Finally, another great album has been made and released by the talented and beautiful English singer and songwriter Jessie Ware. Her strong, soulful and lush voice is perfect for the joy, devotion, trials, tribulations and questionable obsession of love which is her main topic of exploration. Her new project Glasshouse is another masterful compilation of new and old sounds paired with a more capable and trained voice belting more poetic lyrics that really offer a mental place to dream, love and work some romanticism out.

I’m so glad she did a video for my favorite song on the album “Selfish Love“. The sound brings me back to classic movies and relaxing on a European beach which definitely inspired the visuals of the music video. The lyrics remind me of thoughts and actions I took on with an ex-boyfriend, passing lust interests and the self inflicted game of love and emotions. Check it out!

Lyrics:

Baby, let’s be honest about this
There’s only room for one in your heart
So tell me, darlin’, why are we like this?
I must admit that I kind of like it

Oh, you’re acting sweet
I know what that means
All these games we play
Always end the same

Selfish love, why do I do these things?
I break you down, just to get my way
Selfish love, darlin’, you do it, too
You tell me lies and I bend the truth

And I, I know
That I can’t get enough
Selfish love

Baby, now it feels like we’re dancing
Touching bullets, now ain’t that romantic?
Take what I want, but you want me to take it
I only give love when I want to make it

Oh, you’re acting sweet
I know what that means
All these games we play
Always end the same

Selfish love, why do I do these things?
I break you down, just to get my way
Selfish love, darlin’, you do it, too
You tell me lies and I bend the truth

And I, I know
That I can’t get enough
Selfish love
Selfish love
Selfish love

Oh, you’re acting sweet
And I know what that means
Selfish love
Oh, you’re acting sweet
And I know what means

Selfish love, selfish love
Selfish love, selfish love

Selfish love, selfish love
Selfish love, selfish love

Enjoy and be inspired!

Jessie Ware
