Radical Face - Nightclothes Lyrics




We crept from the room
The moonlight spilled down the hall
And I tiptoed with you
Then we climbed out the window
And there in the yard
Our nightclothes blowing in the breeze
And you looked up at the sky
And said the moon would be ours

And all this time I hear those words like bombs in the distance
And oh my mind, I can still smell the rain in the air

But time's gone by
And I'm not the kid I was on that evening
And somewhere inside
I hope you still see me just the way I was before I walked away

Mud on your dress
Blood stains on the knees of my pants
And we went in search of the moon
'cause you said that you knew where it slept in the day
So we gathered up our tools:
A sling-shot in case it ran for the sky
And a blanket from your room, the one with no holes
So we could drag it all the way back home

And you said when we got it back
We would cut it in two
And we'd wear the hide so magnificent
And then I could control time for you
And I still hear the way that you laughed
When you found I believed you
And I could still feel you pull on my arm
When I was too afraid to go

And all this time I hear those words like bombs in the distance
And my, oh my, I can still smell the dirt on our hands

'cause in my head
You're still alive, you're still alive
And I know that it's a lie
But it's one I like, it's one I like

Radical Face Nightclothes Comments
  1. Warhead 3000

    Pure Beauty in the emotion of this song as is most of Ben's work!! The world is greater place for his music and thoughts. Recently saw his amazing music live at the Union Chapel in London, 3 years since the last time I saw him in concert in London. A life changing affermin experience!! The world is a so better place with his music, the sad thing he will probably never know how many of us he has touched to our actual soul and heart with his music!! I'm guessing it's many!!

  2. Payton P

    I won’t stop sobbing over this song. Especially the last few lines. It reminds me so much of my close friend who passed away.

  3. 1evonvielen

    how is it possible that I fall in love with every single song by Radical Face?

  4. JL Casotti

    Such a beautiful song from this great artist! Thanks for sharing your work and history with everyone here. You deserve always the best in your career. Cheers from Brasil! Your fan since 2013!

  5. annabel bernal

    this song makes me cry. i had friends like family and this was our anthem. thank you for the memories.

  6. Starr Vischacha

    Well that escalated fast.

  7. Giuliano Brando

    On October 29th he published this song, two years later I heard this song. Two years later I continue to listen to it, to admire it, to love it. It's been four years, they flew. The time is passing too fast, and I'm not sure that I'm living it.
    I loved you, Ben, since I listened your songs, every time I met someone, I advice to him to listen your songs.
    Me and my best friend love you, you can't imagine how many times you gave us so many emotions. I'll remember these memories for ever, and you helped me. We have thanked you a lot, but... thank you again Ben.

  8. Daniel Boris

    What an extraordinary and beautiful song. You can feel the emotions stacking up inside you from the start and releasing into a wave of goosebumps at the last few verses...

  9. Velican Nacar

    kesinlikle değeri bilinemeyen çok ama çok özel parçalardan biri radical face bilenlerin bile bilmediği ama underrated diye tabir edilen (en azından benim için) şaheserlerden .ne zaman mutsuzluğa düşsem ne zaman bu hayat yolundan çıksam sığındığım liman diyebilirim. cause in my head you re still alive :( enfes be

  10. DownwardGoose

    Recently found out that this song was dedicated to his late sister, Hannah. You are a wonderful person, Ben. Truly life changing.

    CYTRON BANDERS

  11. BropezNick

    It should be a law that all youtube videos include the lyrics in their descriptions

    Im in love with this song. I play it at guitar but i wanna play it better... The thing is theres no covers and i cant find the live version, so its hard for me to play it better... I need someone to follow!

  14. dead cuckoo

    2 years later and this song still destroys me every time.

  15. Barbi Jackson

    This song makes me want to curl up, on a rainy day, in my favorite chair under a fuzzy, warm blanket and watch out the window until you come walking back up the driveway.  You'll have your hands in your pants pockets and a smirk on your face and I know the world be set right again...

  16. Calista Stanley

    I absolutely adore this song... oh my

    Gender Fluid Person In Hotdog Suit

    the ending of the song plays like fireworks in the night sky. a burst of colour and light, and then darkness. love it.

  25. Alvin

    This song is so beautiful. :')

  26. Nocturnal

    Sounds quite similar to Summer Skeletons. Radical Face made me open my eyes to real music since 2011. Ben Cooper, you are the king of indie folk.

  27. m d

    saludos desde panama muchas gracias. 

  30. Valter Meyer

    right after the second verse where you sing "so we could drag it all the way back home", instead of continuing to the bridge you should have made the verse longer and added a violin or a lead or something. it would sound sooo good and i get so mad every time that part comes because it would sound so good if that verse would continue and then jump to the chorus.

    marc12121993

    i feel like its perfectly fine continuing with the bridge right after

    hattivatti3000

    It's perfect like this

    Heidi G.

    O.O That's one of my favorites part of the song!! :) If ANY song should have been continued differently it's gotta be *WEST*. It ends so abrupt and almost disconnected from the whole song.. ~sighs THAT's another fav song I usually put on repeat 😍 but it gets little jarring at the end for me.

    We crept from the room

    And oh my, my, I can still smell the rain in the air

    But time's gone by
    And I'm not the kid I was on that evening

    And you said when we got it back
    We would cut it up in two
    And we'd wear the halves on necklaces
    And then I could control tides with you

    I still hear the way that you laughed
    When you found I believed you
    And I could still feel you pull on my arm
    When I was too afraid to go

    All this time I hear those words like bombs in the distance
    My, oh my, I can still smell the dirt on our hands

    'cause in my head
    You're still alive, you're still alive

    But it's one I like, it's one I like

    Ben, I really want to thank you for your work. Your music is brilliant, touching and very personal. You and your band made, and keep making my favourite songs. It's because your songs really do mean something. I feel that they are more like stories about you, me and everybody who listens to them. So thank you again and keep in this astonishing work.

  43. kot_robot

    DAAAAAAYYYYYUUUUM!!!

  44. TFareCool

    This might just be the best Bastards EP out of the 3. 

    And this song is an absolute work of beauty.

    Richard Carr

    West from the last Bastards EP is one of my favourite songs by him, and this and Sisters definitely sound like they'll be up there as well... it's the kind of music that takes your breath away.

    we love you Ben <3

  45. Midnight Glow

    Brilliant music, man, much love! <3
