LyricsEdit

James Blake version

Part time love is life round here
We never done...
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done...

Now we're at square one
And we waited too long
So we're back to square one

We never done...

Part time love is life round here
We never done...
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done...
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done...

Now we're at square one
And we waited too long
So we're back to square one
So we're back to square one

Part time love is life round here
We never done...
Part time love is life round here
We never done...
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done...
Every...

Part time love
We never done...
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is life round here
We never done...
Every...

Remix version (feat. Chance The Rapper)

[Hook: James Blake & Chance the Rapper]
Part time love is the life 'round here
We're never done
Now we’re at square one
Life ain't been 'round here in a minute
Here ain't been 'round my whole life
And we waited too long
Chaos been 'round for a minute
Marketed, bottled it up
But wear that fake smile like a cape
Save yourself first, save yourself first

[Verse 1: James Blake]
Part time love is the life 'round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is the life 'round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Now we’re at square one
And we waited too long
So we’re back to square one

[Verse 2: Chance the Rapper]
Why every time I land in London, land of Lincoln all on my mind?
I plan to plane it back after playin' a packed show in due time
I'm 'round about I bought a round of English ale for my pals
A bouncer sold a ounce of rubbish weed to me for like 200 pounds
I think my english's getting real real bad
Cause this dumb bitch said I'm real real bad
No sprechen sie Dumb but I'm real, real good
Dark skinned Mike but I still feel bad
I'm a chill pill addict
I wonder if God's still magic
I wonder if Nas stillmatic
Down under the north it's still havoc
Why I run around wonderin', wanderin', ponderin' life
Life 'round here, when
Life ain't really been 'round here in some times
Sometimes it's no one 'round here

[Hook]

[Outro: Chance the Rapper & James Blake]
I ain't been 'round here in a minute
But you ain't been 'round a whole lot
My flesh went through the peoples in this peephole
And said the keyhole and kept the door locked
Part time love is the life 'round here
And wear that fake smile like a cape
Save yourself first, save yourself first
Part time love is the life 'round here
We're never done...
Save yourself first

Ellie Goulding & Angel Haze version

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding x4]
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day

[Verse 1: Ellie Goulding]
Now we're at square one
And we wait too long
Til' we're at square one
(We're never done)

[Chorus: Ellie Goulding x2]

[Verse 2: Angel Haze]
I wonder how you'd feel if you were locked in my mind
See you barely understand my thoughts sometimes
Little bit of depth and a little bit of God
Cause I swear that I be livin' in the dark sometimes
And it sets in here, nobody gets let in
'Til I let my emotions out on every single page and instrumental I'm left with
Shit, I wonder, will I ever really feel shit?
And if it all takes time and I ask why, will time eventually reveal this?
Cause... remedy, I'm searchin' for the remedy
I'm fucked up and my heart's just another ghost of my memory
Knock real hard on real real wood
Things still feel bad when they're real real good
And my brain's just a wrestlin' [?]
But the more you fuckin' know, less things feel real
Less things feel real, and the time shifts
And my mind shifts and ain't really anyone or anything I can really vibe with
Cause... I'm searchin', but I'm terrified
And by the time I find what I'm lookin' for, I'll be dead inside

[Outro: Angel Haze (Ellie Goulding)]
Cause part time love is the life round here
We're never done
(We're never done)
