Bat For Lashes - A Wall Lyrics




From inside his mouth I licked the blood
but he is roaring and biting I wash off the mud
Because the tempest is out to wrestle the wild
stop charging my darling, come closer be quiet

Cause when you see a wall, I see a door
Set up with no map, and turn off your torch
when you see a wall, I see a door
You'll get soon, you'll be home
You'll be home

From inside his mouth I lick the scars
the woodland believes, marking a path
and if you just rest your head stop repeating the charge
You'll know that this time and turn off the locks

Cause when you see a wall, I see a door
Set up with no map, and turn off your torch [?]
when you see a wall, I see a door
You'll get soon, you'll be home
You'll be home

You'll get soon, you'll be home
You'll be home

Just sit still. Does it hurt?
does it hurt?

Just sit still. Does it hurt?
does it hurt?

Just sit still. Does it hurt?
does it hurt?

When you see a wall, I see a door
You'll get soon, you'll be home
You'll be home

You'll get soon, you'll be home
You'll be home

Bat For Lashes A Wall Comments
  1. haroin father

    when mtv wasn’t shit

  2. _ Enan •

    I still think this song was written for me.

  3. Víctor Andrés Corea

    this song reminds myself, three years ago aprox, thinking if my life would change... nothing has changed but this song is a machine time

  4. haroin father

    i get so nostalgic, i remember when i was younger and watched this in mtv

  5. LaGuerre19

    Natasha is just the best.

  6. Sebastian De La Tour

    From inside his mouth I licked the blood
    While he is roaring and biting I wash off the mud
    Cause the tempest is out to wrestle the wild
    Stop charging my darling, come closer be quiet

    Cause where you see a wall, I see a door
    Set up with no map, and turn off your torch
    Where you see a wall, I see a door
    You'll get through, you'll be home
    You'll be home

    From inside his mouth I lick the scars
    The woodland believes, marking a path
    And if you just rest your head stop repeating the charge
    You'll know that this time I’ll turn all the locks

    Cause where you see a wall, I see a door
    Set up with no map, and turn off your torch
    Cause where you see a wall, I see a door
    You'll get through, you'll be home
    You'll be home

    Just sit still. Does it hurt?
    Does it hurt?

    Just sit still. Does it hurt?
    Does it hurt?

    Just sit still. Does it hurt?
    Does it hurt?

    Just sit still. Does it hurt?
    Does it hurt?

  7. Neil

    This version is better than the album version imo

    charlie z

    way better indeed! on the album I hardly noticed the track and here (and with the vid) it absolutely picked my interest.

  8. Sasha Dean

    God I miss drugs sometimes

  9. ted martin

    This was one of many "the end of the world" parties at the time. I honestly thought this would be my last music video I'd ever watch lol

  16. Claudius1509

    Essa música é foda! Saudade do meu primo que me apresentou ela enquanto varávamos uma noitada de boa música ...

  23. E.L Healing

    The West 2020

  24. Maddie

    It sounds like Phil Colins transformed into an edgy woman and created this

  25. Val Vitton

    Harry <3

  27. STARISE SUN

    I love Bat For Lashes but this video was shit

    Adam Z

    your life is shit.

    Venomlily16

    zoe stary I understand where you're coming from . It's kind of hard to decipher . Either he was having a really bad drug trip and she was part of his high/addiction, or the noodle in my head just turned to popcorn ! Still I love this video BECAUSE it makes no sense which makes me give up on finding a meaning and just enjoy his trip !

    Venomlily16

    Adam F. And I suppose YOURS is roses ? Stop putting her down for being MORE honest than most !

    tanner1ie

    You missed the word "The" there :) ....

  28. Jake Ryan

    actually pretty fuckin good

  29. Manilva Garrido

    Harry F***ing Treadaway omg

  30. iRider

    It sucks we can't get this version on the album or even a single. I would pay anything for it. :(

    Xoachel

    +iRider79 http://www.youtube-mp3.org/ just right click and get the url link and there you go~

    Stefan Curran

    you should be able to. it's on spotify at least - try 'A Wall (Alt Mix)'

  31. Hanna Rids

    this music video reminds me of the relationship between zoe(taissa farmiga) and kyle(evan peters) in american horror story: coven.


    this song is amazing furthermore <3

  32. Starry&Bohemian

    A canadian young lady in the urban jungle... I mean miss Grimes should take some humble lessons from here and there  Oh yeah

  33. Carmilla Mendez

    Side note, but I kinda want the fuzzy suit Harry is wearing.

