Lyrics for Headlights by James Vincent McMorrow:

Verse 1
I adore you
Everyone else can start to leave
Fall apart like they're on the breeze
I adore you
Set the fire
Let it burn there in front of us
Flare just like chemicals
Set the fire

Pre-Chorus
Has the weight of my love (Weight of my love)
Has the weight of my love been killing you?
I know you felt it
But never would have said it
Til' you're screaming how it isn't true

Chorus
Who's there for you?
Laying in the dark, laying in the dark
As the headlights start to fade
And we kiss like runaways
What's left for you?
Keep an open mind, keep an open mind
As the headlights start to fade
And I'm gone before you wake

Post-Chorus
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Verse 2
Do it for me
Hold my sin like it's criminal
Lock it down like a prisoner
Do it for me
Save my number
I could be right, lately, I've been wrong
I could be weak, maybe never strong
Save my number

Pre-Chorus
Has the weight of your love (Weight of your love)
Has the weight of your love been killing me?
I know I felt it
But never would have said it
Til' I'm screaming how I still believe

Chorus
Who's there for you?
Laying in the dark, laying in the dark
As the headlights start to fade
And we kiss like runaways
What's left for you?
Keep an open mind, keep an open mind
As the headlights start to fade
And I'm gone before you wake

Post-Chorus
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
As the headlights start to fade
Yeah, yeah

Bridge
(When the headlights)
Have faded
Will you want to be alone with me?
(Headlights)
Have faded
Will you wonder if my heart's still beating?
I've got a feeling that it's on your mind

Chorus
Who's there for you? (For you)
Laying in the dark, laying in the dark (Lying in the dark, babe)
As the headlights start to fade (Start to fade, start to fade)
And we kiss like runaways (Kiss like runaways)
What's left for you? (For you)
Keep an open mind, keep an open mind (Keep an open mind)
As the headlights start to fade (Headlights start to fade)
And I'm gone before you wake (Gone before you wake)

Song Facts

Here’s what James Vincent McMorrow said about “Headlights” on his Instagram.

This song, to me, is about fragility and doubt. Some days i definitely feel like i can take on anything and anyone. Others nothing i do feels close to where i want it to be. That’s been the cycle most of my life. I’d wager most of you feel the same way. The last few years i’ve understood that what i feel is often a world away from the reality. Rather than try and force things into the positions i think they should be in order to feel well, like i used to, i’ve tried to embrace the chaos of it all, lean back when i used to lean forward. It’s helped. My hope is that a song like this might put you in a place where you’ll be reminded too that no one has their shit together, we’re all trying.
