Rogers, Maggie - The Knife Lyrics




The knife of insight tore its way in me
A bad collision without sympathy
And maybe when the sun goes down
Come 'round, or come out
Maybe we could take some time
Unwind, figure out
When the knife of insight tore its way in me

Don't hit me up if you're feeling down
Give a little, oh I'll figure this out
Keep me up, keep my mind turned 'round
After dark, after light
Let it go if you won't get love
Make a little fuss, so we taller now
Beautiful how it all pours out
After dark, after light
After dark, after light

Oh, the knife of insight brought me to my knees
Broke me down and taught me how to see
And I know, and I know, and I know
That maybe we should take some time, get this out, make this right
Maybe when the sun goes down, come 'round, tell you all about
When the knife of insight brought me to my knees

Don't hit me up if you're feeling down
Give a little, oh I'll figure this out
Keep me up, keep my mind turned 'round
After dark, after light
Let it go if you won't get love
Spark a little, oh we taller now
Beautiful how it all pours out
After dark, after light
Whoa, after dark, after light
Oh, oh

Now maybe I'm crazy, maybe you know
But I've got this feeling, it's all 'bout to blow
Maybe I'm crazy, or maybe you know that
I've got this feeling, it's all about to blow
And the knife, the knife, the knife
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh hit me up if you're feeling down
Give a little, oh I'll figure this out
Keep me up, keep my mind turned 'round
After dark, after light
Let it go if you won't get love
Love a little, oh we taller now
Beautiful how it all pours out
After dark, after light
Oh, after dark, after light
After dark, after light
Oh, oh
Beautiful, down below
Oh it's all after dark

And the knife
Oh, the knife
Oh

Rogers, Maggie The Knife Comments
  1. starxsirius

    Raisa Bruner says: " Maggie Rogers may bring to mind a kind of nouveau-hippie sensibility, but on "The Knife" the pop-rock-singer-songwriter puts herself at the unexpected intersection of dance and pop. There are metallic crackles, industrial echoes, rolling, bouncy beats. And over it all, Rogers letting her flexible, expressive voice carry a bright melody with a cutting message: "Oh, the knife of insight brought me to my knees / Broke me down and taught me how to see," she sings with world-weary restraint. The song lifts her back up. "

  2. Pinó Grigio

    This should be everywhere. The start is amazing!! Lovely M!!!

  3. SRG

    This sounds like a strange mixture between Sia and Florence Welch... also a bit of Sigrid if I hear closely and at the same time like something totally new. I love it 😍😍😍 I subscribed hopefully our future big independent artist.

    Keep me up, keep my mind around
    After dark, after light
    Let it go if you want, get loud
    Make a little fuss, oh it's all allowed
    Beautiful how it all pours out
    After dark, after light
    After dark, after light

    Oh, the knife of insight brought me to my knees
    Broke me down and taught me how to see
    And I know, and I know, and I know that maybe we should

    When the knife, the knife, the knife
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Love a little, oh it's all allowed
    Beautiful how it all pours out
    After dark, after light
    Oh, after dark, after light
    After dark, after light
    Oh, oh
    Beautiful, down low
    Oh it’s all after dark
    And the knife
    Oh, the knife
    Oh

    Soo Deep

    Robert Lukens

    These lyrics are gangster af

    LuKas Kasdan

    Yes! Thank you for posting these lyrics. I've been stumbling over some words that I couldn't figure - LOL!
    I think the third line in the chorus is "Keep me up, keep my mind turned 'round"

    Jonathan Richardson

    Lyrics sites say 'torques it's way' not 'tore it's way', and that's what I hear.

  48. Aya Saab

    Man this album sounds goood

  49. Aya Saab

  51. Darren Pearlman

    Sia wants her hit back #jealous

    Soporte

    Darren Pearlman I thought this song sounded like something from sia? Do you know the song name? Or is it just the sound of her voice that reminds me of said voice? if you could answer I would greatly appreciate it, have a wonderful day!

    malena martinez

    Hi! I think the song you're looking for is called Waterfall by Pink and [email protected]

    Soporte

    malena martinez thank you! It's been driving me nuts trying to figure it out; have a good day/night

    Art by Atlas

    @Soporte Keep in mind, this song was produced by Sia's main producer, Greg Kurstin. Those two have worked together for nearly 15+ years, I believe.

    Soporte

    Art by Atlas thanks for the fun fact 👌

  52. Bo_Jelin

    MissRandomComment

    soartdeco

    Ang Berry

    Thi B lmao ur wrong. This is her first album release. EPS are the same.

    Thi B

    Ang Berry no she has two albums but they were for school projects etc. EPs can be three song demos or singles. But these were 12/13 track albums.

    Ali

  59. Fer Silva

    I love this so much, the beat reminds me of a 90s R&B song and her vocals are amazing

    Steve Moody

    It reminds me of ... The Knife (the band)

  60. HonestHedgehog Life

    “Let me see what you have” “A knife!” “No!!”

    Michael Hamilton

    The way that kid said "a knife" always made me laugh. He was running super fast too ahah
