These Streets – Bastille

These streets are yours, you can keep them
I don’t want them
They pull me back, and I surrender
To the memories I run from

Oh, we have paved these streets
With moments of defeat

But even if we won’t admit it to ourselves
We’ll walk upon these streets and think of little else
So I won’t show my face here anymore
I won’t show my face here anymore

These streets are yours, you can keep them
In my mind it’s like you haunt them
And passing through I think I see you
In the shapes of other women

Oh, we have stained these walls
With our mistakes and flaws

But even if we won’t admit it to ourselves
We’ll walk upon these streets and think of little else
So I won’t show my face here anymore
I won’t show my face here anymore

All that’s left behind
Is a shadow on my mind
(Oh, a shadow comes upon a wall is silhouette and nothing more but it’s all that’s left behind)
Is a shadow on my mind
All that’s left behind

But even if we won’t admit it to ourselves
We’ll walk upon these streets and think of little else
So I won’t show my face here anymore
I won’t show my face here anymore

I won’t show my face here anymore
I won’t show my face here anymore

Durban Skies – Bastille

All that I’ve got to be thankful for
All that I’ve got to be thankful for
In the heat, try to love these streets

In this town, it all went down
Our chromosomes in sepia tones
In my mind, in my mind

Where you led your lives
Before from our small island
Brought right back to these shores
To these shores, to these shores

[Chorus]
It’s alive, It’s alive
When I see it through your eyes
It’s alive, It’s alive
Now I understand your lives
When you take me there
You show me the city
I see it through your eyes
When you take me there
We drive through the city
Beneath the Durban Skies

Oh oh oh.
All that I’ve got to be thankful for

On the day you made your vows
The heaven’s opened, rain poured down
It poured down
Down, down

Grey and brown, the seventies
The suits you wore, and the ones you loved
Were so young, were so young,
God, you were so young

[Chorus:]
It’s alive, It’s alive
When I see it through your eyes
It’s alive, It’s alive
Now I understand your lives
When you take me there
You show me the city
I see it through your eyes
When you take me there
We drive through the city
Beneath the Durban Skies

Oh oh oh.
All that I’ve got to be thankful for
Oh, all that I’ve got to be thankful for
All that I’ve got to be thankful for

[Chorus]
It’s alive, It’s alive
When I see it through your eyes
It’s alive, It’s alive
Now I understand your lives
When you take me there
You show me the city
I see it through your eyes
When you take me there
We drive through the city
Beneath the Durban Skies

When you take me there, ooh
When you take me there
It’s alive, It’s alive

When you take me there
It’s alive, It’s alive

Blame – Bastille

You go sleep with the fishes
There’s no room for you here,
There’s no room for you here
Wrap your teeth around the pavement
Cause your body’s a message,
Send my regards to hell

Fall upon your knees,
Sing, “This is my body and soul here.”
Fall upon your knees,
Sing, “You’ve got the power and control.”
Don’t pin it all on me [2x]

You’ve been granted three wishes
Say goodbye to your mother, your father, your son
I can hear your pulse racing from here
Sitting next to this gun beats your heart in your mouth

Fall upon your knees,
Sing, “This is my body and soul here.”
Crawl and beg, and plead
Sing, “You’ve got the power to control.”
Don’t pin it all on me [2x]

[4x]
Blame, blame, blame
I got you, I got you

Fall upon your knees,
Sing, “This is my body and soul.”

Fall upon your knees,
Sing, “This is my body and soul here.”
This is my body, this is my soul.

Fall upon your knees,
Sing, “You’ve got the power to control.”

Don’t pin it all on me [2x]

Drop It Like It’s Royal (Mashup) – Bastille

[Verse 1]
I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address
In the torn up town, no post code envy

[Pre-Chorus]
But every song’s like gold teeth, Grey Goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
Bloodstains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room
We don’t care; we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don’t care; we aren’t caught up in your love affair

[Chorus]
And we’ll never be royals (royals)
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler), you can call me Queen Bee
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Let me live that fantasy

[Post-Chorus]
(Snooooooooooop)
Let me live this fantasy
I wanna live this fantasy
(Snooooooooooop)

[Verse 2]
Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world
Like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love
Like I’m the only one who knows your heart
Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying “Lord, I just don’t care”
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through
I got the eye of the tiger
Dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

[Chorus]
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler), you can call me Queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule
Let me live this fantasy

[Post-Chorus]
(Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh)
I wanna live this fantasy
(Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, oh oh oh)
I wanna live this fantasy

[Outro]
Let me live, let me live, let me live, let me live
I wanna live this fantasy
(Snooooooooooop)
You know, I wanna live this fantasy
