Who Sings That ‘Pompeii’ Song? – Bastille [LYRICS & VIDEO]

Bastille has quickly become one of my new favorite bands and their single ‘Pompeii’ has been played on my stereo more times than I can count.You can watch to video for the song above and read on for the lyrics to the song.

Something about the chanting, the percussion clicks, the beat, the lyrics…this song just really strikes a chord with me.

Bastille are an English band that was started as a solo project by Dan Smith. (The name of the band is derived from Bastille Day, at least according to Wikipedia.)

‘Pompeii’ by Bastille. (From the Album “Bad Blood.”)

Lyrics:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?
