“Chasing Lights” Lyrics


“Chasing Lights”
Go on go on go on (4x)

I’ve been doing this my way
your way, our way
can’t make it work
when all i have is not enough

i’ve been doing all i can
my plan, your plan
and all i get is hurt
This game we’re playing has to stop

I got you stuck in my head
And all you do is breaking me
I can’t continue taking this
I tried my best to understand
but I cannot make sense of you
I got to take a stand and baby

I don’t wanna waste another day
I don’t wanna live my life this way
I’m tired, I just wanna lie back down

I don’t wanna waste another night
I don’t wanna keep on chasing lights
so go on go on go on
go on go on go on
bye bye…

I remember I met you
let you get your way in everything
you took complete control of me
I remember you lying, crying, trying to get away with it
But now I know cause now I see

I believed all that you said
I never questioned any nights
I never opened up my eyes
All your words got me misled
Now I’m standing
I’m alive
I never hurt you by my side.

I don’t wanna waste another day
I don’t wanna live my life this way
I’m tired, I just wanna lie back down

I don’t wanna waste another night
I don’t wanna keep on chasing lights
so go on go on go on
go on go on go on
bye bye…
bye byeee oohhh

I’ve been doing this my way
your way, our way
it doesn’t work
When all I have is not enough
I’ve been all I can
my plan, your plan
and all I get is hurt

I don’t wanna waste another day
I don’t wanna live my life this way
I’m tired, I just wanna lie back down

I don’t wanna waste another night
I don’t wanna keep on chasing lights
so go on go on go on
go on go on go on
bye bye…
bye byeee oohhh

bye bye.

The Saturdays 1

By Nick Levine, Music Editor

The Saturdays proved an instant hit with pop fans when their debut single, the Yazoo-sampling ‘If This Is Love’, cracked the top ten in August. Now the effervescent five-piece are aiming to make it two in a row with ‘Up’, an electropop track that’s even more infectious than their debut. Are they feeling nervous? We hooked up with the girls to find out.

How have things changed for The Saturdays since you first spoke to DS in July?
Rochelle: “There’s more to do now, but in a good way! More people are recognising us and because our single charted well we’re wanted for more TV shows and gigs.”
Una: “It’s just got really busy for us, but that’s the way we want it.”

Were you pleased with ‘If This Is Love’s chart position?
Mollie: “We were thrilled! Nobody really knew The Saturdays at that point and for a new girl group to go straight into the top ten is fantastic.”
Frankie: “It just really puts the pressure on us now for the next one.”

What’s the aim for ‘Up’?
Rochelle: “Top ten again definitely, but it seems like everyone who’s anyone has got a single out right now. Loads of girls are making a comeback at the moment, so we’re even more scared than last time.”

Your album’s coming out in a couple of weeks too. Is ‘Up’ or ‘If This Is Love’ a better indication of what we should expect?
Frankie: “Actually I think ‘Up’ is a better representation than ‘If This Is Love’.”
Una: “But the album’s got a bit of everything – pop, hints of R&B, a bit of electro and some really strong ballads too.”
Frankie: “We worked with Rihanna’s producers on a couple of songs and one of our writers has written for the Pussycat Dolls, so we feel like we’ve worked with some of the best people around. We’re just dead excited.”

Who chose the album title, “Chasing Lights“?
Una: “It’s actually one of the tracks on the album, so we all just thought, ‘Aha! That would be a good title’.”
Rochelle: “It’s a very apt title and it explains a bit about us, because we’re chasing our names in lights.”
Una: “We’re still chasing the dream, aren’t we? It’s still very early days for us. We haven’t really been established yet and it’s up to the public to decide whether we’re still going to be around in a year.”
Vanessa: “We kinda feel like we’re still on trial. We know we’ve got a long way to go.”

What was the worst album title that was suggested?
Rochelle: “Probably ‘Saturday Night Fever’.”
Frankie: “And people made up a rumour on the internet that the album was going to be called ‘Taking Back Sunday’ – you know, like the band. They put it on our Wikipedia page so everyone thought it was true. We were like, ‘Oh no, is that really going to be our title without us even knowing? Please don’t let that be our title!'”

You’re about to shoot an episode of Late Night Hollyoaks. What can you tell us about that?
Una: “Even though we’re playing us in the episode we’re still acting. It’s all top secret though, so we can’t say very much.”
Vanessa: “And we will be performing during the episode, but they’ll probably just show some clips instead of the whole performance.”

Finally, what do you think of Britney’s new single?
Rochelle: “I love it, I’ve got it on my MySpace page now! Womanizer, womanizer, womanizer, womanizer…”
Mollie: “She always comes out with great songs – she never fails to do that, even when her personal life’s not going so well.”

Do you think she can pull off the comeback?
Una: “Oh, it’s definitely going to happen. She seems to be cleaning up, doesn’t she? She’s looking better every time we see her.”
Mollie: “I think it was really good for her to appear at the VMAs. She looked really well and winning all those awards was just what she needed.”

‘Up’ by The Saturdays is out now. The group’s debut album, Chasing Lights, follows on October 27.
