From Other People's Heartache, Pt. II
All This Bad Blood

Oh Holy Night (Cantique de Noël) is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem "Minuit, chrétiens" (Midnight, Christians) by a wine merchant and poet, Placide Cappeau (1808–1877).

The cover of the song is track number 11 on Bastille's Other People's Heartache, Pt. II mixtape. A different version of the song, "Tuning Out", features a slowed down sample of "Skulls" in the ending, and is a part of the extended version of Bastille's debut album, All This Bad Blood. It is song number 13 on the record.

Background Edit

In December 2012, Bastille put out their second self-released mixtape Other People's Heartache, Pt. II online.

Lyrics Edit

Oh holy night, the stars are brightly shining.
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
'til he appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees,
Oh hear the angel voices.
Oh night divine, oh night, that leads to morn.
Fall on your knees,
Oh hear the angel voices.
Oh night divine, oh night, when Christ was born.
Oh night, oh holy night, oh night divine.

(Tuning Out version)
Hold me in your arms,
Hold me in your arms,
I'll be buried here with you.
And I'll hold in these hands,
All that remains.
