Oblivion
Bastille Lyrics


When you fall asleep
With your head
Upon my shoulder
When you're in my arms
But you've gone somewhere deeper

Are you going to age with grace?
Are you going to age without mistakes
Are you going to age with grace?
Or only to wake and hide your face

When oblivion
Is calling out your name
You always take it further
Than I ever can

When you play it hard
And I try to follow you there
It's not about control
But I turn back when I see where you go

Are you going to age with grace?
Are you going to leave a path to trace?

But, oblivion
Is calling out your name
You always take it further
Than I ever can

When oblivion
Is calling out your name
You always take it further
Than I ever can

Lyrics :

When you fall asleep with your head upon my shoulder.
When you're in my arms but you've gone somewhere deeper.

Are you going to age with grace?
Are you going to age without mistakes?
Are you going to age with grace,
Or only to wake and hide your face?

When oblivion is calling out your name,
You always take it further than I ever can.

When you play it hard, and I try to follow you there.
It's not about control but I turn back when I see where you go.

Are you going to age with grace?
Are you going to leave a path to trace?

But oblivion is calling out your name,
You always take it further than I ever can.

When oh oblivion is calling out your name,
You always take it further than I ever can.

This is about an addictive lifestyle. Dan is looking at/holding a friend or lover who has taken themselves to another place through drink/drugs. He is saying he can't follow them there - they go further, to an extreme which he cannot bring himself to go to. He doesn't want to control them but has to turn back when he sees where it leads them. "Are you going to age with grace, are you going to age without mistakes...?" - I think the answer to this is, sadly, no. This gives the song its poignancy. Like many gifted artists, he is taking a potentially frightening or upsetting experience and turning it into a beautiful song. There is no judgement of the other person here - just concern for their them, for the shame they feel when they come round ("only to wake and hide your face" and for their future. The whole song is filled with a sense of wonder.
