Metric - No Lights On The Horizon Lyrics



It's true, I'm flawed
It's all my fault
I made every mistake
Paper walls break
And it's all falling through

The past isn't far away
It's part of all of us, it's here to stay
I'm more than able to follow through
I'm just not for everyone
I might be just for you

If it wasn't for your kindness, I think I might be dead
If it wasn't for the way you said, "Oh, stay with me instead"
No lights on the horizon, no sign of what's ahead
If it wasn't for your kindness lately, I'd never get out of bed

The past, it isn't far away
In spite of all of us, it's here to stay
I'm more than able to follow through
Just not for everyone
Maybe just for you

If it wasn't for your kindness, I think I might be dead
If it wasn't for the way you said, "Oh, stay with me instead"
No lights on the horizon, no sign of what's ahead
If it wasn't for your kindness lately, I'd never get out of bed

It's true, I'm flawed
It's all my fault
I made every mistake
Paper walls break
And it's all falling through

If it wasn't for your kindness, I think I might be dead
If it wasn't for the way you said, "Oh, stay with me instead"
No lights on the horizon, no sign of what's ahead
If it wasn't for your kindness lately, I'd never get out of bed

    Metric is definitely the best band I've found in years!

  5. Mike Schmidt

    Emily and the boys are soooo good live! I love Metric! Check out some of Emily's solo stuff too! Dr. Blind is a great tune.

  6. Aylin Matsumi

    It's true, I'm flawed
    It's all my fault
    I made every mistake
    Paper walls break
    And it's all falling through

    The past isn't far away
    It's part of all of us, it's here to stay
    I'm more than able to follow through
    I'm just not for everyone
    I might be just for you

    If it wasn't for your kindness, I think I might be dead
    If it wasn't for the way you said: Oh, stay with me instead
    No lights on the horizon, no sign of what's ahead
    If it wasn't for your kindness lately, I'd never get out of bed

    The past, it isn't far away
    In spite of all of us, it's here to stay
    I'm more than able to follow through
    Just not for everyone
    Maybe just for you

    If it wasn't for your kindness, I think I might be dead
    If it wasn't for the way you said: Oh, stay with me instead
    No lights on the horizon, no sign of what's ahead
    If it wasn't for your kindness lately, I'd never get out of bed

    It's true, I'm flawed
    It's all my fault
    I made every mistake
    Paper walls break
    And it's all falling through

    If it wasn't for your kindness, I think I might be dead
    If it wasn't for the way you said: Oh, stay with me instead
    No lights on the horizon, no sign of what's ahead
    If it wasn't for your kindness lately, I'd never get out of bed

    "The Past. it isn't far away... It's here to stay. " oh god.. :'(

  8. David Brody

    AMAZING!!!

  9. 3rd Dragunov

    I love emily haines

  10. giovanni de francesco

    I was about to buy a company and somehow this song made me realise that what I really wanted was spending time with my kids that are 3 and 1 years old. I wouldn't be able to take vacations and be always prepared to received a phone call for atleast a dozen of years. At the last minute I turned it down and only wanted to be a simple worker. Thank you Metric. Suddenly everything seems less heavy.

  11. Just Killing Time

    I love this.

  12. maurizio nuage

    thank you Romeo .

  13. S. Kh.

    From "Speed the Collapse" to the "Art of Doubt" metric's in my playlist,the whole year round. Love Emily and the guitar player

    80s vibe, love it, perfect for lying on your bed, and pretending you're a teenager again.

  22. Karen Gonzalez

  23. Christopher Cooper

    " STAR LIGHTS ABOVE THE BIG DARK CLOUD ....."

  39. bridgemasterx

    Heartbreakingly good

  40. Vattmann

    So what are the tour locations?

  41. Busy Bee Fitness Experts - Personal Trainer Toronto

    Best album of theirs and yet the least successful commercially. People have lost their minds when it comes to good music.

  42. Oslan Silva

    Olha quem está de volta!! Que vibe boa! 😍😍

  43. Matt Hughes Music

    Never heard them before, I really like it!

  44. Ravenno

    Que linda canção, merece muito mais views!!

  45. Vivianita

    Mi favorita del disco <3

  46. Bruno Mendes

    Just got into this band and damn, it's so good.

