The xx - I See You Lyrics






Dangerous

They say we're in danger
But I disagree
If proven wrong, shame on me
But you've had faith in me
So I won't shy away
Should it all fall down
You'll have been my favorite mistake

They say
You are dangerous, but I don't care
I'm gon' to pretend that I'm not scared
If this only ends in tears
Then I won't say goodbye
'Cause I couldn't care less
If they call us reckless
Until they are breathless
They must be blind

There are voices ringing over
They keep saying, "Danger, danger"
I can't make them take you under
Makes no difference
No one can take this away
Should it all fall down, I'll treasure each day

They say
You are dangerous, but I don't care
I'm gon' to pretend that I'm not scared
If this only ends in tears
Then I won't say goodbye
'Cause I couldn't...
'Cause I couldn't care less
If they call us reckless
Until they are breathless
They must be blind

Let them say there are warning signs
They must be blind
They must be blind
They say

If this only ends in tears
Then I won't say goodbye

Say Something Loving

Before it slips away

Say something loving
I just don't remember the thrill of affection
I just don't remember
Say something loving
I need a reminder, the feeling's escaped me

I went looking for it
Could have been anyone's kiss
Throwing my arms at no one
When I gave up, I found love

The thought flows through my mind
And it's growing all the time
I do myself a disservice
To feel this weak, to be this nervous

You say something loving
It's so overwhelming, the thrill of affection
Feels so unfamiliar
You say something loving
Without hesitation it hits me, hits me
It feels so unfamiliar

Before it slips away

Your touch stays on my skin
I feel it start sinking in
Here come my insecurities
I almost expect you to leave

Were you really looking for me?
Try your best to reassure me
I wasn't patient to meet you
Am I too needy, am I too eager?

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong
I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
I don't know what this is, but it doesn't feel wrong

Did you hear me say it?
Say it
Did you hear me say?

I say something loving
I can't hold it inside, the thrill of affection
Is only getting stronger
I say something loving
All my hesitations are fading, fading
I feel it taking over

Before it slips away
Don't let it slip away
Before it slips away
Don't let it slip away

Lips

Just your love
Just your shadow
Just your voice
And my soul
Just your love
Just your shadow
Just your voice
And my soul
Just your lips

My name on your lips
You're wearing my lungs
Drowned in oxygen
Now you've set the scene
High on intimacy
Drawing me a bath

I don't wanna know the way down
I don't wanna know the way down

Just your love
I just want it all
Just your shadow
Just your voice
I just want it all
And my soul
In my head, in my veins
In the way you give and take
In the way that you weigh
On my body, on my brain

Chemistry is wrecking a two, three time affair
There's no guarantees
Working through the seasons, pressed up against the ceiling
Pushing down on me

I don't wanna know the way down
I don't wanna know the way down

Just your love
I just want it all
Just your shadow
Just your voice
I just want it all
And my soul
In my head, in my veins
In the way you give and take
In the way that you weigh
On my body, on my brain

Just your neck
Just your eyes
Just your desire
Just your love and my soul
Just your love
Just your shadow
Just your voice
And my soul
Just your love
Just your shadow
Just your voice
And my soul
I don't wanna know the way down

A Violent Noise

If I'm beating every hand away
No one stays
I've got so cautious
And now I trip on every move I make
Let one play
To be that careless

With every kiss from a friend
With everything I pretend not to feel
Am I too high? Am I too proud?
Is the music too loud... for me to hear?

Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise
Dries my eye
With every beat comes a violent noise
The melody sung
And I don't know the voice
Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise

You've been staying out late
Trying your best to escape
I hope you find what you're looking for
Let a moment take place
Without running away
I hope you silence the noise

How could eyes this wide
Lose sight of a world outside?
I've looked away, cowardice
With every kiss from a friend
With everything I pretend not to feel
Am I too high? Am I too proud?
Is the music too loud... for me to hear?

Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise
Dries my eye
With every beat comes a violent noise
The melody sung
And I don't know the voice
Now I go out
But every beat is a violent noise

Performance

If I scream at the top of my lungs
Will you hear what I don't say?
If I dance like I'm on a stage
Will you see I seem out of place?
If I put on a disguise
Will you think everything's alright?
If I leave before the end
Will you forget that I was there?

