"Oath" is a song by English singer Cher Lloyd featuring vocals of American rapper Becky G. It was released on October 2, 2012, as the second single from the American version of Lloyd's debut studio album, Sticks & Stones, and the fourth single overall.

BackgroundEdit

"Oath" was originally written by Rebbeca Gomez but was brought to Cher Lloyd by Dr. Luke. It was later modified by songwriters Ammar Malik and Emily Wright, along with help from producers Dr. Luke, Cirkut and Robopop, for inclusion on Lloyd's second studio album, slated for release in 2013. However, when it was revealed that Lloyd's debut album, Sticks & Stones, was set to be revised for the American and Australian markets, Lloyd's producers decided to use the track as one of the release's lead singles, and Lloyd asked Gomez to appear on the track with her to sing one of the verses. Thus, "Oath" was released as the album's second single, following "Want U Back", in both the United States and Australia, and also featured on the version of the album released in Japan. The track itself premiered on New York radio station Z100 FM on 7 September 2012. In promotion of the single, Lloyd performed it live solo on Today and Live! with Kelly and Michael and with Becky G on The X Factor USA, in front of her mentor and manager, Simon Cowell.

LyricsEdit

Yo, my best friend, best friend til the very end
Cause best friends, best friends don’t have to pretend
You need a hand, and I’m right there right beside you
You in the dark, I’ll be the bright light to guide you
‘Member the time, time, times sneaking out the house
All of the time, time, times that you had your doubts
And don’t forget all the trouble we got into
We got something you can’t undo, do

Laughing so damn hard
Crashed your dad’s new car
All the scars we share
I promise, I swear

Wherever you go, just always remember
That you gotta home for now and forever
And if you get low, just call me whenever
This is my oath to you
Wherever you go, just always remember
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
And we’ll never change, no matter the weather
This is my oath to you

I know I drive you crazy, hmm... sometimes
I know I call you lazy, and that’s most times
But you complete me, and that’s no lie
You are my tuxedo, and i’m your bow tie
We in the car, sing, sing, singin' our song
Walk in the building, tear it down, like we King Kong
And in my eyes, you could do, do no wrong
You got a best friend sing, sing along

Laughing so damn hard
Crashed your dad’s new car
All the scars we share
I promise, I swear

Wherever you go, just always remember
That you gotta home for now and forever
And if you get low, just call me whenever
This is my oath to you
Wherever you go, just always remember
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
And we’ll never change, no matter the weather
This is my oath to you

Ohhh..., I’ll never let you go
Ohhh...woah, this is my oath to you
Just thought that you should know
Ohhh...woah, this is my oath to you

Yeah…

Wherever you go, just always remember
That you gotta home for now and forever
And if you get low, just call me whenever
This is my oath to you
Wherever you go, just always remember
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
And we’ll never change, no matter the weather
This is my oath to you

Ohhh...You should know, you should know, you should know, You should know, yeah
Ohhh...Woah, this is my oath to you
Ohhh...Wherever you go just always remember,
You're never alone, we're birds of a feather
Ohhh... And we'll never change no matter the weather
This is my oath to you
