The Weeknd – Blinding Lights lyrics
[Intro]
Yeah

[Verse 1]
I've been tryna call
I've been on my own for long enough

Maybe you can show me how to love, maybe
I'm going through withdrawals
You don't even have to do too much
You can turn me on with just a touch, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
I look around and
Sin City's cold and empty (Oh)
No one's around to judge me (Oh)
I can't see clearly when you're gone

[Chorus]
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night
Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust
Hey, hey, hey

[Verse 2]
I'm running out of time
'Cause I can see the sun light up the sky
So I hit the road in overdrive, baby, oh

[Pre-Chorus]
The city's cold and empty (Oh)
No one's around to judge me (Oh)
I can't see clearly when you're gone

[Chorus]
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night
Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust

[Bridge]
I'm just walking by to let you know (By to let you know)
I can never say it on the phone (Say it on the phone)
Will never let you go this time (Ooh)

[Chorus]
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

[Outro]
I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights
No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch

    hi evrerybody! id like to share with you some thoughts i have about this beautiful song.
    well, i think that this song says that when you really want something or someone and you are looking for it and then you yoe get lost in the searching becuase all of the distruction in the first place/and you forget what did you look for.

    The Weeknd has said the dark message of this song is about drunk driving and going to see someone while impaired. There seems to be a dual meaning also with drugs which is a reoccurring theme in most, if not all of The Weeknd's songs. "Blinded by the lights" could also be about the blinding lights of fame. The not sleeping until he feels the touch seems like an outright drug reference. So it would seem like a duality of drugs/alcohol while driving to see the one he loves and misses.
