Latch Lyrics
Jump to:
(feat. Sam Smith)

(Never [3x])

You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down (never)
You, you enchant me even when you're not around (never)
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down (never)
I'm latching on, babe, now I know what I have found (never)

I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)

I'm so encaptured, got me wrapped up in your touch (never)
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch (never)
How do you do it, you got me losing every breath (never)
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest (never)

I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?
I feel we're close enough
I wanna lock in your love
I think we're close enough
Could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)

Now I got you in my space
I won't let go of you (never)
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you (never)
Latching on to you
I won't let go of you (never)
Latching on to you
I won't let go of you
(Never let go, never let go)

Latch Info:

Latch features vocals from Sam Smith. and is the lead single from the duo's debut studio album Settle (2013). The song was released as their debut single in the United States on February 4th, 2014.

The song originated from an idea Disclosure had to write a song in a different time signature to other dance tunes. Guy Lawrence explained to Spin magazine: "We just wanted to make a song in 6/8, in that time signature. You know, the swung, triplet-y kind of sound. There's hardly any other timing in dance music than 4/4, and all we wanted to do is just make a track in 6/8. That's how it started."

The brothers hooked up with Sam Smith through their manager. Guy recalled to Spin: "We had the track done already, we had samples all over it—it was a Zed Bias sample, actually—and then we got him in and we just stripped them all off. He killed it. He wrote all the vocals in a day. It was amazing."
