"Velvet" is the English version of Bagga Bownz' first single of their second album (2011).

The down tempo mellow start of the song is nothing like it seems, as at the end of the clip it turns much rougher into the typical rock/rap style Bagga Bownz normally personates. The lyrics (see below) describe a heart breaking tragedy, although you'll find it's not the typical love song, when you dig deeper into the meaning of the lyrics.

Bagga Bownz is: Mellow-C (vocals), L-Rock (raps), Eller van Buuren (guitars), Michiel Eilbracht (bass), Koen Herfst (drums)
Bagga Bownz' first album is called "Done with the Pain" and available on iTunes

I thought it would be easy
But it turned out wrong

I thought it would be gentle
But it turned out harsh

Then suddenly it's gone
from deep inside me
But the moment lingers on

I thought it would be velvet
But it turned out blue

I thought I would be living
But I burned out

The mirror looks at me
But what I'm seeing
Was not supposed to be
Can you wake me?

The dream I had
Became more and more like a nightmare
But what is right or wrong?

So I say
I won't let you down
Don't wanna loose you
I'll never let you go
I say Heyoo
I won't let you down
Hold on, I believe in you

They said I would be screaming
But I turned out hush

They said I would be fighting
But I turned out eased

Holding on to me
Don't wanna loose it
It was not supposed to be

I'm not gonna close the door
Don't wanna loose you now
I'm not gonna close my eyes
To all the little things I never saw before
All the little things I never said before
All the little things, little things
