Disclosure - Caracal Album Lyrics



Disclosure - Caracal Lyrics






Nocturnal

Street lights, turn on one by one
My hope is, descending like the sun
Try to tell myself there's freedom in the loneliness (Oh baby)
Always restless, story of my life
Disconnected, body clock's not right
Try to tell myself that I'mma get some sleep tonight

Found myself where I started, this isn't where I want to be
The time that I find hardest, always comes eventually

My shadow doesn't show in the dark
The night time is inclined to my heart
The emptiness I felt from the start
Will follow me 'till I fall apart

Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal

My demons are blocking out the light
And my mind is about to lose the fight
Why can't I find peace, when a caracal could sleep tonight? (Yeah)
Your absence isn't something that I choose (choose, choose choose)
The truth is you were never mine to lose (lose, lose, lose)
Said that I feel lifeless, tryna get away from you (Oh baby, oh)

Found myself where I started, this isn't where I want to be
The time that I find hardest, always comes eventually

My shadow doesn't show in the dark
The night time is inclined to my heart
The emptiness I felt from the start
Will follow me 'till I fall apart

Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal
Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal
Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal
Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal (Oh yeah)

My shadow doesn't show in the dark
The night time is inclined to my heart
The emptiness I felt from the start
Will follow me 'till I fall apart

Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal
Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal
Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal
Nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal, nocturnal

Omen

(ft. Sam Smith)

I'm feeling something, something different
When you left, my picture changed
I was blinded, I'd not envisioned
The same face in a different frame

It's an omen, caught my baby crying
Saw the silver lining
It must be an omen
Needed you to show me, without you I am lonely

My mind would rule my heart
I didn't pay attention to the light in the dark
It left me torn apart
But now I see your tears are an omen

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh-Oh-Oh
Omen

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh-Oh-Oh
Omen

You were waiting, I was vacant
You left before my eyes, then it hit me
You're relocating and I need you by my side

It's an omen, caught my baby crying
Saw the silver lining
It must be an omen
Needed you to show me, without you I am lonely

My mind would rule my heart,
I didn't pay attention to the light in the dark
It left me torn apart,
But now I see your tears are an omen

My mind would rule my heart,
I didn't pay attention to the light in the dark
It left me torn apart,
But now I see your tears are an omen

Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh-Oh-Oh
Omen
(Woah, now love)
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh-Oh-Oh
Omen
(I didn't pay attention to the light in the dark)
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh-Oh-Oh
Omen
(But now I see your tears are an omen)
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh-Oh-Oh
Omen
(Now I see your tears are an omen)
Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh
Oh-Oh-Oh
Omen

Holding On

Weight of love on my shoulders
I thought that it would be easier than this
I found my heart had grown colder
But the warmth of your kiss, I can't dismiss

Though my past has left me bruised
I ain't hiding from the truth
When the truth won't let me lie right next to you

[Chorus:]
But it's holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can't fake it
It keeps holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can't shake it
But it's holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can't fake it
It keeps holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can't shake it

Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
It keeps holding on and on
It keeps holding on and on
It keeps holding on and on
It keeps holding on and on

I've seen times that were harder
I remember the taste of bitterness
Won't you help me, my father?
Help me fall in the love that I have missed

Though my past has left me bruised
I ain't hiding from the truth
When the truth won't let me lie right next to you

[Chorus:]
But it's holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can't fake it
It keeps holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can't shake it
But it's holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to make it
Played the part, but I can't fake it
It keeps holding on
And it's holding strong
Even though I tried to break it
Heaven knows that I can't shake it

Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
It keeps holding on and on
It keeps holding on and on
It keeps holding on and on
It keeps holding on and on
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it
Shake it, sh-shake it

Hourglass

There's someone out there waiting for me
High, mini, fat, skinny, just wait and see
Don't call me lonely if you are too
In a big city, take pity, won't make the news
I'm advancing, nothing to lose
Go-getter, do better, the right attitude
Do as I say, not as I do
Got no money, nobody, to tell you the truth

When I wake up in the morning
I don't really want too much
See this song but as a warning
Cause you're too far away to touch

Eyes on the hourglass
As we sink into the sand
Time's up, there's nothing we can do about it
It's fine, love, cause I know I'mma live without it
Eyes on the hourglass
As we sink into the sand
Time's up, there's nothing we can do about it
It's fine, love, cause I know I'mma live without it

So come on, surprise me, I don't care who
Your step missing, time's ticking, ain't got a clue
Something I said, the way that I move
Strong passion, hot passion, too much for you
Don't complicate this, simple to me
I've got it, you want it, but it might not come free
The sun falls slowly, shadows of love
Get together, now or never, can't wait till dawn

When I wake up in the morning
I don't really want too much
See this song but as a warning
Cause you're too far away to touch

