Mahalia – Simmer Lyrics

Simmer by Mahalia (feat. Burna Boy)


Sometimes, you love too hard
Sometimes, you go too far
Now I won’t want you if you need me
Real things do not come easy, no

Never been your average girl
So take time with me, take time
Baby, talk to me with some action
We can find a place for your passion, oh

Cool down, simmer
Cool now, please me
Cool now, sinner
Cool down, love
Cool now, simmer
Cool now, please me
Cool now, sinner
Cool down, love
Cool now, simmer
Cool now, please me
Cool now, sinner
Cool down, love, love

Sometimes, I want you close
Sometimes, I want my space
Just know I’m gonna call if I need you
It’s not my job to please you, no

Never been your average girl
So take time with me, take time
Baby, talk to me with some action
Think I got a place for your passion, oh

Cool down, simmer
Cool now, please me
Cool now, sinner
Cool down, love
Cool now, simmer
Cool now, please me
Cool now, simmer, simmer
Boy, you make it too hard for me to stay here
Boy, you’re making it hard for me to be your love, love
So cool now, simmer, simmer

Baby, don’t make me tell you this
I won’t waste no time, I’ll be proceeding quick
The way you’re moving lately got me feeling sick
Like sey you’ve forgotten who you’re dealing with
Man, ah real bread winner, me work nonstop
You no cook no dinner when I come back
Something wrong with ya, come out from that
If me walk and leave ya, me nah come back
(Cool down, simmer)

You’re falling, but you don’t wanna fall too hard
You’re falling, but you don’t wanna fall apart
‘Cause it might break if I give you my heart
And you hold on too hard (Too hard, too hard)

So cool down, simmer, simmer (Simmer, simmer)
Cool down, simmer
Cool now, please me
Cool now, sinner
Cool down, love
Cool now, simmer
Cool now, please me
Cool now, simmer, simmer (Si-si-simmer)
Boy, you make it too hot for me to stay here
Boy, you’re making it hard for me to be your love, love

Simmer, simmer
Simmer, simmer
