Honey'd Up 04:00
In the moment I was just like anyone else, Not all I could be Just the model hope of warmth like everyone else In an ark around the “what will be will be” In the mindlessness and fuzz of everything else, You’re all you can be In the blindness and the crumbs of figuring self You know that water don’t run just for me Any day now, all this could be drowned Any day now, you’ll doubt me Any day now, all this could go down But I’ll go where you’ll be And the holy dove would fly right into ya, babe And only dark could spotlight me Only dumb luck got me clipped to ya, babe I’m honey’d up like a bumblebee And the nightbird warns ya, don’t try anyone else than who you should be And in the morning, I’m still lost like everyone else But you’re all hunger and raw sweet bravery Any day now, all this could be drowned Any day now, you’ll doubt me Any day now, all this could go down But I’ll go where you’ll be And the holy dove would fly right into ya, babe And only dark could spotlight me Only dumb luck got me clipped to ya, babe I’m honey’d up like a bumblebee I’m honey’d up like a bumblebee I’m honey’d up just like a bumblebee I’m honey’d up like a bumblebee

about

London soul multi-talent, Royce Wood Junior, follows up last month's uproarious "Slush" with his second single for the Fresh Selects label.

Here, RWJ bares his soul with a beautifully understated arrangement of just his voice, keys & guitar, accompanied by a lush string section, & a little help from his friends NAO and Sincerely Wilson on backing vocals, for a timelessly endearing, and enduring, tune.

"This one’s about not being enough for someone, knowing it in real time but for some reason not being able to change it. You know the one. But you know, it’s also about being grateful, and lucky, and just human."

You can catch up on "Slush" here: freshselects.bandcamp.com/album/slush

Both songs will be included on Royce's upcoming sophomore album, releasing this summer – stay tuned for more details coming soon.
