Bastille – Shut Off the Lights Lyrics

I, I’m lost in my head again
Time travellin’
Runnin’, runnin’ away with darkness, my only friend
Don’t wanna do this all again
You pull me back down to earth
Close off your hands around, hands around me
Grace landin’ onto your bed
There you are

 In my head, there’s a beat
It’s the beat that you make
When you’re movin’ your body
You prove that I can’t escape, I can’t escape
Got my heart in your hands
And your hands on my chest
And my chest is a breath
It’s the breath that you take away

 And you said, “Shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance”
Hey, oh-oh
You said, “Just shut off the lights, we don’t need thеm to dance”
Oh, oh
You said, “Just shut off the lights, shut off the lights”
Whеn drunk, we’re invincible
No bar went quietly into the night
This dream is our universe
You are my gravity tonight
No talk of the future now
Dark thoughts, you’re shakin’ ’em, takin’ ’em out
This rhythm that we create sets me straight

 In my head, there’s a beat
It’s the beat that you make
When you’re movin’ your body
You prove that I can’t escape, I can’t escape
Got my heart in your hands
And your hands on my chest
And my chest is a breath
It’s the breath that you take away

 And you said, “Shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance”
Hey, oh-oh
You said, “Just shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance”
Oh, oh-oh
You said, “Just shut off the lights, shut off the lights”
Last night, you said, “Empty your head”
Be here with me
Shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance
We’ll tune out the noise for a moment
You said, “Let’s just shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance”

 Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Oh-oh, you said, “Let’s just shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance”
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
(Oh, no we don’t, no we don’t, no we don’t, no we don’t, no we don’t, no we don’t, no we don’t, no we don’t)
Oh-oh, you said, “Let’s just shut off the lights, oh”
Shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance

 Last night, you said, “Empty your head”
Be here with me
Shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance
We’ll tune out the noise for a moment
You said, “Let’s just shut off the lights, we don’t need them to dance”
