Pompeii lyrics

Facebook “Pompeii” is a song by British band Bastille, taken from their debut album Bad Blood and released as a the record’s fourth single in early 2013. At the time it competed heavily with Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors” for Number One in the UK, but lost out by a mere 2,000 sales. It has since become the band’s unofficial anthem.

I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city we love

Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
Nothing changed at all
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settles around us


And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
Nothing changed at all
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
Nothing changed at all
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feels like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
