Athlete - Wires (Official Music Video)


Follow Athlete: Music Online: />Facebook: />Twitter: /> Lyrics: You got wires, goin' in You got wires, comin' out of your skin You got tears Making tracks I got tears That are scared of the facts Running down corridors Through automatic doors Got to get to you Got to see this through I see hope is here in a plastic box I've seen Christmas lights reflect in your eyes You got wires, goin' in You got wires, comin' out of your skin There's dry blood on your wrist Your dry blood on my fingertip Running down corridors Through automatic doors Got to get to you Got to see this through First night of your life Curled up on your own Looking at you now You would never know I see it in your eyes I see it in your eyes You'll be alright I see it in your eyes I see it in your eyes You'll be alright Alright Running down corridors Through automatic doors Got to get to you Got to see this through I see hope is here in a plastic box I've seen christmas lights reflect in your eyes Down corridors Through automatic doors Got to get to you Got to see this through First night of your life Curled up on your own Looking at you now You would never know

Absolute goosebumps...I listened to this every day watching my sister go through major surgery. Then at this time last year when she was put into a coma and we were told she wouldn’t survive. “Looking at you now you would never know” rings so true as she fought her way back. Won’t ever not touch me...sending blessing to anyone else going through tough times 🙏❤️

This, for me, is one of those rare songs that actually makes me feel excited for the people who have yet to listen to it for the first time 😊

Ardie Octora
So underrated, need more good song like this
The Umbrella Corporation
Wow. One of my all time favourite unreleased tracks by Charli XCX & I've only just realised it's a cover, thanks to looking up the beautiful lyrics. I love both versions & both artists are incredibly talented. I love it when artists I love, get me into other brilliant artists. Thank f*ck for music. *_It gets to me, it sees me through..._* 🎄👁️💧💡

My mum would play this song to everyday so I would remember it because I caught meningitis when was 2 weeks old and it was touch and go for a while I was also born with serious respiratory problems and had to be admitted to a special care unit I also had lots of surgeries to try and figure out what was wrong. Early last year I really struggled with depression and anxiety and started injuring myself I listened to this song a lot throughout that tough time. This song has a lot of meaning and memories attached to it for me x
Andreas Mercado
WAAOOOOO!!!!!!! THIS IS A EXTRAORDINARY SONG!!!!!!!!!

anyone else notice how the tunnel and the lights at the back make him look like he has wings and he is a guardian angle over his daughter?
Alhammi Aliff
Hmm, the melacholic side of me always expresses itself whenever I listen to this song. A brilliant song like this should get at least an award( I don't hear them getting even one for this song). Siggghhh, I wonder why british bands are so under-rated when they are supposed to dominate the top charts.
DenialBecomesMe
Maaaan! Its been sooo many years since the last time I heard this song! Oh the memories...
8beedle
my teacher knows the lead singer of them
Oj Watts
I heard this song in my car last Feb' 5th. ........ I was on my way to see my gran in hospital....... we were told that she would never wake up.......... This is the song that i will always remember. Thank you Athlete

born premature i think. got taken into intensive care, born christmas day.
rikki87sufc
Its about his kid who was born with problems, not 100% sure what.
Katrina Li
I actually agree with this. The song is amazing but the video is pretty dull and doesn't go with lyrics at all. Shame on you, boys, I expected much better!
Andylocksigma
Great song, naff video!
Sketel
also disagree about Bloc Party. their music is pretty out there, but the songs are some of the most accurate popular social commentaries around, in my opinion.
naomi strutt
my sister was seven weeks premature and she had to go in an incubater. i luv this song i saw them @ the exeter pheonix in july and this was the very last song they did! emense atmosphere!!!
bulletfrank
my cousin wasn't so lucky
Joshua Clarke
Agree
U2film
This is your perfect song! :)
Ben Mellor
Disagree about the Bloc Party quote, but leaving my music mind open makes me entirely agree with your comment..
Alex Wallace
I love this song, but it kinda makes me want to kill myself at the same time...
originalfunfair
lol this reminds me of core d.a.b. radio station, used to play this so many times ;)
cloudbuster66
great sound,a mature sound ,with emotion
nate dogg
i remember when the skatepark i go to used to play this like 10 times every 2 hours it was great
Llibuth1
I love this song! Greenbelt was AMAZING!
Johnmac
This is a beautiful song. I love the staccato lyrics, they suit the emotion perfectly. Simply gorgeous
Ric Tinsley
This song is an account of lead singer Joel Pott's fear and hope as he bonded with his baby daughter after she suffered a seizure shortly after being born and was rushed into intensive care.
sajater
I love this music by its musicality and specially by the letter. It's so deep and sad and beautiful the way of showing the feeling about a difficult situation like that: have a premature baby and doesn't know if he will survive. It's deep
sajater
I agree with you about the metaphor for lines on a heart monitor. But about the fact that he's crossing a desert means what he may be feeling about it. In a situation like that shown in the song you feel lonely and everything turns to be complicated. A desert means that. He is crossing a desert.
emirss
it's exactly about that. but that kind of video would cost a lot
Kayla W
This is such a beautiful song.
Robert Lawler
beautiful song about a tragic reality....them 6 words sum the song up perfectly for me.
Erin K. M.
When I was listening to this song I pictured the music video a little differently - like the whole video is actually set in a hospital because the lines of the chorus are really deep and emotional I could imagine him...I don't know, actually running? or maybe crying?
rayolacer
this shit is too bad
MrRennet
I never understood why this song was underrated One of the best pop song of 2006
Jameela

Joshua Carter
Athlete are one of the best bands i've seen live along with james, twang.
Michelle Hanstock

Alhammi Aliff
yeah I know. But, imagine you're the person in the lyric. Time is against you. You have to chase the time to see your sayyy mother for the last time. I've just experienced how it felt recently. This song evokes the memory when I was in the similar situation as the lyric interpreted. Soo I hope that explains your qs.
Alhammi Aliff
a brilliant, melancholic song. But, after reading the lyrics, it is even more depressing.
Batty1995
this song i so old but is still the best on my list......

Goosebumps.. Remember at the time thinking, yeah good song but not concentrating on the lyrics so much. A couple we got close to in the neonatal unit made a very powerful video of their kids journey, featuring wires, brings a whole new meaning to this song for me. Can totally relate to every single word of this song having been through it myself

So this song randomly was added to my apple music library among 6 others. The other songs sucked and I had no idea how they came there but, wow, thank someone or a random glitch for adding this song because it's GOLD. It's reallllyyyyy good definitely adding this to my music playlists.

Its about his baby in intensive care, recalling the baby’s first night in a plastic box (incubator) and somehow this song reminds people of when there grandad died? Bizarre!
