Retrograde
James Blake Lyrics


You're on your own
In a world you've grown
Few more years to go
Don't let the hurdle fall
So be the girl you loved
Be the girl you loved

I'll wait
So show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else
We're alone now
I'll wait
So show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else
We're alone now

Suddenly I'm hit
It's the starkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
And your friends won't come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

I'll wait
So show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else
We're alone now
(We're alone now)
I'll wait (we're alone now)
(We're alone now)
(We're alone now)
I'll wait (we're alone now)
(We're alone now)
(We're alone now)
(We're alone now)
(We're alone now)

Suddenly I'm hit
It's the starkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
And your friends won't come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

You're on your own
In a world you've grown
Few more years to go,
Don't let the hurdle fall
So be the girl you loved,
Be the girl you loved

I'll wait
So show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now
I'll wait
So show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now

Suddenly, I'm hit
It's the starkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
And your friends won't come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

I'll wait
So show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now (we're alone now)
(we're alone now)
I'll wait (we're alone now)
(We're alone now)
(We're alone now)
I'll wait (we're alone now)
(we're alone now)
(we're alone now)
(we're alone now)
(we're alone now)

Suddenly, I'm hit
It's the starkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
And your friends won't come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

You’re on your own
In a world you’ve grown
Few more years to go
Don’t let the hurdle fall
So be the girl you loved
Be the girl you loved

I’ll wait
So show me why you’re strong
Ignore everybody else
We’re alone now
I’ll wait
So show me why you’re strong
Ignore everybody else
We’re alone now

Suddenly I’m hit
It's the starkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
And your friends won’t come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

I’ll wait
So show me why you’re strong
Ignore everybody else
We’re alone now

I’ll wait

Suddenly I’m hit
It's the starkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
And your friends won’t come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

You're on your own, in a world you've grown
Few more years to go,
Don't let the hurdle fall
So be the girl you loved,
Be the girl you loved

Chorus:
I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now
I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now

Suddenly I'm hit
Is this darkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
When you friends won't come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

Chorus:
I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now
We're alone now
We're alone now
I'll wait
We're alone now
We're alone now
I'll wait
We're alone now
We're alone now
We're alone now
We're alone now

8 years later and this song and its production still feel innovative.

@Squid X it does seem pretty cheap but you can see what they're trying to do on a shoestring budget I guess

@Rubén Martínez if you don't have a subwoofer then headphones are the next best thing, you can get pretty decent base from even $30 in-ear headphones (though obviously you just hear it rather than feel it in your body)

this video is more and more hideous and painful

Colton Sparks

Even some of his early dubstep sounds like it was made a thousand years in the future. Shit kills me.

Que maravilla 😻

I think the reason I like this song so very much, apart from Blake's beautiful rendering, is that it speaks to where I am as a 65 year old African American woman. I've seen some hard times some of which resulted from my own bad decisions hence the reason "...in a world you've grown" truly resonates with me. My friends ARE gone some of whom I lost decades ago to death and others to life. And yet, I feel very much inspired to keep keepin' on, to not "let the hurdle fall". I've traveled the world ALONE challenging myself to go forth and see for myself-- first to South Africa at 58 (a year after Mandela's death) and then to Algeria & Turkey just last year. I REFUSE to surrender before my time. Come heck or high water, if HE permits, I will be taking the COVID vaccine for the girl I love.

I've never felt compelled to write a comment on youtube before, and I know this is two years late, but I find your comment very inspirational. It really gives me hope, and some motivation to keep pushing. I hope you're doing well!