Eyes on the hourglass
As we sink into the sand
Time's up, there's nothing we can do about it
It's fine, love, cause I know I'mma live without it
Eyes on the hourglass
As we sink into the sand
Time's up, there's nothing we can do about it
It's fine, love, cause I know I'mma live without it

Willing & Able

Don't say you want me, don't say you need me
If you ain't ready, turn around
Willing and able, cards on the table
And I believe in what we've found

If we can't trust the love in us
There'll be no looking back, no looking back, no
If there's enough, in stuff we touch
There'll be no looking back, no looking back, no

If we're falling in love, we're falling in love
There'll be nothing above
And I won't give you up, no I won't give you up
If we're falling in love
If we're falling in love, we're falling in love
There'll be nothing above
And I won't give you up, no I won't give you up
If we're falling in love

If you don't feel it, the same as me
Speak now or hold your peace
If you don't see it, the way I see
Then it was never meant to be

If we can't trust the love in us
There'll be no looking back, no looking back, no
If there's enough, in stuff we touch
There'll be no looking back, no looking back, no

If we're falling in love, we're falling in love
There'll be nothing above
And I won't give you up, no I won't give you up
If we're falling in love
If we're falling in love, we're falling in love
There'll be nothing above
And I won't give you up, no I won't give you up
If we're falling in love
If we're falling in love

If I'm gonna fall in, I'm gonna fall my all in
If I'm gonna fall in, I'm gonna fall my all in
If I'm gonna fall in, I'm gonna fall my all in
If I'm gonna fall in, I'm gonna fall my all in
If I'm gonna fall in, I'm gonna fall my all in
If I'm gonna fall in, I'm gonna fall my all in
If I'm gonna fall in, I'm gonna fall my all in

Magnets

Never really felt bad about it
As we drank deep from a lie
'Cause I felt melting magnets, babe
The second I saw you through half-shut eyes

Smoke and sunset, off Mulholland
He was talking, I was wondering 'bout
You and that girl, she your girlfriend?
Face from heaven, bet the world she don't know

Pretty girls don't know the things that I know
Walk my way, I'll share the things that she won't

Uh-oh, dancin' past the point of no return
Let go, we can free ourselves of all we've learned
I love this secret language that we're speaking
Say it to me, let's embrace the point of no return
Let's embrace the point of no return
Let's embrace the point of no return

Never really thought we would make it
We be thinking about what could have been
But we've had a record summer, can't turn it down, oh
Now I don't wanna see the envy again

Smoke and sunset, off Mulholland
He was talking, I was wondering 'bout
You and that girl, she your girlfriend?
Face from heaven, bet the world she don't know

Pretty girls don't know the things that I know
Walk my way, I'll share the things that she won't

Uh-oh, dancin' past the point of no return
Let go, we can free ourselves of all we've learned
I love this secret language that we're speaking
Say it to me, let's embrace the point of no return
Let's embrace the point of no return
Let's embrace the point of no return
Let's embrace the point of no return
Let's embrace the point of no return

(Let's embarce the point of no return)
(Let's embrace the point of no return)

Jaded

Your words give you away
Be careful how you say my name
Step back, refrain
Be honest and you'll save some face
Cause you're fading
Don't mistake me for a fool
The game you play has changed

Take a look at yourself and the stories you tell
Does the truth weigh on your mind?
Tell me what did it cost when the moment was lost
Is this how you survive?

Why, oh why do you have to lie?
What are you afraid of?
We know what you're made of
Now your time has passed you by
You've already made it
There's no need to chase it
Soak it up, soak it up and save it
Cause enough is enough, you're jaded
Golden years left you behind
You cannot replace them
Face it or you'll waste them
You cannot replace them
Face it or you'll waste them
You cannot replace them
Face it or you'll waste them
You cannot replace them

The gospel that you preach
It's poisonous beyond belief
But still, you'll reach
Be careful or the truth might speak
It's amazing when it's there in black and white for all to see
We sow and you reap

Take a look at yourself and the stories you tell
Does the truth weigh on your mind?
Tell me what did it cost when the moment was lost
Is this how you survive?

Why, oh why do you have to lie?
What are you afraid of?
We know what you're made of
Now your time has passed you by
You've already made it
There's no need to chase it
Soak it up, soak it up and save it
Cause enough is enough, you're jaded
Golden years left you behind
You cannot replace them
Face it or you'll waste them
You cannot replace them
Face it or you'll waste them

Soak it up, soak it up and save it
Cause enough is enough, you're jaded
Golden years left you behind
You cannot replace them
Face it or you'll raise them
You cannot replace them

Good Intentions

Baby, you can believe me when I say I tried my best
But there's no other way
You deserve the world, I couldn't give you less

But I'm not perfect the way you're perfect
And though it hurts, yeah, it hurts to say goodbye

I know I let you down
It wasn't that your love wasn't good enough
Couldn't stick around
It's only in myself that I didn't trust
I had good intentions
I had good intentions

And it's a shame
Oh, ironic that I went and put you through
I take the blame
Cause the truth, there's really nothing you could do

But I'm not perfect the way you're perfect
And though it hurts, yeah, it hurts to say goodbye

I know I let you down
It wasn't that your love wasn't good enough
Couldn't stick around
It's only in myself that I didn't trust
I had good intentions
I had good intentions
I had good intentions
I...

