Of the Night
Bastille Lyrics


I can feel your eyes in the back of my head
Burning, burning, burning
Floating through the room as the hairs on my arms are
Rising, rising, rising
I'm chemically drawn closer to you
Eyes wide, eyes wide open
Will you be my future or just an escape?
Love me, love me, love me

You'll never get to heaven on a night like this

Those nights when your friends are gone
When you're holding on for someone to leave with
Those nights when you crave someone
To be there at dawn, to wake with, 'cause aren't we all just
Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
Looking for somebody you can wake up with?
Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
We are, we are

Pulling at my t-shirt, your hands everywhere
Rising, rising, rising
As you trip and fall, dragging me up the stairs
What's your, what's your name, now?

You try to get to heaven on a night like this
But you, you never get to heaven on a night like this

Those nights when your friends are gone
When you're holding on for someone to leave with
Those nights when you crave someone
To be there at dawn, to wake with, 'cause aren't we all just
Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
Looking for somebody you can wake up with?
Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
We are, we are

The lights, the lights, the lights
They cut a path across the room
The lights, the lights, the lights
A blinding look from me to you
And I'll be your rabbit in the headlights
We'll never get to heaven
I'll be your rabbit in the headlights
We'll never get to heaven

Those nights when your friends are gone
When you're holding on for someone to leave with
Those nights when you crave someone
To be there at dawn, to wake with, 'cause aren't we all just
Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
Looking for somebody you can wake up with?
Looking for a little bit of hope these days?
We are, we are

Yeah, yeah
From my brain

Rhythm is a dancer,
It's a souls companion,
People feel it everywhere,
Lift your hands and voices,
Free your mind and join us,
You can feel it in the air,
Oh woah
It's a passion
Oh oh
You can feel it yeah
Oh oh
It's a passion,
Oh oh, oh, oh, oh,

(This is the rhythm)

You can put some joy up on my face,
Oh sunshine in an empty place,
Take me too, turn to and babe I'll make you stay,
(Oh yeah)
Oh I can ease you of your pain,
Feel you give me love again,
Round and round we go,
Each time I hear you say,

This is the rhythm of the night,

Wont you teach me how to love and learn,
There'll be nothing left for me to yearn,
Think of me and burn and let me hold your hand
Oh yeah-ah-eh,
I don't want to face the world in tears,
Please think again, I'm on my knees,
Sing that song to me, no reason to repent

This is the rhythm of the night,

Bastille took these songs, blended then, adopted them, and changed it into something haunting and magical.

Voltakackackack

If rubbish is magical then yes.

J. H.

Both originals were haunting and magical in their own time, and since then too.
This is a simple boring coverversion.

@Theo Things it's just off the M 74 from Glasgow to the north of England.

It's been 9 years and it's still my favorite song too bad it rarely airs on the radio anymore

Killa

There is a very few select who can sense and see the rythm as clear as day, even I can't completely see it but I can feel it

Sea_Kidd

This is one of my favorite music videos of all time. Short but sweet and tells a beautifully sad and eye opening story.

Jack Hakken

It seems to take a lot of inspiration from the film Hardcore from 1979 if you have a look at the trailer you will know what I mean.
