"Lazuli" as written by and Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand Alex Kristian Scally....
In the blue, of this life
Where it ends, in the night
When you couldn't see you would come for me

Wonder eyes, motion high
And we don't dare slip on by

Make us suffer, like no other

Is nothing like lapis lazuli
Let it go, back to me

Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced

Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced

Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced
Like no other you can't be replaced

    Lyric CorrectionWell, the lyrics according to Bloom's booklet are:

    In the blue, of this life
    where it ends, in the night
    when you couldnt see you would come for me

    wonder eyes, motion high
    and i dont dare, slip on by

    make us suffer, like no other

    Is nothing like lapis lazuli
    let it go, back to me

    Like no other you cant be replaced

    General CommentThis song is a "mood piece", conveying a mood and certain feelings through music and not so much with the words. The sight of Lapis Lazuli, a beautiful, rare, blue-colored stone has inspired this song, as the band openly stated. The starting point was a feeling evoked by sight, with the intention of passing it on through music. And Lazuli pulls it off...

    My InterpretationThis is the song that turned me to Beach House and I've been puzzled by the lyrics since day one. I have no idea what it means but I doubt the song is about anything in particular.

    Got thinking on the line "like no other you can't be replaced (is nothing like lapis lazuli)" and it's weird because actually lapis lazuli is very unique so you can't really say it can be replaced. But if you look into the history of the stone, you'll find that a) in ancient times some cultures refered to this stone as "sapphire", which nowaydays we use to call another stone; and b) lazuli is the genesis of the word "azul", which is Spanish for blue (the same for other languages such as Italian). So perhaps by saying that contrary to lapis lazuli you can't be replace she's making a reference to that. No one could confuse you for someone else because you are unique.

    The line "when you couldn't see you would come for me" is interesting too because I think it can be read two different ways. In the first way she is directly talking to a person that used to come to her for help. But you could also read it as if it was the stone itself that's saying the line, as lapis lazuli was used in ancient times to cure illness related to the eyes.

    Lyric CorrectionYo, these are the lyrics I hear.

    In the blue of this light
    Where it ends in the night
    When you couldn't sleep
    You would come for me

    Wander eyes, ocean high
    And we don't dare slip on by
    Make her suffer
    Like no other

    It's nothing like
    Lapis Lazuli
    Let it go
    Back to me

    Like no other
    You could be replaced

    Like no other (It's nothing like)
    You could be replaced (Lapis Lazuli)

    My InterpretationI see three strong elements in this music. The Lazuli, eyes, and a broken heart.

    I have always seen this song as a person begging for his love to come back to the relationship. The loved one is irreplaceable and has bright blue eyes. Soon the comparison with Lapis Lazuli becomes strong and leads the feeling of the song.
