Clean Bandit – Rather Be lyrics
[Verse 1: Jess Glynne]
We're a thousand miles from comfort, we have traveled land and sea
But as long as you are with me, there's no place I rather be
I would wait forever, exulted in the scene
As long as I am with you, my heart continues to beat

[Pre-Chorus: Jess Glynne]
With every step we take, Kyoto to The Bay
Strolling so casually

We're different and the same, gave you another name
Switch up the batteries

[Chorus: Jess Glynne]
If you gave me a chance I would take it
It's a shot in the dark but I'll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can't shame me
When I am with you, there's no place I rather be
N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I rather be (3x)

[Verse 2: Jess Glynne]
We staked out on a mission to find our inner peace
Make it everlasting so nothing's incomplete
It's easy being with you, sacred simplicity
As long as we're together, there's no place I rather be

[Pre-Chorus: Jess Glynne]
With every step we take, Kyoto to The Bay
Strolling so casually
We're different and the same, gave you another name
Switch up the batteries

[Chorus: Jess Glynne]
If you gave me a chance I would take it
It's a shot in the dark but I'll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can't shame me
When I am with you, there's no place I rather be
N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I rather be (3x)

[Bridge]
Hmmmmmmmmmm, Hoooooooooo
Be (9x)
Yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah, yeah, yeah


[Chorus: Jess Glynne]
If you gave me a chance I would take it
It's a shot in the dark but I'll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can't shame me
When I am with you, there's no place I rather be
N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I rather be (3x)

    This song means that wherever you would be, it would be Amazing! Like there is no place you would rather be. That is why clean bandit wrote this song since they are on a world tour right now. It makes perfect sense. You will understand the song more if you watch the video! It's on YouTube on their channel called The Clean Bandit. Hope this helps you guys learn the meaning of the song!

    Beautiful song. Would be able to listen to it all day and all night. Lyrics keep me awake. Clean bandit is just a beautiful group, which makes electronic seem more classic than anyone ever could. Their chorus and the electric tune just perfectly fits into the song, like a puzzle piece. Better than any other singers! totally recommend to young adults going through hard times. All hail clean bandit, and may the explanations ever be in your favor!

    Hi guys I believe this song is about someone that is obviously in love either by someone they miss or is in a long distance relationship. And also there's a lot of risk when being in a relationship but it will all be worth it if they give each other a chance no matter how far they are the love will always be there. I hope this helps a bit but it's just what I think! :) By the way I really love this song it's awesome! But yep just my meaning but please share if you have any other meaning to this song!
