I love a bit of easy-listening in the evening.

John Legend is a great artist to listen to on the weekend when you need to unwind and relax before the working week starts all over again!

Listen to this song and try and put the correct words in each gap.

Before you listen, try reading through the lyrics and guessing which words are missing.

I'm trying to find the_2_ to say, please stay
It's written all over my face, I can't

They brought it all in anyway
_7_ don't fill up your head with he-said, she-said
It seems like you just don't know
The radio's on, you're tuning me out,
I'm trying to _8_ you're turning me down
