Emily King – “Ordinary Heart” | New Music


Like many music listeners, I first got introduced to New York based singer Emily King in 2007 with her album, East Side Story.  The album, was a beautiful introduction to the singer who is Emily King with solid production and personal lyrics.

Since then, King changed her style up a little – less R&B and more soulful and folk-like; the new direction heard with her 2011 EP, Seven, showing her songwriting progression.

Now take a listen to new song “Ordinary Heart,” penned by King and Jeremy Most and showcasing King’s beautiful voice with matching lyrics – which you can read below whilst taking a listen.

Lyrics:
baby I don’t want to lead you on
feed you empty promises and never follow through
there’s a lot of things that I do wrong
if you’re looking for the perfect one this aint for you

’cause what I’ve got is just an ordinary heart
but I’ll give it more than anybody
you can always trust this ordinary heart

maybe I don’t want to let you down
tell you that I’ll always be around and miss my cue
I can be a lover and a fool
every now and then I lose my cool that’s what I do

’cause what I’ve got is just an ordinary heart
but I’ll give it more than anybody
you can always trust this ordinary heart

I know you’re scared that I might change
or even worse I’ll stay the same

’cause what I’ve got is just an ordinary heart
but I’ll give it more than anybody
you can always trust this ordinary heart
