"Look After Me" as written by and Joseph/taylor Goddard....
[Chorus: x2]
Look after me and I will look after you
That's something we both forgot to do

I find it hard to see your face, do do de de hay
Cannot remember it well enough, only the details such, then I see it in my head,
When I am with you its familiar and beautiful, and ?

As night comes in I know it better, seeing it clear again

[Chorus: x2]

'Cause if I squint then I see your so, far from me, far from me
As if my miracle I see the room I see ?

The words and images they come back to me, back to me
Crystal clear in my head, but its behind the screen

[Chorus: x3]

Every time I see your face I break down and cry,
I see it in your family as they walk on by

[Repeat: x2]
Come back to me and ill come back to you,
That's something we don't always do

    General CommentI love this song, but these are the lyrics I hear:

    look after me and i'll look after you
    that's something we both forgot to do
    x2

    i find it hard to see your face day to day
    and i remember it well enough
    or in the details such that i see it in my head
    when i am with you it's familiar and beautiful
    and i love it as i love you
    as night comes in i know it better but see it less clear again

    look after me and i'll look after you
    that's something we both forgot to do
    x2

    as if i'm squinting I see you are so far from me, far from me
    as if by miracle I see a room, i see us three
    with words and music these images
    they come back to me, back to me
    crystal clear in my head but it's behind the screen

    look after me and i'll look after you
    that's something we both forgot to do
    x4

    every time i see your face i break down and cry
    i see it in your family as they walk on by

    come back to me and i'll come back to you
    that's something we both will always do

    come back to me and i'll come back to you
    that's something we both can now not do

    General Commentsuch a powerful song, especially
    every time i see your face i break down and cry
    i see it in your family as they walk on by

    come back to me and i'll come back to you
    that's something we both will always do

    come back to me and i'll come back to you
    that's something we both can now not do

    it's a great romantic electro song as manumadmia says! You can just hear the emotion in his voice so clearly. Great break up song

    General CommentThis song is beautiful. I was so surprised when I first heard it because I wasn't expecting anything like this on the album when I bought it.

    "when i am with you it's familiar and beautiful
    and i love it as i love you"

    I love those lyrics!


    I assume that this is about the death of a loved one

    General CommentMaybe it's about a loving and passionate relationship...
    "when i am with you it's familiar and beautiful
    and i love it as i love you"
    She has gotten pregnant..
    "i see us three
    with words and music"
    But she is/ they both are too young for a family..
    And regretfully, her parents have forbade them seeing each other anymore..
    "every time i see your face i break down and cry
    i see it in your family as they walk on by"
    But they try to find some way of going back to each other...
    Even if they cant be physical anymore
    "come back to me and i'll come back to you
    that's something we both can now not do "

    Probably a long shot..

    MemoryOh this song is beautiful but it absolutely kills my soul. It makes me think of a boy who broke my heart.
    But I still love Hot Chip. This songs definitely articulates something I never could.
