“Stop This Flame” is a song by British singer and songwriter Celeste. The song was released on 9 January 2020 through Both Sides and Polydor Records. It was written by Celeste and Jamie Hartman, who produced the track with John Hill. The song is “driven by an insistent minor-key piano vamp” sampled from Nina Simone’s “Sinnerman”. “Stop This Flame” was released following Celeste’s win of BBC’s annual music poll Sound of 2020.

The song’s music video which was directed by Leonn Ward and shot in New Orleans was premiered on YouTube on 7 February 2020. The song was described by The Times as “up-tempo, piano-driven Amy Winehouse”.

LYRIC

My heart goes up
My heart goes down
We fall in love
And we fall we back out
I’ll give you anything you want
Anything you want
Anything, anything
Just don’t tell me no
You stop it still
Then you make it rush
You’re like a pill
That I just can’t trust
You tell me to stop but I keep on going
Tell me to stop but I keep on going
Tell me to stop but I keep on going
Keep on, keep on, keep on
You’ll never stop this flame
I will never let you go
Well who am I to say?
Maybe by now you should know
You got your somebody calling
You think you’re somebody don’t you?
I think you’re scared of keeping somebody close
You’ll never stop this flame
I will never let you go
Wasn’t it enough?
Or did I move too far?
It’s all too much
I think I must be mad to give you
Everything I had
Everything I had
Everything, everything but it still went bad
Tell me to stop but I keep on going
Tell me to stop but I keep on going
Tell me to stop but I keep on going
Keep on, keep on, keep on
You’ll never stop this flame
I will never let you go
Well who am I to say?
Maybe by now you should know
You got your somebody calling
You think you’re somebody don’t you?
I think you’re scared of keeping somebody close
You’ll never stop this flame
I will never let you go
Keep away from me
If you can’t withstand my love
Keep away from me
Away from me if you think you must
Keep away from me
If you can’t withstand my love
Keep away from me
Away from me if you think you must
You’ll never stop this flame
I will never let you go
Well who am I to say?
Maybe by now you should know
You got your somebody calling
You think you’re somebody don’t you?
I think you’re scared of keeping somebody close
You’ll never stop this flame
I will never let you go
