bogus, life’s the focus, I know
She’s stone cold

[Chorus]
You make seasons change with no fair warning
How you make seasons change without saying something? Oh
All these reasons I give lead you to running
Don’t leave me out in the cold without my warm thang

[Verse 2]
Should’ve made you feel more important
Now I’m up all night drinkin’ poison
‘Til my thoughts are all distorted
The only way I know to ignore it
Tryna hide all the pain
Just to go back to what it was for us
‘Nother bottle, I’m all poured out
Flood, flood away

[Pre-Chorus]
Speak into the mic, baby
You can’t seem to tell me what you need from me
What make you wanna fight lately?
So naive to believe you in it for us
My emotions been straight up too long
Lies get bogus, life’s the focus, I know
Stone cold

[Chorus]
You make seasons change with no fair warning
How you make seasons change without saying something? Oh
All these reasons I give lead you to running
Don’t leave me out in the cold without my warm thang

[Bridge]
Why you got me fallin’ just to spring up in the summer? When you
Wasn’t really sure, givin’ your love
How I’m ‘posed to know what you thought it was?
Damn, damn, damn, damn, damn
Dice, when we roll, like dice when we roll, like dice
Cold as ice and you know it, like ice when you know it, like ice

[Chorus]
But you make seasons change with no fair warning
How you make seasons change without saying something? Oh
All these reasons I give lead you to running
Don’t leave me out in the cold without my warm thang

[Outro]
Hey
Without my warm thang
Hmm, ooh yeah
Do-do-don’t
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah
