Bad Things
Milky Chance [feat. Izzy Bizu] Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Getting through to you
Is what I'm aiming for
Won't you hear me now
Like you've done before

Are we going round in circles
Are we running out of time, are we
Are we losing something precious
Are we hanging onto something special
I think so

'Cause when you're conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind

Eyes get resting my skin
Undressing my every floor
Ooh will we sink or swim
We're landed on an empty shore

Are we going round in circles
Are we running out of time, are we
Are we losing something precious
Are we hanging onto something special
I think so

'Cause when you're conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind

I don't mind wasting time
Let's stop and smell the roses
I don't mind wasting time
Let's stop and smell the roses
Ooh, how I know the odds is that high
As ever need to hang me out to dry
Ooh help me please my hands are tired
Don't have the courage just to tell you goodbye

'Cause when you're conquering my day and night
Easing, the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind (out of, out of my mind)

'Cause when you're conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind
'Cause when you're conquering my day and night
Easing the pain inside
Got me loving, all of the time
Keep the bad things out of my mind, out of my mind

I don't mind wasting time
Let's stop and smell the roses




I don't mind wasting time
Let's stop and smell the roses

Overall Meaning

The singer is open to wasting time with his lover and wants to appreciate the simpler things like stopping to smell the roses.


The chorus of the song repeats the same lines, "when you're conquering my day and night, easing the pain inside, got me loving all of the time, keep the bad things out of my mind." These lines suggest that the singer is struggling with something that he's unable to cope with alone, but his lover's presence eases it.
