James Bay - When We Were On Fire Lyrics




Drifting apart, getting harder to hold you
Days getting dark and the nights are growing cold
Are we burning out?
Swept out of sight, rolling up on an ocean
Let's cut all the ropes and get lost in the moment
If our hearts are alive, maybe then they might
Send us back to the sun

Now I know, I know
That we're losing light, our love is dying
Out cold on the floor
Like a fallen star that shines no more
Take, take me back to where it was before
When we were on fire, fire

Head down, heading underground feeling wasted
Cold to the bone, so alone I can taste it
Let's light it up
Streets are alive now, and everything's bracing
You're on my mind, running in my veins fueling the flame
Let's start it again

And I know, I know
That we're losing light, our love is dying
Out cold on the floor
Like a fallen star that shines no more
Take, take me back to where it was before
When we were on fire, fire
We were on fire, fire

Oh, oh, whoa, oh, whoa-oh-oh, now don't tell me no
That we're burning down
Oh, oh, whoa, oh, whoa-oh-oh, now don't tell me no
That we're burning now

I know, I know we're losing light and our love is dying
Take me, take me home
Back to where we was before when we were on fire, fire
And I know, I know that we're losing light, our love is dying
Out cold on the floor like a fallen star that shines no more
Take, take me back to where it was before when we were on fire, fire
When we were on fire, fire.

  45. sweetcurves79

    I have tickets for my FIRST James Bay show this September and I already know I’m going to sob through the whole thing! I don’t want to rush the summer by but I can’t wait for September 28th!

    Matt B

    sweetcurves79 Not to be disappointing but... I hope you don't expect it to be as AMAZING as this video and all of his "old" music because the new James is... well... new. It's kind of like painting a diamond, there's no need to change something that is all ready "perfect" "brilliant" "amazing" the way it was originally!

    Carol Doocy

    I'll see him on Sept 29 in Detroit. I also can't wait.

  46. Raquel Oliveira

    🌝🌝🌝

  47. Esmeralda Pacheco

    te amo 😭❤

  48. lil l

    I prefer him like this rather than his new stuff. His old stuff is raw, earthy and beautiful, just him being him. Such a massive shame another record company has changed yet another talented singer 💔

  49. Taka

    DEAREST FANS OF JAMES, PLEASE WATCH MY COVER <3

    Drifting apart, getting harder to hold you
    Days getting dark and the nights are growing cold
    Are we burning out?
    Swept out of sight, rolling up on an ocean
    Let's cut all the ropes and get lost in the moment
    If our hearts are alive, maybe then they might
    Send us back to the sun

    Now I know, I know
    We're losing light, our love is dying
    Out cold on the floor
    Like a fallen star that shines no more
    Take, take me back to where it was before
    When we were on fire, fire

    Head down, heading underground feeling wasted
    Cold to the bone, so alone I can taste it
    Let's light it up
    Streets are alive now, and everything's bracing
    You're on my mind, running in my veins fueling the flame
    Let's start it again

    And I know, I know
    We're losing light, our love is dying
    Out cold on the floor
    Like a fallen star that shines no more
    Take, take me back to where it was before
    When we were on fire, fire
    We were on fire, fire

    Now don't tell me no
    Then we're burning down (Whoa, whoa, whoa)
    (Whoa, whoa, whoa) And don't tell me no
    Then we're burning now (Whoa, whoa, whoa)

    'Cause I know, I know
    We're losing light and our love is dying
    Take, take me home
    Back to where it was before
    When we were on fire, fire
    No I know, I know
    We're losing light, our love is dying
    Out cold on the floor
    Like a fallen star that shines no more
    Take, take me back to where it was before
    When we were on fire, fire
    We were on fire, fire.

  82. Lily Labrecque

    So amazing!!!

  83. squidy2343

    If someone asks me why I love him so much I'd direct them to this video, because it shows why perfectly. All he needs is a guitar, an acoustic one at that, and he'll do the rest to bring his songs alive. That emotion in his voice and the passion in his guitar playing are all he needs.

    Carol Doocy

    truly phenomenal singing.

  84. Julian Salazar

    I don't know why but this reminds me of Jose Feliciano-Light my Fire, anyone else?
