HeartSongs - 20171120 Featured

Welcome to HeartSongs, our regularly scheduled (probably) look at songs and the people who write them. We spoke to Norwich’s Lightscape about their recent single ‘By Design’.

“‘By Design’ relates to trying to change someone and attempting to understand their behaviour. In the end you realise that’s just how they are and that to pursue more could cause further damage. All five of us chipped in making the track what it is. But It started like most of our songs with Sam, Will and Ben bouncing ideas around a computer.

The second verse riff and the chorus were two completely separate ideas that came together to give the song some legs, the rest of the tune being natural progression from there.

Its actually got recorded more than once and then we decided to restructure it with a synthier intro to help ease the intensity along more. I also remember being blown away by the vocal takes for the chorus.”

By Design LYRICS

Don't ever wonder why you've never had much luck,

you've taken leave of your senses, you seem to clutch,

to this idea this illusion, convincing yourself you'll be fine this time.

 

Once you put out the fire, but now you fan the flames,

and as you search the ashes, a heart remains

a heart that's clouded your judgement, fighting with all of the warning signs.

 

 I’ve been here before, I can feel your presence all around me,

It scares me that I thought, we left this all behind

 

So here’s another chance, for you to pull the strings,

an opportunity to get back underneath her skin,

while you've had time to work on your disguise, I'm not buying it, you cant blame me

 

Call it coincidence, i call it by design,

as I'm witnessing the sudden turning of the tide,

So don't you sell me your reasons, don't sell me your lies, I'm stuck with the memories, I get the feeling that

 

I’ve been here before, I can feel your presence all around me,

It scares me that I thought, we left this all behind.

The only thing I know, is I won’t waste my time on you pretending,

Testing my resolve, and doubting my own mind.

 

It scares me that I thought, it scares me that I thought, it scares me that I thought we left this all behind

 

I’ve been here before, I can feel your presence all around me,

It scares me that I thought, we left this all behind.

The only thing I know, is I won’t waste my time on you pretending,

Testing my resolve, and doubting my own mind.
