Sky Ferreira – 24 Hours lyrics

[Verse:]
The seconds run away
Then it’s rest
At speeds we can run at
As hours start to fade deep into the night
I’m not in the mood for laughing

[Pre-Chorus:]
It’s slipping away
There’s nothing we can do
It’s slipping away
There’s no tomorrow without you

(Chorus – part 1)
I wish these 24 hours
Would never end
Oh in these 24 hours
Wish to forget nothing

(Chorus – part 2)
24 hours
We still have time
For 24 hours
You’re still mine

[Verse:]
If this is new
Just can deal with it
In a way you could say
I was always the same
Hopeful for a while,
Lost in denial
I wish this could last forever

[Pre-Chorus:]
It’s slipping away
There’s nothing we can do
It’s slipping away
There’s no tomorrow without you

(Chorus – part 1)
I wish these 24 hours
Would never end
Oh in these 24 hours
Wish to forget nothing

(Chorus – part 2)
24 hours
We still have time
For 24 hours
You’re still mine

I wish these 24 hours
Would never end

[Bridge:]
I… I…
I… I…
I won’t tell no one
I won’t tell no one
I won’t tell no one
‘Cause in 24 hours
‘Cause in 24 hours
You’ll be gone
You’ll be gone
You’ll be gone
In 24 hours

(Chorus – part 2)
24 hours
We still have time
For 24 hours
You’re still mine

I wish these 24 hours
Would never end

(Chorus – part 1)
I wish these 24 hours
Would never end
Oh in these 24 hours
Wish to forget nothing

    I personally think Sky is singing about a night in which she slept with a boy who she really cared for, but knew he didn't really care for her. She is counting down the hours until she knows he will leave her. There is "nothing" they can do, because it's just not meant to be and she cannot force him to care for her the way she cares for him. I think the parts like "for 24 hours you're still mine" and "it's slipping away, there's no tomorrow without you". She feels very connected to him now, and like there isn't a life for her to live if he isn't in it, and after that one night, he presumably won't be. And if so, just as a friend. Actually this song has a very sad tone to it if you interpret it the way in which I do.
