Lyrics for My Oasis (feat. Burna Boy) by Sam Smith:

Verse 1: Sam Smith
Keep thinkin' that I'm seein' water
You're playing tricks on me in the sun
See your shadow in the courtyard
Stays until the day is done
The desert don't end, the rain don't fall
And I can't pretend I don't want you all
'Cause I want you all
You all, you all, you all

Pre-Chorus: Sam Smith
Oh, babe, I really need you
My feelings gettin' deeper
My mind is in a free fall
But there's nothing I can do when it comes to you
You play with my emotions
I'm flowin' like the ocean
I pray for your devotion
'Cause there's nothing I can do when it comes to you

Chorus: Sam Smith
My oa, my oa, my oasis
My oa, my oa, my oasis
My oa, my oa, 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 movin' like that
Na, you wey I choose, but you make it so hard
I gave you my heart, you're makin' it so dark
But there's nothing I can do when it comes to you
You takin' it for granted
A lot of silence, the river don't end
'Cause I want you all, yeah
You all, you all, you all

Pre-Chorus: Sam Smith
Oh, babe, I really need you
My feelings gettin' deeper
My mind is in a free fall
But there's nothing I can do when it comes to you
You play with my emotions
I'm flowin' like the ocean
I pray for your devotion
'Cause there's nothing I can do when it comes to you

Chorus: Sam Smith
My oa, my oa, my oasis
My oa, my oa, my oasis
My oa, my oa, my oasis
There’s nothing I can do when it comes to you
My oa, my oa, my oasis
My oa, my oa, my oasis
My oa, my oa, my oasis
There’s nothing I can do when it comes to you

Outro: Burna Boy
I remember me tell you...

Song Facts

Since Sam Smith’s last album in 2017, there has been a steady stream of new singles. The third Sam Smith album, originally entitled To Die For was planned for Spring 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic rendered the title and some of the content unsuitable. Now titled simply SS3 Sam’s third album is still awaited.

This track, co-written with Jimmy Napes and Burna Boy, is a mid-tempo love song with a strong beat. The lyric draws on the themes of developing love and emotional insecurity.

In its review Billboard Magazine wrote:

Sam Smith is straddling two worlds — the past, where he sang soulful, heartbroken ballads, and the present, where the star has begun to present more pop-forward tracks. On “My Oasis,” Smith fuses the two into an entrancing, club/bedroom hybrid single, complete with a drilling beat and hypnotic bells to heighten the mood. When Nigerian superstar Burna Boy jumps on the track, he blends in his own style into the mix, making their latest song complex and vastly different from anything else you’ll hear today.
