Peking Duk - High Lyrics (Feat. Nicole Millar)


Peking Duk – High Lyrics (Feat. Nicole Millar)

All that you give
Is what you don’t deliver
Stuck in a phase
Misguided by mistakes
Your addictive poison is dragging me down
Trying to swim out I’m stuck
You’re watching me drown

Lying awake
The colours all fade
From the tears on my face
I’ve let you slip away
I can kiss whoever, I’m wearing the crown
Time to get out, my love
Don’t want you, cause now

I’m high and rising
Alive now I’m fine cause I let you go
I’m high and rising
Alive now I’m fine cause I let you go

I’m fine cause I let you go

All that you give
Is what you don’t deliver
Stuck in a phase
Misguided by mistakes
Your addictive poison is dragging me down
Trying to swim out, I’m stuck
You’re watching me drown

Lying awake
The colours all fade
From the tears on my face
I’ve let you slip away
I can kiss whoever, I’m wearing the crown
Time to get out
My love don’t want you cause now

I’m high and rising
Alive now I’m fine cause I let you go

I’m fine cause I let you go
I’m fine cause I let you go

I’m high and rising
Alive now I’m fine cause I let you go
I’m high and rising
Alive now I’m fine cause I let you go

  • Nik says:

    What does this mean: all that you give is what you don’t deliver?
    Any further and deeper song meaning, anyone?
    Love that song!

    • mirayn says:

      Obviously this song is about leaving a significant other and/or letting them go and feeling the consequences of your emotional investment yet realizing newfound freedom and happiness. That particular line is part of the background info, the reason why she left in the first place. Maybe he has potential, but she isn’t receiving what she signed up for, or because his demons (i assume drugs if this is the route we’re taking) he has so much to offer but the situation is preventing him from fully reaching out to her. My bets are on the first reason.

      As for deeper meaning, songs like these can be easily interpreted into anything you’ve let go and brighter day has come of it, whether that’s a close friend who’s changed, drugs, or even just a bad job.

  • Lara says:

    When I heard this song on the radio I couldn’t understand a word I had to ask a friend what this song was called. I hate this song

    • unpop unpop says:
