Lyrics for Latch by Disclosure:

Intro
Never
Never
Never

Verse 1: Sam Smith
You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down
You, you enchant me even when you're not around
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down
I’m latching on, babe, now I know what I have found

Pre-Chorus: Sam Smith
I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Chorus: Sam Smith
Now I've got you in my space
I won't let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you
Now I've got you in my space
I won't let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you

Verse 2: Sam Smith
I'm so encaptured, got me wrapped up in your touch
Feel so enamoured, hold me tight within your clutch
How do you do it? You got me losing every breath
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest?

Pre-Chorus: Sam Smith
I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?
I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Chorus: Sam Smith
Now I've got you in my space
I won't let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you
Now I've got you in my space
I won't let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you

Outro: Sam Smith
I'm latching on to you
I won't let go of you
I'm latching on to you
I won't let go of you
I won't let go, I won't let go
I won't let go, I won't let go

Song Facts

With its full-bodied vocals, “Latch” sums up the delirious feeling of falling head over heels in love with someone.

Showstopping, indelible and effusive—not to mention successful! It hit 11 in the UK and peaked at 7 in the US almost 2 years after its original release date. It also inspired Disclosure and Smith to collaborate again, with the two of them working together later on “Omen.”

British singer Sam Smith, who provides the vocals on the track, was initially hesitant to jump on the project. In an interview with KISS FM UK, he was quoted as saying:

I remember hearing “Latch” and I didn’t even know whether it was good or not, because I didn’t know electronic music or dance music. It just wasn’t for me.

Fortunately, despite his early inexperience, he took the opportunity and his career was launched.
