Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “NightLight”

The whole “twistical” piece I’m unsure of, but it would make sense, so I’ve kept it. It kind of sounds like “twist-a-blue”, too. I’m just unsure. Definitely open to suggestion on that one. Anything with an Astrix again denotes confusion. Yukimi, help!

Edit: When I said “Yukimi, help!” I wasn’t expecting that to actually be case until this Tweet from @twittledragon: “@littledragonews well done! real close!… twisted blue form of light turning over etc etc lol”

Edit: Lawrence has gone one better than Yukimi by providing the 100% official links from the liner notes. Thank you!

“NightLight”
Words written by Yukimi Nagano

Open the door, there you’re standing in a row
Dancing in a twisted blue form of light – turning over
Making a sound, then your braiding it around
Turning in a twisted blue form of light – moving your shoulders
1, 2, you move, your feet, your shoes
Flying like a arrow in the room

Be my angel, love
Tell me everything I need from above
Be my heroine, tell them please what we need to never be sin
Be forever sun
Never, never, ever stop everyone
Be my shining light
Lady, I believe you transform the night

Open the door, there you’re standing in a row
Dancing in a twisted blue form of light – turning over
Making a sound, then your braiding it around
Turning in a twisted blue form of light – moving your shoulders
1, 2, you move, your feet, your shoes
Flying like a arrow in the room

Be my angel, love
Tell me everything I need from above
Be my heroine, tell them please what we need to never be sin
Be forever sun
Never, never, ever stop everyone
Be my shining light
Lady, I believe you tranform the night

You open my mind, got me floating out of time
Dancing in a twisted blue form of light
Drifting a sound, got me turning it around
Moving in a twisted blue form of life – moving your shoulders
1, 2, you move, your feet, your shoes
Flying like a arrow in the room

  1. Do the liner notes on the physical album contain the lyrics? I pre-ordered my on Amazon, but UPS is slow so I’vn’t gotten it yet :(

  2. I think the second line in the first first (and recurring verses) is, “Dancing and twisting to form a line”

  3. We have real confusion over that line, too – but Yukimi told me yesterday that it was indeed “dancing in a twisted blue form of life – turning over”.

    Lawrence, I have no idea yet. I’ve ordered mine to be shipped for home (Ireland), and I’m in California until mid-August, so I have to wait a while before I get my hands on it. Maybe when they release their new website lyrics will feature.

  5. much better “heroine” than the other one,and pronounced the same so why not, actually she pronounces it this way… and more likely too, from their vibe, come correct yo
