Lyrics: Asa – The Beginning
“One of us may have the last say,
Words like a dagger,
We try to hurt each other
There’s no other way until one surrender,
We’ve been like this for days,
We’ve been like this for days eh
You wanna say your goodbye with a smile on your face,
I thought it was just usual,
You’d be gone just for a little while
I didn’t see it coming,
Won’t believe if someone told me that I’d be waiting for years,
Waiting for years eh eh
Even though we near,
Like I’m far away, far far far away
Can you hear me,
Can you hear me, let’s go back to the beginning
One of us must have the last say,
I’m writing you this letter hoping we can make things clearer
Over shouting, we forget to hear each other
And I miss you for days, in so many ways eh eh eh”
Asa is one hell of a singer and she damn well knows it! She is our very own Adele, Nope scratch that, Adele is the European version of Asa! Yep, we said and we mean no disrespect to Adele (We love you, Adele).
The beginning begins with a serenading piano playing and then the smooth and seamless introduction of Asa's vocals.
One could tell that the song would indeed be a classic one from the intro.
Asa talks about a bitter-sweet relationship, the lyrics of the song are straightforward, relatable and explanatory. We enjoyed the storyline as certain members of our team were currently nursing a heartbreak (sorry y'all)
We loved the vocals of the song. It felt like a different yet a familiar Asa. We could hear the rollercoaster of emotions in her performance. It made it even easier for us to relate with an already relatable storyline.
Asa managed to blend Rhythm and Blues with Soul music together to give us the masterpiece that is "The Beginning". We loved the rich sounds, tempo and rhythm of the song. Even the instrumentals were a surreal experience.
