Back To Black Lyrics – Amy Winehouse

1764

Back to Black is a song by an English singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse, who passed away on 23 July, 2011. She was famous for her unusual, powerful vocals and a peculiar eclectic mix of genres – soul, jazz, and R&B. The track Back to Black was released on 30 April, 2007, serving as the 3rd single from Amy’s sophomore studio album of the same name. By the way, Winehouse won five Grammy awards for this album setting the record as the first British female to win such a number of Grammys. The song Back to Black was written by the singer in collaboration with Mark Ronson. The accompanying black-and-white music video, which was directed by Phil Griffin, depicts a funeral procession where Amy mourns over her crashed love affair. There is a symbolic grave in the video with the words “R.I.P. the Heart of Amy Winehouse”. After the singer’s death the track re-appeared on the UK Singles chart, getting at number 8. Now, as the world has lost Amy Winehouse, the song and the video acquired a new meaning. You will probably get shivers if you watch the Back to Black music video and listen to its lyrics. The former is not only artistically shot but also has an air of mystery around it. Despite all the nasty words said about Amy when alive, she will always remain a legend, whatever haters say.

Amy Winehouse – Back To Black Song Words

He left no time to regret
Kept his d-ck wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I’ll go back to black

We only said good-bye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to…..

I go back to us

I love you much
It’s not enough
You love blow and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

Black, black, black, black, black, black, black,
I go back to
I go back to

We only said good-bye with words

You go back to her
And I go back to black
