Bastille Forever Ever Lyrics

I don’t wanna talk about it [8x]

I see ahead of me a light that takes my breath

If we’re only ever looking back, then how can we expect

To see each other as we are, for all that we’ve become

Would be friends at all if we weren’t friends when we was young?

And I want to feel close to you for more than just a sake,

Of the place that we grew up in and all them times that we got baked in the park

Look, if you take me apart, you’ll find half of me is you but half of me is asking me to start anew

You look the same but I don’t recognize you,

I’m looking you dead in the face and I can’t find you

Don’t like the way we always talk in the past tense,

Can’t explain the present ’til you work out what the past meant

These are the days that bind us together, forever

And these little things define us, forever, forever

All this bad blood here, won’t you let it dry?

It’s been cold for years, won’t you let it lie?

There’s a man I’ve known for years, and still to this day do I know him

I love him very much, it’s very hard for me to show him

Back then and even now I feel there’s something that I owe him

And that feeling should be going over time but no it’s growing

We was kid mates, making mistakes, playing give take

Big hearts battling them big snakes, rattling their tails

He was like the wind in my sails, I was like the water for his keel, it was real

It use to hurt my flesh that his worn scars were heated still

He use to hurt his flesh just to see if he could feel

He took out a long straw, he was never really the strong sort

Got into the wrong sport, big swigs, long snorts

Caught in that spiral, saw attempts to help him sparkle

But soon he got so down that he got on the brown, word got around

People did not like the sound, they told me to stop popping round to see him

I kept disagreeing, soon he was a different being

He got into stealing, robbing, I still see him frequent afterwards you’d think would open eyes were throbbing

You could stop him freaking out, but to speak about the things that made him weak, his doubt

And to stop his rolling sentence, faced with paper pen to write his actions spoke dependence

Friendship became difficult to say the least, he played the beast so well

I wondered how I would ever make our peace

That’s when we drifted, never argued, it just became clear

The parts of him I loved so well would slowly disappear

Those are the days that bind us together, forever

These little things define us, forever, forever

All this bad blood here, won’t you let it dry?

It’s been cold for years, won’t you let it lie?

Ready or not, here I come, you can’t hide

I’m going to find you and take it slowly

Ready or not, here I come, you can’t hide

I’m going to find you and make you want me
