All I seem to get out of it is a need to slow down a bit Why can't I just take it easy? Living hard holds nothing for me All I seem to get out of it is a need to slow down a bit Why can't I just take it easy? Living hard holds nothing for me For me For me For me For me For me For me For me And it brings me down so I get back up and get on with it Call it force of habit Problems aren't known to solve themselves I do my best Still it And it brings me down so I get back up and get on with it Call it force of habit Problems aren't known to solve themselves I do my best Still it feels like All I seem to get out of it is a need to slow down a bit Why can't I just take it easy? Living hard holds nothing for me All I seem to get out of it is a need to slow down a bit Why can't I just take it easy? Living hard holds nothing for me For me For me For me For me For me For me For me

Right now at peace and far away That's how I like to spend my day Would you be kind enough to stay With you it's better anyway When you're around you take me to that place And it's fine I find my pace Amongst patterns on your dress Meshing the sound that seeps into the space Left about when we embrace Finding home there nonetheless So Come with me I'm on my way to a party my friend put together earlier today Can't you see it's only you that I want And it's driving me out of my mind I'm just hopelessly stark raving Hopelessly stark raving Hopelessly stark raving Hopelessly stark raving Come with me I'm on my way to a party my friend put together earlier today Can't you see it's only you that I want And it's driving me out of my mind I'm just hopelessly stark raving Just hopelessly stark raving Take me far away Take me far away now Me far away Take me far away away now Take me far away Take me far away Take me far away now Me far away Take me far away me far away now Take me far away

I don't think I can take you where you want to go It's not up to me now You're afraid of feeling how I do You say time is on our side Pulled underneath the tide I look up from below There is nothing left to say You look the other way It's there you now belong It's there you now belong It's there you now belong It's there you now belong It's there you now belong It's there you now belong It's there you now belong It's there you now belong It's there you now belong The sky shows signs of thunder I'm left to ponder on my own The static doesn't bother Through these waves I father new roads You will probably be fine You never cross the line And that'll keep you safe Dreamers choose the other route Our futures never out 'cause We don't have for long And we don't have for long We don't have for long And we don't have for long And we don't have for long And we don't have for long And we don't have for long And we don't have for long And we don't have for long For long For long For long For long For long For long

Show me what you like to wear in the summertime In the summertime It's so pleasant with you there in the summertime In the summertime Tell me what you like to do in the summertime In the summertime Take me where you like to go in the summertime In the summertime I don't mind if we find it to be hard to find Just hold my hand when you can hold it and kiss me grand I've seen it, I've heard it, and I've felt it all around Made sure to take time to enjoy the one I found I've seen it, I've heard it, and I've felt it all around Made sure to take time to enjoy the one I found So I So I So I So I So I So I So I So I So I So I So I So I

Do you, do you, do you still? Do you, do you, do you still? Do you, do you, do you still? Do you, do you, do you still? Used to think when you could, when you felt like you would (Do you, do you, do you still?) Used to sit when I stood, when you tried to be good (Do you, do you, do you still?) And you'd take it all in, every loss like a win (Do you, do you, do you still?) Drew daydreams on your skin, when daydreams drew you in (Do you, do you, do you still?) And I don't even know now If I sink or if I swim (Do you, do you, do you still?) And I don't even know how (Do you, do you, do you still?) And I don't even know now If I sink or if I swim (Do you, do you, do you still?) And I don't even know how (Do you, do you, do you still?) Do you, do you, do you still? And do you, do you, do you still think about me? And do you, do you, do you still think about us? And do you, do you, do you still think about me? And do you, do you, do you still think about us? And do you, do you, do you still think about me? And do you, do you, do you still think about us? And do you, do you, do you still think about me? And do you, do you, do you still think about us? Do you, do you, do you still? Do you, do you, do you still? Do you, do you, do you still?

about

El Yunque is the third album from American artist YUS, following 2010's Palms and 2014's Talisman. Inspired and named after the tropical rain forest in Puerto Rico, it combines elements of latin, afrobeat, electronic, and pop musics to form its own unique sound. It was created between Spring 2012 and May 2015, and revised in 2018.
