singalong: settle down by kimbra

This weekend's singalong is Kimbra's Settle Down. Kimbra is super cool. Her voice is unique, her lyrics are clever, her music has heft, and did you see her sweet moves? There might be a layer of darkness I'm missing in this song (especially judging from the music video), but I first was drawn to this song not only for its sweet tune, but because it seemed refreshingly rare to hear a song about wanting to get domestic come from a strong, artistic, empowered female voice.


SETTLE DOWN
by Kimbra

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Won't you settle down with me?
Settle down

We can settle at a table
A table for two
Won't you wine and dine with me?
Settle down

I wanna raise a child
I wanna raise a child
Won't you raise a child with me?
Raise a child

We'll call her Nebraska
Nebraska Jones
She'll have your nose
Just so you know

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Won't you settle down with me?
Settle down

Run from Angela Vickers
I saw her with you
Monday morning small talking on the avenue
She's got a fancy car
She wants to take you far
From the city lights and sounds deep into the dark

Star so light and star so bright
First star I see tonight!
Star so light and star so bright
Keep him by side!

I wanna settle down
I wanna settle down
Baby there's no need to run
I'll love you well
I wanna settle down
It's time to bring you down
On just one knee for now
Let's make our vows

Star so light and star so bright
First star I see tonight!
Star so light and star so bright
Keep him by side!
