Reflektor Lyrics
Jump to:
Trapped in a prism, in a prism of light
Alone in the darkness, darkness of white
We fell in love, alone on a stage
In the reflective age

Entre la nuit, la nuit et l'aurore
Entre le royaume, des vivants et des morts
If this is heaven
I don't know what it's for
If I can't find you there
I don't care

I thought I found a way to enter
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
I thought I found the connector
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

Now, the signals we send, are deflected again
We're still connected, but are we even friends?
We fell in love when I was nineteen
And now we're staring at a screen

[in French*]
Entre la nuit, la nuit et l'aurore
Entre les voyants, les vivants et les morts
If this is heaven
I need something more
Just a place to be alone
Because you're my home

I thought I found a way to enter
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
I thought I found the connector
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

It's just a reflection of a reflection
Of a reflection of a reflection
Will I see you on the other side?
We all got things to hide
It's just a reflection of a reflection
Of a reflection of a reflection
Will I see you on the other side?
We all got things to hide

All right, let's go back
Our song escapes on little silver discs
Our love is plastic, we'll break it to bits
I want to break free, but will they break me?
Down, down, down
Don't mess around

I thought I found a way to enter
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
I thought I found the connector
It's just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

Thought you were praying to the resurrector
Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
Thought you were praying to the resurrector
Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)
Thought you were praying to the resurrector
Turns out it was just a Reflektor (It's just a Reflektor)

It's a Reflektor
It's just a Reflektor
Just a Reflektor
Will I see you on the other side?
It's just a Reflektor
Will I see you on the other side?
We all got things to hide
It's just a Reflektor
Will I see you on the other side?
(*translates to:
"Between the night, night and dawn. Between the kingdom of the living and the dead.")

Reflektor Info:

• The song features backing vocals by David Bowie. Richard Reed Parry told NME how Bowie ended up on the track: "It was just after The Next Day had come out. He basically just came by the studio in New York while we were mixing, just to have a listen to the stuff we were doing. He offered to lend us his services because he really liked the song.

In fact, he basically threatened us - he was like, 'If you don't hurry up and mix this song, I might just steal it from you!' So we thought, well why don't we go one better, why don't you sing on our version? Thankfully he obliged, and we were really happy about that."

• Though David Bowie doesn't appear in the video, his likeness does. Will Butler explained: "There is a David Bowie mask, in the very last second of the film, of the video. That creepy mask that Win is wearing is in fact a David Bowie mask."

• The video won was directed by Anton Corbijn who has famously shot visuals and photos for U2, The Killers and Depeche Mode.

• The video won for "Best Art Direction" at the 2014 MTV VMAs