    Amelia Rose

    Better late than never! Enjoy your stay 😊

    Kylo Ren

    Definitely buy there first first 3 albums and their b-sides grow up and blow away also their DVD live at Metropolis and "knives don't have your back" Emily Haines and the soft skeleton CD and "what is free to a good home" I have everything else they have put out but these things are essential 😉 or just try to download/listen to the stuff where you can I like having things I can hold in my hands tangible things are so much more satisfying than downloads to me...😉

  47. Aaron Kroeker

    Love it! Would love to hear an acoustic version of this too!

  48. Gravey Davey

    Most relatable song of the year.

  49. Warrior Of Perseverance

    I love this song. It's perfectly dark and lovely

  50. Kevin Burress

    Skylines in numbers? Fair to midland.. "until we can't see what's ahead" short haired tornado. Howard shore? Similarities is all. Skylines, lights, half the horizon is gone.. the past? So what is the fourth dimension here? Kind of reminds me of hall and oats interpreted by the bird and the bee in a metric style. I've gone more with an intellectual interest with metric lately. No love shown none given. Interesting.

  51. smart esquivel

    A truly amazing song :)

  52. felipe sosa

    I found the light on my horizon with your song! Long Live Metric

  53. Victor Boev

    So great.

  54. La Revancha Jorge Fernandez

    Long Live Metric! Carajo!!

  55. Kanny Sindulfo

    BEAUTIFUL! BEAUTIFUL !

  56. JB Bopp

    Glad you guys are back, powerful stuff.

  57. Chris Ferriola

    Such an inspirational song ❤️

  58. TheFuktastic

    Magnificent tune.

  59. Roderic Telford

    Love the new album

  60. Liara

    The album is so good I could cry

    Roy Blackwell

    I do....often. xo

    Canadian Drifter

    This album did it for me too. Great therapy :)

    Ken Kenichi

    You can cry on my shoulder.

  61. electra heart

    this song is so sweet and beautiful

    If it wasn't for your kindness lately
    I'd never get out of bed

    so much love!! if it wasn't for your music, Metric ...😍😍😍

    La Revancha Jorge Fernandez

    So you like Marina and Metric too!?, can i be your boyfriend? jeje just a joke, this song it is what it is, the one we were looking for from them. Oh and also Marina is already in "the" studio. Good times are coming!!! be well and peace!!!

    electra heart

    yes!! and she is doing a collab with Lana del Rey I think so, good things are coming ❤ hablas en español? conozco muy pocos fans de Metric de habla hispana, creo que por eso no visitan Latinoamerica 💔

    La Revancha Jorge Fernandez

    Si!! Estamos en Argentina, Donde estas vos?, a mi hija tambien le encantan Marina y Metric. Por mi parte no me agrada del Rey, mucha cirugia, muy artificial. Marina esta en otro nivel. A Metric los escuche por accidente en el 2004 con la cancion The Police and the Private, desde ese dia esperaba por cada cancion, disco que sacaran jeje!. y si es muy lejano pensar que podrian venir! Bu!

  62. RadBrad5

    Such a deep song it makes me reflect on my life

  63. BTW

    Fell in love since the twilight saga eclipse soundtrack had you guys in the credits ❤️

    Galaxianista

    Same here. I can't believe it's been 8 years since then!

  64. EnsignEdwards

    Beautiful song.

    Between this and and Now or Never Now I swear Emily has been spying on me and is writing songs about my life.

    Amelia Rose

    I get that same feeling too. 😊 their songwriting is so universal and unique. I haven't found a band or artist that comes close to the quality that Metric creates. ❤

    Leah T.

    This is absolutely my experience as well. Their entire discography is a strange mirror to the events of my life, and always right on time when it's released. <3

    CrackerBlue

    The unique and different

  65. dgreek7

    Got the CD in the mail yesterday morning and trust me, this is the best song on the album. Art if Doubt (referring to the specific song) is pretty damn good too.

  66. andrew turvill

    This album is going to be epic

    Kanny Sindulfo

    Emily has a angel voice!

    Kanny Sindulfo

    Emily is The Goddess of Rock!

  67. Alan Branco

    Lovely returning ❤

  68. Guy Reece

    More iconic music to transcend the ages.

  69. Piscator Flies

    You guys rock for putting the album up. Can't wait to see this live.
