On his brand new single “Pendulum,” Toronto’s Nelson Sobral has penned a heartbreaking ode to tumultuous love that is simultaneously perfectly fit for a sweaty, all-night, barroom whirlwind storm. Accompanied by the talented Selcuk Suna on horns, Sobral plays every other instrument himself on this breakthrough track from one of Toronto’s most brightly shining stars. With a March 12 release date, “Pendulum” will prove to be an audience-wrangler of a song as it makes its way along the boundless and curving highways of the world.

Lyrics

PENDULUM

VERSE 1
You only love me when Im on my knees
You made me feel like I was 17
Took me so long to know what I need
You went and took it all from me

CHORUS
They say good love is hard to find
It’s even harder baby when it’s blind
If you love something set it free
But you keep on coming back to me

VERSE 2
So much back and forth like a pendulum
I was the earth spinning round your sun
People always say what we should’ve done
But they weren’t there we were the only ones

CHORUS

BRIDGE
oh I pushed you away
Then I begged you to stay
Oh our hearts always break like they should
All of our days spent throwing away
the love inside our pendulum

SOLO

VERSE 3
Maybe one day when we’re old and grey
We’ll realize what we could’ve said
But it won’t matter either way
You always loved me more than words could say

CHORUS
