Lyrics

play I caught you   me under the light
play Can I realign?
play They say it's easy to   you behind
play I don't want  

play Cut cover, take that  
play Hold   to your  
play Don't wanna   for you
play Don't wanna have to  
play All that I've  
play to feel another  
play I've got to keep it   tonight

play And oh, oh, oh
play I was a   under your control
play And oh, oh, oh
play I wanna feel like you've let me go
play So let me go

play Don't you remember how I used to like
play Being on the   ?
play I dreamed you   of me calling out my name
play Is it   the price?

play Cut cover, take that test
play Hold courage to your chest
play Don't wanna wait for you
play Don't wanna have to lose
play All that I've compromised
play to feel another high
play I've got to keep it down tonight

play And oh, oh, oh
play I was a king under your control
play And oh, oh, oh
play I wanna feel like you've let me go

play I had to   myself to carry on
play No love and no  
play Take this from me  
play Oh, let's fight
play Oh, let's fight
play Oh, let's fight
play Oh

play And oh, oh, oh
play I was a king under your control
play And oh, oh, oh
play I wanna feel like you've let me go
play So let me go

play Let go, let go, let go of everything
play Let go, let go, let go of everything
play Let go, let go, let go of everything
play Let go, let go, let go of everything

meaningMeaning

Olly Alexander explained to Digital Spy the meaning of the song:

It's about being in a relationship with someone and how that can feel really intoxicating, but that can be really addictive and you can feel like a king. You know it has to end and you feel it's going bad, but you don't feel strong enough to end it yourself. You want the other person to end it. That's what I felt like I was going through over the period of a year, and then towards the end, I wrote the song.
