Chairlift - Moth To The Flame Lyrics




I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a, a
He's that kinda man, mama

I should know better than to take your love letters to heart
When the game's already lost before it starts
Hope hides inside a cliche
Like a nod of understanding
From the power who first felt this way
How can I turn away?

I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a, a
He's that kinda man, mama

But every little pull at the end of the golden rope
Fills my foolish heart with foolish hope
That maybe you might feel the same
As if feeling the same was the name of the game
The name of the game
I shouldn't be playing

I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a, a
He's that kinda man, mama

Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get
Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get
Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get
I shouldn't be playing
Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get

I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a moth to the flame
I can't help it I'm a, a

Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get
Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get
Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get
Close enough, close enough
Close enough to you, I can't get

He's that kinda man, mama

  1. B. Licky

    Forza???

  2. Rizky Aufa

    L A M P

  3. Emily Huang

    Missing Chairlift

    Alice In Salt Land

    you should listen to Pang, it’s Caroline Polachek’s (one half of the former duo called Chairlift) solo album and it’s a godsend 😭😭😭

    Gerardo Aguilar

    @Alice In Salt Land so good, definitely a must listen if you liked Chairlift and especially Moth

  4. GryndStone

    This is the only song that plays at my work that i actually enjoy

  5. TGWaddler

    jeez Metallica has changed

  6. Lauren Bruyneels

    *Ear orgasm.*

  7. Piotr Enhap Music

    kurde such beauty ....

  8. Nadiah Norman

    Something is my favourite, followed by Does you Inspire you and then Moth. but this album is still so good to listen! *sigh* this is their last album :"(

  9. thejobloshow

    Not as good as Something.

  10. nelydk

    the best song ever?

  11. rob hartmania

    She sounds like all of the female singers of Fleetwood Mac in one.

    Me Too

    You take that back!

    Christine McVie's voice is an absolute mess.

  12. bangbanginmyhead

    This song has the makings of a hit imo, so I'm surprised it isn't bigger on the charts... Oh well, anyway... I really wish this song gets a music video treatment. If not, i'm thinking of making one because i really think this song deserves a mv. The song is so hynoptically catchy. It's been stuck in my head all week.

  13. butterflight ass-as-in

    Much luv to Karolina Polaczek od Łukasza - Polaka ;) great voice, fantastic music!!!

  14. wharkana

    I love it

  15. t r a n s i e n t

    Great song

  16. Adam

    Le meilleur track de l'album c'est frais, léger top rien à dire.

    Yannick Oliveres

    bien dit

  17. Sean Smith

    Saw her sing this at Firefly and now I can't stop listening to it.

  18. Padge Vounder

    this song is sex

  19. Trevor G

    First time listening to this album: meh it's okay

    Third time listening to this album: I 👀 CANt HELP IT 🔥🔥 IM A MOTH 🐝🐛 TO THE FLAME 🔥🔥🔥🔥💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

    Trevor G

    @M. and your unnecessary reply was like your profile picture, a clinical waste

    Yannick Oliveres

    fucking savage af XD

    Ingrid Fouché Sixou

    LMAO ME

  20. Lexx Phillips

    Heard this in Forever 21 the other day. I'm in love.

  21. Matt

    This song is soooo good! It's incredibly playful and just gets better as it goes on. Insane.

  22. Elisabed G

    This reminds me of rainbows and glitter

  23. Luke Rosier

    best song i have ever heard this is the only song i listen to on way to work and back and on my travels cant get enough of it

  24. LunarSapphire

    Really want as my ringtone- but not in itunes

  25. DanTv The Alternative

    that techno-dance feeling..... d-_-b

  26. Aganazee

    Her voice reminds me of Sarah McLachlan's.

  27. August Ericson

    I love this song

  28. Danial 93

    thumbs-up if Red fm bring you here....Hahak

  29. bich.thy

    one of my favorites

  30. Yeo Soah

    I like this song :D !

  31. Luke Sanchez

    I adore the past two albums but I'm so happy with the turn chairlift is taking especially with this song damn

  32. mingsanx

    Looking forward to the instrumental of this

  33. ワブダシュ

    this makes my ears horney

  34. WubstepUK

    The sound of 2016!

