Altar
Kehlani Lyrics


Fresh white flowers and a new tea light
Nine cups of water, still water
Soon I'll see your face
Don't know why I ever thought you were far away
I shoulda known better

If I set a flame and I call your name
I'll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner
We can share a meal your way
And I'll play you the songs that you used to play

So I put you on the altar
Stay just a little bit longer, whoa
Laid it out for ya
Thought I felt you before
But now you're closer
Closer, whoa
So I put you on the altar
Stay just a little bit longer, whoa
Laid it out for ya
Thought I felt you before
But now you're closer
Closer, whoa, whoa

Holding on to things you told me
Holding on to dreams you showed me
Holding on to anything from you
That you've been leaving here
Now I believe I swear
I can smell your perfume
Picking up your signal like a phone booth
Keeping you alive and I do it 'cause I want to

If I set a flame and I call your name
I'll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner
We can share a meal your way
And I'll play you the songs that you used to play

So I put you on the altar
Stay just a little bit longer, whoa
Laid it out for ya
Thought I felt you before
But now you're closer
Closer, whoa
So I put you on the altar
Stay just a little bit longer, whoa
Laid it out for ya
Thought I felt you before
But now you're closer (now you're closer)
Closer, whoa, whoa (closer)

Fresh white flowers and a new tea light
Nine cups of water, still water
Soon I'll see your face
Don't know why I ever thought you were far away
I shouda known better

If I set a flame and I call your name
I'll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner
We can share a meal your way
And I'll play you the songs that you used to play

So I put you on the altar
Stay just a little bit longer (Whoa)

Holding on to dreams you showed me
Holding on to anything from you

Now I believe I swear
I can smell your perfume
Picking up your signal like a phone booth
Keeping you alive and I do it 'cause I want to

If I set a flame and I call your name

Verse 1]
Fresh white flowers and a new tea light
Nine cups of water, still water
Soon I'll see your face
Don't know why I ever thought you were far away
I should've known better

[Pre-Chorus]
If I set a flame and I call your name
I'll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner
We can share a meal your way
And I'll play you the songs that you used to play

[Chorus]
So I put you on the altar, stay just a little bit longer, woah
Laid it out for ya', thought I felt you before
Now you're closer, closer, woah
So I put you on the altar, stay just a little bit longer, woah
Laid it out for ya', thought I felt you before
Now you'rе closer, closer, woah, woah

[Verse 2]
Holdin' on to things you told me
Holdin' on to drеams you showed me
Holdin' on to anything from you
That you've been leaving here
Now I believe I swear
I can smell your perfume
Picking up your signal like a phonebooth
Keeping you alive and I do it 'cause I want to
Pre-Chorus]
If I set a flame and I call your name
I'll fix you a plate, we can go to dinner
We can share a meal your way

This song brings tears to my eyes. It’s beautiful and the more you listen the more you feel what she’s saying and makes you think about a loved one. Definitely hit me different when I watched the video. I could not hold not one tear back or get through the first half. The footprints is what did it lol I’ve been listening to this since she dropped it.
