[Intro]
Oh-woah
Woah-oh-oh
Woah

[Verse]
Like a moth to a flame
I’ll pull you in, I pulled you back to
What you need initially
It’s just one call away
And you’ll leave him, you’re loyal to me
But this time, I let you be

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause he seems like he’s good for you
And he makes you feel like you should
And all your friends say he’s the one
His love for you is true

[Chorus]
But does he know you call me when he sleeps?
But does he know the pictures that you keep?
But does he know the reasons that you cry?
Or tell me, does he know where your heart lies?
Where it truly lies

[Interlude]
Yeah
You should be with him, I let you go from time
You should stay with him

[Pre-Chorus]
‘Cause he seems like he’s good for you
And he makes you feel like you should
And all your friends say he’s the one
His love for you is true (Hey)

[Chorus]
But does he know you call me when he sleeps? (No, no)
But does he know the pictures that you keep? (Oh)
But does he know the reasons that you cry?
Or tell me, does he know where your heart lies?
Where it truly lies

[Outro]
Right here with me, babe
Where it truly lies
My bed, babe
Where it truly lies
In my arms, babe
Where it truly lies
Where it truly lies
Where it truly lies
(Hey)
Where it truly lies“Moth To A Flame” is the third single from Swedish House Mafia’s third studio album Paradise Again.The single was first teased by The Weeknd on his Instagram on September 12, 2021.Later, on October 19, both The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia shared a clip to social media that sees The Weeknd in a dimly-lit room with a beanie and a pair of sunglasses, while a snippet of the song is played with the caption “this week”. In the end of the video, the title of the song was revealed.Two days later, on October 21, both artists shared again a clip to social media that sees bodies laying around in a dark room and then it cuts to The Weeknd singing a new snippet of the song.It will be premiered during the 20th episode of the Apple Music Radio show Memento Mori, usually hosted by Abel Tesfaye, who will be joined by Swedish House Mafia for this particular episode. The episode is played on Thursday, October 21st.When you hear [Abel], it’s a blessing, you know? It’s not that hard to hear what you need to do [for the arrangement], because he is so dynamic in the way he expresses himself in a song. […] It’s like magic. You go to the studio and try to figure it out and it just happens. It’s hard to explain. But also he has a very unique voice that really sounds good on its own, so we really had to keep the music back a lot; we really had to make space for his voice. I think that was the key that earlier on we understood. Like, if this is gonna work, we need to keep it stripped and focus on Abel’s voice.We’ve probably heard [“Moth To A Flame”] 6,000 times, and it still gets me. I was in the car on my way to the studio and I was like… When you actually cry to your own music… it doesn’t happen with every song, but when it does, that’s like a mind-fudge, like a warp zone. I’m crying to a song like somebody else made it, but actually it’s us who made it. So it’s unreal. It’s an unreal feeling when you can connect with your own song even though you’ve heard it 10,000 times during the process, you should be tired of it. Like, if it still gives you those emotions after 10,000 times, then maybe it’s good.No. This marks the first time that the Swedish House Mafia has worked with The Weeknd.
