Velvet Rope
Rita Ora Lyrics


Where did it go, the love that we shared?
Guess we'll never know
Is it hidden behind that velvet rope?
While I'm standing alone, out in the cold
Where did you go?
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Do your new friends know that it's all for show
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Or did you fool them all into thinking you're gold?
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Did you do as you're told? Will it ever get old?
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)

Don't you remember me, darling?
When you lay down to sleep, do you still think of me?
'Cause I remember you, darling
Without the sadness in your eyes
Now the champagne's running dry

I heard that you been living it up, living it up
Where did I go wrong?
Only yesterday, you were beside me, -side me
Now I'm just another one
You're the one who's giving it up, giving it up
Singing that same song
You're the only one I want beside me, -side me
Now I'm just another one
Singing that same song

You were so high
I bet you felt you could touch the sky
Now you reached the top, was it worth the climb?
Oh, what did you find? Would you leave it behind?
If I were to say
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
That since you've been gone it isn't the same
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
That maybe I'm wrong and I've made a mistake
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
By letting you go so far away
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Don't you remember me, darling?
When you lay down to sleep, do you still think of me?
'Cause I remember you, darling
Without the sadness in your eyes
Now the champagne's running dry (Oh, oh, oh, oh)

I heard that you been living it up, living it up
Where did I go wrong?
Only yesterday, you were beside me, -side me
Now I'm just another one
You're the one who's giving it up, giving it up
Singing that same song
You're the only one I want beside me, -side me
Now I'm just another one (Ooh)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)

Singing that same song, yeah (Ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Now I'm just another one (Come on, ooh)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Clap with me now
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Singing that same song (Ooh, ooh)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
You're the only one I want beside me, -side me
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Now I'm just another one
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)

I heard that you been living it up, living it up (Oh, no)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Where did I go wrong? (Yeah, yeah)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Only yesterday, you were beside me, -side me
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Now I'm just another one (You know that I know that I know it feels right, yeah, yeah)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
You're the one who's giving it up, giving it up (Oh, no)
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Singing that same song
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
You're the only one I want beside me, -side me
(Do-do-do-do-do-do-do)
Now I'm just another one (Oh)

[Verse 1]
Where did it go, the love that we shared?
Guess we'll never know
Is it hidden behind that velvet rope?
While I'm standing alone out in the cold
Where did you go?
Do your new friends know that it's all for show
Or did you fool them all to thinking you're gold?
Did you do as your told? Will it ever get old?

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you remember me, darling?
When you lay down to sleep, do you still think of me?
'Cause I remember you, darling
Without the sadness in your eyes
Now the champagne's running dry

I heard that you've been living it up, living it up
Where did I go wrong?
Only yesterday, you were beside me, -side me
Now I'm just another one
You're the one who's giving it up, giving it up
Singing that same song
You're the only one I want beside me, -side me

Para onde foi o amor que compartilhamos?

Acho que nunca saberemos

Está escondido atrás dessa corda de veludo?

Enquanto eu fico parada, sozinha, no frio

Para onde você foi?

Seus novos amigos sabem que é só para se mostrar?

Ou você os enganou os deixando pensar que você vale ouro?

Fez o que te mandaram fazer? Algum dia vai amadurecer?




Você se lembra de mim, querido?

Quando se deita para dormir, ainda pensa em mim?

Porque eu lembro de você, querido

Sem a tristeza em seus olhos

Agora, o champanhe está acabando




Escutei que você tem se divertido, se divertido

Onde foi que eu errei?

Ontem mesmo, você estava ao meu lado, ao meu lado

Agora, sou só mais uma

Você é que está desistindo, desistindo

Cantando aquela mesma música

Você é o único que eu quero ao meu lado, ao meu lado

Agora, sou só mais uma

Cantando aquela mesma música




Você estava tão chapado

Aposto que achou que podia tocar o céu

Agora que alcançou o topo, valeu a pena escalar?

Oh, o que você encontrou? Você deixaria isso para trás?

Se eu te dissesse

Que desde que você se foi, não é a mesma coisa

Que talvez eu esteja errada e tenha cometido um erro

Te deixando partir para tão longe




Você se lembra de mim, querido?

Quando se deita para dormir, ainda pensa em mim?

Porque eu lembro de você, querido

Sem a tristeza em seus olhos

Agora, o champanhe está acabando




Escutei que você tem se divertido, se divertido

Onde foi que eu errei?

Ontem mesmo, você estava ao meu lado, ao meu lado

Agora, sou só mais uma

Você é que está desistindo, desistindo

Cantando aquela mesma música

Você é o único que eu quero ao meu lado, ao meu lado

Agora, sou só mais uma




Cantando aquela mesma música, sim

Agora, sou só mais uma (vamos)

Batam palmas comigo agora

Cantando aquela mesma música

Você é o único que eu quero ao meu lado, ao meu lado

Agora, sou só mais uma




Escutei que você tem se divertido, se divertido Oh, não)

Onde foi que eu errei? (sim, sim)

Ontem mesmo, você estava ao meu lado, ao meu lado

Agora, sou só mais uma

(Você sabe que eu sei

que eu sei que parece certo, sim, sim)

Você é que está desistindo, desistindo (oh, não)

Cantando aquela mesma música

Você é o único que eu quero ao meu lado, ao meu lado

Agora, sou só mais uma (oh)
