LYRICS

If love is overrated, let me be the one that is naïve

If love is overrated, let me be the one that is deceived

Let me find that your hands that are touching me

It’s not the hand that’s supposed to be, your lips an illusion

Let me be the only fool for your embrace, let me fall upon my face

I like this strange illusion

If love is overrated, why is it the only thing I serve

If love is overrated, why is the one I’m in the one that I deserve

I can tell you, oh it feels so real, every touch that I steal

Your arms an illusion

Let me be the only fool for your embrace, let me fall upon my face

I’ll like this strange illusion

Whoa I’m ok, with loves never-ending dream

It’s a risk I’ll like to take

In the hope I’ll never wake

From this thing I call my fate reality

If love is overrated, let me be the one that is naïve

If love is overrated, let me be the one that is deceived

Let me find that your hands that are touching me

Is not the hands that’s supposed to be, your lips an illusion

Let me be the only fool that you embrace, let me fall upon my face

I like this strange illusion

And whoa I’m ok

Love’s never-ending dream

That’s a risk I’ll like to take

In the hopes I’ll never wake from this thing I call my fate reality

If love is overrated, I’ll like overrated

If love is overrated, I’ll love overrated

If love is overrated, I am obsessed with overrated

If love is overrated, I’m in love with overrated.

Overrated.

I’m blessed to hear another the equal of NatKingCole in my lifetime, born in ‘68 you would be the velvet verve of my age. Can’t promise I won’t cover this one as well, would be a dream to work with you some day brother, Revival Song got me back in the Saddle again and I’m so GRATEFUL. I’m in stage four of autoimmune induced cirrhosis yet somehow I keep growing as an artist in large part to contributions such as this, of faith... hope... and love... Love is God’s GREATEST Gift❤️
Camille Beckford
This just soothes my soul. Can’t wait to hear all this good music live, next month. 🥰

He is one of those rare and very gifted artists who has a unique sound, lush voice and belongs in the company of such other great artists like Sarah Vaughn, Phoebe Snow, Nancy Wilson, Al Jarreau, Shirley Horn and Ella Fitzgerald. So glad Gregory Porter came along to remind us that real singers, those that can hold their audience with raw talent and not balloons and confetti still exist.

Oh my darling Gregory, how your songs hit my heart and soul. I love you.
