WHAT IS THE SONG MY OASIS ALL ABOUT?

This is a love song. It has the theme of unrequited love. The artistes are head over heels in love with a particular lady who doesn’t feel the same way about them. Despite the lady’s shabby display of affection, and lack of commitment; the artistes reveal that they don’t intend letting her go, and they don’t also plan on relenting or desisting from showing love to the lady because they love her wholeheartedly and can’t get her off their minds.

They find solace, joy and peace in her presence. They can’t control how they feel, and what they feel for her, even though she is taking them for granted, and this leaves them sad.

Lyrically: The lyrics are soothing, couth, heartwarming and interesting to the ears. They are also well written and organized. The lyrics also help expand listeners’ vocabulary. The song has two verses taken by Sam Smith and Burna Boy repectively. The chorus was taken twice by Sam Smith alone. Also, the hook was taken thrice by Sam Smith alone. The artistes sang in Standard English, however, Burnaboy sang in pidgin in some of the lines in verse 2. Their lyrics flowed well on the beat.

Vocal: The artistes have appealing vocals; I so love Sam Smith’s vocal in particular. So soothing, melodic and engaging. There was consistency in their vocal quality. The beat at some point, however, over shadowed their vocals; it was like the beat was competing with their vocals.

Melody: The song has an engaging rhythm. The rhythm flows well, and there was consistency in the style of rhythm. It is a slow song, but it is melodious. The major instruments used in the composition of the song include piano, drum, guitar and harp

MEANING OF SOME WORDS

YOU ARE PLAYING TRICKS ON ME IN THE SUN

To be deceitful or manipulative; to make someone believe you have profound love for them, when you actually don’t. It also means not coming out straight about how how you feel for someone.

In the context of this song, the lady appears like one who has deep feelings, but doesn’t.

SEE YOUR SHADOW IN THE COURTYARD

A courtyard is an open area in a big house. “Shadow in the courtyard” may be used to emphasize how this lady they love preoccupies their minds, and how they desire her presence around them.

DEEPER FEELINGS

This is profound love characterized by the desire to always be around the one you love.

MY MIND IS IN FREE FALL

He has no control of his emotions. He can’t control what he feels for her. They are unconstrained

PLAYING WITH ONE’S EMOTIONS

This is when you make someone believe that you are deeply in love, and that you desire to be with the person, when you don’t mean it. It also means leading someone on with no plans of having anything to do with the person.

GIVE YOUR HEART TO SOMEONE

This means to surrender yourself to one person in such a way that your time, attention and commitment is for that person alone, and it is not shared with another person.

GIVING YOUR ALL TO SOMEONE

Being available for someone you love in all ways.

DARK HEART

A heart that is filled with unhappiness, loneliness and negatives.

LYRICS TO OASIS BY BURNABOY AND SAM SMITH

VERSE 1 (SAM SMITH)

Keep thinking that I’m seeing water

You’re playing tricks on me in the sun

See your shadow in the courtyard

Stays until the day is gone

The desert don’t end

The rain don’t fall

And I can’t pretend that I don’t want you all

‘Cause I want you all

You all, you all, you all

CHORUS (SAM SMITH)

Oh babe, I really need you

My feelings getting deeper

My mind is in a free fall

But there’s nothing I can do when it comes to you

You playing with my emotions

I’m flowing like the ocean

I pray for your devotion

‘Cause there’s nothing I can do when it comes to you

HOOK

My only, my only, my oasis

My only, my only, my oasis

My only, my only, my oasis

There’s nothing I can do when it comes to you.

VERSE 2 (BURNA BOY)

Wait a minute, tell me why you’re moving like that

Na, you wey I choose, but you make it so hard

I gave you my heart; you’re making it so dark

But there’s nothing I can do when it comes to you

You’re taking it for granted

A lot of silence; the river don’t end

‘Cause I want you all, yeah

You all, you all, you all

CHORUS (SAM SMITH)

Oh babe, I really need you

My feelings getting deeper

My mind is in a free fall

But there’s nothing I can do when it comes to you

You playing with my emotions

I’m flowing like the ocean

I pray for your devotion

‘Cause there’s nothing I can do when it comes to you

HOOK

My only, my only, my oasis

My only, my only, my oasis

My only, my only, my oasis

There’s nothing I can do when it comes to you.

OUTRO

SAM SMITH

My only, my only, my oasis

My only, my only, my oasis

My only, my only, my oasis

There’s nothing I can do when it comes to you

BURNABOY

Remember say me tell you say, you are my Oasis, you are my everything