  35. Benjamin J. Gemmell

    'He's that kind of man, Mama' - where is this sampled from!? It's driving me crazy

    CassieJazz96

    +Benjamin J. Gemmell I want to know! I love that line!

    sheparis2

    It's from Mario

  36. Cowgoesmoo2

    This is really simplistic.......

    Very repetitive.....

    Some One

    Verdict? Many songs are like that today. Repetitiveness can be boring but we don't have your opinion. I'm guessing you disapprove of this but you don't make yourself close enough.

    Cowgoesmoo2

    +Some One I was going to suggest that this was more un-unique than their other music.

  37. Mrsir shootsalot

    Why all the dislikes?!

    Ingrid Fouché Sixou

    Mrsir shootsalot you need to forgive them, it's not their fault they have shit taste 😔

  38. Mateo Helvetia

    I envy her husband so bad

  39. Alain Bruno

    Good song!

    isabel

    +Alain Bruno i like it too

    miguel let

    +Alain Bruno you have bad taste in music

    ryandc ranchdel

    +Alain Bruno can i kiss u?

    Aj Golon

    +miguel let Taste in music is entirely subjective, so who the fuck are you to judge another's? Caroline can fucking blow, this shit rules. If you're here randomly to shit on music you don't like, go away. If you're a previous Chairlift fan and just don't like their progression to more techno/dance-type music, strictly listen to their old shit and go away.

    Daij

    Shut the fuck up.

  40. Shiela_PTX

    here for mitch tweet

  41. marcio lima

    muito bom!!!

  42. Brent Altemus

    Anyone get Marina vibes from this? In the best way?

    W C

    Sort of. Which album or song in particular?

    Lopa

    +Brent Altemus not really, their voices are too different

    emnq

    Like Marina and the Diamonds? It reminds me of Froot, something with the into.

  43. Fernando Javier

    Genial :)

  44. dust hymn

    How can this new album only have 10 tracks? I WANT SO MUCH MORE. THEIR SO AWESOME

  45. Rodrigo Fernety

    OMG This is so addictive <3

  50. Sarah Holland

    on repeat

  51. grockcomedy

    Whitney Houston? This is not the direction I expected them to go in.

  52. johnnyatab

    Let's all agree in the year 2016 we will retire the word eargasm permanently. Thanks.

    jacobdumbdog xd

    +Some One anyone who says they're a hipster isn't a hipster

    Oh Man

    um so do you all like this song or not

    Markus Heinonen

    no deal, i dont think ive heard eargasmic song yet and will use the word if something eargastic comes up (pun intended)

    Matthew Moriarity

    fuck you

    Me Too

    and then in 2019, Pang was released and we collectively realized that in 2016 we had no idea.

  53. Eric Kolkey

    GREAT STUFF! I LOVE all of the new songs and that is why I pre-ordered the vinyl and cd! I LOVE CHAIRLIFT!!!!!!!

  54. The Galactic Empire - Star Wars

  68. weirdo Leo

    LOVE YA!!!

  69. superbadstudio

    Huge fan of the first two albums but havent really liked the new songs, aoart from this one. Great groove and vocals

    Clint Griffin

    +superbadstudio  I felt the same way. Something was instantly likeable. Moth is beginning to grow on me.

    superbadstudio

    @Clint Griffin I'll give it a few listens, I dont see Ch-Ching growing on me though. Still confused as to why they released that song... :/

    †HΣ DΣV¡LS ЯΣJΣC†

    I'm kinda with you.. This song and Something I could listen to nonstop but the other stuff on Moth hasn't impressed me like this song or like all the songs on Something did. But some are growing on me.

  70. franko6677

    Well, this won't be leaving my head anytime soon.

  71. Hernan

    loooove it! your voice is amazing 😍

  72. weirdestbonerful

  73. Maxime Cousineau-Pérusse

    Loving every song out so far, I have a feeling this album will be a big part of my 2016!
