Nightcall
Kavinsky Lyrics


I'm giving you a night call to tell you how I feel
I want to drive you through the night, down the hills
I'm gonna tell you something you don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dark, but have no fear

There something inside you
It's hard to explain
They're talking about you boy
But you're still the same
There something inside you
It's hard to explain
They're talking about you boy
But you're still the same

I'm giving you a night call to tell you how I feel
I want to drive you through the night, down the hills
I'm gonna tell you something you don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dark, but have no fear

There something inside you
It's hard to explain
They're talking about you boy
But you're still the same

There something inside you
It's hard to explain
They're talking about you boy
But you're still the same

There something inside you (there's something inside you)
It's hard to explain (it's hard to explain )
They're talking about you boy (they're talking about you boy)
But you're still the same

In case anyone was wondering about the meaning behind the lyrics, here's a great one that I found on SongMeanings. If you listen to all the previous EPs by Kavinsky, and observe the recurring themes, you'll see that they all tell a story, with each EP representing a different chapter in the story:

In "Teddy Boy", the main character (the guy on the album cover art) has a car crash and dies in the hospital but comes back as a ghostly phantom driver.
In "1986", he is haunting the highways and reminiscing on what happened to him in the moments leading up to and immediately after the crash
In "Nightcall" it seems as though he's trying to get in touch with someone in his former life, whom he loved, but never had the courage to tell her. He wants her to ride with him so she can experience all the things he's experienced since he died. And he's telling her not to be afraid.


"I'm giving you a night call to tell you how I feel
I want to drive you through the night, down the hills
I'm gonna tell you something you don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dark, but have no fear"


This girl can tell something strange is happening because of the way he sounds, the news reports covering the crash and the sightings of the mysterious "ghost car". Hence the lyrics:


"There's something inside you
It's hard to explain
They're talking about you boy
But you're still the same"


She's seen the news coverage of the crash and the police footage of the "ghost car" that is haunting the highways. 
She knows he's supposed to be dead but here he is on the phone with her. She can tell he's changed by the way he's talking. He sounds ghostly, depressed, electrified even. But despite how inhuman he sounds she can't help but feel like he's still the same person he was before he died. So she just might ride with him.



Given the dark/sombre and haunting sound of the song, you can also interpret this song being about depression, how it slowly reduces us to a shell of our former selfs; a phantom driving aimlessly on a highway to their personal hell, struggling to open up to those we love.

If you hear this playing in someone's car, you know they have something inside them that is hard to explain.
