Sam Smith – Nirvana lyrics

Oh baby, oh baby, oh we both know the truth
If it were the real me and you,
This wouldn't be the right thing to do
Now the room is so hazy, we're too lost in the fumes
I feel like it's just me and you,
Yeah we got nothing to lose


It's too late to run away from it all
It's too late to get away from it all
I'm done with running so I give in to you


This moment has caused a reaction
Resulting in our reattachment

Oh you take me to nirvana
I don't think this will last
But you're here in my arms


Oh baby, oh baby, oh, we both feel the same
I'm not gonna give you my name
And I don't think you want that to change
We're in this together, we don't know who we are
Even if it's moving too fast,
Baby we should take it too far


It's too late to run away from it all
It's too late to get away from it all
I'm done with running so I give in to you

This moment has caused a reaction
Resulting in our reattachment


Oh you take me to nirvana
I don't think this will last
But you're here in my arms

Oh you take me to nirvana
I don't think this will last
But you're here in my arms

    This song is about an affair between two people who are just in it for the sex. Nirvana refers to a state of bliss which is sex in this case. The male doesn't want anything serious thus he says I'm not gonna give you my name. Even though they shouldn't be doing this, they still do it because they have nothing to lose.

    I think this song is about two persons who knew they weren't meant to be together for some reason which explained in "Oh baby, oh baby, oh we both know the truth, If it were the real me and you, This wouldn't be the right thing to do", but they keep running to each other and they finally give up running away from each other "It's too late to get away from it all, I'm done with running so I give in to you" so they make the most of their time together knowing it wouldn't last "Will you take me to nirvana?, I don't think this will last, But you're here in my arms" but both of them doesn't want anything serious "Oh baby, oh baby, oh, we both feel the same, I'm not gonna give you my name, And I don't think you want that to change".
