Bastille Sweet Pompeii Lyrics

[Erika:] “How are you?”

[Dan:] “Well, it’s been a while since anybody asked me that.”

You took my heart and you held it in your mouth

And with a word all my love came rushing out

And every whisper, it’s the worst, emptied out by a single word

There’s a hollow in me now

It isn’t easy for me to let it go

Cause I’ve swallow every single word

And every whisper, every sigh eats away this heart of mine

And there is a hollow in me now

So I put my faith in something unknown

I’m living on such sweet nothing

But I’m trying to hope with nothing to hold

I’m living on such sweet nothing

And it’s hard to learn

And it’s hard to love

If you giving me such sweet nothing

Sweet nothing, sweet nothing

You’re giving me..

But if you close your eyes,

does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?

And if you close your eyes,

does it almost feel like you’ve been here before?

How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

If you close your eyes,

does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?

“I’m great.”