  34. Luna Montgomery

    Harry <3

  35. Aaron Fancey

    So many Kate Bush vibes. Love.

    _ Enan •

    Aaron Fancey I totally agree with you. Kate is my idol and I truly love Bat For Lashes so this resembles is everything!

  36. keruis

    Just one simple question - Why do you have to do songs anout me?

  37. Diego Lopez


    I love it 😍😍

  38. followtheleader karlmarx

    NO NO NO i love so much ''trophy''et and i listen on youtube is pop song without interest...wtf fuck miss. are you sure to be the same personn sing ''trophy''??

    Ina Evans

    if you think this is 'pop' you must not turn your fm radio tuner on much....

  39. eddws

    BEST OF 2013, #1 BEST SONG, #1 BEST VIDEO & #1 BEST ALBUM 'THE HAUNTED MAN' !!!

  40. Ambriel Weirdling

    Ms. Natasha Khan <3

  41. orfeocookie

    Sigh. I love the song, like I love the whole album, but I don't understand why quality artists decide to remix songs when they become singles. Is it just to get people to buy the song again? To me, a single is supposed to be a calling card for an album. This version of the song isn't ON the album, and it doesn't strike me as an improvement.

  42. Stephen Jeter

    Wow! I never gave this song a chance and would always skip over it. BIGGEST mistake I have ever made.

    Kyle Beyler

    Stephen Jeter Probably because the version on the album is a longer and different edit! I think this one is by far superior. Such a fun one to revisit.

    Angelo Lima

    Maybe your soul wasn't ready for it at that time.

    charlie z

    absolutely same here - this is really a way better version than on the album.

  43. Vladimir Ovidio

    #love  This song.... <3

  44. AnnaLisa Marie

    I love Harry Treadaway! He's a brilliant actor.. and he's handsome. And.. I think that I love this song. ;) #treadawaytwins #newfoundfavoritesong <3

  45. BRTD 2005

    Why this suddenly sounds like "Love and the anger"??)
    But that's not a bad thing of course)

  46. Trumpy Cat

    "And inside his mouth, I lick the blood..." "Into a brave new world, you're only one second away" "Take my hand and we'll outrun time!" Such lush lyrics.

    Christopher Daniel

    You'll grt through you'll be home!

    Jonathan O'Neill

    Puff Puff Pass she is a fantastic lyricist, isn’t she? Love her!

  47. Kayla Anderson

    Bat for Lashes reminds me of Jim Henson movies mixed with Donnie Darko lol

  48. Flebix Orkan

    my favorite song of bat for lashes

  49. Jameson Holbrook

    seriously my favorite song by them

    eric dorin

    Jameson Holbrook she’s a solo artist (aka Natasha Khan) ✌🏻

  50. luis guillermo

    The haunted man , the besttt!!!

  51. ProtossEvo

    Bat For Lashes is simply awesome. Enough said.

  52. Ed Gamer

    the lyrics is like she is saving him

  53. teamEP789

    what a perfect nose on that woman.

  54. IB5Media

    So Pearl sings this song......

  55. adamneilcallaby

    In my mind, the song is about 'a wall' between partners or friends. They're both two people who are similar and love each other. Then, one of them changes (Nat takes her hair off) and the other freaks out. (Dude dances alone and with someone else) Then the first friends helps the other change too (taking gloves off) and they have fun again. But by the end, she's in the car but clinging onto him. (She is holding herself back from going forward.) He hasn't changed enough. (Out of the entire suit)

    The West 2020

    so it's about growing up / of age, ............deeeep

  56. SynthMonsterrr

    Very nice atmosphere, both visually and sonically. And oh gosh, that actor is so handsome!

  57. LS7

    She is amazing live! I am going to be seeing her in September. She's opening for Depeche Mode's tour.

