Blinding Lights
The Weeknd Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yeah

I've been tryna call
I've been on my own for long enough
Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe
I'm going through withdrawals
You don't even have to do too much
You can turn me on with just a touch, baby

I look around and Sin City's cold and empty (oh)
No one's around to judge me (oh)
I can't see clearly when you're gone

I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night
Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust
Hey, hey, hey

I'm running out of time
'Cause I can see the sun light up the sky
So I hit the road in overdrive, baby

Oh, the city's cold and empty (oh)
No one's around to judge me (oh)
I can't see clearly when you're gone

I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night
Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust

I'm just walking by to let you know (by to let you know)
I could never say it on the phone (say it on the phone)
Will never let you go this time (ooh)

I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
Hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey

I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch

The city is described as cold and empty without this person, and the singer is blinded by the lights, indicating the overwhelming feeling of love that he feels for this person.


The chorus is repetitive but powerful, emphasizing the singer's inability to function without the touch of the person he's longing for. The second verse exudes a greater sense of urgency as the singer knows that he's running out of time before he loses this person completely. He is fully aware of how much he needs this person and will do anything to keep them in his life.
