XO Lyrics
Jump to:
[Music video introduction (pilot):]
Flight controller here is looking very carefully at the situation
Obviously a major malfunction

[Verse 1:]
Your love is bright as ever (ever, ever, ever)
Even in the shadows (shadows, shadows, shadows)
Baby kiss me (kiss me, kiss me, kiss me)
Before they turn the lights out (lights out, lights out, lights out)
Your heart is glowing (glowing, glowing, glowing)
And I'm crashing into you (into you, into you, into you)
Baby kiss me (kiss me, kiss me, kiss me)
Before they turn the lights out (the lights out)
Before they turn the lights out (the lights out)
Baby love me lights out

[Pre-Hook:]
In the darkest night hour (In the darkest night hour)
I'll search through the crowd (I'll search through the crowd)
Your face is all that I see
I'll give you everything
Baby love me lights out
Baby love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

[Verse 2:]
We don't have forever
Ooh, baby daylight's wasting (wasting, wasting, wasting)
You better kiss me (kiss me)
Before our time has run out
Mmmhh yeah...
Nobody sees what we see
They're just hopelessly gazing, oh
Oh, baby take me, me
Before they turn the lights out
Before our time has run out
Baby love me lights out

[Pre-Hook:]
In the darkest night hour (In the darkest night hour)
I'll search through the crowd (I'll search through the crowd)
Your face is all that I see
I'll give you everything
Baby love me lights out
Baby love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

[Hook:]
I love you like XO
You love me like XO
You kill me boy XO
You love me like XO
All that I see
Give me everything
Baby love me lights out
Baby love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

[Pre-Hook]
In the darkest night hour (In the darkest night hour)
I'll search through the crowd (I'll search through the crowd)
Your face is all that I see
I'll give you everything
Baby love me lights out
Baby love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

XO Info:

XO is from Beyoncé Knowles' fifth studio album, Beyoncé (2013). The song was released worldwide on December 16, 2013 as the lead contemporary hit radio single from the album. The American songwriter Terius "The-Dream" Nash wrote the song in collaboration with Ryan Tedder and Knowles,.

The song starts off with a six-second audio clip of former NASA public affairs officer Steve Nesbitt recorded moments after the space shuttle Challenger exploded in 1986. Former NASA astronauts and families labeled Beyoncé's choice of sample as "insensitive."

Beyoncé responded to the outcry over the audio by expressing her sympathies for the families of those who died in the Challenger disaster and indicating no offense was intended. "My heart goes out to the families of those lost in the Challenger disaster,"

"The song 'XO' was recorded with the sincerest intention to help heal those who have lost loved ones and to remind us that unexpected things happen, so love and appreciate every minute that you have with those who mean the most to you. The songwriters included the audio in tribute to the unselfish work of the Challenger crew with hope that they will never be forgotten."
