Its not often we get official lyrics for Julian penned songs but my copy of Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories turned up today and I was delighted to see the lyrics for Instant Crush were included! It is such a wonderful song and reading the lyrics makes me adore it even more.

Instant Crush Lyrics

I didn’t want to be the one to forget
I thought of everything I’d never regret
A little time with you is all that I get
That’s all we make because it’s all we can take

One thing I never see the same when your ’round
I don’t believe in him, his lips on the ground
I wanna take you to that place in the “Roche”
But no one leaves us any time anymore

He ask me once if I’d look in on his dog
You made an offer for it then you ran off
I get this picture of us kids in my head
And all I hear is the last thing that you said

‘I listened to your problems
Now listen to mine’
I didn’t want to anymore, oh

And we will never be alone again
‘Cause it doesn’t happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chain myself to a friend
‘Cause I know it unlocks like a door

And we will never be alone again
‘Cause it doesn’t happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chain myself to a friend
Some more again

It didn’t matter what they wanted to see
He thought you saw someone that looked just like me
The summer memory that just never dies
We worked too long and hard to give it no time

He sees right through me, it’s so easy with lies
Cracks in the road that I would try and disguise
He runs his scissor up the seam in the wall
He cannot break it down or else he will fall

One thousand lonely stars, hiding in the cold
Take it, I don’t wanna sing anymore

‘I listened to your problems
Now listen to mine’
I didn’t want to anymore, oh

And we will never be alone again
‘Cause it doesn’t happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
‘Cause I know it unlocks like a door

And we will never be alone again
‘Cause it doesn’t happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
‘Cause I know it unlocks like a …

I don’t understand, don’t get upset, I’m not with you
We’re swimming around, it’s all I do
When I’m with you

And we will never be alone again
‘Cause it doesn’t happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away

Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
‘Cause I know it unlocks like a door

And we will never be alone again
‘Cause it doesn’t happen every day
Kinda counted on you being a friend
Can I give it up or give it away
Now I thought about what I wanna say
But I never really know where to go
So I chained myself to a friend
‘Cause I know it unlocks like a door