But I'm not perfect the way you're perfect
And though it hurts, yeah, it hurts to say goodbye
But I'm not perfect the way you're perfect
And though it hurts, yeah, it hurts to say goodbye

Echoes

You made a promise I won't forget
You were dishonest ever since we met
If I could count the times you told me with love in your voice
That you'd make an honest choice
You'd make an honest choice

Don't you remember anything that you said?
Forgot the memories that fell through the net
You go on and on
I can sing along cause you're the echo that's in my head
Don't you remember anything that you said?
Forgot the memories that fell through the net
You go on and on
I can sing along cause you're the echo that's in my head

Such repetition, cause for concern
I shouldn't listen, but I never learn
If I could count the times you told me with love in your voice
That you'd make an honest choice
That you'd make an honest choice

Don't you remember anything that you said?
Forgot the memories that fell through the net
You go on and on
I can sing along cause you're the echo that's in my head
Don't you remember anything that you said?
Forgot the memories that fell through the net
You go on and on
I can sing along cause you're the echo that's in my head
Cause you're the echo that's in my head
Cause you're the echo that's in my head

I've had, I've had enough
Tryna find the space to interrupt
I've had, I've had enough
All the different ways you hold me up
I've had, I've had enough
Tryna find the space to interrupt
I've had, I've had enough
All the different ways you hold me up
Me up, me up, me up, me up
Me up, me up, me up, me up

Don't you remember anything that you said?
Forgot the memories that fell through the net
You go on and on
I can sing along cause you're the echo that's in my head
Don't you remember anything that you said?
Forgot the memories that fell through the net
You go on and on

Masterpiece

Lately, you hold your tongue and don't make a scene
But I see through the façade
See the queen behind the guard
Gently, you mask the fact that you disagree
Dealt a hand without your card
Had the joker from the start

You're yearning, where it [?]
Searching for something

I know what you're hiding but they can't see what you've got
What you've got, baby, what you've got, baby
Quit crying and stop trying to be someone you're not
What you're not baby, what you're not baby
Maybe you can't see
Oh, you're the masterpiece

In time, you'll see the colours through your own eyes
You could take the perfect shot
Show the people what you've got
A far cry from insecurity and demise
When your tears come to a stop
You can look down from the top

You're yearning, where it [?]
Searching for something

I know what you're hiding but they can't see what you've got
What you've got, baby, what you've got, baby
Quit crying and stop trying to be someone you're not
What you're not baby, what you're not baby
Maybe you can't see
Oh you're the masterpiece

What you got, baby
What you got, baby
What you got, baby
What you got, baby
What you got, baby
What you got, baby
What you got, baby
What you got, baby

Molecules

The lights are too bright
Let's turn them down and get to work
You're in the limelight
But I'll flip the switch if you prefer

You keep acting like you didn't see me
It's alright, I'll sit tight
Interconnected, so don't hide the feeling
I won't fight, it's not right

You keep acting like you didn't see me
It's alright, I'll sit tight
Interconnected, so don't hide the feeling
I won't fight, it's not right

I'm attracted by the way you move
And now you got me drowning by the things you knew
And nothing can stop me
I'm disregarding the rules
It goes down to molecules
I'm not looking for the words to say
What you've already heard a hundred times
Too late, I know that you got me
I'm disregarding the rules
It goes down to molecules

I know you want me
But I can act like I don't know
It's nearly morning
So grab your coat, it's time to go

You keep acting like you didn't see me
It's alright, I'll sit tight
Interconnected, so don't hide the feeling
I won't fight, it's not right

You keep acting like you didn't see me
It's alright, I'll sit tight

Afterthought

Anytime I'm alone, I'm reliving the moment
Does it enter your mind?
Have I already blown it?

Somehow in my head, it's overgrown
It's made me question everything I know
Did what you say contain an undertone?
It goes on and on and on

It keeps turning up, it won't leave me
Did I say enough? Speak freely
Did my words destroy?
Or was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Oh, was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?

When you're so hard to read
I wonder what you're hiding
Lying under the leaves
I'm not someone you confide in

Somehow in my head, it's overgrown
It's made me question everything I know
Did what you say contain an undertone?
It goes on and on and on

It keeps turning up, it won't leave me
Did I say enough? Speak freely
Did my words destroy?
Or was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Oh, was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Was it just an afterthought?
Afterthought, afterthought

Get this, get this sound
Set this, set this down
