Song Meaning and Background of Fade Into You by Mazzy Star


Hope Sandoval, lead singer and lyricist, has stuck to her media blackout since the song’s release and never sharing the background of the song.


However, bandmate and composer of the track, David Roback has given some insight in 2018. “It came almost at the same time. We weren’t trying to write a hit song – we were just writing a song,”. “I think we had a melody and a feel and we just followed that feel. And that became the song… It was acoustic guitar and both of us singing and after we’d written the song then we arranged it for other instruments – piano and slide guitar and drums. But it started out as an acoustic song.”


Lyrics of Fade Into You by Mazzy Star


I want to hold the hand inside you

I want to take a breath that's true

I look to you and I see nothing

I look to you to see the truth

 

You live your life, you go in shadows

You'll come apart and you'll go blind

Some kind of night into your darkness

Colors your eyes with what's not there

 

Fade into you

Strange you never knew

Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew

 

A stranger's light comes on slowly

A stranger's heart without a home

You put your hands into your head

And then its smiles cover your heart

 

Fade into you

Strange you never knew

Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew

 

Fade into you

Strange you never knew

Fade into you

I think it's strange you never knew

I think it's strange you never knew
