Basia – Time and Tide

Posted by

Barbara Stanisława Trzetrzelewska[4][ˈbaɕa tʂɛtʂɛˈlɛfska] (listen), better known as Basia (born 30 September 1954), is a Polish singer-songwriter and recording artist noted for her Latin-inspired jazz-pop music. She began singing professionally in various Polish bands from the late 1960s throughout the 1970s. After relocating to the UK in 1981, she rose to fame as a singer in the British sophisti-pop trio Matt Bianco. By 1986, Basia and her band mate Danny White had left the group to focus on her solo career. Signed to Epic Records, the singer enjoyed a very successful international career between 1987 and 1995, particularly in the USA where her first two albums, Time and Tide and London Warsaw New York, were platinum-certified, million-unit sellers.

During that era her biggest hits were “Time and Tide“, “New Day for You“, “Promises“, “Baby You’re Mine“, “Cruising for Bruising“, and “Drunk on Love“. She had also built up a very loyal fan base in Japan and the Philippines. Following a lengthy semi-hiatus caused by personal tragedies, Basia made a comeback to regular recording and performing in the late 2000s. She currently releases her music through independent labels and has an established position on the worldwide smooth jazz scene. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basia

Time and Tide

Basia

It’s hard for me to stop my heart
Love never knows
When the time is right
I don’t want to hurt
Anybody but
Can’t help loving you

I never felt like this before
I know this is passion
Worth waiting for
Let love take take its course
That’s the only thing
For us to do

We got time, oh baby,
There’s no rush
Gonna be a better
Day for us
Hang on
And I will
Wait for you
Our love will always stay as good as new

Time and tide
Nothing and no one
Can stop us now
For better for worse
This time I’m sure
It’s gonna last

How can I stop my heart?
Love never knows
When the time is right
Don’t want to hurt
Anybody
Don’t want to make them cry
Don’t want to make them cry

We’ve got time, oh baby
There’s no rush
Gonna be a better
Day for us
Hang on
And I will wait for you
Our love will always stay as good as
NewIt’s a matter of time

Only a matter of
Time and tide
Nothing and no one
Can stop us now
For better for worse
This time I’m sure
It’s gonna last
Gonna last forever

We got time, oh baby
There’s no rush
Gonna be a better 
Day for us
Hang on
And I will wait for you
