Lyrics for Selene by NIKI:

Verse 1
She’s taken over
She’s making me want your body closer
Having a little trouble staying sober
And she’s got us all under her trance

Verse 2
Oh she’s elusive (I know)
She only rises with the music
And all of my dreams, they’re growing lucid
That’s how you know she’s up to dance
To dance, to dance, to dance

Pre-Chorus 1
And now she’s taking over me
A new notch on her belt, yeah
And your face gleams like a prophecy
I might just lose myself, yeah

Chorus
And I couldn’t care less (uh)
I couldn’t care less, baby
Feeling just a little careless lately
Push me back and pull me under (ah-ah)
She got me possessed (uh)
Now, I’m looking to get hasty
And I just want your body pressed against me
Take me down to lift me high
Take me down to lift me high
Higher, higher, ooh!

Verse 3
White flames on her torch, they’re licking on the air tonight (uh)
Chariot skid marks all over the gravel behind my eyes
Take my hand 'cause when this ends, I run
No-man’s-land sounds like a woman’s fun
We got all night long
Oh wontcha give it to me, give it to me, ah

Pre-Chorus 2
And oh she’s bubbling up again, and I do as I’m told
May be losing all my self-control

Chorus
And I couldn’t care less (uh)
I couldn’t care less, baby
Feeling just a little careless lately
Push me back and pull me under (ah-ah)
She got me possessed (uh)
Now, I’m looking to get hasty
And I just want your body pressed against me
Take me down to lift me high
Take me down to lift me high
Higher, higher, ooh!

Outro
Higher, higher, ooh!
Higher, higher, ooh!
Take me down to lift me high
Take me down to lift me high
Higher, higher, ooh!

Song Facts

Taking a much more subtle approach for the second
‘phase’ (single) of the album, NIKI’s ‘Selene’ is a breathy track that feels like a mature, underground jazz club type of song.
Selene is the name of the goddess of the moon in Greek mythology and NIKI uses her name to describe what’s basically a spirit taking over her body and causing her to feel so helplessly attracted to someone on top of craving them physically.
Given the consistent use of the various forms of the word ‘high’, the power of Selene in the eyes of NIKI could be accurately described as a high that strips away all cares and ignites a heavy infatuation for the need to dance and physical contact.