When you saw me leaving
Did you think I had a place to go?
Since you stopped believing
I've had to put on my own show

I'll put on a performance
I'll put on a show
It is a performance
I do it all so
You won't see my hurting
When my heart it breaks
I'll put on a performance
I'll put on a brave face

Even when I was hurting
You could always find me
Now you've stopped looking for me
But I'm still playing hide and seek
I want you to notice
But you just don't see
The show is wasted on you
So I perform for me

When you saw me leaving
Did you think I had a place to go?
Since you stopped believing
I've had to put on my own show

I'll put on a performance
I'll put on a show
It is a performance
I do it all so
You won't see my hurting
When my heart it breaks
I'll put on a performance
I'll put on a brave face

Replica

Seem right, seem wrong
Only difference is that I'm that one
Second time a wrap
Feels like this song's already been sung

Mirroring situations like you're an imitation
Do I watch and repeat?
And as if I tried to, I turned out just like you
Do we watch and repeat?

They all say I will become a replica
Your mistakes were only chemical

25 and you're just like me
Is it in my nature to be stuck on repeat?
Another encore to an aftershow
Do I chase the night or does the night chase me?

Mirroring situations like you're an imitation
Do I watch and repeat?
And as if I tried to, I turned out just like you
Do we watch and repeat?

They all say I will become a replica
Your mistakes were only chemical

Do I chase the night or does the night chase me?
Do I chase the night or does the night chase me?

They all say I will become a replica
Your mistakes were only chemical

Brave For You

In all I know
And what I've done
I take you along
Though you're not here
I can feel you there
I take you along

And when I'm scared
I imagine you're there
Telling me to be brave

So I will be brave for you
Stand on a stage for you
Do the things that I'm afraid to do
I know you want me to
I will be brave
I know you want me to

I see things change
And now watch them grow
And I know you do too
When the things don't make sense
I have courage
Because of you

And when I'm scared
I imagine you're there
Telling me to be brave

So I will be brave for you
Stand on a stage for you
Do the things that I'm afraid to do
I know you want me to
I will be brave
I will be brave
Do the things that I'm afraid to do
I know you want me to

There are things I wish I didn't know
I try my best to let them go

I Dare You

I'm in love with it
Intoxicated
I'm enraptured
From the inside I can feel that you want to
Way up high on it
Feel it suspending
I'm enamored
Way up in the sky I could see that you want to

I've been a romantic for so long
All I've ever had are love songs

Singing oh-oh-oh
Go on, I dare you
Oh-oh-oh I dare you

I got chills
Heartbreak multiplies
I'm on a different kind of high
A rush of blood is not enough
I need my feelings set on fire
Now I'm deep in it, infatuated
Strong attraction
Side by side, and I know that you want to

I've been a romantic for so long
All I've ever had are love songs

Singing oh-oh-oh
Go on, I dare you
Oh-oh-oh I dare you

I can hear it now like I heard it then
I can hear it now like I heard it then
I can hear it now like I heard it then
I can hear it now like I heard it then

Singing oh-oh-oh
Go on, I dare you
Oh-oh-oh I dare you
Oh-oh-oh
Go on, I dare you
Oh-oh-oh I dare you

Test Me

I don't know where I went wrong
Tell me, should I see someone?
Ceiling's falling down on me
You look but you never see

Just take it out on me
It's easier than saying what you mean
Test me, see if I break
Tell me this time you've changed

I'll take it out on you
It's easier than talking it through
Test me, see if I stay
How could I walk the other way?

Back to: The xx


I See You is the third studio album by English indie pop band the xx. It was released on 13 January 2017 by the Young Turks record label. It was the band's first album in more than four years, following 2012's Coexist.

The xx began recording I See You in 2014 at Marfa Recording Co. in Marfa, Texas, and were assisted by producer Rodaidh McDonald. According to the band, they had a more progressive, wide-ranging musical concept in mind, compared to their previous two albums. Jamie xx, the band's multi-instrumentalist and producer, said the album's sound and aesthetic were influenced by his 2015 club-influenced solo recording, In Colour.

I See You was released to widespread critical acclaim, with many reviewers finding its music less insular than the xx's previous recordings. It became the band's second number-one album in the United Kingdom and an international top-ten chart success. Four singles were released to promote the album, beginning with "On Hold", while the xx embarked on the European I See You Tour and subsequent concerts in the Americas.
