"Latch" is a song performed by Sam Smith. The version with group Disclosure gave Smith is first taste of fame, and the acoustic version appears on his Nirvana EP and on his studio album In the Lonely Hour.

Background and releaseEdit

Disclosure originally thought that "Latch" would not be a good radio song because of the tempo. Also, when they heard Sam Smith's voice for the first time, they thought he was a woman. "Latch" performed well in the United Kingdom and reached No. 11 on the Singles Chart by the end of 2012. However, "Latch" did not become popular in the United States until 2014 when it reached No. 9 (almost two years after its release).

LyricsEdit

You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down (no, n-no)
You, you enchant me even when you're not around (no, n-no)
If there are boundaries I will try to knock them down (no, n-no)
I'm latching on, babe, now I know what I have found (no, n-no)

I feel we're close enough, I want to lock in your love
I think we're close enough, could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I've got you in my space, I won't let go of you (no, n-no)
Got you shackled in my embrace, I'm latching onto you (no, n-no)
Now I've got you in my space, I won't let go of you (no, n-no)
Got you shackled in my embrace, I'm latching onto you (no, n-no)

I'm so encaptured, got me wrapped up in your touch (no, n-no)
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch (no, n-no)
How do you do it, you got me losing every breath (no, n-no)
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest? (no, n-no)

So close enough, I want to lock in your love
I think we're close enough, could I lock in your love, baby?
I feel we're close enough, I want to lock in your love
I think we're close enough, could I lock in your love, baby?

Now I've got you in my space, I won't let go of you (no, n-no)
Got you shackled in my embrace, I'm latching onto you (no, n-no)
Now I've got you in my space, I won't let go of you (no, n-no)
Got you shackled in my embrace, I'm latching onto you (no, n-no)

I'm latching onto you (I'm latchin' on)
I won't let go of you (I won't let go, no, n-no)
I'm latching onto you (I - won't - let - go)
I won't let go of you (I won't let go, I won't let go, I won't let go...)

You lift my heart up when the rest of me is down
You, you enchant me even when you're not around
If there are boundaries, I will try to knock them down
I'm latching on, babe, now I know what I have found

I feel we're close enough
Could I lock in your love
I feel we're close enough
Could I lock in your love

Now I've got you in my space
I won't let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you

I'm so enraptured, got me wrapped up in your touch
Feel so enamored, hold me tight within your clutch
How do you do it, you got me losing every breath
What did you give me to make my heart beat out my chest

I feel we're close enough
Could I lock in your love
I feel we're close enough
Could I lock in your love

Now I've got you in my space
I won't let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you

Now I've got you in my space
I won't let go of you
Got you shackled in my embrace
I'm latching on to you

I'm latching on
To you
