Oblivion
Grimes Lyrics


Another walk about after dark
It's my point of view
'Cause someone could break your neck
Coming up behind you, always coming and you'd never have a clue

I never look behind, all the time
I will wait forever, always looking straight
Thinking, counting, all the hours you wait

(Ooh, ah) (la, la, la, la, la)
See you on a dark night (ooh, ah)
See you on a dark night (ooh, ah) (la, la, la, la, la)
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night

And no, I'm not a jerk, I would ask
If you could help me out
It's hard to understand
'Cause when you're really by yourself
It's hard to find someone to hold your hand

And now it's good to be tough with me
But I will wait forever
I need someone now to look into my eyes and tell me
"Girl, you know you gotta watch your health"

To look into my eyes and tell me
La, la, la, la, la
To look into my eyes and tell me
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Oh, oh
Oh, oh

See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night (oh)
See you on a dark night (oh)
See you on a dark night (oh)
See you on a dark night (oh)
See you on a dark night (oh)
See you on a dark night (oh)
See you on a dark night (ooh, ah)
See you on a dark night (ooh, ah)
See you on a dark night (ooh, ah) (la, la, la, la, la)
See you on a dark night (ooh, ah) (oh, oh)

"Over The Wall" - Dc Daniels

https://youtu.be/kCYRrcNRNws

Sonder are my thoughts of you,
Mysterious my ways.
Confounded are out short lives,
Eternal in our ways.

For those who never stepped across, the universal bridge...
The sky is made of diamonds,
And it just is what it is.

The path of life,
It ain't walked, our souls are said to fly.
A broken wing ill mend for you,
Just look up to the sky.

Two brothers they talk to me,
Estranged for such a time.
One has me by the mind,
The other my heart finds.

My purpose here my job to do
The people of this land,
Toss them over this here wall
And softly they shall land.

A wall between the brothers two,
We walk it all the time.
Standing there invisibly,
Beyond the test of time.

I've tried my best I've spoken to,
The brothers that I know.
This old animosity,
Vexation needs to go.

I myself I walk the night,
Searching for lost souls.
These children of the night you see,
With wind their candle blows.

I am a sinner man,
A commoner you see.
The scars of my life,
And painful memories.

My purpose here my job to do,
The people of this land.
Toss them over this here wall,
And softly they shall land.

In the darkest sleepless nights,
The truth do I see.
The evils ones with wicked hearts,
Blinded may they be.

Speechless is the one to hear of such a tragedy,
No words so kind can heal the heart of sadness such as this.

A child born into the world
No family to kiss,
Throw their everlasting soul
Into the land of bliss.

The light it flows so warm and soft,
A gentle loving kiss.
All the pain forever gone,
And none shall he miss.

My purpose here my job to do,
The people of this land.
Toss them over this here wall,
And softly they shall land.

I never walk about after dark
It's my point of view
'Cause someone could break your neck
Coming up behind you
Always coming and you'd never have a clue
I never look behind all the time
I will wait forever
Always looking straight
Thinking, counting all the hours you wait
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
And no, I'm not a jerk
I would ask if you could help me out
It's hard to understand
'Cause when you're running by yourself
It's hard to find someone to hold your hand
You know it's good to be tough like me
But I will wait forever
I need someone else
To look into my eyes and tell me
"Girl, you know you've got to watch your health"
To look into my eyes and tell me
La la la la la
To look into my eyes and tell me
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night

Ok, I'll do it:

I never walk about after dark
It's my point of view
'Cause someone could break your neck
Coming up behind you
Always coming and you'd never have a clue
I never look behind all the time
I will wait forever
Always looking straight
Thinking, counting all the hours you wait

See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night

And no, I'm not a jerk
I would ask if you could help me out

'Cause when you're running by yourself
It's hard to find someone to hold your hand
You know it's good to be tough like me
But I will wait forever
I need someone else
To look into my eyes and tell me
"Girl, you know you've got to watch your health"

To look into my eyes and tell me
La la la la la
To look into my eyes and tell me
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la
La la la la la

See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night
See you on a dark night

I've only now realized how interesting this music video is with the songs context. Knowing she was assaulted and that this song is about feeling unsafe at night, afraid of being attacked (presumably by a man) this music video feel like confronting masculinity (as almost all of the strangers shown are men of different ages and all the shows/activities are generally considered masculine). It feels like a video of trying to almost shock therapy yourself by surrounding yourself with what scares you (like men in general after one attacks you) and learning to be comfortable in that space, both interacting with them and just as someone who happens to be existing in that same space.

Yep you got it

я русская и не знала перевод, но определенно чувствовала дискомфорт, после того как прочитала ваш переведенный комментарий стало понятнее, спасибо 🙏

I fully empathise and am sorry for anyone who has been through that awful thing, but I highly doubt the song or the video is about that.

i have been trying to research if this song is from the 80’s. I’m so confused but I guess she originally made it!!!
