Bastille bad_news Lyrics

Bad news like a sucker punch, what do you say?

Air knocked out of my lungs, your cue to stay

When you hear something difficult don’t back away

Some people say nothing, good ones engage

Don’t turn your back on me

Don’t bury your head deep

Just cause you don’t know what to say

Don’t turn your back on me

Don’t bury your head deep

Just cause you don’t know what to say

It’s true

That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting

Bad news

Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming

Bad news like a sucker punch blew me away

People fill the streets like nothing has changed

Clock hands tick along, they don’t look the same

Planes fly overhead like any old day

Don’t turn your back on me

Don’t bury your head deep

Just cause you don’t know what to say

Don’t turn your back on me

Don’t bury your head deep

Just cause you don’t know what to say

It’s true

That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting

Bad news

Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming

Maybe I just want some words of distraction

I feel like I’m being consumed

Maybe I’m expecting the perfect reaction

To pull me back

It’s true

That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting

Bad news

Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming

It’s true

That it kicks you in the teeth when you are least expecting

Bad news

Oh it beats you black and blue before you see it coming