  58. Gavin

    I'm so late to the game. Wish I had known about her music before. I could have had a chance to see her on tour too :( but at least I have all three albums, so I'm content with that. This album though is amazing! Best buy I've made in ages :D

  59. munchie944

    what talent....

  60. Stefan O

    Gosh, she is amazing!

  61. Ricardo Rivera Vasallo

    love this

  62. garchomp1728

    Love this

  63. lumbeiro

    It's Laura's birthday

  64. theBadArts

    Most underrated album of 2012.

  65. Timothy Adachi

    John, I saw her at the Fonda in Hollywood last Tuesday. She freakin killed it!!!

  66. J Wagner

    where? i saw her too at for the first time coachella.

  67. Timothy Adachi

    Just saw her concert last night with no idea who bat for lashes were. Freaking awesome performance and amazing singer!!!Instant fan!!!

  68. Skinny Project

    this version is different to the album version.... but still nice! even more catchy!

  69. Skinny Project

    feb, march, april.... every day!!!!!

  70. MartyvH

    Fantastic theory. This is exactly the kind of story thread and mythology that I know Natasha built up on the Two Suns album. It's all through Two Suns. It's what good fiction authors do. The songs are like pieces of a puzzle. I'm discovering the greatness of Bat For Lashes all the time.

  71. Robert Mcafee

    April 2013, still album of the year.. fighting with the new Bowie album,

  72. tokyolove9

    just
    754,596 views???!!!

  73. MartyvH

    A Scuffle

  74. MrPoserGalore

    she's amazing so as the album!

  75. Nicholas Gilroy

    I noticed that too, I think I like this version better though

  76. ceyhun çarpar

    dude... music is eternal. that is a wrong approach to music. shame on you.

  77. MartyvH

    I've just found out (by buying the album) that the album has a different version to this! This version is definitely more commercial-sounding. I'm not sure which I like better. This version does have a more pronounced melody. Hmmm

  78. ER ZEIK

    2012 was too many years ago!!!

  79. la warrio

    he is the actor of movie hideaways, is handsome *0*

  80. skinnypuppy75

    Was he wearing a Mugatu outfit? tomwhahappen.files.wordpress.c*m/2012/03/mugato.jpg

  81. Rmadrid10housemusic

    @Deva7 I just hate seeing her like that :'(

  82. Deva7

    Since this is Laura's party, where is she? She was awesome in the first video... oh well, she probably got laid this time.

  83. Deva7

    I guess girls like men like that so they can write poems and songs about their pain and heartbreaks ;) Oh and he's kind of hot so... go figure :)

  84. NinotchkaAndMe

    Powerful voice with a perfect video !

  85. Rmadrid10housemusic

    I don't like how that man is touching her.

  86. Rmadrid10housemusic

    That man is not treating Natasha right! Why?! why do girls with so much beauty end up dating man like that! like seriously Natasha im here for youuu, but your with him, seriously?!!

  87. Ragz Originale

    What kind of greatness ... Seriously

  88. Deva7

    A bad trip case? ;)
    Anyway, that's my favorite song off the album and I'm glad it's a single... Natasha is stunningly beautiful, as always and I love the weirdness of her videos, they're so dreamy... What a refreshing artist.

  89. Vannuber

    Love it!!! <3

  90. Jerzze Macabretroose

    Perfect. Where you see a wall, doll, I see a door.

  91. Amy M

    She has an amazing voice. Could listen to her songs all day! She needs more recognition! Love Bat for Lashes...

  92. Michele Mick

    looks like he's having a bad trip

  93. Namaste Pratt

    i'm addicted to the haunted man album, it's very beautiful so is her 2 other albums!

  94. SuperEvilelvis

    What a great song! Cool video also. Natasha is so charming!

  95. bittersweetlie

    I LOVE IT!

  96. Anna Whitehead

    There's no way she can be that tall, I'm 5'9" and when I met her she seemed so tiny.. I refuse to believe her lol.

  97. Yeshua Conto

    Pearl reminds me to Edie Sedgwick.

  98. Anthony Barrass

    Just gets better with every listen!

  99. paola perez tristan

    How tall is she?
