"Hey Laura" as written by and Gregory Porter....
Hey Laura it's me
Sorry but I had to rang your doorbell so late
But there's something bothering me
I really am sorry but it just couldn't wait
Is there someone else instead of me
Go ahead and lie to me and I will believe
You're not in love with him and this fool can see
That the rivers of your love flow uphill to me

Hey Laura it's me
Sorry but I had to ring your doorbell so late
But there's something bothering me
I really am sorry but it just couldn't wait
With a healthy dose of make-believe
Won't you lie to me and make me believe
That you're in love with me and this fool can see
That the rivers of your love flow uphill to me

Hey Laura it's me
Sorry but I had to ring your doorbell so late
But there's something bothering me
All night long I just couldn't wait
With a healthy dose of make-believe
Go ahead and lie to me and make me believe
That you're in love with me oh this foul can see
That the rivers of your love flow uphill to me

Hey Laura it's me
Hey Laura it's me
Hey Laura it's me

    General CommentI love this song, he has a beautiful voice, it settles into a comfortable groove and then he delivers some killer lines: he's perfectly willing to believe that rivers flow uphill if she says so. It's a song about a man desperately, foolishly in love with someone who's just stringing him along.

    General CommentWhilst I can't help but love the song, I also can't help but think about it from Laura's point of view: imagine one of your best friends turning up late at night and behave like this towards you - maybe he is actually in the friend zone but doesn't know it?

    It's a cathartic experience telling someone you love them and selfish in the fact that you can "get over them" once you know their answer but she has nothing to gain except a horrible experience. I wonder what Laura thought of this.
