LISTEN: "Dear No One" by Tori Kelly

Aside from writing, music is my greatest form of therapy. Unfortunately, I can't sing (but I will anyway) or play an instrument, but when it comes to moments of clarity, listening to the right lyrics and melodies quickly puts my mind back on track. The single "Dear No One" by Tori Kelly has instantly become one of my favorites. What she describes in this song is exactly how I currently feel about being single in the dating world.

Take a listen to the track below and follow along with the lyrics.

 

"Dear No One"

I like being independent Not so much of an investment No one to tell me what to do I like being by myself Don’t gotta entertain anybody else No one to answer to

But sometimes, I just want somebody to hold Someone to give me their jacket when its cold Got that young love even when we’re old Yeah sometimes, I want someone to grab my hand Pick me up, pull me close, be my man I will love you till the end

So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you But I’m done lookin’, for my future someone Cause when the time is right You’ll be here, but for now Dear no one, this is your love song

I don’t really like big crowds I tend to shut people out I like my space, yeah But I’d love to have a soul mate God will give him to me someday & I know it’ll be worth the wait

So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you But I’m done lookin’, for my future someone Cause when the time is right You’ll be here, but for now Dear no one, this is your love song

But sometimes, I just want somebody to hold Someone to give me their jacket when its cold Got that young love even when we’re old Yeah sometimes, I want someone to grab my hand Pick me up, pull me close, be my man I will love you till the end

So if you’re out there I swear to be good to you But I’m done lookin’, for my future someone Cause when the time is right You’ll be here, but for now Dear no one, this is your love song
