Jimmy Butler Music Video: “Jimmy Out Loud” Cover

New, comments

Here is a music video my brother Kevin and I wrote. It’s a cover of the original song by Ed Sheeran called “Thinking out loud.”

The image of that jersey hanging in the rafters is by Liberty Ballers’ in house Photoshop wiz, Matt del Rio, original creator and wearer of the now legendary and popular Mike Scott Hive tattoo. Be sure to give him a follow on Twitter @mdelNBA.

If you’ve been holding your breath for the Sixers to “run it back,” don’t worry we’re with you. It seems plausible-to-likely they could be one of the most talented teams in the league next season, even if everyone would have to sacrifice in role a bit. But it’s worth it. We’re hoping to have a couple more videos for Tobias Harris and maybe someone else too.... stay tuned.

The vocals are my friend Dan Berk. Check him out on instagram @danberkmusic. He has a nice voice.

These are the lyrics to the Jimmy cover:

‘Jimmy Out Loud’

When your legs don’t work like they used to before

And you’re not quite as quick on your feet

Will your jersey hang from the rafters above?

Will your legacy feel complete?

And Jimmy I’ll be loving you ‘til infinity

And Jimmy my heart would forever fall for 23

And I’m think about how

champions come together in mysterious ways

you’re now a part of the process man

We need an adult in the room in a serious way

And I just want to tell you to stay

So Jimmy now

take us into your big strong arms

Take our $190 million dollars

You know you’re the closer we need

I’m thinking out loud

Maybe we found love right here on broad

So Jimmy now

This team can be sensational

Even if you’re a bit confrontational

You’re Philly’s beating heart

I’m thinking out loud

maybe we found love right here on broad.

Here are Ed Sheeran’s original lyrics so you can see what we were playing around with when we wanted to parody/cover it.

When your legs don’t work like they used to before

And I can’t sweep you off of your feet

Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love

Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks

And darling I will be loving you ‘til we’re 70

And baby my heart could still fall as hard at 23

And I’m thinking ‘bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

Maybe just the touch of a hand

Oh me I fall in love with you every single day

And I just wanna tell you I am

So honey now

Take me into your loving arms

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Place your head on my beating heart

I’m thinking out loud

Maybe we found love right where we are

When my hair’s all but gone and my memory fades

And the crowds don’t remember my name

When my hands don’t play the strings the same way, mm

I know you will still love me the same

’Cause honey your soul can never grow old, it’s evergreen

Baby your smile’s forever in my mind and memory

I’m thinking ‘bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways

Maybe it’s all part of a plan

I’ll just keep on making the same mistakes

Hoping that you’ll understand

But baby now

Take me into your loving arms

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Place your head on my beating heart

I’m thinking out loud

That maybe we found love right where we are, oh

So baby now

Take me into your loving arms

Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars

Oh darling, place your head on my beating heart

I’m thinking out loud

That maybe we found love right where we are

Oh maybe we found love right where we are

And we found love right where we are
