Benji Lewis – Fast Forward

One more amazing song by Benji Lewis.

Benji started working on “Fast Forward” near the end of 2018 during a writing session with LA producer Kid Froopy. Benji found the writing process with him to be quite easy, organic and enjoyable, and off the back of that he decided Kid Froopy would be the perfect person to work with on his next album.

“We started Fast Forward towards the end of 2018 and finished it off in early 2019. We got to talking before that first session and he said something to me about looking more inward, in regard to himself and his life. Almost instantly the opposite play on words “Inwards, Outwards” came to me, and then the rest of the song came to me quite easily and effortlessly.

This song is about getting out of a certain state of mind. Not wanting to think about or look at a current situation, relationship or particular person right now. We are never really stuck, and my subconscious was telling me this while I wrote the song. I was feeling like some much-needed alone time and craving change. I was listening to a lot of H.E.R. and Sabrina Claudio at the time. I’ve always loved rnb music and that’s just what we ended up creating with this one. It feels sexy, natural and honest to me.

After creating this song with Kid Froppy, I knew that I wanted to create my next body of work with him as well.”

LYRICS:

Inwards
Outwards
What is it that I see
Is it all coming back to me

But it’s different
I see right, to the other side

Aint we gettin tired
I say we change it up

Aint we gettin tired
I say we change it up
Over, over, over again

I wanna really change the way,
And now I gotta be alone
How else can I see this sight
And now I gotta be alone

Ehh ehh ehh ehh
Ehh ehh
Does it even matter
I say we change it up

Ehh ehh ehh ehh
Ehh ehh
Ain’t we getting tired

I say we change it up
I say we change it up

Another year
Another place
In someone, in someone, in someone else’s room

Fast forward, life is on
Yea I’m on fast forward

Aint we gettin tired
I say we change it up

Aint we gettin tired
I say we change it up
Over, over, over again

I wanna really change the way,
And now I gotta be alone
How else can I take this sight
And now I gotta be alone

Ehh ehh ehh ehh
Ehh ehh
Does it even matter
I say we change it up

Ehh ehh ehh ehh
Ehh ehh
Ain’t we getting tired

I say we change it up
I say we change it up

I say we change it up
Adlibs

I wanna really change the way,
And now I gotta be alone
How else can I see this sight
And now I gotta be alone

Ehh ehh ehh ehh
Ehh ehh
Does it even matter
I say we change it up

Ehh ehh ehh ehh
Ehh ehh
Ain’t we getting tired

I say we change it up
I say we change it up
