Belle and Sebastian – Reclaim The Night Lyrics

Reclaim The Night Lyrics – Belle and Sebastian

I’ve got to get you off my mind
I’ve got the world to see
I want to keep you out of sight
Don’t try to follow me

I’ve got to get you off my mind
I’ve got the world to see
Hide from the light, stay out of sight
Live parallel with me

Is it the pull of the moon, beckoning?
I faced the weather in my second skin
I floated high on the tide, the current took me
In the eye of a storm, panic shook me

I’ve got to get you off my mind
I’ve got the world to see
I was afraid, I ran away
Don’t try to follow me

The way he tells it
No, that wasn’t everything
You hear a clumsy move, I see threatening
Don’t want to see him
I don’t want to see him
Do I have to justify the way I’m feeling?

We walk the long way
Underneath a bright moon
Reclaim the night, don’t lose another
And cross the street
Hear someone close behind you
Turn day to night, stay undercover

His name’s a warning: danger, exclamation!
Reclaim the night, don’t lose another
This time the world demands an explanation
Reclaim the night, don’t lose another

Time after time, I see him in the crowd, oh
He cast a shadow, changed the weather
And he’s a footnote dropped in my biography
But I know he’s your friend, whatever

(So long, so long, so long
I reclaim the night
So long, so long, so long
I reclaim the night
So long, so long, so long
I reclaim the night
So long, so long, so long
I reclaim the night)
