1. Lyric Analysis for Mura Masa- When You Need Me

2. Lyrics for When You Need Me Ooohh Aaahh Promise I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Aahhh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Aahhh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise I'll get there I'll get there Promise I'll get there I'll get there Promise Aahhh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Aahhh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there Promise Ooohh I'll get there I'll get there

3. Song/lyrics choice overview The lyrics for our chosen song are minimal, only containing the words “Promise, ooh, i’ll get there,i’ll get there”. We chose this in order to show people that simplicity is sometimes best. We live in a world of over complicated things whether that is gadget or politics and we forget to take a step back and really look into the smaller details. We chose a lyrically minimal song to not only emphasise the focus on the few lyrics but also the music video and the themes it portrays. Our plan for our music video is for it to resemble a modern day treasure hunt with a party being the prize and the lyrics work perfectly with the plot. The repetition of the words “I’ll get there" not only speaks literally about the characters making it to the house party but also metaphorically, about growing up and getting to goals in life. Mura Masa has a common pattern of simple lyrics, as seen with one of his other popular songs Love$ick. My partner and I both agreed on choosing a song with minimal lyrics to change the common idea that a song must have many differentiating lyrics to show meaning. We chose to do this in order for the audience to think more about the little information that they are given. “I need you I’m a lovesick f**k I want you I’m lovesick f**k”

4. Lyric structure While the lyrics remain virtually the same throughout, the structure changes slightly throughout in terms of the order of the few specific lyrics used. The use of interjections at the start of the song creates a soft and calm feeling that resembles the start of a treasure hunt. After this, the interjections are integrated into other lyrics which continues the calm feeling but also contrasts with the other lyrics which give off an aura of importance, eagerness and urgency. The repetition of the lyrics reciprocates what will appear in the music video, a long and tiresome treasure hunt. However, the abrupt end with the words “I’ll get there” cuts the tiring adventure short and shows the audience that if you keep working towards something the end can come at anytime and make the adventure worth it.
